Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

Not content with being the only Boro skipper to lift a major trophy, under his management we have now won THREE games in January. Does he not know that we never win for about 2 months after Christmas?

SOUTHGATE OUT!

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

We also pick up 7 points over Xmas out of a possible 12. Does he not know Boro never win games over the Xmas period?

He's also trying to get Boro playing attractive attacking football, while having a solid defence.

Its one or the other Gareth, sort it out!

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

We prefer managers who mock us, patronise us with spin and hyperbole and convince us that you know nowt about football if it's not on paper. Southgate out.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

What on earth is Southgate playing at scoring 5 goals in a home game against a top 6 team. What the hell is wrong in playing for a conservative 0-0 draw with only 1 up front. And what's even worse, Southgate is not playing players out of their natural positions.....sack him.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

And what does Southgate think he's doing NOT taking up an assistant coaching role with the England squad, allowing him to concentrate 100% on the Boro?

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

The worse thing is he has the cheek to send out an attacking team and boringly win 5.1 rather than wait till we are 3.0 down, play with 4 attackers, and have an exciting 4.3 which is what we were all used to.

He has the cheek to ask overseas players that no-one's heard of to come and do a trial before signing them. Real managers take one look at the video, have a drink with the agent and do a deal.

Whatever next, fans leaving after the game, laughing, joking, talking about the events of the match as they sip their pints in the nops, Browns etc - too much joviality - we all much prefer deadly silence and a dread of returning to the stadium.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

can't be doing with this play two up front lark. They can score out of nothing, how are we going to get a solid 0-0 playing like that. And signing a world class defender on loan to check his fitness is shocking managerial behaviour, you can tell he hasn't got the badges.

Amateur!!

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

i'm not having this - if we dont put in a bid for Doula, Zenden, Geremi or juninho immediatley then i'm ripping up my season ticket and stuffin it down his tank top/suit combo.

if we dont revert to 5-4-1 then i'm off to support Leeds Durties

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

Even when we win, he still says there are things that we still need to improve on. Is he ever happy? Whingeing get! And why didn't he describe the home performances against Pompey and Blackburn as "magnificent"? After these games and the home game with Liverpool, he looked like he was getting it right. He never made any mention of the tremendous character and attitude we showed during these games.

If we carry on like this, then I might have to renew my season ticket in the summer, which will cost me 360 bloody quid! How am I supposed to be able to afford a holiday as well???!!!

JoJon Posted on 23/1 15:06
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

And there he is in every post-match interview, talking sense, fresh as a daisy, not a slurred word or a bleary eye or even a whiff of a hangover. What's the matter with these people? Don't they drink? I bet he doesn't even have a drag on a gasper at half-time.

Gah! What I'd give for a proper manager.

Boro_Gadgie Posted on 23/1 15:10
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

Gibson needs to get it sorted. Southgate doesn't patronise us with the same old cliches or by telling us we need educating. I think he showed his true colours when he admitted that he wanted us to play entertaining and attacking football. Does he not know that we don't like the word "entertainment"?

Southgate out, Round in!

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

he keeps making something called "substitutions". Which means when the game is won he rests players and brings on fringe players for a run-out and bit of fitness. What's all that about?? The "Tremendous" one didn't do that and he had badges.

Fancy changing a winning team with 20,15 or 10 mins to go so we can start with the same 11 next week!

Shocking!

Why doesn't Southgate cacoon himself with an entourage of "yes-men" cronies such as cone-men, pyscologists, a plethora of assistants who are rewoned to be complete charlatans in the game?.

Plus we're actually defending set-pieces now, with men on both posts - everyone knows the back post automatically takes care of itself, every time. This nonsense will never catch on.

Not to mention letting aged, overpaid wasters leave the club, rather enjoying than a back-slapping last pay day. Who knows when we'll need someone to amble gently into an opposition's midfield and give the ball away?

And what's this I hear about signing foreign players who we haven't faced in the Uefa Cup? I'll give him bloody Dong.

the_arc Posted on 25/1 14:13
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

The man's a liability! leaving Viduka on the field with two goals to his name. Doesn't he know the rules: anyone with a brace must be subbed immediately. Next we'll be having strikers scoring 20 goals a season. Thankfully, he didn't get a hat-trick but it was a close thing. Get rid!

And what's all this playing a settled side about? It's no fun for us fans trying to guess the team anymore. It must be boring as hell for the players as well. He should rest players more often otherwise they might, just might get tired at having to play more than once a fortnight.

Not to mention playing people in their right positions too. Where's the fun in that for us supporters? It used to be enjoyable to see how an ageing, barely adequate central midfielder with no pace would perform as a winger.

XXLshirts_fit_all Posted on 25/1 15:02
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

WHEN WILL HE re organise the back room staff into a more forward thinking revolutionary system used by sporting giants like the russian womens volley ball team. we need seperate coaches for each position whereby the whole team dont actually learn to play as a coheasive (sp) unit.

we also need an assistant manager who could motivate the players and fill them with confidence. he should have no footballing experience and a dodgy website that advertises his world renown courses

and ffs get a cookery badge!!

The GATE should do the honourable thing and walk now! i never wanted a man who had such a deep respect among the fans and staff to take over and put that resect and our club in jepordy, things can only go wrong if we dont act now!

Southgate is failing to address the issue of Viduka's rapid increase in popularity amongst Boro fans. We all know successful managers cannot be overshadowed by one of their playing staff - get shot of Viduka FFS if you want to be successful.

What about the goal difference? How can the southgate justify the fact that not only is it not in double figures, it's not even negative. It was a disgrace we didnt take off both forwards on Saturday after the first and sit with ten on the edge of the box desperately trying to hack the ball away for 85 minutes.

It's his growing popularity I am upset about. How can our manager be popular? It's a disgrace, he needs to shape up or ship out. I suppose what he really should do is win a Cup or qualify for Europe via the league or get to the UEFA Cup Final, that would send his popularity plummeting.

And don't get me started on this letting two strikers build a partnership....where is that getting us? I'll tell you - 16 goals for in 5 games? I don't go to see goals and attacking football!! Get Maccarone on the right wing in a 4-5-1 ffs!

I am utterly disgusted that we are not using the first half of each game to contain, defend and analyse the opposition in preperation for the 'real' match, which we all know doesn't start until second half kickoff.

Attacking football from the 1st minute is negligent, careless and will drive the supporters from the terraces and into the dundas arcade on Saturday afternoons.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

And when Southgate decides to play certain team members out of their position they usually do well (eg Arca) - what's all this about? Listen Southagte, in this area we've been reared on square pegs and round holes, just ask Bernie.

And all this making the beautiful game simplistic, let me tell you it is not - it's about reading and writing good tactical books and over-coaching with shackles.

Not coming away from Fratton Park with a defeat?

Pffft.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

What is all this trying to win the game in the last 15 minutes all about when we should be just settling for the point. The bloke is clueless, keep it in the corners and no attacking at last minute corners. THe bloke knows nowt.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

Not once have I seen Southgate make a "tactical" substitution which has made 4 team mates having to play out of position and result in the team completely lose shape.

The bloke hasn't got a bloody clue.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

And why no panic buys during January? Not even a reserve team midfielder from a Championship club. As for saying the players were disappointed at only getting a draw v Arsenal, just don't get me started...

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

And why did he not consult with Robbo before the Arsenal game, Isnt he aware that they always come here and give us a good spanking, usually by as many as 5 goals. Im getting a bit fed up with all this teamwork and 100% effort. This is not what Boro fans expect.

OverTheTopAussie Posted on 6/2 10:04
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

Yeah. What's this sending all our defenders up for a corner when we're 1-0 up against 10 men and looking comfortable leading to a breakaway goal costing us 2 points that we never should have lost, then in the after match interview refusing to blame the players for his blunder?









Somehow I don't think I've got the hang of this.

borobuddah Posted on 28/2 17:22
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

What did he think he was doing last night?

Running on the pitch and doing a clenched fist salute to the away end?

Needs to calm down, he's far too over emotional to be a manager.

Should learn offa John Neil, Stan Anderson, robbo and them and keep a sour face on, say nowt when the press are about.

He's turned out to be a worse spiv than wor Tel, you wouldn't see him running around like a nob'ed.

Out!

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

Those substitutions last night made my p!ss boil. Fancy giving Morrison a full half to make an impact when every fule kno that subs only are there to wind the clock down as you achieve a 0-0 at home to Liverpool in the first game of the season.

And as for teaching Boateng to take a penalty, the man has no idea.

And what's all this playing a settled side about? It's no fun for us fans trying to guess the team anymore. It must be boring as hell for the players as well. He should rest players more often otherwise they might, just might get tired at having to play more than once a fortnight.

Not to mention playing people in their right positions too. Where's the fun in that for us supporters? It used to be enjoyable to see how an ageing, barely adequate central midfielder with no pace would perform as a winger.

Four weeks later and nothing has changed WTF, Mr Southgate dont you read this board..we want changes and we want them now!
If your not careful you will have 2 20+ a season strikers in the team.

B_Hills Posted on 28/2 19:17
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

And Look we usually get beat at Sid james Park... So lets not be sending out an attack minded team full of inspiration and fight.. It is normal for us to keep our heads down as the Jawdess laugh at us for the next couple of weeks !!!

erimus73 Posted on 28/2 20:33
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

Why Why Why, hasn't he yet turned our wage barrier upside down and not signed ageing 'Boksic' style players who would not play for us if not for the excessive cash thrown at them. Where are the half truth's and cheesy grins when we have been beaten 7-0. I share your amazement at our Christmas consistency. The red book is now in the bin. How dare this non ex Man United man ignore our traditions.

sambaDTR Posted on 28/2 23:47
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

I'm sorry but this guy has to go. I was so sure we would get knocked out. I was expecting to go to the Coro, drown my sorrows and be miserable like all the other Boro supporters but I found myself happy and enjoying myself. Come on, thats not what a Boro Boy is used to! How the hell did Boateng run up, curve his run and put a perfect penalty in the bottom corner when he can't normally hit a barn door. Not to mention Rochemback and Xavier looking like world beaters in the last penalty shoot out. That's 9 different penalty takers in the last two rounds. HOWAY. NOWAY!

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

Isn't he aware we haven't got a journeyman midfielder from France in the squad ? What sort of preparation is that for an FA Cup tie with United? What if we need to chase the game in the closing stages?

Sort it out Gareth!!

OverTheTopAussie Posted on 1/3 3:14
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

And whats this trying to build a team with spirit rather than a group of talented individuals. And why oh why are Yak and Viduka actually passing to each other and creating extra goals, they're supposed to be greedy sob's with an eye on their next big move and no thought for the team result.

borobadge Posted on 4/3 11:28

and he wont let the skunks score against us...

come on Gareth man, have a heart and know your place!

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

Why the heck is he defending our corner and mocking the Geordies?

Does he not realise that he should have been fluttering his eye lids at Freddy Shepherd at every given opportunity..

Gareth obviously learnt nothing from his predecessor!

Out!!

There's only one answer to these disgraceful failures. He'll have to go and get his coaching badges.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

Using tiredness as an excuse against a fired-up rival and only managing a point when the same players have played and been victorious in strenuous midweek match.

Proper managers play the tiredness card when the team has been chopped, tinkered and unbalanced with lots of fresh legs who escaped any midweek match, but fail to put in a good performance and then lose.

Get shot of Southgate - he's too honest.

joseph99 Posted on 8/3 7:29
re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

Southgate has to go! He's create bedlam for the ticket office, long queues and even DEMAND... and just look what's happening now...tickets for a game against ManU have now become golden and sell out within minutes; even tickets appearing on ebay. WE KNOW WE NEVER SELL THE GROUND OUT EVEN FOR A SEMI-FINAL!

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

Just watched his interview on Radio Cleveland, whats this idiot doing - trying to answer questions honestly without putting up a smokescreen of an answer.

Also whats this about him liking Parmos, doesn't he know it should be a US V THEM situation like whats happen up at Newcastle. What will we achieve by being united as a club.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - Get rid before we become successful.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

And refusing to let the season fizzle out once we're just about safe. Anyone knows we should have played out a boring 1-1 or 0-0 draw v Watford, but the way we played, we could have had 7 or 8.

We always lose to Aston Villa at home so It better not be any different tomorrow.

Wait till the 4th one goes in. I can't do it. I'm in the South East corner and still recovering from a knee op, so I'd be stopped before I got as far as the corner flag.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's traditions

What the hell does he think he's doing, trying to hold on to Woody and The Duke with increased contracts?Doesn't the doyle know we let our best players drift off elsewhere when we have resurrected their careers.

Have a word with yourself Southgate !

What the hell does Southgate think he's doing?

Doesn't he realise that the Geordies always finish up higher in the league than Boro?

Cock of the North indeed.

Get it sorted Southgate - make sure we blow it against Fulham next week.

re: Southgate is ignorant of Boro's tradition

HOOF !!!!

Southgate is clueless , why oh why is he trying to sign players before the 31st August? Doesn't he realise that if he gets players in early that they stand a chance of gelling with their team mates early !?!?!?

That's NOT how Boro does things I demand last-minute panic buys at 23.58pm on Aug 31st

BOOOOOOOOO.....

andybarca Posted on 14/6 21:38
