re: McClaren in petition

I back Gibson's judgement. I'm not sure if sacking McClaren now will achieve owt in the long-term. Maybe review things in the summer, assuming that hopefully we don't fall into the bottom 3. If we do get into the bottom 3, I can't support him and I'm not sure how Gibson can.

By the way, I think Billy Hughes is a mackem. Former Blunderland player in the 1970s. Read his post - "The best thing we`ve had at Riverside since Lennie"

Like you Ch, in for now. If we still get the same spineless performances when the likes of Boateng, Franck, McMahon, Morrison and Riggot are back, we will be in the bottom 3 I fear and l can't support him. If we climb up the table along with decent runs in the FA or UEFA cups, I'm prepared to give him next season to get it right. If performances carry on as they have done the last 3 months, regardless of whether we stay up, then he has to go.

re: McClaren in petition

I prefer this analogy BB61...

into the Valley of Death rode the 17. This small band of brothers (and sisters), ready to defend the honour of their Gaffa against the baying hordes of nattering nabobs of negativity (at least for now).
T'was a valiant fight and one that will surely go down in the annals of history. In years to come songs will be sung about the 17 and stories will be told around campfires of the bravery of the 17.
With their battle cry of Come on Boro still resounding in the halls of negativity, their efforts shall not be forgotten.
(edited cos another brave soul has since joined the fight)

green_beret20 Posted on 6/2 0:38
re: McClaren in petition

Why such faith in a man in such a predicement and a man so unable to turn our team around.

Are you seriously suggesting that the having the Boat out of the team is the difference between competeing for Europe and relegation. Utter rubbish.

F*uk off with your 'Whos the most loyal fan' competition somewhere else. It's not impressive.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 0:41
re: McClaren in petition

No but having Boateng, Riggott, Morrison and Quedrue back in the side is the difference between relegation and Europe. That is the difference. There's no gaurantee that he can turn it around but he has earned the right to be given a chance.

jax_1 Posted on 6/2 0:41

I bet you won't be going to Stuttgart you pr ick. Have you got amnesia?

jwatso Posted on 6/2 0:45
re: McClaren in petition

i am going to Stuttgart, will be a good weekend, but enoughs, enough do u really think after sat and arsenal that this man can turn it round. your entitled to your opinion but i cant see it hows this going to get any better. maybe if charlie dimock comes back the grass on the pitch may be nicer but we are in the s**t

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 0:46
re: McClaren in petition

I was also at Arsenal and gutted but the team we had out that day wasn't McClarens choice of team. We need our best players on the pitch, it's brainless and too easy to make the manager a scapegoat.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 0:49
re: McClaren in petition

Don't get me wrong, I'm not happy with the situation we're in but it isn't all McClarens fault. He's made many mistakes but you can't do anything about injuries, players mistakes, refereeing decisions, drug bans, etc.

Judge him with our best team or as near to it, on the pitch. George, Frank, Riggott and Morrison will be back in the next 3 weeks.

jwatso Posted on 6/2 0:50
re: McClaren in petition

fair enough if thats your opinion, but how many teams in the league have every single one of there best players out every week i'd say maybe 1 or 2. its no excuse and its an easy one for him to make. from the players out there, wheres the passion, wheres the desire and wheres the pride. its the manager's fault that we never see this from the so called regular players, viduka,jimmy,mendy this falls to he manager to create this and he is failing

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 0:54
re: McClaren in petition

We had Downing out for half a season, Boateng, Riggott, Ehiogu, McMahon, Christie, Parlour, Mendieta, Quedrue, the list goes on.

It's not an excuse, it's a reason.

Actually Byrno it was posted in jest as a direct response to a McClaren out post and I didn't expect to get any replies at all.

--- Post edited by Lisbonlegend on 6/2 0:59 ---

jwatso Posted on 6/2 0:59
re: McClaren in petition

Ehiogu who he tried to sell about a week ago as he doesn't rate him,Quedrue who he dropped for mad dog poga who is nearly as slow as the human tortoise "doriva", .Christie hasn't played for about 2 years 5th choice striker. many other teams have had serious player absentees lets say that we have a different of opinions and be done with it, i just hope your right and i'm wrong and that if we do stick with McClaren we won't be in the championship next season best of luck with your petition i wont be supporting it

byrno Posted on 6/2 1:00
re: McClaren in petition

I have actually just read the whole post and not just the title. I agree alot with what you say.

Shame there are too many sheep supporting MFC!

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 1:10
re: McClaren in petition

Ehiogu was to clear the wage bill so we could sign someone.
Quedrue was carrying an injury earlier in the season.
Christie I agree with you.

Fair play jwatso, agree to disagree. I hope he can turn it around but if he doesn't then I hope we can find the man who can.

re: McClaren in petition

I'm in for now - can't put a time limit on it but I fear if things don't change soon the only way to get rid of 'the stink' will be to get rid of Smac.

I despair!!!! how can anyone think This guy can ever pull the club round,its him who has us staring relegation in the face.him who has the crowd leaving in droves,forget the cup for Gods sake,how many "decent" games of football have we watched in the time hes been here,the football is deplorable and has been for seasons now with the odd decent game thrown in.I think he is totally out of his depth in management and I also Think Gibson will regret standing by McClaren,(yes even Gibson can make mistakes)but for people to keep supporting him is mind boggling to me,if i was the chairman and saw my club dying before my eyes i would have him out NOW and try and win the fans back.the fans ARE the lifeblood of the club and this heamorage Must be stopped...SACK HIM!!!!!!!

re: McClaren in petition

What's this out of his depth thing? He won us the Carling cup, the firt and only trophy in our entire history! We've qualified for Europe for the first time in our entire history and then he did it again and our highest ever Premiership finish despite the worst injury list in the Premiership. Yes, he's made mistakes but he deserves to be given time for his achievements plus the fact he hasn't been able to field a settled defence or midfield this season.

It's far too easy to be critical and make him a scapegoat but he deserves more time.

McClaren IN!

re: McClaren in petition

The Premiership has been very poor for a few years, Carling Cup win although great was won with huge helpings of luck. Something that we were well overdue.

Last season was a success by the skin of its teeth, his Premiership record is probably not really much better than Robsons, even though he has spent much more on players (relatively speaking). The football has been dire for longer than i can remember with only a small number of notable exceptions. His players don't play for him, the crowd are totally against him. The so called most succesful time in our history and crowds are significantly down, think about that.

We are currently one of the two worst teams in the league. Problem areas have faield to be dealt with time after time after time. The squad is far too old with only a couple of players in their prime (we wonder why we have so amny injuries)

We've just suffered our worst defeat in over 50 years, a non league side took us to replay and should have beaten us, a championship side have done the same. Wigan put three past us at home, Villa put 4 past us at home.

Beating Sunderland has been the highlight of the last 3 months and everyone beats Sunderland, even Brentford.

Im sorry, but we have become an embarresment under McClaren.


He has to go.

OUT!

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 11:24
re: McClaren in petition

I agree with a lot of the things you are saying but it is our most succesful period in our history, we have got a crippling injury list, we did qualify for Europe twice and win the Carling cup so IMO he should be given 6 weeks to sort it out.

Why is it when we beat Sunderland 3-0 he gets no credit then when we lose a game he's lost the dressing room? Why is it when we draw away at Nuneaton the fact that we thrashed them in the replay is forgotten? Why is it when we win a game it wasn't entertaining enough yet when we draw 3-3 we were crap?

tom_c2k Posted on 6/2 11:27
re: McClaren in petition

6 weeks? From what i can see he's had a lot longer than 6 weeks to sort the mess out and he's proved himself incapable of doing so.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 11:30
re: McClaren in petition

6 weeks because in 3 weeks we'll have our injured players back and then 3 weeks to see if there's any improvement.

sproutruss Posted on 6/2 11:35
re: McClaren in petition

yes

green_beret20 Posted on 6/2 11:36
re: McClaren in petition

The carling cup and our first qualification for UEFA was ONE achievement. How many times do you have to be told this.

Stop scrapping the barrel.

The metal of a manager also involve how he manages his team without his best players and we're too extreme. This team should not suddenly turn into relegation fodder and then remain there for three month based on the presence of 3-4 men. A dip in performance yes, a three month losing streak no.

Birmingham play Sunderland the week before they play us. If we fail to pick up and points against Chelsea and West Brom. And of course assuming Birmingham beat Sunderland. Defeat at Birmingham could be the game where we drop into the bottom 3.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 12:27
re: McClaren in petition

It doesn't matter, as long as we are not in the bottom 3 at the end of teh season. We have key players to return and our results will improve when those players return.

Don't see what can be acheived by sacking your manager while you are right in the chit.It's not something to be rushed.Obviously, I am not happy the way the season has panned out so far, but, I'll stick with the guy.

re: McClaren in petition

Gibson does deserve our support but that's not the same as saying that every decision he makes must be the correct one. On this ocassion I think that he is wrong in supporting McClaren. This post has still not identified one positive about McClaren.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 13:16
re: McClaren in petition

Gibbo won't always be right be we should support the fact that he might get things wrong from time to time. No one is right all the time. Not even me.

How many more times do we have to listen to this crap.
Gibbo is wrong big time on this bloke.
It's the bigger picture i'm worried about and with Mac
in charge we are doomed.
Do we want to watch this rubbish each week?
Of course not but we've been served it for ages now
and unfortunately it's not going to change.
McClaren out.

re: McClaren in petition

Brian Tengiz, wrong list mate. You want the Mclaren OUT petition.

Lisbon, you say you are not hopeful of beating Coventry yet you still want the manager to say? How can you justify that?

Injuries are no excuse either. Our problems have been no worse than any other teams and should Mclaren not have learnt lessons from last season?

The man can't get us out of this mess, its time for him to go.

Mclaren out, now!!

He's our manager. We should get behind him and support the club. Help him to get things back on the right track. Not boo every time he stands up or make protest banners.

borodoosra Posted on 6/2 15:39
re: McClaren in petition

What an appropriate name. Just because you think someone is occasionally wrong does not mean that you want them 'out'. When a person starts to be more often wrong than right (McClaren at the moment) then it's time for them to go.

No, i didn't. I only asked Lisbon to clear up a few issues that were puzzling me as well as pointing out to Brian Tengiz that he had the wrong thread as this was the 'Mclaren In Petition'.

Read it through before you make impetious comments, please.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 17:40
re: McClaren in petition

"Lisbon, you say you are not hopeful of beating Coventry yet you still want the manager to say? How can you justify that?

Injuries are no excuse either. Our problems have been no worse than any other teams and should Mclaren not have learnt lessons from last season?"

I justify it because the players at the managers disposal at present are struggling. We don't really have a defence at present. We have 5 players in McMahon, Riggott, Ehiogu, Quedrue and Boateng who will make a massive difference to our defending as a team plus our attacking impetus aswell. This si teh reason I am not hopeful. I went to the Sunderland macth and saw us win 3-0 yet I said after the game that playing Cattermole and Doriva at home wouldn't work because we would have no creativity.

I was proved right but in McClarens defence I couldn't see what other options he had. Maybe he could have played Johnson on the left and Downing on the right pushing Mendi in the middle but I could see the logic of sticking with an unchanged lineup because if it went wrong he would be criticised for changing the team.

Injuries are not an excuse but a reason. Look at Newcastle's performance without key players. If a team is forced to play players of lesser quality then the team is not as good, isn't that obvious to see? What can the manager do? I admit mistakes were made in preseason, the first was letting Zenden go, then not bringing in cover for Boateng or Downing.

The former was the Clubs fault and not McClarens, the latter was also the clubs fault but there was a strategy by the chairman and manager to not bring in players for the sake of it because it would stem the progression of our young academy players. On the face of it it's a pretty good strategy but with injuries to so many of our senior and better players it has proved to be a disaster. Something which Gibson and the Club have to take as much blame for as McClaren.

There was an opportunity to rectify it in January but with falling crowds and the loss of revenue Gibsons hand has been forced and now we're ina situation which is not all the cause of the manager.

JonSina Posted on 6/2 17:50
re: McClaren in petition

Wasn't Gibbo gonna give Robbo another year until he got booed on that last game, Robbo certainly thought he was gonna be in charge as I remember.

The biggest mistake was getting him to sign that new contract just after the fans were given hope with the knowledge that he hadn't signed - a kick in the teeth that one was

sorry, but he has to go, how many games do we give him? lose the next six and we'll practically be in the Championship, and then we can't afford to sack him

boro_in_lincoln Posted on 6/2 17:51
re: McClaren in petition

What are you planning on doing with this list? I'm amazed so many people are backing a man who has spent 55m and has us on the verge of relegation.

Complete fools, I hope you're happy when we're playing Colchester next season.

London_Boro Posted on 6/2 17:54
re: McClaren in petition

I'm all for him staying. There's nobody else I can think of who's available and could do a better job at the moment anyway.

What's the point sacking him? The players have got to take responsibility also. It's not all down to McClaren.

boro_in_lincoln Posted on 6/2 17:56
re: McClaren in petition

I thought our fans were ambitious.

If you're happy to go back to lingering around the bottom of the Premiership, fine, but the injured players aren't the reason we're struggling.

Look at the team we have, it should still be mid-table. The man's a joke.

SMAC OUT

re: McClaren in petition

Are we going to have another season ticket throwing incident on our hands next match?.......

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 18:02
re: McClaren in petition

Robbo's situation was much worse than McClarens and Robbo didn't have McClarens injury list or European football to cope with. We will be a different side with Riggott, Quedrue, Boateng, McMahon, Ehiogu and Parlour returning.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 6/2 18:04
re: McClaren in petition

Spent 55m? Can I see your figures please.

Our fans are ambitious which is why we're backing a man who achieved our highest ever Premiership finish, our first ever trophy and first ever European qualification, or had all that slipped your mind?

chboro Posted on 6/2 18:11
re: McClaren in petition

Some people are letting their frustrations boil over and cannot or will not? look at the whole situation with regards to reasons why things have worked out like they have.

Look at Lisbon talking Shoite according to some but not to others. If your mind is made up and are not willing to even contemplate backing the manager for the time being then you are doing just as much damage as you are saying Smac is doing to the club.

At this moment in time the club needs our full support and too many are missing this point in their quest to oust the manager from his post. This will be doing the club much more damage at this moment in time than what McClaren is doing.

The effort put in by the players has been pathetic lately and that has played a very large part in where the club are right now - but of course this is Smacs fault, don't be stupid - the players decide how much effort they put in - not the manager.

BACK THE TEAM (including the manager) UNTIL THE SUMMER AND THEN TRY TO GET HIM OUT IF YOU STILL FEEL THE SAME.

gravy_boat Posted on 6/2 18:19
re: McClaren in petition

He's got to stay for now. Its a moot point anyway really, because Gibson is never going to sack him before the end of the season, so we might as well get behind him.

If we stay up, I'd give him one last go in the transfer market in the summer, and see where we are end of next season. If we get out of this, this season, I honestly don't believe it will be as bad next year. He must get us into top half though.

If we do go down this year, then fook knows.

re: McClaren in petition

I don't care if he stays or goes. I just don't like gutless Boro fan's near me kissing their badges one minute and then crying and threatening the next, only to show later with their tails between their legs hoping for a defeat to prove their point of views, gutless. If you don't want a Boro win tomorrow, STAY AWAY.

re: McClaren in petition

i'll go with it, i think we are only suffering now because of the high standards he has set for us as a club. we are light years ahead of robsons, whatever people say, but with the contuined negative attitude throughout the club at the present time we could soon be there again, so come on whether you like the guy or not its middlesbrough fc that matters, so stick together.

shaun86

add me to the petiton

I think a few more of you should be signing this.

SmoggyNproud Posted on 11/2 19:47
re: McClaren in petition

Yup..get your names put down. We've just beaten the best team in the league..it's was McClaren v Mourinho and guess who came out on top. Mac!! That makes HIM the best manager in the Premiership (technically, lol)

Lisbonlegend Posted on 13/2 10:58
re: McClaren in petition

That's 2 games, 2 wins and 2 clean sheets since the start of the petition.

Ahead of schedule.

re: McClaren in petition

I was wavering but Im now in the in camp now

ray192 Posted on 13/2 11:39
re: McClaren in petition

dont get me wrong here L_L.

i would not get on to him during the game as it effects the players,but in saying that i would definately NOT sing his name not a chance in hell of that ever happening because i just dont like the way he talks he could not inspire me if he tried so god knows what the players think of him.

before every game he says how good the opposition is,are we playing world beaters every i think not, try telling our players for once that they are some good and see if you get a response ffs .

RANT OVER.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 13/2 11:56
re: McClaren in petition

You don't like him cos of his interviews? It doesn't mean he's not a good manager though. Don't worry Ray, I'll sing his name for you.

ray192 Posted on 13/2 12:06
re: McClaren in petition

L_L.

i know what you mean but motivation is a very big thing in our days mate, i'm not saying he's not a good coach i'm saying he's NOT a good manager imho.

anyway i support the TEAM not the MANAGER.

C'MON BORO .

ps. that is any manager by the way not just smac.

Would you sing his name if we won the UEFA cup?

ray192 Posted on 13/2 12:26
re: McClaren in petition

NO.

i didn't sing his name when we won the carling cup either.

STEVE GIBSONS RED N WHITE ARMY .

now that sounds MAGNIFICENT lol .

BobUpndown Posted on 13/2 12:34
re: McClaren in petition

If Gibbo is OK with him for 4 more years then he's obviously aware of what is going wrong and dosen't blame it all on McC..

In general terms the squad, team and setup has moved forward under McC.. I'll not want shot of him because he's not an inspirational tho' clueless ex-pro.. or the colour of his hair.. I'll judge on football only..

but.. we need to win more games and play better football..

Lisbonlegend Posted on 13/2 13:35
re: McClaren in petition

Ray, that's actually a very sad state of affairs mate. You would let a peronal dislike of his interview technique detract from anything he may achieve as a manager.

zamboni80 Posted on 13/2 13:40
re: McClaren in petition

he'll turn things around I'd stick with him, not many managers have beaten 3 of the big 4 at home this year but then again we where beaten by mick mcarthy boys at home aswell.

ray192 Posted on 13/2 14:07
re: McClaren in petition

L_L.

get a fooking grip man when did i say that i would let it get in the way of how i feel about it i HAVEN'T just because i wont and will not sing his name doesn't say that i did not or will not praise smac for his achievements,i put my arms in the air and praised him for winning our first ever trophy.

sproutruss Posted on 13/2 14:25
re: McClaren in petition

No way should he stay, we'll not get relegated but Mcclaren will still serve up rubbish football while he's still in charge.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 13/2 14:27
re: McClaren in petition

Sing his fookin name Ray! SING IT!!

ray192 Posted on 13/2 14:32

L_L.

ok mate just for you .

anyway how are you today?.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 13/2 14:34
re: McClaren in petition

I'm good mate, sorted my ticket, flight and hotel to Stuttgart so just got to sort out stuff with my job and skiing trip to Andorra. Gutted I'll miss Preston away and Stuttgart at home though.

How you doing Ray, you still chuffed after the weekend? Been up to much?

ray192 Posted on 13/2 14:45
re: McClaren in petition

i'm very good thanks mate, no i'm still in cloud cuckoo land {ecstatic mate what a result}.

not been up to much really just giving chelski fans hell who live here .

enjoy your break mate have a great time .

C'MON BORO.

The_Commisar Posted on 13/2 14:50
re: McClaren in petition

Whilst driving in this morning (that remoinds me, the tanks almost empty, must top up) I thought
Hang on, if we win eiether one of the cups (possible, we have now had results against the top league teams) and avoid the R word, what message does it give out
Is this what Smac would say ?
"Actually, if you leave me to sort this out I can and will deliver the goods, so get back behind the chairmans desk Gibbo"

Or is it
"So long, thanks for all the money so far, but you've proved you can't be trusted I'm off to another club"

If we do win another cup, and he goes how will the fans feel ?

Lisbonlegend Posted on 13/2 15:05
re: McClaren in petition

Where'd you live Ray?

Lisbonlegend Posted on 13/2 16:57
re: McClaren in petition

Gibbo put his faith in McClaren so McClaren will reciprocate. The fans have certainly not put faith in McClaren so he would be justified in leaving despite any success he may bring our way.

ray192 Posted on 13/2 17:52

sorry mate for not replying sooner i've been out for a walk.

i live in a small village called creswell in northeast derbyshire a couple or so miles away from junction 30 on the m1 southbound .

I'd rather have Sam Allerdyce.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 17/3 8:26
re: McClaren in petition

No Grantus, the mention of your name whilst stroking me off would give me an instant floppy I'm afrraid.

You must admit it was an absolute MASTERSTROKE.

grantus Posted on 17/3 9:48
re: McClaren in petition

I open the door and you can't resist walking through. Your like an old irish fiddle.

It was lucky, thats all it was, lucky and you know it.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 17/3 10:27
re: McClaren in petition

You know it was in McClaren's Masterplan handbook for maximising the squad energy levels in order to obtain UEFA Cup and FA cup glory. You should obtain a copy, it's a good read.

grantus Posted on 17/3 10:31
re: McClaren in petition

I'll tell you what would have kept our energy better.

Keeping the gaddamn ball would. 37% possession, no wonder we were knackered, no wonder they destroyed us. That statistic is a joke, its an embarresment.

If we kept the ball for more than 20 seconds, our players might be able to play more than one game a month.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 17/3 10:37
re: McClaren in petition

Destroyed us? I've never witnessed so much destruction before.
