I thought carrick put the woodgate stuff to bed quite will. It was about him and his relationship with woody. I’m fully on board with woodgate now, especially as they said they are looking for an assistant for him
Yep.A teessider, a mackem and Geordie turned up to take Middlesbrough training.
The players turned to each other and said "Is this some sort of a joke?"
Chris Wilder said we were top of the XGS table FFS!!!Let's see when he's under pressure, which Woodgate was when he made those comments.
Made it to the reserve team apparantly!So back to carricks so dad - playing for us
To say he was lying is a strong accusation. I'd be interested to know what you base it on?I love this guy. Poor fella looks stressed as hell. He also touches his face when he lies.
I think he's going to be brilliant for us.
Hurrah, someone manages to use the press conference as an excuse to have a go at Bausor - think I've got a full house on the toxic fans bingo card.
I'm sure many football deals have fallen down because of the personality of the CEO, you hear about it so often.
"...the money was right, the club was right, the manager wanted me but I just thought the CEO was a bit dull and so I didn't sign for them....
To be fair to Bausor, ive been in his company at a Boro supporters event and he struck me as a nice fella, had good craic and wanted the best for Boro and was very enthusiastic. I can only speak as i find.Scott also said every player signed is a team decision. Wilder might disagree. Mind if bausor is involved in tbe process of deciding what is a good player then i dont blame managers for grumbling about the process. What a dull personality bausor is. No wonder we struggle to entice players here and get deals done.
Wilder said every player signed was a team decision!! I don’t get the beef with Bausor? He’s a commercial guy. Dull? Fcuk me.. what do you want? Hawaiian shirt and a straw hat? We want the best players we can get.. we are not the first choice for any club that wants to give their prized player away for nothing. It doesn’t happen like that!!Scott also said every player signed is a team decision. Wilder might disagree. Mind if bausor is involved in tbe process of deciding what is a good player then i dont blame managers for grumbling about the process. What a dull personality bausor is. No wonder we struggle to entice players here and get deals done.
It started on time.. no one offered me a sandwich.Did the presser start on time?
I remember Woodgate wanted that example setting early doors, presser didn’t start at one minute past under him.
Were there sandwiches provided?
He’s defo whipped out his dream list of Man Utd u21s!!Scott saying that Carrick didn't seem to have "an ambition to move quickly" was definitely a veiled dig at Wilder like. All but confirms that we were right
I liked the comment made, "probably already bored him to death" though, when he referred to his relationship with Carrick and their offices being next to each other. It encourages me to think that Scott is an enthusiastic character, which is what we want.
I can just imagine him bursting into Carrick's office every 5 minutes, some stats he's printed off transfermarket.
Hopefully they will already be liasing with regards to which players to target. Karanka was able to use his Mourinho connection to bring Bamford here. Would be great if we could being in a player of similar potential.He’s defo whipped out his dream list of Man Utd u21s!!
Keiron Scott will be like a kid in a candy shop with Michael Carrick and there’s no doubt that Carrick himself will want to find his own Rooney, Ronaldo & Ferdinand to have in his team. HIS TEAM by the way, that’s a pretty big difference from Wilder not wanting academy lads or Warnock’s players.
First and foremost we need a few points with the present squad of players to give us some breathing space before the World Cup. Then we can start to dream and plan. But looking at the table there is a lot of work to do on the training pitch and breathe belief back into the players.Hopefully they will already be liasing with regards to which players to target. Karanka was able to use his Mourinho connection to bring Bamford here. Would be great if we could being in a player of similar potential.
