We'd better wait til the end of the season before we mock Bournemouth for appointing Woodgate
It’s a shocker of a decision really by the Bournemouth hierarchy and I’ll be amazed if they now make the playoffsI'd say most are respectful for whats he's done, and the way he's handled himself. The anger is at 'those upstairs' for making, or not making, great decisions over recent months
JW “There was an agenda even before I got the job. People didn’t want me to get the job. I’d say it was 50/50 or maybe 60/40 against me getting the job from the supporters."To be honest, he received dogs abuse. Was he a good manager? Of course not. Was the personal abuse justified? Not in the least. He wasn’t accepted from day one in a lot of people’s eyes- and boy did they let him know.
Absolutely spot on , what an upstart he’s looking . So now it was the Fans who scuppered him and nothing to do with the fact he’s as thick as pig..... do one Woody and I hope you bomb ( again )JW “There was an agenda even before I got the job. People didn’t want me to get the job. I’d say it was 50/50 or maybe 60/40 against me getting the job from the supporters."
NYD I think most folks wanted an experienced manager, Monk wasted millions and Pulis had us playing some awful football. His best decisions were forced thru injury.
JW “I got the job, results weren’t going our way and I was just getting a barrage of abuse"
NYD Brought on by not playing how he set out to play.. bringing on Gestede and throwing the plan out of the window at the first opportunity.
JW You change it around, win four on the spin and win manager of the month and then they’re all with you.
NYD Forces charges brought about thru injury.. almost exactly like like Tony Pulis.
JW Then the next minute you lose a couple and it’s bang, bang, bang again.”
NYD The next minute you're club is facing the prospect of relegation with none of the staff seemingly confident of what what going wrong or how to turn it around.
I like most fans did not want an inexperienced coach stepping into the big seat, but as it was revealed that JW was going to take the hot seat, I like most other fans got behind him 100% to say otherwise is a pretty big slap in the face. When he got the job at Bournemouth despite them being direct competition for our promotion chances I still wished him well and hoped there would be some scenario where both Middlesbrough and Woodgate could prosper. Imagining a Boro v Bournemouth play off final with Middlesbrough winning and Woodgate being offered the Bournemouth job on a permeant basis.
Not sure I'm too bothered now to be honest, the more I see of JW's snide comments against us boro fans who backed him, supported him and sang his name throughout matches. Johnny Bournemouth can do one! Lets have a Boro vs Cardiff final and bury a few ghosts of the past!!
