Boro Boy Bari gives his views on the current state of Boro. How will we shape up over the important festive fixtures and what does the future hold for the fans?

Will we get presents in the form of many points? Bari normally writes for the fanzine but being many thousands of miles away at present he was just unable to hit the deadline for the Boxing Day edition.

My last fanzine article although with a very clear message was, more of hope from the series of games leading up to the vital Christmas and holiday period..

This brings us to the festive season’s vital and even more important games with every one becoming a more than dire need to sustain the urgent garnering of those vital points.  From the ever more increasingly difficult games that are looming.

The improved form has enabled the team to climb just above the relegation zone but with only the safety cushion of one game. Yet that is a great improvement and augurs well, more than just blind faith and hope. However, this is a distinct and better improvement to the season's first 12 games.

Although we have been severely hampered by a series of injuries to an already greatly depleted and reduced to a thin squad JW has been further hampered by the recent run of players being red carded and then not being available for the consequent important games.

Given these unforeseen circumstances the manager and team have performed reasonably well.  The sad effect this had on the Leeds game and that early Bamford conceded goal and then at Swansea being the foreseen glut of goals conceded.

Now, we must do even better against the teams in the up and coming fixtures. Against another of the two promotion chasing teams in WBA and Preston away. Plus it is IMPERIATIVE that we continue to win at home.

Thus lowly Stoke and lower mid table Huddesfield give us that chance to improve the distance between ourselves and the bottom three teams in the relegation zone. The Christmas and New Year games will also give a boost to the dwindling crowds and that may also vocally support and assist the team.
As we all make our New Year Wishes for the remaining half of this season. The best I can foresee is a comparative lower half safety position and a reshuffle of the whole team and personnel. With the continued introduction of the up and coming younger players.

Unfortunately, it appears no new players will be coming in as the finances continue to become even more restrictive. The likelihood is we are more likely to lose two of our better players and even this at greatly reduced true valuations. So be prepared for Randolph and Ayala leaving and maybe a couple more of the higher wage earners by the summer.

The Christmas conundrum is whether Woodgate will stay as the manager. I believe that the Chairman has promised him, come what may that he will be given the full season to lay down his marker and credentials. So as long as we do not get relegated Woodgate will continue as our manager.

I do not expect a radical improvement quickly by this diminished squad of players. But I do believe we will fight and be safe above the relegation zone in a place of safety in the lower mid table.

However, the future does not appear to be much better than this and survival.

Wishing everyone the Festive Seasons Greetings and at least a 8/9 points present from these coming four games.
