What do Boro fans want?
With Aitor we were too defensive and got relegated (which as we were just promoted shouldn’t have been the big shock it was for boro fans)
Monk is attempting a more attack minded set up, not all about possession, allows long balls but sometimes we concede.
What do you want from a manager, I’m intreagued - play Barcelona esc football not concede many, romp the league, go up and win the premier league? Because we are Middlesbrough, not Man City.

I think we need to be slightly more realistic. I see traore cops a lot of the criticism I think we have to bare in mind he’s only 21 - clueless at times yes, but worth the time and effort as our ‘young player of the year’.

To summarise I think we’ve turned into an entitled fan base like Newcastle which hurts me to say - we think we have the right to win every game, have the right to stay up and ultimately very fickle.

I know most will disagree but I think a lot of fans need to improve from the screaming and crazy balling I hear at home games.

What do Boro fans want?

Plenty of other 21 year olds about that are contributing to their team. The 'he's only 21' line can only go so far - he's played 40 games for us as an attacking player and has scored no goals, been sent off once, given a peno away and missed the team bus.

Potential I cannot deny, but we need to see this potential realised.

We are entitled fans though that think we should walk the league when we were only 6th net spenders. I think we've got a good striker in Britt, but we need some creative midfielders to link up. Be happy with playoffs this season, Aston villa came down before, spent a BOMB, and dived. its not a case of buy X get Y.

I’d just like us to be able to compete with the giants if the game such as a Burnley, Stoke, Brighton, Bournemouth Swansea and Huddersfield. I’d even be happy if we could compete with Wolves & Cardiff

What do Boro fans want?

The same as I've ever wanted
A team with fighting spirit,never say die.
Willing to graft and turn on the skill as well
They don't have to be world beater s,in fact I love it better when we were the underdogs.
Money has ruined football.
Everyone of our players are millionaires I'd guess?..that's ridiculous
I saw no pride or passion on Saturday

What do Boro fans want?

A team that connects and clicks with the fans.

I can name 3 games over a 30 year period.

1. Liverpool 2-2 Boro under Karnaka a real connection in which everyone was on the same page.

2. Boro 2-1 Valentine’s Day 88ish live on team. Back to back promotions, no big hitters just a great team.

3. Blackburn 0-4 Boro. A powerful win just before the banik Ostrava game.

As well as the connection the chance of a fa cup win.

What do Boro fans want?

certainly don't think we should be entitled to win every game, even though we are in a division where we should be capable of beating every other team in it. I accept sometimes things won't go to plan, I accept sometimes we won't get the rub of the green. I even accept and expect that on occasion we will be out-thought in games. What does upset me is that at the moment not only are all of the above happening too frequently, but we are consistently being out-fought and that is unacceptable.

North [^]

Also, What we should remember is that Gibson’s target was automatic promotion. He promised to try to do all he could to implement change that he knew needed doing. He even stated he knew exactly what needed to be done and was foccussed in doing it. He has cleverly backed the manager with incredible resources. Unprecedented spending. However he managed to recoup a small fortune too. Clever [^]

Monk stated his target was auto promotion at the start.
A couple of weeks ago, one of the players stated the minimum target was the play-offs at least, think it was Braithwaite but cant be sure.

Have the goalposts been moved as the Monkster’s season rolls slowly backwards?

So what I want is to see the Chairmans vision, aims and targets given a good go. I think he (Monk) has the resources to achieve at least close to that aim. I think his signings were largely seen as improvements and enthusiastic British lads to deliver the target.

Unfortunately, it is turning to ratsh*t and Monk can’t explain it satisfactorily, he is seemingly solely blaming the players mistakes, which is correct to a degree, but not the bigger picture. He needs to look in the mirror too.

I Just want to see everyone busting a gut to achieve the stated aims and target. If they fail trying NO PROBLEM, but they are failing by going through the motions. Some of the players actually smile at the end of games lost. I never smiled when I lost in the moment at any sport.

Oh and GM gone

What do Boro fans want?

We want superstars and excitement..
Robbo [^]
Aye but we don't want relegation and we want a trophy and a trip to Europe..
McClaren [^]
We need to be more like arsenal but get a young coach with fresh ideas and loyalty..
Southgate [^]
Too lightweight, we need someone old school to bring in some proper British blokes..
Strachan [^]
Not like that, we want to have our own identity bring in some boro lads and buy some bargain basement gems..
Mowbray [^]
Nah, man we want someone like Mourinho lets start doing things right. We need to be back in the prem. A few cup runs would be nice..
Karanka [^]
He's too defensive we need to take the shackles off, let the players just have a go! C'mon anyone but Karanka..
Monk [^]

What do Boro fans want?

Garry Monk out of this football club for a start.

MightyDuck nailed it earlier on. Boro fans who aren’t grateful for being 18 points off the pace and not seeing any good performances all season are often told to “go and support Man Utd” and “what do you expect, Barcelona?” but the reality is we’d just like to be able to compete with the likes of Burnley, Bournemouth, Watford, Huddersfield, Brighton, etc.

These clubs were all at the same level as us to so long ago, and Boro have made plenty money available so what is the problem?

The people running this club are incompetent.

I want a club that is run properly, a club that leads when it comes to making decisions not one that is months behind the fans. One that makes decisions for the good of the club, not one that dithers trying to preserve some sort of reputation and then looks for the cheapest option available.

One that embraces there’s a big wide world out there when it comes to managerial options and is run like a modern football club.

We did that for 3 seasons but you still came on here complaining about the manager, the kit man, the warm ups, the way the lines were painted on training pitch #4, the colour of the grass etc, etc [:D]

OP sounds really out of touch! All expectations have been listed in previous posts.

All I will add is we take nothing for granted, roll with the punches, take the highs and the lows and the majority of us have reasonable expectations.

This season? Well below par in attitude, application and effort. That is and always will be a no,no.

We have a lousy manager. That seeps through the club and the team. In this case quite quickly. Unless he goes it is only going to get worse. Much worse.

What do Boro fans want?

Not to be receding faster than the tide going out at Redcar, and not to be so embarrassingly second rate compared to clubs in our league.

We are conceding worst goals than when Mogga was in charge and Gibson said he wanted to boo his team off the pitch.

The OP should address the question to Steve Gibson and might be surprised that he agrees with all the criticism on this board.

Gibson will be gutted and embarrassed as the majority of fans on this board so stop being so willing in accepting second best standards as fait acompli for this football club - we can and must do far,far better

Hope you are tighter Gibson, Traopatony.
But wouldn’t he have already sacked this fraud if you are right?

What do Boro fans want?

What fans want is a cohesive team that competes every week and wins more than it loses - what they want is a team, in the natural sense of the word.

What we have is a disparate team of individuals, no pattern, little discernible shape and certainly no identity.

It feels like WGS deja vu.
