He did OK for us [^] One of a long line of scapegoats, mainly because he came from the South.

He did nothing of note for us at all, 5 million pound for a nothing player, wasn't even as good as Morrison who he replaced for a lot more money.

Did as much today as he ever did when he played for us.

When people talk about Southgate's managerial record I always think of Gary O'Neil, Shawky, Digard and co. We still haven't recovered from that disaster.

He certainly wasn't as bad as people make out, he played over 100 games for us.

I can think of plenty of others that cost more than £5M that were much worse.

Like I said, Boro fans love a scapegoat...just ask Downing !

A few clapped him when he was warming up today
I certainly wouldn't go that far
For me he had a decent first season for us , when he played on the right.
He was then switched inside, and did very little for the next two and a half years

He was alright for us, always put a shift in. He was never a flair player and I think people expected him to be something he wasn’t.

It’s absolute nonsense to say he was awful.

The biggest disappointment was how good he was at Portsmouth and based on those performances being exactly what we needed to how he actually performed for us, his impact and influence was nowhere near what I and many others anticipated.

Saw Gary play many a time at Pompey. Tony Pulis gave him his first senior game. He was a bright prospect along with a winger Matt Taylor. He played for all the England Youth teams upto U21's. However since leaving Pompey he became injury prone and that has hampered his career. When he came to the Boro,I dont think he was ever 100% fit. He had the nrain but his body couldnt do it. Never quite fulfilled his potential. However, a nice grounded bloke who always had time for the fanspcc despite the dogs abuse he was given here.

I understood why Southgate brought him in. His game was based on stamina, energy and constant pressing. Southgate wanted us to play that game, but his buys were awful.

O'Neil was nothing special in the end. Ran about but didn't create, or score, or break-up play, or dominate midfield, or pass particularly well...

Half decent player in an awful team. Certainly not one of Southgates worst signings. Digard, Shawky, Aliadiere, Dong Gook etc can fight that out.

GON was solid for us, mostly a 6/10 player who worked hard every time he was on the pitch and never shied away from having the ball. He should not be blamed for our relegation in 2009.

It was Southgate's disastrous decision to sell or release Cattermole, Boateng and Rochemback in 2008 and replace with Shawky ([rle]) and Digard that did that. Once Digard was injured long-term, he moved GON central to cover, but the damage was already done

Gary O'neil was not very good for us.

Literally a headless chicken.

I still laugh from when I read on here from the clown OnTheMap. OTM was adamant GON would play for England[:D]

God I miss OTM. He made me giggle on here at times.

Maybe because he couldn't shoot, pass, tackle, cross or head?

LeeTublin

Exactly what Indeedio just said.

England U21 have had a lot of players who have failed to make the step up. GON was one of them because he simply wasn't good enough and it was clear as day.

He was poor for us.

Spot on.

I've seen Jack Russells with a better football brain. He'd spend the entire game getting touch tight just after the player had moved the ball on.

I think a lot of the resentment came from a tweet(?) his wife made saying she hoped we missed the play offs so they could go on a family holiday. From then it went down like Nicky Bailey.

"SEASON 2008/2009 HE WAS BORO'S BEST PLAYER" [:D] Not really much of an accolade that mind.

He was a good runner and good golfer. Couldnt pass, shoot or cross.

Digard probably was a good player but he was made of glass and as much use as a chocolate dildo for us.

Not so much of a problem if you have a decent squad to cover... we had Shawky and Josh Walker. They aren’t even league 2 players. Literally for Walker.
