Have the club announced its Woodgate ?
 
 
Don't know if Ive missed it.
Seems a bit weird that Robbie Keane has announced that hes been asked to be Woodys assistant before the club announces him as boss.
Nothing on MFC site.

Just when you think things can't get worse.

The club are totally mismanaging the whole scenario.

Rob Fmttm, has just been on Smooth radio talking about what a great coup it is to bag Woodgate..
So it is surely a done deal now ?

There will be a press conference when all the coaching staff have put pen to paper, together with the away kit unveiling and a new push to flog a few more ST's.

Seriously.

He wouldn't have got the job at any other club in England.

Ian Huntley would have been a "coup".

"Reformed character" "Point to prove" etc.

It was a live interview, they phoned me. I honestly cannot recall using the word coup.
It has absolutely nothing to do with me not rocking the boat with the club, do you really want me to go on the radio and say what a nightmare this appointment would be? If it has all been done and dusted then surely we have to give the new man a chance and get behind him.

I don't want to be one of those that moans at you Rob but Gibbo could personally come to your house and waterboard you and you'd tell the press he did a great job

Funny that you should be the person who brings that up Emmersons_BrazillianDong as you are at the other end of the scale. Noticed most your comments about Teesside / Middlesbrough is negative. Glad you managed to escape down south from the dystopian that is Middlesbrough or at least what you describe it as.

I don't know what people expect Rob to say when he's asked for opinion. He's hardly going to be negative before a ball has been kicked when the football club is what his job revolves around.

Most people won't have had Woodgate as first choice but we'll still be positive because we want to see the club succeed. Plenty of time to moan about the appointment later if he fails. Until then I'll give him my full backing and try to be excited about the season.

I don't always agree, but who does?

I'm sorry you feel that way Jan. I can only assure you that I love the town and am the only person in a family which is about 50-60 big that has moved away. I've a massive vested interest in things working as good as they can.

It's difficult to see the place you love be dealt such a sh!tty hand at times and neither my family nor yours deserves some of the problems caused by criminality and safety in the town. I don't know your circumstances but I've had family members die because of some of these problems.

I work in Crime and Community Safety Strategy so perhaps my comments on these topics may be what you are referring to as perceived negativity?

We all have to be positive and get behind the team on a match-day. We don't have to be positive and get behind Woody at all. It is very much up to Woody, as it would be any manager to prove to the fans we should get behind him and give him our full backing. Respect and trust has to be earned not handed over as a right.

Equally, in passing judgement fans should be aware that a tradesman is only as good as the tools he is provided with to do the job. That is where recruitment and Gibson come in. Will he be backed with the right type of players with the requisite ability needed for Woodgate to do his job at an acceptable standard?

None of this is Woodyís fault. He wanted the job, who wouldnít though. Any failure will definitely be Gibsons not Woodgate's necessarily. Equally if he is the next Guardiola then Gibson will deserve huge credit, as well as Woodgate.

If Keane says no, I wonder who plan B is and how they might feel being second choice

Whatís this Ďwe all have to get behind himí actually mean.
Itís the kind of thing that politicians come out with.
Lets just be honest
If you like the appointment say so and if you donít say it.

It wonít make any difference whatsoever if some people remain Ďagainstí the appointment. They will still want the team to succeed.

Itís like you donít want Woodgate so you are going turn up every week and start slagging the team off.
Fans do that for a variety of reasons anyway

Well Rob can say what he likes, but I don't think it's an exciting appointment.

We're all going to look like a bunch of bell*nds if he does brilliantly, and I hope he does, but my money is on it all ending in tears.

The fruition to the proposed new system will take a few years to develop.

I don't recall the academy making too much money on its players sold, so why should it in the future.

It sounds to me like we will be buying bargains in the hope they become saleable gems or nurturing players in an academy with the same hope. Buying ready made quality will be a thing of the past. That said, we were not very good at that..

This good all unravel very quickly if not handled well

Didn't we get 3 million or so from Joe Bennett that mowbray spent on a bunch of players that later took us to promotion?
Ok we're not Southampton but our academy is decent and we've made a fair whack from it. And got some very good players out of it.

Hope springs eternal. Maybe he hasnít got the job after all.

It could all be a false alarm. Letís hope so.

He (Keane) told the Irish Mirror: "I've been asked. I met them yesterday and flew into Dublin this morning.

"They want me to come in as assistant manager and it's up to me to think about it. It won't affect me here which is key.

"I spoke to Mick McCarthy about it and said under no circumstances would I take it if had to leave Ireland and he was delighted with that.

"He said 'you're not f******g leaving here. They were his actual words. So it's up to me. I love working with Ireland and Mick has been great.

"I've been so busy with the Ireland games and I've not really spoken to my wife about it.

"I flew over to meet the Middlesbrough chairman yesterday and we had a good meal and conversation. It's exciting but the most important thing is I'm not leaving Ireland.

"It's happened so quickly. I've known Woody for 20 years and he's a good friend but I have to think about it.

"I saw on the news a few weeks ago that he might get the job, but I never thought he would call me. But he called me first so I must not be a bad fella!"
