That was bad. Felt sorry for Woody[B)]

Was hoping for a clean slate for everyone with us fans getting what we wanted with TP gone and a more attacking approach being bedded in.

Three games in and we are already booing the team off at half and full time[|)] come on guys.

It was embarrassing particularly with a second string team full of kids on the pitch.

Our support is not what it used to be, I heard more applause for Crewe last night than I hear most games for our own team.

I think some of our fans have this strange cynicism where for some reason they want the club to do badly.

It's becoming the new norm.
There was a lot of booing last season too.

Booing at the end of the Brentford match, even if some will say they were booing the officials, booing at Gestede as he's walking off, I expect there'll be more of it in games to come.

Seems to be less of a thing at away games.

I would never boo. BUT getting done 2-0 at home to Crewe with the likes of 30k a week Gestede on the pitch.. you can understand the frustration to a point.. people just want to see the Boro score a few goals and win a few games.

I only boo opponents and referees,the refs quite a bit tbh[:D], but its not a cardinal sin in my book. People pay money and shout very unkind things to our players, which are much worse than booing imho.

Passion and involvement, nobody owns how its shown do they?

Judging by the size of the crowd last night it was only the hardcore support in attendance. Not sure the booing can be blamed on fickle fairweather fans.

Getting beat 2 nil at half time off Crewe do people expect them to get cheered off ? Unfortunately people are starting to see the cracks already we have a second rate team with second rate signings and a second rate manager.

Gestede is just a pure bell end. He deserves to be boo’d but I wouldn’t boo a team who are changing a style with a new manager, lets be honest a cup run is good but I don’t think it’s what we need right now. We havnt got the biggest squad to play a second team in cup games.

I didn’t go to the game last night, havnt even checked what the full time score was or what the half time score was yet as I was busy. But by the sounds of it some young lads were playing, I don’t think they need the booing though. Maybe it’s a kick up the @ss for any first team players who were playing (if any) but the only player I’d gladly boo is Gestede no matter how many he scores, the guys an absolute joke. The amount of money he’s on, not one bit bothered and has no interest in leaving

As I said over and over and over again last season, the horrible atmosphere and booing was not caused by Tony Pulis. This is just who our fans are, they don’t turn up to get behind their own team they turn up to create a hostile environment for their own team.

They did it to Robson, McClaren, Mowbray (eventually), Karanka, Monk, Pulis and now Woodgate’s team is getting booed off at half and full-time 3 games in.

Our fans are considerably worse than any caricature they paint of Newcastle fans.

We need to be far more patient to ensure this new self sufficient model works out. Getting on young players back and making them nervous is not gonna help.

Supporters like to talk about effort and passion, maybe it’s about time the boro support showed a few of these qualities too.

I can’t believe you just typed that utter rubbish pog. [rle]

Fans are the same all over. They turn up to watch their team compete, give 100% effort to try to defeat the opposition. When players don’t like the first half yesterday, fans get frustrated and disappointed and vent frustrations in the way that has developed over time.

I have never booed ever, but I have shouted at players, managers and occasionally called them out etc in a game. Woodgate had no issue with the booing, thought it fair and even said if he had been in the crowd would have done the same.

You had a pop at Karanka for criticising the fans after the WHU game as I recall. Here you are having a go at the fans yourself, but doing so citing a number of seasons, not one game like AK.

Crewe were he better team in that first half and deserved their lead. It was like Pulis was still in charge. Tippy tappy sideways and backwards passing. The style of play promised was nowhere to be seen. Crewe were organised, made life difficult, pressed well too, far better than ourselves and took two chances and could have had more. We were as bad as I have seen in a long while, complacent as a team was only the half of it.

Woodgate to be fair changed things round and could do no more than he did to turn things around. Fletcher and McNair made a difference and others finally upped their game too. Fletcher and Bola took their goals well.

Penalties are a lottery, but Britt must never take another one. Brownes was terrible but there was huge pressure on the kid due to Britts early miss. It is the team that need to generate the positive atmosphere on the terraces through the game.

Booing now is the new norm,back in the seventies and eighties we had a lot more to boo about,I can't recall it happening unless it was near the end of the season,or protesting against Charlie amer,plus we had better songs back then and oppositions to antagonize.

coluka do you expect Woodgate to come out and say he had an issue with the booing? Clayton tried that one last season and got slaughtered for it, sections of our own fans booed him the following game. Deep down he won’t be happy

I did criticise Karanka for saying the atmosphere was awful against West Ham, because it wasn’t. They actually stuck with the team that day, his issue wasn’t booing it was some fans chanted to attack.

I was constantly told last season that I was misrepresenting Boro fans, “it’s Pulis, this is what happens to the fanbase everywhere he goes” and it’s taken 2 games to prove that was absolute nonsense, they were booed off on Saturday and booed off after both halves last night.

Considering they just wanted entertaining they were quick to boo off a team who come back from 0-2 down and scored a last minute equaliser.

It's all about context. I didn't agree with the booing on Saturday, especially as we actually played well 1st half.

I can't blame fans for booing last night though, as it's unacceptable for a Championsihp team to be two goals down at home to a League Two side, and the fans had every right to let the players know they weren't happy.

As for the booing of Gestede. It probably is a bit harsh but I think the frustration with Gestede boils down to the fact he could have left the club last season to join Millwall, and annoyingly chose to stay.

It would have been a much needed fresh start for him, giving him the opportunity of first-team football, and would have been a big wage off our overall wage bill but instead he's chosen to stay and essentially steal a living.

Pog, he didn’t need to say what he said, he was not asked or prompted about the booing, he chose to bring it up and support those that did, so I don’t buy what you maybe are implying. Woodgate is a fan and clearly speaks like a fan would much of the time. He called the first half display in honest fashion he described it as appalling.

Of course players wont want or like booing and it can affect in one of two ways, anyone with any self motivation would use it to show those that booed their true self. If they cant accept criticism, they dont deserve the privileges they are afforded, they should take it on the chin and man up, not be snowflakes. Woodgate clearly went through them like a dose of salts at half time. I would expect Woodgate used the booing as a motivational tool to extract the ssecond half performance. The same fans applauded them off the pitch in defeat remember.

You are criticising our fans over time over several managers. Not one of our managers or coaches has ever gone that far, never. Why as a fan is it ok for you to be critical, but not any manager. AK was wrong, he was slow to correct it yes, but he did not deserve the animosity that many bitter fans threw at him for the failure to provide the missing components needed to stay up. Gibson and Bausor failed to deliver the quality of pace and creativity we needed and have done with every other manager or coach since.

Booing in the 60`s 70`s 80`s was common at most home defeats at the whistle.Granted it wasnt a full salvo but the North Stand at Ayresome where I spent 24 of my 26 seasons at AP wasnt called the RA RA stand for its support, it was the noise that came from it if play broke down or we let a goal in.

The worst treatment I seen and heard was given to poor Bobby Murdoch.. was awful to witness.

“You are criticising our fans over time over several managers. Not one of our managers or coaches has ever gone that far, never.”

What on earth are you rambling on about?

They probably had little idea how our fans treated the previous guy, nevermind the ones that came before that guy.

Robson said the booing he got on the final day made his mind up to quit.

McClaren said the fans needed educating.

Mowbray blames negativity around the club on fans going on phone-ins and social media.

Karanka called the atmosphere awful.

Even Ian Holloway once said he’d never seen a group of fans do so little to help their team.

If any manager read that list out in a press conference he’d be out of a job, our fans would be foaming from the mouth that someone held up a mirror to them.

All you can do is what Pulis and now Woodgate is doing, give the old “they have every right, they pay their money” blah blah but they know and the team now the toxic atmosphere our fans create is impacting the team.

You are selecting one off comments out of the context they were said in. They were all one offs after particular games and performances in the heat of the moment.

You though are criticising our fans over several seasons under several managers, not a one off game as well you know. It doesn’t wash in fairness and is a little hypocritical given your own criticism of AK for his comments. Karanka will not have understood the reasoning behind the chants at WHU game. Cultural differences occasionally need factoring in.

Karanka praised the Boro fans and the atmosphere repeatedly. His comment referred to one game only and he (eventually) apologised, albeit it a little reluctantly.

As a non booer I have to say that there was more booing when I first started going in the 1970s. There was more aggression, probably caused by standing, drink and less female fans. The Riverside is now more sanitised and quiet, which is why you hear the booing more.

Interesting question. I'd say Mr Woodgate because Frank is wanted by all connected to the club and he also has the ban in his favour if his position is questioned.

Reading this forum I can see many think Mr Gibson has made an error. 2.5 games in and the boos are heard - this isn't a good sign if this form rolls over for another month or so.

They lost a game badly and the fans booed. Its not unreasonable behavior. It was the manner of the defeat that brought on the reaction.

If they win next time out they will receive huge applause. If they lose next time out but put up a good show I suspect that they will also be applauded.

Thats how the game works, all of those involved should be comfortable with that.

That game was essentially a cup final at home, there isn’t a set of fans in the world who couldn’t get up for a game in those circumstances.

I always think wtf when incorrect comments like the above are made. Although i can not prove this, but I doubt anyone who did boo was aiming the boos at the new head coach. They will have been booing the teams first half performance, which as Woodgate himself said, the performance was “Appalling”.

Nobody will have booed Woodgate
