boro's battling display wasnt easy on the eyes but many a time we have come away from the ground complaining about a lack of grit and determination but yesterday we saw a poor team work hard and get three vital points.
now im a big believer in the old saying of the league table doesn't lie and the league table despite 3 more points shows we are a really poor team which was clear to see time and time again against cardiff with our lack of movement and awful control. defensively we were solid but upfront we have been an embarrassment all season. scott mcdonald has been a awful signing, he struggles to run with the ball, control it and frankly do much of anything, his lack of height and strength means he simply is never going to make it in the english leagues.
now i had a thought before saturday, shearer took over at newcastle to stop his fav club from going down and failled and mowbray has basically took over for the same reason so as he only has a contract till the end of the season, if he fails and we do go down will he walk away just as shearer did at newcastle?
Nothing like firing a rocket into space only to see it fall back down to earth and drive deep into the earth's core. The worrying trend of not being able to score nor stop the opposition from doing the same to us is the making of a team on the brink of an almighty disaster. Like Leeds, Charlton, Southampton and Sheffield Wednesday, it looks like we are destined to follow suit.
Going down to Division 1 would have such a major devastating impact on our finances it is hard to see how Steve Gibson would find a way of filtering any more cash from his other business concerns. A huge fire sale of our better (*cough*) players would leave us with fringe and academy players and a manager who will have to find other ways of motivating a group of guys that surely have no battle or will left in their bones. All we can do is hope and pray that our strikers can start finding the net.
That and some loan signings in January, including a couple of creative midfielders to help us up front. Looks like Christmas is cancelled.
