Genuinely surprised by this one. Woodgate supposedly only got the job at Middlesbrough on the basis that he was relatively cheap and the chairman liked him. I read somewhere that as a player his nickname was 'village' due to his general lack of smarts. Given that they are in the mix for the play-offs at least it's a massive shout that they aren't at least looking to get an impact appointment in for the last three months of the season. They'll look very smart if it comes off for them, I guess...Jonathan Woodgate gets the Bournemouth job until the end of the season.
He's steadied the ship at Bournemouth (prior to Saturday), but the below suggests 'tactical genius' is unlikely.I'm also surprised about the Woodgate situation. Every time i hear him i try not to fall asleep. He comes across as such a morose, uninspiring personality. He may be a tactical genius but motivation wise, he must struggle getting players up for it, surely?
