Garry Monk’s latest message on social media website Twitter has been met with a barrage of criticism from both Middlesbrough and Leeds United fans.
No excuses from the last couple of games. Our fans deserve much better. We must give every ounce we have this week to produce a reaction.— Garry Monk (@GarryMonk) December 5, 2017
Monk’s popularity at the Riverside Stadium is dwindling, with the Teesiders’ season not going according to plan.
Boro went into the campaign as the favourites for promotion, but they have failed to live up to their billing.
The North East side are currently sat in ninth place in the Championship table, which is behind the Leeds side Monk left to join the Riverside Stadium.
Leeds fans are still irked by Monk’s decision to leave them in favour of Boro, and they were taking great joy in witnessing the 38-year-old boss struggle.
Sorry why are you still here— Lee McMullen (@leemcm1976) December 5, 2017
You've moved to a smaller club in a terrible town with no fans. What did you expect?— Thomas Petch (@ThomasPetch) December 5, 2017
Do something about it then or go. Not just "the last couple of games", performances all season haven't been good enough. Even in the games we have won— All About Boro (@AllAboutBoro) December 5, 2017
Seem to hear the same words from you all too often— Mick (@Michaelpotter88) December 5, 2017
same old spin garry .. it's boring now— Colin Wilson (@wilsoncolin1974) December 5, 2017
Missing Pep are you Garry? Clueless fraud.— Tj (@TheTjHiggins) December 5, 2017
Last couple of games? We’ve been brutal all season! We’ve had one / two decent performances, stop being a fairy on the sidelines, seen more passion in our nanna!!— Stuart Mooney (@studdy2k) December 5, 2017
Boro have lost their last two matches, against Derby County and Bristol City, to crank the pressure up on Monk.
Boro have failed to click into gear, despite having a squad which is the envy of most Championship sides.
Monk’s side’s next match comes against Ipswich Town at the weekend, and anything other than a victory will only make the calls for Monk to be sacked grow louder.
