Southgate's Mentality A Bit Worrying!

Last updated : 14 August 2009 By Boro Mad

The trouble with the Championship is that so many clubs are 'much of the same'.

Yes, any three of 20 could get promoted, because there isn't much in the way of Premiership quality in that league.

As for it being "the toughest league in the world", as one London-based reporter said last week ... I think that guy needs to get off the drugs!

Yet Southgate insists he wants to drop the level of quality, to compete in the league.

That is frightening!

Southgate: "If we lost Tuncay and Alves, I wouldn't necessarily replace them with the same sort of forward.

"We'd need to bring in the sort of player who is suitable for the division we are in."

Sorry Gareth, you lost me there. It's Premiership quality we NEED!
