'Warnock has a real job on his hands': What Middlesbrough fans are saying after Wycombe defeat and 10th-place finish

Middlesbrough’s season came to a disappointing end as they were beaten 3-0 by Wycombe at the Riverside – and supporters were quick to react on social media.

The result meant Boro finished 10th in the Championship table, an improvement on the previous campaign when they ended up in 17th.

Yet there was clearly a sense of what could have been as Boro’s form dropped off significantly in the second half of the season, leaving them 13 points off the play-off places.

Here’s how some Boro fans reacted to the result.

Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock.

@Smithy_MFC84: A dire end to what has ultimately been a bang average season. We’d have taken this position after last season, but what I can’t reconcile with is the evident lack of effort and application this last couple of months on the whole. Warnock’s got a real job on his hands

@tom_mcgarry17: It is finally over

@ADF86: Bad result but let's not lose our heads here, we've improved a lot from last season and hopefully we can build to next season

@danpatton__: Think some people are forgetting how good of a season we’ve had

@SteveYambo: Disappointing end to a disappointing season. Thank God that it's over. Some major changes are needed, and, like every Boro fan, have absolutely no confidence in our recruitment team to get decent players in.

@JoshMcCann142: Not one shot on target against bottom of the league, saying Warnock has his work cut out in the summer is an understatement

@SuperSquand: Rubbish all over the pitch today. But today I’m more gutted to see Rotherham go down and not Derby.

@noblec83: Absolutely embarrassing, last game of season or not

@riverside221: 8 points from a possible 27 is a poor return at the business end of the season. Let’s hope @Boro and Warnock have a great Summer and are ready for the start of next season. Top 6 has to be the target (at least).

@craigylilo: The way this season has fizzled out has been ridiculous. A massive clear out needed after today!

@smells66: Poor quality game, I foolishly expected more from Boro. We look like a team of individuals and not a team willing to support, drive each other on. Warnock needs to clear serial underperformers out of our club.
