Final Fly Me To The Moon

Of the season.. or maybe for good. We’ll see… Issue 576 v Southampton has arrived back from the printers ready to go on sale tomorrow before the last Premier game at the Riverside. Again let’s hope that is a temporary thing and that after one season break we are back watching top flight football again soon. Our last “by the fans, for the fans” production features the final instalment of our season long Holmes and the Riverside Thriller. You finally get to find ....

End Of Premier Days

Saturday will be a day of hiding behind the furniture and hoping against hope for a ridiculous series of results to keep Boro in the game on Monday. The fact we have to get a result at title chasing Chelsea pretty much completes the mission impossible. Mind you after winning play off promotion at the old Stamford Bridge 30 years ago could we possibly take a giant step forward and knock them back on Monday night? The first result that would be nice to see would be Man City making Fat Sam and ....

MFC Foundation was set up by Chairman Steve Gibson as the independent charitable arm of Middlesbrough FC.

A Win Changes Everything

  Boro boss Steve Agnew is hoping that win comes tomorrow night at Hull City. He knows it is absolutely essential. We drew the must win game at Swansea on Sunday but now absolutely have to win at the KC Stadium if we are to stand even a glimmer of a chance of success in this desperate scramble for Premier safety. Three points at Hull could light the blue touch paper for the team and of course massively disrupt the safety plans of the Tigers who are counting on their home record to see ....

View From The Swans

On Sunday we travel to Swansea City in what most Boro fans would feel is the game of the season so far. It could be absolutely all or nothing for us as far as our Premier survival hopes. But I wondered what was the view from the other side. Swansea look like our relegation rivals right now. So just how do their fans view this massive head to head? I swapped questions and answers with Steven Carroll editor of independent Swansea City fanzine Swansea Oh Swansea Q: Back in mid December we ....

Ayala Back For Agnew

Daniel Ayala is back and available for selection for Boro’s massive relegation head to head at Swansea. The big centre half has had an injury blighted season but his heading prowess could be invaluable against the Swans in form centre forward Llorente. There was more good news in that Calum Chambers and George Friend are also back running in training and although they look unlikely to be risked for the three big games next week they should be available after that and so can make a big ....

Woody Is Back

  Jonathan Woodback is back at the Boro as new First Team Coach. Quite a turn around for the player that officially retired at the end from playing at the end of our Championship promotion campaign. It is quite a turn around all round as Woody joins the highly experienced Joe Jordan and the upwardly mobile former youth coach, Paul Jenkins on caretaker boss Steve Agnew\'s coaching staff. Karanka\'s Spanish armada has almost all departed these shores now with only Leo Percovich ....

In Support Of Aitor And Steve Gibson

There is life in the old Boro dog yet, and once we get George Friend rampaging down the left wing again and Calum Chambers back in defence,  things could change round.  Steve Agnew gave a great impression on  MOTD2 on Sunday, coming over as a confident motivator who could see a light at the end of what has appeared since Xmas to be a long dark tunnel.  I just wish we had a bit more pace in midfield, someone who could carry at speed as well as pass - Adama Traore is just part ....

Leicester Revival Spells More Gloom For Boro

  Leicester\'s 3-1 victory over Liverpool last night worsened the gloom for Boro fans still coming to terms with our defeat at Palace on Saturday. As if losing a “6-pointer” was not bad enough, to see a Jamie Vardy led revival of Leicester was rubbing salt in the wounds. Now Boro\'s fabled goal difference is all that separates us from the drop zone but that will count for absolutely nothing if we don\'t start scoring some goals and winning games. The heat is really on and ....

Boro Made It Sticky For Toffees

Boro showed plenty of Premier survival instincts at the Riverside v Everton. We were strong at the back in thwarting Lukaku and co but might easily have clinched all the points had the Everton keeper, Robles, not clawed away Rudy Gestede’s late goal bound header. Plenty of fight from Boro sticking it to the Toffees. This my blog written straight after Saturday\'s big game at the Riverside. itv.com Boro Fan Blog....

Can Boro Bounce Back?

The  Boro team will jet in from their brief break in Spain and hopefully bringing and winging with them new unity and resolve. Can this be the start of the united Boro fight back for Premier survival? That is a topic high up on the agenda for many of the contributors for Issue 573 Fly Me To The Moon Boro v Everton. Inside this issue Middlesbrough Heritage Officer and Boro nut, Tosh Warwick tells us why there is now a blue plaque on the gates outside the Riverside and a little bit about ....

Boro Looking For Spanish Solution

Aitor Karanka is taking the team off to Spain tomorrow in an effort to rebuild our Premier survival chances. Boro’s flight to the sun will certainly break the routine that saw us suffer our trademark post festive slump. It will be a chance to bed in new members to the squad and hopefully work on some new methods to break our goal famine. Can we come together and start a fight back? January was a truly awful month for Boro. If you take out the cup victories we failed woefully in our three ....

St. Patrick To Offer Something Different For Boro Going Forwards

  Patrick Bamford is back at the Boro and this time it is permanent. The former Chelsea loan hero was signed for a reported £6 million yesterday. Oliver Dixon explains why he believes this will be a great deal for Boro as well as Bamford. Patrick Bamford’s goals in the 2014/15 season propelled us to the dizzy heights of the Play-offs, ending the season in 4th position, our highest placed finish since relegation. He was Championship Player of the year that season and ....

Transfer Window Cleaning

  Arsene Wenger spoke out this week of his dislike of the January Transfer Window and there is no doubt that while it can be a lifeline it is also a massive distraction and can be so disruptive. At Boro we had the positives of an early signing of Rudy Gestede to bolster the forward line. This was quickly followed by the club closing in on former loan hero Patrick Bamford. But all too soon we are having to cope with the negative attentions as first Leicester and now Chelsea are linked ....

Boro Hanging On Above Drop Zone

  A dour 0-0 draw was hardly the most dazzling way to ring in the New Year at the Riverside on Monday but 2017 results confirm a buffer zone for Boro above the relegation trap door. Now with Hull have sacked manager Mike Phelan and Fat Sam having so far failed to bring any magic to Selhurst it could be all panic stations below. Boro might well have ample opportunity to blast away in January. Sunderland\'s draw against Liverpool and a first win for new boss Paul Clement at Swansea have ....

Remembering Ayresome – Stadium Portraits

There is a guy in Bradford that is bringing old football grounds back to life. You can dive back into the 20th century with the stadium portraits of Paul Town. I first met up with Paul Town the artist behind the brush of stadium portraits while I was on an archaeological dig at his home town club, Bradford Park Avenue. That was in the summer of 2015. Here was me trying to rediscover the lost stand of a now long abandoned ground with my trowel while Paul was doing exactly the same thing on ....

A Good Time To Play Liverpool?

It was good to read Rob Nichols’ report on the Southampton game, and my heart goes out to the proper fans who go everywhere to support us . I’ve personally seen us at 20 away grounds in different leagues, so I guess I’m somewhere in the middle.  At Southampton,  Boro’s simple (but probably  complex) inability to score goals was once again our bugbear , but when star man Ramirez is out, we really seem to be  looking round in vain.  So we move on ....

Twenty’s Plenty For Boro Fans Visiting St Mary’s

This weekend Boro fans visiting Southampton’s St Mary’s will only pay £20 for tickets, thanks to the Saint’s sponsor Virgin Media. That’s a great thing – but how did it happen? How is the average away ticket price in the Premier League now lower than the EFL? For years the Football Supporters Federation have campaigned with affiliated fan groups across the country on the “Twenty’s Plenty for Away Fans” campaign. Fmttm has supported this ....

Great Greek Food Is Dimi’s Goal

Boro keeper Dimi Konstantopoulos has opened a Greek restaurant in Middlesbrough. GREAT, serves modern Greek food in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Sited on the Clifton Street corner of Linthorpe Road it is right, bang in the heart of the restaurant and night life sector of Middlesbrough’s main drag. Nestled beneath student halls and just over the road from the big Weatherspoons pub, Swatters Carr, Dimi Konstantopoulos could not have picked on a better location for his new ....

Football Supporters Meeting And London Stadium Problems

Last week I travelled down to London to address a meeting of Premier League Club Fan representatives about the horrendous experiences of Boro fans at West Ham’s London Stadium. The Football Supporters Federation were holding a meeting with several other important points on the agenda but when I asked if I could add London Stadium agenda there was a widespread support for a situation that is clearly on the mind of travelling fans throughout the Premier League and also West Ham home fans ....
