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.

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 ....

Alan Johnson Boro Fine Artist

Fine artist and Boro fan Alan Johnson has combined two of his loves to give us affordable Boro art. You can buy Alan’s depiction of our arrival at the Premier stage on ebay for a sum that will not break the bank. What a fabulous way to remember Boro first footing back in the top flight with a painting of the fans gathering before the Ayresome gates for the big Premier Riverside kick off v Stoke City in August 2016. Alan gave me a glimpse of his evolving artwork as he bought a fanzine ....

Can Boro Strike While The Irons Are Cold?

London-based author and blogger Paul Breen gives his view on Boro’s chances of striking gold in their clash with West Ham at the Olympic Stadium. Next weekend Middlesbrough are making their first London league visit of the season with a trip to West Ham. Last time they met, in the spring before the London Olympics, the game was drawn in the historic surrounds of the old Upton Park. This time around, that grand old ground is closed up and probably on its way to a fate that has echoes of ....

Remembering The Boro Class Of 1926

In season 1926/27 Boro smashed the record books wide open, not only winning promotion back to the top flight but blowing the opposition away in a goal storm of 122 league goals. In his first full season since signing from Durham City, centre forward George Camsell hammered in an incredible 59 league goals. You can now relive this fantastic season in a brand new mini exhibition at the Bob End of Dorman Museum with all the stats, action photos, mementoes and memories from that momentous ....

Crime has a new enemy… and it never saw him coming. “When Robert Jones awoke with yet another monster hangover in his house in Teesside, he could never have imagined that within just a few hours his life would change forever.” This is The Boro Phallacy, the debut novel by Boro fan and indeed scout, Michael Richardson. It is launched this Friday through locally based publishers, Sixth Element. I had to ask Michael a few questions to let us get to know more about the author ....

Let Battle Recommence

  Boro return to the Riverside on Saturday to recommence top flight hostilities against Crystal Palace. Can we remain unbeaten and kick on from our solid start? Can we record our first home win and get the Riverside rocking to a Premier beat? It seems like an age since the last home game for Boro. Of course that was the age before we cut our squad to 25 and concluded the transfer window with our hand for the remainder of 2016. We can no longer look to a wing and a player from Albert ....

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town…

J49. A1(M) Thirsk. Teesside. A168 (A19). For the weary away fan, there are few sights more welcoming than this beaming blue beacon on the A1 (M).  For decades, travelling home from work or yet another fruitless away trip, nothing would make me smile wider than the Tees than knowing I was just 37 miles from home. However, following our upcoming 1st first visit to the newly renamed ‘London Stadium’ (that’s the Olympic Stadium to you and I), I fear not even my old friend ....
