We are well into the era of Aitor Karanka now. It is difficult to know what to make of it all. First he broke the habit of a Boro lifetime and the team went on a winning run post Christmas instead of a slump. Weird.

Then after being the third highest scorers in the division all of a sudden the tap ran dry. Completely dry. And we broke all known Boro records for not scoring in games. In other words it has been a bit of a mixed bag start to the year so far.

This is the place to come to get any of the back issue you may have missed. Those for the first half of the season can be found in the next article in this Fanzine Shop. But here we will concentrate on everything that has happened since New Year 2014. All purchases are via paypal.

So, hold onto your Boro scarf it looks like being a very up and down ride... as always.

Issue 544Issue 544 v Derby County 5/4/2014

Preparing for the return of the Mac. Steve McClaren’s return to the Riverside was debated and dissected. Another excuse to look back on the golden years that so many fans seemed to turn their backs on at the time. I would welcome back mid table Premier mediocrity now in a flash. We also remembered Bryan Orritt RIP – he played in every position and was our first ever sub now in the Holgate in the sky.


Issue 545Issue 545 v Millwall 19/4/2014

Issue 546Issue 546 v Barnsley 26/4.2014

The end is nigh and no one could beat George Friend for best haircut and best looking player but even genial George could not prevent Albert Adomah from scooping our player of the year award. Ben Gibson might have raised the barrier for red cards and penalties conceded but he was also best young player, no contest.
