Boro Draw Rochdale At Home

  Boro\'s reward for defeating Notts County is another home draw against lower league opponents, as Rochdale will provide opposition in the 2nd round at the Riverside. Boro played Dale at Spotland in the summer. A young side, very similar to that which defeated County on Tuesday night went down to defeat in the last kick of the game in the pre season friendly. Just how many young veterans of that encounter will feature in the 2nd round tie to be played in the week commencing Monday 27 ....

Get Behind The Team

A clearly disappointed Tony Pulis issued an appeal to all Boro fans this morning to get behind all the players as we battle against the odds to stay at the top of the Championship pack. Pulis stark assessment was that we don\'t have the depth or quality to gain promotion. He is as disappointed as the fans with the failure to land our targets but it is really imperative now we pull together and do not get on any of the players backs as we try to take another 3 points at the Riverside tomorrow. ....

Tony Pulis Meets The Fans

A packed Legends Lounge was informed and entertained and probably enthused about the new season after a frank and open question and answer from Boro boss Tony Pulis. He ducked no questions and apart from hiding the names of any player targets did not avoid any issues. Like him or not, and some fans said they were in the latter camp, no one left the room with any other impression that Pulis is hell bent on succeeding here and returning the club to the top division and Europe once more. Music to ....

Philip Meadows - Boro Artist

  There is a wonderful art exhibition currently showing at Heritage Gallery, Cargo Fleet. Any Boro fan will love the Ayresome Park paintings of Philip Meadows. They drip with red and white atmosphere. You can almost taste the pies, smell the bovril and savour the excitement of the floodlit night matches. But also look at his Teesside gadgies bent into the wind riding home from their late shift. Or sense the feeling of release and freedom of scenes from the North York Moors. This is an ....

Can Boro Raid The Rams?

  Can Boro make a giant stride towards a play off finish by getting a positive result away at Derby County tomorrow? Is this a case of classic good timing of Boro meeting Derby just as their major crisis of confidence is kicking in? If we could get off to a good start then the bad memories of past season failures might well turn the atmosphere toxic and then Boro could cash in. Boro play the team one point behind but having one match in hand. But Derby County lost their last ....

The Battle For The Play-offs: Will Boro Make It?

  After a strange and inconsistent season, it feels surreal that three more wins and two draws should be enough to propel Middlesbrough into a top-six place in this season’s Championship. Joshua Healy wrote this for the fanzine before Saturday\'s win v Nottingham Forest. Can we keep on track with his plan after tonight\'s game at Sheff Utd? So remember this assessment was written before Saturday\'s game. With six games remaining Boro have accrued 63 points. Over the ....

Wilton Walter’s Boro Armchair

I know what’s gone wrong with our home form. Pulis is wearing that silly baseball cap again! Seasoned Boro fan Walter from Wilton gives the benefit of his long years of Boro watching in the fanzine every month. They certainly didn\'t wear baseball caps or white trainers back in his days, what\'s wrong with a flat cap and boiled boots? Anyway this fanzine he is sitting it out (gettit?) and instead getting all new fangled and contributing to the website. It will never catch on ....
