View From The Home End At The Valley

  Charlton fan and author Paul Breen might have once famously celebrated his love for Middlesbrough but there will be no love lost for him tomorrow at The Valley as Boro take on Charlton. We know all about how vital it is for our survival hopes but for The Addicks too they are pinning a lot on getting result in this game. That is why it is a 6 pointer and why we need to hear all about the view from the home end at The Valley... Here is what Paul Breen makes of the big clash... ....

Britt And Fletch Boost For Valley 6 Pointer

    Boro are boosted by the return of both Britt Assombalonga and Ashley Fletcher for the crucial trip to fellow strugglers Charlton at the Valley tomorrow. This means Jonathan Woodgate has more options for his forward line. Can we make it count and take full points? Kick off at The Valley is 3pm. For all those travelling down to The Valley remember there are no trains at Charlton Station tomorrow so you will need to tube it then bus and walk from North Greenwich. Or MSS ....

Boro - Time To Fight Back Together

  A massive game tonight as Boro play Forest at the Riverside. Can we stop this amazing slump and fight back up the table? We will need to tackle promotion chasing Nottingham Forest who boast one of the best away records in this division. They beat us home and away last season, whacked us in actual fact, yet this season Paddy McNair\'s penalty saw us draw level at the City Ground and share the points. A point each tonight will not be sufficient to see us leapfrog Stoke City ....

View From The Trees

  On Monday night Boro face up to Nottingham Forest in what has to be the most important game of the season. After an alarming loss of form Boro have nosedived into the bottom three. We now square up to a Nottingham Forest side playing with the confidence of a side gunning for promotion. A club that beat us home and away this season. Yet remember Paddy McNair pegged them back with an equaliser at the City Ground before Christmas, so don\'t write us off just yet. I asked Forest fan ....

Beat Leeds And Leeds

  Under pressure Boro go head to head with promotion chasing Leeds United tonight at the Riverside. After an alarming run of form Boro desperately need a performance and points. Three games against relegation zone clubs have amassed just one point. Defeats to bottom clubs Luton and then on the road at Barnsley saw Boro hardly raise a shot in anger. We need a big reaction tonight – kick off 7.45pm. Boro have now crashed to just 21st place in the division just one place and 3 ....

Keep Calm And Topple The Tykes

  It doesn\'t take long to get to Barnsley and fortunately the Yorkshire side are always very generous with their away ticket allocations; 4000 tomorrow, perhaps? So, whenever we happen to find ourselves in the same division it can often be just about the most popular away trip of the season. Many Boro fans will make this their big away day of the season and with a very generous bar adjacent to Oakwell it can be a very enjoyable trip, all round. But not always the most sober. ....

Can Boro De-rail Wigan?

  Boro travel to Wigan tonight, it is essential we avoid defeat at all costs to prevent us being drawn in to a relegation fight with our opponents. Paul Cook\'s side have experienced narrow defeat after narrow defeat this season including Boro\'s 1-0 win at the Riverside and the 2-1 victory for Preston at Wigan on Saturday. But they do run teams close game after game and in fact they famously defeated Leeds United at Elland Road at the start of this month, so we need to be very wary. Kick ....

Boro Double Sting From Bees

  It was a historic day at Brentford on Saturday. As well as the final visit to Griffin Park, Brentford\'s late strike made it a first ever double over Boro in a season. That is not the kind of history anyone from Teesside will be celebrating. But in an end to end match, Boro came out fighting in the second period and might easily have taken 1 or even 3 points from a team that looks like the real deal; a play off prospect at the very least. Yet another failure though means we must come ....

Can Boro Take The Sting Out Of The Bees?

  A tough game for Boro as we travel back down to London to take on 5th place Brentford. It will not be the easiest of places to go to for Jonathan Woodgate\'s team to rediscover the winning habit. But we must dig in and end this little win-less run, to put a final full stop to any worries of relegation pressures returning. Always a good, friendly but competitive atmosphere at Brentford. An end of an era game for us against opponents that like to play the game and harbouring serious ....

Boro Rap Up Ravel - Now To Beat Blackburn

  Jonathan Woodgate was delighted at the Boro business over the January transfer window. Ravel Morrison and Cameroon international defender Harold Moukoudi from Saint Etienne Man City were the deadline day loan arrivals as Paddy Reading left permanently for Stevenage as well as a host of young players going out and getting loan experience with other clubs. So, there have been plenty of ins and outs with the biggest money exchanging hands over goalkeepers with of course Darren Randolph ....

Can Boro Give Birmingham The Blues?

  Boro return to the Riverside hoping to get back to winning ways again. It was a disappointing week of results, the two games in London left us looking jaded. We need to be back on song and what better way then avenging that defeat at St Andrews. Kick off tonight is 7.45pm. It is chilly out so bring a hat. Woodgate will not be able to freshen it up with any new faces as Friend and Shotton are both neither fit nor ready. With Ayala out it will fall to Dael Fry to keep former Boro ....

Can Boro Stop Fulham?

  Boro make it three games in six days tonight when trying to take down Fulham at Craven Cottage. No easy task then and especially against the team currently fourth in the division and always a powerhouse in their Thameside home. Yet could it be a good time to play Scott Parker\'s team now facing up to life for a while without their injured top goalscorer Mitrovic? Can we sneak in and do a job while they are readjusting? Boro are at Fulham tonight 7.45pm kick off. I spoke with Boro ....

Can Hot Boro Topple Spurs?

  It is cup fever Tuesday as Boro fans exodus Teesside bound for the new Spurs ground hoping our in-form team can overcome Mourinho\'s Spurs in the 3rd Round replay. Kick off 8.05pm. It will also be screened live on BBC One for all those not able to take the trip down the M1. So, no one will be missing out. Cannot wait. Boro played some superb football on Saturday against Derby County. Although, thanks to the last minute equaliser, we didn\'t keep our winning run going we will be ....

Can Boro End Jose Cup Dream

  Rampant Boro have a golden opportunity for cup success in this afternoon\'s 3rd Round Cup tie against Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur. Jose Mourinho will be targeting the FA Cup for his usual first season success and to show he can achieve what his predecessor, Pochettino, could never attain, silverware. Kick off at the Riverside 2-1pm. With a run of wins behind us, Boro go into this game without any pressure. When the draw was first made memories of the thrashing at ....

Ashley Fletcher Says Fans Are Our Twelfth Man

Ashley Fletcher reckons Boro can win this 6 pointer and that he can provide some of the much needed fire power. If Boro could defeat Michael O’Neill’s Stoke side then it would knock ....

Boro V Swansea A Point In The Right Direction?

  Boro fans make the long, long trip to Swansea for Saturday\'s head at head at the Liberty Stadium. No easy step to make, especially in December. Can Boro build on the last two games and return with a point in the right direction? Boro play at Swansea City – Saturday 14th December - kick off 3pm. Boro have bounced back well from the mauling at Leeds. A home win against hapless Charlton was then followed as we battled back for a point at Nottingham Forest. If we could get the ....

Can Boro Out Trick The Tricky Trees?

  Boro travel to play Nottingham Forest at the City Ground tonight hoping to build on that morale-boosting victory over Charlton at the weekend. A couple of major players could be back in the mix, Marvin Johnson and Paddy McNair are both back from suspension but there are continued doubts over Lewis Wing and fingers crossed over scan results on in form no.9 Britt Assombalonga. Kick off is at 7.45pm. Britt Assombalonga\'s might not get the chance to return to his former City Ground ....

Jonny Howson Calls For Boro Reaction

  Can Boro react positively to the mauling at Leeds and claim the scalp of Charlton at the Riverside tomorrow, kick off 3pm. It is 20th versus 17th and an opportunity to bite into a six point gap between the two sides. Charlton stormed away at the start of the season but have faltered badly of late can we respond after hell at Elland Road and leap forward again? Think back to the time before shipping four to Leeds and Boro ought to have beaten Hull but then secured the points in a ....

Can Boro Stop Leeds?

  Boro travel to the home of Leeds United hoping to stop the second place club in their tracks. It will be a hard ask for a much depleted Boro side against the team building a real head of steam in an automatic promotion place. Kick off is Saturday 3pm for a (welcome) change. For many years this was THE derby, certainly for all born south of the Tees and with memories long enough to recall Don Revie\'s side and the admiral bags and sock tags that often featured on the dark side of ....

What A Difference A Win Can Make

  Boro need to win to leapfrog over Wigan and Luton and spring out of the bottom three. Obviously a defeat would be very bad news for our opponents, bottom club Barnsley. For which reason it is almost the first six pointer of the season. And a win could be priceless for our season as a whole. Boro have to record only a third victory of the season tonight to fight our way ahead of the relegation pack. Last night Stoke City\'s new manager bounce was deflated by defeat away at mid ....

Woodgate Message Of Thanks To The Fans

  “We need the fans more than ever,” was manager Jonathan Woodgate\'s message to the travelling support going down to west London. He is so thankful for the coninued support for himself, his players and most importantly of all he says, our club, Boro. Boro travel to QPR looking for an end to a win-less run that has seen us plummet into the drop zone. When it rains it pours and it certainly has done this week, the Boro side will not just be down on confidence but also ....

Can Boro Break Duck At Derby?

Boro travel to Derby County on Saturday under real pressure, we simply need to get a result. Boro’s winless run and goalscoring blanks have now landed us third from bottom of the league. Only goals and points now will arrest this slide. With successive away games, the heat is really on for Jonathan Woodgate to get out of the fire. Go back a couple of matches and it was all about the performance, tightening our defences, tightening our belts and showing we were better far better than the ....

Boro Must Bounce Back V Preston

  It is a massive night tonight for Jonathan Woodgate\'s Boro. We must show our mettle by responding in a positive manner from the first half thrashing to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday. But if we had to pick opponents for the comeback game it might not have been Preston, flying high in 5th place and showing their own Houdini credentials in fighting to a draw after being in deep trouble at Deepdale, 2-0 down to Bristol City. Kick off tonight is 7.45pm. It is a big, big game tonight ....
