Higgy Shock Departure

  I think it would be fair to say that Boro fans have been pretty much stunned by the news this morning that assistant head coach, Craig Hignett has left the club. In a short statement on mfc official site it says simply that “Middlesbrough can confirm that assistant head coach Craig Hignett has parted company with the club.” What a bolt from the blue.

John Neal Rip

It is very sad news that former Middlesbrough manager John Neal has passed away aged 82 years. Neal will be remembered fondly by all those fans of a certain age for rebuilding Boro into a team that sparred at the very top of the old Division One. A humble man but a talented manager.
