Albert Stays Poor Rhys Waits On Scan

Fingers crossed Rhys Williams achilles injury is not quite so severe as the rupture he suffered a year ago. After all those months of carefully planned rehab, a distressed Rhys Williams beating the Oakwell turf in frustration on Saturday was a harrowing sight to see. The pain etched on team mate Daniel Ayala’s face as he reeled away said it all. Rhys certainly does not deserve another monumental struggle to recover full fitness. Rhys limping out of the dressing room on crutches at ....

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. I don\'t think anyone saw this coming at all. The worry has to be that this will rock a very tight ship and disrupt our ....

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. Thanks for all the great times, John. In complete contrast to the outspoken Jack Charlton, the former Wrexham boss was a softly spoken manager who let his team do the talking on the pitch.
