Boro’s Barnsley Dreaming

Hopefully it will be better weather than the storm that attacked the Riverside v Portsmouth at the start of last season. It was like something out of the Old Testament as the rain and hailstone lashed down to the accompaniment of thunder and fork lightning. If it should rain at Barnsley lets hope it rains on their parade and that we swim and they sink. Boro’s home campaign starts seem to bring draws so hopefully we can go two points better away at Barnsley. Where, according to rumours ....

Colin Henderson R.i.p.

I was woken up this morning to the sad news that former Middlesbrough chairman Colin Henderson has died from a heart attack. Born locally in 1935, Colin Henderson was the man at the helm that successfully steered the club back from the brink in 1986. While Bruce Rioch and his young team captured the hearts and minds of Teesside on the pitch by rising up two leagues, Colin Henderson helped rescue the whole club from the liquidators. His part in the rescue of the club cannot be understated. A ....

Big Mick Could Go West

Media reports indicate that Boro defender Stephen McManus could be set to move south west to Bristol City on a permanent deal for around £150 000. That would represent a fair drop from the £1.5m the former Celtic captain was signed for by Gordon Strachan but it would decrease the burden of our wage bill still further, something that has been a priority for Tony Mowbray from day one. Bristol City were able to pay Stephen McManus wages in full last season when he went out on loan to ....
