Kevin is down about it, his manager is dismayed but at long last we might get a fully fit player able to ride challenges and twisted ....

Seasons Fixtures

Another season, another home game in the Boro's curtain raiser for the 2011/12 season. I remember a time when we would travel to Reading or Southampton to open our league account. But, since 2007 the Reds have been at home four times consecutively with a less than impressive statistic of one win in four with two defeats. Surprisingly the defeats where to Ipswich Town and Blackburn Rovers and the victory was over Spurs. If we look into our opening day exploits further the Boro have only won one ....
