Kike Signs To Spearhead Boro Attack

Boro have confirmed the signing of Spanish striker Enrique García from Real Murcia. A prolific scorer, he is also known as Kike. A top name I reckon. With fans deflected by stories of the signing of Vossen from Belgium the club has instead opted to dip into the Spanish market, well known to manager Aitor Karanka. Kike will hook up with the Boro squad in Marbella early next week once he has passed a medical and completed all the formalities. Kike is a former Spanish Under-20 ....

Danny Gone But Not Forgotten

Boro Head Coach talked fondly of his time working with striker Danny Graham but knows that he might have to look elsewhere for striking options this season. Just as with right back target Juanfran we can’t afford to wait around for these players and instead have to push the net out wider for potential transfer targets. Aitor Karanka told the media this week just how much he valued the contribution of Sunderland loan player Danny Graham in our revival in the second half of the season. The ....

Boro Loan Star Omeruo Makes His Mark On The Word Cup

I don’t think many of us were surprised at Kenneth Omeruo impressive display for Nigeria in the World Cup at the weekend. The Chelsea player quickly became a Boro favourite last season for his towering displays. He always looked capable of showing the same form on a far bigger stage. Of all the young loan players that have pulled on a Boro shirt in recent years he has always looked the most likely to succeed at the very highest level. He was always likely to draw the spotlight even in ....

Hopefully, it should be an easier challenge than last season's curtain raiser at home to Leicester City. Boro then get a big Yorkshire derby immediately with an away visit to Elland Road on August 16th, followed by a tricky ....
