Boro Sign Chalobah On Loan

  Boro have today completed the signing of Chelsea’s highly-rated defender Nathaniel Chalobah on loan for the remainder of the season.

Boro Pay Tribute To Former Chairman

  Boro have paid tribute to former club chairman Alf Duffield, who passed away recently. Mr Duffield joined the board in the mid-Eighties during the darkest period in the club’s history as the team tumbled towards the third tier for only the second time. Willie Maddren was manager when he took over and it was under his chairmanship that Boro brought in Bruce Rioch, who led the club to two memorable promotions. Mr Duffield became Boro’s fourth chairman in just three years ....

Happy Birthday And Thank You From Fly Me To The Moon

Fly Me To The Moon has just celebrated a silver anniversary. No one saw that coming when it was first typed, cut’n’paste and photo copied in November 1988. The first ever edition didn’t quite inspire the team who lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday at dear old Ayresome Park. The 25th birthday went rather better with a victory over Bolton Wanderers and a special commemorative edition with staples, colour cover and all the trimmings. The first fanzine came out of high powered ....

No Steele In Boro For Three Games

It is official now that Jason Steele will be banned for three games. Jason Steele’s professional foul on Leeds forward Dexter Blackstock will now mean that we will be without our first choice goalkeeper for the games with Bolton, Derby and Birmingham City. Time for Jayson Leutwiler to step up to the plate. Initially after Saturday’s game there were hopes that the ban could be less severe if the sending off had actually been for denying a clear goal scoring opportunity. Not to be. ....
