Boro Can Bring Back That Winning Feeling Today

  Boro look to get a first home win of the season this afternoon v Yeovil Town kick off 3pm. Come on... We've had plenty of draws, single points that should have been three. Games in which we've had the majority of the possession, almost all the shots on target and still conceded a late goal. As a consequence we have crashed to 19th place in the table piling the pressure on management and players. The fans are hurting and angry. Today could be the day the damn bursts and Yeovil take a ....

Boro Need To Bite The Terriers

Boro need to get a first home win of the season tonight but must overcome a tenacious Huddersfield Town. Kick off 7.45pm at the Riverside. Saturday’s away loss at League leaders QPR was not the biggest shock in town but has done nothing to alleviate the pressure on a team that has still only won once this season and not yet at home. As we all know this has been a truly horrible year for Boro and we need to start turning it round very quickly indeed. Two home games in a week provides ....

Big Test At Qpr My Lord

Boro face a stern test against big spending Harry Redknapp’s promotion favourites and league leaders, QPR, at Loftus Road. A good solid performance would be a big fillip before two home games next week. But it will not be easy. Saturday kick off 3pm. Boro travel to London to tackle QPR, the team that crashed down from the Premier but with parachutes payments aplenty to hopefully cushion the fall and rebound back at the first attempt. Harry’s lads seem to be specialising in 1-0 ....

Can Boro Put Out The Forest Fires?

Boro face a tough task tonight trying to knock high flying Nottingham Forest out of their winning stride. The Tricky Trees have won every game at the City Ground so far. A stadium that always seems like a fortress when we visit it. Can we possibly do something special and hit back with a result. After Saturday’s big disappointment there is no let up as we face Billy Davies flying circus at Nottingham Forest. Three matches three wins against a Boro side with some decent performances but ....

Can Boro Find The Winning Habit At Ipswich?

Boro fans take the long and winding road out east to Ipswich hoping that it will be a journey with a pot of gold and three points at the end of it. The disgraceful £32.50 ticket price will be slightly easier to digest if our team can find a way to convert draws into victories at Portman Road. In a week where a BBC survey has revealed a welcome downward trend in ticket costs, clearly no one with a conscience is listening to the mood in Ipswich. Boro have now drawn the last three league ....

Boro Third Time Lucky V Wednesday?

Boro take on Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow hoping it will be third home game lucky and we finally make it a win at the Riverside. Kick off is 3pm. Come on down. Following back to back draws at Wigan and home to Blackpool, Boro could do with stepping up and seizing all the points against The Owls. There will be a big contingent of 1800+ driving up the M1/A1 from South Yorkshire, Wednesday are always well supported. Just lets hope it can be an atmosphere to compare to last season’s ....

Can Boro Spoil Wigan Party?

  Boro travel to Wigan today hoping to bring their cup celebrations to a halt by recording an away win. Kick off 3pm. Boro play Wigan this afternoon in the game re-arranged late in the day to allow the town an awayday to Wembley yesterday. Wigan Warriors 16-0 victory over Hull FC meant a second Wembley cup win for a town with a population not a whole lot different to Redcar, Marske and Saltburn. Boro hope to catch the place made famous for its pies and pier with one eye off the Football ....

Can Boro Sink Blackpool?

  Boro will look to the wings to defeat high flying Blackpool at the Riverside this afternoon, kick off 3pm. Can we make it a first home victory and make it back to back wins and finally get this campaign on the road? New signing Albert Adomah will be zipping down one flank and Muzzy Carayol weaving and inside and outside off the other wing as Boro hope to bamboozle Paul Ince's Blackpool and throw them off course. Boro have still not been able to bring in any new forwards but big ....

Can It Be A Happy Valley For Boro?

Middlesbrough make the long haul down to Charlton on Saturday hoping for a silver lining at the end of a miserable starting week for the campaign. A repeat of last season’s 4-1 hammering of The Addicks would more than make amends. New signing Albert Adomah will be in the travelling party and hopefully in the starting eleven. Adomah caused mayhem for Boro on more than one visit to his previous home Ashton Gate. Let’s hope that The Juke can get on the end of some of the ....

Boro Close To Signing On League Cup Day

It will be ten years since Boro lifted the League Cup next year and Boro set off in this year’s competition today v Accrington Stanley hoping to have a new signing. Or two. Although he won’t be able to play tonight flying winger Albert Adomah is reported to be having a medical at the Riverside. His capture would certainly excite the fans and maybe put a few on the gate tonight.  Adomah has always impressed and indeed terrified us on visits to Bristol City in recent seasons. ....

Fresh Start V Leicester

Boro’s season starts on Saturday when we take on Nigel Pearson’s Leicester City, 3pm kick off. It is ridiculously early in August to be playing football but lets hope it is a fresh start for the team and that the sun will be shining down on Teesside at 5pm? Boro will start the season, completely unfancied by all the pundits. After our nose dive last season we are completely off the radar dominated by big spending QPR and the Premier parachute gang. With the rest of the division ....

Boro 's Friend-ly Test V Bordeaux

  Left back George Friend should be fit enough to play some part in Boro's final friendly game against French Cup holders Bordeaux at the Riverside this afternoon, kick off 3pm. Boro will field the strongest side possible and put them to a stern test against Bordeaux. There have been as yet no further additions to the much weakened squad as we head towards the season. Dean Whitehead and Jozsef Varga really impressed when I saw them at Morecambe. At this moment in time it is an ....

Will Boro End On A High At Hillsborough?

Can Boro finally win an away game in 2013? After so much disappointment will we finish the season with a victory and do the double over Sheff Wed? There will be a massive crowd at Hillsborough tomorrow as the Yorkshire club’s Championship future is hanging by a thread. We could be the ultimate party poopers and send Dave Jones side down a division but our main focus must be to repay our 1500 loyal travelling fans by giving them a win away at last. Note - Kick off at Hillsborough is very ....

Boro V Forest Don't Look Down!

Boro take on promotion chasing Nottingham Forest tonight and for the first time this season we are looking down not up. Saturday's defeat to Brighton finished off any lingering hopes of play off glory leaving Boro fans wondering where the next point is coming from. Tonight would be a very good place to get it indeed. Boro v Forest, 19:45pm k.o. Riverside.   Sad to think that it is Nottingham Forest and not us looking for promotion points tonight. We've swapped over in recent weeks as ....

I Am Up For The Challenge Says Mowbray

Tony Mowbray looked back on our latest away defeat and then on the challenges ahead and declared himself Up for it. Can we exploit any doubts harboured by Hull City this weekend? It will be a tall order for us to suddenly turn our away form round at the club pressing for automatic promotion. We went close to stopping the away rot at Molineux last week. Wolves were second from bottom Hull City are second from top. Yet in this crazy league anyone can beat anyone else on their day. Could it be ....

Battle Of The Boros Tonight

  Boro play another team battling for their Championship lives tonight and we must show we are even more hungry for the points when we take on Peterborough United at the Riverside. Kick off 7.45pm. Boro must react in a positive manner tonight to the most recent defeat at Wolves on Saturday. The Midland outfit built on that 3-2 home win by beating near neighbours Birmingham City 3-2 at St Andrews yesterday. We have to show the fans that we still have the bottle for the fight by doing a ....

Can Boro Blast Back At Bristol?

Boro need a win like almost never before when they make the long haul down to the south west for the game with Bristol City this Saturday at Ashton Gate. Kick off 3pm. Boro must add to bottom club Bristol City’s woes by winning tomorrow. Our defeat at Huddersfield in midweek was yet another massive set back to any lingering promotion hopes resurrected by the Cardiff win last weekend. With only ten games remaining there is absolutely no slack now for slip ups and it is imperative we ....

Can Boro Down Town?

    Boro will be in positive mood this evening as they bid to shoot down Huddersfield Town this evening at the John Smiths Stadium, kick off 7.45pm. After Saturday's high pressure victory over league leaders Cardiff Boro will be looking to take a point or three away from The Terriers and put manager Mark Robins in the doghouse. Sorry, I couldn't resist. Huddersfield have had a topsy turvy first season since securing promotion. They crushed Blackpool at Bloomfield Road only a week ....

Can Boro Halt Cardiff?

Boro play top of the table Cardiff City at the Riverside on Saturday hoping to end this week with a big win. 3pm kick off. Can we take some of the perspiration and inspiration from the midweek battle with Chelsea into this vital promotion game to come out on top? Boro dropped out of the play off mix last weekend after that damaging defeat to Millwall. We bid tomorrow to stop the rot in this tough eight day week at the Riverside by trying to topple milky Mackay’s Premier bound Cardiff. ....

Can Boro Threaten Chelsea's Cup Hold?

  Boro take on FA Cup holders Chelsea tonight hoping to take the FA Cup from their grasp. 7.45pm kick off at the Riverside. The club that beat us in the 1997 FA Cup Final have come on just a bit since then. Currently Champions of Europe and having spent tens of millions of Roman's money they will bring a side full of top internationals to the Riverside. Can we find a way to humble them? The biggest crowd of the season so far will be willing Boro on to rediscover the winning formula and ....

Can Boro Burn Again At Burnley?

It is a massively important game tonight as Boro go on their travels again clashing with the much improved Burnley. We need a big, big improvement ourselves after being blasted off course in a 4-1 horror show at Crystal Palaces last Saturday. We need a performance tonight and some kind of positive result would make all the difference in the world. Just one week on from the relief of a run-busting home win against Leeds, we need to dig deep and find the same level of resolve once more away at ....

Can Boro Shoot Down The Eagles?

Boro travel to Selhurst Park tomorrow hoping to shoot down the Eagles and leap frog above them in the table. We should have been in Fifth Round FA Cup action but instead it is fifth versus six and just 2 points separating Crystal Palace and Boro as we go head to head in the Championship. Boro will be buoyed up by that big win against Leeds United on Tuesday night. Although the suspended Curtis Main will not be available to fire the bullets, can we damage Ian Holloway’s team promotion ....

Boro Must Step Up V Barnsley

Boro have to put a stop to the rot and re-start the promotion campaign v Barnsley at the Riverside, Sat kick off 3pm. Four defeats in a row bottomed out in an appalling display and a real hammering at Ipswich has left us dazed and confused and none too confident about our chances. The only surprise is we are somehow holding onto a play off place. But we need to win against Barnsley to get going again and get some belief back into the shell-shocked supporters. We’ve had a horrendous ....

Boro Looking To Call The Shots
