Boro V Everton 1988 - Remembered

Bruce Rioch\'s battling Boro taking on the cream of the top flight in Champions, Everton. Mick Richardson shares with us what it was like for a young boy taking in his first ....

Boro V Hull City Fanzine

  We are back but what on earth has happened since the last Fly Me To The Moon, Boro v Brentford? No wonder the Boro hierarchy are studying the table with alarm on the cover. We were all but coasting to the play offs when we last published, we have fallen off a cliff and all but submerged. Be thankful for small mercies and Bolton Wanderers. Inside this month\'s issue, you can guess the temperature emanating from these Boro fans. It isn\'t all varying shades of heat because within ....

Twelfth Man Tonight At Arc

  No, not that Twelfth Man but this... a show starting at 7pm tonight at ARC, Stockton and it is Pay What You Decide. According to statistics, 25% of all fans who attend men’s football matches are women. Andrea Scrimshaw goes to see Newcastle play nearly every week. There are 52,000 fans that go with her. This should mean a quarter of them are women. As far as Andrea can see, this is definitely not the case. Part sketch comedy, part Andrea sharing her personal matchday ....

Pull Together For The Boro

A stern faced Tony Pulis faced the press this morning and was honest enough to admit his disappointment at another failed transfer window. Though Boro brought in Van La Parra and John Obi Mikel, we did not get width, pace or forward power that we have craved for two seasons. The pressure is on now but Pulis is appealing to the fans to understand and back the team and the club as we try to fight our way out of a financial corner as well as the division. Tony Pulis had only good words to say ....

Boro Transfer Window Deadline Jitters

  With the clock now ticking down to deadline on this crucial transfer window Boro fans are sweating on Boro pulling in eleventh hour signings that might transform our promotion challenge. We missed out on bringing in the pace and width that manager Tony Pulis insisted we needed in the last window. It is surely now or never if we are to plug these critical gaps and keep up our promotion challenge. Having already signed up the experience of John Obi Mikel, converted a loan to a ....

Fans Fare Petition

Every week away fans are stung when fixtures are rescheduled, forcing them to miss out on the cheapest train tickets. Last week, Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP (Shadow Minister (Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) called upon the Government to get behind a Fans\' Fare scheme that would give supporters the flexibility and ticket prices they deserve. The Premier League, the English Football League and the Rail Delivery Group are all behind it, and the Transport Minister has agreed to meet to ....

Happy Birthday Tony Mowbray

Today is the 55th birthday of Boro’s former defensive mainstay, captain fantastic and management rescuer in chief, Tony Mowbray. Happy Birthday Mogga from Fly Me To The Moon and I am sure that goes for Boro fans everywhere. Tony Mowbray made his debut way back in 1982, in the dark days between top flight relegation and liquidation. His first bow was in the pressure cooker atmosphere of a Tyne Tees derby. He never shirked a challenge. His defensive qualities as well as his determination ....

Football Supporters Federation Efl Fans Group Meeting

These are the official minutes of the Football Supporters Federation Fan Group meeting held in London at the end of October. It was superbly well attended and great to be able to swap information and ideas between fans of so many clubs. Between rushing for trains. I was able to contribute several points to the agenda but with there being so many fans present it is hard to make too much noise in the meeting. I did ask on AOB that we look to have a £30 maximum away ticket as ....

Can Boro Break Into The Winning Habit V Wigan?

Boro play Wigan this Saturday and 3 points are very much the order of the day. We last savoured a home league win at the Riverside back on September 19th, we need to put that record right and get back into the victory groove once again down by the Tees. As the Championship pack closes in those heading the promotion chase we could definitely do with converting some of these single pointers to victories. Especially at home. It is not just the shot shy attack that will come under the microscope ....

Mind The Gap

Two weeks until another game means the shockwaves will continue to reverberate following the deeply damaging 2-0 home defeat to Nottingham Forest. Aitor Karanka returned and did a real job on us. Such was the gravity of the defeat that it has planted big seeds of doubt in Boro fans minds that will fester until we get back to action at Hillsborough. But that is not until a week on Friday. Plenty of time for those seeds to germinate and really take root. There was the growing feeling that ....

Back To Boro

Back to Boro back to Championship reality this weekend when Boro go to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City. Can Boro keep the momentum of the good start rolling on after the international break? Boro play at Norwich 3pm Saturday. Boro finished on a high note before international interruption with a competitive and compelling 0-0 draw at Elland Road. Although we did not leapfrog the league leaders we matched them and indeed had the better of the chances. With new faces brought in on deadline ....

Boro - Life After Leeds

  Boro can now relax and look to go onwards and upwards now after the international break. We proved we were (more than) a match for Leeds going head to head and toe to toe with the league leaders at their home. Now with loan transfer reinforcements in the pack and young players pride and almost ready we look all set to really challenge at the top over the months ahead. Perhaps unlucky not to be awarded at least one penalty Boro gave every bit as good as they got on a frantic ....

Boro Draw Rochdale At Home

  Boro\'s reward for defeating Notts County is another home draw against lower league opponents, as Rochdale will provide opposition in the 2nd round at the Riverside. Boro played Dale at Spotland in the summer. A young side, very similar to that which defeated County on Tuesday night went down to defeat in the last kick of the game in the pre season friendly. Just how many young veterans of that encounter will feature in the 2nd round tie to be played in the week commencing Monday 27 ....

Get Behind The Team

A clearly disappointed Tony Pulis issued an appeal to all Boro fans this morning to get behind all the players as we battle against the odds to stay at the top of the Championship pack. Pulis stark assessment was that we don\'t have the depth or quality to gain promotion. He is as disappointed as the fans with the failure to land our targets but it is really imperative now we pull together and do not get on any of the players backs as we try to take another 3 points at the Riverside tomorrow. ....

Tony Pulis Meets The Fans

A packed Legends Lounge was informed and entertained and probably enthused about the new season after a frank and open question and answer from Boro boss Tony Pulis. He ducked no questions and apart from hiding the names of any player targets did not avoid any issues. Like him or not, and some fans said they were in the latter camp, no one left the room with any other impression that Pulis is hell bent on succeeding here and returning the club to the top division and Europe once more. Music to ....

Philip Meadows - Boro Artist

  There is a wonderful art exhibition currently showing at Heritage Gallery, Cargo Fleet. Any Boro fan will love the Ayresome Park paintings of Philip Meadows. They drip with red and white atmosphere. You can almost taste the pies, smell the bovril and savour the excitement of the floodlit night matches. But also look at his Teesside gadgies bent into the wind riding home from their late shift. Or sense the feeling of release and freedom of scenes from the North York Moors. This is an ....
