The latest from the Boro blog. Opinion, gossip, rumours and debate from MFC...

Last night we were greeted with the shock news that Gary Monk had been relieved of his duties at the Riverside, after a decent win away at Sheffield Wednesday (Carvahal also walking today from his post) I thought it might earn Monk a reprieve of sorts but it wasn't to be.

Where did it go wrong for Monk at Boro?

Last night we were greeted with the shock news that Gary Monk had been relieved of his duties at the Riverside, after a decent win away at Sheffield Wednesday (Carvahal also walking today from his post) I thought it might earn Monk a reprieve of sorts but it wasn't to be.

Garry Monk sacking: frustrating, disappointing, inevitable

£50m spent, 10 new arrivals in the summer, a whole new coaching team, a disjointed and unbalanced side with no identity or real potential. That is how to best summarise Garry Monk’s brief but disappointing reign with Middlesbrough Football Club.

Adama Traore - The jet-heeled maverick's time has run out...

There have been many games over the last year and a half when I've cried out for the rapid Adama to come on and change a lacklustre Boro performance either in the Premier League or this season in the Championship, but I'm beginning to question whether his potential is now becoming something of a burden.

2Hot! 2Not! The Kids Are Alright!

It has been a resolute and assuring week for Boro fans this last week or so: after a convincing result against Bolton and a ground out draw at Villa Park last week, it would always be intriguing to see how the side progressed from there.

2Hot! 2Not! You (haven’t) got a Friend in me

Honestly thought that international break would never end! After the disappointing 0-0 draw with Preston at The Riverside, it was important that Boro responded positively against Bolton and Aston Villa.

Toil and grit with backs to the wall – that was vintage Championship Boro

Well, that was hard work, wasn’t it? After Adama Traoré started the match by lighting up the word ‘NARRATIVE’ in gasoline across the Villa Park pitch, there seemed to be an inevitability about the mounting Villa pressure throughout the game. They had to break through eventually – didn’t they?
