  8. I said that at the time, Karanka got us promoted but Pulis would have kept us in the PL, not a manager to take us to us to the PL But we have a manager now who will hopefully progress & bring us the Football he craves to bring to the fans

  10. Yes I did like Cummins, I was 18 at the time we sold him & I was gutted I remember coming home from work & seen the gazette headlines on a gazette board, 'Boro sell star' or something to that affect, we knew he was going but to see it in print was reality that he'd gone
  11. Boro flashback - 14th January 1978 Ten out of ten & one for neatness says the commentator Boro went to St James on the back of an excellent 3-0 FAC 3rd round home win over Coventry the previous saturday but in the league we're looking for our 1st win since the 17th december when we beat Villa 1-0 & our 1st win on the road since 12th November, John Neal was in the early stages as manager with his team building needs to find some consistency in his players hes inherited, minus Graeme Souness who had recently departed to Liverpool Boro won this game 4-2 with a double from Billy Ashcroft with his 3rd & 4th goals of the season & his 1st Boro goals on his travels, in between Billys goals, Stuey Boam started the rout with his 1st of the season & Stan Cummins with his 3rd of the season John Neals team Jim Paltt John Craggs - returning to his former employers Ian Bailey John Mahoney Stuey Boam Alan Ramage David Mills Billy Ashcroft Tony McAndrew Davey Armstrong

  13. Boro flashback - This day, 13th January 1973 FAC 3rd round Boro flashback - This day, 13th January 1973 FAC 3rd round Plymouth 1 Boro 0 Stan Anderson considered his Boro future after this defeat to 3rd divison Plymouth, with one win since 2nd december Stan had the weekend to consider his position on whether to stay as manager of the Boro, & if so, a sad ending to a good managers reign & the 1st Boro manager for me following the Boro. He had put together a very good team, brought in some excellent signings, including my favourite player of all time, John Hickton & introduced some brilliant youngsters through the ranks, Willie Maddren, David Mills, David Armstrong, he had transformed the mighty Boro from a relegated team to a team constantly knocking on the door to win promotion to the 1st division, now PL Stan signed for the Boro from Newcastle in November 1965 as a player coach, the 1st such role in Boro's history, he then went on to become the 1st player to represent & captain all 3 north east teams, making his debut at Cardiff on November 4th in a 4 -3 defeat, January 1st seen him score his 1st goal in a 4-1 defeat at Rotherham & by April 66, with the team struggling & heading for the 3rd division, he was offered the position as manager & was appointed manager of the Boro, unfortunatly Stan couldn't halt the slide in to the 3rd divison for the 1st time in our history Stan got the Boro promoted at the 1st attempt & in the following 5 seasons had us finishing, 6th, 4th, 4th, 7th & his final full season 9th, this was long before the playoffs were even thought of Stan had proved to be a very good manager, good football, cracking FAC runs, with victories over Man Utd & West Ham, the Ayresome Angels supporters on the terraces from 66 had come & gone though Stan had one thing that never left him, his eye for a good player, John Hickton, Hughie Mcllmoyle, Willie Whigham, John Craggs, record signing Jonny Crossen, 6 foot 2 eye of blue Stuey Boam is after you, world cup winner Nobby Stiles & the introduction of Willie Maddren to eventually play alongside Boam as the telepathic twins, Jim Platt etc, etc, some of these players including his final 2 signing, Alan Foggon & Graeme Souness. who again, proved to be a master stroke for the incoming manager to take on & inherit a quality team ........big Jack come on in Jim Platt - Debut October 1971 John Craggs - Signed by Stan August 1971 Gordon Jones Nobby Stiles - Signed by Stan summer of 1971 Stuey Boam - Signed by Stan summer of 1971 Willie Maddren - Scoring debut 12th April 1969 Eric McMordie John Hickton - Signed by Stan scoring debut 24th September 1966 David Mills - Full debut 12th April 1969 Graeme Souness - Final signing by Stan, debut 6th January 1972 Alan Foggon - 2nd final signing by Stan, debut 25th November 1972 Sub - Malcolm Smith
