19th August 1978
John Neal had seen both Dave Brown & Pat Cuff during season 77-78 to convince him neither keeper were in his plans going forward as the keeper to challenge Jim Platt for the No1 Jersey, both keepers were given 10 games each to stake their claim

Ironically Pat Cuffs final game for the Boro was the same game as Souness's final Boro game

In the summer of 78 John Neal signed Jim Stewart from Kilmarnock for approx £200k as the cover for the No1 shirt

Jim Stewart made his Boro debut in goal at home to Coventry, replacing Jim Platt as John Neals 1st choice keeper, fortunately normal service was resumed, Jim Platt Platt was loaned out to both Hartlepool & Cardiff that season, then early March regained his No1 slot & kept it

Graham Hedley was named as sub for his one & only appearance that season 
Billy Woof opened the scoring but Coventry hit back to score 2 goal & run out 2-1 winners at Ayresome Park

John Neal chose the following

Jim Stewart
John Craggs
Ian Bailey
John Mahoney
Stuart Boam
Alan Ramage
David Mills
Tony McAndrew
Billy Ashcroft
Billy Woof
Davey Armstrong
Sub
Graham Hedley

Boro flashback - 18th August 1989

Boro 4 Wolves 2

Boro started the season back in the 2nd division after a brief spell in the 1st & after, IMHO, unlucky to be relegated 

Boro gave debuts to Alan Comfort from Orient  & Trevor Putney from Norwich, 2 very exciting signing to hopefully help us achieve a swift  return to the top flight

With goals from Slaven 2, Proctor & a rare Davenport strike, with us playing exciting football with a new exciting winger in Comfort the aggressive Putney in midfield it looked good for the Boro, fingers crossed we can maintain it

Boro team

Gary Parkinson

Nicky Mohan

Tony Mowbray

Trevor Putney

Gary Paalster, his final home game before his transfer to Man Utd

Boro flashback - 42 years ago today, 20th August 1977

Boro sporting a new, quality, iconic strip that season took to the field for the start of a brand new season, along with the change of strip we had a new manager in the dug out

John Neal left Wrexham to become our 18th manager, taking over from big Jack & what a man to follow1

JN's 1st league game in charge & against the might of Liverpool at Ayresome Park, included in the line ups were 2 debutees & two transfer record signings in each team, John Mahoneys our £90k record signing Stoke & Kenny Dalglish £440k signing from Celtic

Dalglish scored 1st to open his account & put Liverpool ahead, our own superstar, Davey Armstrong equalised to make it 1-1 in front of 30,800


Great times been a Boro fan

I think that is probably my favourite ever Boro shirt. 

It was a quality top without a doubt

    • I fully agree with CT on this, that performance tonight was absolutely turgid and nothing like what Woodgate has said he wants his teams to play like. I'm personally of the opinion that I don't really care about performance aslong as we win, but we were getting results under Pulis mostly and played much better than what I seen tonight for the most part. Confirmation Bias is definitely effecting peoples positivity on Pulis football vs Woodgate football. I have absolutely no doubt we would have had more points on the board so far and been through in the cup if TP was still in charge, but as has been said, Woodgate might just need time, but if anybody can sit and say what we produced tonight was better than 'Pulisball' they aren't being subjective at all and are purely basing it on a dislike for Pulis. FWIW I thought it was time for Pulis to go so this isn't me defending TP, but what we're seeing isnt much different to last year. 
    • Like I said in my other post, people hated Pulis for far more than that. I don't think all of it was actually justified, certainly not to begin with and certainly not all the time. Surely this situation proves that more than anything, where people can see a similar thing from a different manager and feel quite significantly different about it. There was that undertone to his tenure that existed far beyond what people saw at the Riverside and it bled into the atmosphere within the Stadium too, I imagine. I think at times some hated him more for the reputation of his football than they actually hated his football to begin with, despite claiming that it was entirely the latter and I find that quite bizarre.
    • People kicked off about my post not the other way around.  I was just confused about certain things as I often am on here 🙂
    • We were able to beat what was in front of us last season as well.  I suppose I am waiting to see more and I didn't see anything tonight even though we won.  Like I say, the performance is the performance whoever is in charge but maybe that's a flawed way of looking at it, I don't know.
