IT BARELY gets a mention here, given the embarrassing situation the club is in a present, but Goaltastic is a Middlesbrough supporter.
The last mention was a post back in September, about how Gordon Strachan was trying – and in restrospect failing – to turn the club’s fortunes around.
Now he’s torn up his contract and walked away, leaving the Boro out of the Championship relegation zone on goal difference alone.
Now as pre-season promotion favourites, we clearly have the talent to climb back up, what we need is the bottle to do it.
That’s why I would like to see the ferocious Graeme Souness installed over favourites such as Tony Mowbray, Gary Megson and Paul Ince – he doesn’t mince his words with underperforming players, he’s taken teams to promotion before, and I think a blood and thunder approach like his is just what this division requires.
