'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Smoggy Team News

Middlesbrough boss Steve McClaren has turned his back on the Premiership of late, having other fish to fry. 25 cup ties this season, with one more to come, so his players are understandably struggling. Look at Tottenham ... they've only had TWO cup ties this season!

The Boro boss is tipped to become the next England manager, after the latest FA shambles, so this could be the ideal time to knock seven bells out of them.

McClaren made nine alterations to his line-up, drafting in a number of Academy graduates, for the UEFA Cup finalists' Premiership clash with Everton on Saturday.

A number of senior players could return with the likes of Chris Riggott, Frank Queudrue, Stuart Parnaby, George Boateng, Fabio Rochemback, Massimo Maccarone and Stewart Downing back in contention.

Gareth Southgate andg Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink may be given longer to rest hamstring injuries while Mark Viduka has also had a slight thigh problem.


Middlesbrough (from): Jones, McMahon, Ehiogu, Wheater, Taylor, Doriva, Parlour, Morrison, Yakubu, Christie, Johnson, Knight, Davies, Cattermole, Graham, Bates, Riggott, Queudrue, Parnaby, Rochemback, Downing, Boateng, Viduka, Hasselbaink, Maccarone, Southgate.

He's one of the top 3 in the world at the moment, so obviously we need him. Don't agree that we have no chance without him though. We are ENGLAND, and we win through in adversity. So lets get behind the lads, whoever is picked. Lets have some positivity !!!!!
