Boro led twice at Birmingham on Friday night, but ultimately returned from the midlands empty-handed after conceding three times.

Mowbray said: "Let's not criticise anybody, it is what it is and the team have been great this season.

"With performances like we have had in the last couple of away games, we will win more than we lose.

"But we are here to try to get out of this league and win football matches.

"We have to understand the urgency of it, and we can't lose three goals of that nature."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
