Boro beat lowly Hartlepool on Westley's return to the hotseat and then drew with Portsmouth before falling to defeats against play-off chasing Yeovil and Swindon.

Westley admits his squad are still adjusting to his methods but has been pleased with much of what he has seen.

"I think a lot of the lads are trying to apply themselves to new things," said Westley.

"In some instances it's not in their body to give you the game that they want to give you, you can see lads who are desperately trying to do what you ask them to do but physically they're just not quite there, or mentally they're just not switched on to the intensity that you want, so it's been good.

"In the four games so far the results have certainly not been spectacular, but I don't think anybody expected them to be. We all knew these were going to be tough games, and tough tests, and I have learned tonnes."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
