The Teessiders were riding high in the Championship table at the turn of the year, but have slipped out of contention since with just three victories in 19 games.

While their home record is their best in 15 years - they have collected 41 points from their 22 fixtures at the Riverside Stadium to date - they have managed only five wins and 17 points on the road.

Mowbray told the club's official website: "Some of the performances have more than warranted it, and yet we can't hide from the statistics.

"Our home record is as good as we have had for a number of years and if we had a half-decent away record, we would be in the play-offs.

"We have found it difficult and everyone will have their own opinions on why. It's too late now, the season has two games to go and we have got to try to get the six points."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
