His move to reassure fans comes amid reports Championship rivals Nottingham Forest have made a fresh bid to sign Grant Leadbitter from the Riverside outfit.

But Mowbray says the club are trying to put a team together to compete in the division.

The Middlesbrough boss told the Evening Gazette: "I don't think our supporters should be concerned about any of our best players leaving.

Supportive chairman

"The chairman is very supportive about the fact that we are trying to build a team to get out of this league.

"Why would you sell your best players to your potential rivals? I don't think that's something we should be concerning ourselves about.

"We're trying to build a team not dismantle one or chase money.

"We're trying to put together a team that can be competitive at the top end of the table."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
