The Teessiders trounced Doncaster 4-0 in last Friday night's Sky Bet Championship clash at the Riverside Stadium just days after Tony Mowbray's departure, and the caretaker manager is hoping they will continue in the same vein to achieve the kind of results he and Mowbray did at their former clubs.

Venus told the Evening Gazette: "I'm not going to shy away from attacking football. I have to go back to what got us success at other clubs.

"It's about time the players let themselves loose, to be honest. That's what I was hoping they would do.

"We have to work on the defensive side of things, of course, but all I could do was prepare them, talk to them, tell them what I expected and they tried to put that in place on Friday.

"We now have to grow off the back of this."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
