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."

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
