The Teessiders' latest accounts show the club made a loss of £13.93million during the year ending June 2013, meaning Gibson and his ownership group are having to plough in more than £1million a month to support it.

However, chief executive Neil Bausor insists Boro are in a healthy position despite the drop in revenue they have suffered since relegation from the top flight in 2009.

He said: "Middlesbrough Football Club continues to hold the enviable position of being a club without any external debt and with a very stable ownership.

"Steve Gibson and the group continue to be fully committed to support our ambition to return to the Premier League.

"Balancing our ambition for the first team against a challenging environment of Financial Fair Play rules is not easy, but we remain determined to use our financial resources to the maximum effect."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
