Tony Mowbray: Happy with Andy Halliday

Halliday joined Boro in 2010 from Livingston as a winger, but he has since been moved into a more defensive role.

The 21-year-old started Boro's 3-0 win over Huddersfield and he earned praise from Mowbray who has decided to convert him.

"I never had any doubts about Andy Halliday. I was not sure he was going anywhere as an attacking player but I felt he could play left-back," said Mowbray.

"I thought it was a big ask to play him against Albert Adomah at the weekend but this was an opportunity for him to show us what he could do."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
