Tony Mowbray: Unhappy with the four goals Middlesbrough conceded

Tony Mowbray: Unhappy with the four goals Middlesbrough conceded

Palace winger Wilfried Zaha was a menace throughout as the hosts moved up to fourth, leaving Boro in sixth and five points from an automatic promotion spot.

"If we are looking for reasons, the amount we put in against Leeds in such a physical game (1-0 win on Tuesday) appears to have taken it out of some," Mowbray said.

"That appears to be the case. But there are no excuses. Individual errors cost us for the goals. We knew they had talented forward players going forward. But my players are sitting there disappointed.

"We lost four goals at Ipswich a few weeks ago. We can't keep doing that.

"We are still in the top six and our ambitions are to remain there. We are capable of winning matches. We have to get back to our old form, but at the moment that seems a long way away.

"Three of our back four are out at the moment, but we have to get on with it. Justin Hoyte, Jonathan Woodgate and Seb Hines are injured and we have to take it on the chin."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
