Tony Mowbray: Will want his side to finish well

Boro were candidates for automatic promotion from the Championship for much of the season, but a run of 12 defeats in 16 games has seen them slip out of the race even for a play-off place.

Halliday told the club's official website: "As a group of players, we think we should at least be in the play-offs.

"But we are not, so from now until the end of the season, the mindset has to be to get as many points as we can, and these games against the teams immediately above us are six-pointers and winning them can change everything.

"You can end the season with a whimper or on a high and give the fans something to shout about.

"Don't get me wrong, we'll all be disappointed if we don't achieve our goal, but we have to at least end the season on a high."

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
