Tony Mowbray: Hurt by Middlesbrough's poor form

The Teessiders find themselves seven points shy of the play-offs after a disastrous run of 12 defeats in 16 Championship games, during which time they have accumulated just eight points.

However, Steele insists neither Mowbray nor his players have given up hope of a fightback into contention.

He told the Northern Echo: "You can tell every time you speak to him that he is hurting.

"Everybody is hurting because we all wanted this to happen. We all wanted promotion. He is trying his hardest to turn things around.

"There is still a glimmer of hope there and we are more than capable of winning the next five games, even though we have not shown that in recent months."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
