Tony Mowbray: Middlesbrough boss looking forward to end of the season

Boro have gone from genuine contenders for automatic promotion at the turn of the year to outsiders for the final play-off spot after collecting just eight of the last 51 Championship points they have contested.

Mowbray told the club's official website in the wake of Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by Brighton: "Another defeat is hard to take, and I have to say it's unacceptable for a team of our stature in the league, who were sitting second in the league at new year, to have won two out of 15 or 16 games.

"The league is very tight and lose another game or two and we will be looking over our shoulders.

"At this moment, the end of the season can't come quickly enough for us.

"Let's get these games played and reassess in the summer and decide where we're going."

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!
