Tony Mowbray: Full of praise for "true" Boro fans

Just 12,793 spectators saw the Teessiders draw 1-1 with Huddersfield in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday evening, meaning more than 22,000 seats were unoccupied.

Mowbray told the Evening Gazette: "I think the people who are coming to the games at the moment are what I would call true Boro fans.

"They are going to be here through thick and thin and I can only thank them for their support.

"And I think the team, hopefully, showed that they are trying their best for them.

"We all want to win every game, of course. Hopefully that comes, this team clicks together and we win a lot of games."

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!
