Mowbray has found himself in the firing line in recent weeks after Boro's hopes of securing a return to the Premier League at the fourth attempt wilted and died.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
