Aliadiere: New Middlesbrough style this term
tribalfooball.com - August 09, 2007

New Middlesbrough signing Jeremie Aliadiere has revealed manager Gareth Southgate wants to change the style of football they're playing.

He told Boro's website: "It's a big change but the manager wants us to play football in the same style to Arsenal which excites me.

"We are trying to play with lots of passing and moving so hopefully it will suit my game.

"I just want to enjoy football again and get my confidence back and do my very best for the team.

"I don't have any targets personally; all I want to do is win games with Middlesbrough."

Everton to break transfer record for Middlesbrough's Yakubu
tribalfooball.com - August 16, 2007

Everton are launching a club record 11 million bid for Middlesbrough striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni.
The Daily Mail says Everton chairman Bill Kenwright is ready to make the improved bid as the Nigeria international emerges as Dave Moyes' No1 transfer target before the summer window shuts.

re: GOOD MORNING

Middlesbrough are closing in on signing Al-Ahly striker Emad Moteab and midfielder Mohamed Shawky.

Al-Ahly sporting director Hossam El Badary told The Sun: "The two players will be with Middlesbrough next week for observation after we reached a deal with the English side.

"We have received several bids for these two players, in particular from European clubs, but Middlesbrough's offer was the most lucrative.

"We have had a long and tortuous negotiation before we agreed to release them because we don't want them to go through any exhaustive trials as they are world-class players.

"If the players are successful in the observation and medicals we should close the deal before the close of the transfer window."

Middlesbrough's Huth suffers fresh setback

Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate admits defender Robert Huth has suffered a setback as he attempts to recover from an ankle injury.
"He's had a bit of a setback," confirmed Southgate on Boro's website. "He's gone to see a specialist to see what's happened.

"We're in a phase where we're getting an incredible number of things thrown at us, none of them positive."

Southgate: Mido can settle at Middlesbrough
tribalfooball.com - August 16, 2007

Tottenham striker Mido has completed his 6 million move to Middlesbrough.
Gareth Southgate believes Mido can thrive on the sort of service Boro are capable of providing - particularly from England winger Stewart Downing.

The Boro boss told his club's website: "He is someone I played against as a player and he always impressed me.


"He gave me a hard game and he certainly has attributes I'd like to bring into the team to give us different options.

"When you've got one of the best crossers of the balls in the league in Stewart Downing, you want someone like Mido who can head the ball.

"You want a centre-forward to hold the ball up, to be a physical presence and to score goals. Mido brings all of those attributes."

Mido joined Tottenham on loan from Italian Serie A side Roma.

He scored 11 goals in 27 league starts during the 18-month loan spell, prompting Spurs to make the move permanent.

However, Dimitar Berbatov, Robbie Keane, Darren Bent and Jermaine Defoe were all above him in the queue for striking slots at White Hart Lane.

Southgate added: "Mido is a player I believe possibly has a point to prove.

"He is a player of great ability, a strong player and a big character - someone who can lead from the front.

"He's got good technical ability and he's a goalscorer. He has got a desire to come here and score goals, and that is an important thing for any team.

"In terms of the squad, we needed another striker and he will give us different options. He's very good in the air, and that will be an important contribution.

"We have got some very good players here, players of great character and big reputation.

"That's one of the reasons we were able to attract Mido to come here. We need strength in depth and I feel we need four strikers to provide competition for places."

MIDO TOLD: BE NASTY

Have your say: Football forum
Mido has been ordered to bring a nasty streak to Middlesbrough after completing his 6million move last night.

The Egyptian striker quit Tottenham and signed a four-year deal. He has been granted a work permit and Boro boss Gareth Southgate wants Mido to help shake up his side with his 'edge'. Mido is in the squad for Boro's trip to Fulham tomorrow where Southgate's men are looking to avoid a hat-trick of defeats this season. Boro is Mido's eighth club in his eightyear professional career. And Southgate said: "Mido has a great pedigree and is technically very gifted. I have seen in training already he will get hold of other players and make demands.

"The squad needs an edge and I don't mind a bit of nastiness. We are in a man's world and we need to stand up and be counted."

Good morning Ray

How are you, Good news that Gareth seems to realise we can have No More Mister Nice Guy approach.
Mido will bring that moaning whinging kicking up the backside edge that we lost with JFH.

Seems like Yak is off (I am now 100% behind his sale and lets use the money for strengthening with 2 quality players.

Lets hope our season starts Saturday FFS

Morning mate how are you? . Well i agree something has to be done we just can't carry on like this some players who think they are above being dropped should have thier fooking arses kicked mate . I would sell him now he's most probably along with Arnie upsetting the rest of them and yes then spend it strengthening the team .

re: GOOD MORNING

I am a lot calmer, but very with the squad, some players clearly think they are better than they really are -
I think alas this season will make or break our hearts and we have 2 weeks to sort it

This is Sir Gareths biggest challenge to date, lets hope he comes through it with his balls intact

ray192 Posted on 17/8 8:07
re: GOOD MORNING

Mido completes six million pounds move to Middlesbrough
Fri 17 Aug 2007, 5:43 GMT

[-] Text [+] LONDON (Reuters) - Egypt international striker Mido completed his move to Middlesbrough from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday in a six million pounds deal.

Boro said Mido, 24, had signed a four-year contract, had been granted a work permit and was available for Saturday's away trip to Fulham.

"He is someone I played against as a player and he always impressed me," Boro manager Gareth Southgate told the club's Web site www.mfc.premiumtv.co.uk.

"He's got good technical ability and he's a goalscorer.

"When you've got one of the best crossers of the ball in the league in Stewart Downing, you want someone like Mido who can head the ball."

Middlesbrough, who lost Australia striker Mark Viduka to north-east rivals Newcastle United in June, have lost their first two league games of the season.

Mido had been set to join Birmingham City in the close season but a move fell through.

The African Young Player of the Year for 2002, Mido has played previously for Zamalek, Ghent, Ajax, Celta Vigo, Olympique Marseille and Roma in an itinerant career.

He scored five times in 23 appearances for Tottenham in the 2006/07 season.

re: GOOD MORNING

I actually think Sir Gareth is wise to this and Knows what he needs to do - Keeping the faith is not easy in times like this but we must - Thee boo boys are a worry but 4 points from the next 2 games are a necessity to kick start the season and silence the boo boys

COME ON BORO FFS

re: GOOD MORNING

Morning Ray, how are you?

Another disappointing start to the season then.
Southgate unable to understand why we didn't have a go at Wigan implies that we need someone on the pitch to get everyone fired up. Could it be time to phase out Boateng and play Cattermole in that position do you think? Then we just need a box-to-box midfielder a la Kevin Nolan and back up for Tuncay (why was he taken off the other night?) on the right now that Morrison has gone.

What's all this talk of a new board about?

Oh, by the way, tea and toast when you're ready please.

KEEP THE FAITH!

Yep, I agree. I think Boateng is Southgate's first big test as a manager. Great workhorse over the years but we need fresh legs and, going forward, someone who can hit a cow's arse with a banjo when he shoots.
