Great team! and a great manager!!

No forgetting, Ayresome park , team running out to power game, the smell of Bovril in the air.. great great memories as a 12yr old...
I will never forget my first visit to Ayersome Park in the 60's, I loved the place but God was it dump when we left.

I am sure I won't be the first or the last to say, that was the best ever Boro team I've watched and made better because I was only 13.
Have some cracking photos with a number of that glorious team & still (sort of) friends with a few of them today in Jim Platt & Peter Brine & lucky to have met & had a couple of beer's with Mr Middlesbrough, John Hickton
We knock the Geordies, mostly with light hearted banter, unless of course they are punching horses. But you have to admit that they produce the Boro a good stock of Managers from time to time, hopefully including Michael Carrick.
Biggest compliment is you expected to win the vast majority of games with this team- apart from Man City away second leg of the League Cup!

Brilliant team / squad. They were special days
