Everyone at Boro is responsible.

Everyone at our football club is collectively responsible for our demise this season. From our recruitment team to the chairman.
Our negative brand of football, negative tactics, negative results, lack of goals, poor signings in January and promoting from within when AK left, has all been detrimental to our downfall.
We all knew it was going to be difficult. But no one told us it was going to be boring, tedious and at times embarrassing.
We have had 16 games since the turn of the year and no wins. We are the lowest scorers in all four divisions. This sums up our season perfectly and these are the most damning statistics of all. They are not opinion they are fact. For those blinkered, biased, voiceless backslappers out there who don’t like my negative comments, well I’m a realist, not a fantasist and I class myself as an adopted Teessider. I love the area and the people and I love the football club. The team that gave me my opportunity to fulfil my footballing dreams. But I can’t suffer in silence and watch my team surrender our premiership status without having a go and putting up a fight.
I have always regarded chairman Steve Gibson as The King of Teesside. His crown has recently slipped but I’m sure come August it will be firmly back in place.
He is the greatest chairman in the country. The envy of opposing supporters and we should be proud we have him. He has done wonders for the club but he is not infallible, no one is. I am sure he would openly admit, he doesn’t get everything right.
Everything has changed at Middlesbrough Football Club over the year, players, manager and coaches have all come and gone.
Only two things remain the loyal supporters and the loyal chairman. Without these two there would be no club.
UTB.

    Well said Bernie. I agree that everyone is to blame. In order of smallest amount of blame first
    The supporters you could say are a little to blame for driving out Karanka. Whether he was the future or not I believe we would have picked up the odd point and not been hammered 4-0 yesterday under his leadership.
    Players – how many can say they have given their all this season – Clayton, Gibson and Valdes after a rocky start. In their defence a few are just not Premiership players and are out of their depth.
    Steve Gibson for letting Karanka go without having a suitable candidate in place and for giving Neil Bausor the transfer dealings.
    Aitor Karanka was a breathe of fresh air at this club and did a brilliant job until the start of the year. He put bums on seats and brought some passion back to the club. He also had us playing really attractive football at times. The championship season was the best for years. The main blame for Karanka was not having a plan B and not been willing to change. Also were his transfer targets too ambitious for our club ? We will never know.
    Steve Agnew for not been man enough to admit he wasn’t up for the job. If he had this would have forced Gibson to look elsewhere. Also for not having the bottle to deviate away from Karanka. Gibson said we needed a change and Agnew does not give us that
    Neil Bausor – the majority of the blame goes to him. The January transfer window was a joke. Karanka came across as a very organised man who had everything planned out. You can’t tell me he didn’t have players he wanted to sign and back up players as well. Bausor didn’t deliver on any of these and then embarrassingly bought from the bargain bucket players Karanka did not want to try and hide the embarrassment. Majority of the blame has to sit here. The guy is out of his depth at negotiating with Agents and Players.
