[W]hen we started The Two Unfortunates back in 2009, one of our formative influences was Mike Baker, purveyor of Smog Blog, a site devoted to all things Middlesbrough FC. Like Teesside's favourite delicacy, the parmo, Mike would plunge you into a gooey concoction of overspending, unlikely UEFA Cup appearances and Scottish imports, served with a huge dollop of world weariness.

Match Of The Past: Middlesbrough FC

Twohundredpercent at related • 0 views

We continue our series of archived videos of the Football League Championship this afternoon with Middlesbrough, and six matches from the years between 1969 and 1992 which feature pitch invasions, local derby wins and promotion parties. Our first match, however, is a little more mundane. With the club having played no Division One football between 1955 and 1974, it is perhaps unsurprising that the club seldom featured on Match Of The Day.

Gordon Strachan will have a new face to work with next season in the shape of Matthew Bates who is on the verge of returning to full fitness after suffering an agonising knee ligament injury last summer, which kept him on the sidelines for the whole of last season.

The 23-year-old had a brilliant season two years ago and was amongst only a handful of star performers in Boro's Premier League relegation team in 2008/09 with 17 appearances in the league.

There were doubts surrounding the future of Gary O'Neil when Gordon Strachan was ordered to withdraw the player from the squad in a couple of the last remaining games of the season. A transfer agreement with Portsmouth, O'Neil's former club, stated that if the player was to reach the 100 appearance mark then Boro would have to pay Pompey an extra £1million on top of the original fee paid in 2007 which was around £4million.

I've kept very optimistic over the course of the season sensing that we might sneak into the Play-Off's but after three consecutive draws it is becoming more and more difficult for Middlesbrough to make a charge for a top-six spot in the Coca-Cola Championship.

We have five very winnable games coming up starting with Preston North End tonight which could be a massive platform for the remainder of the season if Strachan's boys can produce a decent performance and ground out a winning result.

Boro have threatened both Newcastle United and Derby County in the space of three days but the opposition were also resilient enough to produce goals of their own which resulted in two consecutive draws. Strachan will be pleased with the way we have been creating chances at one end of the reason but will be less than happy when he looks at the last four goals we have conceded.

Today, Middlesbrough FC released former Sporting KC forward, Kei Kamara. Kamara left KC a year ago to join the Championship club after impressing on a loan to EPL side, Norwich City late in the 2012-2013 EPL season. In his 12 months with Middlesbrough though, Kamara struggled. After a good start with the club, he picked up a knee injury around the middle of the season and could never get his place back.
