O'Neil says no.
Martin O'Neil says he doesn't want the job at the Riverside stadium as he feels he has better options elsewhere and he doesn't think the Championship is the right level for him to be managing at. Martin O'Neil has put a name forward to the clubs directors but nothing has been decided on the clubs new manager and Gary Pendrey is still the caretaker manager at the Riverside stadium.

Elvin's the man.
James Elvin is the new manager at the Riverside stadium today and has replaced former manager Tony Mowbary.

Jermaine Johnson to boro?

Jermaine Johnson to boro?
Sheffield Wednesday's attacking midfielder Jermaine Johnson has been linked with a move to the Riverside stadium. James Elvin is a massive fan of Jermaine but the Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine says it will be tough to get Jermaine to Middlesbrough as he is currently out injured and it doesn't look like he will be even doubtful for the end of the transfer market wich will put a big blow on James Elvins plans

"Jermaine has pace skill and he defenders fear him i thought he was going to move to Nottingham Forest but both clubs fell apart with the negotiants and he is still a Sheffield Wednesday player." James Elvin said.

Awful august for boro!

Awful August for Middlesbrough.
Middlesbrough have made a really bad start to the season in the Npower Championship

It all started with a 1-0 defeat away to Coventry View attachment 125228
It was fair to say we got outclassed Robbie Savage,Kyle Walker and Juniouir Stanislas all made there debuts none of them was really impressive.

The League cup first round draw had been kind to Middlesbrough having been drawn against League one outfit Rochdale at the Riverside they won the game 3-0
View attachment 125229

Then Middlesbrough travled to Milwall and came away with a 2-1 win Middlesbrough again outclassed but came away with three points at a very difficult place to pick up anything
View attachment 125230

Middlesbrough entertained Leicester and Middlesbrough again outclassed losing 1-0
View attachment 125231

Then it was the League cup second round for Middlesbrough and came away with a 1-0 it should have been more but some fine keeping by Julian Speroni kept it at just one with about five or six top class saves View attachment 125232

Ipswich were the next visitors to the Riverside and came away with a 2-1 Grant Ledbitter tore Middlesbrough apart from start to finish View attachment 125233

Before the Norwich game on the final day of the transfer market rumors was occuing saying James Elvin had signed 2 players from Carlisle Gary Madine and Paul Theirwell. These rumors were true as both of the players made there debuts at Carrow Road but none of them made a good debut but no one for Middlesbrough had a good game after being battered 3-0

Elvin has 3 games to save his job!

3 Games or gone!
After yet another defeat to Middlesbrough Steve Gibson has told James Elvin he has 3 games to save his job he must win at least two of them to keep his job otherwise he will be sacked as the Middlesbrough boss.

The fans agree with Steve Gibson they want him out today if they could but the board are trying to give him support to keep his job as the gaffer​

---------- Post added at 03:07 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:31 AM ----------

Last Game for Elvin?
James Elvin could be an unemployed manager next week if his side done beat Portsmouth at home. Elvin has been warned about this matter and his response was "How is this much preasuare going to give me confidence in my job and i think everyone on the board are uselsess they given me a good buget ive got some left i recuved a phone call at 2:30 am from Steve Gibson on Tuesday night after the Derby game he told me to get my office cleared out because it looks like there will be someone else in that room on Monday morning when youre out of a job" This has shocked the nation of football what can James Elvin do if the results arent coming there way then they dont go your way. James has been given support by many other chairmans and fans across the country and trying to give him the confidence so his side can pull a result out of the bag.

James Elvin out!
James Elvin's last game as Middlesbrough manager today but he will represent the club in the league cup 3rd round on Wednesday away to Manhcester City.

Steve Gibson was going to offer him the job as a coach but he changed his mind and he is now the "caretaker boss" Steve wants to thank him for his hard work but the results didn't pay off for his efforts.

Middlesbrough players dont want James to leave but he has been told to leave after the Manchester City game on Wednesday.

Rumors are that James Elvin is in talks with another club as being manager but nothing has occured in any sort of manner​

Elvin and Jewell to work together.
Steve Gibson has let Elvin keep his job but he will be working with Paul Jewell to try and get this club back to the big time.

Paul Jewell added "He is a good manager and yes he has had no backing from the bored.
We both are going to be working together day in day out to try and get this club back to the dreamland."

Steve Gibson also stated "We have aplogised to James for not giving him any backing but we decided to give him more backing by bringing in Paul Jewell to work with James Elvin we want to wish them both the best at this football club."

This was appointed after Middlesbrough's 2-1 defeat to Manchester city in the league cup third round
