Middlesbrough spurned a glorious chance yesterday of making the League Cup semi-finals by losing to League One strugglers Burton Albion at The Riverside.
Consequently, a plethora of Boro fans took to Twitter, and were demanding one thing: for manager Tony Pulis to get fired. Almost all the fans were calling for the same thing, as they have grown increasingly tired with the manager. The Welshman was frequently accused of being a dinosaur, and the fans want a modern manager to save their season.
Boro are slipping down the Championship table, and are now in sixth place, and are now without a win in their last five games in all competitions. They fielded a full-strength side yesterday against a team in the division below, but still could not get the results. What were troubling times for Boro fans has surely become a crisis.
This is what the fans had to say:
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS…

Pulis is a dinosaur and his management style is no longer viable in professional football. Need someone young and dynamic with modern management skills. Time for change

Tell Gibson this is why the place is empty, we are a complete and utter shambles. Only going in one direction and it isn’t up
