Our Middlesbrough fans here in the Transfer Tavern really can’t wait for their side to get going this season as they are one of the favourites to get into the Premier League at the end of the year.
From the moment the club was relegated from the top flight last season plans were put in place to make sure they have the best chance to come back strongly and they have certainly been followed up on so far.
Indeed, the club has spent big on players like Britt Assombalonga whilst Garry Monk has also arrived as manager and the latest signing – Ashley Fletcher – has once again underlined their determination.
Indeed, arriving from West Ham, the forward has plenty of potential to realise on Teeside and after the club confirmed the deal on Twitter, fans certainly had something to say:

Hope he enjoys it here and scores lots of goals but still tries his best when he doesn’t score x
