Our Middlesbrough fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to seeing what their side does in the Championship this season.
The men from Teeside dropped back into the second tier at the end of last year but many are backing them to be one of the sides to beat in the race for promotion in this campaign.
Indeed, in Garry Monk they have a well-respected manager and they’ve certainly spent the money needed to try and get back into the top flight at the first time of asking.
Certainly, the likes of Britt Assombalonga arriving has caused quite a stir and one fan has decided to get a tattoo of his name – combined with his own.
The player, then, certainly had something to say when he saw it on Twitter and many have also reacted from across the footballing spectrum so here’s the best of what has been said:
