Our landlord here at the Transfer Tavern has been impressed with the way in which Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough have adapted to life in the Premier League.
Indeed, Boro were very unlucky not to come away from their game against title hunting Tottenham with a point.
Meanwhile, they’ve also got themselves into the next round of the FA Cup after a victory over Accrington Stanley, albeit not in the most easiest of fashions.
Everyone has been full of praise for a number of Karanka’s men – with the majority talking about how many times Victor Valdes has saved them or at the other end how much Alvaro Negredo’s goals have been vital in games!
They are very right to heap praise on the two former Spanish internationals but there have been a number of key players that have had very little mention on the impact they’ve made for Boro this season.
With that in mind, then, these two West Brom players definitely deserve more respect and recognition…
