RAMIREZ JOINS TEAMMATES IN SPAIN

Star player Gaston Ramirez has joined up with his teammates in Spain as he is set to continue with the club this term.


The player was heavily linked with a move to struggling Leicester City but Boro disallowed the deal.

The player is now keen to rebuild his reputation at the club after he handed in a transfer request to exit the Riverside Stadium. The former Southampton player has not featured in the last six games for Boro due to a knee injury he picked up. The 26-year old playmaker would join teammates in Spain for a four-day training break so he can return refreshed for the race to finish the campaign well.

“He is and he will be an important player in this team and he knows that. He know the effort that the club made to sign him last season and therefore that the club made this summer to sign him permanently,” Boro manager Aitor Karanka said. (more…)

Sigi Schmid tried new Position for Brad Evans

Sigi Schmid tried to invent a new position for midfielder Brad Evans, although it was largely due to the club’s current injury problems.

The midfielder was used as a centre back in the recent match against San Jose Earthquakes. The experiment proved to be a disaster after Seattle Sounders conceded three goals and lost the match 3-2. This turned out to be the first setback of the season for the club and it has come very early in the campaign. Seattle Sounders managed a convincing 3-0 win over New England Revolution in the first match of the season.

This victory raised hopes that the club would challenge for a title this season. However, they have been brought back to earth after this defeat, which leaves them six points adrift of the leaders Dallas even at this early stage.Schmid can take heart from the fact that Dallas have played one game more than Seattle Sounders. Despite the failure in the first match,Schmid intends to carry on with his experiment and it is almost certain that Evans may continue in the centre back position if the club’s injury situation does not improve before the next match against table leaders Dallas. Seattle Sounders are away from home for this key clash. (more…)
