Six Boro stars in, Leon Clarke axed: The best Sheff Utd and Middlesbrough combined XI



It is set to be a tense and nervy affair at Bramall Lane this evening, the Blades’ unthinkable assault on the top six could either spring into life or die in front of their very eyes. 

If ever a match was ‘do or die’, tonight is it.

A win will catapult them into the play-off frame again, possibly consigning Boro to seventh place if results go against them.

A defeat will end their brave interest in the top six.

On the other hand, Boro will be desperate for a win, the big-spending side have dispensed of a manager who couldn’t get them into the top six already this season. Pulis won’t feel any pressure, but a failure to get them up could well result in him looking for yet another job in the summer. Games don’t come much bigger than this.

There will be an array of talent of show tonight, both big money buys and hard-working professionals who have scrapped and fought to get where they are right now. FLW attempts to combine the two sides into one, all-action XI.
