The 4 worst Middlesbrough signings from the last 5 years – Agreed?



Tony Pulis is currently hunting a Premier League return with Middlesbrough, utilising his own unique brand of football.

He’s not quite as ‘anti-football’ as some thought at Stoke City, his Boro side do have some attractive players going forward as well as a strong back line, but there’s no denying a Pulis side when they’re playing.

Direct is perhaps a strong word, but robust, determined and resolute would all be fair assessments of the way they approach a game. It isn’t to everyone’s liking, but he gets the right men for the job and they do it well.

It hasn’t always been the case at Boro, they’ve had a mix of styles, from Karanka pressing to Monk passing and now to Pulis. In those spells they had players who have made a huge impact and one or two who have perhaps not impressed.

Peer out from behind your eyes Boro fans, here FLW’s run down of four terrible signings for Boro in the last five years.
