Last night's statement from Middlesbrough Football Club in which they confirmed
"..that Head Coach Aitor Karanka will be resuming first team duties with the club with immediate effect."
was not only a massive u turn by both parties but an unprecedented move in football. It is difficult to recall another occasion when a manager has walked out, been refused entry to the training ground and missed a game only to return to his post a few days later. What happens next remains to be seen but if Boro are to secure one of the automatic promotion spots, something needs to change. Their performances at Blackburn, Rotherham & Charlton were abject and when the Tigers roar into town on Friday there needs to be a much better and bigger commitment from all concerned.
