Middlesbrough supporters unimpressed with Strachan's tenure

Middlesbrough fans have delivered a damning verdict on Gordon Strachan's first year in charge at the Riverside Stadium. More than 78% of supporters who responded to a survey carried out by the town's evening newspaper, the Evening Gazette, expressed the opinion that he should not remain as manager.

An overwhelming 92.8% classed his overall performance as poor, while 91.3% gave a similar verdict on the entertainment value at the Riverside Stadium under his tenure.

Ironically, the famously acerbic Scot's highest approval rating came for his media dealings, with 2.7% of fans opting for "excellent" and a further 8.9% "good".

Strachan's reign began with a 1-0 home defeat by Plymouth on October 31 last year, and of the 44 matches Boro have played since, they have won just 13.
