The downfall of Middlesbrough Football Club is the overinflated fan expectations.
Before the season started we were happy with sneaking into the playoffs, now after a good start it seems nothing but automatic promotion will do. Now fans are on about staying away (despite not going in the first place) which surely will have a negative effect on the team.
In addition to he above the fans are obsessed with a meaningless cup game this week that we will no doubt lose but Boro, in their eyes, should win and then they will use the Sunderland defeat to beat the club with further.
I wish our fans would just get real, support the lads and spend their personal time on more constructive things rather than slagging their team off on the internet.
