Play The Game...


Evening, folks. Tonight we'll have a bit of fun on the blog.

What you see above is a photo taken the last time I actually went to the Riverside, back in September '08. West Bromwich Albion were a newly promoted side, and we were on a winning run at home. That was when I'd booked my tickets to fly over - unfortunately, what hadn't happened yet was Tuncay damaging his ligaments on international duty. Result? We missed his creativity and work rate, yet we still outplayed them for the majority of the match. But we ended up losing 1-0 - and the victorious manager was, of all people, Tony Mowbray! He must never have thought he'd be sitting in the home dugout a mere two years on. Then again, stranger things may happen yet for Gareth Southgate - read this piece from Saturday's Mirror.

But anyway, back to the fun, so to speak. Can you name the seven players, from left to right, in the picture?

I'll give you a clue - none of them is wearing a Boro shirt today. Have fun!

Thanks, Brandon. You'll have to wait 'til tomorrow to find out if you're right, though - the correct answers will be posted in my next blog! :) So there's still time for our fellow Boro fans to have a go...
