Middlesbrough’s first half did not impress their former striker.
If Boro continue to perform like that the tele is going thru the window, and if I don't appear on Facebook live at 6 it's because I have followed it.

Will Carling heaped praise on Australia captain Michael Hooper following his decision to withdraw from his side’s clash with Argentina.
Australian captain Michael Hooper heads home, not in the right mindset to put the team first & fulfill his role. Brave and honest man. Very few people can understand how incredible it is to capt your country, but also how draining. This honesty reflects a hugely impressive leader
