End of term report card

Middlesbrough end of term report: Star pupil, attendance, worst behaved and more...

Aden Flint at 7m from Bristol City was a steal, and John Obi Mikel was a lovely mid-season addition. A goalscorer would have been nice too, though.

Close, agonisingly close to a play-off spot. One point, in fact. A fine effort, but ultimately not good enough from Boro this time around.

3. League form B minus

The Carabao Cup run was excellent, as the side made it to the quarter-finals. The 4th round FA Cup exit to Newport County was slightly less impressive.
