Middlesbrough must quickly change, and Michael Carrick defends the transfer market.

Middlesbrough is still without a league victory, and Michael Carrick has stated that his team has to develop and find a “extra spark.”


Insisting that he is “delighted” with his Middlesbrough team, Michael Carrick advises the group to go forward rather than obsess about the players who have left the organization. After losing to QPR at home and extending their winless streak to five games, Boro is presently at the bottom of the Championship.

The visitors took advantage of Carrick’s team’s carelessness to steal all three points as they missed a string of opportunities at the Riverside. Boro came close to reaching Wembley last season, but a significant personnel change over the summer appears to have led to a sluggish start.

The team’s leading scorer Chuba Akpom, as well as loanees Cameron Archer, Ryan Giles, and Jacob Ramsey, all left after entering the final year of their contracts. After adding Alex Bangura on the final day of the signing period, Boro have added 12 senior players overall.

Carrick won’t use this reversal as a “easy justification” for his team’s poor performance in the Championship thus far. The Boro manager has urged the available players to adjust and reclaim “that extra spark.”

It’s my squad, delighted with the players we have, got, delighted with the squad,” Carrick told the media. “Results haven’t shown that at the moment.” We are here to turn performances into victories, and I have no doubt that we can do that.

Football is a dynamic sport; teams morph, players come and go, you have to find a way, you have to advance. Of course, given the circumstances, it is easy to be pessimistic, depressed, and disappointed, but at the same time, we must accept ourselves as we are and not look too far ahead or back.

I am pleased with the team; we just need to find that extra spark. The team is really capable.
