TONY MOWBRAY was announced as the new manager of the Boro on Tuesday October 26 2010 and was the Championship's longest serving manager by the time he left the club almost exactly three years later.
GORDON STRACHAN was introduced as the 28th Middlesbrough manager on Monday October 26 2009.
BORO lost no time in appointing a new manager following the departure of Steve McClaren to England in summer 2006.
BORO'S most successful manager ever, Steve McClaren moved to Teesside after three seasons as Sir Alex Ferguson's right-hand man at Manchester United.
BORO'S Premiership future looked bleak when Terry Venables arrived as head coach alongside Bryan Robson at Christmas 2000.
DURHAM-BORN Robson began his career at West Bromwich Albion in 1974 before joining Manchester United in 1981 for a then record fee of £1.7m.
FORMER schoolteacher Lennie Lawrence never played league football but made his name as assistant manager at Plymouth Argyle and Lincoln City.
BORO legend Brian Clough paid a record £170,000 to bring Durham-born Todd from Sunderland to Derby in February 1971.
THE son of a Scottish Regimental Sergeant Major, the tough tackling wing-half began his career with Luton but really made his name at Aston Villa.
ONE of Boro's finest ever players, Maddren appeared in seven position for the club, although he will always be remembered and a wonderfully cultured centre-half.
