In Aitor Karanka's first full season at the helm, Boro emerged as one of the must-watch teams in the Championship - striding towards the top end of the table with a swagger while also putting some of the nation's heavyweights to the sword in the cup competitions.

Though our dreams of a top flight return were halted on the biggest stage by Norwich City, team and fans had come together to enjoy a scintillating season.

And it made Boro's achievement of promotion a year down the line all the sweeter.
