Let’s face it. We won’t remember Teddy Sheringham‘s time in charge of Boro’ during the 2015-6 season fondly. If, that is, we remember it at all. The ex-Spurs and Manchester United striker was a left-field choice of gaffer; not least after Graham Westley had taken us to the League Two playoffs.
In came Tezza Shezza to replace G-Wezzle all the same, and we had to hope it would be a success. In hindsight, we know now that it was not. A combination of player recruitment and results (both poor) had Boro’ on the back foot for the first half of the campaign and we were in a pickle.
Six months in, Sheringham out.
His first team coach and familiar face Darren Sarll stepped into the breach. His first task? To arrest the slide and reverse our fortunes. This he did; the relegation dogfight looming in our rear view mirror becoming smaller and smaller. Not that small, however. It still had the menacing look of a BMW coming up the fast lane of the A1(M).
The cups? Yeah, pretty dismal again.
