Look at 12 of Middlesbroughs best players and also facts about each player. There is also a picture of the BT Cellnet Riverside Stadium which is Middlesbroughs Official Stadium

This is The BT Cellnet Riverside Stadium
This stadium was built in only 32 weeks, the BT Cellnet Riverside Stadium was the first stadium designed and constructed to comply with the Taylor Report. Opened on August 26 1995, the capacity is 35,100.

The stadium represents a proud and bold statement of Middlesbrough Football Club's progressive thinking as well as its vision for the future.

Along with the Transporter and Newport bridges, the BT Cellnet Riverside Stadium has become one of the landmarks of the Middlesbrough skyline, towering over the Tees, east of the city centre.


Long before work began on the magnificent new 30,000 capacity stadium, Boro officials had been considering their options. Hemmed in by terraced housing, it was obvious that the only way to expand Ayresome Park was by building upwards, but the fact was that to have any hope of getting planning permission, they would have to limit themselves to a 20,000 capacity.

Alen Boksic.
RATED one of the best six strikers in the world, Boksic started his career with Hadjuk Split and a haul of 27 goals in his first season alerted the world's top clubs.

French side Cannes moved quickest to sign him, but he only played once in that next season and ended it by moving down the coast to glamourous Marseille.

There the Croatian turned the heat back on, scoring 26 goals in 49 games. This made Lazio's ears prick up and in 1994 his name appeared on the back pages in Rome next to the figure £8m.

He stayed there for two-and-a-half seasons, during which time Paul Gascoigne left - but not before the pair had built a friendship which the Croatian called on again when considering his move to Teesside.

After 67 appearances produced 17 goals, Boksic moved to Turin and Italy's serial champions, Juventus. Unfortunately, despite a plethora of talented front men, Juve suffered a disappointing season and the Croatian scuttled back to Lazio in time for the 97-98 season.

A three-year stint back in Rome saw the club's profile begin its return to former glories. Most recently Boksic enjoyed a run in the Champions League, which included knocking Chelsea out at Stamford Bridge.

This run of form, as well as his goals for Croatia - most recently against Austria in April - convinced Bryan Robson that Middlesbrough should be Boksic's next stop.

Interestingly, the Boro boss had tried to tempt Boksic to the Riverside back in 1996, when an £8m price tag was mentioned.

By the time he did sign this had dropped to a bargain £2.5m and Boksic quickly set about proving he was worth the wait, winning the club's Player of the Year award in his first season on Teesside.

Colin Cooper
COLIN was a full-back in his first spell at Middlesbrough under Bruce Rioch.

His form was excellent as Boro moved from the old third division up to the top flight and he won under-21 caps alongside team mate Stuart Ripley.

In 1991 he moved to rejoin Rioch at Millwall and was barracked on his debut for them - against Boro at Ayresome Park.

While at Millwall, Colin was converted to centre-back and his reputation and value greatly increased.

He was linked with several top clubs before making a £1.7m move to Nottingham Forest.

During his time at the City Ground he won two full England caps and helped Forest pip Boro to the First Division title.

Colin returned to Teesside in August 1998 and has established himself as a regular in the centre of Boro's defence.

Curtis Fleming.
IRISH international Curtis celebrated his testimonial season in 2000-2001 after ten years of loyal service at the Riverside.

Although a Curtis Fleming goal is a very rare sight indeed, he is an eager contributor to Boro's attacks down the right wing.

Signed for £50,000 in 1991 from St Patrick's Athletic, for whom he played in the European and UEFA Cups, Curtis broke into the first team under Lennie Lawrence, and his hard-tackling right back performances earned him the Supporters Club Player of the Year Award in 1993-94.

He was then moved to left-back to accommodate Neil Cox, switching back to the right when Cox left to join Bolton.

Curtis appeared in both the FA and League Cup finals of 1997, and he has won ten full international caps for the Republic of Ireland.

His testimonial season was crowned with a 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao at the BT Cellnet Riverside Stadium, a game attended by more than 9,000 grateful fans.

Gianluca Festa
ONE of Boro's most successful forays into the European transfer market brought Gianluca to the Riverside in January 1997.

Although he was unable to help the club stave off relegation, he did not follow countryman Ravanelli's example and instead remained loyal to Middlesbrough.

On Teesside he has earned a reputation as a formidable and talented centre-back.

A Sardinian, Gianluca captained the military national team during his national service and first made an impact for his hometown club, Cagliari.

He then moved to Inter Milan, who straight away loaned him out to Roma.

When he finally got his chance at the San Siro, his team mates included Paul Ince and Christian Ziege.

Gianluca's passionate and committed displays have made him a firm favourite, and he was the Supporters Club Player of the Year in 1997-98.
Hamilton Ricard
THE TALL, powerfully-built striker found Premiership football difficult at first and was much maligned early in his spell at Boro for frequently missing goalscoring opportunities.

Once he started to find the net, however, his confidence and popularity soared and he finished his first full season as both top scorer and joint Player of the Year.

He topped the goal charts once again the following season and has proved a real handful for Premiership defences, although he found the going a little tougher after the arrival of Alen Boksic.

Hamilton signed for £2m from Deportivo Cali and is a Colombian international, featuring in their 1998 World Cup campaign.

Mark Schwarzer
MARK won a championship with Marconi in Australia, where Christian Vieri was a team mate, beginning a European career with Dynamo Dresden and then Kaiserslautern.

Chris Kamara signed Mark for Bradford City in November 1996 and just four months later the big keeper moved to Boro in time to make an impressive debut in the Coca-Cola Cup semi-final at Stockport.

A broken leg forced him out of action after only a handful of games but on his return he quickly established himself as a commanding figure at the back and a terrific shot-stopper.

Mark is an Australian international, although he grew tired of playing understudy Mark Bosnich and made himself unavailable to the Socceroos to concentrate on his Boro career.

Recently, however, he has decided to re-enter the international arena and has become first choice for his country in recent months, starring in their summer Confederations Cup campaign.

He is widely regarded as one of the very best keepers in the Premiership.
Noel Whelan
NOEL has earned the respect and admiration of both sets of fans at his previous clubs through a willingness to work and his occasional bursts of breathtaking skill.

Born and bred in Leeds, he came up through the ranks at the club and looked set to be a permanent fixture at Elland Road until his surprise move to Coventry City for £2m.

Although he has scored several spectacular goals while playing up front, Noel is equally comfortable in midfield and will give Bryan Robson options on both flanks.

Having gained two caps at under-21 level for England, this tough but stylish player will be looking to get a lengthy run in the Boro first team and push for further international honours.

Sky Blues fans will be immensely disappointed that a new deal could not be agreed to keep him at Highfield Road, but Coventry's loss looks most definitely to be Boro's gain.

Paul Ince
THE "Guv'nor" was snapped up in a £1m bargain deal from Liverpool, after being told he no longer figured in Gerard Houllier's plans.

His authoritative performances during his first season at the Riverside earned him a recall to the England team as a replacement for the injured David Batty, and Ince featured in all three of England's Euro 2000 games.

A tough, ball-winning midfielder, Ince began his career at West Ham but it was at Manchester United that he established himself as one of the country's top players.

At Old Trafford he formed a potent partnership with Bryan Robson as United dominated the domestic scene.

Paul won Premiership, Cup and Cup Winners' Cup medals, as well as his first England caps, during his spell with Manchester United, and then moved on, first to Inter Milan, then Liverpool.

Combative, aggressive and still one of the best midfielders in the country, Paul was made Boro captain after Andy Townsend's departure.

He retained the skipper's armband after the arrival of England colleague Gareth Southgate in the close-season.
Paul Okon
PAUL Michael Okon is the captain of the Australian national side and arrived in summer 2000 on a Bosman free transfer from Fiorentina.

Bryan Robson fought off stiff competition from Ajax, Lazio and Anderlecht to sign the cultured player, who can operate in the centre of defence or midfield.

Dubbed 'Mr Cosmopolitan', Okon started his career at Sydney Marconi but after just two seasons he signed for Belgian side Brugges.

Here he started on his outstanding record of success, winning the Belgian Player of the Year award before the lure of the Lira lead him to Lazio.

Serie A caused him 'no worries' as he was rated Lazio's best player in his debut season in Italy.

Three years later he joined Fiorentina where he played in a world class line up including Batistuta, Toldo and Rui Costa.

In total he has won six trophies in Europe and is determined to continue his winning streak at the Riverside. His chances were somewhat hampered by a broken foot which caused him to miss the Olympic Games in his hometown, Sydney.

He played a starring role in helping Boro avoid relegation after Terry Venables' arrival as head coach last season.

Robbie Mustoe
THE club's longest serving player, Robbie enjoyed a well-deserved testimonial in the 1999-2000 season.

He was originally signed for £375,000 from Oxford United in 1990 and made his debut alongside John Wark in a goalless home draw against West Ham.

By the time Bryan Robson arrived, Robbie was partnering Jamie Pollock in midfield and initially he lost his place to the new player-manager.

Robson quickly realised Robbie's value, however, and gave him the job of marshalling the Boro engine room.

Robbie has been a reliable figure through all the ups and down of the 90s and played in all three of the club's Wembley finals.

His box-to-box commitment has made him a hit with the fans and he shared the Player of the Year award with Hamilton Ricard in 1999.

He has now clocked up more than 300 appearances and remains an important figure in the plans of manager Steve McClaren.
Steve Vickers
WHO said Boro fans were unforgiving?

Bishop Auckland's own Steve Vickers was offered YTS terms at Ayresome Park but turned them down and instead ended up at Tranmere Rovers, for whom he scored a memorable goal to dump Boro out of the 1990 League Cup.

And then, horror of horrors, he's back in the Ayresome Park home changing room.

What do the Boro fans do? Vote him Player Of The Year.

And the respect doesn't stop there. In 1994, only a season into his contract at Middlesbrough, Vickers was the subject of a £500,000 offer from Ipswich that new manager Bryan Robson described as "an insult - not enough for his right leg".

Steve Vickers has made well over 600 appearances in his career and after turning down a move to Crystal Palace early in the 2001-2002 season looks set to extend that record with Boro.
Ugo Ehiogu
UGO JOINED Boro from Aston Villa on November 20 2000. The 6ft 2in defender is Boro’s record signing, costing a cool £8m.

A strong and pacy defender who's never afraid to commit to a challenge, Ehiogu was born in Hackney in 1972 and joined his first club West Brom in 1989. Two years later Ron Atkinson paid a bargain £40,000 for his services and took him to Aston Villa.

He made over 250 appearances in the claret and blue of Villa before finally getting the transfer to Boro that he'd wanted earlier this year.

He was a League Cup winner under Big Ron at Villa and two years later he received his one and only England cap when Terry Venables called him in to the squad for the tour of China in 1996.

He was recalled to the squad after his move to Boro and has won further caps under new coach Sven Goran Eriksson, scoring for his country in a 3-0 win over Spain back at his old Villa Park hunting ground.
