Middlesbrough nightmare as flops sleepwalk to Prem relegation

The excitement of a dream return to the Premier League for Middlesbrough after a seven-year absence soon turned into a nightmare, as Boro limply sleepwalked into relegation.

Rating out of 10: 3

Highlight

Broadly speaking, the return of top flight football and some of the world's best players to the Riverside was a welcome sight for the Teesside faithful.

The opportunity to see their side mix it with the elite was a tantalising prospect, even if it turned sour quite quickly. In truth, Boro were never...

Boro crumble under Liverpool pressure in Premier League swan song

A spirited Middlesbrough side eventually crumbled in the face of relentless waves of unerring pressure from Liverpool, who ran out 3-0 winners and confirmed the return of Champions League football to Anfield next season. Boro racked up their 20th defeat of a deflating and depressing season and will be grateful they can now close this chapter of their history and look to move on to mounting another promotion push from the Championship.

Boro can take positive step forward by putting a dent in Liverpool's future

When Martin Atkinson puts the whistle to his lips for the final time this season on Sunday, there will be few Middlesbrough fans sorry to see the curtains fall on their Premier League campaign. With just a paltry five wins and 27 goals to show for their 37 game in the top flight so far, the thoughts of the faithful have long since moved on to how a promotion push can be mounted next term.

Developments at the brighter end of the table, however, have offered Boro a final chance to make an impact....

Tommy McNamara's brave header in the second half earned NYCFC a point in a gritty draw with FC Dallas.

Time is running out to catch the eye of United States national team coach Bruce Arena ahead of June's World Cup qualifiers. Here, we lay out who did and did not impress the big boss.

Heating up

Kellyn Acosta, MF, FC Dallas (MLS)

Why he's here: Acosta, 21, had another good performance for FC Dallas with a goal in the 1-1 draw versus New York City FC. The midfielder was also a threat in delivering set pieces.

What this means: The injury to Jermaine Jones means that Arena will need to fill the LA Galaxy...

Hull, Middlesbrough and Sunderland down but will they bounce back?

There will be no final day drama in the Premier League relegation zone this season. Hull City's 4-0 loss at Crystal Palace on Sunday confirmed they would be joining Middlesbrough and Sunderland in next season's Championship.

Here's a look at how each club failed this season and what happens next ...

Hull City

What went wrong?

Hull began the season as if relegation was a certainty, with just 13 first team players for interim manager Mike Phelan to call on, following Steve Bruce's resignation in July.

Patrick Bamford goal a bright spot in Middlesbrough's dark home finale

Middlesbrough's final home game of the season ended in another depressing defeat as Southampton sauntered through an easy afternoon's work. The atmosphere at the Riverside turned decidedly toxic at 2-0 -- with local lad Stewart Downing a particular focus of the fans' fury. Patrick Bamford gave some pride to the occasion with his first goal back at the club when he headed home an impressive corner by Viktor Fischer.
