Following a poor run of form of 2 wins in 12 games in the 2013–14 campaign, on 21 October 2013, nearly three years after his arrival, Tony Mowbray left the club with immediate effect.

Gibson, 23, was a cornerstone of Boro’s Championship promotion campaign last season, and Allardyce is understood to be seriously considering calling him into his squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia next month.

Middlesbrough Football Club in the Community (MFCIC) was founded in 1995 by club chairman Steve Gibson and is one of the largest community-based football schemes in the United Kingdom. It is run separately from the football club but receives support from both the club in terms of providing players, staff, stadium facilities and PR in the matchday programme and other publications, as well as support from other local organisations.
It was announced in December 2007 that Middlesbrough football club had carried out more community work during 2006–07 than any other Premier League club, rising from second place the previous year, with the club making 318 appearances – almost twice the Premier League average of 162. They were in the top two for community appearances again in 2007–08, with 374 – a 17% increase on the previous season.
It is all another indirect consequence of new Premier League broadcast deals that are globally worth a staggering £8.3 billion over the next three years.

With the proceeds of those television rights spread relatively equally across the 20 clubs, 17 were already among the 30 richest in the world even before this new deal.
