    "Boro have confirmed they have applied to represent the Barclays Premiership in next season's Intertoto Cup should they be unsuccessful in their bid to qualify for the UEFA Cup for a third successive season," a club spokesman said.

    Under new rules, applicants from the Premiership must finish in one of the four places immediately below the clubs qualifying for the Champions League and UEFA Cup, with the highest getting the nod.

    • Well seems like a wise move to me mate seeing as though it would take a miracle to get into a UEFA cup spot from our current position. All in all a good move by our management, ensuring that Teesiders will have need of a passport long after their North East rivals. Hush now, dont you cry, maybe one day you will get in too..... via the fair play rule perhaps.
