Two years ago this would have been news

Mendieta out until next season
Gaizka Mendieta, Middlesbrough's Spanish midfielder, will miss the rest of the season after breaking a bone in his foot in training.
I would certainly have been of interest to this blog. But after missing out on most of last year, and a sizeable chunk of this year, through injury; with Boro anonymous in the league as they chase UEFA and FA Cup dreams; and with Rochemback a similar player in all but hairstyle, it hardly seems to matter.

Add him to the distinguished list of once productive fantasy Boro players that have moved on to oblivion (or Scotland) - Juninho, Maccarone, Geremi, Greening....
