Just what Boro need... another injury prone center back, and one emergency center forward.
UPDATE, from Yahoo! Sport:
Middlesbrough also confirmed the signing of Charlton Athletic midfielder Jason Euell.Euell will give Boro another option at striker or attacking middie.
If this had been done last week, after the Chelsea match, we'd be talking about how Boro were on the up and these moves would bolster their squad for a push up the table. But after the humiliating loss to Portsmouth it all seems underwhelming. Boro have good players, but have had good players for several years now. And over that period they have been wildly inconsistent. And nothing in the history of the players they have signed really looks to have addressed that.
