The Gods were looking down on us - now I'm off to have a few glasses of water to celebrate! And the car is safely docked.
There will be changes this week because of the amount of games.
Geoff works hard, looks very sharp and he has scored some important goals for us
The way he's done his job is very good. This is the reward for that and I'm delighted he's signed.
At some stage I'll maybe have to do something about it because it is very difficult to keep six players happy
But I'll probably only look at that in January. It'd have to be a permanent situation if I make any decision.
When you have got a bench like that you know you have got a lot of pace and a lot of goals, so when they start getting sharper and match-fit we will have a bigger goal threat this year
Jonathan's been in the squad before when Steve McLaren had him
Judge us after eight games.
I'll do it again.
A lot of people, some of them close to me as well, have said that I sacrificed myself by doing what I did in bringing Terry on board. I didn't see it that way.
I was determined to get it right on the pitch. Then, if I had to leave at the end of the season, so be it. I never felt threatened or isolated by the arrangement. We worked together and it worked out.
In the end, a small section of the crowd, maybe 2,000 to 3,000, turned against me. And that was it. Inside the club they know your best intentions, but the minority shout louder than the rest.
I had to make a change. It was no slight on my staff either. We'd all been at Boro for seven years. But certain players had got too familiar with the set-up. I had to turn it round. Terry was the one man I could think of to do it. So I went for him.
I've left Boro in the Premiership, which was always what I wanted to do. Actually that's not quite true. I took them to three cup finals, where they'd never been before. But I had set my eyes on being the first manager in their history to deliver a major trophy.
