* Middlesbrough called off their Premier League game at Blackburn without permission the day before the scheduled date of Saturday 21st December 1996. They claimed that they were unable to field a competitive team as they had 23 players unavailable because of injury, illness or suspension. Blackburn argued that they should have been awarded the points but the match was ordered to be played and Middlesbrough suffered a 3 point deduction and a 50,000 fine. The loss of the points saw them relegated - postponed matches.

** Middlesbrough were drawn away to Conference side Hednesford Town in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup but the venue was switched to the Riverside Stadium.

+ Middlesbrough's Coca Cola Cup (League Cup) final against Leicester was played at Wembley and the final replay at Hillsborough, Sheffield Wednesday FC.

++ Middlesbrough's FA Cup semi-final against Chesterfield was played at Old Trafford, Manchester United FC, and the replay at Hillsborough, Sheffield Wednesday FC.
