Riverside Chairman comes up with a bright idea!
Middlesbrough legend Juninho Paulista, who is held in high esteem around Teesside for his effervescent displays, is in continuing talks with chairman Steve Gibson over a return to the North East club.
The recently relegated outfit will be playing Championship football next season, but the return of Juninho – who is expected to be taking up an ambassadorial role with the club – could be enough to bring a smile back to the faces of Middlesbrough fans. (Goal.com)

I can imagine it now. The whistle is blown on Boro’s chances of avoiding the drop as they are defeated at Upton Park and Steve Gibson has a sudden burst of inspiration. He thinks to himself, ‘ermm well i know what the fans would love, Let’s get Juninho back!”. He is then wisely informed that the Brazilian international is actually now 36 years of age and unlikely to cut the mustard even in the Championship. ‘ah well lets just get him in as an ambassador or something?”.
Mr Gibson is a wise man, but this isn’t going to be the earth shattering news that the fans need to hear right now, surely it’s time the Middlesbrough Chairman just sacked Gareth Southgate and this would surely soften the gloom and doom the Boro fans are feeling?
