And more talent arriving fast: Middlesbrough won the Second Division and promotion to the first. 15 points ahead of the second placed Luton Town! Mind, those were still old days – 2 points for a win, one for a tie. 15 points difference in English championship? Middlesbrough would not be an ordinary team – they would be another pleasant surprise soon! Remember QPR the year before? Already finishing a great season among the best! Middlesbrough would be similar at worse.
Yes, there is greatness… of a singular kind: Graeme Souness. Nobody knew him yet. However, when everybody knew him, Souness was Liverpool player. As for Middlesbrough… good for them winning Second Division.
