Nineteen years after leaving Middlesbrough as a player, Tony Mowbray returns to the northeast to take his seat on the touchline at the Riverside. The former West Bromwich Albion and Celtic manager replaces another former Celtic boss, wee Gordon Strachan, who resigned last week. Mowbray, who never should have left West Brom in the first place, had a disastrous season at Celtic last year, but comes to Middlesbrough with legendary status, the old Mogga who captained his boyhood club and played almost 350 games at the Boro. The task will be a tough one as Middlesbrough are twenty-second in the twenty-four team Championship at the moment, clear of only Crystal Palace (on goal difference) and Bristol City.
