I am also a big Boro fan. There is a very peculiar  link  and history bewteen myself and
Middlesbrough FC. I saw them playing at Ayresome Park in 1990, and the in the season
1996-1997 I happened to be working for the club as intepreter for Italian football players (Ravanelli
and Festa)! I lived and worked   in Teesside for five years (1996-2001) which helped  strenghtening
the love and affection I have for this football club which I will alsways follow and that will always
bring awesome memories of real good times to me.  UP THE BORO!!
