Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson says it's a constant battle keeping the club in the Premiership.
Speaking to members of Boro's supporters' club at the Riverside Stadium earlier this week, he said: "To keep this football club in the Premier League for the last 10 years or so has been a tremendous achievement.
"I would hope that the next 10 years are better than the last 10.
"But I am a realist - we are not going to win the Premier League and we are not going to win the Champions League.
"We are David taking on Goliath."
