Not much hope for this one, we haven't won away at Middlesbrough since the 1950's.

Middlesbrough 2-0 Wolves

(Shouldn't it be Bro not Boro?)

Classy Middlesbrough side plays slightly struggling, youthful but dysfunctional Wolves outfit?
Or youthful, ambitious, largely unknown Middlesbrough side plays youthful, ambitious largely unknown Wolves side?

Surely each team will make 5 or 6 changes from last weekend. For Wolves line up possibly something like:
Ikeme
Doherty -- Ebanks-Landell -- Hause -- Rowe
McDonald -- Saville
van la Parra -- Price -- Enobakhare
ALF​

Subs (like you really want to know the subs for a 3rd round League Cup match between two Championship sides): Martinez, Iorfa, Golbourne, Bancessi, Henry, Afobe, Graham.

Score 3-2 Bro

Got the Middlesbrough score right. But apparently we looked woeful. From missing the play-offs by a whisker last season, we look destined to struggle this season. Jackett is starting to become irritating now....talking up the opposition after the game. Increasingly the team and clib look completely out of their depth. This is starting to look and feel a lot like three seasons ago......

This. Exactly.

After each game all I see is this positivity crap. We lost to Bolton, they scored 2 goals in 45 minutes against us whilst only scoring 1 in 7 games before playing us. He praises the opposition and also says we played 'well'. Same tonight, all he does is praise Middlesbrough.

I'm starting to lose a lot of faith in his methods. Selling Richard Stearman was a huge call for him to make, and one I think he will soon come to regret.

I think we are going to bitterly agree with each other on this.
Stearman was a loss and I think it is significant KJ said the club was naive defensively. He is annoying me with this kind of bullshit but at the same time I sense he is disenchanted with the club and may walk soon. I think he is frustrated with the progress of contractual talks and the inability, repeatedly, to get targets in last summer. I just don't know whether I'm on Jackett's side or the club's side in this.
