It’s not often I get a chance to "big up" Middlesbrough, but here we go:
Middlesbrough are sitting pretty at the top of the Championship table. 2 wins and a draw out of 3 three matches played.
They also won their cup match (admittedly on penalties, but they all count – remember, they were 1-0 down at one point).
I have NO bet on Middlesbrough’s eventual position this year. I think my bets on them to win in the past have acted as a curse.
