Middlesbrough travel to Molineux today for our first Championship game of the season. Boro spent just over 40 million on new players and Wolves have spend a lot too, splashing out £15m on Neves from FC Porto even though on Skysports its "Undisclosed".
Both Middlesbrough and Wolves are under new management. Wolves sacked Paul Lambert as the last season ended and brought in Nunu Santo to replace him. Middlesbrough got rid of Steve Agnew and replaced him with Ex Leeds United manager Monk.
So this game kicks off at 15:00 with two £15m signings on the pitch, that's unheard of in the Championship but you have to spend money to get promoted these days. Steve Gibson has thrown the cash at Monk and he's gotten every player he wanted and we're still after one more defender to fill the No.5 position.

I'm going to push the boat out massively here and go for a 1-1 draw. Wolves will be up there at the top of the league with us, a win would obviously be fantastic for the first game but I know what happens to boro when we are favs to win the league, we fuck it up!! So i'll be happy if we don't lose today!
