hull have done very well since coming up, and it's all down to good tactics and a few good players here and there, like daniel cousin and kamil zayatte. i emphasise "few". i believe that at the end of the day, the quality of players in the squad will decide matches more than good management and tactics. for all the knocking of the galacticos of real madrid, they did deliver at times, simply because their players were too good. middlesbrough have a very good squad, and should have no problems whatsoever dealing with what hull city can throw at them. however, they are inconsistent, and that's the only thing bad about boro. i still think they'll at least get a draw here.
Eddy's prediction: $5 on middlesbrough +0/0.5 @ 1.82 = $9.10
