The play offs begin – can we do it?

8 May

This is it. The chance to hit the really big time. After a season of ‘little’ Brentford and tinpot jibes, The Bees face Middlesbrough tonight knowing how close we are to the Premiership. Just three games (along with Ipswich Town or Norwich City) now stand in the way of our playing in the top tier of English football for the first time since 1947.

To read the rest of this article, season 2014/15 is now available to download onto Kindle (and other electronic reading device) in full. Containing additional material and even some (poor) editing, you can get it here for less than the cost of a Griffin Park matchday programme or Balti Pie.

Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, I need to make more space on the site for any follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further on.

    NIck I think the rise and rise of your team has been the real story of the Championship this season. Unfortunately your club’s fantastic progress has been overshadowed by the Bournemouth story. As a Boro supporter I am quite well used to the experience of following an unfashionable team myself. I don’t think anyone sensible in the Boro camp would dream of taking Brentford lightly. You will not get the advantage of our team arriving complacent and being turned over before they realise what they are dealing with. I expect Middlesbrough to take Brentford very seriously and approach this match in a ruthless and efficient manner.

    Basically this is a 2 legged cup tie where anything can happen, where the outcome might depend will depend fine margins, or dumb luck, such as a bottle top or a mistake by the ref. I think the most likely outcome will be a trip to Wembley for my team, but as a football romantic, if you make it instead, I for one will be rooting for Brentford.

    This time for a change, I will put romanticism aside and hope that cold logic dictates that the big bad bully wins.

    Hello SuperBees! Here’s a question: From which far larger and soon to be resurgent West London football club is Fernando Amorebieta, the scorer Boro’s winning goal tonight, on loan from? Calling Agent Amorebieta!

      “Far larger club” who might that be mate? I’d get used to us being around for a while yet if I were you.

      4-1 wasn’t it? Or 2-1? Thanks for the laughs
