Just 90 minutes from Wembley as Long mystery explained

9 May

And so the play offs begin with Middlesbrough taking the narrowest of leads from the first leg with a 2-1 victory over Brentford at Griffin Park last night. Pressing for the winner themselves at the end of an impressive second half, the Bees could feel especially hard done by after being stopped in their tracks by a late winner from Fulham loanee Fernando Amorebieta deep into Jota time.

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.

Boro' fans believe in their team and their,erm, farts???

    Very unlucky to lose and the defelcted winner was really tough to take given the added time was for all their time wasting. Boro are a good side, also very professional with countless fouls and stoppages. They will feel they’ve got our measure with 3 wins this season, but it’s the result in the 4th game that will matter – and we can do it! All bees fans need to make the effort to get up there and support Warbs and this great team.

      Exactly. Its all about game 4 and if Brentford win it then the very least we’ll have is extra time. And from there, who knows…..

    Totally agree, I think we are in with a great chance next Friday. Reading what a lot of the MIddlesbrough press and followers are writing, it is close to suggesting they only have to turn up to book a place at Wembley but I can’ t help feel there is a slight bit of whistling in the dark to the comments, wiling themselves to believe it. They were solid and ruthless last night but we were magnificent and it could have easily gone either way. In many ways we can’t lose next week whereas they have all the pressure of expectations on them and with 30,000+ nervy home fans watching, if we are still in it after half an hour I genuinely fancy our chances of what some ill informed may call an ‘upset’.
