The mother of all battles is under way. YOUR help needed.

5 Feb

Brentford may be out of the FA Cup after being beaten by high flying Leicester City but we’re still fighting a battle on two fronts. Sure, there’s the Championship promotion race where the action continues on Saturday with the visit of Middlesbrough but there’s also the World Cup. Of programme covers, that is. And your help is needed as a titanic second round struggle is now ensuing.

We’ve covered this before but let’s cut to the chase. We’re in action. Now. Live, on Wednesday. The edition produced to mark the occasion of our 4000th game being drawn against the somewhat random nature of the infamous stripper featuring as cover art. Ahh, the 80s. 

Being blunt, we’re losing. As it stands. Your vote, every vote, IS needed. The ‘stripper’ was last season’s hot favourite before being beaten in the semis by eventual winner Boro’ and their iconic Ayresome Park artwork. Truly a thing of beauty and a worthy winner in a competition that, last time out, was devoid of the Bees.  

Now, Rovers are many pundits’ choice to go one better this time around. But Brentford can cause what may be deemed the mother of all upsets before the vote closes just after 8pm GMT.

With the Middlesbrough goalie already knocked out after a shock first round defeat, the field is slightly wider open. The link is below. With your help, we can do this…..

Come on. Why are you still reading? I mean, thanks but some things are more important. Get voting. Please. What a way to start Life at Lionel Road with a World Cup Winners ‘star’ adorning the programme cover.

Competition is going to be tough for whoever gets through. Could it be us? Somebody has to take the prize from now departed Middlesbrough  – why not Brentford?

The current holder has, sadly, been knocked out
