Abella out for up to 6 months
Boro have just confirmed that Damia Abella has done his Anteria Cruciate Ligaments and could be out for 6 months!!
Are people happy for Fredericks to be our number one with Nsue as cover or do you think we should enter the loan market for a new RB?
Boro V Brentford
(WLLWW) Middlesbrough V Brentford (LWWDW)
OLE OLE OLE OLE KIKE KIKEEEEE. Well 2 wins in a row, is this what it feels like to support Barcelona? On to my third matchday thread in a row too, sorry if your getting bored of me. Not really too much to discuss now that were good again
2 fantastic away wins in the space of 4 days have given us confidence and more importantly allowed us to climb the table coming into our first league game with Brentford in 27 years. Expecting a very different team and a very different performance from the last home game. Getting 3 points away at recently relegated Cardiff should give us the confidence we can beat any team in this league on our day. They didnt cause us too many problems but we defended well and took our chances when they came.
This will be a very different game though, Brentford will more than likely come for a point, it will be up to us to break them down and create enough chances to hopefully win the game. A win would almost certainly put us in the top six.
Last 5 Games
16/09 Cardiff 0-1 Boro
13/09 Huddersfield 1-2 Boro
30/08 Boro 0-1 Reading
23/08 Boro 2-3 Sheff Wed
19/08 Bolton 1-2 Boro
Brentford have had a good start to the season too with some really impressive results for a newly promoted team and sit just a few places behind Boro in the table. Not going to pretend I know that much about their squad but I imagine they are half decent
Last 5 Games
16/09 Brentford 0-3 Norwich
13/09 Brentford 3-2 Brighton
30/08 Rotherham 0-2 Brentford

View from the opposition
Who do you see as Boros danger man?
- Don't know any of them
- Kike x2
- Always rated Adomah and Bamford when I've seen them but probably Leadbitter.
- Bamford is bound to score against us after we tried to sign him.
No one seems to know much about our players, hopefully they will after saturday
Who is Brentfords danger man?
- They are all dangerous
- Would say we are a team rather than relying on star players but if pushed I would say Alan Judge.
- Moses Odubajo. Quite a few were talking about him. (Right sided midfielder)
- Andre Gray, Alex Pritchard, Moses Odubajo, Alan Judge, Jota, Dallas all contribute massively going forward
How do you see the game going?
- It'll be close either way but you're at home so 2-1 Boro
- Look to be two fairly evenly matched teams, so whatever the result, I expect us to be competitive.
- I'm fully expecting a 'big club' referee, just like Tuesday. Therefore you will win. Boro 3-2 Brentford
- If the ref does his job properly then I can see us winning. Middlesbrough 0-1 Brentford.
- Should be a good game. MFC 1 BFC 2
- I'll take a draw. 1-1
- You are in good form so expecting a tough game but we play some great football and have won our last two away games so wouldn't be surprised if we won. Sadly I think it will be a narrow Middlesbrough win
Looks like they will bring about 500 fans to the game, they are unhappy at paying £31 a ticket
With injuries and suspensions to deal with we will have to slightly change the team, thankfully we now seem to have 2 capable players in every position. Will we go with 2 up front at home or will we continue with the same system, would like to see us line up like this;
Blackman, Woodgate, Fredericks, Whitehead, Wildschut, Vossen, Bamford
Wouldnt want us to change the system that has suited us well the last few games, Tomlin looked pretty good when he came on and linked up with Kike better than Vossen did. We have options on the bench to change to 4-4-2 if we need a goal.
- What system should we play?
- Should Vossen start?
- Has ayala broken some sort of record being banned for five bookings this early?
- Usual lineups and score predictions
Enjoy the game
*Looks like there will be another live stream for the game, cheers BB84 for the link
Cup - Liverpool away tv
I need to plan what to do next week so it will obviously be based around the Liverpool game on Tuesday.
Does anyone know if it's on telly or will it probably just be an online stream?

Hi guys I am a hearts supporter currently organising a fundraiser for big hearts which are the community/charity side of the club.
We are trying to round up some ex hearts legends and we would like stampy to be there. One problem we cant seem to find any contact details for him.
I am asking if anyone out there knows what phil is up to these days and even better does anyone have any contact details for him??
Thanks for reading. Mark.
