I'm normally quite a pessimist when it comes to predicting how we'll do, but we seem to be scoring goals from midfield and Abraham is due to score. We could easily have had 4 against a good Forest side.

4-2 Villa.

Daniel Ayala will be available for Middlesbrough's trip to Aston Villa this weekend after his red card against Preston was successfully overturned.

The Spanish centre-back was shown a straight red card by referee Keith Stroud during Boro's 2-1 defeat by the Lilywhites on Wednesday.

Boro quickly appealed Ayala's 'wrongful dismissal' following the defender's tackle on Preston's Brandon Barker.

The decision would have ruled Ayala out of the Championship fixtures against Aston Villa, Norwich, Bristol City.

The FA issued the following statement regarding their decision: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, Daniel Ayala will be available for Middlesbrough’s next three matches.

“The defender was sent off for serious foul play during the game against Preston North End on Wednesday [13/03/2019] but a claim of wrongful dismissal was subsequently upheld.”

Both Boro boss Tony Pulis and Preston manager Alex Neil felt Stroud made the wrong decision by sending Ayala off at a key moment in the match.
Fucking hell.  He took off from 6 ft out, was at high speed and completely out of control, missed the ball with his leading foot and scissored the player down in what could easily have been a leg breaker and he gets off?

"The FA have today charged Aston Villa with failing to control their fans after several expressed mild dismay at Middlesbrough player Ayala having his red card rescinded."

Social media posts regarding Tony Pulis being a skidmark on the Championship due to his perceived anti football  approach to games and the fact he is too old to wear a baseball cap are also being investigated.

I  presume he'll represent his own defence.  Who better?

I bet if I could be arsed to check the Boro sites they’d be hoping for a draw at best.

And they’d be right.

Win this, few other results go our way and we're right in the mix, Villa 2 Boro 0, massive game for us now, as every game is, but if we can keep chalking up the wins then the huge enormous Leeds Norwich end of season games could already be tied up.

Here we go, ASTON VILLA

To be fair to them there's some good humour there and a lack of twatishness.

Their absolutely certainty we are going to beat them is not at all reassuring...

Blimey the Pulis effect has certainly gripped their supporters.
Judging by a quick read he's putting them through hell at the moment.

Years of mediocrity and despair has worn them down, sounds familiar.
