    I see you've sussed the obnoxious , English hating sweat from Kelbrook Ted. Why this moron is living in a country where he hates the people is beyond me, then again he supports Bunley and that often explains the ridiculous.
    I often laugh at his and the other Dingoids mental frothings, which are often followed by an inevitable Tetley accusations and find satisfaction that he (Tetley) got right under their unwashed skins.....
    Long live Tetley
    To be fair to poor old Gudari, he is both scotch and a Bonleh fan, which means he's got a double dose of bitterness and resentment coarsing through his deep fried food addled veins.

    The poor wee jobby cannae help it.

    Love the way he's still carrying the torch for tetley though. It's kinda cute."

FULL-TIME: Burnley 0 Middlesbrough 2

STAN THE MAN Junior Stanislas on his debut

STAN THE MAN Junior Stanislas on his debut

First published in Burnley FC match reports

BURNLEY suffered their first home defeat of the season, as Middlesbrough continued their unbeaten start to the 2011/12 campaign.

The Clarets trailed the first half to Nicky Bailey's 10th minute opener.

The former Charlton midfielder's shot appeared to find the bottom corner in slow motion as the home side switched off following an injury to Brian Easton.

The left back went down clutching his head after trying to clear the ball out of the box.

But play continued and Bailey's mis-hit volley bobbled past Brian Jensen.

The Clarets had started well from the kick-off but struggled to get back into the game after that as Boro got men behind the ball to protect their early lead.

And there was more of the same in the second half when Joe Bennett turned in the rebound when Jensen parried Scott McDonald's initial shot.

David Edgar went close from a couple of corners and Chris McCann brought a good save from Carl Ikeme after being set up by new signing Junior Stanislas, who looked to make an instant impact after making his debut from the bench seven minutes into the second half.
