Middlesbrough face a difficult trip to high flying Arsenal and MSS have all your prematch plans.
Those lucky MSS Members who got tickets are meeting in The Worlds End in Finsbury Park, just a few stops from Kings Cross (Victoria and Piccadilly lines) and a short walk from the ground.
Another option is Drayton Park, a recommended “away fans pub”, also close to the Emirates. The nearest tube stop is Arsenal on the Piccadilly line
Fans should allow plenty of travelling time to allow for the large crowds at the stadium.
Boro’s last trip to the Emirates was an ill-fated FA Cup tie in February 2015 when the Gunners continued to win the trophy. The Teessider’s last league win at Arsenal was in April 2001, thanks to two own goals and Hamilton Ricard.
Arsenal have been in great form recently, including a 6-0 hammering of Bulgarian champions Ludogorets.
Will Boro have enough? In Aitor we trust.
The Premier League is back and Boro are in action against Watford.
MSS have booked the big screen at Walkabout Temple (Temple Place, London WC2R 2PH) to screen the game.
MSS Members are eligible for drinks and food discounts with their MSS Loyalty Card.
More MSS loyalty cards will be available on the day if you’ve not picked up yours yet.

Please remember ID – the venue’s license is very strict and implemented by Westminster Council.
After the recent success of our boats, MSS has decided Boro fans deserve to arrive to our maiden visit to the Olympic Stadium in style. We have booked the Elizabethan river cruise, a 1890’s replica paddle steamer, for Boro’s fixture with West Ham United on Saturday the 1st of October.
The Boat will be open from 11:00am and will be departing from Westminster Pier (details) at 11:15am (prompt) so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get there. We will then set sail up and down the River Thames, taking in all its glorious sights and monuments, before finally docking at North Greenwich at around 1:30pm.
North Greenwich pier is a short walk to North Greenwich tube station on the Jubilee line, a 9-minute journey to Stratford station (nearest tube stop for the Olympic stadium).
We want the boat to be a wall of colour of noise so please bring your flags, banners and singing voices. The boat has a cash bar (please bring cash for a prompt service) serving a selection of drinks but bringing your own alcohol onboard is prohibited.
Tickets for the boat are priced at £15 (exc. fees) and are on sale now. Ticket costs go towards ensuring MSS can continue to run events like this in the future.
We’ve launched a fortnightly podcast discussing all things Boro!
The pod stars Adam Garnsey, Graham Kirby, Scott Perkins and James Howell, plus the occasional super sub, and is put together by technical wizard producer-and-editor Kieron Banerj. Our podcast aims to bring the latest punditry and pessimism from Middlesbrough Supporters South.

It’s Middlesbrough’s first away game in London this season and it is one a lot of us are familiar with in recent years back at Craven Cottage in the EFL Cup.
Join the MSS and a bunch of fellow Boro fans in The Temperance for drinks pre-match before the lovely 15 minute walk to the ground through Bishop’s Park. No doubt there will be a few people sticking around for a few post-match beers around this area.

Following on from the success of their first London event in June, ParmStar will be back at the Fourpure Brewery in Bermondsey this Friday & Saturday for #Parmogeddon II.
Just like last time, there will be a limited number of whole parmos on the menu, as well as snack parmos, parmo burgers and Aussie parmas. They’ll be serving from 5-8 on Friday and 12-7 (or sell-out) on Saturday. If you’re planning on ordering a whole parmo, try to get there early on Friday or Saturday.
ParmStar use quality English chicken and serve pub-style parmos from their mobile gazebo. They prepare everything from scratch, apart from the freshly baked buns. Come down to taste a proper parmo and choose from a huge selection of Fourpure beers to help wash it down.

After hundreds of votes were cast, the midfield enforcer Adam Clayton was crowned MSS Player of the Year for 2015/16 season.
Adam Clayton was a hit with MSS Members after turning in performance after performance for Boro during the 2015/16 season. Adam claimed a whopping 66% of the vote from members and was delighted to be presented with the trophy in preseason.
“Obviously it’s a really nice feeling to get praise from the stands and to win an award,” he told MFC.co.uk.
“I can’t wait to get it home and show the missus and the family. Of course, they’re the ones that watch every week and if you get their appreciation then you must be doing something right.”
Adam wants to carry on the good feeling into Boro’s return to the Premier League.
“If the people who are paying to come and watch are voting for you then things are good. It’s a really nice feeling, I’m getting praise from each stand so far and that’s really good so I just want to keep going.”
