Still paying the penalty – is it time to move on?

21 Oct

As Brentford prepare for Tuesday’s game against Bristol City, I’ve still got two things niggling me from the weekend.

This doesn’t include the criticism of Uwe, which wasn’t great but understandable. It’s his job to pick a team that will win us the game. Given our recent run prior to that match, he can’t have expected an easy ride but I’m glad he proved his detractors wrong and found a balance that made us look like world-beaters after the substitutions kicked in.

To read the rest of this article, season 2013/14 is now available to download onto Kindle, in full. Containing previously unseen content, you can do so here for less than the cost of one matchday programme.

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.

    Yet more critism of fans rather than address the real problem that is the manager.Lets discuss a team with one of the biggest squads,budgets in the division. Along with the most suportive owner.Lets discuss this great win against a team that hasn’t won in 12 who are also having to play with 7 first team players out injured who we couldn’t make an impact on untill the man who was about to be subbed scored.Uwes comments in the press were embarrassing saying that he had to tell the players to applaud the fans when Farid praised the fans through twitter after the game and bigged himself up over the substitutions. Last season we finished where we deserved you always do the Hartlepool game was not a celebration at Trottas goal it was a lost opportunity due to the managers team selection against an already relegated side who we dropped 2 points to.I will be at Bristol tommorow night to cheer the team on to hopefully 3 points but if we lose don’t expect the fans to be singing “there’s only one Uwe Rosler as you might be disappointed.
