As Brentford and Wolves P-P, who were the winners and losers?

9 Feb

With Brentford’s game against Crawley and Wolves trip to Stevenage both ruined by the weather, the stage was set for Leyton Orient to go back to the top of League One yesterday.

Thankfully (really) Peterborough hadn’t read this particular script and their two goals in as many minutes at the death saw the O’s snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. With the top three sides now on level games, it means that Brentford remain in first place. Things are still too tight to call but I’d rather be two points ahead than two behind.

If The Bees emerged better for a weekend where they haven’t even had to get their boots dirty, who has woken up on Sunday wishing it had never happened?

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.

    Why do Brentford hate Wolves so much ??

      Morning Alex. No hate here at all – certainly not from my side .
      To be honest, I’m not sure why you’d suggest otherwise. Most of it is factual (I think I’ve been quite restrained on the banter front, given some of the inflammatory comments I’ve received and not printed).

      Ultimately, this is a Brentford FC blog and the likes of Leyton Orient and Wolves will, of course, get more mentions than other clubs – purely down to the good runs we are all on, along with our relative positions in the League One table.

      Looking forward to our match later this month. Win, lose or draw it is sure to be a cracking atmosphere and a full house.

      Cheers – and thanks again for reading / commenting

      We really do not hate anyone really! Certainly not Wolves. Indeed we respect them. What we do feel is that Brentford are actually a similar size club to Fulham and QPR, taking away their bank rolling, and as for Orient, this is some kind of a joke. Orient have struggled to get 4000 fans at games this season. looking forward to the game!

    As a Wolves fan with tickets for yesterdays postponed match I was as disappointed as the rest of us. Obviously we are experiencing severe weather, however in your article you suggesting that not everyone can afford rain covers. I would suggest that clubs cannot afford not to have them. Wolves had sold out their 1900 allocation. When the game finally goes ahead I would estimate that around 1200 fans will travel on a Tuesday night. This would represent a loss of income of over £10,000 + more for the smaller home support. Then you can add on the reprint cost of programs, loss of sales of food etc. How much are rain covers? £20K?. How many games have Crawley had to postpone this season? (four I think). The covers will last for years. They would pay for themselves pretty quickly.

    Having gone to watch Orient yesterday I can say this. Ground is almost not league 1 standard let alone championship. Orient were really average. Their goal was against the run of play and up to that point Peterborough would have won easily if this was a boxing match. Peterborough also were chaotic in defence and slightly bizarre set up. huge bloke called ” Little” on the right wing! a load of Peterborough fans left when Orient scored 20 mins before the end. The two goals were good ones and I can see them taking points from Wolves and Preston. We really should beat Orient!

    One of the great things about being a Wolves fan is that we are such a well supported club.

    One of the bad things about this is, due to maths, that means we also get quite a lot of idiots. I hate maths.

    For a more erudite take on all things Gold and Black, I recommend you swerve the twitterati and head to Wolves blog,

    I would wish you luck for the remainder of the season, but that would be disingenuous of me.

      Cheers – many thanks for your comments and I’ll check it out for sure.
      I’d wish you luck too but, likewise, I think we’d both know how hollow those sentiments were (at least, in regards to first place).
      Roll on next Saturday
