Some people are on the pitch, again

27 Mar

The big story from last night’s Scottish football (surely, an oxymoron if ever there was one) saw Brentford loanee Farid El Alagui spend the evening as an unused substitute for Dundee United. In other news, Celtic won the title.

Reading the reports and looking at the pictures  you’d think Celtic had won the FA Cup, the way their fans celebrated. Mind you, they’ve got form at this sort of thing, as Brentford fans may well remember from the pre-season ‘home’ friendly at Griffin Park.

To lose once in thirty league games at any level is an impressive feat but, ultimately, they are the thoroughbred in a one horse race. All it really means is that this season’s thoroughbred has the chance to become next season’s seaside donkey in the Champion’s League.

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.

    I may be wrong, but I dont think that Farid or Shay will be able to play for the Bees again this season as they are on loan with clubs in a ‘foreign’ country. I dont think they can come back to play in England until the transfer window reopens. But then again I may be assuming a lot of rubbish there

      Thanks. The loan rules are certainly complex so I bow down to your superior knowledge, Mr Q.
      Even Farid’s paperwork seemed to take an eternity to process.
      If I recall correctly, Dundee United were touting him as ‘their player’ about a day before we had official confirmation of completion on our own website.
