4-1 defeat? Move along, nothing to see here.

27 Apr

Have you bothered to watch the highlights (and I use the phrase in the loosest sense) this morning of Brentford succumbing 4-1 to Colchester United? Whether it was simply a case of an already promoted team having mentally ‘switched off’ (indeed, Wolves also conceded a late o.g. to be held at Coventry, in Northampton) or the Bees being outplayed by a team staring down the barrel of relegation, Warbs was making no excuses afterwards.

It was, what he later told the BBC, our “Worst performance of the season….by a long shot”.

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.

    Not the season’s best performance for us against Coventry either. Lets say that both teams were having a post promotion hangover

      A pair of shockers, best forgotten. It’s all about our captain’s 500th and then next season from here

    It looks like a case of “let’s help the local midlands team stay in Division 1”, if that’s the case then it will cushion the sadness I am feeling today after such a limp performance against a weakened Coventy side (spelt correctly according to the Sky Blues programme).
    Why were we resting 4 players when the season is over and nothing of real importance to play for.?
    But, we all know that sort of thing just does not happen in football, so let’s get on with it. We just pay a fortune to get there, get in and watch a shocking display, we’re only fans, so what do we matter.

    Rant over……..

    See you next year.

    As for the Bees, you cant blame our regular keeper, because according to the Football League Show we had someone called Mark Button in goal for us. I have to say I missed that piece of transfer news
