Nice Saturday; Super Sunday. Saunders territory?

28 Jul

It was a stunning weekend in the sunshine at Griffin Park, with Brentford running out 3-2 winners over OGC Nice before continuing the pre-season tradition of throwing open the doors of Griffin Park for the family day.

Supporters were certainly spoiled by a fine win, capped by home debut goals for both Andre Gray (with not much more than a minute on the clock) and Alex Pritchard whose brace included a fine free kick. The Tottenham loanee certainly had the fans talking afterwards although his effort does beg the question – what happens if a set piece is awarded with both him and Sam Saunders on the pitch at the same time?

To read the rest of this article, season 2014/15 is now available to download onto Kindle (and other electronic reading device) in full. Containing additional material and even some editing, you can get it here for less than the cost of a Griffin Park matchday programme or Balti Pie.

 Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, I need to make more space on the site for any follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further on.

    Good stuff. Did Bruzon Jnr make the team photo?

      Sadly not. But only because his lunch was calling. He’s a hungry boy with a big appetite.

      On the plus side, dad got a new away shirt!

    I still believe there will be Sam Saunders moments this season.

    Coincidentally Nick i had a look at the excellent Historical Football Kits site and had a peek at what Charlton may be wearing come August 9. I think I had a rocket ice lolly look like that kit when I was younger.

      Charlton’s kit is very much reminiscent of the ‘Zoom’ ice lolly, I would agree. Let’s hope we give them a good licking on Saturday week
