The 3 key questions after Bees beat Crystal Palace and Wigan Athletic come sniffing.

3 Aug

Brentford rounded off pre-season with a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace. The highlight clearly our winning goal as Moses parted the Palace defence like the Red (or should that be Yellow) Sea? The lowlight being a no-show from Adam Forshaw after Wigan Athletic had made another “unsettling” bid for the League One player of the year.

Three key questions come out of Saturday for me.

Adam Forshaw. Whilst its probably not right we start here, given the overall team performance, it is the ‘hot topic’. So just how worried should we be by Wigan’s approach?

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 (poor) 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 along.

    Justread your chairman is fuming about our so called interest in Adam Forshaw. Nothing reported up here – the only news is coming from down south to be honest. We make a bid, you reject it – welcome to the real world.

      Thanks for the comment.

      I can’t imagine any club chairman being happy about their former manager making two (reportedly) ‘comedy’ bids for any key player – let alone one who was voted as the best in the division for the last campaign. To suggest they wouldn’t react to this is anything but, so called, ‘real world’

      Our owner and manager both speak their minds – I’m glad about that. Hopefully he’ll stay in London.
