The Championship has begun. But how was it?

10 Aug

Brentford kicked off their Championship campaign with a draw at home to Charlton Athletic yesterday and then had the added bonus of finishing clear of Fulham (who were beaten by Ipswich Town).

The final 1-1 score doesn’t even tell half the story. The Bees, who dominated vast swathes of the first half, were probably fortunate to come away with a draw by the end. With Charlton already 1-0 up, Callum Harriott somehow conspired to hit the crossbar when clear of David Button and with the net gaping.

If you don’t take your chances then you’ll pay the price. Sure enough, Tommy Smith popped up with six minutes left to send Griffin Park delirious.

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.

    Thought we played like a team with a number of new additions. Passes were often slightly behind or in front. Pritchard often found space but had no one to pass to. My MOM controversially was Tommy Smith. His introduction and experience swung the game in our favour.Also heard that Odubajo was carrying a knock into the game.

    Saw the Fulham highlights on Sky and was encouraged by their ‘performance’.

    Finally, what was going on with the shades of orange in Henderson’s kit?

    Good stuff. Going to enjoy your take on the Championship and continued notification of any typos and errors from the BFC press team! 😉

    Ps. Has anyone ever seen Cliff Brown and Dan Tana in the same room? The current chairman don’t arf remind me of the one in place when I started supporting the Bees!

      Thanks Luis. And I look forward to continuing from Last Season. That said, I’ve got better things to do than pick up on every editorial typo (although I thought Saturday’s was pretty poor – hence the mention)
