Celebrating like they’ve won the (first round of the) cup

13 Aug

On a night of cup shocks that saw Wigan Athletic lose 2-1 to Burton (stop sniggering at the back) and Crawley beat Ipswich Town 1-0, it was still Brentford that dominated the headlines – despite triumphing against Dagenham and Redbridge.

Our 18 goal Capital One Cup thriller (12 in open play and a further 6 on penalties) saw Brentford go through 4-2 on spot kicks after a surreal 6-6 draw. It was a game that equaled the competition’s previous ‘goals scored’ record (Reading 5 Arsenal 7 set in 2012).

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.

    Can’t believe that Barnet game was so long ago! There are people in my office here who weren’t even born when those goals were flying in yet it seems like only a few seasons back. Feeling old right now!

    I thought it was just a guy behind me who was groaning every time a corner was taken short. Obviously not. Part of the problem Saturday for me was we were not getting those crosses into the box often enough. It was Tommy Smith coming on who seemed to change all that.

    Loved the BBC putting up 6-6 (SIX-ALL) last night. Well at least our attacking players got something out of last night. The defence I imagine kept waking up in a cold sweat last night.

    Short corners? I thought that was hockey!
