The stuff of dreams or nightmares?

13 Feb

As Brentford prepare for the trip to Charlton Athletic, the future of manager Mark Warburton (whether short or long term) remains no clearer. The only thing we can say is that he won’t be going to QPR, at least this season. Loftus Road chairman Tony Fernandes has now followed up the announcement that he had got his ‘dream manager’ by revealing the appointment of caretaker Chris Ramsey until the end of the season. Truly, the stuff of dreams.

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 on.

    I’ve seen Dougie in a suit. I would be far more excited seeing Cameron and Natalie in the dugout. 🙂

    Sorry I can’t agree with you there, it is farcical that the club is in this situation, the best Brentford manager, team spirit and football I’ve witnessed at GP in my lifetime and the understatement of the season has to be “whilst I can only be impressed with what Warbs has done”!!
    MB may be the owner but this is our club and I have not felt like this since loosing to Huddersfield in that shoot out..

    Couldn’t agree more with BeeDraggled. Managers are normally sacked for incompetence or misbehaviour….neither applies to Warbs who has certainly assembled the best Brentford team I have ever seen. MB should be commending the manager and his team not to be looking to replace then because they will not do what he wants. Managers are paid to manage, leave them to it. If they mess up they are sacked, if they do a good job they should be supported and applauded.

      Fact is warbs would’nt be manager if it was’nt for benham giving him the managers job and letting him spend HIS money.Certainly not done Warbs profile within the game any harm has it. What fans want to be carefull of is that they piss Benham off with their negative attitude to his decisions and he pulls the plug on his finances guess its back to money in buckets again. Love Warbs and what he has done for my football club the best manager in my fifty years of supporting the bees, but lets get behind MB and drive the club forward before its to late for me. ONWARD AND UPWARDS BEES

      Shit doesn’t get any more real than this! Unless you’re talking about England stuffing the Aussies in the cricket tonight

    More scrutiny over MB’s actions needed instead of the blind faith. There may well be a lot more to come out yet from another perspective, but clarity from the owner ASAP is a must. I’d like MB to listen & show leadership to fix this.

    You employ a manager to manage……MB is the owner of the club if he wants to be the manager then stop the charade and let him make all the decisions for the club….how many think that will be the best course for the club? I don’t agree with the suggestion that because MB is funding the club he has the right to ride roughshod over the feelings of the supporters (97% in favour of keeping Warbs according to a poll) or to dismiss a manager who has done and is still doing a superb job for the club.

    Players & fans clearly back MW – but there is also a lof of support for MB, all of which is understandable given the lack of info & poor PR. Some of those backing MB are doing it through fear of a backlash & that is misguided – if he can’t be questioned or challenged something like this was always going to happen.

    In the end I think we will all finish up accepting things & getting behind the owner – but only when we’ve heard from him & had some answers. Most people are fickle anyway, players will soon come around too, money & career prospects will see to that.

    I’m devastated by this & based on the rumours can’t see what MB has done to lose his job.

    The more things change the more they stay the same, that statement must have been written about BFC.
