Slade in Flame as Bees burnt (and a shock at Bournemouth)

15 Mar

Well that was all a bit ‘after the Lord Mayor’s show’. With Ipswich Town going down 4-1 in the lunchtime game at Middlesbrough, Cardiff City were all that stood between Brentford and a four point gap from the pack chasing the play off spots. But rather than take advantage of the opportunity, the Bees put in a sub par performance against a workmanlike opposition that we gifted two woeful goals.

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.

    Hope there isn’t a horrible, twisted kind of symmetry to yesterday as we went to Slade’s Orient home ground last season and beat them with 10 men and they never really recovered in terms of their promotion push. Blackburn is now an even more pressured game with both Wolves and Ipswich in the mix for our 6th spot. As for Cardiff, I don’t begrudge them the 3 points, they did score the proverbial one more, but they were woeful and surely Bournemouth will put a hatful past them Tuesday.

      Couldn’t agree more re the visitors – they were woeful but, as you have noted, they got one more than us. I guess the difference between this season and last was that we beat Orient by playing out of our skins against a team operating at their very best.
      At least this time around we know that the losers have loads more to offer if they perform like we know they can. Without doubt a setback but by no means a knockout blow. This season has far more twists left in it than last year when we ,effectively, made it a two horse race at this point
