After the storm, some reflection

22 Mar

Talking in the pub last night and looking around cyberspace this morning it would be fair to say I wasn’t alone in ‘The Last Word’ assessment of Brentford, following the 2-2 draw with Millwall. Equally, having shot from the hip and now having had the benefit of sleeping on it, can we take any positives or even just reassess a column written in the heat of the moment?

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.

    On a plus note, we started the weekend 7(seven) points from an automatic promotion place. We are now 6 points from that position.

        Thanks for your comments.

        I’m not going to lie about what was a dreadful (albeit, out of character) performance. Call it doom and gloom if you like but at least I’m honest.

        I’m desperate for us to do well and have been full of praise and optimism throughout the season.

        Even in this one, as I’m sure you’ll have noted I’ve also been keen to stress this was “testament to the phenomenal standards we have set this season that disappointment is so high”;, that we “are still in with an incredible chance of a second promotion in as many seasons”.

        Likewise, that: “Bees fans slagging off individuals with such passion doesn’t help anybody”.

        YOU BEES – exactly. I won’t pretend we weren’t off the pace yesterday but, equally, I’m still convinced we ARE going up .

      Very true. Can’t argue with that and, as I’ve noted, a win next time out could even take us fifth! Still plenty of good tomes ahead.

    You mind does think about some odd things!

    Although my favourite non-game moment of yesterday was the half time kids kick in in front of the ER, and the moment when one boy went for the top left corner and would have hit it straight into the back of the head of a passing policeman, only for the width of the post to save the bobby. That post denied a possible challenger to the late equaliser on the GPG’s champagne moment.

      A great spot, sir.

      And when the fare on offer was that meagre, you’ll forgive my mind the odd wander into the obscure
