All about family as Bees live to fight another day against Forest

7 Apr

Brentford kept their play off chances very much alive after Jota’s last minute (when else?) header rescued an unlikely seeming point against Nottingham Forest at Griffin Park. And although Wolves managed a similarly timed winner to end up on top by the odd goal in 7 (seven) against Leeds United in the evening game, thus leapfrogging the Bees in the table, with just five games to go destiny is very much in our own hands.

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.

    What a crazy weekend of football. Thought Forest defended well and their keeper made a few very good saves, just shows that if we can lay siege and have what felt like 15 corners in a row, something will go in eventually. Our crossing could be improved mind, Bit frustrating to see Moses run the length of the pitch beautifully time after time before over hitting the ball in. Last observation is despite his brilliance I think Jota might be even more effective in a more central role, he’s a bit predictible cutting in from the right. Still a joy to watch.

    Have enjoyed the blog for a while now, keep up the good work.

      Cheers Mike.
      Interesting point about Jota, too. Would be very interesting to see him take up that attacking centre-mid position that Dougie keeps pushing himself into. Perhaps allied with Moses pushing up to a more natural wide right and the return of McCormack at RB.
      Nice problems for Warbs to have although, for this season at least, I’d imagine its probably too late in the day for a bit of experimentation.
      Or is it…..?

    I thought having Judge to replace Douglas was a good idea anyway, despite the suspension issue. Judge was superb in the Brighton cup game in that role, and Dougie has not been at his best recently and possibly needed a rest after a game 3 days previous.

    As for the game, Forest nearly played the perfect anti-Brentford performance…containing Brentford by packing the defence around the edge of the penalty area, then hit Brentford on the counter with fast balls down the wings or over the top. Fortunately, few clubs can match our determination and fitness levels and Jota’s never say die attitude! Yet another game where I ended up hugging complete strangers, and complete with sunburn this time.

    Did you know that Lee Dixon was standing on the Ealing Road?

    Lovely family pic, one for the family album!

      I’d agree with you on the Judge/Douglas swap. My comment n the article was more an attempt to guess what Mark Warburton will do next. And one can only presume that, having rested him to stay ‘safe’ for Derby, he’ll now start that one.
      As for Lee Dixon…. we saw a chap outside the Griffin pre kick off who we thought was the former Arsenal full back, before dismissing the notion as utterly ridiculous.
      The flat cap and scarf he was sporting making the man in question look more like an extra from an Albert Square (Eastenders, apparently) market stall

        Dixon was at the Fulham game Good Friday as well. Not sure what stand he was in. But after he walked past me, 5 mins later came Tony Gale & David ‘Diddy’ Hamilton together and finally Mark ‘Hobblin’ Devlin! Sadly 5 mins later neither Hugh Grant nor Dennis Waterman walked past, so at that point I went in!
