The best and worst of football in one incredible video

13 Jul

To be honest, I wasn’t going to bother with a column today. Yesterday’s news was dominated with the Raheem Sterling from Manchester City to Liverpool saga that left a somewhat acrid taste in the mouth and had me reaching for the Internet’s ‘off’ button. And then I woke this morning to a text message from one Griffin Park terrace wag (wit, rather than wife. And/or girlfriend) pointing me in the direction of the latest bit of brilliance from Brentford.

I haven’t overly talked about the pre-season tour this year. Brentford are in Portugal and Peter Gilham’s tour diary / the photo montages are doing the usual great job of keeping us abreast of developments. There have been the challenges – go-karts and table tennis – the usual good weather, golf games, shopping malls and even some training. Plus, of course, the obligatory, karaoke slot for any newcomers to the Brentford set up.

Flemming showed his true colours on tour

Step forward, Flemming Pedersen. Our new head of Football Philosophy and Player Development certainly had a few people outside of TW8 sniggering when his role was announced.

Not only was this grossly unfair, we hadn’t even kicked a ball in anger and so what on earth evidence did they even have to judge this on?

If you haven’t been to the club YouTube channel as yet, please go immediately. Sometimes, the written word isn’t enough. This time, every laugh is rightly deserved for a video entitled “Brentford’s Flemming Pedersen murders I Just Can’t Get Enough by Depeche Mode”.

Frankly, murder is a generous description. Flemming may struggle to channel his inner Dave Gahan but he’s a true pro when it comes to player morale.

Great job, Flemming. Great job, Brentford. And enjoy.

You have been warned…..
