Forget about Leeds and Hull – Ipswich Town await !

7 Aug

Football starts this weekend! Brentford entertain Ipswich Town at Griffin Park in a game that has almost caught us unawares, such is the recent focus that has been placed on Leeds United buying Stuart Dallas and Hull City bidding for two more of our players.

Forget about it. Easier said than done, I realise, but Stuart Dallas has gone and there’s nothing we can do about it. Except, perhaps, remind ourselves of all those players who have come in over the summer. And at this point I must apologise toRyan Williams, Josh McEachran and Konstantin Kerschbaumer whose names were omitted from yesterday’s column. Hey, let’s put it down to the tremendous strength in depth that Marinus is pulling together.

The Hull City stories will no doubt hang around like a bad smell but, again, there’s nothing us supporters can do about them. Steve Bruce is currently sniffing around anything with a pulse, much like a rather desperate mature student at a fresher’s week disco but, so far, nobody from TW8 has (officially) succumbed to his charms.

To read the rest of this article, season 2015/16 is now available to download onto Kindle (and other electronic reading device) in full, as :   Ready. Steady. Go Again. : Brentford FC season review 2015 – 2016

Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, it’s the annual clean up to make more space on the site for the inevitable follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further along.

But wait, like all the best infomercials, there’s more. The last three seasons of the Last Word : Celebrating like they’d won the FA Cup; Tales from the football village and Ready. Steady. Go Again are also available in one combined volume as: 

Brentford Football Club – The Bees are going up. Season reviews: 2013/14, 2014/15 & 2015/16 

We did. And we still are ! 

book 3 and 4 cover

Its all about the kit, man. And the Bees.

    Interesting team – i’d put Mac in for Yennaris and at if fit at least one of Vibe / Hoffman to start, probably Vibe. Deffo Dean as skipper and let’s see what he’s got in that role.j

    The worry is no starting spot for Tarks – he’s too good a player to be left out.

    As for JD, well I hoe he doesn’t start, his comments, media rumours, and our silence have made the club look bad – which may be totally unfair – I don’t know. Anyway he’ll get the respect he earned from me. Any gripes over tha past week go out the window for the game tomorrow, i’ll be right behind them and a great win over decent oppo may be the only statement that we the BFC family need to make.

    I go with an open mind and will call it on what I see – best of luck to Marinus and the team and COYR.,

      Thanks RB. I’d love he goes all out with The Hoff and Andre. Dean as captain seems nailed on but I just can’t see palace for Tarks unless Bjelland is injured – purely because the Dane is Marinus’ man, comes with a big pedigree and a he price tag.
      Put it this way – a lovely problem to have

    I was having a play around with the new additions on fifa and fancy a Vibe-Gray-Jota front three, if Vibes even half as good as Jota (which he must be because they have similar hair) I reckon they’ll be a lethal trio.

    I’ve also got a sneaky suspicion Grays been working hard over the summer and might have improved even more. Hopefully we’ll find out tomorrow. The wait is finally over, nearly.
