What a denouement as Dan makes us feel like dancing.

17 Aug

Another home, game another clean sheet and another three points. Brentford moved up to 6th place in the fledgling Championship table with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest coming hot on the heels of Saturday’s 2-0 scoreline when Ipswich Town were the visitors.

It was a tense game, second half especially, and a demonstration that once again stats count for little when it comes to match analysis. Forest ended the game with 57% possession, 5 shots on target to our 4 and double the amount of corners. Yet Brentford bagged the most important one – balls in the back of the net.

Fair play to Marcus, too, for donning our wonderful new home shirt.

    A really good performance last night. Really heartened as to the strength of the defence, moreso knowing that Bjelland & Barbet are waiting in the wings too. Scott Hogan clearly perfect for the lone man role. He causes havoc! I had doubts about Elder & the unicorn after the Ipswich game, but last night the pair excelled. Bentley. Awesome! Generally, I thought it was a much stronger and character building display than the Ipswich game.

    Ah Brentford comms… not exactly Premier League! I am half expecting for us all to turn up one day at GP to be told by an exasperated official that we have moved to Lionel Road!

    Personally, I arrived at the game 18 mins later, which was very frustrating due to traffic from Dorset. Frustrated partly because I didnt know whether they played my #BeeTheDJ song to finally get me off the mark. It was ‘Happy Busman’ by Cork’s Frank & Walters in honour of John Egan. Probably not.

    And a ‘I beg your pardon’ Harry Hill-style moment. ‘Gabby Logan slipped one in’?

    A quality battling win, that’s 2 “big” clubs with their European honours beaten in consecutive games! GP was busy and looking stunning last night with a much more vocal crowd in – we need to keep this up..

    The NR gantry is much bigger than i’d realised, and hadn’t really noticed it on Saturday – I can see why people over there are unhappy and really hope BFC can sort something.

    My only negative on a superb night was to get mugged for a ridiculous sum for the usual round of drinks in the Princess Royal. When queried I was told that the regime had decided to put prices up on match-days only. If you’re happy to pay £5 for a plastic cup of Fosters then this is your place. With the Oak now gone that’s the end of my time drinking in any of the 4, it’s The Hive, Inverness or Kings Arms from now on, i’m well sad about it tbh.

      Drink in the Hive and put your money in the clubs coffers, my mates and i have done for the last few seasons for that reason.
