Decisions, decisions. Who’d be a manager? The big game awaits.

10 Sep

Saturday football is back. With most sports pages devoted to the incessant wittering on about if Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho will have a glass of wine together (although whether this is before, during or after the Manchester United – Manchester City game remains unclear) you’d be forgiven for thinking nobody else was in action today. But, of course, the really big one is down on the South Coast where Brentford head to Brighton hoping to pick up where we left off against Sheffield Wednesday. Albeit without the injury time equaliser or open goal chances being served up on a plate.

To read the rest of this article, season 2016/17 is now available for download on e-book in the retrospective: Welcome Home, King Jota (Brentford FC season review 2016/17)

Priced at just £1.99, all sales are being donated to the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust.

Likewise any sales from the previous titles – Celebrating like they’d won the FA Cup (2013/14), Tales from the football village (2014/15) and Ready. Steady. Go Again. (2015/16) – are also now going to the BFCCST.

Containing the least bad of the blogs from May 2016 to May 2017 along with a smattering of new material, you can pick it up, here. Its all for a great cause and,hey, you may even enjoy it…..

    Shall be there today and also making use of the free bus travel from Brighton city centre.

    We do have a leaky defence, yet some of our best players are central defenders. I would love Dean Smith to look at playing 3 centre backs, firstly to strengthen the defence, secondly as a means of starting attacks, but with such strength in that position with Bjelland, Dean, Egan & Barbet, far stronger in that role than any other at the club, I feel we need to be accommodating at least 3 of them every game, otherwise we could lose yet another valuable asset come January.

      I think Barbet could be that holding midfielder. Shitting just in front of the back 4. His ability to ping a pin point 50 yarder will create opportunites for the front players….IMHO of course

        Apologies about the typo in the previous post! 🙂
        Great result. We played the ball over the top to perfection today. Did what other teams have done to us the last few seasons. Dean in fact doing what i suggested Barbet might be capable of doing with some superbly weighted passes. Expectations for this season have now been raised. CoYB’s

    Crackin’ result, you Bees! I was not looking forward to listening to the results at 5 pm today, but I ended up very pleasantly thrilled. Really looking forward to the Preston game now!
