Scott Hogan earns the ultimate recognition but is FIFA better than Nintendo?

22 Sep

scott-hoganWith Brentford getting themselves ready for a return to action at Wolves this weekend, all the talk has been about Scott Hogan. His goals speak for themselves but, once more, those Republic of Ireland stories are doing the rounds.

Perhaps too soon for a player with just handful of Championship games but just about as many goals under his belt? Or a chance for the Irish to grab a player who is, metaphorically, ‘on fire’ and terrifying defences up and down the land? Somebody really should use that one. It might catch on. Please. No.

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…..

    A tiny bit harsh on Muff imo, sure they spent loads and gambled with FFP, catching a minuscule £7.5M fine in return for at least 2 years of PL riches. But there are far worse examples of pure greed and stupidity across the top 2 divisions. I’m happy to see smaller clubs sticking it to the entitled elite and see us similarly. By the way there a plenty of bods (especially in the Walsall area) that accuse MB and BFC of buying our L1 promotion a few years back – it’s relative I guess.

    As for Scott Hogan, hope he swerves all the ROI noise and keeps doing his thing for us, he’ll have the call from England to consider before too long as well.
