Bees beat Birmingham but should supporters be worried about Scott’s buttocks?

2 Jan

Well what a difference a few days has made for Brentford. Having ended 2016 with the insipid draw against Norwich City, the Bees began 2017 with a 3-1 thumping of Birmingham City as Gianfranco Zola’s poor start in charge of the Blues less than justified their board’s decision to dispense with the services of play-off chasing Gary Rowett.

Brentford could even afford the luxury of missing a penalty as we ran riot in the second half. Perhaps Scott Hogan (who grabbed our first)  – was a shocked as anybody else that the Bees had finally been awarded a spot kick.

    A win out of the blue which we definitely needed and an excellent second half performance, which arguably we needed more. It clearly was a good time to catch Birmingham, a club who have self destructed in recent weeks and nice to win at a place we have so little luck at over the years.

    Although Scotty has a spasm, I got the feeling he would have been rested against Eastleigh anyway. Although the injury gave us the opportunity of hearing the greatest word in the English language, and it was a shame that Dean Smith didnt deliver the news in full on Kenneth Williams mode.

    As for Bees Player, they had quite possibly their jump the shark moment. A half time discussion which was pure Partridge. I had to run and hide for 5 mins yet came back to a full on discussion on bread. Norwich was the last game!

    Great win, Smith’s pragmatism pays off with 5pts over the holiday. Touch & go, not always pretty but effective. A look at other trigger happy clubs such as Brum suggests we’re in safe hands. Here’s hoping for a decent window which improves the overall squad & adds a little sparkle to the performances.

    Want it all don’t we!
