Newcastle United debrief. Who impressed as The Bees end up stung?

27 Feb

Brentford ended Saturday on the wrong end of a 0-2 home defeat to Newcastle United. Josh Dasilva saw red and, the debut of Christian Eriksen aside, there was little to cheer. At least, for those us supporting The Bees. Norwich City are next up and the hope will be very much that a run of one point from the last eight league games can be arrested.

Frustration all round

Performance wise, was there anything to write home abut? Did anybody impress for Brentford in a game that saw Newcastle United muster an incredible 26 shots over the course of the 90 minutes? Who would be your first name on the team sheet for the trip to Norwich on Saturday?

As ever, the player review and match summary to look at those very questions is now up. You can find that here….

    After yesterday’s game a tactical tweak will be falling well short ….. a major overhaul is needed. The whole squad but more importantly Thomas and Brian should watch that game back and ask themselves if they were the oppositions manager what should they be frightened of. Because I reckon every manager for our last 11 games of the season will be mentally thinking that’s 3 points in the bag when they see the Brentford fixture come up.
    We need to thump Norwich to make them re-think. I’ll take an ugly or lucky win, nothing less but would prefer a thumping to show our intent. This’ll mean we have to attack in force and dominate …. something we haven’t done for ages …. time to step up lads!
    We are not a containing/out-footballing side but we do scare opposition sides when we run at them.
    Show videos of the Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea games to reaffirm it to the squad.
