Brentford v Leeds United. Post match debrief and player ratings.

5 Sep

Brentford 5 Leeds United 2. Any lingering frustration from the final game of last season was well and truly put to bed at Lionel Road on Saturday afternoon. Next up, the trip to Southampton at the weekend.

Ivan opens the floodgates

Despite the obvious goals from Ivan Toney, could anybody edge past him in the quest to discover our star man?  Who else shone for Brentford against a Leeds United team for whom Patrick Bamford was arguably their best defender (how he managed to steer the ball away from David Raya’s unguarded goal line is still a mystery)? Have any of the bench players done sufficient to make the starting XI for the game with Southampton?

And as ever at this juncture, the answers can be found in the post match debrief and player ratings. Which is now online here.

    Ben Mee was unbeatable …. great game from him. Ajer and Pinnock must be thinking what will it take to dislodge him from the starting eleven.
    Footballs a funny thing as that 5-2 scoreline was more befitting of the Everton game (and that’s being generous to Everton) and they went away with a point.
    Leeds …. hmm …. 5-3 …. 5-4 … 6-4 still to us though.
    Happy days ….. is it too early to dust down the passport for European travels next season? 😉
