Aston Villa v Brentford. Post match debrief and player ratings.

24 Oct

Last time out Brentford fans ended the evening marvelling in the afterglow of that wonderful performance against Chelsea at the Gtech. Spirits were high and the prospect of a trip to point shy Aston Villa one to look forward to. Then, disaster. The Villans relieved Steve G of his duties and set in play a Caretake manager driven tanking. The Bees three goals down in under a quarter-hour before eventually ending up on the wrong end of a 4-0 deficit. With the visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers next up, will Thomas keep faith with his starting XI or ring the changes? 

A boisterous Villa Park

For now, though, time to look back. On an afternoon night that ended with Brentford still in the top half of the Premier League, did anyone shine against  an Aston Villa team with more than a few points to prove? Have any of our bench players done sufficient to make the starting XI for the Wolves game? Will Ben Mee return and who was star player? Who else made the top five in the season long quest to find the top Bees’ performer? 

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

    A truly shocking and inept performance that does not deserve further comment or rating

    Was fortunate that I was neither there, nor could i find a reliable live stream. Our second pasting in a month is a worrying trend, and I do feel management may need to take a step back and ‘start again’. Lets get Damsgaard on & in his favoured position, then work a system around him, so he can provide Ivan with some service.

    I can’t get out of my mind the (probably coincidental) link between two consecutive away fixtures requiring more than ten miles travel down the road. Does the team suffer en masse from travel sickness I wonder?!
