Post match debrief and player ratings

6 Feb

Brentford 3. Southampton 0. A win that sees us remain unbeaten in the Premier League since late October and the best placed football club in West London. Chelsea, Fulham and the Loftus Road mob all trailing in our positional wake. It was a win that saw us closing in further on the European places or, dare we say it, higher? The trip to league leaders Arsenal on Saturday could be interesting that’s for sure…

As ever at this juncture, we look back at who shone for Brentford. Who were the players to cause Southampton nightmares. To so upset Nathan Jones. Likewise, find out who is leading the top five in our season long quest find an overall star player (aswell, of course, as the game by game marks). Will any of the subs have played themselves into contention for a starting berth at Arsenal?

And as ever at this juncture, you can find the answers here in the post match debrief and player ratings..

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

23 Jan

Leeds United 0 Brentford 0. A Sunday afternoon stalemate where there was, at least for the home side, the consolation of not falling apart. Again.

The Bees now up eighth in the Premier League and chasing down those teams in the European places. Not a typo.

Leeds failed to emulate a jigsaw this time around….. there was no falling apart in the box

As ever at this juncture, we look back at the game just gone. Who shone for Brentford? Did anyone outclass Leeds? Who scooped the star player award and who is leading the chase for the season long top five?

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

Brentford v Bournemouth. Post match debrief and player ratings.

16 Jan

Another game, another win for Brentford. The latest, a 2-0 defeat of Bournemouth at the Gtech. As one observer would point his morning, “Poor Bournemouth. They must have been so tired they had to keep taking a nap on the pitch.”

Despite out opponents close proximity to the filed of play and Mr. Gillet’s one man Mr. Magoo tribute act, Brentford held out and secured three more points.

As ever at this juncture, we look at who the top five performances, who might have earned a shot for for the next game (Leeds United away) and who is leading our season long quest to find the overall top performer for Brentford.

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

Brentford v Liverpool. Post match debrief and player ratings.

3 Jan

Brentford 3. Liverpool 1. A win that sees another of the, so called, big six humbled by Thomas Frank and his mighty Bees. A win that moves us up to 7th in the Premier League this morning and, perhaps, looking to see whether the passports are in date.

As ever at this juncture, we look back at who shone for Brentford. Who were the players to cause Liverpool nightmares. To so upset Jurgen Klopp with our ‘chaos’. Likewise, find out who is leading the top five in our season long quest find an overall star player (aswell, of course, as the game by game marks)

And as ever at this juncture, you can find the answers here in the post match debrief and player rating review.

West Ham v Brentford. Post match debrief and player ratings.

2 Jan

Brentford host Liverpool this afternoon but, before that, time for a quick look back to the game at West Ham.

Who starred for Brentford? Who broke West Ham hearts? Who is looking like making the starting XI when the Bees run out against Liverpool? As ever, those answers are here in the post match player ratings review.

Brentford v Tottenham Hotspur. Post match debrief and player ratings.

27 Dec

Brentford 2 Tottenham 2. The wait for Premier League football has been an interminable one at times but what a way for the beautiful game to return. The chance to follow on from our 2-1 away win at Manchester City has been a long time coming, with an awful lot happening in between, but the Boxing Day showdown was one which very much lived up to the hype.

Next up for Brentford are West Ham but, first, we need to look back at Spurs. As ever at this juncture, we need to pick a star player. To find the top five Brentford performers. Always a tough task and one made even harder this time around considering not only where we were but also just how fine we played.

And as ever at this juncture, you can find that here, in the post match debrief and player review. Enjoy….

Nottingham Forest v Brentford. Post match debrief and player ratings.

6 Nov

Brentford held to a 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest. The prospect of a trip to Manchester City next up for a team that, despite the enforced changes and injuries, can feel hard done by not to have come away with all three points. The hosts, lucky to end the game with eleven players after a somewhat petulant display from their ‘keeper. Likewise, fortunate not to have further questions asked about the nonsense in the warm up where the blunt end of a pitchfork seemed to be involved in some unorthodox action. Sh*thousery is alive and well at the City Ground.

Dean Henderson, yesterday

As ever at this juncture, time to see who was the star player for Brentford. Who made up the top five against Nottingham Forest and will anyone have earned a start against Manchester City on Saturday?

And as ever, the answers are here in the post match debrief and player ratings feature. Enjoy…

Brentford v Wolves. Post match debrief and player ratings

31 Oct

Last time out Brentford fans… well, let’s not go there beyond saying that some sort of backlash was hoped for against Wolves on Saturday. With just Nottingham Forest and Manchester City (both on the road) to come before the World Cup, the chances for Rico Henry and Ivan Toney to stake a claim for a seat on the plane can be counted on the fingers of two , err, little fingers.

So for now time to look back. On an afternoon that ended with Brentford adding another unbeaten home notch to the Premier League belt, did anyone shine against a Wolves team who put the boot in to.. well, just in. A masterclass of anti-football straight from the big book of Bryce Samba game killing.? Have any of our bench players done sufficient to make the starting XI for the Nottingham Forest game? Will we cope without Ivan and who was star player? Who else made the top five in the season long quest to find the top Bees’ performer? 

As ever, the answers can be found here……

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.

Brentford v Chelsea. Post match debrief and player ratings.

20 Oct

Last time out Brentford fans were left celebrating a 2-0 win over Brighton. A return to form and the obvious question of whether we could carry it on against Chelsea at the Gtech last night. Despite a host of injuries, the Bees played out a thrilling 0-0 that had both sets of fans on the edge of their seats for the full 90. With the trip to Aston Villa next up, will Thomas Frank and his team be able to carry on at this pace?

Happy fans at full time

For now, though, time to look back. On a night that ended with Brentford sitting ninth in the Premier League, who shone against a Chelsea team packed with stars (and a top, top goalkeeper)? Have any of our bench players done sufficient to make the starting XI for the Aston Villa game? Who was star player? Who else made the top five in the season long quest to find the top Bees’ performer?
