2015/16 kit update revealed as “free kick specialist” signs

12 Jun

As one Brentford mystery is, partially, resolved another threatens to be extended. There was a huge update on social media last night in regards to next season’s kit whilst the future of former manager Mark Warburton, currently hot favourite for the job at Glasgow Rangers, took a potential twist with the sacking of Stuart Gray at Sheffield Wednesday. And, of course, there’s transfer news.

But we start today at Griffin Park where news emerged on Thursday evening as to when next season’s new kits will be revealed to the world.

I say “emerged”. It may well be that this has already been announced and I’m just horrendously unobservant. Although given the well documented nerdish tendencies in that arena, I’d hope not .

However, just one of the many things I love about our club is the straight talking of the people in charge and their interaction with the supporters.

An awkward situation is avoided. For now…

Wednesday saw a potentially awkward situation for Brentford fans avoided (one hopes) after former boss Mark Warburton, the odds on favourite to be next manager at Rangers, distanced himself from reports suggesting he was in line to replace Kit Symons at Fulham. Clearly his stock is in demand, having spent the latter part of last season being linked with all manner of positions – even doomed QPR were on the agenda – and nothing has changed since.

My own hopes are that Warbs does end up at Rangers. It would be a fantastic challenge, an incredible long-term opportunity and one which a man of his ability would relish. Additionally, if Mark does find his way to Ibrox it he means he is no longer managing in the Championship.

Frankly, I don’t want him doing his best to scupper our own promotion prospects.

Could Barry Ferguson’s words about Brentford come back to haunt him?

Forget about the ‘in play’, it’s all about Glasgow Rangers and Brentford today. Despite my well documented ineptitude at football betting (it’s bad enough that half time on TV is ruined by Ray Winstone’s disembodied head and geezer-shtick without paying for the privilege) the boredom of the summer months has seen some internet based research on that most hopeless of tasks.

And by research, I mean nothing more scientific than checking out the latest odds. Primarily on the Bees but also on Glasgow Rangers where Warbs is the bookie’s choice to be named the new manager at Ibrox. This, after admitting he has already spoken to the club and would take David Weir with him as assistant. Checking this morning, he is 1/6 on with even David being the third favourite (now THAT would be an interesting role reversal).

To be honest, it’s nothing really to do with us anymore but until Marinus has had a decent chance to get his feet under the table, Warbs’ popularity and success with Brentford means it is still somewhat tricky not to associate him with Griffin Park. All being well, Rangers’ chairman Dave King will name him shortly and then we can all move on.
