Are these the toughest decisions of the season…..?

11 Apr

Hats off to the Brentford media team. Not one, not two, but three from the same game at hapless Crewe (come on: prove me wrong against Wolves, tomorrow). Two from the home defeat of Coventry City. Even Marcello’s winner against Leyton Orient that inspired those famous FA Cup like celebrations.

If you are bored at work today then why not check out the excellent YouTube video they’ve put together to highlight the ten contenders for goal of the season. Not only can you see this below (and I have, on more than on occasion) but you can also vote for your winner with the prize to be presented at the end of season ball.

The best thing I’ve heard since Captain Kirk picked up a microphone.

It’s official. The best thing I’ve heard since William Shatner’s cover version of Pulp’s ‘Common People’ single.

Waking up this morning I was greeted by one of the Captain Kirk actor’s many, stunning, forays into pop music (c/o Christian O’Connell on Absolute Radio) along with the news that Warbs been named League One ‘Manager of the Month’ for December.

Mark’s award is fully deserved, with a 100% record over the period in question since he took over at Brentford from Uwe. I’m too lazy to leaf through the record books  but I’d imagine you can probably count on the fingers of ,erm, one finger the amount of times a club has won the award in successive months – with different managers!

Mark isn’t alone in being recognised, though.

vincent jim marcel countI wrote yesterday about the brief moment I thought Brentford had signed X-factor judge Louis Walsh. Of course, we hadn’t, but just hours later we then went and secured a real ‘Judge’  – midfielder Alan – on loan from Blackburn Rovers.

Nominated as the 2012/13 League One player of the season, his record speaks for itself and is anything but criminal. That said, given yesterday’s similar story about Sam Saunders being put forward for December’s monthly award (and rightly so), I imagine that at first the Blackburn man will have to be content on the bench.
