A stunning day in League One (despite sour grapes and a conspiracy theory)

16 Mar

It would be so easy to launch straight into those distractions that accompanied a fine win for Brentford over Leyton Orient yesterday (namely the post match performance of Russell Slade and the mid match performance of referee Robert Madley). Whilst we will get to both, to begin with anything BUT the performance of the Brentford team and supporters would be to pay them the most horrendous disrespect.

To a man, the Bees were magnificent. In a pressure cooker atmosphere, where everybody knew what was at stake, it was a Herculean performance.

To read the rest of this article, season 2013/14 is now available to download onto Kindle, in full. Containing previously unseen content, you can do so here for less than the cost of one matchday programme.

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.
