As i've said Brentford are exactly the type of team that we love playing.....they'll try to out play us and will suffer the same fate any team in this division that are that naive against us suffer........3-0 and a change of gear going into the 2nd half of the season.

The rest of them seem alright though to be fair.

We were also 2nd for the first 38 minutes v Stoke (until they scored) and for 7 minutes in the final game of the season v Barnsley (between minute 34, when QPR went 1 up at WBA, and minute 41, when Barnsley went 1 up at GP.......)
Not that any of this is etched into my heart of course.......😭😭😭🤬🤬🤬
At least we'll be 2nd for over half an hour tonight!!! 😁

Wonder how that’s working out for him?

Tbf, we can maybe cut him a bit of slack for not appreciating how good Brentford are/were.

Since I, for one, hadn't appreciated quite how good Bournemouth are.

(I'd still be tempted to go back and slaughter him if I knew where he'd posted it, mind! ;) )

Yeah I'll go with that, I've rated Bournemouth as one of the teams likely to take a top 2 spot, but my god were they good tonight! It would not surprise me one bit if the two of us were the top 2 teams come the end of the season.

And in all fairness the first 15 mins backed his opinion up completely 😂 We were too naive then and needed to tighten things up a bit.

Bournemouth were very good and can see why he thought they might get a result, but I just thought it was particularly arrogant to call anyone who wanted to play football against them "naive" and that they could just stroll down here and roll us over 0-3.

Far more grounded than fans of some fans who’s teams we've beaten. A club with fans much like our own.
indeed, this one seems to have forgotten his roots and got a little bit entitled after a few seasons in the prem.

Within 2 minutes of the final whistle my phone rings, and its my Kiwi mate who after 30 years in the UK moved back a
a few years ago, he does have a dodgy football background following Chelsea.
But for the 1st time in over 20 years he was effusive about us saying we would hold our own in the PL and that for all Bees fans
like me (the old 4000) we must be in heaven with our team

Just thought I'd pop by as a Bournemouth fan and let you know my thoughts on what I saw yesterday and the general consensus amongst Cherries supporters. Brentford were by far and away the best side we have faced this season.

The other, perhaps bizarrely, was Preston. Norwich potentially could be thrown into that mix, however we played them at a time where they have injury issues and "will he won't he" problems with Cantwell and Buendia.

Yesterday, I expected a 2-2 draw, and the general performance probably deserved that result - but, I'm not overly disappointed with defeat - if we're going to lose to a side - I feel more comfortable doing it to a team that deserved it, as opposed to our humbling at Hillsborough earlier in the season.

In 2020/21, I'm almost certain you'll get promoted. Keep hold of your talents and stay injury free, and you'll have the best chance you've had for a long time - yes, even better than last season. I thought you dealt with our threats really well, looked sharp at the back, and despite our chances in the first 20 minutes, you didn't let it affect you mentally, and there seems to definitely be a steely determination with your side which we're perhaps lacking at the moment. There seems to be a great blend. With Toney up front, you have a striker that will land you goals, but even without him, there are flair players that seem have taken to the Championship with consummate ease that will cause havoc against the majority of Championship sides. I'd honestly be surprised if you were not top two.

I think we'll be there or thereabouts. Our performance level was, on the whole, not bad yesterday - and I think the result was a great litmus test for what will lie ahead. I'm not overly frustrated as I perhaps should be, as I know that if we win the game in hand we'll be back to second - but, momentum is such an important thing in the Championship, and any team that can string together a series of results like you have will most definitely be challenging at the end of the season. Am certainly hoping we can do something similar.

We always do live shows after every game. I was producing this one rather than presenting, but in amongst the panel was the AFCB commentator (and BBC Radio Solent presenter) Kris Temple, who, like the rest of us, were very impressed by what we saw. Really looking forward to seeing how this season pans out!

PS: Also, excuse the plug - but we also spoke to Daniel Storey (Totally Football Pod and Football 365) and Nancy Frostick (The Athletic), video out tomorrow, both of whom have you down as promoted come May/June (or whenever the hell this season finishes).

Cheers

Preston also caused us big problems, self inflicted to a degree, earlier in the season, beating us 4-2 at home, with us having been 2-0 up at ht. PNE very in and out this season though.

And to be fair bar some last ditch heroics from Pontus and Rico they could/would/should have been 3-nil up inside the first half hour.
Shows our growing resilience that we came back to win it.
Mightily impressed and I think they were surprised.

Hmmmm, let me see....

Were there enough kind words to justify the blatant plug?

Does the absence of an "In Peace" swing it either way?

Does anyone ever care much about Bournemouth either way?

Dammit, we won, and it's the season of goodwill, so welcome on board, Sam! :sorted:

There was a thread on 'The Oatcake' (Stoke City fanzine) for those watching the Bees v B'mouth game on TV.

Very complimentary about Bees (also Bournemouth), eg:
"These 2 are streets ahead of us it's frightening."

"I am afraid the pace and power on display put us to shame. We are a work in progress for sure, but Christ we have a long long way to reach the levels on display."

"They both keep doing this thing where they kick the ball along the floor and it goes to someone on the same team."

This provoked the replies:
"Sorcery! Burn the witches!" and "Cheating Southern barstards
"
(Well made me laugh, at any rate)

"I'll be amazed if Brentford don't go up this season. They are best side in the league in my opinion."

"This is football on a different level to the sh*te we’ve been serving up lately. Both sides seem to be very adept at something the commentators are calling 'passing'."

"It's really annoying watching two smaller clubs playing football that we can only dream of producing."

Two smaller clubs......
There's some observational wit in there, too:

Sorcery! Burn the witches!

Well, we are, aren't we?
It‘s not how big you are, it’s what you do with it that matters. We may be smaller than Stoke but we engage in ridiculous and clearly unacceptable nonsense, like playing very attractive passing football and scoring things called goals. Teams like Stoke, Forest, Derby etc are - patently - bigger cocks all round, but we’re going forwards and upwards whilst they sit on the sofa watching re-runs of their glory years in the ‘70s on the box sets their Nans bought them from CeX.

I have no problem with accepting that ourselves and Bournemouth are smaller than them. Or that we're better than them at this football thing.

Some quotes from a Spurs forum.

Brentford is still a good side and we need to respect them.


On the way to final they have eliminated West Brom, Soton, Fulham and Newcastle. Latter 3 were eliminated with aggregate score of 6:0 (!!) yea, in 3 games they never allowed EPL team to score and in turn scored 6 times themselves.
So whoever suggests that we could go into this game with anything than best possible side is either ignorant or lying to himself.
They have no pressure and can just come at us with what they have.



Anyone else really anxious about this one?
Be less anxious if it was a PL team.


Ivan Toney is in incredible form, so we need to be hot on him. They are unbeaten in 16 games, having knocked out 4 PL clubs and playing in arguably the wildest league in domestic football, this isn't going to be a pushover. Granted, our strongest 11 is stronger than theirs, but we've all seen this movie before. We need to be treating it like the final itself.


They're basically a similar calibre to Brighton, Burnley, West Brom yet play more aggressively so are more dangerous. None of those games were easy. Every chance of a cup upset if we don't play a strong team.
