    Things other fans say about Brentford FC

    When we were bossing the game early doors someone did post on Owlstalk that 'Brentford are everything that we're not', which I intepret as an all encompassing comment on the contrast and disparity in the respective football club models.

    Can't believe there's still people out there that use the term spastic in this way, has that bloke been in solitary confinement for the past 40yrs?

    They're currently a more effective and it follows successfull team given their lg position. I'd argue that they are at the peak of their cycle, I can't see any transformative way they can tweak their style without that change having a distabilising effect on the team dynamic. I would argue...

    https://www.villatalk.com/topic/17650-1819-race-for-promotion/page/175 Brentford Nylons is laying it down for the entitled Villan glory-hunters. It could be the only season when 6/7 clubs could simultaneously run a promo and relegation thread after every round of games. Most peculiar lg this.

    A few highlight the disparity in playing style between the two clubs after the game, acknowledging what is obviously a better run club with an identity and playing ethos. Unfortunately they also presume we must have a tiny coaching and recruitment set-up without a DoF, questioning why they...

    To make a pt villatalk thread on home game against the Baggies revolves around whether they'll have to open the Trinity Rd upper tier. That kind of home support is commendable, but isn't really going to return you to the top flight. The predicament Villa face is they've lost their place in the...

    Out of interest, how much did the club make from this ambitious redevelopment of the Brook Rd stand? As a kid I remember getting my hair cut in Harry Nicolas' hairdressers, spending most of the time staring at the scale of this monument to football. Going to a game with my mates a few yrs later...

    The team need to settle quickly, dominate the exchanges and press for the 1st goal. Like many of the 'big' clubs in this league, home support can quickly turn and unsettle their players. They've got it in their locker to really push home an advantage in the 1st half, expect a confident display...

    I think the comment re. wingbacks is a compliment to TF, to change a system in a mid slump and gradually build momentum to this point is a profound statement of his coaching abilities. People play 5 at the back to stifle opponents and it often negates the overall team dynamic, it's incredibly...

    Before Brook Rd was 'replaced' with the WH the pitch was 5yds longer, so in old money was 115x73yds. Lots of clubs have shortened their pitches due to redevelopment(Wolves), Fulham's is the legal minimum(110x70) as they added 3/4 rows around the perimeter. Palace lost 5yds when they allowed...

    Ewood Park is actually narrower than GP, 71yds 2ft to 73yds. Its one of the longest in the lge, 116yds so is 18ft more than GP. Certainly not abnormally shorter in length than 75% of other pitches in this lge. If anything it would inhibit a passing team more than the route1 lot, so think its an...
