    FiveThirtyEight Predicted Table 2021/2

    It’s so early still, but the prediction table (whilst likely not close to being accurate on exact final position for most teams) will now give a good indication as to the kind of “clusters” of teams within the league and where ambitions should lie. From the above it would suggest that in the...

    Adjusting to PL

    We are competing in games fine so far. - Positive GD - WDDL - Just two goals conceded - A maximum of one goal conceded per game Carry on like this and I think we will just about be okay, won’t be safe by Christmas though. Note, we’ve not played anyone from this seasons nailed on top four but...

    Chelsea (H) Saturday 16th October 17:30

    Yes, a minimum of 10 TAPs or something.

    Final Score Bees 0 - 1 Brighton

    They’re a top half side. Had we lost to Arsenal and beaten Brighton I’m guessing some would have found that more acceptable but ultimately it’s the same number of points.

    Team vs Wolves (A)

    :confused: We do play 3-5-2?

    Final Score Bees 0 - 1 Brighton

    What was the Canos/Roerslev sub all about? Felt it made us weaker. If Sergi was flagging so early then that is a concern moving forwards?

    Final Score Bees 0 - 1 Brighton

    It had zero impact on the result and no bitterness at all but I thought the refereeing performance was a little poor. Tried to play clever advantages but often made a hash of it. Seemed to miss deflections and also see ones that weren’t there. Gave harsh yellow cards and then seemed to let...

    Phase 2 Points Predictions

    Get your point but having lost at home today we need to try to make up the points somewhere. It’s more hope than expectation of course. But Wolves were a bottom half team last season and in pre-season we more than competed with West Ham. Don’t think the mindset should be to just expect zero...

    Team vs Wolves (A)

    Right then, onto the next. I’m guessing the only point of contention for most will be which of Jensen/Onyeka/Ghoddos/Baptiste plays in midfield alongside Norgaard and Janelt. Here’s how I’d line up: Raya Ajer Jansson Pinnock Norgaard Canos Baptiste Janelt Henry Mbeumo Toney Depending on...

    Ivan Toney

    Agreed and think we need to find a way to cause overloads out wide to get more crosses into the box as that is where Toney thrives. Possibly a limitation of the 3-5-2 at this level with current personnel, as solid as it is defensively.

    Shandon Baptiste

    Was good and feel he offers the most balance as the “third midfielder” at the moment so perhaps we will see him get a run in the starting XI now. I did make the three following observations (not really criticisms); - Took him a while to get into the game - The braver he was on the ball the...

    Ivan Toney

    Reminds of Harry Kane. You look at his highlights reel and goal record and you expect a good penalty area target man and a reliable spot-kick taker. Instead what you get when you watch him live is all of the above, PLUS; a leader on the pitch, a player that will drop deep and join in with...

    Neal Maupay (Brighton & HA)

    Was a typical great Neal performance today, and no complaints with his antics. Think I’d still rather have Toney though.

    MOM v Brighton (home) 11/9/21

    Felt the core of Raya, Pinnock, Norgaard, Toney were all really good. Gone for Pinnock.

    Phase 2 Points Predictions

    Think we need to hope for 4-6 points from Wolves and West Ham away. Really tough ask but we are capable.

    Final Score Bees 0 - 1 Brighton

    Was an even game all over really, properly competitive between two similar sides that can both play and mix it up physically. They were a bit neater and composed in the final third but felt we edged the pressing game. Difference between zero and one point for us was being a little wasteful...

    Ben Winterbottom (Brentford B)

    Right but the list published on the OS of all the players and their associated squad numbers includes Cox but not the other goalkeepers from the B team. Furthermore Cox was taken to St George’s park over pre-season and is part of the first team GK training on a match day even where he is not on...

    Ben Winterbottom (Brentford B)

    Usually you can make emergency GK signings outside of a window if your only available GK is 18 and hasn’t played a single minute prior. I would say Cox being involved is less to do with being able to rely on him on a matchday and more to do with exposing him to the first team environment as...
