    EFL Cup Forest Green (H) Tue Aug 24th

    Wasn’t singling you out Maidenhead - just pointing out how collectively some of us tend to rubbish players when they’re still young and/or developing - then when we need them later in the season many of them come good (Roeslev and Sorensen last season for example). Halli is another case -...

    EFL Cup Forest Green (H) Tue Aug 24th

    Thought Saman was impressive this evening. He seems stronger in possession and his distribution is quicker and more incisive. But he seemed reluctant to take a shot - but he wasn’t the only one. At this point in the season we should take a moment and think back to the negative stuff people...

    Stadium Lighting During Game

    I was in the South Stand this evening (usually in West). Again a great experience mostly, but spoiled by the lighting. Not just the huge lights pointing straight down from above but the floodlights on the pitch as well, some of them shining straight into the eyes of spectators. Please…Turn off...

    OMNISHAMBLES Significant Number of Palace (A) Tickets NOT POSTED

    Thank you. Park Road is the road behind the Arthur Wait stand. Next question is - does anyone know a nearby pub?

    OMNISHAMBLES Significant Number of Palace (A) Tickets NOT POSTED

    So that’ll be the Rose Garden, Downing Street. If I get there for 1, allow 15 minutes for queuing and another 20 for focussed chat with PM’s staff, will that leave enough travel time to make the game?

    Palace (A) Preview + Predictions

    Does anyone know exactly where we need to go at Selhurst Park to pick up tickets? The palace website has a useful map showing a ticket office for visiting fans which is in the Arthur (an hour) Wait stand, but also says the ‘box office’ is in the whitehourse road/sainsburys end. As these are in...

    2020(1) Tokyo Olympics

    The commentary has been doing my head in. It’s all about whether a Brit gets a medal or not and not much more. I spent a few weeks in Australia. Aussie commentators had a love and knowledge of the sport and spoke with enthusiasm and humour whichever country was playing. You get a taste of that...

    Thomas Frank

    Yes, Thomas talked about the open culture encouraging players to come up with suggestions. If two such influential players come up with an idea that is then put into action they will really be wanting it to work on the pitch - and they will see how it can work, and be pushing the other players...

    Thomas Frank

    The fact we started this campaign so strongly was amazing - we not only got over losing key players we also recovered from the disappointment and extra effort spent in the play-offs. Thomas and his team deserve enormous credit for that. Remember - there were times early in the season when...

    Bees 3 - 0 Sheffield Wednesday (Mbeumo, Ghoddos, MBS)

    The back 4 were immense and intense from the start. They took control of the pace of the game and seemed to be willing Bryan and Tariq forward. I do wonder if Ivan being out meant others stepped up - it was so different to the last two games. Left-bech-Sorrenson was excellent, Bryan had space...

    QPR 2 - 1 Bees (Toney)

    We’re in an extraordinary situation. It’s an extraordinary season. No one else has been through what Brentford fans have experienced these last 12 months. We’ve left our old home - with no warning. We’ve watched from our front rooms as the team dragged themselves into the auto’s and then...

    General Overall Satisfaction With January Window

    Yes there may be many factors, but there must also be data from previous seasons. % of players in squad that are available for a game, averaged out across season. Obviously some months things are better or worse than average but what is that average?

    General Overall Satisfaction With January Window

    Further up the thread someone wrote, ‘we’ll have players coming back from injury’. Which is true, but it’s inevitable that others will get crocked. So has anyone ever worked the average percentage of a squad that is injured at any one time?

    Rotherham 0-2 Brentford

    Pontus is up for it at the moment. His, Toney’s and Janelt’s physicality make a huge difference on a Tuesday night away from home. Their attitude seems to motivate the rest. But we also have Ethan. Mr Cool next to Mr Angry.

    Sergi Canós

    Due to work I had to watch the match at 9 - after I knew the result. Before starting the second half I saw that the Canos thread was trending so guessed he’d done something - no idea if it was good or bad (it’s Sergi), but I watched him carefully when he came on. What I saw was that he had...

    Due to work I can‘t watch ifollow until 8.30 tomorrow. Rather than watching the last 15 minutes I’d like to watch the whole thing. Does anyone know if you can watch ifollow from the start while the match is still going on? Or when the replay is available?

    And twice he got crosses in from almost impossible situations in their box.
