    MotM Man of the match v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 2-12-21

    International team mates. Also, given his very sensible reaction to the accidentally nasty gash JDS gave him, he might just be a decent bloke.

    Sergi Canós

    It’s a team game. All players need each other to perform.

    Sergi Canós

    I don’t think it’s a failure to recruit as that would assume we tried and were unable to recruit. From TF’s interview it was clear he wants Sergi as a winger to play the RWB role. He would have liked Dalsgaard to stay but as a RCB. We succeeded in recruiting a fantastic RCB ahead of other PL...

    Final Score Spurs 2-0 Brentford

    This is the step up from the Championship- opponents there also looked to do this (successfully in the case of Millwall and Cardiff) but were not as capable of doing it as consistently and didn’t have the quality to go from that to hurting us. But Spurs and most PL clubs will have much higher...

    Demise of Bovril at grounds

    Basically Bovril is pure flavour enhancer. It’s a solution of beef-derived umami. E-numbers just save writing out a long chemical name. They’re not all “artificial”.

    Mathias Jensen

    He was also very mobile yesterday in dropping back to receive from the defence.

    Final Score Spurs 2-0 Brentford

    Losing away at Spurs to drop to 12th in the PL is really the final straw. I expect us to win every game playing high tempo champagne football and accordingly I shall be cutting up my ST and posting it back to Jon Varney and the Coffee Cartel (who I first heard on a Peel Session years before...

    Final Score Spurs 2-0 Brentford

    Can’t be bothered to dredge up old posts but I think there’s likely to be a big overlap between those saying we’re rubbish relegation fodder now and ones calling for Frank’s head saying he’d taken us as far as he could after we lost 3 in a row last season. Not sure why people insist on moaning...

    Rico Henry

    Close thing between him, Sergi (who most didn’t think was up to it at all) and Pontus (who’s done something unusual for a player of his age and gone up a level).

    NEWS **** ----> The Thomas Frank GPG 2021 Interview <----

    Unsurprisingly considering what a good job Hjulmand is doing and the fact repeated over the interview that he and TF are v good friends! It may be a thing for him at some point but he’s clearly v ambitious, expects and intends to do great things with us and would then be in line for a job with...

    Tickets Chelsea (H) (EFL Cup) SOLD OUT Online

    Getting a sell out or near sell out crowd for a midweek cup game just before Christmas is a fantastic effort.

    Much as we were.

    Derby County - Financial Problems

    There’s no justification in protecting small business creditors of football clubs more than ones of other insolvent businesses. So they could change the rules generally to give SMEs, social enterprises and charities preferential or secured status across all sectors but not just for football...

    Tottenham v Bees predictions…

    Boring?! Maybe for the neutral but I don’t recall being bored at a Bees match all season. I think we’ve only had one 0-0 and pretty much every other result and performance (Burnley aside) if it had been in a cup game against PL opposition any time before the last couple of seasons would have...

    NEWS **** ----> The Thomas Frank GPG 2021 Interview <----

    I thought that was really interesting in terms of TF’s thinking about players and positions in an area where much of the GPG discussion is about needing a “proper” RB in the squad.

    Entitled PL fans.

    Yes and no. My son’s 15 and been coming sporadically since he was 2. This season is the first one where until Sunday he’d only seen us lose!

    We’ll know we’ve forgotten the past when they start playing “Only losers take the bus” over the PA.

    Hard to avoid. Things like “bus stop in Hounslow” might help remind people about our humble origin.

    Ivan Toney

    Every club in the PL barring the top 4 is a selling club. We will be selling as we always have but hopefully not as quickly. And the aim is to have players who’ll be wanted by the top 4 for top money who we’ll have a replacement coming along for. A good season this year may mean we get an extra...
