    Suggestion Taylor Richards - Brighton

    A central midfielder currently on loan at Doncaster. Pace, power, dribbling, passing, box-to-box and an eye for a long shot. Came through the academy at Manchester City but originally from Hammersmith. Brighton will probably want to keep him. However, given he’s out playing two leagues below...

    Suggestion Stefan Johansen - Fulham

    We could do with another body in CM. Our neighbours Fulham have a very decent, experienced international player who they are likely to loan out or sell this month (if they can)*. Given similar styles of play at both clubs, our Scandinavian links, and how local we are it might be a nice simple...

    Tyrick Mitchell

    Looking very good at left-back for Palace vs Arsenal tonight. Departed Brentford when the academy closed in 2016 as a 16/17 year old.

    Is this what sh*t sounds like when it hits a fan?

    Suggestion Luke Jephcott - Plymouth Argle

    I suppose we have depth in this area. But Luke Jephcott, who can play anywhere across the front line, has 15 goals in 21 apps this season for League One Plymouth. Only 20 years old. You’d take a look wouldn’t you. Surely Championship-bound, just a question of where he goes.

    Suggestion Siriki Dembele - Peterborough

    Plays across the front three, and put up some impressive numbers in L1. Is 24 years old. Today’s development: If he’s Championship bound, why not team up with Ivan Toney?

    General American Transfer Market

    With the changes coming in 2021 post Brexit, we know it is now harder to sign players based in the EU/EEA. However, for those playing regular first team football for their club and that are part of their international setup (even at youth level) we should have a good chance at getting them a...

    Post Match Thread Watford 1-1 Brentford

    A great point in the circumstances. We looked really good in different ways - on the ball in the first half - and then off the ball in the second. The game could have drifted from us after the red card, but we found a way to come away without a defeat, which was really pleasing. Watford don’t...

    Team vs Forest

    Well I think we have to expect rotation in every game now up until the new year, given the fixture congestion. We don't see behind the scenes the condition of each player, eg. no one would have anticipated Pinnock on the bench vs Derby last night. So there will be changes on Saturday. There's...

    Post Match Thread Derby (H) Match Reports and Reactions

    For me that was like watching a pre-season match against a top flight second string. I can see Derby’s problems - they had good rhythm to their passing at times but their XI was made up of youngsters not quite ready for men’s football and older, unfit-looking players that appeared as though...

    Post Match Thread Brentford 2-2 Blackburn

    Played well. Should have won. Bad subs cost us. Awful way to concede. Dropping points like this will cost us :(

    Post Match Thread Rotherham 0-2 Brentford

    First and foremost, a great result. The lineup was surprising, but in truth it was a matter of time before; we tried something else at right back, and we found a way to get Forss and Toney in the XI. Brave to test the waters in a midweek away at Rotherham. First half we found it a bit tough...

    Post Match Thread Brentford 2-1 QPR

    A deserved win in the end for sure. And also an interesting, entertaining game, the first we’ve been involved in for a little while. To give the devil his due, Warburton’s QPR certainly played their part in that. The first half wasn’t convincing from a tactical point of view. The midfield...

    Post Match Thread Barnsley 0-1 Brentford

    We didn’t look like conceding. Solid defensively. Janelt, Raya, Henry all very good. We didn’t look like scoring from open play all match though. A few dangerous set pieces. Kept the ball for large periods too, but never actually opened them up (until the last minute when they were chasing an...

    Team vs Barnsley

    What’s everyone thinking? I’d like to see Fosu given a chance at right back, not necessarily as a permanent solution - but we know Henrik is no longer a wing back and also no longer capable of playing at 100% in a 3 game week. Plus, I think Mbeumo will find it easier to cut in on his left if...

    Post Match Thread Wycombe 0-0 Brentford

    Injuries are a factor in this. But, whatever the reason, for the first time in a few seasons we really don’t know our best lineup or formation. Ghoddos and Canos look like square pegs, and today we switched between 4-2-3-1, 4-4-2, and some kind of 4-3-1-2. It’s causing disjointed performances...

    Team vs Wycombe

    It’s a game we really should win - and possibly need to despite the season still being in early stages. The gap in quality is clear. We are comfortably the stronger side. Whilst I don’t believe we can just turn up and expect to win, I think even with our injuries we can pick an XI in our most...

    Post Match Thread Brentford 1-1 Swansea

    Swansea played well today. We did okay but unless you’re on top form you’re not going to have it all your own way when they’re at their best. Pinnock was clear MOTM and snuffed out their attacking threat nearly entirely on his own. Toney being Toney nearly stole us the win - but sadly Canos’...
