MPH has had a pretty good game. Cox's distribition the other highlight. Other than that good development game. Sotona not sure we'll take his option up - he's quick and technical and strong but lacks awareness of others and when he's offisde

Really good control by just about everyone, and quick, crisp passing. The crosses I thought were very poor however; with better crosses we could have run away with it - although I found Bradford pretty good at times.

I found the Bradford keeper (a Trialist I believe) interesting to watch: he seemed very confident with the ball at his feet, no matter how hairy the mess he was in, and he also seemed to have good distribution. Anyone know who he was?

Used to play for Liverpool apparently. Very small

Pretty much a B team fixture this... with the addition of Peart-Harris and DaSilva..

Brentford: Cox; Stevens, Russell, Trialist, Oyegoke (Trialist 46); Maghoma, Peart-Harris, Gilbert; Adedokun, Dasilva (Syla 74), Young-Coombs

Interesting to see Gilbert still involved, could mean we're actually keeping him on? I assume the CB trialist was the guy who played the other day and was v impressive on the left side.

How do you read the team? Was Oyegoke one of three Centre Backs with Stevens RWB, and Adedokun LWB, or was it some other formation? I am picking up the idea that Oyegoke could be being converted into a Centre Back do you think that could be the case?

I thought the same about the lineup, until I saw Syla came on as a sub. Who knows who the unused subs were, but yeah, feels very much like Hercules, Sotona, Mpongo, Ox and perhaps Hockenhull are on their way.

Yeh, he's played there a couple of times I think.. Could equally have been 4-3-3

Cox, Stevens, Russell, Trialist, Oyegoke - Maghoma, MPH, Gilbert - Adedokun, NYC, DaSilva (or swap DaSilva and Gilbert).

Yeh, that's an odd one. Can't see us keeping Syla?

I think you are absolutely right about Hockenhull .. Unfortunately, I also don't think that the club offers Mogensen an extension of his contract.

Though Mog is overage, I think they will, perhaps even one of those old skool deals they'd offer to departing scholars whereby they are retained for a period, to make up for time spent out with a long-term injury.

Gordons latest Instagram post maybe suggests he’s off?
Ahh, that's a shame. He's done really well this last year, but pretty significant that he's not really troubled the first team squad this year even with Thompson away. Does look like it might be a bit of a major cull then!

Was hoping we’d sign him up and loan him out as he really needs to be playing mens football now.

Hopefully he gets fixed up somewhere. Maybe will need to trial over pre season I guess which gives a bit of uncertainty.
