The team we fielded was always going to struggle to win, however apart from mad 5 mins at start of second half we did very well. I did not see that as a penalty either. This was not our first team but have nothing to be ashamed of, once again Daniels showed what a decent keeper he is, only the ball distribution of Raya keeps him out.

Thought BT Sport commentary and match summary was somewhat of a love-in about Leicester.

The round up summary with the unknown from BT Sport, and Robbie Savage was like a news broadcast from Leicester.

Shows why I think BT Sport is always second rate to Sky, where they do have a balanced view of 2 pundits across both teams.

That was poor keeping for their third.

But if these players were to become available for transfer in the future, wouldn't be a bad thing to have a relationship with them!
So they wouldn’t accept the best deal they would settle on who was nicest to them after a cup game.

If you put your foot in like that in the penalty area it's a big risk, was a silly challenge and looked a pen to me. We'd have all screamed for it. Was never going to get the ball as player was beyond him. Unfortunately that killed the game coming so soon after the equaliser. Thought Daniels should have done better with their third tbh? With Ghoddos giving the ball away for their first that's the one big frustration from this game really. I think if we'd hung on for 15 minutes second half we'd have got control back but that's the difference when you're not playing your first team. Anyway, onto the next one!

Savage thought Leicester was magnificent second half and was gushing. Did anyone tell him we had about 8 school children making their debuts?

however the commentator said about 20 times that Brentford are premier league bound or words to that affect.

Nothing new about Haygarth’s hairstyle.Just a bit more growth at the front. Photo from the 2010 TV series, Just William!!!B8C66697-768A-44F3-BAA7-41C1424D8CA5.jpeg
He’s a good footballer, so any one younger than me will definitely have decades of different hairstyles.😂

I've replayed the penalty incident on a big screen in slooooooooooow motion and freeze frame and in my unbiased VAR (Vid's Advice to Ref) opinion it was a yellow card for assimilation.

To be fair they were all over us in the first half. Like all commentators they tend to give weight to and wax on about whoever is winning

Hoddle was as bad, now that Vardy was out Leicester options up front were limited, no mention of Brentford. Anyone of us would have done a better job. Absolute crap commentary.

Radio Five Live gave good and fair coverage I thought. They didn't think it was a penalty. No VAR outside Prem they thought was unfair. Everywhere or nowhere they surmised. Ethan and Mads Bech outstanding, some other good performances. Leicester's no 4 should have been carded, maybe a red. Not even a foul given. Refereeing bias for the big teams with pally refs. Never mind, lets' give promotion a good go.

Hoddle was tedious! One disadvantage of going up will be having to put up with more BT Sport - usually so bad it makes me appreciate Sky Sports more which is an achievement.

Maybe they should in addition to " press red for no crowd noise" add and no commentary. Or "push up Brentford" on a loop for an authentic matchday experience.

You mean 3rd don't you.
That's current position in the table but it doesn't reflect their relative purchasing power compared to a significant number of other PL clubs, particularly given the number of players they've sold on to those bigger clubs. Like Southampton, they're the Brentford of the Premier League.

Just confirms to me I would rather be Leicester or Southampton any day than a Newcastle.

Exactly. Good youth systems, exceptional recruitment, profitably player trading, clear and consistent formation and style of play...

Might just be me, but isn’t anyone else worried that we’ve got playing for us the guy who shot Cyrus at the gang summit at Van Cortlandt Park?

Leicester are quality they have carved us apart. A team that are in the Premier League title race. Absolutely no disgrace to lose them.
Agree with , very good side, we gifted them the goals. Ghoddos caught in possesion in the centre of the park 20 yards away from our goal, Zamberek and Jensen guilty as well that led to the cost of two goals. Mistakes like this will always cost at this level. But we were beaten by a very good side. And i hope we take it out on Swansea on Wed.

my feelings as well. Ridiculous decision. Also their number 4 was lucky not to get at least a yellow.
We had 10 b team players in the squad against a top 3 team.
I do not wish to undermine the achievement of our team today, however, we should be gracious enough to acknowledge that it was Brentford Reserves (or Bench) verse Leicester City Reserves (or Bench). Leicester started with only three players who started against Chelsea on Wednesday. Leicester had a far higher quality Bench today than we did, all Premiershipo quality, but nonetheless eight did not start against Chelsea. We did well, now on to Swansea with a well rested, and far stronger First Team.

It was truly sh*te! There was also a delay on my pictures in relation to the commentary and it kept going to slow motion despite the fact that all other internet in the house was fine. Hate Sky but BT is even worse!

7 years ago Leicester lost the play-offs to Watford. They recovered and went up the year after.
They haven't looked back since.
That would be an excellent example to follow.

Hi Bees fans.

Lifelong Leicester fan here, but not here to patronise or gloat, infact more to show my admiration for Brentford.
I followed Brentford's progress last season and was willing you to get promotion. Unfortunately the team came very close but it was not quite enough to make that last step.
When you lost Watkins and Benrahama I thought it would be difficult for you, but with the introduction of Toney and excellent management, Brentford are a class act.
We ourselves probably wrote the ultimate underdog story, and it's why I wish for Brentford to succeed.
I have a real good vibe for your team this season, and whilst today's result is a blemish, it's already been pointed out that the Swansea game is far more relevant.
In our title season we had a great win at Spurs in January which was the beginning of our push for the title. A week or so later Spurs knocked us out of the f.a.cup, but this was a blessing. When the title race reached its crucial point, the other teams had Europe, f.a.cup as well as the Prem, whilst we were 100% focused on the league. That was invaluable. Brentford now can throw everything at the league.
If you make it ( and I hope you do ) then how should you tackle the Prem. Well Brendan Rogers says in our local press he was ' misty eyed ' about Brentford because he saw the same qualities that his Swansea team possessed when they had a golden period.
He liked the fact that the team played good football, and were a team and not a bunch of individuals.
Whatever happens astute recruitment is essential. You can compete at the top if you get the right players for your club. At Leicester the highest value transfers have often been the most disappointing. We spent £30m on Slimani, nearly £20m on Musa, and there are many others that have had little impact. The greatest signings were all players that were little known before joining.
Vardy 1M from Fleetwood, Mahrez 400k from French 2nd division Le Harve. Kante was £6m and was an absolute bargain. Currently we have home grown Harvey Barnes, and young talents Tielemans , Madison, Fofana, and others. The message is that you don't need to spend fortunes so long as you get the players to fit your team.
Anyway good luck to the Bees, I shall watch from a distance with great interest. You would be a welcome addition to the Prem.
I hope you succeed

Sorry, but that was not a penalty. Tielemans clearly kicks the back of Fosu's leg. Michael Oliver couldnt wait to give it though, would have been interested to see what VAR would have made of it. There's definitely a bias towards Prem sides fro the Prem refs. Chelsea's opening goal today came from a throw on when there was clearly another ball on the pitch. Instead of making Chelsea take it again he favoured the Prem side. I bet if that had been the other way round he would have made Luton take it again.

I thought Leicester were very good today and Maddison was as classy as I hoped he would not be. As a team they were quick, strong in the tackle and good on the ball. It is matching the physicality of the players in the top teams that is the next step up we will need to make in my opinion. Josh Da Silva is one player we have at that level at the moment - someone who is hard to knock off the ball in possession.

I wanted to check the highlights footage to see if it was or wasn’t a penalty. But, unfortunately, the actual incident has been totally edited out of the official video.......!!! :mad:

Said to my wife at ht, now we need to bring on some first teamers to give us a chance to close it out, may still have lost but would have been closer, although tough on the kids, but life is tough.

Leicester were far the better team today ,no arguments there...
However,I thought the 3 goals could so easily be avoided. The marking was atrocious and the passing even worse !
A good learning curve for TF for sure.

What is the verdict on the new ground ? I know that you have not had the chance to enjoy it yet, but from what I've seen it looks great.
We left Filbert Street in 2002, but to be honest and despite all our recent achievements my personal best memories are still at Filbert Street. My god it was old and delapatated but boy did it provide fabulous memories. Never quite had that since leaving. I wonder what your thoughts are at leaving Griffin Park ?

There can only be a discussion about the new ground *after* there’s been a discussion about the new badge. Sorry - GPG’s house, GPG’s rules.
