Please take the handbrake off Thomas. Tell your midfield and wingers to grow some nuts, up their quality, get on the ball and make it happen.

Go out and smash them.

Honestly depends on whether we decide to play football or not. We play like last season we win 4-0, we play like this season at times, maybe 1-0 with a threat of 1-1. We have the players to play football still, let's start doing it again!

Depends which team turns up. If the first half of last night, then 2/3-0 Bees. If the second half then probably a defeat. Hoping for the first half team.

1-1.. Forest recently have been pretty hard to break down and they will more than likely score once.

Well I really expect some repercussions from last nights second half issues, so I'm going with the batter them posters. 4-0 . Back on course.

I know I shouldn’t compare but I hope the Bees team were watching Chelsea’s performance against AM last night. After going ahead they kept pressing the opposition - no negative passing at the back. AM couldn’t get back into the game and the result was never in doubt. Hope TF changes tactics once we go ahead against Forest.

Forest have only scored 4 in their last 9 games and only once in their last 4.

Cut out the second half crap from Tuesday and it’s a home banker.

I wouldn't say we stopped pressing after going ahead, after all we did get a second goal, and could have had 2 or 3 more in the first half..........
I don't think we deliberately sat back in the 2nd half either, we just didn't play well/react to how Derby played...........

Forest one day less to rest after chasing Canaries last night. Bees have extra rest day plus second half at Pride Park. 2-0 win please for the mighty bees and goals 28 and 29 for IT.

Don't care about the score, or the performance just needs to be a BEES win. Regroup and come back stronger for the final push.

The BIggest problem in my observation is that the team just hoofs up the ball in order to get rid of the pressure from the opposite team and give them a 10-second breather while the other team collects the ball, gets it back in Brentford's half, maintains possession, and create more and more chances.

The team has to play a possession kind of football after the opposition attack. let them run after the ball, and tire them. they need to position themselves in order to be able to maintain possession after regaining control of the ball. I hope I'm wrong but if this continues it's going to be down to play-offs.

Want to see a positive performance, the direct long ball and hit an hope up too Toney will only end with one outcome.

They aren’t very good, my brother is a tricky tree and he reckons we’ll thrash them...I’m going to say 2-0 to the good guys

After Derby, this becomes an important psychological boost as well as the points available. Head says they might frustrate us to a scrappy draw, but heart says Bees back in business. So I’m going 2-0 Bees (Ivan plus anybody).

Going into the International break and a two week lay-off (although I know not for some) - we really need to go into this period with the psychological benefit of a good win to set us up for the final leg. Here's hoping, with everything crossed.

We start fast away from home and do the polar opposite at LR, so it's imperative that they iron this one out as Forest on their day have better players offensively than the myriad sides we've silted early goals to recently.

I also think if we concede first Hughton will have far more nous than MON, Warnock, etc in setting traps and frustrating us.

I don't think TF will mix it up with the selection so we have to pray the idiosyncrasies that we're currently displaying in-game will take a back seat.

Slightly concerned what Ameobi could do to us on our left and how we'll react to them loading up and pressing us in midfield.

Bees 2 Forest 1

I know people will call me names but I have a horrid feeling it's going to be 0-1 Forest. They score early and park the bus. God I hope I'm wrong!!!!

While we are contemplating predictions, please take the opportunity to predict a Cardiff win on the Planet swans forum.
No need to log in to do so.
Still childish, and still very satisfying!

As I stated on another thread. It was this time last season, after 36 games, that we won 8 on the bounce and no one saw that coming after losing at Luton, then drawing at Cardiff 2-2 after being 2 up. We only got 4pts from the 5 previous games. Can we do it again. Yes we can. 2-0 win. Up the Bees.

They are crap. But then, so were Derby, who had a similar record before our half-time team talk.

This is, on paper, our easiest game left. If we can't win this handsomely, then it's a struggle over the line to ensure a play off place and trust to some immense luck afterwards. And to be honest, if we can't turn over this lot, then we really have no place in the top 2.

I predict that the team will be well prepared and very focussed on getting a positive result.
