The boys went into 5th gear from the 1st minute, gave them nothing.

Loved the Watkins celebration and Rico assist, excellent to finish at GP on such a big occasion
Some heavy tackles on Swansea player in the first 10 mins, it told them we are not mucking about tonight

Brilliant, when we played Leicester in the Cup this season the BBC so called experts were drooling over the pass for the Leicester goal. The Jenson pass was as good if not better
It was the weight wasn't it! Absolute dream. As I said elsewhere, Sawyers is the only other player in the division with such a deft pass in him.

I don't believe anyone's mentioned the moment near the end after Said's attempted top-corner shot where he fell to the ground, but Ollie was straight over there physically picking him up. I think you could see him shouting "come on", egging him on to put in his all for the last few minutes. An absolute class act. Ollie's whole game was incredible. :eek:k:

Yeah, I spotted that. Great team spirit.

Three great finishes and the feeling the players had finished feeling a bit sorry for themselves and really wanted to win this (and the final!) Swansea's match highlights of second leg shrinking to 2 minutes from the 10 minutes of the first leg. Different tone too!

Ball went out near our technical area (aka ‘the dugout’). It bounces up to Thomas. He gets it by one hand and slips it into our bench area (comment: not very sportsmanlike IMHO - but then again we were playing against a team that has Andre Ayew in it (his friends call him the biggest c*nt in the Championship). Connor Roberts loses it and gets Thomas by the throat. Thomas is interested in pursuing this line of physical interaction with Roberts and ‘wants some’. Everyone piles in and drags them apart. They both get booked.
Steve Cooper said "It was dangerous, it was reckless, I was really just happy that Conor got up".

Having watched the highlights back last night, when I got in from work, the moment when Ollie raced back and tracked Bidwell, and made a superb challenge, and then within a minute OW is up yhe other end chasing down what seemed to be a lost cause and winning a free kick after being clattered.

The amount of ground Ollie covers, during a game, is little short of astounding.

Watched it at the in laws on Hayling Island, on a really delayed stream.

It was actually nice being a few minutes behind at times, knowing we were about to score due to the loads of messages coming through. Even watching that last minute corner, knowing we had done it was a relief!!

You’re being a little harsh on Marcondes there - remember his pass to set up Mbeumo v Sheff Weds?

All the above, but Liam Rosenior boasting that he is going to Wembley to watch us again on Tuesday was beautiful.

Proper officiating - what a pleasure to not really notice them and know it was because they knew what they were doing!
Ollie Watkins - he would still be running now if he had to - what a game he had?

He even mentioned about when his dad managed at GP.

Thought he'd want to forget that.

Mick McCarthy seems to absolutley love Brentford. Over both legs he had plenty of good things to say. Likewise Liam Rosenior as mentioned above. I think the fact that he is on the Derby coaching staff and was still so complimentary really is testament to how good we are and have been this season. Forget the idiot Leeds/WBA/Forest fans on Twitter, proper football people know that we are doing things the right way and doing it well. The majority of others can only look on in envy.

Reading some of the comments on BBC Sport Have Your Say.

Apart from the few obvious idiots , there are so many comments from other clubs' fans wanting us to go up

I don't know why, and I don't want to be hated, but some of the love in from fans of other clubs leaves me cold and a bit itchy.

I'm exactly the same. All of sudden, everyone knows everything about Brentford. I don't mind new fans, because I genuinely hope that they become life-long and die-hard fans. But it's those who suddenly have an opinion on Brentford when they know nothing about us.

MM (and the commentator and the pundits on Sky) seemed to be more or less supporting us last night - and willing us to be in the PL next season. I enjoyed MMs comments but for me it's always tainted by my belief his hired assassin, under instruction, effectively wrecked Judgey's career.

Lots and lots last night. A veritable Jeroboam of Champagne. From Sir Peter G roaring the team onto the pitch one last time through to Thomas Frank's Top Top post match interview with Sky. In between time the 3 goals provided:
Conor Gallagher selling himself to give Jensen the space to provide the Watkins pass
Jensen using that space to execute a pass of sublime quality (with his "wrong" foot)
Watkins cool as you like run and finish - 1-0, we're off and running.
Said spotting Marcondes intended run and delivering a perfect cross
Marcondes top top header - 2-0 we're in the lead
Henry's cross
Bryan's fabulous volley - 3-0 we're home and hosed (forget Pontus' moment of Sunday League madness, we were there)

Same again Tuesday please. We are Bees!!

He said during commentary last night he knew how good we were when he managed Ipswich but had a plan "to get at them" translated that means break a leg in 4 places to stop them playing - f*****g dinosaur

I really really honestly dont think he meant that. Get in their faces and rough them up a bit maybe, but not that.

He didn't mean "go and break his leg" but I'm pretty sure there was a "put one on him" instruction. Those that were there will probably remember that the tackle that broke his leg wasn't the first horrendous challenge on Judgey - early as it was. And the post match comments did him no credit at all. It was as bad or worse than anything you'd have seen in the 70s.

Anyway, we digress. Back to more pleasant matters :backtotopic:

Love how Jensen casually laid it off to Rico to set up the 3rd goal.
Also is it who brings the ball out from the box after Rayas save from Gallagher. So classy
