Their keeper and last-ditch defending kept them in it for a long period of time. Good entertaining match.

Watched bits of it on YouTube.

Harrow had a great chance when it was still 0-0.
But most of what I caught was all Bees.

Those pesky Scots Guards played an ineligible player in the first game! IIRC.....:)
Are Harrow now going to put in an objection........Brentford B do not play in any league..............."In order to be eligible to play in the Middlesex Senior Cup, clubs have to play at step 5 or above of the National League System."
Scots Guards and all that!!

lol

Brentford FC do. That’s who is registered. Brentford B is just the team name.

B team playing the football but lots of overhit through-balls to the front guys. Bit sloppy at the back at times. Harrow chances from set pieces. We tend to rush our play, and Boro put everyone behind the ball. But this is completely winnable and I expect us to win. Joe Hardy’s had a few chances. Boro defence is pretty tight. Good turnout too. Wish the lads behind me didn’t swear every other word - there are ladies around us and it’s unnecessary and sounds really Neanderthal. PS Is Lewis Cole the brother of Reece? There’s a Boro player who is the spitting image - if L Cole is no.11...
Yep, he's the PE teacher who tried to break Theo's leg! Somebody else has probably said the same by now (am catching up on thread chronologically).

Racic, Okssanen and Ali Coote impressed
For me Hardy and Archibald. Hardy got MOM for his two well-taken goals, but Archibald was the stand-out player for me and a class above everyone else on pitch.Top marks tom the whole team though. Class and fitness will out in the end! Passing mention to Mogansen (may have his name wrong) who came on and made an assist with his first touch, then scored the fourth with his second! Comedy moment was Archibald, having been scythed down dangerously by Reece Cole's brother, took out retribution.... on the wrong man.

Well dour first half some of first team ideas ,our goalie showed confidence and very quick of his line . Second half Harrow showed there two days a week training against our b team players week at jersey road. Well even with there very late signing of a goalie who used to play for them Ross I believe due to the goalie be suspended and there reserve injured didn’t boad well . Final score 4. 0 hardy two who has pace and ability the other two from subs to make it a comfortable nite .so for our first bit of silverware which should be paraded in front of our first team Monday this is what it’s about instead of our lacklustre away form

Archibald really does keep gunning for it - pressures even into the 90th. I don't think 4-0 is actually a fair reflection of how their back line played, maybe 2-0 is. They were just gassed towards the end.

That said, good game from both sides - theirs was more hoofball, as I think you'd expect. We had some nice passing going on.

Good game of boys against men. First half was pretty even highlighted only by the Boro no 2 sweaty beard. 2nd hlaf Bees played much higher line and crisper, faster, incisive play. Could have had 2 within minutes of restart but for a dodgy offside call. The Bees midfield just completely dominated with Archibald and 10 (Coote?) tearing them apart. Then Finnsson came on for the tiring but very impressive Zamburek and he closed the Boro 2 down so many times and the Bees ran riot against their tiring defence. 4-0 probably fair reflection on 2nd half. Would have been more but their keeper had couple of great saves.
What I was watching for was questions like who is ready for the step up apart from the ones I already mentioned. Sadly I don't think Hardy is going to make it as goals apart he looked too lightweight up front. Radic I liked the look of and he'll make it. Gunnarsson impressed with his dominant coming for high balls and comfortably distributing out from the back. I was really impressed how mature Morgenson looked when he came on and I think we have found a real gem at just 17, showing skill, awareness of others better placed to shoot, and also having a fine finish himself.

A really enjoyable night out. My daughter was chuffed meeting Sawyers and Sorenson in the shop and both having their photo with her. For as bad an autistic person as she is this was a wonderful moment.

Mostly agree. Don't think they played hoofball though.

Someone should also mention what a top job Peter Gilham did tonight in his official guise as Middlesex FA man. Treated the role with the respect it deserved as well as the humour we expect form him. Ably and comically assisted by Rocket, formerly of Soccer AM.

It's taken me 54 years to see us win a cup as I missed the London Challenge Cup success in my early years at GP. Enjoyed tonight and Harrow, who I occasionally watch, gave it a go but we were more assured.

Hardy looked really good.
Really? Very average. Nowhere near good enough. Especially for the first XI.

Edobor and Racic at the back, Gunnarsson in goal, Coote (finally), Archibald and Zamburek had good games. Oksanen, Titov, Dasilva, Hardy & Hammer, were ok.

Maybe a silly question but do the B team play 4 at the back or 3 with wing backs like we do now?

Is Mogenson the striker we got from Denmark in January?

Excited by Racic and Zamburek. DaSilva too, a strange squat little player who seemed much faster than when i've seen him before, he has a lovely touch and is very clever. Archibald was excellent too but I thought Oksanen was a little disappointing, he was playing far too deep. But he has been injured so maybe that was a factor.
