Always felt confident we would win before the game. First half was very cagey and largely uneventful. QPR did reasonably well to contain us although we should have scored through Said one on one and Barbet volley was going in before a good clearance.

Second half the penalty decision changed the game. At first I didn't it was a penalty, many referees would have played on but once we scored there was only one winner. We could and should have won 4/5 nil thereafter.

Play at home we are a match for any team in the division and thats the frustrating thing as I haven't seen any team better than us this year when we have been on form. We were better last Saturday IMO but still some of the football was good without us being at our best.

We are streets ahead of QPR on the pitch and off the pitch and that is a great feeling. They wish they were us. Sell players and sign better players whom we sell for larger fees.

Said and Maupay are Premiership quality.

This is not the first time that a team has come to Griffin Park with the intention of "Roughing Us Up", and QPR made that perfectly clear within the first 10 seconds today. In the past we may, in the face of such tactics,, and a weak referee, have crumbled. What was very apparent to me today was that we appear to have become far more resilient than previously. Whilst we may not have, as some have called for, an "enforcer", today Dalsgaard, Jeanvier, and Barbett were certainly not adverse to getting their retaliation in first, or indeed paying back those who deserved it. All round we appeared to be far stronger physically as a team. Our style and quality of football was not affected so long may it continue.

As soon as I seen Kamo on the team sheet instead of McEachran I knew the 3 points were in the bag. They hate coming to GP. We never got out of 2nd gear but it was still more than enough.

Just got home. All i will say on the matter at the minute is they were s**t and we we got the job done. They came to kick us off the pitch and we overcame that and put those silly ****s to bed. There isnt a better feeling as a Bees fan IMO then beating those p****s and i fully enjoyed the afternoon even if we were in 2nd gear for most of the match.

They are c**p and Bidwell in a season or two will regret that decision he made. All they wanted to do was disrupt our game plan and whine about every little tackle whilst kicking our players up in the air.

Nothing better then seeing Brook Road 3/4 empty after 80min today. lol

I remember when we had to play brilliantly to win a west london Derby: today we played fine and won 3-0. We’ve come a long way

When I routinely read this report about an away match will be the time to be thinking about promotion.

Crap first half. Didn't really come out with any great tempo. They basically looked to stifle us and stop play with lots of free kicks, We should have gone ahead with our best move of the half but Benhrama chipped wide after being put through in the pen area.. All felt a bit flat, we faffed about a bit at the back and Moses and Jeanvier's passing was going a bit astray and we almost gave them a couple of chances. Second half we seemed to come out with a bit more oomph. We looked to get the ball forward in behind them and one ball over the top saw Watkins run past the CB and get shoved to the floor. Pen., Keeper attempted to put Maupay off but he calmly slotted it in the corner. After that we came to life, they opened up a bit and the football started to come. Benhrama could have scored almost straight after the goal, their keeper made a great save from a Dalsgaard header and eventually a sublime through ball from Sawyers saw Maupay skip past the onrushing keeper and calmly ping it across to Benhrama to smash into the empty net.. QPR threw on Matt Smith but they never really looked threatening. Marcondes and Canos came on and the confidence surged through the team, playing our way out of danger with quick one touch passing, Maupay shot wide when put through when maybe he could have crossed for the unmarked Marcondes but the third goal finally came after some more lovely possession football, Sergi smashing in with the aid of a bit of a deflection. QPR had absolutely nothing, I think their first shot on target was in injury time? The only way they were going to get anything was through us gifting them something or a set piece. First half that was possible but second half our concentration was top notch and we dealt with crosses into the box easily, Bentley confidently punching a fair few away. How this lot beat Leeds I'll never know! Was slightly disappointed we didn't bring Ogbene on at the end as I think him hammering it down the middle of the park would have scared the sh*t out of their defence. Was worried at HT but by in the end it was a bit of a stroll in the park. Need to take that second half into the next two away games now..

We had brought on Marcondes and Canos and the latter charged at them for our third. We didn’t need Ogbene, no need to be slightly disappointed. His time will come

Pretty much how I saw it. Was great seeing it empty out like that; we are really beginning to get on their tits and that’s all you can ask for.

They used to mock us as a pre-season friendly team: not any more. When we move into Lionel Road it’s a level playing field and then we’ll be picking up thier potential support left, right and centre.

Previously, when Smith came on you felt a little nervous and I’m still scarred after that 2-2 draw there last season, but this time there was no hope of them getting back into it. It was a relative stroll when we opened the scoring, our intensity lifted and they couldn’t handle us. Lumley pulled off an incredible save second half, one of the best I’ve seen from an opposing goalkeeper. Our second was a peach too - it wasn’t that easy to convert but the magic man delivered.

I’ll be controversial and say if Bidwell was with us we might have picked up more points than fielding makeshift left backs half the time for the past three years; let’s face it, he’s no Rico, but at least he manages to actually get out on the field.

Once we stop putting square pegs in round holes and grow some balls away from home, we’ll be more than okay.

Let’s see how smug Robert Elms is on Monday...

I was thinking of trying to sabotage his playlist with a few requests:-

“The Winner Takes it All “, “All over now”, “Celebrate Good Times” etc. “Hey Jude” is probably too obvious though.

Football was the winner today. Although nothing really came off it first half. There was only one team trying to play football.
Frightening that McClaren held the biggest job in English football.

Bidwell leaving his mark on NM after 2 seconds set the scene for the afternoon. QPR were physical and their main tactic was to stop us playing and try not too lose, their game plan seemed to be give the ball to Freeman or lump it long.

It led to a rather frantic first half as derby games often are, but as long as we got to half time 0-0 I felt the game would open up for us as we had the edge on them all through the half. As in many local derbies the only thing that really matters is to win and you could see the determination on the faces of the Bees to do this, less so I thought on theirs.

Second half once we got ahead the game evolved into a better quality game of football as we began to strut our stuff and they pushed forward more but the gulf in class between the two sides became ever more apparent and in the end a 3-0 win was about right. Canos’s delightfull third goal really was the icing on the cake and it was great to see three sides of GP in delerium whilst the fourth side evacuated.

It was really poetic to see at last how the tables have turned between the relative status of the two clubs. At GP of all places, the fulcrum for many long time supporters of the hatred of QPR.

Bunch of fouling ***** who’s only tactic was to try to kick us off the pitch and a pathetic ref let it all go. It was nice to see RS, OW and Barbet getting in his face and counting the fouls on their fingers and even NM waving the imaginary card although it was to no avail and he was on planet moron all game.

First half we got dragged into their crappy game and were unusually sloppy with our passing but second half was cake walk and could have been 6-7 if we had made the right decisons in front of goal.

The second goal was one of the best of the season.

I think we were 7/10 at a push but still could have smashed 6-7.

Bentley had a good game, punching everything away and good distribution and one great save when required.

Kamo must have ice in his veins, he never panics and just takes it and slides it to someone in space usually RS. It’s almost as if he says you have it and I will just sit here and look after you.

OW aid definitely playing himself back into it and canos picked up from the last 5-6 games when he came on.

It is shame we can’t sort the away form out as we are going to lose so many of these players in the summer, I know we build again but the whole teams seems to compliment itself perfectly.

today Dalsgaard, Jeanvier, and Barbett were certainly not adverse to getting their retaliation in first, or indeed paying back those who deserved it.
6 months ago NM would have got sent off having retaliated against the treatment he'd been receiving. Shows how much he has matured.

HD put one on the left sided midfielder in the second half who went down with a bloodied nose. As HD went past he clearly shouted something at him and as he trotted away wiped his plaster cast down his shorts to get rid of the blood! :sorted:

Yes, it was great to see us looking after ourselves yesterday, without generally over-stepping the boundary. The referee was incredibly lucky he didn't lose complete control early second half. His failure to book players for clearly bookable offences was bound to lead to the wronged players protecting themselves. It also increased frustration levels. Stroud truly is absolute sh*te!

I don’t think we were that great to be honest, I think we were just fortunate that QPR are *****. How on earth were they ever in the top half?

First half was a non-event and at half-time I thought the game had 0-0 written all over it. Seems to be the case in home games at the moment though that, it doesn’t matter for which team, it’s not until a goal goes in somewhere that we come out of first gear. Once Maupay’s penalty went in the result was never really in doubt, but after being permanently scarred from Loftus Road last season, even at 2-0 up with 5 minutes to go I wasn’t totally comfortable, especially once they brought Smith on. Luckily he had a quiet cameo.

Maybe I’m just being a bit cynical and our performances against Blackburn and Hull have spoilt me, but we’ll need to be a bit better than that if we’re to come away with anything at Boro next week.

The highlights on YouTube didn't show NM being taken out straight from the kick off but do show a slow motion of Bidwell elbowing him in the chest. His reputation goes in front of him but as mentioned elsewhere he is really working hard to ignore it.

Stroud is a ***t without a doubt. All those fouls and he can't get his card out quickly enough to book Romaine for kicking the ball away. Lectured Dan when chucking objects back into his goal thrown by those retards in hoops!

Good performance overall and if some of those early draws had been wins we'd be pushing for the play offs. We bossed games like Stoke and Villa and came away with a point when even their fans admitted to me afterwards we deserved all 3.

Hopefully we can see an end to the runs of wins and losses next season and show some consistency. We are an outstanding football team on our day.

Terrible first half turned out all rosy in the end with an entertaining second. First was the scrappiest I've seen in a long time at GP as Rangers only had one thing in mind. I was confident we would win but really, how p*** poor are they, one of the worst I've seen this season? Couldn;t string a pass together and apart from Freeman have no-one who had any composure on the ball. Very weak ref who should have had the yellow out much earlier than he did. But football wins again and after we got the first, it was plain sailing and could have had 4 or 5. Good atmosphere at the GP too so all in all a top afternoon.

Yeh, I know but they were really sh*tting themselves when we countered quickly and would have been quite fun to see!

I love what we do when we are 1 or 2 gaols up. Most teams take off an attacker and replace them with a defensive midfielder, we take off two attackers at once and replace them with two equally attack minded players and go looking for more goals.

As for the performance you have to put it into context of the game, as a local derby against the Ra Ra's it was always going to be a bit frantic and intense and over the 90 minutes we kept our heads , avoided conceding any goals and gradually worked out way back to our expansive style of play. For me it was a very good and sensible performance over the whole game.

I notice the Sky Sports match report referred to us as “Thomas Frank’s Hounslow charges”.

****ers. I look forward to Tottenham being described as “Pochettino’s Haringey side...”

It hasn't happened yet, but with 12 games still to play it ought to happen sooner or later: when it finally comes about (touch wood), will this be the first time ever that Brentford has had four players each scoring a double-figure number of goals?

Sorry, I’m confused (easily achieved, I know.)
I’m going to guess the answer is either yes, or no.

Not sure that we will lose the key players. The war chest is pretty substantial and there will be a significant impetus for a big push next year. I know money talks but we signed a lot of these players on long deals for just this scenario. There will be huge pressure but I believe in the MB plan and his ambition

No. Happened before. 1929/30, 1934/35, 1935/36 for example.
