What a chap....the day he goes will be a very sad one ....we will probably never have a centre forward in our history as good as him before or again ;)
I fully agree, best player we have ever purchased imo, in my life time. He is the special one. Would love to see him in the prem in a Brentford shirt.

All the more remarkable when you think he didn't play for Posh from last March's lockdown onwards, then less than a week of pre-season with us...

Ive been thinking and discussing with my sons and we think Ivan Toney has been up to now has been unlucky, don’t jump onto the keyboard yet


Not like Watkins Maupay Benraham or any other goal scorers



The reason we have come to this opinion is he’s NOT HAD THE FANS IN BRENTFORD COMMUNITY STADIUM LIONEL ROAD to show him how much we appreciate what his goals mean to us all

Wasn't his best game today. Sometimes feel he's trying too hard. Bit frustrated? Tries to play the killer ball/flick too much and he's far too deep/wide at times with this new system. Not sure we're currently getting the best out of him.

Agree with that. Great thing about IT is his excellent decision making & his prodigious work rate. Plenty of the latter but thought he took on a couple of difficult shots today when colleagues were in better positions. He & Fors didn't really gel today & his frustration was perceptible with the usual quota of 50:50 battles with the Centre half going against him🤨. The bloke has been incredible for us this season & is certainly entitled to a below par effort now & then. He'll bounce back against Cardiff but will be interesting to see if Thomas persists with the two strikers.

Unless we get 50M for him and buy a better version as we have done consistently for 10 years. So I hope we don't break the bank for a player unproven at Prem level.
Sounds like you think some other sucker will pay £50 mil for our Toney who is also unproven at Prem level. They say that the majority of the world are fools, so you may be correct!

How rejection by Newcastle has fuelled Brentford star Ivan Toney's bid to return to the top-flight.........

Let's hope we get promoted then, because after reading that, he has no desire to play in the Championship for another year.

Probably his poorest game yesterday - everything seemed to bounce off him and was easily handled by Millwalls back 3. Mind you when we play as slowly from the back as we did we do t look like getting in behind which is where most of his goals have Co.e from.

I don’t expect Toney to be with us next season even if we are promoted. I hope to see him play for us sometime before he leaves and wish him well in his future career if , as I expect he will , he appreciates and voices what Brentford have done for him in developing his talent. To me it is rewarding to hear praise of our coaching team from the players who have benefited from it. Olly Watkins , as example , was transformed at Griffin Park ,which we all witnessed , and now he plays for our country. As a Bees fan that gives me pride and I am extremely happy when he references this in interviews. It is treated as a joke our no dickheads rule but it works. As a spectator it is impossible to know which players really listen and learn from the coaches but it is clear that if you start with the wrong player it will never work. The worst recent example of this , and he was only a loan , was Saido Berahino who loads of potential although we could all see the attitude problem. However Stoke who obviously don’t have a NDH rule paid £12 mill for him.
Keep it up Ivan and when you move we will wish you well and be confident that our team will continue to recruit players that can be developed and maybe we will be in a position for them to realise their full potential still playing for us

Irrespective of whether we go up or not, I believe Toney will stay another season. When we sign players I am sure we have an unwritten rule that players give us at least two seasons as with our history of developing young players and moving them on to bigger clubs has been an incentive to them and their agent that the player signs for us.

If we go up he'll be here next season, if we don't he won't.

He's not really a young player though - he's 25. He'll be wanting to make up for lost time. Whether that's the right call, only time will tell.

I suspect we will need the money if we don't go up. His sale is inevitable and the reason why the club let the Mail run that interview. Column inches = £££

Not a hope, I'm afraid.

He's 25 and is ready to play in the PL now. We won't stand in his or Rico's way.

Think the whole pandemic/ESL thing will have a major impact on the summer window vis-a-vis sales from/to PL clubs.

Toney will want to go but I'm not sure this will be the type of window people think it will be, given the more modest outlay in summer 2020.

Aye, you may be right. I didn't factor his age in the equation.

When I am old and pissing in my incontinence pads at the nursing home like clockwork. I am sure my carer (as she feeds me my liquidised all day breakfast via a drip) will chuckle as I regale a story where as a season ticket holder, there was that one season where we had a star striker at our club who played the whole season he was there, banged in 30+ goals and I never saw him play once live and he left before I got to my seat.

Rico quite rightly deserves a bump up the pyramid as I think he has done nearly 5 years at Brentford and thus deserves parole.

Unless we have serious money pugged away from selling Benrahma & Watkins (not sure how much has been needed to subsidise us during covid), then it's likely that selling Ivan would be our best chance of being top of the table competitive next year, provided the money was spent wisely. Likely to be 3 or 4 key players' shoes to fill and replacing them with untried youngsters won't cut it.

Obviously, we hope that's not needed and he plays for us in the PL next season.

Ivan does seem to have been well controlled by those Championship defenders with a depth of experience, I think he'd need to show he can manage to outwit them before being a serious consideration for the Premier League.

would agree with this. He gets easily frustrated too. Personally think he could do with another season at this level but doubt it'll happen..

Todays performance just shows why it's reported we could well be asking £35 Million for him if we don't get promotion, Fully deserved MOM award, any club looking at him today would have seen a man who is a non stop runner, not afraid to defend and more than able supply assists that lead to goals, plus his outstanding goal scoring record so far this season, although not today, but could have had a couple, he is an asset to any team and I think he could well make another step up just like Ollie did, A lot of Prem teams will be watching him closer than ever now.

Feels a bit like he’s a cricketer stuck in the ‘nervous nineties’. Here’s hoping for a soft penalty early on against Rotherham and then he can go on and fill his boots.

Actually thought he was having an average game up until the sending off - he then kicked into beast mode. His defending from set pieces is ridiculously good.

Brilliant 2nd half and probably MoM. Really should have scored the one on one as he had so much time to place it wide of the keeper but didn't prove costly in the end. Hope he scores on Tuesday and then rested for Watford
