This guy is just awesome, his hold up play is just going up and up a level every game, and if we can keep him fit he's going to score a LOT of goals!!

Yes, I just love how good our coaching staff are. Ollie did the same last season - between August and October he just turned into a proper #9. Toney's all-round game looks better already compared to Wycombe or Huddersfield - the link-up play, positioning etc.

Peterboro fans told us this one but he's also brilliant in our box defending set pieces. What a player!

Look the real deal. I was surprised to find out he's 5ft10, assumed he was taller based on how much he wins in the air!

I think clubs can be overly cautious about signing from the lower leagues. Hence the lack of a stampede for Ollie and Said (although we got our money in the end:)).
Does credit have to go to the club or at least some of it? Clayton, Grey, Hogan, Maupay, Ollie. The list goes on. Strikers playing to our type of play.

I read somewhere that he won more headers in his own box from defending corners and free kicks than any other player in league one last season.

Reminds me a bit of one of my favourite ever strikers, Didier Drogba (and not just because of the ponytail).

He has a similar presence. Constant handful for defenders. A proper 9.

He can play off the shoulder and run in behind. He can drop deep and win the flick-ons. He will shoot from basically any position, too. Opposition just don’t know what to do with him because he is a very complete striker. And to top it all off, he is so dangerous in their air from set pieces.

I listen to Darragh MacAnthony’s podcast and he was basically saying exactly the same thing. He honestly can’t believe that a prem club didn’t make a serious enquiry about Toney. That said, Darragh clearly has a lot of time for Brentford and the way we do business and was more than happy to sell to us, knowing full well that he’ll probably double his money in a year or so.

He's never 5"10, dunno why google has that. If you see him next to Norgaard who's about 6"1, he's slightly taller than him.

If it helps, Fifa 21 has him at 6'2 :D

His first goal, last night, demonstrated his predatory instinct. He was watching Henrik (and the defensive line) as it was obvious what he was going to do and as soon as he let fly, Ivan was on his way, so he'd be ready to pounce on any rebound. The finish itself, hit first time, was excellent.

The finish was very clean and not at all easy - he made it look like it was though.

Also interesting that he said that the analysis pointed to the fact that the keeper is a prolific at parrying shots.

Left or right footed? Had thought he was r-f, but after last night not so sure. Very accomplished, far from straightforward, finish with his left. Will have to watch him more closely. Maybe just two-footed. Anybody know?

There was that effort on Saturday, too, which sliced wide of the post; he struck that with his left as well.

Start of season - value about £6m
Last week - value about £10-£15m
Tonight - value about £15-£20m.

And I'm not even sure he's fully fit!!! If he carries on like this, he will be £40m by the end of the season. What a strike rate!
I’m getting worried 😟
At this rate we’re going to be offered £50m for him in January !!!!!

Finishing superb, hold up play superb and work-rate superb. Seems like we have hit the jackpot once again.

I also like how he reacts to his team mates. Applauding efforts rather than complaining when he isn't played in when perhaps in a better position.

When did a Bees player score two or more goals in 3 consecutive games?
Wonder if he be more valuable than Ollie when he is sold.

Yes listened to that this morning think he said + 1 mill if we go up +1mill if we stay up +1 mill if he’s top goal scorer in championship + 10% sell on.Darragh is a bit gobby but l still find him a good listen.

See, there are a few things I don't understand about football. A lot, actually. And now there's another:

Why didn't some club like Palace or Brighton go to Posh and offer them a straight £10m up front - if not last season, then certainly this summer?

I mean, there must have been lots of clubs watching him, his quality is blindingly obvious, he passes the "No Dickheads" test and he's obviously ambitious.

If nothing else, the fact that Bees were interested should have alerted them, so they could nip in like a tribe of hyenas stealing an antelope kill from a lone cheetah.

Bizarre.
Surely there's an argument that we should have been first choice for him anyway - for the same reason that Maupay chose us over Brighton, and Mbeumo turned down Marseille. He had a clear route in to the team here and we have the track record of improving players and so on. Sitting on the bench at Palace or Newcastle - after you get replaced by some expensive loanee after you don't score for 2 or 3 games - is good for the bank balance but maybe not good for long term prospects.

Maybe it's fanciful to think he'd have turned down mega money if the offer had been there, but hopefully this works out better for all concerned.

Toney has already had a spell of being bought by Newcastle and then getting barely a sniff of first team action.

There's also an argument that if Posh were offered £10m up front by someone in the PL, that's where he would have gone - remember, the clubs have a say in these things, too.

Either way, and whether acceptable to IT or not, no PL club seems to have made a serious offer which might have blown us out of the water.

And these clubs may come to regret their lack of foresight when BFC are demanding "Watkins money" for him in another season or two, or (worse for them) he's banging in goals against them in a Bees shirt.

Didn’t Said have a similar flurry of goals last season? One was a hat trick, so I guess there could have been a blank as well.
Saïd was a 3, 1, 2. 👍
