Watched most of the second half.. Real battling display from the Bs. Seem to have lost most of our CBs to injury and Russel went off in the second half too.. Aris put out about 3 different 11s across the game and we had to rely on Sam Saunders coming on on 60s minutes or so!.

We were obviously determined to get something out of it though and worked really hard against what looked quite strong oppositon. Two great goals from Brook, the second a real beauty from the edge of the box. Crama got the winner and NYC should probably have got a hat-trick but was denied when put through 3 or 4 times. Gordon had a good game as did the trialist no.7 on the left wing. Trevitt had another good game in midfield and Sam Saunders actually made quite a difference slotting in in front of the defence and moving the ball quickly..

V pleased for the lads to finally get a result, most of them collapsed to the floor at the end of the game they'd put so much into it... Think Farls and Saunds will be v happy with that!

The actual squad we have out there looks pretty weak? Might sound harsh but it seems like only NYC is the only serious prospect out of the lot?

That's def harsh. Stand out player in that squad for me is Brook. He's got real quality on the ball and seems to have gone up a notch so far this season. Trevitt looks a good prospect too in midifeld, Gordon is v dependable and the CBs are all of a decent standard I think..

That was a great performance by the team. Still swelteringly hot for mid november & having played the afternoon before against Rodina the team looked exhausted & when you consider Aris had at least 30 plus players at their disposal you realise how proud it made me feel as being the only Brentford fan in the ground. They thoroughly deserved the victory with Aris 2nd goal looking miles off side. Then we played the masterstroke bringing on our secret weapon, Sam Saunders who dominated midfield & we scored our winner we celebrated like we won the cup, remember that. At the final whistle the boys sank to their knees. This was no holiday in the sun for them. Look forward to when Neil & his team return soon. All Bees fans can rest assured they have done the club proud with such a young team, including you Sam who still looks as fit as a fiddle.
One very happy Bees fan from Chlorakas, Cyprus

Interesting, given the lineup is reported as:

Brentford B: Rees, Crama, Russell (Trialist, 60), Jefferies, Hercules, Syla (Young-Coombes, 60) Trialist, Trevitt, Gordon, Brook, Adams

Subs: Trialist, Hockenhull, Racic

Yep but the earlier report also said Sam came on too.

Why did Aris have 30 players and make such wholesale changes?
The heat? Commentator mentioned they’d a game coming up and wanted to give some players minutes and look at squad players. He was totally confused by who was playing at the end, particularly when sammy Saunders came on!
