All good to hear. Hope we have a video to watch, sooner or later.
One small gripe. The report on the OS - noticed this before on B team reports - is always written as eg "the fourth goal would be...", rather the fourth goal was...". Everything in the report "would be" rather than "was". In other words, it seems that any match action might have happened, instead of that it actually did. I know it's the author's style, and preferences and all that, but it grates a bit with me. However, I'm not an English Scholar...!

YES! obviously it's just one game but he looks like he's got all the right attributes.. He's got the energy of a young Sergi but he also seems to have the final product and decision making.. He's only been here a couple of weeks but looked like he'd been playing with us for months the way he was linking up with the rest of the team. If he can keep that up and we can improve him then we've got a hell of a prospect. And he's only 18...
Great report. Appreciate you writing it up.

As we don't play typically with a Number 10, where would you see his attributes fitting in the First XI's usual 4-3-3 line-up? Up top, or one of the wider players? Or in the Marcondes role?

He played mainly as a right sided winger in Iceland I think. I think we changed up formation last night due to lack of midfielders, although potentially that's a system we may end up playing in the first team with Ghoddos preferring a no.10 role..

Oh, one more player who deserves a mention was Balcombe. Had a great game, made some fantastic saves and distribution looked much improved..

This is great to hear. When he disappeared from the Under 21's there was a worry that he was injured again.

Distribution better than Daniels and heading towards Raya?

Could he make first team?

Great to hear! Sounds as if he is quite a prospect, concern is that he is not our player. I assume his loan is a straightforward loan without any right to buy. Should your enthusiasm be shared by the club then best we get him signed up quickly to a long contract.

Apparently, good news then as .... per OS 5 Oct : BFC confirm the signing of Valgeir Valgeirsson for Brentford B on a loan deal until the end of the 2020/21 season, with an option of a permanent transfer from Icelandic side HK Kópavogs.

Ta. One thing I forgot to mention was that we only had three subs.. No sign of either Maghoma or Hammar which I guess means they're with the first team squad...
Gustav Mogensen and Lachlan Brook injured?

Mogensen is out for a while.

Brook, probably his fitness levels. So catching up with training schedules etc

The PNE and Bees supporters attending the Corinthians last week may have been attending legally (although definitely not in the spirit of allowing small club loyal attendance)
Sorry, i have no idea what you mean by this, the match wasn’t sold out so no “small club loyals” missed out?

And Cor-Cas welcomed quite a few new spectators, plenty of whom (myself included) will go again...

think i've seen mentions but not really seen official acknowledgment re: Gustavo. that's a real pity - he was starting to look very good, and i was hoping he might go on loan this season to make the next step...

OMG Brentford have royally screwed the Icelandic team the same way West Ham have screwed Brentford over the Benrahma transfer. Or maybe its a new normal

Same here. Been twice this season now. It’s not stopped anyone else going. And I’ll definitely go again. So all extra income for them.

Missed the point, legal but socially irresponsible especially the PNE fans travelling down. Congregating in crowds is a definite no no in this pandemic crisis.

“Congregating in crowds...” sorry but I think you are overreacting here. There was an attendance - outdoors - of 417 in a ground that holds 2,000. There was no lack of social distancing... just people trying to act as normal as possible in these mad times.

Most of the first round games haven't been played yet so god knows when we'll get round to our 3rd round match! Looking at the draw we could play one of

Corinthian Casuals first team
Cray Valley (Paper Mills)
Harrow Borough
Glebe

but prob not likely to happen until New year at this rate..

The London FA are apparently still keen to play this out with matches planned to resume from 17th May. FA rulings say the competition will need to be completed by 31st May, so it will be a bit of a squeeze. A lot of teams have withdrawn and some more probably still will. Originally a deadline of 22nd March was given to withdraw but this was brought forward to today.

Sides still in after withdrawals are:
2nd round
Cockfosters v Clapton or Watford
Redbridge or Welling United v Balham or AFC Wimbledon
Erith Town v Charlton Athletic u23’s
Fisher v Hanwell Town
Glebe v Cray Valley PM
Sporting Bengal United or Tooting & Mitcham United v Leyton Orient

3rd Round
A. Cockfosters or Clapton or Watford v Redbridge or Welling United or Balham or AFC Wimbledon
B. Glebe or Cray Valley PM v Brentford B
C. Haringey Borough v Fisher or Hanwell Town
D. Sporting Bengal United or Tooting & Mitcham United or Leyton Orient v Erith Town or Charlton Athletic u23’s

Semi final
Winners A v Winners B
Winners C v Winners D

That's why they have left the resumption until then.

I suspect Cray Valley might also pull out - being in the Isthmian they have no football at the moment and would have to honour player contracts to stay in and play - would be surprised if they did that for potentially one game. Glebe would be a decent trip - good bar where they have done a lot of work with outside tables etc. Gary Alexander in charge and Charlie MacDonald playing for them.

Brentford B will no longer compete in this season's London FA Senior Cup and the Middlesex FA Senior Challenge Cup ahead of both competitions restarting.

Due to Brentford B's current fixture schedule for the rest of the campaign it is not possible to commit to the completion of the tournaments, therefore the decision has been made to withdraw from this season's competitions. The Club will look to re-enter both competitions during the 2021/22 season.
