Has the GPG Collective decided who we're going to sell him to yet?
He is locked in my cellar and I am not answering calls from (according to my phone) "Phil Giles".

Pushing 20 goals already this season. Someone must have the stats - do we have to go back to Owusu for 20+?
Clayton Donaldson 2012/13 = 24 goals

Just thinking this while reading the Benrahma thread - it's hard to know what to say there, cos it's all been said and it's obvious - "wow he's bloody good, unplayable, etc"

Benrahma took his goal so well too, and it was vital to how the match ended up going... But don't overlook Maupay's contribution to that goal. He won the ball back in our half and carried it forward through a challenge - really strong powerful play which Said (with Kamo's help) capitalised on.

Wasn't that look at the Rovers supporters after he scored just what we've come to expect? I cannot condone it but I love it.

I'm sure Charlie Mac got 20+ at least once?

Exactly - Maups dropped a bit deeper, picked it up and beat the first man. Playing “between the lines” meant more space and angles to pick out the supporting onrushing players, in this case the simply unplayable Brama

Strange term 'unplayable'. I used it in a report on one of my son's games years ago. The parent of the boy I was praising got the right 'ump! Thought I meant he shouldn't have been playing.

True, but we all know the meaning in Said’s case yesterday!! Did you notice when Said ran at them straight from kick-off and beat three and then beat one again for fun??

Very encouraging words from Neal today.

"“For me it’s easy. Brentford gave me a chance and I feel really confident in this team. When I start something I want to finish it so we have to keep on building. The future looks bright. When I came here I could see it was a club on the up. We had a bad spell when Dean Smith left the club but we are on the right track. Good things will happen in the future so it’s a good club to be part of. If you ask any player they will tell you they want to play in the top league. That’s what we are working towards. I feel this club will make it. I want to help them get there and then see what happens.”

Good on you young man. I know it doesn't always work out like that when bigger teams open their wallets, but sounds like he genuinely appreciates our faith in him and intends to repay it.

Yep - he doesn't strike me as the sort to write a Spanish love letter. Someone will come in with massive dough in the summer & I expect he'll go, but no-one can doubt his effort & contribution to the cause while he's here. Pity others didn't show the same determination and concentration in our poor run. If only this bunch of players hadn't had that god-awful crappy run for 2-3 months. I really feel we could beat anyone in this league at the moment, but sadly, have left ourselves too much to do.

All the other clubs fans might say how much they hate him, but they would love him in their team.

Unfortunately I can’t see him staying after the summer, but he will leave with my blessing (until he plays against us, gets one of our centre back sent off, wins and scores a soft penalty and then celebrates in front of Ealing Road).

There’s much more to his game other than scoring goals, he cones deep to get the ball and start moves and has a good eye for a pass to another Beex player

For me it's not just that he's a pain in the arse. He knows when to dish it out, he knows how to wind players up. His temperament is that of a player a lot older than he is.

You just know he will do all of that as well, don't you?

I think he believes the team can still get there this season.

We have a system that works for us, a settled first eleven with 3 or 4 players who can fit in to cover most positions, and a team playing with confidence within a technical framework that Thomas has intrigued and is tweaking and improving. Seems a tough ask to make up the Gap but then an awful lot of games to go. Once in play offs a total lottery it has to be said

The other thing to consider is just how tight this group of young players are. It may not count for much but playing in a good team with your mates must have some value?

Everything depends on the number of points that will be needed to occupy sixth place. The year we made the play-offs we had 78 points. Wolves had the same number of points but missed out on goal difference. The year before that 72 points had been enough, and the year before that Leicester City made the play-offs with just 68 points.

For us to make 68 points we need just a further 31 from 17 games - very doable.

What's needed, therefore, is a steady stream of wins on our part and/or any two of Derby, Bristol City and Middlesborough to go through a bad patch. Stranger things have happened.

We have a long way to go before we can even think of the PO's. Lets concentrate on hitting mid table and sitting above QPR again. Then we can enjoy the rest of the season. I still dont like seeing our name sitting in 17th place ;)

Neal is integral to our efforts and i think we will see him in red and white for a little while longer.

Got a getting that if we were where we'd like to be next January, we wouldn't sell him for all the tea in China.
I really hope we make a conscious decision/effort to try and keep hold of the current core of this present team in the summer. I suspect we have got reasonable cash in the bank in terms of covering losses and therefore FFP shouldn't be a problem.

Of course it's easier said than done when players/agents have their heads turned with big offers but if we finish the season like a steam train it will be such a shame to see this group dismantled rather than added to.

Seem to remember we said the same stuff last season. I hope we can hold the squad together and stop the stupid runs of poor form.

I think there will be Premier League interest in the summer which may change things.

An oblique argument to extend Barbet’s contract?
When last at Jersey Rd., I couldn’t help but notice the 4 x French registered cars, never mind the quality of the motors! How far they’ve all come!

As I understand it the cars could not have been owned by players since they live in the UK and hence their cars must have UK plates.

That's completely true... except that it's hardly enforced. Only if they get pulled for a motoring offence and the OB do some digging is it in question. If they have an address in France, then they claim they are still residents there. Of course, it could also have been scouts or agents or...

I'm surprised there hasn't been any talk about him being watched for possible inclusion in the French U21 Euros squad for this summer, as he is eligible. He won two U21 caps in 2014 and scored one goal.

Congrats to Neal - 20 for the season already and it’s only the first week of February!
