Love Said, but “humble” off the pitch??!!
Do you remember some of his Twitter videos in his last year with us!!!
A particular one from his holiday was anything but ”humble”!!! 😀
You've only got to listen to him. But yes, that video was very much giving it the big one. I suspect its his agent playing to his percieved marketing base...

Said speaking positively about our club here , nice to read.

Questioned about Brentford, he said: Ils m'ont tout donné. C'est un peu ma famille. Je ne l'oublierai jamais.

He singled out the consideration he was shown by the club when his father died, management telling him to take his time dealing with his loss and to return only when he felt ready.

Asked about his gift of money to the staff, he was clearly embarrassed and said that it was something between him and the club. He insisted that he had not made the gesture for the publicity.

Impressive.

You knew he would score as soon as he got the goal in his sights.

Shame he got booed..

I dont agree with booing any players. But he appeared to play on when we had a player down injured.

The majority of our fans appreciate what he has done for Brentford.

He was being booed from his first touch but also got a nice round of applause for his goal.

People were not booing him in my stand. In fact got a nice and polite round of applause when his name was read out. And in fairness, he did not celebrate his goal either.

I heard booing on BT from his first touch, it wasn't too loud, but could definitely be heard.

That’s good, in the West stand they were…not the majority but didn’t expect to hear any

I was in the North Stand today.

Very respectful audience and we enjoyed the match. Lots of families and youngsters in the front rows as well.

So he got booed. He scored against us, which is much worse!

Booing? Crikey, the SJW activists on here who think we should be cheering the opposition will be gutted :(

Does this mean we’re now officially the most hated club in the Premier League? 🤓

....when their lot sang...'he left cause you're sh*t'.....after he scored.....I and few others in E115 gave them some back.....pleased to report it wasn't well received by WH faithful.....no to all aways extracting the urine at our home.

Moyes has successfully coached all the entertainment value from him. Apart from dynamic finishing 😢
But he looks more of an all-round team player.

Agreed, and so important for the prem. But from a viewers perspective wanting to be entertained by our team it’s a step back …for me.

Perhaps with the “New” less ostentatious Said we might have reached the promised land a year earlier.

Agree. When we look back at the little magician's bees performances we tend to forget how he often lost possession in our half trying to go on a dribble instead of the simple pass. However it was worth it for the overall impact he had.

Yes agree, I guess its all part of his development. Was a bit of a maverick here, but more of a team player now. Even the best players like Ronaldo have to tweak their game to progress. Great player for us, he will just get better imo.

Man of the match for the Hammers in their 2-0 friendly win against Atalanta yesterday.

Could well be playing himself into a regular starting place.

He got a good round of applause when his name was read out, but there was a smattering of booing every time he touched the ball throughout the match.

Thought he played excellently and you could see the value of Moyes’ coaching into him a lot of defensive positioning work without losing his natural attacking flair. Big season for him ahead once his team mates spot him more often.
