4-0.

It's in the card. Tonight result will give the team that extra 10-20% boost like Chester did nearly 3 decades ago.

Watkins, Said x 2 and Josh.

Yes, hopefully it'll give them that extra energy which we've been missing last couple of games.. Just hope it doesn't make them all tense up a bit..

Having supported The Bees for 56 years now I would normally be very nervous now with two games remaining.. But I'm not...I am very calm :tongue:Because I know we have got this.
'' Its Brentford Innit'' will not be applicable this time.. You Beeeeessss....

I have always considered us to be serial chokers who never turn up when it matters, but not this side, not this season, not these players and staff. I think this is going to happen. 0-2 Josh and Said.

Are you nuts? This is a side battling for points, just like Udders were today and they have a decent manager too, Appreciate the positivity, but a 4-0 prediction is mental imo.

This will be another game like Preston I feel. I think and hope we will sneak it 2-1.

Stoke aren't safe yet so the team should prepare for a battle. We might win but we won't be playing them off the park.

I'm sure TF will prepare the team in the right way

Nope their manager basically said on Wednesday night they believe they already have sufficient points. More so with Hull playing Luton tomorrow.

A deflection off Watkins arse in the 93rd minute will be more than enough for me.

However, the boys must be on cloud 9 knowing their destiny is now in their own hands for the first time this season - Pontus will be
a giant tomorrow.

Even if by some strange reasoning we only get a point, I strongly fancy us Tuesday - There may well be a big crowd around The Griffin on Tuesday night.

I think a scoring draw.
Then back to the theatre of screams for a whole Alton Towers of roller coasters on Wednesday.

0-2 Bees and we need to win because I wouldn’t put it past QPR to lose 38-0 or something on the final day.

Ermmm.....Pass ?
One for the Notts Florist fans:

xG stats* suggest a 2-1 win for Brentcelona

xJ stats** if the result above is achieved is one billion, trillion, gazillion

* plucked out of the air
** expected jism

Just praying that the match report after our game reads:

“Brentford moved into a Championship automatic promotion place / second place in the Championship table after a comfortable victory over Stoke City...”

Continues for 15 pages about Stoke being threatened by relegation and how they are a big club because Stanley Matthews played for them.

There are only something like 6 permutations of results in a thousand which could now see Stoke go down, so they're safe enough.

And it may be that their players, who seem to be an unprofessional lot on the whole, will be "on the beach" by the time we play them.

But as someone said, they've a good very manager who will be desperate to finish the season as strongly as possible.

More to the point, he's not one of these managers like eg Wenger or Warnock who says, "This is the way we play, so just go out and beat the other lot".

Rather he's known for setting up his team, formation and tactics specifically for each game and according to the opposition he's facing.

Of course, knowing what you want from your team is one thing, their ability and willingness to put it into practice is another.

Meaning that while Bees should clearly be good enough to beat them (stress the "should").

But we should also be prepared for a battle against a side which is set up to negate us and on a good day be capable of it.

I'll settle for 0-0 but not sure my heart will.

I really don't understand why some are thinking a draw at Stoke will be good enough.

Because it might be. Obviously everyone wants us to win, but if you'd told us that we have to beat a potentially relegated Barnsley at home on the last game of the season to clinch promotion, we'd have all taken it.

Very very tough game. There recent form has been good. Hope we say calm and don't rush today.
Stoke beat Brum and Barnsley, lost to Leeds, Wigan and 'Boro, drew with Bristol and Reading. Dropped 13 points out of last 21. Bees dropped zero out of last 21. They'd like a point from us from but its not life or death to the Potters.

I'm not saying we'll stat the game thinking a draw is OK, but it would be interesting (!!) to see how we would play if it was a draw going into the last 10 mins.....
I reckon we wouldn't go "gung ho"/all out for a win, but would protect the point to make sure It's still in our hands on Wednesday.....

So the pubs going to have two nights when they are full, but Wednesday could be the loudest

Brentford have never before beaten Stoke in an away league match, failing to secure a victory in all 12 of their previous visits (D4 L8).

Stoke are not going to be as easy as some are predicting, it's one of those end of season games,they will fight us all the way, but I think our tremendous fitness levels and strong bench will see us over the line, Just!!.

Granted magnitude of the game, I'm hoping for a 2-0 to the mighty bees. Said and Ollie to find the net.

First ever competitive Bees match on my Birthday (unless someone knows different). Has to be a 2-0 win, 1 in each half.

Ditto boro, Leeds and many others, they have all fallen in recent seasons.

We are better than stoke, that is all that matters.

It will be good enough, get a point up there and it is still in our hands as we only have to beat the team bottom of the league,

It your wildest dreams you wouldn’t ha e wishes for a better situation.

Can we stop this negativity for Christ sake.

We are the best team in the league about to play two of the worst, if we turn up and play to our ability we are going up.
