Yeah, it's not his job to write good news for us. If there are issues I have no problem with them being reported. It's also the only negative line in that article.

Hopefully the club have been working on these issues to minimise them. At the very least our defensive mistakes and corners have improved. Hopefully we can get back to attacking well also.

"One source close to the dressing room" hmm don't think that'll go down too well with the club and it's "No dickheads" rule. It's a time for unity not un named sources chatting to Journos looking for a juicy bit of copy.
The article was okay and rightly highlights the key injuries etc not so sure about the frustration and anger angle. Of course pressure is building with the run of results and the squad will no doubt be disappointed with recent results but to me anyway their appears a focus and team unity and plenty of self belief, it just now needs to transfer into results and points as we reach the business end of the season....

He’s in an awkward position because he needs to find original and interesting copy whilst not biting the hand that feeds him - too hard!

Today's piece

How Brentford succeeded where Norwich and Watford failed

More of a run through of the key moments of the season than an in-depth analysis of the comparison between them, but enjoyed it nonetheless.

Yep. I think Jay Harris has done a decent job over the last year, TBH. There volume of information you get from the GPG (whether between the lines or not) means it’s rare that you see anything elsewhere before you do on here but he’s come up with a few nice nuggets and I enjoy his analysis. He’s certainly town himself into as well, not just covering he first team but also the B team and women’s…

Yes indeed, he was at the B team's London cup final for example, when he could probably have just watched on YouTube and written a worthwhile summary from his armchair. Can't imagine the media seats were packed for that one.
I've enjoyed what he has written.
