Brentford Nylons is laying it down for the entitled Villan glory-hunters.
It could be the only season when 6/7 clubs could simultaneously run a promo and relegation thread after every round of games. Most peculiar lg this.
Sounds like we've cost them some season ticket revenue today and causes their best striker and manager to turn on eachother from that forum... Brilliant lolI'm fed up of Pulis and Gibson, both of them are dinosaurs in a modern game. When you watch a team like Brentford today they are everything you want to see on the football pitch, they get the ball down and play, they had pace, movement and flair right across their midfield and front 3. I'd much rather watch them every week and finish mid table then watch us trying to *** house our way to promotion.
Another one to the collection...
From the Sheffield United Pre-Match ThreadBrentford fans can say whatever they like, frankly. They are the most remarkable team I've ever seen and the Championship is very lucky to have them. If there's any justice they'll get in the play offs and beat someone like us in the final so their incredible football and philosophy can finally have the Premier League platform it deserves
Quite right too. There's a Blunt who knows his football, we are by far the greatest team to have ever graced the face of the Earth. I only know he's taking the p1ss because if he was serious, he wouldn't have said the Premier League, he would have surely said the Champions League is the platform our silky style of play deserves lol lol But still, credit where credit is due, a Blunt with a sense of humour which must surely be a rare thing for those inner city inbred folk from the Steel City who like to attack innocent para-Olympians on crutches outside their ground."Brentford fans can say whatever they like, frankly.

oh my bad **** em, scummy bastards !!He's taking the p1ss!!!! There's a couple of condescending references to Brentfordalona on there. I think it's got a good ring to it and maybe this is what MB was referring to on Twitter Satruday night about changing our name lol
*IF*...then we would meet them in the semis not final, Blunts having finished 3rd and us 6thNotwithstanding all that, a Bees-Blades playoff final would be fascinating for trivia freaks as it would pair up the two teams with the worst records in the history of the playoffs.
Still prefer Spartak Hounslow myself...He's taking the p1ss!!!! There's a couple of condescending references to Brentfordalona on there. I think it's got a good ring to it and maybe this is what MB was referring to on Twitter Satruday night about changing our name lol
Im going to put this out there. I hope oe they crumble. Wilder made a comment after the first Steel City Derby saying they were punching above their weight and had dominated a team with a massive budget. They have stockloaded their team with forwards since. Hogan Madine Clark are not cheap. It was just a crass comment. Couldnt a sh*t what their fans think, I've seen them enough on the box to say their style of football is crap.He's taking the p1ss!!!!

The Brentford defeat was embarrassing. Boro were made to look distinctly second rate by a half decent footballing side.
Yet the Bees are untypical of other teams in this league.
They have half a dozen top ball players in their ranks who can rip you to shreds with their slick dribbling and passing moves. Few other teams can make such claims
Boro might not have to endure the same type of football test throughout the rest of the season, thank the lord.
I read that in the context of this being the Championship and that they're saying at this level there aren't many teams with that many good players. They have to play Norwich so the comment that they might not have to endure the same type of football again this season is a serious compliment to us. It also implies (assuming the author is aware of their upcoming fixtures) that Preston, Villa, Swansea and Forest, who are all above us, are likely to be not nearly as good. But we already knew that when it clicks we are one of the best teams in the division. Just nice to see followers of other, bigger, clubs see that too.I'd say more than half a dozen?
I think we all realise that without MB we'd be where Leyton Orient are, probably where Torquay are might be nearer the mark.Brentford are no different. I also think it's great that they have a decent support base for an area with a lot of competing, bigger clubs, but although I thought their comments were very fair overall, some of their number ought to remember that without the £100,000,000 their owner has thrown in they'd probably be where Leyton Orient are right now."
Like most clubs, we'd be lower without someone helping on the cash front, there's not many who are run completely sustainably within their own means!I think we all realise that without MB we'd be where Leyton Orient are, probably where Torquay are might be nearer the mark.
From S24su.com, reviewing what we have been saying on GPG.
"Teams like Bristol, Swansea, Brentford and Derby: They've got decent players but no balls and you can't win promotion without leaders, grit and nouse. You need those qualities mixed in with quality, and thankfully we're loaded with both"!
At first glance a balanced piece, written by someone who obviously looks at the broader picture. However, I'm not falling for the tosh about tiki-taka and the notion that it's either this or the Cardiff-lite approach. Swans, Muff and Wolves all flourished in the PL after adopting a more technical game in the EFL, this provided an immediate dividend and helped augment their position in the PL in subsequent seasons.
There's no one approach to crack the code, and there are no certainties that the approach adopted by the Blades will prove fruitful this or next yr. I also think it bold of the author to write with such certainty, there's still an awful lot up in the air. Maybe prudent to reign it in somewhat, your season is not over yet.
Some of their comments are understandable but I think they over-simplify things when they think O'Connell and Egan would solve all our problems.Sheff U forum:
Oddly their fans seem to think they are miles better than many teams (including us when you read some of the forums – and maybe they are but have to prove it with points gained and sadly they always start seasons badly and pick up too late) and will critique the likes of Egan and O’Connell. I tell you why make no mistake Brentford were one of the better sides at the Lane and actually were more than matching us 11 v 11. They always play great football and at times you think what a good side they are but they have little end product and you can see why they have tossed so many points away. They make daft mistakes at the back and at the other end are not clinical enough. Their fans may love they way they play but in truth they need to have more of a decisive edge in both boxes or they will be a mid-table club this year and next year. The likes of O’Connell and Egan are the sort of players they need if they want to push on ironically as they lack steel and leadership. Give me these two lads over the pretty, tippy tap stuff at the back they show. It gets you what it has got them mid table.
That said; they all are very comfortable on the ball and are easy on the eye. They knock it about, are patient (too patient) and play some nice one touch stuff. They have some really good players and a few maybe we could nick like we have before. They have some real attacking threats, pace, trickery and technique but as I say need to mix it up a bit. They need a bit more grit and maybe physical strength in key areas as you saw they lack a bit on set plays and almost have to score a perfect goal at times – something we have been guilty of at times but at least we can score goals in different ways. They know tonight has ultimately ended any play off hopes in all likelihood. They had to really win to have a chance and with an hour against ten would have fancied their chances but could not get that goal. If they had; they probably would have gone on and won but then made errors that saw the second go in.
The new manager has actually turned things around after a poor start when he took over from Dean Smith but it will be a bit too late and you worry if some of their better players, Maupay, Watkins and maybe Sawyers might get cherry picked like some of their other talent was. Still they of course have a scouting system and data analysts that allow them to sign the next players to replace the outgoing that they normally sell on for a profit. It is a system that works to a point but not sure I would like to see players going constantly and moving on and then others moving in etc. It is a bit Championship Manager.
