Their frustration is about the fact that they feel they should be beating teams like us. Burnley 'Burnley' their way through every game of every season and no one hates them for it, like it or lump it it's just part of the top flight. They'll calm down....
When they are 1-0 up at Southampton, next weekend, with ten minutes to go they will be doing exactly the same.

I'll never understand why one should strife through the opposition's boards before and after a match.
Did anyone ever read something there that was unexpected ?

Forest and other classic timewasters and sh*thousers we’ve moaned about had nothing else to their games and used it to hang on after scrambling a goal. It’d be lovely to be lovely and Corinthian but while we were doing those game management things to break things up we were also always looking to break and grab a third while a man down and 2-0 up away from home. And when Baptiste was sent off I’m sure most were expecting Bryan to come off rather than for us to keep two up and take off a defender. Wolves could have had few complaints about us had we won that by four or more. And they know it.
You have said what I was thinking but with far greater articulation!
I said the same thing about the sub on a WhatsApp group. Leaving Toney on his own would reduce our options. He does his bit in defence and attack. Not the first time Thomas has done this.

We out footballed them as well though. All the hard footballl things like organisation, team work, adaptability - we were as solid as a rock and that wins football games.
Also I thought Toneys goal was OK, he kept his arms by his side and didn't move them.

From same Wolves forum

Brentford won fair and square, but were a disgrace to the game for their continual fakery and time wasting. I had always liked them until today, but after that shenanigans I sincerely hope they go down. Trouble is, we may well go with them if there are any more performances like today.
As I said pre season to anyone that listens, having heard many variants of “you really deserve it, you will have some great days out but get a few hammering along the way”

My response has been “we are not the pretty footballers we used to be, we had to and did change, you have no idea what we are built upon and I guarantee you will hate us come seasons end”

I bet one of my Liverpool mates we would be around for many years to come, I will wager anything he wants that we bother the top teams more than the bottom ones.

Also I thought Toneys goal was OK, he kept his arms by his side and didn't move them.

It did hit his arm and lead directly to a goal, sadly it was the right decision no matter how slight it seems.

Agree. He got a significant advantage, so in my opinion, regardless of how close you are to the ball or unintentional etc, the advantage gained should be the deciding factor. It felt like the fair decision. Might have felt differently if we were 2 nil down at that stage!

For the second goal, I’m not sure if the ball hit Toney’s arm but there was enough play after that where Wolves could have tackled him that the accidental bounce was not material in the eventual outcome.

I thought it did hit his arm for Mbeumo’s goal but it would have been ridiculous to have given handball in the circumstances and nobody attempted to. Kilman’s challenge was potentially a foul anyway!

For the disallowed one had he handled it deliberately he’d have been carded but as it struck his lower arm was the right decision. If it had hit his chest that would have been a ridiculously calm back heel finish!

They hated our "cheating" They absolutely love Toney, admire Mbuemo and are very impressed by Pinnock and Ajer. (No mention of Norgaard, oddly). But this comment by a Wolves fan won the day for me: "we were tactically out-thought by a floppy haired interior designer of a manager fresh up from the Championship"

Same old dross. Close it down. Embarrassing.
It’s fun reading opponent fans spitting feathers and seeing things from the other side sometimes gives interesting perspectives that we miss. You can always mute the thread.

Before - to get an idea how the oppo is playing/what the mood is and After - to see how they saw the game.

Not a lot different to tuning in to this forum to see what other Bees fans are thinking/saying.

What I personally can never understand is the Referee Watch thread, which always seems to me like lamp posts complaining about dogs (i.e. pointless).

Each to his own, I guess?

Edited their comments for you:

“we were tactically out-thought by a young and clearly talented emerging football genius whose team repeatedly violated us on live TV, seen around the world. Could have been 0-6. Same guy whose team humiliated Arsenal on the opening game of the season, I believe”.

So sad.

yes, loads of times. I was pleasantly surprised, for example, to read last season e.g. Bristol City’s fans talking objectively and with admiration about how Brentford are run and managed compared to themselves. And Planet Swans is always a laugh, given that we’re living rent free in their heads and loving it.

If you don’t want to read things other teams’ fans say about Brentford FC then you can [checks notes] mute the helpfully-titled thread called things other teams’ fans say about Brentford FC, I believe.

The annoying thing for me was I believe the lino flagged (wrongly) for offside and the handball wasn't noticed until VAR got involved. Does this mean they scrutinize for anything rather than the actual incident the lino flagged for?He was too far away to see handball

I think all goals get VAR checked so it made no difference but you’re right if the check only happened because of the flag. But if it hadn’t Toney’s arm we’d have been glad of VAR giving the goal!

Pretty sure that the VAR guy can check any goal regardless of what the lino does. It wasn't a deliberate handball but as the law stands there can be no complaints about it being given.

Loses a little of its charm, I'd say though.

I’ll never understand why people come onto threads that don’t interest them and then complain that people are discussing the topic of the thread.

Yep. It’s like the insane clown clownsters who, as regular as clockwork, pop up on the other thread whenever England are playing to tell us how little they care about England.

Then there’s a back and forth before the clowns say that, actually, they’re Irish.

[Note: I’m setting up a fake account with the Shamrock Rovers forum so I can be very mature and tell them how much I don’t support the Irish Republic’s national team, every time they play. Yes, that’s the most pathetic thing ever but, hey, we put up with that sh*t here so it’s only fair to give it back. I think. Or something).

Sorry for mistakingly thinking I might be allowed to voice an opinion as well.
Apology accepted.

I don’t care a jot about the price of fish. Care to hear my opinion about how much haddock costs? Would that be helpful?

Perhaps there should be a "Things Norwich fans say about Norwich" thread? I'm struggling to find much on the Norwich board about us. A few comments about how we didn't sell Toney because he wants to stay with us, whereas Buendia wanted to leave, and some stuff about how we've picked up points you wouldn't necessarily expect us to (if you're a Norwich fan) but I don't really know what the interesting reading is!

There's a whole thread on Ajer and whether Norwich will rue not matching our offer for him.

Amusingly it ends with the statement "fair play to the lad but I'm sure privately he's still kicking himself that he didn't end up here [at Norwich]"!!!

Sure he is 🤣 the bright lights of West London pale significantly when compared with the rural nothingness of East Anglia 😃

15 posts mainly about Norwich’s Kabak, halfway down page two of the Norwich forum, does not an interest make. 😐

.....'if you had asked fans of both Norwich and other PL clubs at the start of the summer if they'd rather have Ajer or Kabak then the majority would have chosen the latter'.

Did the duplicitous Canary surreptitiously omit the S before PL in order to come out with that nugget.

Early days and I'm not making a judgement either way but that's a ridiculous statement to make.

I've lived in both. Both are great places with lots of pubs! Ajer made the right choice tho!

My son just sent me this 😂😂😂😂
What is this dog sh*t?

I’ll take this and raise you:
  • The Wolves GK deliberately scuffing the penalty spot
  • Neves going down clutching his face when Ivan brushed his shoulder
Obviously these forms of cheating are entirely acceptable.

Also, in the deepest depths of the Black Country there must be a direct causal link between the hole in Raya’s glove and Wolves failure to have a shot on target despite playing a third of the game against 10 men.

Interesting read on the Norwich forum I checked out this morning.

Did you forget the link?

Minimal detective work turned up this from Saturday

Highlight probably
"Hats off to Brentford, we were a better team than them in the championship but Frank* has found a way to win in this league, they play some good stuff and some pretty average stuff and they know how to frustrate and apply gamesmanship to get a result. They totally rattled Wolves and their fans. Good luck to them, Wolves are more our rival now"

* Franks = Thomas Frank and Frank Onyeka?
