You need a draw against Stoke or Barnsley to get to the top flight and Brentford do what Brentford do

For 10 minutes it felt like we had a chance. Numbing disappointment once again, as so often in the past. I'm not sure the players have enough left mentally or physically to make it through the play-offs.

We’re done for the season.
Time to lump on Fulham for the play offs.
2 points would have been enough from the last 2 games. Bottled it good and proper.

NOT "as ever".

As in a few cases. Get real.

The pressure got to them.

We plan Swansea in the playoffs and we had a 6-1 aggregate over them in the regular season.

Hopefully we win and get Fulham in the final, over whom we had a 3-0 aggregate in the regular season.

The pressure evens out now.

We’re just knackered. So many games in such a short space of time.. we haven’t managed the squad well enough.
I think we had to go for it while we had the chance of automatic ... and how close we came. I would have started with a different team tonight ie with many of those who finished on from the start, but I don't think I would have rested too many any earlier. Yes, it means we will have to dig deep for the POs, but it is still not out of the question.

How about we'll support you evermore.?

Yes I am gutted, but 3rd in the Championship and play offs for promotion.
I would take that at the start of the season.

Had one or two of those chances gone in.. or any dropped points in the last 46 games. It's not all down to these two... End of the season games always a bit of a crapshoot

Please **** off talking about at the start of the season. We had TWO chances of going up automatically and we've ****ed it.

Feels a little like the year we missed out to Doncaster and Yeovil. Unfortunately feel it won’t be our year, but still come a hell of a long way from some of the dross we’ve seen in the not too distant past. If it’s not this year then we are undeniably on the right path.

Ive had over 70 years. This is the worst few days in that time.
The only thing is that we are now a proper football club and we will get there.
Will I still be here though. :confused:

It's not 2 games, any team that stop us playing out from the back by a high press will beat us, we haven't a clue how to adapt to that & will always concede a sloppy goal being forced into mistakes.

It's happened. Move on.

You have not been going long have you?
Barnsley did a job.
Same as Bournemouth in 95.
It happens.
"It happens" What a great analogy. Twice we had the team above us dropping points and your response is "it happens" Wish I saw you at a party

I’ve never posted on here although have been a reader (lurker) for quite a while.

The negativity is sickening... we have had our highest finish in 70 odd years. Yes we had a chance to go up today but to say we bottled it is just social media fuelled drivel.

We lost a game of football today. And several others throughout the season. It wasn’t just tonight that was the reason we didn’t go up. Or the Stoke game.

We have a great chance in the play offs. And if the negativity of the fans on here is anything to go by then it is a good effing job that it is behind closed doors.

Grow the **** up and support your club in any way you can. They do not lose on purpose. They are young kids (in the main) doing the best they can for themselves, their families and us.

We've been sh*t since Charlton behave yourself. We won't win playoffs playing like that. We've been shocking in the past 3-4 games can't you see that?

Nah mate, seen it over & over & over again.
We seem to find new ways to blow it every time.

Playoffs anyway but that last goal certainly looked offside when you play it back on the ESPN feed.

Yes, those other teams we have played have not had to play as many games -

Our knackered players spend their lives wrapped in cotton wool with everything done for them - dieticians, physios, coaches for everything - but playing 2 games a football a week is to much for them.

Did not look like Barnsley had that problem.

Not insulting anyone mate I'm stating facts. Yes we're in the best position we've ever been in but to have that advantage and to bottle it. Awful,

You’re right. Sorry. Maybe we should give up our place and let someone else have a go. I mean, it’s not like, statistically, we are the best team in the play offs this season.

Highest league placing in my lifetime, some of the best football I have ever seen. Properly run club, new stadium, the future looks good. Then the old Brentford habit of failing on the big occasion comes creeping back. I thought that was in the past but looks like I will have to wait a bit longer. We may yet succeed this season but don't think I could take any more crushing disappointment so am swerving the POs. Looking forward to next season.

Nonsense. Thomas Frank has provided a template for the opposition in the last two games :- 'Bank up' with 11 in defence (Stoke). High Press (Barnsley). No answer. This has happened many times this season. No plan 'B''

Some of the noise here is disgraceful. We're all hurting but the players have given it all and just come up short. They will also be gutted and this negative bulls$%t won't help. They need to know we appreciate how much they've given and that we'll be behind them next game and next season rather than hea4 some people screaming at them like petulant children. It isn't all over yet. This isn't about being Rose tinted its about being a decent person. If you can't manage that, do one.

So heartbreaking after some of the most wonderful football by any Bees team ever ! Football can be so cruel really thought we would get a second at 1– 1 but I guess it’s just such a Brentford thing to do , falling at the last hurdle isn’t new to us let’s be honest . Lifting the players after that is going to be incredibly tough especially playing Swansea who gatecrashed at the last minute , but we’re still 3 games from the premier league .

I’ve been supporting Brentford for 56 years and it’s something when you’re disappointed that the team haven’t been automatically promoted to the Premier League. :rolleyes:

As he says, we haven’t managed the squad well enough. That’s why our key players are shattered.
We had to go for sh*t or bust after the resumption, or we would never have got ourselves into a position to get top two. Worked for 7 games, but 8/9 was a step too far.
