Bees trending top on Twitter. You cannot beat a last minute winner, especially after conceding a late equaliser beforehand!

Now, how do I go into work on Tuesday with my boss being a West Ham fan... and I phoned in sick today (genuine reason too, was in hospital this morning).
I know.
Celebrating.
Just turn up and ask him if he has any aspirin. Tell him you've got a terrible hangover as you've been drinking champagne for two days solid. :sorted:

On the BBC league table there seems to be something you get for being seventh. I honestly haven't a clue what that might be - can anyone help me out?

Closing the gap on Chelsea. When were we last the top London club in the league. ? 1938.

Sure we rode our luck a bit second half (though lots of skill was involved as well) but we could/should have been 3-0 up after 20 minutes so its far from the least deserved away win I have seen, particularly when you add the injuries!

I’m not convinced that Jensen is suited to our game this season, bite my head if you want but we’ve got a completely different style this year. Jensen is good when we have a lot of the ball, not good when we don’t.
All this singling out of Jensen is grossly unfair. It wasn't his job alone to mark Bowen.

By the way, was it not Jensen who delivered the cross, a free kick, from which we scored the winning goal?

UEFA Europa Conference I believe, their third tier competition.

It was yeh, but Jensen stood out like a sore thumb before that, so not grossly unfair whatsoever. I'm pleased for Jensen but let's not overreact, his performance showed why he'd not been involved in the starting 11 up until the set piece delivery in the last minute.

I think Jensen had a much better game than Frank tbh ... but happy to glory in the win right now and leave the post mortem (for WHU of course) for later.

This team does NOT know when it's beaten. Brilliant defending again today (apart from one small lapse). Ethan is a Rolls Royce, and Pontus is doing brilliantly. We just look so good and so assured. Once we really get going, I think we'll do quite well :).

Incredible win.. i thought we were lucky to hang on to a point but very happy to get 3.. now 9 points above relegation. Toney, Norgaard and Mbeumo were magnificent.. Zanka did well on his start.. Jensen disappointing and should be usurped by Bidtsrup in future who did a lot more in his cameo... Wonderful way to go into international break with a chance to rest up. COYB

Hope you replied β€œyeah, felt the same after we lost to Brighton. Oh well. How sad. Never mind”.

First half we were the better team by some distance and really should have been 2-3 up.

Injuries to ajer, baptiste and janelt always meant we were going to start hanging on at some point but I felt we did that too early, but Christ did we do that well.

I am sure motd and others will talk about West Ham being robbed second half but I look at a gutsy, Brentfordesque defensive performance we have become accustomed to and I thought we had done enough to deserve a point.

Then you give away a set piece at you peril and bosh, 2.1. Unbelievable.

I am sure sh*thousery won the day, WHU were poor etc etc.

I've noticed that some newspaper commenters are claiming Brentford are dirty. They conveniently ignore the fact that West Ham committed more fouls. They don't like the new boys showing them up.

Dare I say that i'm not sure where Benrahma would fit in our team at the moment? Obviously he's pure quality but could you have him in that middle 3? You wouldn't drop Bryan for him right now that's for certain.
