Were you surprised at how your pre-match comments before the Leeds game at GP were picked out and splashed all over Leeds media? Do you feel it had any impact on Leeds' performance and the result? Similarly with Emi's comments before the play off final v Fulham? Since then you seem to go out of your way to praise the opposition pre-match. Was this a conscious change?

Would you rather have a player who's perhaps limited creatively but gives 100% every game or a player who has that little bit of magic that can change a game in an instant? You can't say both!

Would you be prepared to start a B team player in the PL? If so, in which position?

There's currently a discussion on here about how successful or otherwise the B team has been in it's 5 years since the academy closed. How would you rate it's impact and what would you like to improve? What are your expectations for player progression from the B team to the first team? Ie how many should be breaking through and at what level? Fringe, bench or starter?

Do you think you were tactically outmanoeuvred by Scott Parker in last years play off final. With the benefit of hindsight, what (if anything) would you have done differently?

How early before kickoff is the starting XI confirmed to the players?

What is the biggest lesson you've learned from other managers or people within football?

Do you discuss with each individual player why they haven’t made the line up or match day squad?

How has life changed for you personally since promotion? More attention? More distractions? More freebies?
And is there a manager that you're looking forward to meeting that you haven't met before, or do you know them all already?

You don’t come across as a coach who would give his team a rocket at half time and start shouting at everyone to fire them up if they are playing badly or you feel the standards are way below par. Is this a true? Or do you adopt a more measured, cool and calm approach?

Would this be something you would consider?
Brighton boss Graham Potter and Brentford manager Thomas Frank are being lined up as potential replacements for under-pressure Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta. (Team Talk)

Would you sanction a fly on the wall tv documentary behind the scenes at Brentford FC. Something similar to All or Nothing on Amazon with Spurs and Sunderland till I die on netflix

Apologies but this has had to be postponed. I don't want to pass on whatever I have at the moment to TF. So we've agreed to do this later in the season.

There'll be much more to talk about by then in any case 😏

Thomas, How gutted were you when the GPG question session had to be postponed?

Did you think it was a factor in spurring us on to our 26 game winning run?

Is 75 goals a realistic target for Ivan this season now that he already has 54 and its mid March?

Why haven't we signed a right back?

Question for TF, -
What did you feel about the interview being cancelled - total relief or total anxiety that it was being rescheduled?

Been pointed out to me by a rival fan, who admires Frank and Brentford, that whenever caught on camera pitchside he is always chewing gum with his mouth open. My friend asks what brand of gum and could he keep his mouth closed while chewing. My friend is an Arsenal fan.

Does Thomas visit a barber, hairdresser or stylist for his wonderful flowing hair and has that changed since we are in the Premier League?

Thomas, it feels like so far we've been pretty competitive and have coped well with the intensity of games in general but that our intensity has dropped of severely in the last 15 minutes of each game. Is this reflected in your data and if so, how do we fix that, particularly with only 3 substitutes to bring on?
