Nice words Ant. I do like your commentary and you often seem to commentate on a lot of our away victories unless my memory is cheating.
As for our current team, I agree we have a strong squad and I am confident of being top 3 this season. Taylor seems to have found his strongest team which has...
He’ll come good I’m sure. Bowman took time to get going and perhaps a couple of games off the bench may be a good move.
I’d be more concerned if he’d had 4 or 5 clear cut chances and fluffed them. Just hope he doesn’t snatch at his first opportunity out of frustration!
Presumably Brentford won’t want to lose another key player at this stage, but, as we know, every player has a price and if someone offered big bucks I doubt they’d turn it down.
Get the feeling Ollie may leave this window as clubs seem to be buying left right and centre lately.
Because the agreement was to retire it for 9 seasons. Personally, I have no issue with the number being reintroduced.
Stanno will never be forgotten, fans will always sing his name, his giant shirt will be displayed on the BB and the new stand is named after him.
I’m sure his family have been...
I think he’s going to be one of the next young’uns to break through. He’s looked good in the friendlies by all accounts but hopefully this spell will give him vital experience and we can assess him in January.
I wonder if something may happen on deadline day? Can’t see Brentford being too keen to sell this late in the window.
Perhaps a January move is more likely, particularly if he has a great first half to this season.
The same person on the football forum has just suggested to me that Brentford bought out the 20% sell on around a year ago.
I don’t think this is the case? Surely we wouldn’t do that considering the profit we’d be in line to make from the deal?
He’s also said the fee has been rumoured to be...
According to a Brentford fan on the Football Forum, Palace have placed a cash + player bid for Watkins.
Potentially great news for us but hope we don’t get shafted if the fee is reduced due to the other player being part of the deal.
Hoping Wilson will sign for us again and play at right back. Get Sparkes in at left back and that will give us some mobility in those areas.
To be honest it sounded like Swansea were slick on the ball and moved it around quickly, which exposed our defence. L2 teams will be a different...
Taylor said the intention was to loan Smerdon out initially, but I did expect him to end up at someone like Bath City, especially as he played NLS last season.
He should be a cut above at Tivvy’s level.
MT really does praise Sparkes in his interview. Perhaps he could be one of those that was thrust into action 18 months too soon and he may now be maturing into a good player.
It does sound like he’s capable of being a good left back and has the added bonus of being good on the ball too...
