Time To Panic? Brentford, No Wins In Seven Podcast

Time To Panic? Brentford, No Wins In Seven Podcast

Still no wins after seven matches following an unlucky draw against Aston Villa and an unlucky loss against Sheffield Wednesday. Bees fans are starting to get nervous with the team sitting in 23rd position and already more than a dozen points away from where we’d hoped to have been this season. Time to panic? Or time to keep calm and carry on?

The Beesotted crew met up yet again in the Cross Keys pub in Stamford Brook, Hammersmith to shoot the breeze and pontificate on whether Brentford were plain unlucky … or just rubbish in front of goal.

In the boozer this week:

Play Or Stay Drama At Griffin Park

The Griffin Park Invincibles

Brentford's impressive home record to date this year, despite several 'wish-we-could-have-avoided' draws against 'teams-like' opposition, is something we all hope continues for the rest of the season, however, the 2017/18 run hasn't got a patch on events from 88 years...

    A good striker, would have made his mark, by now.
    Meaning, the team are lacking finishers. They must feel lousy!
    Let’s see what the Royals game produces; it had better be a striker, or two!

      Seem to remember a certain Mr Warburton sticking with Andre Gray ,Who was tacking a lot of stick at the time, when he could’nt hit a cows bum with a banjo?

    I scored six goals today (seven, last week), in walking football, to marshall my team back from losing game one, five -two, switched goalie to defence and vice versa, then drawing second two -all, won last one eight-four; I’ll come down and give them some coaching!

    • hobo

      Very impressive Brian, give Benham/ Smith a ring i’m sure they would love to discuss tactics with you?

    Having been to both Villa and Wednesday I have to say (with the exception of the first 25 mins of the second half at Weds) I’ve never seen us play so well. Barbe looks like a very skilful Dean and has picked up the mantle. Maupay is a nightmare for defenders, Sawyers is looking majestic, Woods is just getting better, Watkins looks like he has it all etc. I could not pick anyone who had a poor game.

    After both games I was approached by home fans saying we were the better team and should have won.

    Lets put it in perspective we’ve, lost one of the last four games and that by the width of a post. This will come good – I have a feeling we are going to give Reading an absolute spanking!!
