With all this hubbub about Adam Forshaw and Wigan shrouding the start of our season, we thought it would be good to focus on more positive stuff as we look forward to our opening game in the Championship.

Brentford have been busy this summer with their forays into the transfer market bringing the likes of Andre Gray from Luton, Scott Hogan from Rochdale, Marcus Tebar from Almeria and Moses Odubajo from Orient.

But the shopping hasn’t finished yet.

Even without the injury to Hogan, Brentford were looking to bolster their striking options. The idea of two strikers from two or three divisions below the Championship leading Brentford’s forward line against Championship defenders is a big ask.

Yes these players may be quality. But they also need time to grow into the role without so much pressure on their shoulders. Will Grigg came to Brentford with a big price tag and huge expectations. When he started off slowly, it was like an ever increasing circle with the pressure of delivery getting on top of him and he failed to deliver.

There are rumours afoot, probably circulated by his agent, of Brentford signing free agent ex Liverpool striker Milan Baros. These rumours are totally unfounded and have since been refuted by the owner on twitter as some sort of joke.

However, Beesotted have been told that Brentford are close to making a few more signings to round up their fruitful summer. The first player to join looks to be a striker who Brentford hope to have a deal wrapped up before the opening game of the season against Charlton.

The management staff are are also working on bringing in another centre back as well as a creative midfielder.

All in all, it’s looking very promising indeed. And if the quality of the players being offered contracts remains as high as the quality already bought in, things are set go get even more exciting.

Admittedly, this weekend has been an irritant. But that’s football for you. However, if we concentrate on the positives, and Brentford continues to build and maintain a squad capable of holding their own in this division then we can’t really ask for much more.

And if we’re talking long term ….. That’s the only thing that really matters really.
