Priceless Maupay In The Last Minute – Fulham Stung Again By Brentford

Priceless Maupay In The Last Minute – Fulham Stung Again By Brentford
Spread the love

Scoring a critical, last-gasp, goal against your fierce local rivals and being part of the wave of elation that erupted in the Craven Cottage away section (again) was absolutely priceless, and having spent a chunk of Sunday afternoon watching the game back, the pride I felt about our excellent team and outstanding support was further amplified.

The Bees players really did underline their credentials as one of the best footballing sides in the division right now and Fulham, for all the hype and superlatives the media have heaped on them during their amazing unbeaten run, in Brentford, more than met their match. They should be delighted to earn a draw against a side that not only outplayed them for most of the game, but could/should have won the match had two game-changing decisions not been missed by the match officials.

Fulham didn’t play at their best because Brentford didn’t let them… to a man we pressed the Cottagers and forced them into mistakes, and in Ryan Woods, we had a player who bossed the midfield and looked the best player on the pitch by a country mile.

The spirit and sense of belief in the Brentford camp was there for all to see – with the game deep into injury time, and a goal down thanks to one of only a handful moments of quality from Fulham – there was no exodus on ‘away terrace’ or sulking from the boys in green… instead they dug deep and went at Fulham in waves, and that never-say-die mentality earned them their just reward.

Watching Dean Smith and the dug-out go potty was superb, and it shows the passion that runs deep through our club right now… but its the goal that’ss still on repeat… this season is not over yet!

Barbet swings in on last cross… Jozefzoon rises and heads the ball back across the face of the goal… Maupay is unmarked at the back stick… he heads it goal-ward into the ground as Bettinelli scrambles across… Incredible… “you cannot write this script”… Maupay in the last minute! COME ON YOU BEES!

    Could not agree more Dave, that goal and performance was two fingers up to the stuck up, “made in Chelsea” wannabes. They must have spat their gin and tonics out when that goal went in !. And the total infatuation of the media for Fulham stinks, just another example of the corporate lineage, I am just waiting for the dreaded sleeping giant! quote to be banded around next !!! But as Bees fans we are use to being put down # teams like Brentford , but I am a beeliever that we will have are day in the sun, and what goes around will come around. And as I walked away from the ground on Saturday with a smile on my face and the sound of true football supporters singing “we’re the red and white army”, I could not help but see the remains of the Fulham atmosphere and hopes for a top two finish ! float off down the Thames in the shape of those embarrassing clappers.

    Take a look at the review;Brentford on Fulham official Ryan(tosser) Fredericks, we dominated Jokanovic and gentleman Jim (blind and needs a hearing aid),must have been watching and listening to a different game, sour grapes or what? No mention that they were lucky not to lose only that they didn’t play to there usual standard, we have heard that a few times this season.
