The second part of our podcast double-header as Brentford head coach Thomas Frank joins the Beesotted crew down the Red Lion pub in Barnes to talk football, football and more football.
And we discussed how instrumental he was in picking players both when Dean Smith was manager and also this last window.
What frustrated him most about the Brentford ‘model’.
What players didn’t work out. Did Brentford regret selling players like John Egan and Romaine Sawyers.
How much have players like Josh DaSilva developed in his year in charge.
xG, stats and the infamous ‘Justice League’. Can’t Brentford just be top of the real table as opposed to the stats tables?
What players does he see next coming forward from the B-team and what players maybe are unlikely to make the first team.
Plus the big question. Is this season’s Brentford team better than last season’s?
