    Brentford v Reading

    We've been poor of late, but only really in Away games. Our Home form has been good, so I'm hoping we can get back to winning ways here and charge up the table a little. We rested most of our first team against Arsenal, so I'm sure most of the regulars will come back into the team. Our lack of...

    Derby v Brentford

    Another away game, still not got our first away win but we've been pretty unlucky in a lot of those games. We seem to be a lot less clinical away from home than we are at Griffin Park - but even still, I've yet to see us be 2nd best in a game this year (with the Villa game maybe the exception)...

    Ipswich v Brentford

    Tuesday night game, hopefully the injured guys from today are back in time. We’re in great form at the moment. Hopefully it continues. Reckon a tight away win, largely the same starting team. 2-1 Brentford, Benrahma and Maupay with the goals

    Brentford v Wigan

    Probably the first game this season I’ll be properly confident going into. Couple of squad injuries but we’ve been performing well and would always back us at home against a newly promoted side. Especially as we should have Maupay back. We’ll probably keep as close to our usual line up as...

    Brentford v Forest

    Looking forward to this one, will be good to see how good the new Forest signings are. Hopefully we’ll be back to good form, been a bit unlucky the past couple of games. Not sure what we’ll do with the line up for this, largely stick with the same but I reckon we’ll see Watkins up top. Bentley...

    Blackburn vs Brentford

    Tricky to call this game - they've started pretty well so far, and we're now going to be without Maupay for the game. I'll still back us for the win but wouldn't surprise me if we drew. We looked a bit tired for the first 70 minutes against Villa, too many passes going astray and not getting to...

    Villa v Brentford

    Probably going to be our biggest test of the season so far, a team that performed well last year and have had a decent start. If we can come through with a win it'll be a real indication that we can properly challenge this season at the top of the table. As it is, we'll probably make a couple...

    Brentford v Wednesday

    Flying back from honeymoon on Sunday, gutted to miss it as should be a good game. Expect us to keep the same line up, though Jeanvier and Benrahma both are pushing for a start. We’ve been brilliant so far this season, odd to say that the game at Stoke was two dropped points, should have won...

    Brentford v Rotherham

    The summers never feel so bad when the World Cup is on, still nice to get back to proper football though. Tough to know what our team will be, few injuries around that might clear up, I’d go for: Bentley Dalsgaard - Konsa - Mepham - Barbet Woods - Mokotjo Benrahma - Sawyers - Canos Watkins...

    Championship Fixtures

    ...are out https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44481605 No massive thoughts at this stage, other than I'm down to miss 3 games so far this season, if the away and home fixtures were reversed, I'd be missing 7 (various holidays and weddings) so the fixture gods have been incredibly kind! PNE...

    Early Sky Bet Championship Promotion Odds 18/19

    Know they mean nothing this early in the summer, but they do make for interesting reading, especially when there's not much other news going around. Unsurprisingly the three relegated teams are the favourites to go back up at this stage. Though it shows just how little information they are...

    Barnsley v Brentford

    Massive game. Anything but a win here and we are pretty much out of it. Keep going back over the season and wishing we had started a bit better, or hadn’t thrown away 2 goals in injury time against QPR. Bentley Dalsgaard - Egan - Mepham - Barbet Mokotjo - Woods - Sawyers Jozefzoon - Watkins - Canos

    Sky Sports - Top 10 Championship Players so far...

    Had an article out this morning with their top 10 players of the season so far. Couple of surprises in there I reckon: 10. Albert Adomah (Villa) 9. Leo Bonatini (Wolves) 8. James Maddison (Norwich) 7. Ollie Watkins (Brentford) 6. Luke Freeman (QPR) 5. Bobby Reid (Bristol City) 4. Junior Hoilett...

    Brentford v Derby

    We're currently at 81% possession, Derby have had one shot (a weak header) and scored. Story of our fucking season. Not saying we've been brilliant. We aren't creating brilliant chances. But neither are the opposition, they haven't in any of our games, but they still all go in. Derby can't...

    Brentford v Reading

    Similar story to all our other games. We didn't play particularly well today, but still managed to miss a ridiculous number of easy chances. Had double the number of shots than the other team. Some really selfish poor play from some of our players on the counter today, and we concede from a...

    Match Day Brentford v Leeds

    Complete domination so far - could be 4 at the moment. Really hit form since January with Jota and Henry returning to the team, and Canos and Jozefzoon coming in.

    Nominations are out: Izzy Brown (Huddersfield) - 5 Goals/Assists Jota (Brentford) - 7 Goals/Assists Aiden McGeady (Preston) - 7 Goals/Assists Kenneth Zohore (Cardiff) - 5 Goals/Assists Really hard month to choose from, all been fantastic. McGeady tore us apart.

    Brentford v Brighton

    Glenn Murray is absolutely pathetic. Diving and throwing himself to the floor all over the place. Should be ashamed of himself. On a happier note, we're 2-0 up at half time and look amazing. Switching back to a 4-5-1, and having Jota back have completely changed us. Who needs Hogan?

    Nintendo Switch Launch

    Pre-ordered one this morning - long time Nintendo fan, and there's lots to love about this new installment, but I can't help but feel incredibly disappointed at a lot of the launch: 1. I've never seen so few games at launch for a launch console. And for me, the only one I will bother buying is...

    Match Day Brentford vs Fulham (Friday Night - Live on Sky)

    Second derby game in a row, a great result for us last weekend but it was more down to QPR's bad play than anything we did. Expecting Fulham to put up more of a fight, but at home I'll back us to win by the odd goal.
