No idea how this one will go. We played fairly well against Wolves and lost. Looks like Brentford are a far better side now than when we won at Griffin Park back in August.

Hoping for a win, would settle for a draw. Though given how many points we've dropped of late when dominating games I would appreciate a lucky win.

Not got good vibes for todays game. We've been far better the past 3 games, but still aren't getting the points on the board (mainly due to not being able to break teams down again). I think we'll draw, which isn't enough really.. but if we're going to be mid table this season it wouldn't be a terrible result.

Decent up until we scored. After that we were crap. Blackman is not a wide player and the less said about Hector's red card the better. Cant understand why McDermott didn't bring Sa on and instead put Liburd on.Should have kept Piazon on who was our best player today.Looks like John will be out injured for a bit as well. Went off with what looked like a hamstring injury. Our corner taking is pathetic. 150 corners since we scored from one.Going to have to expect nothing more than midtable now.

I really can't be bothered...

Our only decent attacking player goes off injured, and is now on crutches. We don't play terrible but lose to two wonder goals... I know crap teams have crap luck, but we are really taking that to a new extreme.

That 150 corner stat is a minimum. That's if you include Hector vs Derby last season which was a bit of pinball after a corner. The most recent direct corner goal was HRK against Bradford last season. And in that time we've probably conceded 3 or 4 from our own corners..

Major work needed in Jan.. after we had just done major changes in the Summer. Can't see it happening though unless we can end all of these loanees early.

Great result if not the best performance, defeat was probably harsh on Reading, I thought they deserved something but oh well. Two absolute screamers for our goals, Canos' especially, what a great prospect he is at only 18 years old.

What a goal from Canos! Bees go marching on. If we have a good January in terms of transfers could be a very good second half of the season for us.
