A few thoughts on the Brentford game

I went to the game with low expectations because of the rain and wind. It didn’t seem like the best weather for a game of football.  The sight of a hole in the roof of a nearby building reinforced that opinion and the possibility of debris from the hole later led to closure of part of Coventry Road. This meant that the walk back down to the bus stop after the game involved a detour.

The first half was more interesting than expected, with some decent play, two goals and a different hairstyle for Lee Camp. The second half was scrappier; I think conditions had worsened and players were tired. But there were chances and saves for both sides. 

A win would have been nicer but the draw kept our unbeaten run going.  And if we can beat Sheffield Wednesday next week, we’ll go above them in the table as we are now level on points but behind on goal difference. I was glad I’d gone but it felt good to reach home and hot food afterwards.

    Saw the game from France, both lots of players had trouble staying on their feet, the conditions were appalling and the pitch near waterlogged. Not exactly condusive to good football and mistakes were almost unavoidable and the chance of injury greatly increased. At least the teams tried to play football, but UK winters can get this way sometimes. C’est la vie.

    My thoughts were that not having a back up striker when hogan got injured helped brentford attacked us. also have a winger on the bench you know doesnt want to be in the country doesn thelp. it certainly wasnt his type of game (when is recently). I would much rather have keita on the bench than montero.

    My thoughts also,
    Keita could of done something Saturday (rate him)
    Montero stuck in a rut (same moves nothing different)
    The team went from hot to cold
    needed to keep attacking!.(even if it was over the top).
