Over the past 3 seasons we have struggled against Brentford. This time, there can't be an excuse for being ill-prepared, as Smith knows every one of their players, having also recruited many of them. 

He will know Thomas Frank and the tactics, so the very least I am expecting is for us not to get passed off the field, not to be dominated, and moreover to exploit some of their known weaknesses.

Is this a 'must win' game I keep hearing about?

Incidentally, I'm working in Ealing and thinking I might go along on the day, pay at the turnstile and sit quietly in among the Brentford fans, anyone else planning on similar?

Where are you working Jon?

Last year we started with Jedinak and Whelan. Shudders.

SB special. Even he barely played those two as a combination from the start much last season but of course the one game he does it's against one of the most mobile and quick passing teams in the whole league.

Of course "that's the championship for you."

A defeat I'm afraid.  I want us to win but that same old midfield and those full backs will fuck things up most games.  I hope I am wrong.  Game it on telly, on the red button I believe.

It is the main event on Sky.

Brentford to probably be too good for us.

But, 3-0 Villa.
