    Brentford SOLD OUT : Ticket Requests (Merged)

    Massively unlikely I know but if anyone happens to have spare ticket.... happy to pay a sensible amount. I’d resided myself to missing the game and the long trip down from Lancs. I’m now working in London on Thursday and Friday and much more gutted to be missing it.... thanks.

    Designer stubble I think we called it back then!!! He was a really decent centre half. Some great memories on both sides, Hay and MacPhail our two in their side. Remember Keith Walwyn being decent, John Byrne was good but always got loads of stick for his hair-do! Ricky Sbragia is Man United U23 manager these days...... let me put that another way, he’s caretaker manager of Man United this time next week!

    “I Can’t rule out championship players”

    People think this is a premier league problem.... how much better is it in the championship? I don’t think we’ve a huge number of non-English players yet I can easily see more than half our starting line up on Sunday being non-English: Maenpaaa Kalas O’Dowda Eliasson Weimann Diedhiou and off the top of my head Pisano, Wright and Hegeler (If he’s still around) add to the non-England qualified players. Id be surprised if more than 50% of the Championship’s players were England qualified.

    9 international call ups

    Good point..... Diedhiou and Kalas are both full internationals too... so that could well be selected during this season.

    Caretaker manager of Stoke in a few weeks then...

    PA system - it’s getting embarrassing now .....

    Actually.... I’ve no idea who I’d have picked as MoM in any of the games I’ve seen so far.... Weinann in each I guess.

    Johnson needs experience behind him

    I can’t imagine any of those attributes being on Steve, Jon and Mark’s “head coach” role profile (unfortunately)

    Johnson needs experience behind him

    Interesting, I can’t think of a time he’s accepted responsibility. There’s always someone at fault or he needs more players or he’s not got the right type of players.... he buys* them and picks them. *I know MA does the signings but LJ claims to have final say.
  10. He’s slagged off by loads, not all on here - I’ve wanted him here for years and years. It'll never happen SL couldn’t work with him, presumably not nice enough, would want control and would tell it like it is!
  11. I don’t think I’ve seen that one... hopefully a case of “great minds”
  12. Well that’s it, isn’t it? LJ has built a “nice” team of “nice” boys... a team in his own image! what always surprises me about LJ is that he can’t spot that you have to have a blend of players and characters........ if he casts his mind back far enough he might remember the bloke who played alongside him during the best spell of his playing career.... Marvin Elliott.

    LJ publicly puts pressure on SL for signings

    Agree with this. If LJ is sacked, the model has to change. It’ll be the model that’s failed. But if the model is retained then it can’t be done with little experience. Top quality head coach and genuinely experienced director of football / scout / ceo.

    LJ publicly puts pressure on SL for signings

    Might well be true but... He says that he has final say in all of them. At the least he’s culpable by just going along with the “model” “project” “pillars”
  15. Mendip City

    Are you confident Johnson is the man?

    The bit about lack of physical presence and all “footballers” is it for me. You have to have a blend.... he’s managed to ship out what little physicality we had.... and replaced them with weaker players AND is trying to play tipppy tappy football in a ridiculously competencies league. Trouble is, if he’s binned now, the next man has to try to work with this flimsy squad.
