  1. That does seem rather a telling statement. Unusual for a player to refer to the coaching but it's not clear what he was getting at.
  2. I dread to think what will happen at Brentford if we are that passive. It's one thing to sit on a lead and another to stand off and let the opposition have as much time and space as they want. Given that was the case for an hour I assume Holden was ok with it though. On the plus side, Kalas is rapidly turning into Shaun Taylor. Shame more of his teammates don't follow his example.
  3. But before you even swoop you have to 'monitor' the player before spending weeks 'preparing a bid'.
  4. If they talk several times a day the least they could do is ensure their stories are consistent you would think. At best it's inefficient at worst we are being told inconsistent lies.
  5. Personally I am on the fence about Walsh. But as far as a contract offer is concerned I would like to know whether Holden was lying when he told us an offer had been made or if Ashton is lying now.
  6. Yep, everybody at the club is marking their own homework it seems. No doubt concluding they are all doing a jolly good job.
  7. Though a sensible follow up question would have been if we already had too many midfielders so had to let Morrell go why did we sign Brunt?
  8. In short, I agree. There was a predictable lack of probing follow up questions from Gregor. For instance, if you not do the recruiting why does the recruitment team work to you rather than to the Head Coach or a qualified DoF, and why have you referred before to 'my database'? Do you accept that the results of an analysis have to be interpreted by a football expert not a CEO? What happens if the Head Coach rejects your entire list and presents his own? Why was Day let go and why is there no Chief Scout? Who decides what profile of player is required? The list
  9. And why risk an injury when he doesn't need to come on?
  10. Largely confirms what we knew in terms of Ashton's role and the power he has. He certainly can't be accused of lacking clarity about that. Though I find it puzzling that despite what he has said, and the club explicitly saying when he was appointed that he is in control of all day to day football operations, there are still posters who insist the Head Coach is the one with the power.
  11. Intriguing too that he gave Holden permission to play Fammy. Which means he could also have forbidden it. If he had, DH would have been the one facing questions as to why Fammy wasn't getting games, not Ashton. He would have to lie in response or drop Ashton in it. Shouldn't team selection be a matter for the Head Coach alone?
  12. Skirton/Garland/Galley/Kellard/Sharpe. My favourite 'front five'. RIP Bobby.
  13. This is a pretty good summary of what we know about the new variants, pending further data: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/dec/23/what-do-we-know-about-the-two-new-covid-19-variants-in-the-uk
  14. Napoli recently won an appeal against that decision though.
