Championship Playoff final Brentford v Fulham

Post by CIH » Tue Aug 04, 2020 7:08 pm

Been a decent game so far, Fulham mostly in control but haven't seriously threatened. Josh Onamoah has been quite lively for Fulham in the opening minutes.

Yeah had one eye on it - hope Brentford come up as I like to see new teams in the PL.

Yeah I've not really got a dog in this fight, but it is always good to have a new boy. Rico Henry with a good cross in that came to nothing, decent chance for Brentford though. Only reason I'd like to see Fulham win is to get Mitrovic back in the prem. But we could just sign him instead <gent>

Another reason I wouldn't mind Fulham up, I do like Scott Parker. Good player, good captain, shaping up to be a decent manager.

Just put it on, must nearly be time for Mitrovic?

I am surprised he hasn't come on already, I'm guessing he's not fully fit. Maybe Parker wants to use him as a final ten minutes weapon to really hammer at tired Brentford legs. Tactics are clearly set up to stretch Brentford so far and control that midfield.

Second half hasn’t been great.

Yeah he missed the semi with injury and you've got to question how badly he is injured considering he's still not on here.

Cairney was definitely a bullet dodged when we were linked with him.

Yep.

Another plus if Brentford win is that we might get to see Knockaert crying.

I think that suspension for the naughty elbow a few weeks ago was the first one since we sold him haha.

Great improvisation but so poor from the keeper

The Mitro effect. Throttle the CB so the keeper think the action will be in the middle then let Bryan shoot.

If Fulham do hold on then they need to sign a lot of players. Really not a good side.

Signing a lot of players was their mistake last time. Should have tried to sign a few quality players rather than loads of dross.
