The Opposition View - Brentford

The Opposition View - Brentford


In the wake of yesterday's 1-0 defeat to Brentford, here are some views on the game from Bees' manager Uwe Rosler and a few of their fans.

"I'm very pleased with the overall performance, we controlled the first half, gave them nothing, created chances and scored a goal," said the Brentford boss.

"We lost control early in the second half and dropped too deep, particularly the back four. Wycombe picked up the second balls and established their play, but having said that, our back four defended excellently in the box."

"Their chances were mainly long range shots and Richard Lee is an excellent shot stopper, from distance it takes a lot to beat him."

Rosler finished by praising the Bees' travelling support.

"Our support was magnificent today," he said. "We were away from home and our supporters completely dominated the atmosphere in the stadium. It was fantastic to see the whole stand full of our supporters - it gives us confidence, motivation and we wanted to give them something back."

"We realised it was a derby game and we had to put a real shift in."


The Brentford fans were delighted to collect all three points from a less than impressive performance.

"Had Wycombe not given away cheap fouls, knocked passes into touch so often and wasted their many set pieces, then perhaps they could have found a goal or two. They look a poor side when you consider that for 60 minutes at home they controlled the game and couldn't break down a team in 3rd gear. It suggests they may struggle for goals all season. I thought Grant and McCoy were best for them and Beavon had the potential to grab a goal given half a chance.'


Mikel wrote:
"Third away win in a row but not exactly the greatest performance I have ever seen. Lee came to our rescue at least three times with stunning saves. Can't remember a shot from us in the second half, our moves came to nothing in the latter stages of the game, indeed Wycombe seemed more likely to win.'

"If I was a WW supporter I would be extremely aggrieved to come away from today with nothing. Wrong end to see the penalty decision but Lee made four unbelievable saves.'

"The penalty looked fair enough, not sure what their centre back was thinking.'

"I'm struggling to work out if we are any good or just plain lucky.'


Guildford Bee wrote:
"I don't buy into the old adage that the sign of a good team is one that wins when it's not playing well. In my experience that's the sign of a team whose luck is about to run out. Second half we were so poor I have no idea how we got away with 3 points. Wycombe worked us out in the same way other teams have, it just took them 45 minutes longer to do it.'


Kingston Bee wrote:
"Sometimes you just have to take the result over the performance, but unless we get our act together, better teams than Wycombe will take us to the cleaners.'


BrentfordBees wrote:
"We were quite lucky in the end to be honest. We deserved the lead at half time but Wycombe came out and attacked us and if Lee hadn't made three or four superb saves Wycombe probably would have won. The penalty looked soft but sometimes they go your way.'


sonofabee wrote:
"We sat back and allowed a very, very poor Wycombe side to dominate and I don't recall us forcing Bull into action. Thankfully they don't have a forward and resorted to long range shots that Lee dealt with. They were poor with the exception of their right back McCoy who was strong defensively and caused us problems going forward - thank goodness he only had Strevens to aim at.'
