  1. Enjoyed the game on Sat, My first visit for a number of years, Fantastic support as usual from your supporters, I think honours were even after a fast and furious game with both teams going for it with neither side wanting to settle for the draw, I know you weren’t at full strength and you might have got a different result on another day, but we are new to the PL and still learning to cope with the faster speed and quality of the game, You have got a couple of years advantage over us so we are playing catch up, we are still a couple of players short, hopefully we might see some movement in the last day of the Transfer window today. With all your new additions you will be more than comfortable this season, And I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you finish in the top 6, As for us, We have a long hard road ahead to stay up, as the odds are always against newly promoted teams like us, I would be over the moon if we manage 14th-15th place, and it won’t be for the lack of effort by TF and the team. Looking forward to your visit to our new ground on New Years Day, It will be a festive cracker hopefully.
  2. Absolutely Gutted , was looking forward to a visit to Villa Park for the first time in a few years, But I fly to Corfu the Day before, just hope with fingers crossed that I can find it Live on Sky sports as most of the bars out there have Sky, Should be a good game with Ollie up for beating his old team and Ivan Toney showing what he's about with making the step up, lt should be an interesting game, and I don't think we will roll over, I've got a good feeling with our first match at home against Arsenal, I think they might get a shock. Best of luck to Villa for the forthcoming season (but not against us) you should do very well especially with the addition of Buendia who's a fantastic player, A good bit of business done there.

    You are not wrong there with regards to his on the pitch attitude, He's a bit of an animal, But I have met both him and Ollie a couple of times at some of the Bees functions and they are both very nice guys to talk to, both very humble and thankful for where they are in life as footballers, both always had plenty of time for the fans, especially the youngsters, definitely none of the Bertie Big Bo**ocks about either of them, but just like chalk and cheese on the pitch.
  4. Thanks for all your best wishes, As a Bees supporter since 1952 I've seen it all, Saturday was one of the best days of my life (I've only just recovered) Wembley and the weather was great. We have come this far and I think and hope we will hold our own, we won't set the world on fire but we won't roll over, I think we might surprise a few teams, I don't think we are going to buy big, but use our tried as tested method. Look forward to a visit to Villa Park, it will bring back many memories of days of old. P.S. Our starting selling rate has now gone up to £35 million
  5. Season 19/20 Played a total of 51 games inc play offs and cup, This season 34 games until he got clattered from behind in Feb, rumour is he will be back for this seasons play offs, so his injury record has improved.
  6. Dean Smith had him at Walsall then signed him for Brentford, he knows exactly how he plays, until his recent injury he was the outstanding attacking full back in the Championship, he can step up to the Prem with ease, Hopefully with us, if we don't make it I can see DS coming in for him.
  7. Good shout if we don't get promoted, He all the attributes that Ollie has, plus has taken all our penalties (9) and not missed one, also tracks back very quick and more than an able defender, and that's unusual for a striker, I did say all along on this forum just how good Ollie was, In my mind Ivan is even better, and just like Ollie will have no problem stepping up to he Prem.
  8. Been totally wasted at West Ham, Moyes doesn't seem to have a clue how to play him, Hardly had a look in or a full game, although showed just what he could do when he started Monday night against Burnley, Would have done a lot better coming to you as him and Ollie had a great understanding, never mind, at least we made a few ££££'s out of him.
  9. It does indeed, £1 million for us, and we pass on about £75,000 to Exeter, win, win for both clubs, keep getting picked and scoring Ollie and that will mean even more for us both, schooled and brought up by 2 clubs who know how to treat and bring on young players, and then polished up by Villa, all credit to 3 damn good clubs
  10. Three different types of players, Maupay's work rate was questionable at times, but he knew how to score goals, Ollie a workhorse, rarely went missing, skilful and full of running, incredibly fit, again knows how to score goals, Ivan has all Ollie's attributes, but his assist rate is much better and he also is not afraid to track back and defend, so Ivan just shades it for me over Ollie. It’s ironic that if we don’t go up Ivan will be on his way for Approx £30 million, means that apart for 2 games with 2000 in attendance due to lockdown, we won’t have seen him play apart from on TV, and that’s got to be some sort of record!!!, So we then just look for the next gem.
  11. Ker-ching!! More Money for us!!, Seriously, Very well done to Ollie, I did forecast that he would play for England one day, has done so well for you and settled into the Prem with ease, We seem to have blown up again with resent results and will now struggle to get promotion yet again, if we don't, it looks like we will have another gem in Ivan Toney (27 goals already) for sale, at least another 30 Million will soften the blow, and we move on to find yet another replacement. Bit surprised Ezra Konsa didn't get picked as well, I can't understand why Eric Dier keeps his place as he's rubbish, Ezra would have been my choice.
  12. Our secret in recruitment is all down to our extensive scouting network, statistics and the backroom/coaching staff we have assembled these past few years, This is all down to our very shrewd Owner who is not only a lifelong Bees supporter but a very successful business man who Purchased the club in 2012 when we were struggling in League one, he set himself a goal of a new stadium and the PL in 10 years, he's had the stadium finished, Just promotion to the PL left. PS: Continuity is proving to be our greatest asset, for instance when DS left we knew our next Head coach was going to be TF, If and when he leaves we already know who will step into his shoes.
  13. Glad you are enjoying him as much as we did, Your fans will love him when they see him "live" I had no doubt at all that he would be nothing but a success for you as he was for us, DS knew exactly what he was getting having previously coached him, so it was a no brainer as far as buying him, I have watched a few of you games on TV and glad to see he settled down in the PL without any problem as I thought he would. Hopefully we might see him down in our new home next season, providing we don't throw the chance away again!!, we are now on a good unbeaten run, Ollie's replacement Ivan Toney has settled in very well scoring 22 Championship goals already, We have another winner in him, he will run and run all day just like Ollie, Best of luck for the rest of the season, you are playing some nice football that with continued winning could take you into Europe.
  14. He has been being training with us and played for the B team against Charlton yesterday as "An Other", The Bees GPG website has pictures of him playing, and apparently he "was on fire", We could take a gamble with him as he is a free agent with no transfer fee to be paid, we seem to get the best out of under achievers and lost souls. Who knows he might sell for £20 Million next season!!!!
  15. I remember when you signed him from us telling you that you had some player there, but on the other hand his only weakness was penalty taking, he also missed a few for us, but was then relieve of penalty duties, thank goodness we had others who never missed!!, I think Jack or Ross should be you penalty takers in future.

    Dean Smith

    Two totally different players, Maupay was/is a poacher who can score goals out of the blue and hasn't got much more in his locker, Ollie is the much better of the two and is almost the complete striker, if he carries on like he's doing at the moment he deserves to be given a try in the England team in the near future.

    Dean Smith

    Very similar, in fact watching it on Sky last night it was like a mirror image, Both hard working and very strong when in possession, they both get in the right place at the right time, The only difference I can see at the moment is that Toney tracks back to defend a lot quicker than Ollie did, apart from that they could be twins!!!. Both our teams have done some good business with them both and are now blessed with two out and out goal scorers who's price will only increase, I'm well please for DS and Villa who have got of to a great start, you can tell all the players he brought in were his choice, unlike last season when it seemed from the outside he was forced to take some players not entirely his choice?

    Dean Smith

    Try £40 million!!! He's very highly thought of by our management, another 2 tonight and he's already top scorer in the Championship, and he looks the part, we took a year to get Peterborough to sell him for a record fee, and it's paid off, just like Ollie has for you, and with our track record he's only going to get better, You heard it from me, just watch this space.
  19. You are not wrong there; he is an astute business man who owns two football clubs and the Smart Odds business. Matthew Benham is no mug and after all he is only dealing with a couple of ex Barrow Boys/Porn Merchants, his Lawyers would have worked out a signed and sealed binding contract that not even Sullivan & Gold will be unable to renegade on, he wouldn’t have agreed to the Loan/Sale terms otherwise. At the end of the day we have done a cracking bit of business, Regardless of how the money is paid, as it's common practice in football for payments to be made in installments over a few years anyway, and we have extracted at least £20-£25 million PROFIT out of Said for a few hours of drama in the window, and its not us that have been done over, as unlike Ollie I think Said was overpriced anyway. We have come out of this window with millions of £££’s profit, And in light of the economic climate due to Covid we are the clear winners, Unlike many clubs that could right now be facing financial ruin and going to the wall. Best of luck for the rest of the season, I told you all how good Ollie was, and you will be on a winner with him.
  20. And I'm sure our Lawyers won't miss a trick that the Dildo's Bros try and pull, and they will have it well under control.
  21. It's a typical Dildo Bros stalling tactic to drive the price down, he managed 46 games for us and 3 for Algeria this past season without a problem, so I can't see much wrong with him, I think we set a high price for him once Wet Spam were interested knowing that they will always kick off when it comes to spending money, by settings a high price gave us a little wiggle room for a slightly lower negotiating price if we are so inclined, we usually get what is a suitable amount we want, luckily we are not in a desperate problem financially as a lot of other teams are, But it will all unfold come 17.00 hrs today, and he could well be playing for us tomorrow if it all goes tits up.
  22. Well, You have brought a few donkeys over the past few years, but now seem to be getting it just right, I had that feeling last year that DS had to take a few players that weren't of his choosing (am I right) so far this season they seem to be more of his choice, and looking much better for it as well, I'm also so glad Ollie has got of to a good start, he will only get better as well.
  23. We purchased the land nearly 10 years ago in a backwater bordering Chiswick W4, an area that has now sky rocketed in land value so much so that we exchanged some land to developers who are building almost 900 Apartments next to the stadium, that paid for the stadium, plus I believe that we also came away with £10-£15 million pounds, we are fortunate to have an English owner who is not only a very astute business man but a life long Bee's fan who used to hitchhike up and down the country in his teens just to watch them play.
  24. Unfortunately not, there are those clubs relegated from the Prem still receiving millions of Sky money just for being failures in football terms!!!
  25. We love it, knowing that there is usually a £15 - £25 million profit to be made at the end of it
