      Time to celebrate the King!

      Can he score in a 9th consecutive home game?

      Robertson should be back in the side. Not sure if Henderson will start as he seemed to take a knock late against Fulham.

      Jota or Nunez, Diaz or Gakpo...

      Henderson touch and go and reckon Jota will only start on bench as still struggling . Robbo back probably and Eliott for Henderson if not fit. 3-1 I reckon with a brace from.Nunez

      Have the club actually agreed to playing the national anthem? F***ing hell.

      Hope Big Virg the Colossus, turns up for this game as he's gonna go up against Ivan Toney who just likes scoring for fun.

      This is gonna be one hell of a tough game.

      It is a real test, we should be careful with their threat upfront.

      Fabinho, Jones and Elliott in midfield since the others are doubtful.

      Gakpo back in the starting XI.

      Yeah Tommy Frank their Danish coach is a clever tactician. Chelsea or Spurs will eventually appoint him. Tried everybody else. We will have to be patient as well as they will drop deep. But they can play and it won't be a forgone conclusion.

      2-0

      Think these are a bigger threat than spurs were.
      VVD have to bring his A game to shackle Tomy.
      And I’m never confident defensively with Jones and Elliot starting together. Don’t think they offer enough cover.

      Going for 3:1 but only if we start with the same intensity as of late, but keep it going into the second half as well.

      Our dropping off second half is causing us to be really vulnerable. Need to cut that out !

      Hendo being iffy I think Elliott will get a start. With Trent coming into mid as and when, Elliott is better suited playing off Mo than Hendo.

      It's a position that needs looking at. To get in more goal threat and imagination from midfield.

      Ali...Trent...Konate...V VD...Robbo...Elliott...F abinho...Jones...Mo...Ga kpo...Diaz.

      It sums up our drop off this season that a home fixture against Brentford can summon so much trepidation. We're on a decent run of results, albeit with some luck. Play to our strengths and we should come out with 3 points....2-0

      5 wins and 2 draws is better than a decent run  its a 92 point season so f***in well done to Jürgen and the boys lets make it another 3 points today.  This is our pre season preparation and we could well win every game we have left .

      We have rode our luck in the last few games. Have a feeling we will need more today, they have absolutley nothing to lose, if Forest caused us chaos then christ knows what this lot are going to do.
      We have to outscore them, can see another 4-3 or 6-5 hopefully to us.

      F**k - Forest caused mayhem with their throws. Just don’t understand why we can’t handle it with 2 giant centre backs and a tall keeper. Weird.
