Brentford vs Fulham (the richest game in football)

Post by tiger76 » Tue Aug 04, 2020 2:41 pm

I fancy Brentford to edge it 2-1 they've got more match winners in their squad, and you feel this is vital to them, if they don't make it up this time then they'll struggle to hold on to their stars, whereas Fulham will come again.

Plus it'd be great to see a new name in the PL, and for the fans that travel they might be able to visit a new stadium depending on the state of the restrictions by then.

I've nothing against Fulham, but I'm hoping Brentford make the step up. Fulham will come again regardless. Brentford on the other hand, with so many players being eyed and admired elsewhere, may have an oh so difficult month or so before the new season starts if the exit door starts opening. They'll probably never have a better chance, and I'd love to see it happen.

I'd prefer Brentford but Fulham played some good stuff over the SF two legs.

The fact that this is the richest game in world football to be mentioned at least a dozen times during Sky coverage.

That is a pretty safe prediction :lol: :lol:

I’m not sure whether Cardiff and Swansea were ever successful in trying to move out of the FAW into the FA.

Tempted to have a decent bet on Brentford to be promoted. Mitrovic can't be fully fit and the other lad who scored Kebano also went off last game with a hamstring. 8/13 seems a fair price

Mitrovic on bench, but their record without him is pretty good.

I’ve said today that I think Fulham will win so it’s probably going to be Brentford. Looking forward to the game though.

Not really seen much of Brentford this season but early stages they seem to be a pass for the sake of passing team. Left to right, back again and repeat across their own penalty area followed by a long ball. Let's see how the game unfolds....

Quite a slow start, Brentford checking back when 1v1 and there's a chance to hit the dead ball line.
All this we will attack attack attack looks a bit false.

Fulham might do a job on them here, Brentford look nervous.

Fulham.at 3/1 looks a good bet

( although I want Brentford for new ground tick )

Nearly the opener from Fulham. Good save from ex-Venky Raya.

We played them in the FA Cup in Jan ‘65. They played in a blue so dark it looked black.

We were linked with Harrison Reed recently and I can see why Dyche would want him. Performs that Cork sweeping up role nicely.

It's not the most thrilling of play off finals is it, hopefully it'll improve 2nd half.

Harrison Reed is treading a thin line, that tackle could have seen red on another day.

Fancy Brentford to do Fulham. Fulham pass it about to much without creating a great deal.

Just out of interest .... normally the losers of this game get the gate receipts to compensate a bit for the winners getting the PL money 🤔🤔🤔

Isn’t that usually an agreement between the two clubs?

As for the game - over an hour gone and nothing to get excited about

Brentford have choked twice v Stoke and then Barnsley, looks like this might be the 3rd time.

If they do go up, they need to invest heavily, last 3 times I've seen them in the aforementioned games, theyve looked a poor side ( obviously not eith their league position)

This is that poor, they should both have to stay in the championship, and we run next season with 19 teams with only 2 relegated.
