I disagree. I think Cresswell would have been a better option than Harrison, even if it'd meant moving Ayling over. Don't know why you think that would have meant moving Dallas over as well. Firpo looked comfortable at lwb. Losing Kalvin is always going to hurt us, especially while Struijk is out, but we weren't great before our goal, and we were awful for most of the second half. Our passing was as bad as its been in any game recently.

Funniest thing about that Victor Orta losing his shit video, he hides behind the big security fella like he’s holding him back and you can see he’s not touching the silly cunt.

I'm working on the idea Firpo needed to be LCB as the only left footed option available. I don't like Ayling at CB really, not even in a 3 but especially not on the left side of it. He did well enough today though.

If we look at our injuries this season they have been so disruptive.

From memory injuries have caused us to use either as starters or filling in during games:

4 different RB's
4 different LB's
7 different CB's (Koch has not yet featured)
6 different players in the combined 4 & 8 role
6 different players in the Wing positions
5 different players at 10
5 different players at 9

ok some of the above positions have been filled with utility players in Dallas & Shackleton but even with some injuries last season players like Bamford, Harrison, Ayling, Klich, Raphinha, Phillips & Dallas were more or less ever present. This season all of those mentioned apart from Dallas have missed a sizeable chunk of the matches. That is without mentioning Struijk, Llorente, Koch, Firpo & Rodrigo who have all missed matches as well.

There is no way we were going to get rhythm and momentum into our season with the injury list we continue to have.

It is hard to judge how well or poorly we are doing considering the above and I am happy to have taken 4 points from our last 2 games.

I reckon Cresswell wasn’t used as Brentford had two mobile forwards with Canos starting alongside Mbeumo. If they had a taller stronger striker we would have put Cresswell on.

Was never a better time to beat them, at home and thet were missing three of their better players

Did they make much of a thing about the bottle throwing incident after their second? Presumably we’re going to get a little bit fucked for that?

My mates who were at the game thought we improved after Harrison came on, so they'd probably agee with you about the substitution, at least in hindsight. We always struggle with a back three, but I thought our overall play today was mediocre. Luckily that will probably be enough this season. I'm constantly surprised when I think back to our time in the championship, and how the gulf between us and any EPL team seemed so gigantic at the time. Surely the average quality of EPL teams is lower today than it was pre covid?

Most positive from today was Firpo who is starting to look a lot more confident.

I thought it was just another example of play-acting. The player who was "felled" looked from my angle as though he might have been struck by an empty plastic beer glass. Had somebody shot Canos with a musket, he should have thought himself lucky, after his blatent attempt to provoke the crowd. But of course you only get yellow cards for celebrating with the home fans (Rapha against Leicester).

didn't someone throw a drink at him? literally the liquid and not the bottle.

It's hard to really judge but ultimately football is just football, there's not a lot to separate most teams, just consistency (within the game as well as across games). When we came up the gulf was big for us but we play in a way which was a bit of a leveler. We still find our opponents regulatory state that know they've been in a game but they also happen to be taking away a result with them more often than not now. They have first hand experience of what we're like and not just their mates telling them we're tough to play.

If we could put our best performances on the pitch more often we'd be European challengers, we've undoubtedly improved since the promotion season but we're generally against teams much better than Preston and Birmingham.

I felt Brentford deserved something from the game, they exploited the momentary reasons with Phillips injured and after taking the lead they were disciplined enough for us to be unable to lay a glove on them while our own fuck ups threatened to give them a 3rd. We were better than them but not be enough to nullify them.

14th place, and 6 points clear of relegation. Happy enough

I appreciate that this is just a very smal extract from a longer post but I don't agree. Brentford had a 10 minute spell when we fell apart but their first goal was a surprise, as they hadn't offered anything up to that point and the goal itself was a half-hearted mis-kick following a deflected cross. There are two aspects to the "deserve" part - did they have more control of the game and more goal attempts? - No. Did their constant time-wasting which involved winning dubious fouls and then all their players ignoring and walking away from the ball rather than taking the free-kick; or their players falling in a heap after hacking the ball clear from their penalty area, in order that the ref gave them back the ball despite Leeds being in possession, or their keeper collapsing injured every time he fumbled the ball justify them getting something from the game? I think that if we had started with two wingers and a genuine striker, we would have won confortably. In the end a draw was fair as both sides scored twice but I don't think Brentford deserved their point.

I missed this due to being a cunt watching on TV.

They didn't show Victor losing his shit, either.

Edit: Chubbs posted it

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Just watched the dugout camera view for Patrick's equaliser, and I shall be returning to its warm embraces.
