Didn't know if anyone had seen the interview with the new sporting director



As people pointed out on twitter he does look like Richard Madeley

“Jack probably saw me coming and thought 'Brentford are a total footballing team' yet all the work last week has been without the ball!”

“I like the fact he was looking at getting into the penalty box on Saturday which is something I think he can improve upon."

“He doesn’t have the goals and assists someone of his talent should and that is for me and the coaching staff to help him work on."

“They’ve showed me that they are certainly coachable and take things on board quite well.”

I'm willing to be that Deano doesn't once blame the players for not doing what he wanted them to do.

I agree as had Potato Head still been with us and we had won against Swansea the interview would have been all about whingeing fans, how he does know what he is doing and how his past record of getting teams promoted is second to none? Had we lost it would have been all the players faults?
It was refreshing to hear from a manager/coach who had actually witnessed and participated in a coaching session?

A whole bunch of the best of the U23's now training with the first team squad inc O'Hare,Doyle-Hayes,Bedau and Blackett-Taylor.
This was one of the things I was wishing for from DS.
The U23's still managed a very creditable draw against the Tesco's despite missing at least 6 regulars and the Tesco's fielding half their first team squad.

We've got a new goalkeeping coach, Neil Cutler has been brought in from West Brom, he's previously worked with Smith at Walsall.

It worries me that Nyland is considered the best of the bunch, the rest should hang their boots up then, if that is the case!

What we need to remember is how poor Johnstone was when he first joined us in the January window? Goalkeepers need games and a settled back 4 in front of them? I also hope that this was the game when Chester returned to his best?

I am glad that Smith is playing round pegs in round holes and we just need to sort out the wingers and we are balanced?

Nyland's confidence improves with each game! Terrific today apparently! Two clean sheets in a row! Chester and Tuanzebe solid! McGinn and Grealish terrorizing defences and scoring!

All this side needed was proper coaching!

We’re seeing the results of the managerial change quicker than we probably thought. The shackles are off. We have ourselves a calm, measured, yet emotionally attached coach who knows how to get what he wants on the football pitch. If only the change had been made that 4 or 5 games earlier. Never mind, I see plenty of games left in a division which, this season, no one team is running away with. We’ve luck to thank for that! It needs to be pointed out that the two teams we lost away to are two form teams of this league, Norwich went top and QPR won again. We could, and perhaps should, have at least got a point from each game if not all 3. Deano now has another couple of weeks to further integrate his ideas and methods onto the squad, albeit there’ll be a few internationals away with their countries. Things are looking up.
