    Brentford

    Probably off limits but,
    Sold their 2 best players and still pushing for promotion.
    Any worthwhile observations ?
    Emphasis on worthwhile.

    Recruitment is one of the best in Europe.
    Already they will be looking at a replacement for Ivan Toney who cost 10 million and now 25 to 30 is branded about.
    Good manager play a very good style of football
    Good owner, good recruitment.

    They are very good at picking up players other youth systems reject too.

    Loved their old ground albeit it wasn’t a very happy hunting ground for us.

    Used to drink in a pub by the river and then walk up. New ground looks a little soulless in comparison

    Ran us close last year, onlyfalterd in their last few games, honestly thought they would catch us or at least west brom, sold their 2 best, and seem to have recruited better, scoring for fun like last season, think they'll do it this season, we never done well against them but got respect for the way they play, and although their manager can be a bit of a **** at times, he's done well.

    They must have 5 - 10 players now playing in the prem with other teams.

    Like their left back - Rico Henry - quick of mind fast and can cross.

    Can't think of any club at any level that recruits and reloads as well as they do. pretty incredible.

    Like the style they play as well.

    they might be a problem if they get promoted and kept some of their players.
