The Week that was...

Last updated : 15 August 2005 By Smallsy
So finally the season arrived, expectations were high last week at Griffin Park as Brentford took on newcomers Scunthorpe in our first game of the season.

A new look Brentford team, missing the likes of captain Talbot and last seasons joint top scorer Burton, new heros looked to make themselves a name.

One managed to get himself a goal, from a penalty and the likes of Brooker and Skulason played well enough to make the fans think that last season success could be repeated.

A 2-0 victory in the sunshine of West London was a great start, as we travelled up to Yorkshire for our second game, the question remained whether of not we could improve on our inconsistency from 2004/05, so far it looks like we can as we picked up an impressive 3-1 victory in a tough game away from home.

Another away test comes on Monday, live on sky as Allen has his team have a chance to show the whole nation what they can do. With the disapointing injury to Oli midweek, it's a important that whoever takes his place continues the excellent job that the young man started off in securing the link between our defense and our midfield.

Port Vale will be an interesting test as Brentford will be looking to extend their 100%, however our hosts will not be looking to roll over and lose theirs as easily as we may wish.
