Brentford....what a terrific club...where we should be!? 20:30 - Aug 22 with 2684 viewsN2_Blue

Love what Brentford have done over the last 5 years. This is what we should be but are so far off them. It's sad because we shouldn't be behind clubs like Brentford, a side that has never been in the premier league. Have just consistently built themselves up.

Their manager was speaking so well on Talksport this moring, said they go into every game trying to win it, where as he knows many managers play not to get beaten especially away from home...hmm that sounds familiar!

Play such great attacking football too. Put Rotherhams to the sword opening day, a side we failed to even score against.

Brentford have had the luxury of having the same footballing philosophy for quite a few seasons. We haven’t. We have PJ, Keane and Mick. All three have been totally different and one of the reasons for the football being all over the place. Hurst is trying to play good passing football but it will take time.

Do you know what their results were like 4 games into the five years you mention?

Maybe we are at the start of our own five year period?

erm no, because i'm an Ipswich supporter..but doesn't mean I can't look at them thinking why are we so far behind a club of their size.

Maybe we are on the way up and a new approach is going to get us going again season after season, but it doesn't particularly feel like it.

I'm fully behind Hurst but wish he had more an attacking philosphy. Playing one up front with the strikers we have just isn't going to work. Its notable that shrewsbury won most games 1-0 last season, hardly enterprising stuff although i'll take any kind of win right now....but thats what we didn't give Mick credit for.

No doubting their more recent current achievements. Their history in the first and third decade of 20th century was almost as good as our best. I recall them though often as a bottom tier club, as the stadium continues to bear witness.

This is their modern-era glory; it probably won't get any better. And when the current regime dwindles away, they'll probably settle down to L1 existence - a slightly superior Wimbledon.

Good luck to them. But building something is precisely where Town are currently at. Let's get onboard and enjoy the very fact that the football itself is, at last, enjoyable. Any student of football history should know that, as long as we stay up this season, there's an interesting prospect on the horizon - and maybe, even if we don't!

To misquote:
Patience is a virtue, possess it if you can, seldom found in football, almost never in a fan.

"So far behind them"

We've been in the same division as them for about 4/5 years and have finished roughly the same position as them every year. Have a word with yourself. Div

Wow, i didn't realise that actually. Surprised by that but doesn't seem to do them any harm. At least they have a clear strategy and appears to be working for them.

Mind you, we need Hurst to show a bit more faith in some of our own otherwise it is going to be a bit pointless

We had the same philosophy for the last five years, it was just the wrong one.

They certainly seem a club that make steady progress season on season and have a clear strategy. Their recruitment is terrific and as an Ipswich fan you can’t help but look at them with a little bit of envy. They have got a lot of things right both on and off the field.

Brentford are the Championship version of Peterborough. Everyone loves their buy/sell model and the way they operate but ultimately they've had no real tangible success on the pitch in recent seasons.

25 league wins for Shrewsbury last season of which 9 were 1-0.

That’s not most, you made that up.

Wake up. PH philosophy is not one of attacking expansive football, look bac at his Shrewsbury team, a team built on hard work, balls into the channels with high pressing. He plays the exact same way as MM did.

So - just to be clear - we're "miles behind" a club who's average league position in the champs over the last 4 years is 8.25 ( ITFC is 10.25)
Average points per season is 69 ( ITFC is 65.5)

So we're basically 3pts , and a couple of places behind this team... I'm not a qualified statistician, but even I know that those numbers are not statistically different enough to draw any conclusions.

Interesting question actually

Do we continue to spend what we do to maintain it, staffing etc. With minimal outcome. At present, the ones we thought were going to progress aren't involved.

The younger ones coming through who have big potential are being taken by the bigger sides.
