Bit harsh for me that, Sid. Lacked a bit of spark in terms of end product, but much better in terms of energy. Reality is, without Casemiro and Eriksen, its a big, big drop off.
Shite is probably strong when you factor in it was a high pressure game against a team that battered us previously. I noticed Martinez celebrating quietly at around 88 mins when a Brentford shot went over the bar.

It was just a frustrating one cos I wanted more goals but it just never felt likely. And I think we were helped by Brentford sitting deep and not pressing.

Also as a side it felt like there was a huge drop off in energy from both teams mid way through the second half. You can tell there are just 10 games less and that many players played a world cup inbetween. Mad really.
Yeah I get all that. There's still a lot to do here. If I stop and really think about how many ins and outs are needed to make us a tip side, we need 6 or 7 in. And probably double that going out
