Sat 29 May 15:00 Wembley Stadium
Championship Play-Off Final
Brentford v Swansea City
It’s coming, it’s the big one. The culmination of a season’s work and 46 games, where the result of this one match decides our fate, whether we are in tears at the end and still paupers or we are joyous and accept the biggest prize in football, a £130m plus windfall.
The winner takes all, there is nothing for the losers, so we better make sure we win.
We beat Reading in the 2011 Play-Off Final, and Reading have been in the wilderness ever since. We don’t want that to happen to us.

6’ Grimes booked for sliding tackle
9’ Toney penalty after Woodman foul 1-0
We couldn’t have had a worse start.
Brentford love in from the Sky Sports commentators continues, they’re relishing it.

Goodbye Swans 2-0 down.
20’ breakaway goal as per Barnsley second leg, Swans wide open, two against two, Grimes races back, Guehi very slow getting back and fails to stop Marcondes, whose low drive beats Woodman.
Toney just hit the bar.
Nightmare start, Cooper playing with a back three and we are wide open. Bitterly disappointing this.
Brentford players diving everywhere to get free kicks.

Something’s got to change or we’re only going to conceded more goals. We’re losing the ball all over the field, has the occasion got to us?
We have under performed so far.
I want to see us come out fighting second half instead of continuously passing back.

62’ Hourihane off, Dhanda on, really?
65’ Fulton sent off, slipped into tackle and punished.
Ref didn’t hesitate, but replays showed Fulton slipped, wrong decision ref,
and once again you changed the game in Brentford’s favour.
Ref giving Brentford everything

70’ Grimes free kick can’t even lift it past the first man
71’ another dubious free kick given by this crap ref right in front of goal for Brentford, lifted over the bar, good enough

76’ Bidwell passes back from the half-way line, why?
Brentford time wasting, but there’s no need, we are no threat, zero shots on target, which is shameful.
