Hendo Wonder if Brentford don't go up, they'll end up struggling next year. Especially, like you said, when they eventually lose Toney to a Prem team.


Agree - you can't guarantee getting it right time and time again, they could well sign a couple of less effective players

I'd also imagine the likes of Mbuemo would fancy a move to the prem if they miss out

They have no academy set up to speak of so are reliant on quality signings, throw a couple of duds in and the picture soon changes.

Yep, even an 80% success rate sees them drift sooner or later.

Won’t they just play Marcus Forss and change their style slightly to adapt to him. He has been a bit part player this season but if played as the number 1 striker and played every week I could see him being a great option to replace Toney if he did go.
