I have blessed many rains, so many rains. Specifically in Africa. Everyone knows I love blessing the rains down in Africa, to the likes of which no one has ever seen. Since I have been blessing the rains down in Africa, there have been so many rains. Bigly rains. Ocean sized rains. The leagues that had their rains blessed by me have made big league impacts. Even the fake news has said these are bigly big league rains, all because I blessed those rains down in Africa. That is why I am issuing an executive order to permanently bless the rains down in Africa and to Make Blessing the Rains Down in Africa Great Again!

Entertaining game result to one side and 6 of the 7 goals right in front on us.

Two early goals of real quality fron Rovers but on the ball Brentford were just a different class. They were always going to score goals today, 5 was a little cruel in the end but some very good football on display.

Probably the only thing that annoyed me was their first as we were a touch untidy with on the ball and was very easy for them. Got the feeling that they knew they’d comfortably get back in the game.

We will have these days this season much like Bristol and Swansea away. Learn from it and move on to the next match.

Pretty much what everyone said was right. Losing Dack is crushing, and not having Graham there either was doubling that effect. Didn't see much of Brereton but I have my doubts about him for the rest of the season.

I am fine with sitting mid-table this season. Would love to see another push for playoffs down the stretch but Raya needs so much more experience to work out all these blunders.

Thor, Brereton did nothing wrong when he came on and was one of the few players still looking to get the ball moving and get in behind. I’d go as far to say he was our second best performer after Armstrong.

I also think he’s a better than Nuttall, who has the potential to be an excellent 6 yard box striker but is severely lacking in every other aspect of his game. Point in case on Saturday the decision to shoot from 20yards with 2 men blocking the route to goal instead of playing Brereton through for a simple one on one.
