Premier League: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Brentford

By Score More The only Sunday Premier League match took place at The City Ground, where Nottingham Forest aimed to secure their second home win of the season after suffering defeat against Manchester City in their previous outing. Brentford, managed by Thomas Frank, sought to bounce back from a disappointing home defeat by Everton. The game began with a poignant tribute to Maddy Cusack, a Forest academy product who tragically passed away the previous week. Once the match started, Steve Cooper's Forest side attempted to take control early on. They earned an early free kick, which was taken by Callum Hudson-Odoi, but Brentford defended it well. Brentford struggled to establish themselves in the opening minutes and believed they had conceded a goal in the 8th mi...

Premier League: Brentford 1-3 Everton

By Score More Everton delivered a superb performance against Brentford, displaying confidence and resilience that suggested they are not destined for a relegation battle this season. James Tarkowski, leading against his former club, was outstanding, providing both defensive stability and posing a threat in attack. Abdoulaye Doucoure's exceptional performance included scoring his seventh goal in his last 16 league games, showcasing his impact. Despite Doucoure hitting the woodwork in the first half, Brentford quickly equalized through Mathias Jensen. However, Dominic Calvert-Lewin later sealed the game for Everton, resulting in a jubilant celebration with Doucoure, encapsulating the evening's success. In his 250th professional game, Calvert-Lewin, who has faced injury challenges, fou...

Premier League: Newcastle 1-0 Brentford

By Score More Newcastle overcame moments of nervousness and anxiety to secure their first victory since the opening day's triumph against Aston Villa, edging out Brentford 1-0 at St James' Park on Saturday. The timing of this win couldn't have been better, as Newcastle is on the brink of its much-anticipated return to Champions League football this week. They are set to face a formidable challenge against AC Milan at San Siro on Tuesday evening. It's a stern test, but it's precisely what the club and its fans have yearned for all along—the hope that endured throughout the gloomy Mike Ashley era, the aspiration to see the club reclaim its rightful place. Eddie Howe made significant changes ahead of Brentford's visit to St James' Park. Callum Wilson, Harvey Barnes, Elliot Anderson, an...

Premier League: Brentford 2-2 Bournemouth

By Score More David Brooks' long-awaited Premier League goal since his recovery from cancer couldn't secure Bournemouth their first win under the guidance of Andoni Iraola. Brooks, who bravely battled Hodgkin lymphoma two years ago and last found the net in the top flight in July 2020, capitalized on Brentford's missed opportunities late in the second half. He tapped in after Rico Henry's misplayed backpass, completing a remarkable personal journey and seemingly sealing the win for his team. Dominic Solanke had previously equalized for Bournemouth after Mathias Jensen's surprising opener from a free-kick. Andoni Iraola appeared poised for his first victory as Cherries boss after joining from Rayo Vallecano this summer. However, Bryan Mbeumo's stoppage-time equalizer denied him all thr...

Premier League: Brentford 1-1 Crystal Palace

By Score More Roy Hodgson heaped praise on Joachim Andersen following Crystal Palace's hard-fought 1-1 draw against Brentford, during which the defender's late and scrappy equalizer salvaged a point for his team. Andersen managed to poke the ball past goalkeeper Mark Flekken with just 14 minutes left on the clock. Prior to that, Kevin Schade had given Brentford a deserved lead in the first half, unleashing a magnificent finish from within the left channel. After a first half dominated by Brentford, Crystal Palace improved their performance in the second half. However, frustration loomed as Flekken thwarted Jefferson Lerma, Jordan Ayew, and Odsonne Edouard with a series of smart second-half saves. Roy Hodgson, the manager of Palace, regarded Andersen as the standout player on the fi...

Premier League: Brentford Secure Convincing Victory Over Fulham Despite Red Card

By Score More Brentford emerged triumphant against west London rivals Fulham with a 3-0 victory, despite being reduced to 10 men at Craven Cottage. Yoane Wissa's early strike and Bryan Mbeumo's brace sealed the comfortable win for Brentford in a heated derby clash. Fulham's Issa Diop committed a costly defensive error that led to Wissa's goal just before half-time, as he rounded goalkeeper Bernd Leno to give the Bees the lead. In the 64th minute, Wissa was brought down by Tim Ream in the box, resulting in Ream's second yellow card and a penalty for Brentford, which Mbeumo calmly converted. Brentford sealed their victory with Mbeumo's third goal in the 92nd minute, tapping in a low cross from Kristoffer Ajer. This win marked Brentford's fifth victory in eight games against Fulham ...

Tottenham Draws 2-2 Against Brentford in Premier League Opener Without Kane

By Score More Tottenham secured a 2-2 draw against Brentford in their Premier League season opener, marking their first match after the departure of the iconic Harry Kane, the club's all-time top scorer, who recently signed with Bayern Munich. Under the guidance of Australian coach Ange Postecoglou (formerly with Celtic), Tottenham initially took the lead as Cristian Romero scored in the 11th minute. However, Brentford managed to turn the tables before halftime with goals from Bryan Mbeumo (26' penalty) and Yoane Wissa (36'). Just before the break, Emerson Royal (45+1') netted a goal that allowed Tottenham to go into halftime level. This score remained unchanged in the second half. Spanish full-back Pedro Porro, previously with Sporting, was an unused substitute. It was a challengi...
