both sides are better than that, harsh to judge them based on the game that no one can afford to lose
Hence why i said tonight's performance.. Can only judge on what I've seen of them so far this season which is tonight plus maybe a few highlights not been overly impressed then either. But like I said hopefully it is just the occasion stifling it. Another reason why I don't actually like the play off system it often promotes drab games like this.

both sides have got worse as the finish line has got closer to some degree (esp Brentford, Fulham have missed Mitrovic massively), hard to argue with a couple of additions either are any worse than several of the sides at the bottom of the prem, that said its been a pretty ordinary championship season standard wise

Without a doubt the little I've seen of them they're certainly no worse than the likes of Palace, Villa etc. But to be honest Liverpool aside its not been a vintage season for either of the 2 top divisions in English football.

Decent 2nd goal that and as poor as the game has been most of the night the better of the 2 teams has won it.

annoyed i backed Fulham in 90 mins not to go up, Brentford really been scared of the finishing line the last month sadly and carried on in a similar vein tonight, even worse for them theyre now going to struggle to keep hold of 3 or 4 of their side so will be relying on decent recruitment on a shoestring budget again

I did the same, and not just because I'm a Fulham fan. Brentford have been exceptional all season but showed a lack of experience at key moments all season.

Scott Parker is limited but ironically probably suited to a relegation scrap then a promotion push so hopeful of next season, especially with a lot of crap in the league. Owners will invest too, should learn from last time

Get in. Stopped Brentford playing although we were poor ourselves going forward bar a clever free kick and a decent finish. Lets hope we learn the lessons of last time and don't make silly buys and play like 11 individuals instead of a team. Will be hard again. It'll be about winning the mini league around the bottom six clubs. That's to come but going to enjoy the rest of my week off especially at the club with the other Fulham fans and the beers are flowing.

Disgusted to see Arsenal making 55 redundancies to normal staff whilst the likes of Ozil collects 350k a week for doing the square root of sweet fa! Or maybe we shouldnt be gifting 10m+ a year to Jorabchian and his agent pals for bringing us dodgy centre halfs (expect releasing him wouldve saved more than the wages of the 55 being made redundant!)

Expect we will be paying 200k a week to another ex Chelsea has been soon too

Football really does itself no favours some times :(

It actually gets worse, seems theyre also getting rid of most of the scouting department under the guise of covid19 redundancies in favour of being in Jorabchian and his agents mates pockets even more going forward :(
