Most fans would think that Brentford have had a good season. At the beginning of the season, one might have thought that the aim was to consolidate in the division with a lower mid-table place being acceptable. However, instead, they are in the play off places. They will be tough opponents on Saturday.
However, manager Mark Warburton has been told that he will be let go at the end of the season. Owner Matthew Benham, who has big ambitions for the Bees, thinks that the former currency trader is not scientific enough. A continental coach is just what is needed and he has someone from Spain lined up to succeed.
It seems to me that Warburton would make a decent coach at Charlton. He can get a team without individual stars to play together. Perhaps he has a long lost Belgian grandmother?
Brentford have now issued a partial denial of the story, saying that they are planning for 'various possible eventualities': Ambiguity
