    Well I hate to start this thread off this way. Less than a year after Fulham opened their Premier League season with a 3-0 loss to Arsenal, Brentford went and opened their inaugural Premier League season with a 2-0 win against Arsenal. *sigh*

    Outclassed them as well. Arsenal was never in the match. The "Sacked in the Morning" song started right after the first goal. It was interesting to see a newly-promoted SW London team score and early goal and then immediately continue to attack instead of deciding to defend a 1-0 lead for 3/4 of the match.

    Oh, one thing about our neighbors ... when Arsenal subbed in their much maligned EURO2020 striker in the second half, the Brentford supporters stood as one to cheer him onto the pitch. Take THAT racist bastards. Classy, Brentford!

    Not a Spuds fan whatsoever, but found myself pulling for them. One reason obviously because of Citeh and their budget. When you can overspend for a good but not great player like Grealish aka the British Neymar (who is a worse flopper in the Prem?) by double/triple what he's worth, it's a joke. The other reason is the new manager Nuno. He's a breath of fresh air compared to the Not So Special One. Nuno might have been the 5th or 6th choice, but his philosophy is it's about the players, while the last guy it was about him and him alone. Spuds were fortunate, but not unworthy of the 3 points.
