How did Brentford’s season end before the World Cup stopped?
Position: Tenth (19 points)
Top scorer: Evan Toni (11 goals)
Next three matches: Tottenham (home), West Ham (away), Liverpool (home).
Barring a 5-1 display of terror at Newcastle and a 4-0 defeat away to Aston Villa, Brentford have quashed any speculation as to whether they were poised to be the next victims of the legendary ‘Season Two Syndrome’ by the time the Premier League ceased to exist. for the World Cup last month. If this is not the case already, then it seems that they have largely established themselves as part of the furniture on the upper flight.
And who can forget the way they entered the break? Days after an embarrassing Carabao Cup penalty shoot-out defeat against Gillingham, they went into the Etihad as complete underdogs, but failed to break out and came away with a fully deserved 2-1 victory over reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.
Evan Tunney, star of the bee mascot, was in the spotlight a lot that afternoon. He responded to Gareth Southgate’s decision to drop him from the England squad by scoring both goals, which left many questioning why he didn’t travel to Qatar, particularly given his impressive penalty-taking record and the fact that he was the second best English player in the league with 10 goals. Goals behind Harry Kane only.
Just a few days later, it was revealed that Tony had been charged with over 232 alleged violations of betting rules between February 2017 and January 2021.
He was part of Brentford’s trip to Spain earlier this month and played an active role in mid-season friendlies against Bordeaux, Celta Vigo and Wolfsburg, but then came the news on Tuesday of an additional charge of 30 alleged violations.
If the allegations are proven against him, the attacker could face a lengthy ban. Given the fact that he’s scored 11 of Brentford’s 26 goals in all competitions so far this season – with Brian Mbeumu and Yoann Wissa following with three each – you get the feeling the Bees will somewhat watch over his shoulder in regards to developments in the saga.
And for a long time
