Ealing Road Comedies: Where have we gone under Uwe Rosler?
This was a season that began with plenty of optimism and enthusiasm, but fast forward three months and that has been replaced by a vicious cocktail of disappointment and confusion.
Where has it all gone wrong and who ought to shoulder the blame?
Uwe Rosler has been at the helm for more than 125 Brentford matches and I am starting to question just how much progress the Bees have made in that time.
They may have been one kick away from Championship football last season but it was criminal promotion had not been secured well before then.
The league was as weak as it had been in years, but Rosler’s negative tactics and over-cautious attitude managed to snatch failure from the jaws of glory.
It should never have come down to one kick.
The baffling tactics, strange selections and negativity have continued into the new campaign.
We finished last week’s match at Stevenage with Adam Forshaw on the wing, Alan McCormack at right-back and Harlee Dean up front.
All while top goalscorer Farid El-Alagui is sat on the bench watching Trotta start ahead of him time and again.
Why oh why: Farid El-Alagui is spending too long on the bench when Bees need goals
Rosler is a manager who fears the opposition more than he trusts his own players.
I was convinced of this after watching Brentford draw at strugglers Shrewsbury Town last season.
People say a manager should be given until Christmas at least, but for me, I feel as though this particular race has been run.
Brentford should be bold and assertive and make the change now to stop this season from being a slow death.
