Opposition View: ‘Brentford’s priority will always be to stay up until we can establish ourselves’

We caught up with Brentford supporter Josh Mann ahead of our league and cup matches

Lukasz Fabianski (WHU) picks up the ball at the EPL match West Ham United v Burnley, at the London Stadium, London, UK on 16th January, 2021. English Premier League matches are still being played behind closed doors because of the current COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, and government social distancing/lockdown restrictions.

Who’s a new Brentford player opposing teams should look out for?

Keane Lewis-Potter, who we signed from Hull in the summer. He has a lot to live up to given what we paid for him but in spells, he has looked very good. With time, I can see him developing into a very tidy player.

Is staying in the Premier League a success for you, or do you want to challenge for silverware and/or a place in Europe?

The priority will always be staying up, but if we can begin to establish ourselves I see no reason why we can’t push on for Conference League.

As for your manager, Thomas Frank, are you worried that another team is eyeing him up?

Whenever he has been asked, Frank has always said how he wants to manage at the top level, but he is happy at Brentford. However, I do think there will be a point soon where he feels he’s taken us as far as he can.

You’ve beaten both Manchester clubs so far this season. How does that feel?

Absolutely amazing! With the United game, I couldn’t quite believe what I was watching. I don’t think we got enough credit in the media for it as there was a lot of focus on how bad United were. As for City, it was probably our best ever performance. Especially considering how woeful we had been away from home up until that game. To win, especially with a 98th minute winner was one of the best feelings ever.
