    Just a quick reminder that if we had beaten Fulham in the play off second leg and gone on to win at Wembley, I’d be walking around with a Cameron Jerome tattoo on my arse right now.

    Brentford are levels above the rest of the league in the way they operate 99% of the time.
    They just seem to be missing that little something to get them over the line. Could be the intangible characteristics that the stats don't show, could be the head coach, could be anything. I'd quite like to see them go up because I really believe in their model.

    Yes, coronavirus is essentially a strain of flu, so they’ve just tweaked the process for the flu jab. 
    the Pfizer one is pretty much a brand new way of doing it. But it was an idea they’ve been playing around with for a while, so they didn’t just start from scratch last January. 
    AZ uses an adenovirus, which is a virus which is harmless to humans (it actually more commonly infects monkeys, hence conspiracy theorists saying it’ll turn you into a monkey!). They essentially disguise it as coronavirus, so it has the same proteins on the outside and teaches the immune system to deal with the real thing when it turns up. That is a method that is commonly used for the flu and other diseases. 
    Pfizer is an RNA vaccine. It’s super clever. It doesn’t have any active content, not even an inert or dead virus. It just has a string of RNA. This is essentially instructions for the immune system to create the right antibodies. People are concerned that this is somehow manipulating their DNA, but it’s no more so that’s any other vaccine. At the end of the process, your immune system’s DNA has changed to include the ‘knowledge / line of code’ that tells it how to create antibodies for the coronavirus. The AZ vaccine does this by introducing the immune system to a disguised virus, which enables the immune system to write its own RNA which effects the DNA coding. The Pfizer one cuts out this middle man and just gives the immune system the RNA (ie the instructions) directly. 
    If I remember correctly, they’ve both been tested on about 40,000+ people across 3 or 4 countries with zero negative effects (besides the normal side effects) before they were approved. 
    What bugs me is that it’s normally young healthy people that talk to me about it not being tested enough. But by the time it gets to them, it will have been used on millions and millions of people. So if the 40,000+ isn’t enough for them as a testing cohort, surely the millions and millions of older, medically vulnerable, and health care workers that will have taken it before them should provide a decent enough sample size to alleviate any concerns. 
    and frankly, if we do all drop dead from it in 5 years because of some weird, unknowable long term side effect, I’m not sure I want to be left in a world with no health care workers and just a few conspiracy theorists left to say ‘I told you so.’
    having said all that, this new monkey tail I’ve got is proving to be really handy, and anyone without one is missing out.

    He's our youngest ever player and our youngest ever goalscorer. Yes it didn't work out, but I'm interested in hearing how he does at the same level we're playing at. That sort of thing is surely what this section is for?
    For those interested here's his goal, plus a decent headed attempt and a chance not taken to equalize again near the end:

    It's interesting. 
    I'm pretty sure the plan was always for Frank to take over from Smith eventually, so they must have liked him for a long while. But yeah, their squad isn't a 'plucky' one anymore. It's full of quality players, so perhaps it does come down to Frank.

    For a neutral, Brentford is definitely a team to watch, along with Norwich. 
    IMO the biggest reason they have not yet promoted is the manager. Obviously it's not the only factor but I think it's the biggest one. Having excellent manager is definitely the reason why Barnsley are up there.
