Brentford have lit up the summer transfer window with signings like Ethan Pinnock, David Raya, Christian Nørgaard, Mathias Jensen and Pontus Jansson, who could have predicted this? Honestly if you did then we want the lottery numbers!
Pontus Jansson has lit the championship up since his arrival at Leeds United in 2017, with the passion for the fans and love of the game. Leeds captain, team of the year and possibly the best defender outside of the Premier League is now aiming for promotion with the Mighty Bees, why wouldn’t he?
Ethan Pinnock, Barnsley’s player of the year and in the League 1 team of the season, the perfect player to accompany Jansson and Jeanvier. Barnsley fans did not seem very happy at all that we signed Pinnock, especially for the measly sum of 3 million.
David Raya comes of the back of a season at Blackburn Rovers while his predecessor moves on to Bristol City. Raya has been described as a “fantastic shot stopper” but is still a young keeper so has a lot to learn still.
Finally our Danish Duo Mathias Jensen and Christian Nørgaard, both players come to Griffin Park off the back of fruitless spells in foreign territory, Spain and Italy respectively. Jensen a midfield maestro who knows where the goal is and Nørgaard the machine in the middle, an end-to-end midfielder. Given the Scandinavian presence at the club, we’re sure they’ll fit right in.
Given that this is our last season at Griffin Park, we may as well go out with a bang, and you never know reach the promise land.
