Thomas Frank thinks Brentford has a ‘foundation’ to build on this season

Written by waploaded

Brentford had 46 points last season, one more than the other two promoted teams – Watford (23) and Norwich (22) – combined as they finished a respectable 13th in their first Premier League campaign. But in recent seasons, Huddersfield and Sheffield United have been relegated to the championship after impressive starting terms in the top flight. Leeds avoided a fall on the final day of the previous season and finished ninth on a return to the top flight. But speaking ahead of his side’s visit to Leicester – a club that stunned the sporting world by winning the Premier League big time in its second season – Frank said: “In general, I don’t believe too much in the second season. Syndrome.” It’s a narrative that’s made up. Our opponents won the Premier League in their second season on Sunday, so maybe that’s what we should go for. “Huddersfield’s underlying statistics show that they were very fortunate to remain in the league. [in their first season], so I’m not surprised that he struggled the following year. “We weren’t lucky enough to stay in the league last year so there’s a foundation on which we can build. That can change with injuries and lack of form, but hopefully the things we do every day will be there.” Make sure we’re always in a great place.” The Bees will travel to the King Power Stadium to face the Leicester side, who finished eighth last season, missing only one European spot.

But doubts remain over the futures of James Madison and Yuri Tielemans, while Kasper Schmeichel joins Nice. However, Frank believes that Brendan Rodgers’ side has the firepower to fight at the top of the division. He continued: “Only Casper Schmeichel has left the club. They still have Madison, Tyleman, Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes – they are the top four players in the Premier League, the top players, and we need to be aware of them.” the wanted.” They were Johnny Evans, Wesley Fofana and Vardy with serious injuries last season. If they have a fit and available team, they have a team that will rise to the top of the league. “We will do our best to win. We will fight, we will be aggressive and we will attack 100 percent on Sunday.” Ben Mee is in line to make his Brentford debut as he entered into a two-year deal after his contract with Burnley expired. Christopher Azer and Sergi Canos are both out with injuries, while Ethan Pinnock is out with a knee problem.
