Interesting to look back at Saturday’s Newcastle 3 Brentford 1 match.

Nothing beats being at the actual game but obviously TV highlights can fill in the gaps AND remind you of certain things you may have forgotten following a Saturday night out celebrating.

It had ‘slipped’ my mind how Brentford should have opened the scoring and only after watching the highlights below have I found out why the Perez ‘goal’ was disallowed in the first half.

Enjoy the goals and highlights below, with the added bonus of Brentford biased commentary, as the footage is via the Brentford official website (if you haven’t read them already go HERE for some excellent comments from Brentford fans after their weekend in Newcastle).
