E(R)C Blog: Are Bees ready for March Madness?
Well, what a difference a few goals make.
It wasn't long ago that there were some fans calling for the head of Brentford boss Uwe Rosler, but a 5-2 thrashing of Wycombe Wanderers and Monday's more impresssive 4-0 hammering of Carlisle United will have changed their tune.
New arrival Saido Berahino looks to be a shrewd bit of business and the addition of Adam Forsahw from Everton seems an exciting addition - according to Toffees clubmate Jake Bidwell at least.
Harry Forrester is close to a comeback if you believe reports and, while we might not think it at the moment, by George are the Bees going to need him and his ilk.
In the US, college basketball teams play-off throughout next month in a bid to become the nation's champions in what has become known as March Madness.
It features a game every night of the month - live on television - as each team sets out to reach the competition's final and each player tries to land himself an NBA contract.
March is going to mean something similar for the Bees.
Rosler's men have eight games to squeeze in, in a schedule that will see them playing Saturday and Tuesday for the entire month.
It is a period that is going to prove pivotal to hopes of making the League One play-offs, as it will for many others in the top half of the table.
Monday's win and one at Scunthorpe tomorrow will mean they go into the month with a bit of momentum and if they can carry that through the 31 days then anything is possible.
If the Bees can win more than half their games and lose just once, then I would guess they would be in a great position come April Resources will be stretched. Players will have chances in the team they may not othwerwise have had.
Brentford - allbeit temporarily - are already light of Gary Alexander, Shaleum Logan, Richard Lee, Karleigh Osborne, Marcel Eger and Kevin O'Connor to mention but a few.
But some will be back sooner rather than later and then it will be all hands on deck.
*** Finally, the Bees faithful surpassed themselves on Monday night on the fickleness front.
Even with Brentford winning 4-0 there were still moans and groans on the terraces....now that is impressive.
