Continuing the look back at the 2021/22 campaign

8 June 2022

The 2021/22 season is now at an end. Brentford's first-ever campaign the Premier League ended with The Bees in 13th place. There were some great moments to reflect on.

Over the next week, we will look back at the season. Join us and remember the home wins, great days on the road, late winners and the moments away from the match. Today we're looking at some of the best moments on the road.............

Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 Brentford 2

Brentford clinched their first away win as a Premier League side with a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Ivan Toney converted a penalty just before the half hour and then set up Bryan Mbeumo to score a second soon after. Brentford’s 2-0 half time lead looked like it could be threatened when Shandon Baptiste was sent off, but a superb defensive performance kept the hosts out and Brentford took the points.

It was a win that they fully deserved. Brentford had the ball in the net four times in the first half and hit the woodwork in the second even when down to ten men. They limited Wolves to one really good chance and David Raya, in the Brentford goal, did not have a save to make as The Bees got the win.

Newcastle United 3 Brentford 3

Brentford recovered from conceding an early goal to pick up a point in a memorable 3-3 draw away to Newcastle United. The Bees levelled within seconds of conceding the first of the afternoon’s six goals as Ivan Toney found the net. They went ahead twice thanks to Rico Henry and an own goal that Frank Onyeka that will try to claim, but Newcastle responded and earned a share of the spoils.

It was a rip-roaring match that was helter-skelter almost throughout. Brentford played on the front foot and had the lead going in to the final 15 minutes. But Newcastle were positive from the first whistle and created enough to feel they deserve a share of the spoils.

Norwich City 1 Brentford 3

Ivan Toney grabbed Brentford’s first Premier League hat-trick as The Bees picked up a vital victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road. The striker volleyed in from a corner to put The Bees ahead in the first half and then scored two penalties after the interval to seal the win. Norwich pulled one back, but The Bees took the points.

It was an enthralling match with no shortage of incident. As well as four goals, two of them penalties, there were two more disallowed and a series of yellow cards. It was competitive and combative, and Brentford came out on top, winning 3-1 with Toney scoring Brentford’s first top-flight treble since 1937 and taking his tally for the season to 11.

This was one of the main topics Ivan talked about in a long read which can be found here. Ivan grabbed 12 Premier League goals this season. See them all below.

Chelsea 1 Brentford 4

Before Brentford came to Stamford Bridge, only Manchester City had left victorious during the 2021/22 Premier League season, and they had conceded ten times at home in 13 matches. That record was laid to rest as Brentford scored four second half goals to record a memorable win. The Bees fell behind early in the second half but roared back to win 4-1 on a never-to-be-forgotten West London afternoon.

The final score probably does even tell the full story. Brentford were well worth a three-goal win and could arguably have scored even more, so fine was their attacking performance. Vitaly Janelt got two of the goals and Christian Eriksen scored as well. Yoane Wissa came off the substitute’s bench to add the fourth.

All the goals came in a thrilling second half, but the first was almost as entertaining. Brentford dominated the early stages without finding a way through and then had to defend well at the end of the half. The Bees fell behind to a long range strike from Antonio Rüdiger that may end up being forgotten but was the best of the afternoon. They levelled within seconds and never looked back, beating the team that held the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA World Club Cup at that point of the season

Everton 2 Brentford 3

Rico Henry scored the winner as Brentford came from behind to beat Everton in a rip-roaring Premier League encounter. The Bees fell behind early on before the hosts were reduced to ten men. A deflected Yoane Wissa shot levelled it up and the same man headed a second equaliser after the break. Henry headed home the winner moments later.

The final 3-2 score line only tells a part of the story. Everton ended the match with nine men and only had ten on the pitch when they scored their second goal, a penalty just before half time. But Brentford used the extra man to their advantage in the second period. Wissa headed home before Henry powered in at the far post to seal a memorable win.
