Laca bags a hat-trick as Arsenal beat the Bees’ Bs

For the second time this season, Arsenal have hit four goals past a Brentford side at London Colney.

Two weeks after losing to the Bees in the opening game of the season, the Gunners invited the west London side to the training ground and exacted revenge with a 4-0 spanking that included two goals by Cedric.

This time around, a mix-and-match Arsenal XI beat Brentford’s B team 4-1.

Alex Lacazette bagged a hat-trick (a classic from the ‘If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound’ genre) and Rob Holding also got on the scoresheet.

It’s relatively easy to get Brentford to agree to friendly matches. They ditched their academy in 2016 and spend most of the time waiting by the phone in case anybody fancies challenging their reserves.

We also faced them in June 2020, losing 3-2 on that occasion.

Starting XI: Leno, Swanson, Holding, Ogungbo, Tavares, Azeez, Patino, Sagoe Jr, Ibrahim, Lacazette, Nketiah

Subs: Sousa, Dinzeyi, Okonkwo, Bandeira, Butler-Oyedeji, Biereth, Ideho

Last night I had my Butler bring me a Swanson dinner of Ideho potatoes Sousa’d with a Bandeira salsa. It left me Holding my Biereth in anticipation. Azeezily the best meal I’ve ever had, even if it did Laca certain je ne sais kwo.

I’ll grab my coat and Sagoe!

Is that more than his EPL goals already?

La Défense

If the game ended 4-1, and Cedric scored two goals, then how did Laca manage a hat trick?

Nice one

Onenil

Will Nketiah ever score again?

TeeCee

I’m sure that, wherever he ends up, he’ll score 40 goals in his first season for them and we’ll all blame Arteta.

DB's first touch

No signs of Tomiyasu then? Seems unlikely that he will feature against Palace or even make the match day squad.

viegunner

if you were wondering, upon looking up, they did really ditch their academy in 2016. with the amount of joking on here i really couldn’t tell for sure

adorno

No Tomi? 🙁

Badaab

Can’t believe we have Duncan ideho in the youth side! Hope it’s the original and not one of the gholas constantly plagued by genetic memories!

Earlier match if you read it properly. In this game the 4th goal was scored by Holding.
