Brentford Commit The Worst Piece Of Defending You'll Ever See - It's Genuinely Mind-Blowing

Brentford produced a moment of madness to concede an early goal against Bournemouth in their Championship play-off clash.

Bournemouth struck first from a Brentford corner following a swift counter-attack that left the hosts' defending much to be desired.

After thwarting their set-piece, the away side cleared the ball away which turned into a through ball for Arnaut Danjuma who ran through on goal, unchallenged with NO Brentford players back defending.

Danjuma raced down the pitch before slotting the ball into the back of the net to give his side the lead in a mind-blowing sequence.


Brentford's shocking defending sent social media wild - with some fans comparing their defending to Manchester United's against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League.

One joked: "Why is there not a man back in the 4th minute."

A second tweeted: "5 mins into the game and Brentford's last man trying to stop the counter is stood on the edge of Bournemouth's box."

A third added: "Why are Brentford attacking that corner like it's the 96th minute?!?"

Thomas Frank's team, however, changed the course of the game through an Ivan Toney penalty which cancelled out Danjuma's goal.

Bournemouth's Chris Mepham then received his marching orders after fouling Bryan Mbeumo.

Brentford went onto win the second leg 3-1 to secure a spot in the Championship play-off final.

Second-half goals from Vitaly Janelt and Marcus Forss saw them beat Bournemouth 3-1 (3-2 on aggregate) on Saturday.
