Marcello Trotta: Hoping to right the wrongs of last season

Certain sections of the Bees support have expressed their displeasure at the Fulham youngster returning to Griffin Park.

Trotta cost Brentford automatic promotion on the final day of the 2012/13 campaign, as he crashed a stoppage-time penalty against the crossbar and could only watch in horror as Doncaster Rovers broke down the other end of the field to snatch a winner of their own - and the League One title.

Rosler is, however, eager to point out that the 20-year-old did a lot of good work for the club last season and should not be judged on one unfortunate incident.

He said: "It's important everyone gives Marcello a chance.

"He knows some people have not forgotten. Of course, people still remember him for that penalty.

"I remember the impact he made for the club. We should judge him on that.

"Marcello has come to fight for his place and play.

"I feel he is a good solution for us. He bounced back from that Doncaster game and I expect him to help us achieve our goal this season."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
