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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
