Marcello Trotta: Hoping to right the wrongs of last season

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."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
