They have the worst home defensive record in the four English divisions.
 
John Terry doing a grand job as defence coach!
 
Big smile
Double Maxim without doubt the greatest drink in the world

Brentford managers only seem to do well at Brentford...once they leave for better things it doesn't pan out too well

If you're referring to Smith, it shouldn't be overlooked that he had also done a very good job previously at Walsall (currently struggling to avoid the drop to Lge Two after 5 successive defeats).

Of course it's very true that Brentford offers a very good environment for its managers to thrive, but if you think about it, it's unlikely that a club would be so good at building a good structure (Board, Directors of Football, senior management, recruitment etc), without also consistently* identifying good Head Coaches.

Rosler/Wigan, Warburton/Forest and Smith/Villa all went to "bigger" clubs, which should have offered greater potential for an ambitious young manager. But if they didn't/don't do as well as at Brentford, that says much more about their new clubs, including their "sack the manager" culture, than it does about them (imo).


* - The one obvious failed appointment was Marinus Dijkhuizen, and even then the club immediately cut its losses after just nine games, when it became clear they'd erred:
Brentford co-director of football Rasmus Ankersen later revealed that the club "made a mistake" in hiring Dijkhuizen and that the decision to part company "was based on three months of training and there were some fundamental processes, in terms of getting a full football operation to work to its maximum, that weren't at the level we wanted them to be"
