    Final Score Reading 1 - 3 Brentford (JDS(2), Toney)

    Just the result that was needed after a traumatic few days. Sadly lost my Dad on Sunday evening, he having supported the Bees since 1942. Aware of what was going on until the end though, he knew we had beaten Boro 4-1 on Saturday and had a good chance of going top tonight and hopefully, back...

    What does it mean to you and supporting Brentford Football Club?

    So true. I have thought this way too for about 45 years.

    FT: Bees 2-2 Blackburn

    We were 2-2 on 71 mins! Ollie's worldie changed the momentum 10 mins earlier and lifted the crowd. Not at our best, tricky conditions, harsh penalty conceded but I disagree we were poor for 70 mins.

    Barnsley (H) - Ticket Arrangements TBA

    Was trying to find out when tickets were going on sale for members in my F & F group. The match wasn't listed on the 'Match Selection' page so I clicked the blue 'How to Buy Tickets' link then 'Home Games' and there it was. Does anybody know how many members there are?

    Songs that reference Griffin Park

    Dr John appears twice on the compilation album Demons in Brentford (1984), the cover of which features an old map of the area. Perhaps he visited GP during recordings?

    Biggest Comebacks

    A-Z of Bees (A Brentford Encyclopedia) published late 1997 only mentions 2 comebacks from 1-4 down - Luton away on 1/2/33, final score 5-5 (Jack Holliday scored all 5 for us) and Doncaster away on 16/10/82, final score 4-4 after Francis Joseph had been sent off (scenes, I recall). M K Dons 0-3...

    Champagne moment V Blackburn

    Darlington at home 1986ish (from memory). 0-2 down early on then won 5-3. Doesn't quite match up to today though.

    EFL Cup Round 3 Draw (Arsenal (A))

    Not many did as 1-4 down from the 1st leg and times of generally low crowds. I think we had a football special from Ealing Broadway so must have been a few hundred Bees.

    EFL Cup Round 3 Draw (Arsenal (A))

    83-84 was home (1-4) and away (0-4). ISTR the 2nd leg was played in front of Anfield's lowest post war crowd, just over 9k, with the barriers on the Kop clearly visible, all apart from the very middle.
