    Away kit at home

    I can't remember the source, but for Camberley it was due to competition rules stating "where the colours (shirts, shorts or stockings) of the two competing clubs are similar, both clubs must change, unless arrangements are mutually agreed by the competing clubs".

    Brentford FC - Wikipedia - The Stats

    A guy who I presume is a Coventry City supporter, Skyblueshaun, basically "moved in" on all FL clubs' season pages as far as I can tell.

    Brentford FC - Wikipedia - The Stats

    Not replying to this post specifically, but neither WP or I have anything to do with Brentford F.C. - Wikipedia., given the high traffic/spam it receives. There are some nutters out there who diligently update the kits for all league clubs. Aside from doing stats and cleanup, I don't have much...

    Oldest surviving player to have played for Brentford FC?

    The average lineup during the 1962-63 Fourth Division championship season was Cakebread, Coote, Anthony, Higginson, Gelson, Crowe, Block, Brooks, McAdams, Dick, McLeod. Only Anthony (76) and Gelson (78) are still alive!

    Worst signing of the last decade

    Not only did he never get named in a matchday squad, he didn't even receive a squad number from what I can tell.

    Worst signing of the last decade

    Only big lumps I can come up with are Leon Constantine, Efan Ekoku and Jide Olugbodi. Can't find any ex-Spurs.

    Currently plying his trade for Portuguese third-tier outfit Espinho.

    Worst signing of the last decade

    You're a little crossed up I'm afraid. He played with Bees on loan for the duration of the 2002-03 season. Scored in that 3-0 League Cup win for Luton over Bees early in the 2006-07 season. Returned to Bees on loan from QPR in November 2010.

    Worst signing of the last decade

    Don't know if he's been mentioned yet, but Rowan Vine. Signed on loan for about six weeks in November 2010 and didn't even receive a call into a first team squad.

    Bit random, but was Andy Dibble ever good value? Seem to remember some bantz being traded between him and the Brook Road during the KOC "that volley" match in 2004. Don't know if it was a regular thing?

    Dick Molyneux - question for the historians

    Good spot, don't know how I missed that! The 102 game total is I believe what A-Z Bees gave as his record, which would be the entire league record for 1903-1906 and they didn't take into account of cup matches and all the matches he missed due to illness and the subsequent caretaker spells. I'll...

    1950's (?) Youth Squad

    Would that make the pic between 1957 and 1963, if a Birmingham City book source is to be believed about Goodwin being back with the club in a coaching capacity in those years?

    Brentford FC - Hall of Fame

    Predominately, long service, whether as a player or staff member, plus involvement with a promotion-winning team, seems to be the main criteria. Interestingly, Jamie Bates and Billy Lane are the only two players on the the club's 10 highest appearances and goals lists respectively who have not...

    Cheers, the odd cock up happens when you try to invent new records. Turns out the lowest negative home goal difference we've had is -17 in 2006-07, our disastrous relegation season from League One.

    Opening day of the 1982-83 season, Mahoney, Joseph (2) and Roberts (2).

    Come back kids

    Thought of two, Rowan Vine and David Partridge - didn't even make the bench in their second spells! Not that Partridge was any good in his first spell though.
