    OwlsTalk thread posted on 23 October i.e. after our victory over them: My take on Brentford Broadly complimentary about Bees (if a little misguided about Warburton!). Thread dissolved more into a discussion about themselves, as usually happens, with most expressing optimism for their next 3...

    Good alright, but still not quite up there with Bob Mortimer's quip after the Boro game about "Brentford coming at you like bastards!" 🤣

    There's a lot more money around in West London than there is in West Yorkshire. I mean, try sellng flats next to their stadum for £400k+ a pop. o_O

    Tbf it would be a valid criticism of them had they said "Town should NEVER... ... lose to BFC" , but it's hardly outrageous to decry a defeatist attitude ("expect to lose") when going into a game against a team in the same division. As for the rest, sure it's condescending but again, when we...

    Took a look at a Swans forum just now. They pretty much accept that they were never at the races, but the ref was v.biased in our favour(!) and they really need to vent on Thomas, who they hate. One example of the latter is "LondonLisa2001" who wrote: "Hope that Fulham go in to get through, but...

    As Kipling might have counselled Leeds fans: "If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same..." There's some stuff in it for Bees fans, too, esp the first two lines: If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on...

    No offence, but I think you are being biased. Nearly every team has at least one top player who would have a valid claim, so for BFC to get four is mightily impressive (imo). As for the four they've chosen, agree completely with 3 of them, but still not convinced by Raya. Don't get me wrong...

    Take care, 8corner - he gets fractious about these things and before you know it, you could find yourself decimated. Then you'd only be 7.2corner. Or should that be 7 1/5?

    It's certainly more pronounced in the Prem, but I'm not sure it's unique. After all, supporting your team is essentially a tribal activity, with different people extending the boundaries of their tribal "homeland" more tightly, or loosely, than others. To take a random example, there are many...

    By the same token, loads of fans of lower league clubs only ever consider "the Premiershit" [sic] when pouring scorn upon it. And while it's true they know more about the Prem than Prem fans know about the lower leagues, that's inevitable considering that the Prem is in all our faces 24/7 via...

    Tbf, they're mostly complimentary on this Baggies site, but I guess every site has its weapon: "Brentford are decent outfit but they are a 1 man team. Take Benrahma out of that side and they would be top 10". https://wbaunofficial.org.uk/showthread.php?tid=11246&page=3

    He was just taking their orders: "Right, so that's 3 x Lucozade Sports, 3 x Red Bulls, 2 x Diet Cokes, a Fanta Orange, an Orangina Light and a pint of Tennents Extra for Pontus. Have I missed anyone out?"

    OK, I'll rephrase by saying that as many as 75% of EFL clubs will go bust before Brentford do. And while I could see quite few going belly-up as a result of this crisis, I can't see it being quite that bad.

    Pat Nevin made a point which is often overlooked in this player wage cut/deferral/furlough debate. If a club unilaterally cuts its players' wages, then they are in breech of contract, meaning the players could walk away on a free. And while players at wealthy clubs who pay big wages are in a...

    I know of one ground which used to have one stand which was the exact same (wooden seating/flooring etc). They only got permission to go on using it temporarily, while they submitted plans for its replacement, on condition that there was a fully manned fire engine stationed outside on...
