    Well done BIAS!

    Further to my earlier comments, I have just read about BIAS's 'Out and About' initiative, aimed at maintaining and increasing support for Brentford FC. Hopefully, this will be a step in the right direction. It deserves to succeed, and let us give it our support. Well done BIAS !:)
