    Which, I would imagine, probably covers the gate receipts we will be likely to lose as a result of Covid. Its utterly bizarre to think that we have probably traded ourselves into a position where we are one of the financially strongest clubs in the Championship. I'm running out of superlatives...

    1986-89 for me. Many a Saturday afternoon trudging round the grounds of the North West watching the Bees.

    Fair enough. I forgot the Hullbee link. As you can tell, those kind of comments are sadly all too frequent and touch a nerve. Would do thumbs up smilie but can't on my phone.

    Exactly my point.

    Ok, I'll bite. Thats some sweeping generalisation. In order to make it so authoritatively I assume you have spent the last 20 or more years working in local government so that you can evidence the claim on the basis of close personal observation? Or perhaps not, because your level of...

    15,000 crowd too. Looks like Aberdeen are beginning to stir again, which must be good for Scottish football.

    The BBC report talks about his team being 'pre-historic, trapped in a dark age of hoofball'; http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/27569763

    That's true. Our views on this board, as died in the wool football supporters - and supporters of a small club a long way outside the privileged classes in the Premiership at that - probably don't reflect those of the casual football watching public. ( Sorry - I meant to quote Sonofabee's post...

    I think that's touching on an even bigger issue of the priorities of the English game. It's become so monetised and commercialised that it inevitably needs to reach out to seek much larger markets overseas than the UK could ever provide. That makes it a commercial success but personally I much...

    Exactly. Which is precisely why this year is so refreshing. And no, I haven't enjoyed or even taken much interest in many FA Cup Finals since the inception of the Premiership. I've got absolutely zero interest in football in the rarefied world of the top 4 or 5 Premiership clubs. It's stale...

    I would for one. The point about football for me isn't the ultimate technical quality on display but the competitive edge, the genuine uncertainty of outcome and, most of all the passion and sense of importance to the local community. The real problem with English football is its tedious...

    Really? I think it's great and really refreshing that the stranglehold of Chelsea, Man City et al has been broken. Far more interesting than yet another big final between the same old half motivated bunch of Champions League entrants for whom it means little or nothing. The quality of the semi...

    Marcus Gayle

    I also remember a horrendous 3-0 home defeat against a struggling Bury side in the middle of February when we seemed to be falling apart and the New Road (the boisterous side of the ground then) were singing 'get your chequebook out' to Martin Lange.

    Marcus Gayle

    He didn't realise it been disallowed until he was back in our own half celebrating. Weren't we 4-0 up inside the first 30 minutes that night?

    Chic Brodie says much the same, I believe...........

    Mark Phillips

    Really good to see him make a point of coming over to the Bees fans at the final whistle today. In fact he got closer than any of our own players.

    Ingimarsson released by Reading

    One of my all time favourite players and a cert to line up alongside Terry Evans in my Brentford dream team. Calm, composed, technically supreme, the personification of poise and control. But my favourite memory of him is that thunderous goal in the win at Reading that sent 3,000 Bees fans...

    Gordon Sweetzer.

    Yes, in about 1982. He scored within 4 minutes of his return, at Reading but we lost 4-1 and he never scored for us again. I think DHL were involved in the transfer of his registration papers and this led to the shirt sponsorship deal.
