    Coronavirus: Brentford Directors Contacting Older Fans

    I don't know if it is mentioned elsewhere, but the club are certainly doing their best to keep in contact with the supporters. Since the start of the lockdown I have received a telephone call from Cliff Crown and one from Stewart Purvis as a club initiative to make sure the over '70's are okay...

    Is anyone else totally underwhelmed by the forth coming World Cup - or any World Cup? I am already fed up with the pages of World Cup articles in the media and it has not started yet! I usually book to be away for at least two weeks of a World Cup but this year made an error and will be at...

    3rd April 1953

    I have just realised that today is the 65th Anniversary of my first Brentford match. It was a 0 - 0 draw on Good Friday against Swansea Town. My Mum and Dad took me to GP and from that first game I was hooked. Anyone else remember this game? The team was : Newton, Horne Munro, Coote Bragg...

    Pitch Size

    Was I the only one to think the pitch size has been reduced? On New Road the 'new' sideline was about four feet further in towards the centre circle and the Manager's area was enlarged too. The old markings were plainly visible. Whilst not going towards the Ealing Road end of New Road it...

    Does any one know a good builder in Camberley? We want him to knock down a wall between the kitchen and dining room, plus a cupboard in the corner of the kitchen. it may need an RSJ but local houses claim to have done the same without the need for one. Early is better - the builder we were...

    Cardiff City (H)

    I see that Cardiff tickets are on general sale now. I was told last night that they have sold out their allocation so it must be a worry that they buy in home stands. Not being nasty, but we have suffered with Cardiff fans in the past and should be wary if the above is true.

    Brighton & HA (A) - NOW FRIDAY 5th Feb on Sky TV

    Bearing in mind the chaotic scenes getting away last season, is it possible to arrange a private supporters coach from Surrey which could park at the ground and leave immediately after the game? Must be worth looking in to!

    Derby County, away, Saturday April 11th

    Yes! It's an early kick off. Yes! It's on TV. Yes! It's a medium'ish journey. But: We all need to get up there and give massive vocal support to the team. This time last season we would have been grateful for 4th from bottom and 50 points at this stage but, hey! we are close to the play...

    21 Years Ago Today

    Newcastle United 5 Brentford 1 I remember it well! Joe Allon and Paul Stephenson (debut) played for the Bees against their former club. Before the game I was given a lift by a police van from the home end to the away end - the only time , so far, I have been in a police vehicle! A young kid...

    Isn't it funny how matters change! For the last few seasons we have struggled with only a couple or three forwards. This season we had a glut: Clayton Farid Will Paul Hayes Luke Norris and Trotta signed early on Suddenly we have no choice for Saturday as Farid (loan), Norris (loan), Hayes...

    Champagne moment v Oldham

    I can't see this thread so I hope it is okay to start one. I am minded to say the sunshine as I can't ever remember sun in Oldham even in August. However, I must go for the first goal - excellent cross ideal for Clayton to power into the net.

    I know I have complained before about the lack of information coming out of the club but we asre still kept in the dark over injuries. For example what about the following players Kevin O'Connor - had a setback but when is he likely to be back? Marcus Bean - carried off at Scunthorpe...
