    0-2 down to 3-2 up?

    That must be a Brentford record? Not seen us pull that score back with so little time remaining ?

    Fastest goals conceded

    Today’s goal versus Barnsley was timed at 59 seconds but I seem to recall over the last five years we’ve shipped a few under a minute. So what’s the quickest goal Brentford have conceded?

    1972/1973 away kit

    Just come across a photo of the corking away kit we wore in September 1972 v Notts County at Meadow Lane. Anyone know what colours were on that band and whether we wore that often? For you history buffs, that's Peter Gelson clearing one off the line.

    Brentford (or other team) players that went to your school

    Okay, I’ll kick this off: Mark Fleming (Heston School). Former junior Chris Brady was a year older than me. Just to prove how good you have to be to make it as a professional, he was absolutely untouchable at school but struggled in our youth team. Any former Bees at your alma mater?

    2014 promotion medal stolen: reward for return

    Sadly, my house in Ilford was burgled last Monday. You may have seen some social media last week about a player's medal being swiped but that was in fact mine. We did that to attract more publicity but nothing as yet has come to light. When we got promoted in 2014, the club kindly asked the...

    Swansea(A) FA Cup R5 17th Feb 4pm

    It’s a pain in the arse to get to but we can make history if we beat Swansea and make the quarter-finals for the first time in 30 years. The boys need your support so forget the tv coverage and get down there. No doubt there will be free coaches and let’s see if we can get car shares listed on...

    Birmingham (A) Reports and Reactions

    Points to consider: TF is right. We would have lost that game last month so it’s a step in the right direction. The referee was a total homer. Some disgraceful home tackles went unpunished. They set out to let us have the ball and wait to pounce on our mistakes. What terrible tactics for a...

    Arsenal (A) League Cup - Wednesday 26th September

    Felt good typing that title. :love: As a former Highbury resident and someone that works close to the stadium, here's a few pointers: All the pubs near the old Highbury Stadium on the Blackstock Road (Bank of Friendship, Gunners pub etc etc) are home fans only, as is the Tollington Arms on the...

    Grayson Perry, Roch Maher, and the Bees

    I was unsure where to put this but I’ve just watched a deeply moving programme on channel 4 entitled Grayson Perry: Rites of Passage. It in part featured Brentford fan Roch Maher and his acceptance that Motor Nerone Disease will shortly end his life. Grayson was filmed attending a Brentford...

    Southend United match reports and reaction

    Not a bad win in the end but we were made to work for it. Some really good finishes tonight out of the four we took. I went in the main stand as the view is so crap from the away end, and even the Southend fans around me applauded Said’s, and our third, goal. Our defending for their first left...

    The price of admission: a history

    We're coming to the end of our tenure at Griffin Park and I'd thought it would be useful to track how much it cost to get in to the old place over the years. I've made a start via Google sheets but can anyone fill in the - substantial - gaps. The prices refer to the admission on matchday, not...

    Stoke City match reports and reaction

    I’ll leave the more technical reports to the others but two points dropped is how far we’ve come. We were by far the better team on the day, no question about it. Their goal is the sort of mistake that will be the making of Mepham, I dare say his boss did the same back in the day. He let it...

    Watch a bit of football history

    I’m not sure who the YouTube account called “theheavyroller” is, but if it’s someone on the GPG - thank you! Over the past 24 hours there’s been a handful of incredible clips uploaded, not least this one below from January 1955, Billy Dare signing from Brentford to West Ham live on TV!

    It was 20 years ago today...

    That Ron Noades bought Brentford FC from David W£BB for £650,000. At least we found out what his version of “funding the club” was. Your thoughts and memories, ladies and gents.
