    Disgusting incident in Braemar Rd Paddock

    Witnessed some poor fella getting sh#t on twice day once each half from the same pigeon in the roof girders. A massive dropping each time. Hopefully a thing of the past when we move to Lionel Rd.

    We've been at GP for 112 years. I'm thinking Ealing Road was mixed for say 75 of those, a dedicated home end for 18 years and an away end for 19 years ?

    Land & Property Club used to own

    Apart from the Brook & Ealing Rd flats land, I have a vague recollection that we used to own the land on the corner of Cliffden Rd/Brook Rd where new style houses are now opposite Royal Oak. Can't remember what this was. Also I think we owned a few properties around the Grd in New Rd & Braemar...

    Most packed Royal Oak

    For me this would have to be Swansea or Liverpool early 80's both rammed solid before match & in full voice. Not sure what it held in those days & can remember a section always being closed off I think top right hand corner., presumably for structural issues.

    Development Squad Players buisness plan

    With the amount of young players we seem to sign up I guess only a few will actually make it all the way through. Just wondering how lucrative it is to develop them, loan out and sell on with future sales in the deal. Does every player we have possess the potential to play top half of...

    Largest away turn out at Griffin Park

    I remember a match late 80's when Swindon were given the New Road (all standing then), was this the largest away following At GP. Other matches that spring to mind are Watford late 70s, Millwall, Fulham & Pompey early 80's. We could accommodate more than 2k away in those days.

    Biggest Bees away turn out in league

    It looks like Brighton will be biggest away crowd this season. In my time I can remember big away crowds at Peterborough & Fulham in promotion season, Reading in the Coppell era and MK Donkeys last year. Just wondered what's the most we've ever taken for a league match excluding play offs?

    Most suicidal player transfer

    Noticed a feature on John O''Mara in programme, before my time, but could'nt understand the logic in selling him when we just got promoted. In my time I think it's between Deano & DJ, although Sinton comes to mind. Glad to say those days are over for now & the foreseeable future!

    Have Fullers Brewery ever sponsored us ?

    The pubs around Brentford are doing their best ever match day trade & I can't recall any recent Fullers sponsorship or advertising apart from the London Pride sign I think in Ealing Rd back in the 70's.
