Jumping on the scousers in front of me when the 3rd went in....they took it well, but ultimately they couldn't hide the fact they were found out!
Excellent. Complete their day by taking a note of the seat numbers and pass on to the club.

The first goal for me. So well worked and straight off the training ground; must be really rewarding for the team and coaching staff to see these things pay off in a match.

Unfortunately nearly the whole row in front of me were either Liverpool fans or instagram influencers as they spent the whole match filming the Liverpool players and sat very still when we were all celebrating our goals. Slightly irked me as I know a few people who couldn’t get tickets.

Great couple of Bees sat next to me so had some good chat and celebrations with them throughout the game.

min all honesty if we carry on like this we’ll finish top half, if it wasn’t for VVD we would have won today. The players are growing in confidence and you can see it in their play which is far less frantic than the first couple of games.

we belong at this level and I think we are only just getting started!

Thought that there were remarkably few infiltrators this evening.

Email the club with the row and rough seat numbers and they can suspend the accounts of those that purchased. If us fans keep doing that it will go a long way to keep these areas all Brentford.

I’m at the top of the East Stand right behind the goal and have had different people around me during every game so I must be in an area with a lower number of ST holders. First time today though that I haven’t been surrounded by loud and proud Bees and the blokes next to me were great.

They didn’t cause any issues apart from their iPhone antics getting on my nerves.

I was with my daughter celebrating her birthday in quite a posh Leeds restaurant. I didn't dare check my phone for the score until near the end and saw that we were losing 3-2. I didn't realise she was also checking hers which was a little ahead of mine. The look on her face as we equalised triggered an ecstatic whoop of joy and pumping of fists into the air which silenced the entire restaurant. Felt especially good as Leeds had just lost in the last minute at Elland rd. Fantastic performance, fantastic result and fantastic support. Well done to all of you that were there and so so sad I couldn't make it.

They were awful. Not a peep out of them until they were winning, and then they shut up pretty quickly... There was a chap near me was clearly a Liverpool fan. Looked very unhappy at the end.. :)

They were singing pretty loud all game. It is just that we were singing louder so anywhere else other than the East Stand you can't hear them.

Before I met Mrs Untouchable
Before I had children
Before I moved well away from West London…

There was 3 of us who would watch BFC come rain, shine or very sh*t football. Going to BFC together was always the highlight of the week.

Recent times haven‘t been easy. One of our 3 has been fighting cancer. The other has been living abroad.

Today was the first Bees match in almost 4 years that we’ve been able to attend together.

Every single ****ing minute was my champagne moment.

Far too many, but on reflection here’s a few of mine:

- Every minute was brilliant. Best Brentford game I’ve ever been to.
- The atmosphere was insane - seeing all four sides singing at the same time was beautiful. BBC online said it sounded like we had 30,000 inside.
- The way the free kick was worked for Pinnock’s goal was outrageous.
- Wissa coming on and chipping Allison - lol 😂
- Vitaly’s goal, knowing that Hansi ‘Herr’ Flick was watching. We might soon have a Mannschaft player!
- Running down the steps in the West Stand to the front like a loon and whipping off my shirt twice to wave it around my head - never, ever done that before, way too old to be behaving like that, and will act like an adult (mostly) in the future 🤓
- Rico’s tracking back to tackle Salah - incredible.
- David Raya - blimey
- Ivan Toney literally owning Matip and Van Dijk in every aerial challenge. Surreal.
- The rave after the final whistle - freed from desire, old skool!

Had a bit of a cry on the train home, thinking that my brother should have been there and how much we’d have celebrated - possible pitch invasion to be honest on the final whistle, just to get on the telly :) Just very emotional and unbelievably proud to support Brentford F.C.

BTW somebody apparently reported my brother‘s flag to the club after the Oldham game, lying and saying it obstructed their view. ****. It ain’t going anywhere pal.

He would have loved it mate. You’re keeping that torch burning bright for him. ❤️

Going toe to toe with the Super League.

Thomas' last sub. Wissa for Norgaard ..great attacking move
That’s the second game in a row where TF has done a very aggressive attacking substitution when most would have opted to tighten. A line of Colombia’s finest to go with the champagne!

I thought Arsenal was my best Brentford night…

not any more 🙂

west stand was rocking !!!

The whole team were first class but , Ajer, Toney, Bryan absolutely fantastic.

And cameo’s from young Baptiste ( he’s going a long way in this game).

And Mr Wissa , I loved that celebration!!

Brilliant night I have tinnitus and no voice but bloody worth it !!!!

What I thought was also champagne and hilarious was 8 minutes after the game end it was like a disco! Sir Peter of DJ gilham was rocking a tune not sure what but all sides were proper dancing to it !! Wonderful!!
Bryan’s on fire, your defence is terrified.

So many great moments from yesterday, actually felt really emotional after the second and third equalisers.

My missus asked me to write down the words for all the different chants so that she can join in more (she is properly embracing the West Stand 😁).

Also watching Wissa and thinking blimey we've done it again and found another gem.

Finally the West Stand bouncing to 'freed from desire' at the end was superb. That needs to stay.

No. It's typical Matthew Benham's Brentford

Might as will lose 2-5 as 2-3

So go more attacking to get goals.
Thats exactly what I said to my missus during the game. Gives Christian a break, and allows us to potentially get a result - and if we lose 3-2 or 5-2, no harm done.

The Liverpool team bus running out of diesel just past Watford Gap. Absolutely true. I read about it on Facey. :hat:
Cool story, bro - but I doubt it, sadly. They flew down Friday, flew back last night.
