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.
Of course it could all have been done "legally and above board"......
Liverpool fans purchase Membership......alllowed/encouraged (??) by club......purchase tickets listed by ST holders on Ticket Exchange in "fastest finger, no TAPs required" window......
And then of course they've got TAPs now, so will be able to do the same next season, even if the club put a restriction in place.

Guarantee it will be even worse for Chelsea. And I haven't been able to get a ticket on my son's Membership for this one, even though he has 800+ TAPs.

Not great. 😐

Sorry to bring this thread down btw......

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.
And the South Stand was bouncing to that too. Na na na na na naa na na naaa na na naaa!

But the person who bought the ticket will then not have access to get more tickets in future. That was my point. They will be able to check the purchase patterns for the account(s) also.

The whole thing. All of it.

setting the tone early with everyone contributing to the noise. the proud euphoria. We DESERVE this right now as we’ve as a club been through the thin to appreciate nights like these.

watching our team dealing with one of the great teams as equals and knowing that we’re really going to be alright in the PREMIER LEAGUE and WE BELONG at this level

Oh and jumping around to Bryan’s on Fire 🔥 at the end.

Can’t really add to what’s already been said. Just the most fantastic evening.
Amongst at least a dozen contenders for CM, if pushed I would say the saves from Ajer and Raya, oh and Rico’s chase down of Salah just before half time, oh and that half a second when we all thought Ivan had scored a fourth...

Like others, there is a whole raft of champagne moments, too many - almost - to mention. But there is one big one for me, the exorcising of a 30-year old ghost.

Cast your mind back over 30 years to March 1989, the 6th round cup tie at Anfield. We tried, oh we tried. If Cadette had scored when well placed? But it wasn't to be. On MoTD Steve Perryman gave the standard interview - Brentford played well, Liverpool a class above, etc etc.
Cue Dalglish to come out with the normal "Well played Brentford, credit to their fans, wish them well in the league.....

But did he? Did he my ar*e. He just sort of snorted, sneered, and said, Well surely they didn't expect to beat us did they?

Well, sunny jim, take today's result and shove it where the sun don't shine. And further, your current manager has more class in his little finger than you in your whole body.

I feel better now!

Was thinking the same about how both Zanka and Wissa have instantly clicked into place, major kudos to the DoF's yet again

Most touts will also buy tickets outside, so it could include sweeping up tickets over-bought (or no-shows) by random fans.

Has to be Ajer clearing off the line early doors. If that had gone in would have been very different game

Can't help thinking how completely knackered the players looked as they completed the lap of honour (led by TF). Ayer was still puffing, Brian could scarcely walk. They had all given 110%+ for the team - but they still found the energy to acknowledge us fans. Shows how much they have all bought into the "family Brentford" idea.
So much classier than the "world class" Liverpool players who mostly just walked off the pitch straight away and ignored their fans.

Just to clarify, is this against Kenny Dalglish?

So many Champagne moments as mentioned above, and as said in so much of the media -"One of the very best Premier League games"!!!

However, a really personal moment for me was thinking this at the end -

The last time we played Liverpool at home in the top Division was May 17th 1947, a 1-1 draw, 3 weeks after I was born.

So I was probably asleep at home only some 800 yards from GP.

Since then, both clubs have travelled different paths - us to the likes of Barrow, Workington, Torquay, Accrington, Bury, Tranmere, and so on, and Liverpool to the best clubs in Europe and throughout the world.

Last night, as I thought of all those intervening matches and decades of supporting Brentford, the ups and downs (plenty of those!), we returned to where my life started, playing at the highest level, and now playing the top club in the country on an equal footing.

No underdog for us - matching them for 90+ minutes not just to keep in the game, but with a win almost within our grasp.

An amazing night! An amazing match! An amazing crowd of long term and new supporters! An amazing personal experience to think that Brentford are back in the big time, still only some 800 yards away from where I lay sleeping, when we last played Liverpool in the top flight!

Seeing Ivan beat their 'world class' central defenders in the air over and over again and, when I have calmed down, trying to come to terms with the fact that one of them cost Liverpool as much as we spent on our beautiful new stadium and probably more than we have spent in total on all the players that we have ever bought in the history of our club - doesn't make sense does it?

Spoke to guy on train home who said 1 tout had over 80 tickets @ £200.00 each, - he shifted over 50 of them, where's he got that quantity from ???

To be fair, the team bus may not have contained the team...
Thanks.

Has been posted earlier that it probably dropped them at Luton, and then went on empty to meet them at Liverpool.

Which makes sense.

Personal champagne moment, chatting to a total stranger on the way out about the game and asking if they were on the Grapevine. What followed was a personal escort to The Globe and an introduction to several other members.

Credit to @Bengeo Bee for his welcoming hospitality and talking me down from my imposter syndrome!

Ah, OK. Thought you were calling out the person who listed the ticket.
But also, do you really think with the limitations of our system we would have the wherewithal to do things like checking purchase patterns......
(Also, won't stop them getting a ticket for the same game next season......when does a pattern, become a pattern.....??)

Yeah, and we did pretty well in the East too, didn't we!?😁
I'm in West Stand upper and I raised my voice in the closing stages after seeing the seeing the East stand was absolutely rocking from where I was. Not bad for the section "full of members and quieter fans" eh.

My champagne moment - which I will shortly try and watch back to check I didn't dream it - Pontus calmly clearing the ball over his own shoulder with the outside of his foot, during the first half. Who says he can't handle big games?

Not great. 😐

Sorry to bring this thread down btw......

In which case it could get a bit tasty in the East Stand, especially if the game is as close as last night's and any Chelsea fans are stupid enough to celebrate a goal.

Yeah, it was pretty good up there tbh. It is never going to be the same as the West Stand but there are more than enough of us to get things going when required and when a chant from the West spreads round the ground.

The 'who are yas' are also great when you can actually direct them straight in the faces of the away fans!!! :giggle: :sorted:

Yep plenty of us in the East Stand making noise. The big difference from GP that I hope will play to our advantage is that we have fans behind the goal at both ends and in all 4 parts of the ground. I’m loving the BCS experience. Really does feel at home already.

First minute, and Wolves have had more shots on target than they did all game against us.

Cool story, bro - but I doubt it, sadly. They flew down Friday, flew back last night.

Ah yes. That Facebook story has now been corrected now. It was their plane that ran out of fuel. They had to ditch their burger and chips over Slough but the reduced weight wasn't enough. They had to emergency land and are currently stranded in Leighton Buzzard awaiting lorry driver recruitment. :( The supper dumping tactic worked well during the last fuel crisis. But Jan Molby and Neil Ruddock were in the squad back then.

Wasn't it the exact flick that he tried against Swansea in the playoff semi at GP, but totally fluffed and led to their consolation? Glad it came off but heart was in mouth a bit!!

On top of those already mentioned, it was a nice sky 😉

Looks so different to last season. I think for the last home game of the season party, everybody should turn up in a random selection of red, white, black, yellow and purple jumpers, stay absolutely silent, and trick the TV cameras in to thinking nobody's turned up.

The ultimate Champagne moment is this.

The connection between the club, the players and it’s fans.

Final whistle I watch a few Liverpool players just walked down the tunnel with no fan acknowledgement whatsoever, and to see our boys as per usual walk round and applaud us all and to see us return the appreciation always wonderful moments.

We know the world of football has changed and the days of having a lifer “ Mr Brentford “ type player doesn’t exist anymore. But however long they are with us if it’s one season or 3 seasons , you can tell they know what Brentford is all about. It’s love and passion for this small part of London and the people that support it.

Im sure we have many new faces in the ground experiencing Brentford for the first time, and from what I have seen they have fallen in love with us.

We are so unique as a club, these are great days!!👍

Oh and another champagne moment Bertie big b***ocks Sallah trying the patronising chip over Raya and missing…

Cost you big time that one me old mate!
