Presumably the drainage at GP is adequate enough to deal with today's endless rain?

In a way, if we lose tomorrow night, might just be the lifeline their manager needs, to keep his job. No lose situation really.

We should have given them New Road...

Are you seriously taking the piss?

I reckon we should give them Ealing Road, take the roof off and mak sure it pisses down ....... with snow.

Just read that last time we played them in this comp (first round), which incidentally was the last time we were in the second tier, the attendance was 4,800.

Should we win, a pitch invasion is almost unavoidable imo

A pitch invasion would be a bit embarrassing IMO... We'd only have won a Capital One Cup tie to a team in the same division.

Let our play and chants do the talking.

Moses out, back injury, shame I thought we might have seen him as a wing back.

Any idea how many tickets sold?

Mark Devlin said crowd likely to be only 7-8k

Mark Devlin's forecasts are normally a bit over optimistic so I reckon 6,700 which isn't too bad.

Remember, as it's a cup game, that's bodies in the ground. Think the Southend FA cup replay...should be a good atmosphere.

I know some people in the past have called Griffin Park a bit of a graveyard.........but "bodies in the ground"?

Some Chiswick residents were trying to tell us that Lionel Road was a plague pit. Maybe they got their location wrong!

It would be tinpot, let's save a lap of honour for the cottage when we have earned a hat trick of wins against them.

Lack of any Fulham in Sharm El Sheik, I think they've gone into hiding too, just like gashbee. :(

Come out from your hiding place "gash", we have a game on tonight! lol

Due to having a heavy cold I can't make the game tonight. If anyone want to borrow my season card with a free£15 ticket for Ealing Road terrace then send me a PM. You will need to pick up my card from Windlesham.

Any chance of this being rained off? Been raining solidly for over 24 hours here - wonder whether the pitch will hold up this afternoon.

Get a grip man. Pop a lemsip in a pint of pride and you will be fine.

Bloody hell mate you will be rattling around in that section with about 7 other people. I expect the few in 'hate corner' to still do their duty though! lol

.....come on over mate and make it 8.........though have a feeling it may be a tad more animated tonight;)

Ealing Road now showing as limited along with a couple of paddock blocks so hopefully a reasonable turn-out of Brentford Ultras lol

I heard the government were looking at the front row of the Paddock as part of research into new flood defences along the Thames lol

Also looking for volunteers to test the new ebola anti virus, Benham suggested the away end tonight as a captive audience!
