As to the match itself, Youann's thwarting of Ince's more than likely goal. Also from our supporters 'We don't need a drum, we're Brentford FC, we don't need a drum' was amusing, as was the fire drill to our right both before half time and full time, and '...is this a library?'. Noticeable that 3 sides of the home support were very quiet for the whole game. Were there 'only' 624 of us there? If so, the sound from us throughout the game was impressive. The songsters were on good form as well.

A couple of nice touches by DCFC. The steward on the concourse who went out of his way to get me a programme, as I'd missed the seller outside; and the option of going 'outside' at half time for more refreshment options, and, for those who needed it, the ability to have a fag outside.

Going by the free coach, and getting in to my front door after a 35 minute drive home, at 01.40 - normally takes at least an hour! The only slight downside of this was passing the A414 junction on the M1 on the way home at about 00.05. Could have got home in 15 minutes if I'd been in the car. A very enjoyable afternoon/evening out. Turned into an entertaining 0-0, rather than a borefest.

Barbet's tackle where we were in trouble after giving it away, he launched into one of his long, stretch and flying tackled but also deliberately tackled him with a back heel so as to pass to Woods, class stuff and made me grin.

Not the right thread for this, but Barbet should probably continue at LB for Barnsley. Harlee might have to make do on the bench, as the defence overall was strong yesterday.

I thought the continual "Where you going" was funnier when the mass exodus happened than "Is this a library" and could be more effective if continued like the "handball" chants

My worst moment was dropping a £20 note by some cars coming away from the game, plus I did the free coaches and we got 2 lost trying to find these big white things which were 50 yards away from the away exit and quite big and white vehicles, a 15 min delay to getting home.

The we don't need a drum chant did make me chuckle.

Flat beer moment was the bloke sat next to me who constantly shouted "go on Clarkey" every time Kaikai got the ball and then topped it off with "oh you've got to hit the target Clarkey" when Sawyers put his chance over/wide!

It's actually quite scary that people travel away from home to watch their team and don't know which player is which. The fella next to me thought Barbet was Bjelland and called Lewis McLeod 'Sam' right at the end of the game.

Walking away from the ground after the match a rather lard a***d Derby supporter commented, "What's the world coming to, Leicester through to the knock out stages of the champions league and we draw 0-0 at home with f*****g Brentford". Tee hee.!

He was wrong on the first count and should have "said we got away with a draw against Brentford"

That guy is doing just fine. Some bug going around apparently, nothing to do with the nine pints he had pre game.

Champagne moment. When you turn around in despair to the person behind you who has also turned around in despair as Ince has the goal at his mercy, waiting for the home crowd to go mental and somehow Barbet saves the day. Just watched it back a few times and still can't quite work out how he did it.

All in all a great day out.

Barbets saving tackle. And Sammyso desire all game

Flat beer moment. The constant moaning of some around me. Sawyers you're sh*t, FFS Clarke etc. But the best one was "get Saunders off he's useless". Two seconds later Sammy puts in a great challenge and starts a breakaway.

If that was the tackle second half on the edge of our box? Cracking tackle and done well to keep hold of the ball

I couldn't tell the difference between Sawyers and Woods from my seat at Newcastle....

Yeah that one as well as the one where he put off Tom Ince. Thought our overall defensive work was brilliant the other night. Derby probably only had a few clear cut chances.

Now you know why!

I find that, as I get older, I appreciate some players wearing brightly coloured boots.
