I could name a dozen moments but our stadium disco continuing with a Stevie Wonder classic being played right on the HT whistle was a funny and great moment for me 😀

Warm beer moment for me - utterly dreadful song, his worst by a mile and why the f**k would we play it then?

It was the randomness of it that got me, it just appeared at the most odd time but that is why it was a champagne moment ....classic choice 😀

You'll have a few of these "interesting" songs to come. A certain owner gets to select the first song after HT. And they all have a message :)

Next up: JoJo.
Anniversary yesterday??!! 😀

Kante was superb and I too remember a very impressive Swindon side with Hoddle pulling the strings like a puppet master all those years ago.
That was until Billy Manuel absolutely flattened him and trotted off with the ball.. :ROFLMAO:

Well, if it comes from the owner, it can be Agadoo and I would happily sing along!! 🎤

Agadoo do do, Mathias Jensen push Lukaku, agadoo do do, Ivan Toney score penalty, to the left to the right, Serg and Rico win the fight.

What was the name of the Stevie Wonder song yesterday? I want to try and work out the secret message Mr Benham is apparently trying to send us.

Maybe he was just appreciating the fact no one sung his name.

Was this the first song where fans knew he was choosing it?

Well, Ndlovu means elephant in Zulu and Xhosa so this means we must be signing someone from Southern Africa. Like Peter Ndlovu*, only 25 years younger.

Got this :)

(* The first African to play in the Premier League, with Coventry).

It was a song about a bloke making an unsolicited phone call and declaring his love. This is Benham’s Broken Brentford condoning what is obviously harassment. Another one to add to the list of songs to be banned. 🎣

There was a moment in the second half when the ref made yet another 'unpopular' decision and the whole ground erupted. It seemed to unite players and us combined and we never looked back from then on. As someone said the roof would have well and truly come off had we scored.

So really a thank you to banana for telling us not to sing it.

Superb team effort aided by us as the extra player!

I think, as many have said that the new stadium is already feeling like our new home.
The atmosphere and support are tremendous and the sound rockets around - much more participation from everyone than even at GP.

It’s being noticed by positive media comments, and even by Tuchel, who remarked upon the level of support we had as we battered them for the last 20 minutes!

The final minutes of the match, when we were subjecting Chelsea to a seemingly endless bombardment, especially from Zanka’s long throws, when Sky commentators verbalised what we could all see - “Chelsea are on the ropes!”

My champagne moment was that we kept Chelsea pinned in their own half for a ridiculously long period.

Make no mistake, other teams will go chasing a goal against Chelsea this season and will get obliterated. The fact that we were camped in their half and prevented any meaningful break away is perhaps the most reassuring moment this season to convince me that we can compete at this level.

I reckon that at least 15 other PL teams would have crumbled under that pressure and we’ve had won comfortably.

I must have missed something - Eddie Jordan has a box at LR? The F1 Eddie Jordan?
Wonder why Jeremy Clarkson, Chelsea supporter, was slumming it in the South Stand, and not in a box.😂

I looked around afterwards to see if I could see where he had parked his Lamborghini tractor from his farm.
Yes, Lamborghini originally started out making tractors before sports cars!

In previous seasons in the Championship and below we’d definitely have conceded a second after camping out for an equaliser like that. To have not even given Chelsea a sniff of one is amazing.

Gary Neville said it on commentary, we made one mistake when Norgaard gave away a free kick for a push in 25 minutes.
To be that intense and not give away cheap free kicks was hugely impressive.

Lamborghini started making cars after its founder got into an argument with Enzo Ferrari over a faulty clutch in his Ferrari and decided he could do better!

I don't know the whole history but i did happen to be in an obscure museum in Eastern Czech Rep last week and got a photo of a classic Lambo tractor, alongside a Porsche!

Champagne moment?
Talking in the pub after the game to a bunch of Chelsea fans after the game who were raving about the Bees, and how we will stay up no question.
