I am not aware if there is a Brentford club motto in the same vein as "more than a club", "prepared", "you'll never walk alone".

Following the Guardian article may I suggest either of Josh DeSilvas phrases when discussing how it feels to be in the club.

"Good People Do Good Things"
or, one reflection my favourite is -
"You Improve You Enjoy" (Vos Amplio Fruar Te would be the foxy Latin version)

I have listed a list from wiki, the poopah scoopers one feels a bit like Plan A for the sake of having a plan

Remarkably, I posted the same suggestion (using the same Google Translate undoubtedly) in this thread. I clearly have very limited creativity.

facere homines bonos bona- good people do good things (according to google translate)

Anything with bees in it in Latin will have “apes” and that might be unfortunate!

Been thinking about this recently and kind of goes along with the "Music to run out to" thread.

Hate saying it but Marching on Together as a song and moto is quite rousing when the crowd at Elland Rd sing it as one, just like You'll Never Walk Alone at Anfield

We should have a consistent moto and song - perhaps new words sung to Hey Jude music and incorporating a motto

I'll get to work on that!

In the spirit of the film ‘Clash of the Titans’ whose tag line ‘’Titans Will Clash” never really set the pulse racing, how about ‘Brentford: Fording the River Brent’

How about “nos potuit, fuerit a remigando club “which has a great ring to it and is Latin for we could of been a rowing club. Probably go done well with people of Strand on the Green that we so keen we moved closer to them

I very much like the QPR one - Ludere Causa Ludendi (To play for the sake of playing) but it should be changed to To play for the sake of losing.

That is the motto of Queen's Park FC in Scotland - For the sake of the game -
