So I'm stuck for car parking as went to book Citroen and it was sold out :(
Its either park at Isleworth or Brentford and train in or park outside Kew Gardens and bus it.

naked wrestling on Kew Green
Tag traithlon from BCS, cycle to GriffinPark and a swim up the Thames, followed by mad dash into the stadium.
Matthew Benham was quoted as saying that Brentford's velocity was greater than a bunch of veggie eating weirdo's

1. It goes straight to penalties if the scores are level at full time
2. Programmes are £2 - cash payments unless you buy from the merch place behind the West Stand in which case it’s card

FGR website seem to imply there is live audio and live video coverage. Can we get it via them?😕

Can someone please explain in sensible English what my best travel plans are considering I have an elderly gentleman with knee problems with me and 2 children. We'll be driving in from Slough West (J7 of M4)

If we park at a train station around 7 and get the train to Kew Bridge for the match that will be OK. I don't understand - is Kew Bridge station exit only after the match?

Also does anyone know if the M4 is closed in the evening?

I don't think so (unless you're getting different info accessing the site from within UK) - when i click Watch Now as suggested here, it suggests their match at the weekend, not tonight :(

Probably for the best because...
"Video streaming includes live commentary by @Billy Hunt and the BBC Radio Gloucestershire team." 😲

You could park at Staines ,1903hrs service to Kew bridge arrives 1926hrs ✅

I'm sure you can access Kew bridge station after the game but only to E/b platform via new stairs. Access W/b would require you to cross the bridge within the station for trains to Staines etc. ( This is if arrangements are as per Arsenal )

I have no idea about M4, sadly.

FGR forum are reporting M4 has overnight closures tonight. Jcts 11/12 & 15 - however I can see nothing on the Highways agency website to confirm this. In any case you will be fine at jct 7.

Looks like the M4 is closed Westbound between junction 3 and 4B. According to the AA website.

10,000 for a 2nd round league cup match against a L2 side?! That's probably more Bees fans than we managed for even the big games at GP!
Exactly. I remember the 1990 Sheffield Wednesday second leg kick off delayed as 8,000 turned up.

First game at new stadium for me thanks to my pretty serious 20 TAPS. Going with the missus, we don't need any COVID tests done or anything, do we? Didn't see any mention of it in the COVID Code of Conduct.

I have a night off. I have a takeaway ordered. I have beer. I want to watch Brentford Reserves on the computer. This is all wrong. Benham out. :judge:

Bees OS says no video coverage in the UK or internationally.. Seems like a pretty definitive no... :(

Just seen the team and subs for the FGR. No great surprises, except no Charlie Goode at all. Does anyone know why? 🐝
