Demarai Gray warming up about 5 mins into the 2nd half, sees the ball boy by the corner flag rubbing his hands together to keep them warm so he gave him his gloves. Classy touch that.
That is awesome. Lovely act of kindness.

Tinpot Benham’s Broken Brentford didn’t even build a rotating stadium or move the sun to ensure nobody was ever inconvenienced? 😡

They are such w*nkers, aren‘t they….

So sad.

You wouldn’t believe how many people Benham had to bribe to ensure that the sun was shining directly into the eyes of Everton fans on the afternoon of 28th November 2021.

Mine is a bit of an odd one because ultimately it proved a totally meaningless moment.

Just after the penalty incident they broke quickly and created a really good chance. Who was the person putting in the last minute 'goal-saving challenge' on the edge of the his own six-yard box? Bryan Mbuemo!!

Says everything you need to know about the togetherness and mentality of our team - and it was great too to see him get loads of congratulations from all the defenders. Then VAR happened so it didn't matter, but it still stood out for me.

This!!! Absolutely loved that, it was a real crunching block and although ultimately meaningless, it was brilliant to see.

Standing in the West stand for the 1st time and doing the half time walk around that I used to do on the Ealing Rd terraces just to say hello to one or two people I haven't seen for a couple of years.

Ivan’s cool penalty kick sending Pickford the wrong way so much, that he didn’t even bother to dive!

All watched by Gareth Southgate who was there at the stadium.

Brilliant stuff, as Southgate now ponders do I need an expert penalty taker, as we are bound to meet Germany some time in the World Cup!

May have been looking at a certain Left Back.

I sat next to him on New Rd about 3 years ago when we beat Millwall and he produced his mini triangle every time we scored .I went from “wtf” to loving the eccentricity ! 👍🐝
Not quite right. He rings it every time we get a corner. We used to sit in front of him in the New Road, now we can just hear it across the West Stand. A lovely bit of Griffin Park eccentricity which brings a smile.

Less champagne, more congrats.

To the fella that passed a log in the West Stand upper toilets that caused them to overflow (and presumably the cause of the ceiling leak in the lower stand). Congrats. A tremendous effort. It looked like King Kongs finger...
How is this the first post on the champagne moment thread, it’s not f***ing rugby!!

70 minutes gone, Everton goalie tries to start a quick counter with a quick pass out to the left, we look a bit at sea. Two Everton players crash in to each other and the ball goes out for a throw. Priceless.

See also - Coleman losing his mind in front of the South Stand the last minute when another sloppy pass went out harmlessly for a throw.

You must have been near me then as I sat right in front of his group, always wondered how it started, should of asked him really but I assume the triangle represents the corner triangle hence the ringing whenever we got one. Thank goodness he doesn't bring a trombone.

The referee, trotting over to his little monitor, when we ALL know what that means!

That, and the relaxed feeling I have watching Toney line up to take a penalty. Never felt this confident in my 30 years supporting Brentford!

We achieved something quite miraculous yesterday!

We beat the team, Everton, with the most number of seasons of any club in the top league of English football - 118 seasons!

We also beat Arsenal, the team with the 2nd most seasons in the top league, 96, all of which have been consecutive!

So anyone on here, yesterday and today, who is moaning or failing to applaud this achievement, needs to go and support that lot at Loutish Road, and stop pretending to be a real Brentford supporter.

Because you are not. You are just someone who deserves a team to moan and whinge at, and that team plays in blue and white hoops.

So goodbye, and leave your seat for someone who’ll cheer and sing!

Brilliant achievement you Bees 🐝 😊.
Absolutely brilliant!❤️🐝❤️

Seemed an odd time for the light show - why not time it to be at the start of Freed from Desire if you want people's attention, rather than in the middle of a Hey Jude singalong.

However they did it when the players ran out vs Blackburn in front of fans for the first time last year (soundtracked to Breathe by Prodigy)....I thought that was pretty good.

I was convinced that we were going to make history and he was going to come back and say "nah, all good."

I don’t dislike a decent light show, but yesterday’s effort was just like someone flicking the on/off switch for 20 seconds 🤷🏼‍♂️
Yes, I haven’t really mastered the controls yet :(

Watching Pitchford chuntering away to no-one in particular for a good few minutes towards the end.
He was certainly going ape, towards the end of the game, not quite sure what set him off.

I thought it might have been Begovic playing with our electrics, instead of kicking a wall in!

More likely it was simply the electrifying atmosphere after a great win!⚡️💥🐝👏😊

Either his teeth were chattering or he was giving himself a team talk along the lines of “What on earth am I doing playing for this club?!”😥
