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.

We used to sit behind him. His “gang” were invariably late and spent an age stood up in front of us sorting out their seating arrangements while the game was going on.
His triangle welcoming every corner was always welcome.

Can’t really tell from the photo, but is triangle man the same lad who took a load of action men attired as Bees footballers to Rochdale bitd? He had them all in protected foam in one of those heavy metal film cases, carefully removed them and placed them on top of the advertising hoarding at the front, there is photographic evidence of this, swear I haven’t made it up.
Looks similar, and equally eccentric behaviour

I was thinking exactly the same thing! When we scored up there he put all of their arms in the air to celebrate!!

Never thought about the symbolism - crikey what would a trombone mean. Acutally a nice comedy slide on the bone after Ivan sends a keeper the wrong way would be truly class.

Talking of instruments does anyone remember the samba band that turned up for one half of a game at GP? Apparently at half time Neil Smillie had asked for them to be silenced! I quite liked it.

Crikey, that sounds absolutely mental and really weird.

I’m in. 100%. In my half-half scarf, too. 🤓

No to bands at football generally but having someone doing sad trombone at opposition gaffes would be good banter.

The classic commentary from K Wolstenholme on the video of the season.
“It was calypso time at Griffin Park, but calapso time on the pitch”.
Genius.

The politest bit of racism I've heard at Brentford, addressed at Digne - 'Get back over the Channel!'. I did think of reporting it on the Kick it Out app.

That reminds me, a mate was shouting “5 fingered ******s” at some overzealous Norwich fans before a recent fixture. Didn’t sound right to me, I insisted it should be 6 (six) shouldn’t it? He argued thumbs don’t count. What is the politically correct insult please?

6 imvho. But then again depending on who it is your mate could be a country bumpkin too so should know !

Berkshire, Lboro was my uni!
What was written on the big banner the Everton fans unfurled just before ko ? Eyesight not great from row 3 of the Dugout.
Their Latin motto, followed by something like “now guys it’s time you lived up to this motto” not sure if it was against players or the board and Bill possibly

So why were they allowed a protest banner, but Oldham fans weren't.

A samba band has been turning up at Corinthian Casuals this season (genuine Brazilians, not south Londoners being ironic)

They had a banner that read "Enough is Enough". Some bloke from Everton TV was on Radio 5 last night and self imploding about the whole situation at Everton - including "...1-0 down at Brentford..." He mentioned the banner.

Their motto is basically a precis of our Newcastle friend fish dude’s complaint against Mike Ashley- a belief that even within the constraints the club has they’re not being the best they can. I suppose it’s the test for whether fans can sing “Super [club name], we’re by far the best team the world has ever seen” inironically even while losing. When going behind to Liverpool we sang it because we absolutely believed it. When Everton played us, they couldn’t.

Watching the reaction the Everton players got when they went over to acknowledge their supporters.

Or meeting Woody.
Woody is a lively lad.
I met him and his mum at half time.
BFC have installed one of the GP turnstiles in the concourse
of the N Stand, I used it as my beer table and clicked the pedal for
the little fella and his pals to pass through it, gave his mum a 5 minute break.

2 champers moments for me, Ivan's goal and the cracking save by the goalie's legs.

I completely missed this - where is it please? Will take a look at the Watford game...

Bill the Fish will be after you. That is skilled work that very few have the knowledge skill and experience to undertake.
