I don’t think it’s any coincidence that the two worst games for atmosphere at LR this season have been for Leicester and Everton. Both Sunday lunchtime kick-offs that didn’t leave a massive amount of time for a drink beforehand and a lot of people had work the next day.

Sunday lunchtime is my least favourite slot for a game.
I would say that one of the best atmospheres we've experienced this season - home and away - was at Elland Road for a Sunday 2pm, so maybe we should do more to generate an atmosphere on the early kick offs? Easier said than done of course but it shows it's possible. Villa (h) was good too.

How many times out of 100, if you'd seen someone else ask that question, would you have put "Yes"?
Actually, that's incorrect. It's questions that include "Does anyone know if.....", which can normally be answered "Yes". :cool:

As far as early morning drinking time is concerned maybe you can swiftly organise a mass tutorial led by Fleet John!
Think that might set plenty up for lunchtime ko.

Hopefully those ST holders, like myself, that couldn't make the original date, will get first dibs on any returns.

This is going to be absolutely massive.

If you’re not prepared to go and sing at the top of your voice for 110 minutes in unconditional support for the lads (ten mins before KO. Ten mins post-match disco inferno) please surrender your tickets now to real Brentford fans. No discussion, no negotiating, no excuses, no latitude. No scarfers, no runners :)

I‘m looking at the South Stand Stiffs Alliance here, plus the sit-down, shut-up merchants we seem to have sadly attracted. 😡

Can‘t wait!!!

It's either going to be a great time to play them or the first game they galvanize and collectively follow the Rangnick Protocol.

3-0 or 1-0 then.

The Ragnick Protocol? Great film. That’s the one where the little German rants and raves ‘cos he realises no one will follow his orders, and it all ends in tears, right? Or is that Downfall I’m thinking of? 😐

Maybe you could a transfer, job done with the West Stand. Move onto a new challenge, a bit like Ramus.

I'm not a ST holder but did have a ticket for the original game, then tested positive for Covie so sold it to a fellow GPGer.
I will of course honour the sale and hope something comes up for this.
I'm sure there'll be something on the Exchange but as I've already purchased I won't be able to.

You don’t have a choice but to honour the sale.

If I were you I would call the Box Office and inform them that you sold your ticket on the Exchange and would appreciate being prioritised for any available tickets otherwise you won’t bother with the Exchange again. The club are sympathetic to such cases but I would make yourself known…

I'm not a ST holder so bought it when it hit my TAPS tranche, so wasn't sold via the exchange, it was via PM on here and bank transfer.

You're stuffed then. Unless you can obtain a ticket in a similar fashion.

Know what you mean. :sorted:

But there's a small part of me would like to see us treat it as just another game, against just another bunch of mid-table Northern monkeys.

"Yeah, that's that one out of the way, a useful warm-up for Wolves at the weekend..."

That's pretty much what I did as soon as the fixture was confirmed.

Fans should note that this date is subject to neither side needing to play a rearranged Emirates FA Cup tie the same week.


All Match Tickets from the initial postponed fixture remain valid for the rescheduled date.
If you’ve already downloaded your print at home ticket with the old date, you don’t need to download a new one. Supporters who can’t attend the rearranged match will be able to claim a refund on their ticket until Wednesday 12 January at 5pm. Visit the Box Office, call 0333 005 8521 or email tickets@brentfordfc.com to get a refund.

Tickets listed on the Ticket Exchange will be available at adult rate next week.

I posted on the FA Cup thread
Basically PL clubs have been told any player registered to play football for you counts as one of the minimum 14 required

So there is very little chance of FA Cup matches being called off this weekend

Will ST holders that sold theirs on the exchange be able to purchase these?

I would imagine any STH or members who subsequently sold their tickets will be flagged as not allowed to purchase (as already having a ticket).

No Ronaldo or Rashford in their squad today.
Martial refusing to be involved.
Today's result "feels like a loss".
We need to sense blood both on and off the pitch, be on it from the start (and beforehand in the stands) and make it a nightmare for Rangnick.
We can do this!!!
COME ON!!!!

I agree. What an amazing time to be a bee. Talking about turning over Man Utd with confidence. Nurse, he’s losing it again!

Due to Covid might have 2 East Stand Tickets for Man U available - Adults £ 40 each - would need to collect from the Uxbridge area

Apparently Ronaldo didn’t fly down with the squad this evening. There’s going to be a lot of unhappy tourists!

Oh really. Today's news was all about Ronaldo and Rashford

Mind you Ronaldo must have just acquired an environmental concious and drove down in his electric car. Or walked.


Is there a reference for his absence of a boarding pass?

Train alert Since earlier in the week SW Railways have amended the timetable for Reading bound trains leaving Kew Bridge at 22.09(Brentford 22.12) and 23.09(Brentford 23.12).
No gain in going to Richmond as the last train leaves at 23.48 and then a change at Staines to get the train that leaves KB at 23.09)
Banana, can you just double check this and maybe do a post also for the London bound trains.
