Thank you Idi Amin for chucking out my parents in 1972 from Uganda, I could have been a chief with 6 wives instead I am a Brentford fan. :D and no regrets !!!
Unless they were sisters, you could have had 6 mothers-in-law - think on that, Chief!

Anyhow, is Ivan Toney single? If so you could always marry him. (Hands off Sergi, I've got my eye on him ;))

Really like how going a goal down doesn’t phase us. We keep going with belief that we can win. That final 20 mins when we upped our game, just brilliant.
long way to go but I’m enjoying this moment ... top of the league:)

so if my calcs are right we have played 9 games against the top 7 teams, Our record is 5 draws and 4 wins. 17 points from 27 points (roughly 2 points per game)...from 9 games against the top 7. It also is of course the case that proportionally we have overplayed the top 7...just saying - easier run in?

Just to add one more thing to your great list -We are 17 points, yes 17, ahead of Boro’ in 7th place! Incredible!
When we lost to Stoke, we were 4 points behind them. We haven't lost since and are now 18 points ahead of them. Not bad that.

TBH I thought they were a very good team. No play acting a good footballing side who played great stuff at times. I did wonder if they could keep up the pace they started with, thankfully ran out of gas around 65/70 minutes. Their subs bench isn’t anywhere near as strong as ours and we've still got Pontus, Christian and Emilliano to come back over the next couple of weeks. Great result and I now believe we ARE going up. On that showing, I hope Reading do well.

I guess they'll be absolutely made up in the Valleys tonight :wave:
Reading gave it a right go and for that I was impressed with them. They gave us far more problems that Swansea did. It took courage to take us on and fair play to them for doing that.

That's exactly how I read the game. Reading played superbly for the first 60 mins (kudos to them) - we had to be brave and resolute and dig deep - then we had another gear and our class shown.

Thank you Idi Amin for chucking out my parents in 1972 from Uganda, I could have been a chief with 6 wives instead I am a Brentford fan. :D and no regrets !!!
Now that’s a cracker

There's a little devil on my shoulder that keeps saying 'Brentford innit' and I'm quite grateful to have him there because it means I just enjoy each win as it comes and resist counting chickens. (I'm also bloody insufferable on match days and conditioned to be convinced we are going to lose - still beer is a good anaesthetic during the game but only if taken in excessive quantities.)

Compare and contrast the way the Reading team played and performed with those utter ****s from Swansea. No diving, elbows in faces, bullying the ref, hacking players down, Neymar-esque cheating for 90 mins. Just a game with two excellent teams going head to head, where our extra fitness and skill tonight won out.

Let's face it we are Premiership. I said a week ago we honestly are one of the best 15 teams in English football right now. However. right now we are a Championship club but have we ever scored 17 goals in 4 games before in our history?
Premier League...

Seriously impressive again - we just keep going and going until we grind down the opposition. A huge difference this season is the number of chances required to score is far lower so we are converting relatively few shots into goals where inprevious campaigns we would create loads and score a small percentage.

Liverpool at present
1-1 at halftime and it was pretty obvious what would happen next. JDS was disappointing until his goal. This team is a machine. Incredible. Looks like some records are being set this season.

Excellent win.. Reading were terrific and gave us a good battle... Canos sub changed the dynamic of the game.. JDS was below par but pulled out two crackers.. Henry, Pinnock and MBS magnificent.. Toney one of the best ever players.. Prem here we come!

Credit to Reading for playing football in what was a tough but very clean game all round.

Their fans forum generally saying how we are noticeably the best team they’ve played, and deserve to go up.

Also praise for Da Silva, but they think Canos was the game changer with his energy, and he made the third goal.

I don't know which way to turn. I'm too excited 😜
That was me just after Josh got his second. Been a couple of 'incidents' of my spoiling it for two others with the minute or so ifollow delay and have made a conscious effort to leave the phone alone but got the message through and it was a glorious 30 odd seconds of not knowing what to do with myself!

Great result when we were not at our best until the last 1/4. How good would the last 10 minutes have been with 4k Bees behind the goal tonight. Should go back to bed for a kip but now way would I sleep. Cant wait for Sunday and a decent 9pm start. Looks like Valentines Day lunch this year!!!

But if I’m that c**t Cooper I’d be saying ‘yeh, but we got a point and Reading didn’t’ .

You and me both. But even I’m starting to believe
