What ! You want to keep taking you wife into a situation where she’s offended - well shame on you if you think that’s the way to go. I just want to get on with staying in the Premiership and for this site not to be used by people regularly complaining where the have set themselves up to be upset. The first post of this thread in my opinion had a justifiable reason to contact the club and hopefully it will be sorted and the fan banned but some of the subsequent post appear to me to be people that could easily avoid what they and guests don’t like , however they repeat the action
So the answer to the problem is now to remove the offended rather than the offender? Hmmm!

That said, she hasn't been back.

Should women not go out alone at night too?
Did I suggest that but as you want my opinion there are areas and places I would avoid myself and would expect any sensible woman to which of course not the same as suggesting women should not go out alone.

Well I would suggest that you views are somewhat, outdated. Women shouldn't be excluded from places because they are made to feel uncomfortable. It's not them with the problem.

There was a woman on twitter yesterday who was taking her 10yo son to his first live football match. I think she accepted that there would be some industrial language but I'd hate their first experience of Brentford to be tarnished by someone like the moron mentioned in the OP who has been rightfully reported.

If he was *found* guilty, you mean.

Not that it justifies it but what Ronaldo experienced last night is a drop in the ocean compared to the stick that Jamie Cureton used to get!
Yep well he did score a goal that cost us promotion and was a continuous thorn in our side over 15 years or so. Just saying.

I agree everyone should be able to go anywhere in and ideal world but I think it is completely stupid to go and watch a football match and continually sit where you or your guest feels uncomfortable.
So what is your solution?

Completely agree with that.
But I don't think the songs are "banter", just reminding the man himself what a horrible scumbag he is to throw him off his game, and by all accounts, baring one chest pass, it completely worked.
The Mendy situation was weird because he wasn't actually playing but he was literally in prison for a few months after finally being let out on bail after the 4th attempt and Ronaldo admitted to paying the girl £300,000. Both scumbags so any songs of abuse being sung their way, I'll be joining in with
Bit of an odd take on things mate. I doubt it puts them off their game, (he just had a **** performance) I doubt he was thinking “Christ 1000 Brentford fans are digging me out here”. And I bet for the majority of people singing these songs it’s all about the banter.

Just my opinion. I would rather sing about our club and players then joining in with songs about people that have been accused of rape etc. It’s outdated and tbh very boring as It actually achieves nothing but put off our own fan base (see post #1)

Well done you have ignored the whole point of my first posting to suit you woke approach. I agree everyone should be able to go anywhere in and ideal world but I think it is completely stupid to go and watch a football match and continually sit where you or your guest feels uncomfortable. I don’t think my views are outdated at all thanks but I would suggest that your approach is like King Canute whilst mine is accept things you cannot change
What is this "woke"? Wake up and join your contemporaries. I'm sure a young chap such as yourself shouldn't really be inhabiting the '70s.

Back to my wife... she was never offended at GP. In fact she's not easily offended at all (until you marry her, obviously).*

* Yes, I know - sexist comment of the day.

Well reading GPG lately,it seems to me that there is a lot of sh1t the club needs to sort out,going by all the complaints!
Is it " new Brentford" fans because there was not all this crap going on at GP, except away fans in home ends, and proper Bees getting chucked out for no good reason, other than that, not a lot.
Seems,we have attracted some unsavouries and some, dare I say ,easily offended supporters.

I am not condoning the actions mentioned above, but we have gone from normal humorous banter and chanting to the extreme and everyone seems to find something to complain about, from Samosas, WiFi signal ( you there to watch a game) to swearing and now (mentioned above) touching up females.

Fek me sideways, thought we was one big family, seems that family loyalty has gone out the window at BCS.
Give me away days all the time,at least proper fans are there and not the " oh you touched me" or " can you stop singing,I can't hear my iPhone"

Perhaps a " do me a favour mate,I got my kids here" Could be used, I am sure if it turned nasty, there will be others to back you up, I would.

All this reporting , fek sake about time some started to man up!!!
Or is the use of Man out of order now days.
Fek me!
** No offence to anyone, just fed up with keep reading negative sh1te***

As I played the Les Dawson myself, I suppose I shouldn't allow myself to be offended by your impertinent request. Gentlemen's Club, and now a Readers' Wives feature. We really are heading for the future here, aren't we?

Just to clarify, as you seem to have become confused... she was offended at BCS and wasn't offended at GP.

The issue is Lush is that you could move away from the nutters at GP. Plenty of space. At BCS there's nowhere else to go so you are stuck next to the nutter.

Well Les I also seem to be cast as Les that being Sir Les Patterson. I am sorry to hear you wife was offended at BCD and I hope this doesn’t happen in the future but think that if it didn’t you would consider moving to different area of the ground. Somehow this , what I regard as a sensible suggestion , is read as I support men only crowds ! I have made my suggestion which people can take how they like - I need to get on with my work as Australian cultural attaché

97% of women reported they were victims of sexual harassment last year? Bollox mate
Yeah, I’m quite surprised there’s 3% who’ve not been. I recommend you talk to some women. Most instances are shrugged off because life’s too short but that doesn’t make them OK.

If I remember correctly - he settled out of court rather than go to trial .
There seems to be claims after most matches of inappropriate charts. I don’t understand why people that know what is likely to be said or sung would take the easily offend wife or child into such a situation. Why not go in the family stand and avoid being the West Stand. I am not condoning or condemning any chant but do wonder about the motives of some individuals. I am sure the club would arrange for your season tickets to changed if you wish but please do not continue to take females into any areas where they are liable to offended it’s irresponsible and I won’t listen to the pathetic excuse “ I should be able to go where I want. We all like in the world where sane people avoid areas which they are not safe or comfortable with.
Not sure if this was aimed at me amongst others, but we are in the "family stand" - N127 - and can hear the West Stand loud and clear. That really is a good thing, except for the odd occasion when it is not.

That's sexist. ;)

My husband is ex-Navy and he says I swear worse than most of his former shipmates and I can certainly outswear him on a good day. I don't and never have had a problem with swearing. I'm very much in the Stephen Fry and Sean Lock camp that when people say it's unnecessary, there are numerous occasions when it is f*cking necessary. I'm not so impressed with abuse for the sake of "banter". As for being woke and lefty, yeah, guilty as charged although most people don't even know what woke means. It doesn't mean politically correct.

Spot on, all of that. "My" other ticket actually belongs to our daughter who is away in Paris working and playing football. She is tea-total and rarely swears. But when she does, boy does it mean something!!!! Annoyingly (?), she is never offended by anything she sees at any football match. Woe betide anyone who does eventually manage to offend her, because despite appearances and her gentle demeanour, she can be quite terrifying and can probably handle herself better than her father (not saying a great deal, admittedly). LOL

Perhaps BFC need to extend the family area,so those that are easily offended can go in there?
They have then moved away from said nutter/s

@hobbsy perhaps an idea for BIAS?

Excellent suggestion, let’s take the same approach with racist and homophobic incidents, chants etc too.

If anyone from an ethnic minority or LGBT community are offended they can just not come.

Great, now we can close all those threads about racism and how to stop it amongst Brentford fans as we’ve solved the issue.

The difficulty here is that what one person finds offensive another doesn't. Excessive swearing doesn't bother me and it would never have stopped me taking my son.

My GF heard the Ronaldo chants last night and was laughing.

Where the line is clear is regarding protected characteristics such as race, sexual orientation etc and we of course need to eradicate that.

Everything else, things like the Mendy chants, excessive swearing is way more subjective and I'm slightly unsure whether that should be 'policed' in the way some have alluded to on here.

I for one am getting tired of this "New Brentford" b***ocks.

If you are at the ground supporting the Bees then you are Brentford. Doesn't matter if you've been doing it for 50 years or 5! While I have utmost respect for everyone who has done the hard yards travelling up and down the country when we were in league 1 & 2 that doesn't give automatically allow the very small minority who do so to slag off newer or less dedicated fans.

Some people have trouble with the idea that times have changed, and things that were accepted 20, 10, 5 or even 2 years ago are now being called out. These people like to label this 'woke' or 'lefty' or anyone who agrees the ever delightful 'libtard'. Why? Because it's easier for to belittle something/one than it is to recognise that maybe they need to moderate their own behaviour.

The world is slowly changing, and despite some peoples protests, the club intends to change with it and be more inclusive. This means that people will have to change attitudes or, whether they like it or not, they will be moved on. Which, if proven, will be what happens to the sad guy in the original post.

They’ll probably say stop harassing them. Have none of them ever been wolf-whistled, felt they ought to move seats on the bus because there’s a creep sitting nearby? Do you not ask your daughters to give you a ring when walking home alone late at night to make sure they’re OK?

Hi all,

I'm normally a reader rather than a contributer to the site but after last night's game, I felt I needed to share my experience of repeated inappropriate language by a fellow "fan" in the west stand.

I've been coming to matches for 17 years and have been a STH for a majority of those years but last night was the worst experience I've ever had attending a Brentford match following the behaviour of this "fan".

The word c*nt is frequently part the the man's vocabulary at most matches,fine, but tonight appeared to be another level. Not only did he repeat the word every 30 to 40 seconds, he did so using homophobic, racist and derogatory comments towards players on the pitch.

I'm all for a bit of passionate vocal support, and am not against a bit of swearing and telling the ref he may have it wrong but people like him need to be challenged.

I won't go into all the detail, as I have left it to the club to action, but the repeated use of terms such as "batty boy" , "poof", " you f*cking spastic" and "stick your cock in his mouth Ivan, that will shut him up" is not okay.

"f*ck off back to madeira you f******g madeira looking c*nt". "You f*cking French f*ck". He also deliberately mispronounced a black players name(Elanga) a number of times and said "or whatever you are". I believe this was done with racial intent.

Unfortunately a group of supporters began chanting about Ronaldo being a sex offender. The man began to laugh and joke at this, saying "haha she said no, christiano. Don't touch her" he continued with a similar comment which I cannot recall. This made the lady stood in front of him shudder.

All this has made myself, my mates and a number of supporters around us quite uncomfortable. The male stands behind a young boy (maybe 12yrs old) and his mother. The mother was visibly uncomfortable with the situation.

I tried to report during the game but didn't have signal in the stadium. I emailled the club last night when I got home. The great news is they have already responded and are investigating.

In hindsight I should have challenged this man more and will do so if it continues at other matches.

I suppose all I'm saying is, please do report this kind of behaviour. It's not okay. It's never been okay. And it will never be okay.

Reporting text number during games is 62277 "BFC" followed by your message. Or report@brentfordfc.com

Rant over. Up the bees.
Somebody in the north stand was saying Cristiano Ronaldo is a sex offender, I found this totally disgusting and unaccountable, fortunately none of his friends joined in so shut up. I did say that isn't a very nice thing to say.

The young ladies around me love the chants and were joining in.
Stop being offended on other people's behalf, it's as if we have certain fans who only come to games to be "offended" 😔
I think he was offended himself, not for someone else.

I'm halfway with Nickabee on this one. Though rather than those likely to be offended to be encouraged to move elsewhere, we could designate a separate section. Somewhere where those who wish to vent abuse against darkies, poofs, tarts etc could do so, to their heart's content. Perhaps it could be situated in the Dark Ages.

Na. People should just behave themselves. Nothing wrong with the odd swear word but it’s becoming common place for people to F and c**t about everything.

It’s like saying everyone who wants to swear, be controversial, sing outdated songs can go here everyone else sit over here. That’s just skirting the problem mate. People should be able to sit anywhere without having a s**t experience.

Back to the point about women shouldn’t be going out at night etc.

People just need to behave.

Just to say that I heartily agree with the view expressed above, and on at least one other thread, that references to rape and their victims have absolutely no place in a football chant!

Yes, 45 years of coming to games just to get offended. Clearly can't get enough of it!

I'm offended by it, it makes my partner less keen to come and I have to explain it to my nine year old daughter. 97% of women reported that they had been the subject of sexual harrasment according to a report by UN Women UK last year. Why would you want to go anywhere to be reminded of that? There are plenty of ways to vent at players/officials without mentioning alleged sexual offending.
That stat has had a good spinning.

Turns out that the actual result was that 3% of 18-24 yo women could not recall being sexually harassed. 86% said they had and 11% didn't answer. The harassed figure went down to 71% when including older women.

Still a lot, but not 97%

Individual shouts probably don't travel that far in a noisy stand.
I told Sam Saunders that he was blowing out his arse and won’t be wearing the brentford shirt again. From the back of Ealing Road and moments later he scored and gave the big f*** you to the crowd (me). Years later he referred to this incident in a besotted or tits interview. I actually felt quite remorseful and a bit of a cult reading it.

I’m in two minds about the “she said no” chant. If it is upsetting for our fans in exploiting a serious and harmful thing for a song then it should stop. But it does involve a strong affirmation of the importance of consent so in a way it is also heartening as a change in attitude away from leering at the Babettes or chanting at the very pretty woman in the exec boxes at Wolves that “we” were going to steal her off her boyfriend (though she did look like she was enjoying it to be fair). It’s a minefield.

Now I'm even more confused 😂 I think this proves that sometimes we're better off not over analysing everything and just going with our gut feeling. Personally speaking, the "she said no" chant and similar ones aren't for me so I wouldn't be singing them.

Incidentally, I feel like we haven't covered enough heavy topics this week and I think you've raised an interesting point - standby for the 'Did the Brentford Babettes appropriate women and what should we now do about it?" thread that I'm about to start.

I think the Babettes should be invited to a BCS game to receive an apology from the fans for years of being exploited. Assuming they aren’t busy babysitting their grandchildren. And that they didn’t in fact absolutely love being cheerleaders when they were young children.

More seriously I think it really would be nice to have a “where are they now” piece in the programme if one hasn’t been done recently. I wonder if any/many are still Bees fans and come to games

Regularly report lack of hand sanitiser use but the club simply do not care. To them it’s all about money the less that’s used the less they pay to refill!!

the seating issue is a new problem the lack of hand sanitiser use has been ongoing for year and years

Now I'm even more confused 😂 I think this proves that sometimes we're better off not over analysing everything and just going with our gut feeling. Personally speaking, the "she said no" chant and similar ones aren't for me so I wouldn't be singing them.

Incidentally, I feel like we haven't covered enough heavy topics this week and I think you've raised an interesting point - standby for the 'Did the Brentford Babettes appropriate women and what should we now do about it?" thread that I'm about to start.
Sometimes? All the time :judge:

More trouble, more arrests, fewer games - the key stats​

  • Data collected from 1 July to 31 December 2021 from English domestic competitions only and compared to same six-month period for season 2019-20 - the last one without restrictions pre-pandemic
  • 802 football related arrests so far this season - an increase in 47% from 547 arrests in 2019-20 - the highest number of arrests since UKFPU started collating in season 2015-16
  • Incidents of disorder reported at almost half (48%) of all games across Premier League, EFL and National League - compared to 34% in season 19-20
  • There were 759 reported incidents including flares, missiles and hate crime - up 36% from 560 in 19-20
  • 210 incidents were involving young supporters under the age of 25, up from 154 in 19-20. The five year average of incidents involving under 25 was 168
  • That's despite fewer games this season (1,581) due to postponements, than in 19-20 (1,670)
  • The biggest increase in reported incidents of disorder is in the Championship and National league. Up 58% in Championship and 56% in national league from 2019-20

Regarding the chants: My mate who has regularly followed the Bees for 10 years both home and away, said there were two loud mouth louts who were more interested in shouting every sort of obscenity they could through out the game and trying to get others to join them. He is not easily offended and in all the 10 years I have known him following Brentford, he has NEVER COMMENTED on the swearing.

When we met up after the game, he said it was more than the usual shouting and singing with some swear words, he said what they were saying was disgusting. They didn't seem to care about the very young children. He said that it ruined the whole experience of going to the game. Is the only way we can be the 12th man at the BCS this kind of action. Fortunately I was in the North Stand and we had a great time apart from the result. Please report these idiots with the seat numbers.
