Saying hello to Fleet John at half time, he was looking very dapper I must say which is no less than what you'd expect from a chap at a big London derby. No news on when the next match report might surface though.....

"School in the morning..." and "jump" to the handful of Spurs youngsters remaining "upstairs" and mouthy after match.

he was still looking dapper at 3.00am on the Euston concourse, but that’s another story !

Shandon entering the contest. His drive and energy made us much more of a threat and for a spell I think we really rattled them.

(Keep believing everyone! Week in, week out, we are now playing teams that we would have been wetting ourselves about if we'd drawn them in the Cup - and our performances are PL quality!!)

Meeting Keith Lawrence at Northumberland Park and chatting to him whilst trying to get out of the station.
Really nice bloke and a great natter.
I reminded him of goals he scored which made his mates laugh.

Junior horsham has now seen the Bees in London derbies at Chelsea, Fulham, QPR, AFC Wimbledon, Millwall, Palace, Charlton, Arsenal, Tottenham, West Ham and Orient.
All by the age of 14.
Not bad.

Charlie’s tackle on England’s No 9.
Kane is supremely unlikeable when he's an opposing player, isn't he? He looked absolutely devoid of application which staggered me considering he's England captain, but in the game last night - as per last season - what stood out was his constant moaning and gamesmanship (eg late on, standing still in the spurs area then dropping to his knees when a Bees player dared wander near him). Some would call it experience, game management, but it's just pathetic. The fact Moss fell for it was equally embarrassing.

Just being in such an amazing stadium, in front of 54,000 and full away end (ok, so the away end facilities were rubbish IMO, didn't even bother queuing at half time - BCS far better). And seeing my kids' faces light up as we walked in. I'm not a long-timer like many of you on here, but my kids will be Bees for life, and we all know that these are truly amazing times for anyone linked to Brentford. Drink it in 😊

Think he joined the police when he left Brentford.

Our support sounded great on the telly box :sorted:
Drinking with Spurs fans after, who had been behind the goal at the other end. They insisted, without any prompting, that our support was loud throughout and that theirs was pants ever since moving to the new stadium.

He was the same level of w***er when we played them in the League Cup last season. Very similar to Alan Shearer in that respect.

Not so amazing for me. All the gaudy lighting and ridiculous music and that strange 'up and at 'em' speech played over the tannoy before kick off was just embarrassing. But then, I'm more old school. A monstrous spaceship style thing dropped onto the Tottenham High Road is obscene considering the surrounding poverty and completely alien to my view of football. I am aware I am possibly not the target audience but with a choice of Spuds or Accrington away on a Thursday I know I'd be heading north to Lancashire.
Sorry, it's champagne thread, so I'll go with Charlie's tackle on Kane. He used to go to school with my kids so we have followed his progression closely. Pleased he's got fit and so pleased for him he's getting game time and certainly not looking out of place.

Whole evening excellent apart from the football (lucky to only lose 2-0 imho, Conte did a job on us but any points at Spurs away would be bonus points).

Catching up with some good mates, decent little pub the Olive Tree by the ground, nice ground, putting 2 very aggressive stewards back in their box with @taxi driver at half time 😂 😉 😎 etc, Shandon & Wissa back, decent journey there & back (why did we used to always go to seven sisters & walk 2 miles down that disgusting high road?!), £4.49 Amstel in the ground.

Onwards & upwards, keep the faith, bring on dirty Leeds.

... and TV adverts for random things at half-time – wtf? Just like Sky but without the rambling know-nothings.

Yes agree, we had just gone 2-0 down, and within a minute or so all you could hear was bee supporters “We’re by far the the great team”. Great effort 👏

A really cathartic moment for those of us in the hospitality areas close to the away support - after having to sit in silence listening to loud, obnoxious Premier League Know Nothing fans criticising us all evening* it was good to be able to let rip at the end when I knew it didn't matter if I was thrown out.

*My favourite moment was when they were speculating on how old the newly grey Sergi must be and came to the conclusion that he must be in his 40's and waiting for his bus pass

Realising after 30 minutes that the Spurs greatest hits of football chants consisted of just one song, and one which they shamelessly stole from a more deserving club.

A decent point, well made but I suppose it does contribute economically to an area which really needs anything it can get. I am not sure what the community efforts of Spurs are like but hopefully they try to maximise their local economic impact.

I enjoyed our second half performance, particularly the contributions of Norgaard, Shandon and Rico

But my champagne moment was the two Bees' fans on the tube home, just after Seven Sisters, taking absolutely no sh*t from a couple of completely obnoxious Spurs scallys who were giving it large to any opposition fans they came across.

The utter frustration, exasperation and growing embarrassment on one of the prized tw*ts faces, as they were resoundingly put in their place was a joy to behold. Well played gentlemen!! :owusu:

There was a short rendition of a ManUre fans' one, too.

The important people stayed mate. Those of us that remember the dark days and appreciate the efforts of our boys against a “top 4” side. Not our night last night but Thomas and boys need to know we’re behind them all the way.

I was hoping to see the trophy cabinet. I asked several stewards and they just shrugged.

These attempts of turning a football match into an entertainment extravaganza is a brazen attempt to substitute what lacks on the pitch into a good evening out in order to justify the price of a ticket. Sadly, it seems to be working.

Yes Keith Lawrence our no. 5 signed by Mike Everitt sold by John Docherty.
One of his mates pointed out that he used to play for us so I asked him his name and he told me.
First thing I said was you scored at Old Trafford.
I remember a goal against Lincoln City in 1974 too.
We spoke about players from that era and my own memories etc etc plus his own.
A brief 10 minutes, but a great 600 seconds.
He did 38 years in the police force.
He asked about Peter Gilham and Stan Willis.

I remember the goal at OT having taken a sickie off work from the NatWest Chiswick. He was no Peter Gelson!

Chatting to a Grimsby fan on the tube afterwards, who laughed when I told him he smelt of rotting fish and the Tottenham fans wondered what the duck we were talking about!

Come on you spurs and when the spurs go marching in.
There is a Chas and Dave type version of the latter which would sound quite good in that stadium, but the majority of the crowd would have said Chas and Dave?
Didn't they play here in the 1970s?
Both wingers?
Yes when Hertz Van Rental was captain.
