I can't wait for tomorrow.
Been a long time coming and the last time we played at this level
it all went badly wrong. Never thought it would take so many years to get back.

Some decent clubs, grounds and towns to explore.

I like The Championship already !!

Here here. The last week has gone far too slowly, can't wait for tomorrow and the season ahead.

My week has flown by but today is dragging on.
work colleagues and clients have emailed their good luck messages,
which included a Brummie, Bolton. Gillingham, Crawley and Milwall fan.

Brentford is back on the football map !

Started going to games in the 1994/95 season apparently, first game I can remember clearly is the Crewe play off final defeat. Feels like I've been waiting all my life to watch us play in the 2nd tier, only 24 hours more to wait :)

My boss is a Millwall fan and is going to their first game tomorrow and we have been chatting about the new season all week so I think we've overdosed on Championship talk this week. Today is definitely dragging.

Incredible to think how far the club's come that now we're about to take on the 2nd tier and are very well equipped for it. It's been a long summer but the wait and all we've been through in years gone by (decades for many) will have been worth it. Going to be quite a season.

I've been talking about it most of the summer, thankful it's nearly upon us now as I'm not sure how much more I could preview the season.

I hope Blackburn win tonight... if they don't we'll drop a place in the table before we've kicked a ball!

Buzzing for tomorrow. Went to quite a few games including Bristol City away the last time we were at this level. Confident of a mid table finish this time round and who knows with a bit of good luck could we push for a play off?

Cant wait for this. Been waiting too long. Reading and Doncaster has taken a lot to get over but the wait has been worth it.

I am 19 and strangely thought Brentford would never get to the championship after the 2 play off defeats under Martin Allen, and then the relegation to league 2.
When we went up at darlo, some guy (very drunk brentford fan on the way back in the train) told me "Heeeey mate, remember days like dis, dey only come once or twice in your f***ing life". And I believed him!
Never did I think my brentford would sign a player for 1M pounds and refuse to sell another for more than 2M. I sort of got used of going to carlisle away and seeing Yeovil at home (as I only attend games during holidays) I used to pray when the fixtures came out to have an ex premier league team in my holiday fixtures like Charlton, Sheff U or Southampton and I got to see us play against all those teams. Today it's hard to spot the team who has not played in the premier league!
I'm really excited and can't wait for it all to kick off: charlton, dagenham, bournemouth, blackpool and birmingham are all in for a b***ocking, come on you reeeeds!!!

Exciting times, not previously experienced in all my time as a Bee. So hard to predict. My old, inner Bee is worried (par for the course). My new inner Bee can't ****ing wait to have a go at these teams.
Truly exciting times ahead!

Tend to agree, but Cardiff are dangerous from set pieces and corners. Both are pretty physical teams and that worries me a little. Remember watching a few Championship games last season and was amazed by the amount physical approach.

We looked pretty average at Gillingham last August. It's too early to read anything into tonight's game.

All i will say is there was an awful lot of hoof ball tonight. Im sure we will surprise a lot of teams with our style.
