Obviously i work with all Southampton fans, they were all willing us to win the playoffs and when we won, were made up for me, saying we would be a breath of fresh air in the Prem and a better version of them with our recruitment.

I am getting this from a lot of people, utterly delighted for us but then go on to say we should just sit back and enjoy the experience, we will get a few tonkings along the way but might have a few good days out before it’s all over.

I usually burst out laughing and say thank you for your kind thoughts but I guarantee little old loveable Brentford will be arrogant smug Brentford next year and you will be sick of the sight of us.

Yesterday I was asked what I thought our % chance of staying up was, I said 100, you should be more interested in the % chance of us making it into Europe,

Looks interesting, if only I had a subscription to The Athletic...


It's a very interesting article but to be fair to The Athletic, I can't re-produce it here. Incidentally, in the comments section someone asks if this is the start of regular Brentford articles like all other PL clubs and they confirmed they have a Brentford writer joining next week.

Might be worth subscribing. It used to seem like a Norwich fanzine (no I’m not much interested in their reserve team games).

Yes I guess that would qualify opposing fans to call us arrogant.

This made me chuckle from a celtic blog comment....

"Champions’ League clubs losing players to the English equivalent of Stenhousemuir…ever get the feeling you’re being cheated? That your overpriced monthly TV subscription to English broadcasters allows English clubs to pick the pockets of the rest of Europe? Oh aye, I forgot, it’s the Best League In The World (c). Denizens across the planet are queuing up to watch Brentford v Watford, Brighton v Burnley and Norwich v Wolverhampton"

:p

Shame he chose that comparison. "We're the Stenhousemuir... of the Premier League" doesn't really scan. Stirling Albion, mind you... 😁

To be fair to Celtic supporters. Most of them think we’re a good club for him, we’ve done well as a club and some even say we’re better run than Celtic. A few take the piss, but I guess that’s fair enough.

Celtic are the Norma Desmond of Football:

Joe: "You're Norma Desmond. You used to be in silent pictures. You used to be big."

Norma: "I am big. It's the pictures that got small."

Don’t do twitter but if I did my response would be.
‘Thanks so much for your complete lack of knowledge and respect for arguably the most impressive story of the last decade of a club taking smart investment, smart decisions and smart risks to climb the football pyramid whilst maintaining proper values and humility’
Or, alternatively, go f*ck yourself up your own kilt, you ignorant, arrogant, deluded, Scottish c*nt.

I think your initial thoughts may be the best to further enhance Celtic - Stenhousemuir relations.

He/she probably chose sTENhousemuir as '10' is a deeply significant number to a Celtic supporter, or was until they fluffed their lines last season.

Any Scottish clubs out there with the sequential letters 'nine' in their name?

I can almost taste the frustration from that piece. Imagine each season being a groundhog day where every game you win is like beating your kids in an inter-garden championship.
