Met 3 decent Burnley fans in Black Dog prematch - had good 30 min conversation with them which turned out to be ironic as one of them was telling us we wouldn't get a penalty and they had the least red cards in PL in x number of years. How to ruin that stat in one foul swoop....

This is rather odd logic. It appears that having a couple of players fit now after the season we've had, is considered "a bit jammy". :confused:

I have to admit, I had a chuckle reading the "Brentford fans are w@nk" quote 🤣🤣🤣
:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
No mirrors in Burnley, then? And the Self Awareness classes that used to run in the basement of the local Zorastrian Church don't have been withdrawn due to lack of punters.

Poor loves. Be sure to give our regards to Rangers, won't you?

I am genuinely mystified by how so many opposition fans even of clubs we have no particular history or beef with seem to loathe TF.
Had to laugh at the poster who said he hates Brentford because they wouldn't sell him a ticket and told him to buy a membership.

That Foxes Talk is pretty funny. They were banging on about Brentford being nailed on for bottom three next season then the Man Utd v Spurs game started and they were all rupturing themselves laughing at Maguire's own goal. "Slabhead OG!".

Norwich City messageboard , thread on us and beating Burnley:

What cobblers. Toney is sh*te, 😂😂😂😂
Like all the prem clubs, they like little old “breath of fresh air” Brentford until we beat them
At 10 seconds his lip actually starts quivering.


That is very funny.

Ladies and gents, enjoy the bitter rants of teams we’ve beaten. If we were bottom and losing every week we’d be everyone’s second favourite team and a breath of fresh air but not here next season
This is definitely not how Everton, Leeds, Burnley or Norwich imagined the season going back in August. We were supposed to be down by now.

Some angry Burnley chaps were bowling around Brentford on Saturday evening.
I saw one fella being shoved face down in a muddy verge by the Plod and a few others being
detained. I got a load of verbal by one of them in the Offy next to Albany Spice.
Lots of them hanging around. Bitter Norverners!!

While waiting for the 237, decided to bus it on Saturday, rather than car, and saw plenty of OB running away from Kew Bridge towards Ealing Road.

Just listened to Talksport, they were talking about our Burnley game with Neil Warnock. He was of the opinion that Burnley should have won and can’t understand why they didn’t. He’s obviously not looked at the stats for the game. 45% possession against our 55%. 7 shots with only 1 on target to our 13 shots 4 on target. They certainly beat us on the fouls and corner stats, but they don’t win you games. What a 🤡

Yes we saw a few pissed/coked up Burnley youngsters wandering in the road near the Premier Inn. Lots of random abuse etc. They seemed a bit lost really

It’s the whole package of TF.

He looks different to the typical football manager
He talks like a well educated adult as opposed to a cliche riddled div
He gives honest answers to questions
He, without any effort whatsoever gets under the skin of every opposition fan.
He’s coached a small club with a tiny budget to the PL and will keep us up

It’s jealousy. Plain and simple.
TF is also quite bullish in interviews rather than going for the old cliches and saying little of interest. It comes across as arrogant to some when we win and delusional when we lose.
It is hardly the darkest of mind games though and if it upsets fans of other teams that is fine by me.

I personally think it is natural to compare against the teams that came up with you. I did got a few seasons looking out for Wolves and Rotherham results. I sense there is a lot of frustration within their fam base as they obviously haven’t learnt from lessons in previous seasons and had a bigger window than us to get players in. They are just a club who have been too good for the championship but cack for the PL. I would hate to be a yo yo team like them and Fulham.
Funny you mention Wolves in 2014/15, their fans were never better value than that season. They got promoted with us with 103 points and thought we were probably lucky to be kissing their palms in the division above. Beat them 4-0 and and then robbed them of their "their spot" in the 2015 play offs (and Derby's) on the last day. They couldn't believe that little old Brentford had burgled them.

Some difficult Burnley fans hanging around near the Black Dog, post match, the landlord was intermittently keeping the door bolted to keep a noisy group of them away.

We made up for it with Wolves, I think, when we confirmed their promotion to the Prem with Neal Maupay's last minute equaliser at Craven Cottage (of blessed memory!)

Good memory. I'm sure some of them remember that, but that promotion was hardly on a knife edge nor did it do us any harm at that point.

Probably why it took my bus so long to get through there.

A coach load of lively looking Burnley blokes stopped by the Black Dog but were turned away by a large police presence. An odd choice of pub if they were looking for a ruck. Perhaps they were all craft beer aficionados with a liking for gastropub dining. Or they remembered the Albany as of old.

43:55+, with a non-entity called ‘Benji Lanyado’ saying Saturday’s game was awful - based on what he heard on the radio….. 😐

CAUTION: Unacceptably high salt content. May cause hilarity. Approach with caution.

The clearest red card and penalty ever seen, the bloke shoves Toney from behind with his forearm, he doesn't even attempt to get out of it, he knows he is off.

Tierney should have given jugs two yellows so they should have been down to 10 at 0.0, how is that biased to us?

TF knows exactly how to get under peoples skin, one day he will be somewhere else and we will all see it :ROFLMAO:

Shock horror, bitter football fans after an away loss.

We are all like it. Last time I wasn’t bitter after an away loss would prob be Boro in the PO semi final. They blew us away on and off the pitch.
