On Roman Kemp's mega hard quiz on Capital Radio this morning, a (self confessed) Wolves fan was asked,

"Which insect is on the Brentford badge?"

He said Wasp.

Thicko.
In Kemp’s defence, when you’re the son of a millionaire pop musician who got you the job, you don’t really have to be intelligent or competent in any way… 😡

The implication is that if you've a small fan base, you aren't worthy of a place in the Premier League. Clearly the league should be based on size of fanbase and not in fact on outcomes of football matches. Funny how its always salty fans of struggling old guard clubs that make these sorts of assertions.

Why do some people think Brighton and Brentford have morphed into Brazil all of a sudden. Brentford have lost more games than us this season ffs. I think we can get something from any of the last 3 games.

Valid point we have lost 17 compared to their 16. The fact we have won 4 more than them is immaterial.

I spoke to some Southampton fans in The Griffin after the match, and they were generally unconvinced either way whether their new ownership group was good for them or not. I mentioned about Rasmus and his record/approach but they seemed unsure about their direction.

Leeds are poor, and the reason that us and Brighton appear better than them is because we're better than them. Hopefully we'll show that in two weeks.

Does that mean we also have more points than them ?..

Just looked and yes it does.

Funny, they missed that point as well.

In about 2 and a half hours, that will no longer be the case!

This absolute gem on the Watford forum.

“Brentford have been on a great run but they've been playing teams that have nothing to play for”

I can vividly remember Norwich, Burnley, Chelsea, Watford, West Ham and Spurs having nothing to play for when they played us.

The irony is Leics and Man U were the only teams we faced in this run of games with little to play for, and given we lost both that argument doesn't really hold any water (imo).

To be fair, the complete quote is:

Brentford have been on a great run but they've been playing teams that have nothing to play for, had their minds on Europe or are just plain awful (us and Norwich).

Well where I live in Philippines the small band of Euro Ex Pats here have all been following our jorney through me over the past few years and we have a bundle of lads who all have Bees as their 2nd team. A lot followed their own clubs like me back in the day before moving away. Liverpool, Rangers, Celtic, Notts County, Arsenal, West Ham, Kaiserslautern, Feynoord, Royal Antwerp to name a few. Makes me so proud of where we have come and it gives all the smaller clubs hope.

Even the full quote is nonsense.

Spurs, Burnley and Southampton weren’t affected by Europe.

Chelsea had won their 5 league games before playing us and had got through their Champions League tie against Lille during that time. After being beaten by us they smashed Southampton 6-0 which was sandwiched between their games against Real Madrid so Europe was hardly a distraction then.

It’s just another sad, deluded Hornet who’s bitter that we’re staying up and they’re not.

One of them gets it:

“That's the key for me. Chelski at home... we really need to win that one for me they are not the team they were for obvious reasons a few months back. Win that and we just may get the lift we need. I wouldn't want to be going to Brentford on the last day needing anything personally,, I think they will revel in sending us down.

👍😆

As opposed to all the teams who wouldn’t revel in sending them down.
We were just lucky to get the golden ticket 😀

"Who would of thought that our premier league future would depend on us beating..BRENTFORD. The most unpremier league club in the history of the premier league. Cannot stand that floppy haired norweigan manager thats fluked his way through the 2nd half of the season by signing erikssen on mates rates. How is it allowed that a world class player signs for such a small sh*tty club. They should be going down not us but that does not fit the agenda. The FA want us in the championship cause we are the big draw in that league."

You've got to feel for them. Why can't any of you people see THE AGENDA against Leeds !🤡🤡

Nationality isn’t this guys best subject is it. And why should we be going down, not them :unsure:. I feel sad for these self entitled pricks. It will be an absolute pleasure to witness our boys sending his team down to the Championship. In a few weeks🙏 he will be saying why are we playing teams like Rotherham:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

The most amusing part of that thread is that so many of their deluded fans actually think they have a chance of staying up! I suspect they'll already be relegated before we even play them.

I quite like reading other club's
message boards for the world-weary, honest, approach so many seem to have, but reading the Leeds boards there seems to be epic levels of self-delusion at play here. It's all rather hilarious.
