The absolute clown saying that is a Yank who ‘supports’ Man Utd.

The Amazon river runs for thousands of miles. At some point it runs through areas of the rain forest that are almost untouched and barely explored. Because of the porous limestone in these areas, the river water leaks through the stone and travels deep into the earth and forms underground pools almost a mile below the surface. Over thousands of years, small blind, transparent fish have lived and evolved in these pools. These fish have never seen the sun or surface and have never been seen by the human eye. These fish care more about the opinion of a Yank who ‘supports’ Man Utd than I do.

Sorry to be clear - Are these fish Fulscum or RaRa's? Or varies from pool to pool?

Although to be fair pretty much everyone else in the last two pages of that thread was very complimentary towards us, several pretty knowledgeable and he was put straight (one pointing out most here would have known we just missed out last season). Turns out he’s from the US and just not up on the lower leagues.

Yup, but guess what, lots of Prem "fans" are Yanks or Thai or Nigerian or whatever. There will be LOADS of this on forums and social media for a fair while.

Some fair and some ridiculous comments from Bournemouth here:

“Mbeumo dive” for the penalty apparently!

"I'm incredibly bitter watching this"

Probably better if they hadn't watched then.

Decided to plough through other Premier League Forum's to see what they are saying.

Some nice comments on Arsenal Mania, mostly concerning the game yesterday.

Has anyone else's dislike of Swansea sort of melted away? I have no desire to check their forum really when I thought I would after the game. All the tension has gone out of our rivalry IMO.
I said a while back the main problem was that the stuff we hated about them was the stuff their own fans hated about them but just didn’t like being told by a rival. Reading their match thread, apart from a few who were still banging on about Frank, that is borne out. They knew how limited and unadventurous they’d become, how Cooper’s style was far from what they had built in their previous rise, how reliant on loans, how little their owners had cared or invested in the squad and that we were basically just better all round, especially on the day. But it’s like all the little and big irritants your wife might have. You know them, you know how it feels when she’s loaded the dishwasher all wrong again. But if someone you aren’t great mates with says to you in the pub “LOL your wife’s an absolute effing nightmare” you’ll go ballistic.

Wasn't that the same reaction we had from clubs in the Championship when we came up from L1.

Villa Talk, had a thread on us for a couple of years, and we get accused of being obsessed.

"I know some folk don’t agree with me but clubs like Brentford, Bournemouth, Wigan, Reading etc don’t belong in the top flight. They offer nothing beyond existing to survive. I know we would probably be the same but we would contribute more in terms of the away day for other fans, the history and nostalgia."

Yes, Nottingham Forest are terrible to watch and rubbish, but it would be better if they were in the PL than us because everyone could sit around remembering Brian Clough, and that one time in their history they weren't bang average. We need to introduce nostalgia points immediately. Deluded muppet.

Truly shocking. The irony of calling us arrogant is beyond belief. I hope they go bust

I’m torn on Brentford. In theory they deserve to go up, it’s their time, but it’s a two bob London club that make Fulham look like Real Madrid in terms of size.

I mean, for example where would you rather go, Dean Court or the Stadium of Light, the Madjeski or Hillsborough?

They’re just tin pot clubs with tin pot grounds. I suppose it doesn’t matter watching on Sky though

Ah, bless them. So sweet. Whilst we’re playing Liverpool or Man City next season in the Premiership, the supporters of ‘sleeping giants’ Forest will be sat in their underwear on the sofa, watching their Betamax tapes of the highlights of their season forty years ago.

So sad :)

The irony is the "history" he values is all about being a smaller club upsetting the big boys, which is what Forest used to be about. All of a sudden now they find the idea upsetting. Funny that.

Nor do Forest with their dire football of ages now.

Someone needs to remind these other fans that having been in the top flight does not actually mean anything for the future, particularly those that are badly managed by dubious owners who also think that a dusty trophy cabinet wins matches... ask any Northampton Town fan...

All my Championship supporting mates were very supportive at FT. People who are objective and non-biased understand that the brentford model is the best route to success if you don't have a billionaire owner or state owned funds .... lots of jealousy in those threads..

Not really, I am watching the highlights for 5th time and they are still ****s.

Fans and club are OK, it’s the manager and the style he plays.

He was saying he thought the ref was doing us all the favours. Deluded,I thought they got most 50/50 decision, about 5-6 stone walls yellows and a red no given.

The red card was probably an unfortunate slip but it was out of control and dangerous so always a red. Ayew elbows raya and the ball hits the bar, the goal would have been given, that is a tactic they use to attack the keeper and get away with it just like the shirt pulling at corners.

Once we got two they were never going to get three because a team set up to cheat and illegally stop better teams play and grab a goal from bundled free kick are not going to get three.

Having a billionaire owner has helped us quite A bit though. We might do things the right way but wouldn’t have done it without MB’s 150m odd input.

Think you'll do at least OK in the PL. I like Brentford F.C. b/c I met my (American) wife on Brentford station, 1985. Lived in Twickenham then and went to Griffin Park a few times. Been far away across the ocean these past 30+ years, back home to see family the past month (worth the ten days isolation.) You'll forgive me only just noticing the play-off score, been somewhat preoccupied and drowning in disappointment after my 24 hour round--trip between Manchester and Porto. (It's 22 years since City won their play-off final against Gillingham so perhaps in 2043 it'll be Brentford v. Atletico Bilbao or some such in another CL final.)

After Cooper went to Thomas just before the end & shook his hand my hatred for him & Swansea did wain, I even went on their forum & contemplated telling them that next year might be their turn as they played (or didn't) like us last year but "Christ" after reading a few of their moronic comments normal service was resumed - they are a bunch of Knobs.

That gillingham team had 11 ex Brentford players in it that lost in the play off's with Brentford the year before. They went up the year after.

They've got no chance. Ayew will be off.. All the loans will go back, no more parachute payments, 2 big teams (and Fulham) coming back down, all with cash to spend. Going to be a long hard season for them I think..

And Muff will be stronger with parachute payments left.

Got chatting to some Swans fans in the pub we ended up in after the game last night in Ealing. They'd been to the game and were staying over. (Not sure why Ealing??!!!).
They were OK, but kept dropping in little digs about Thomas Frank, the fact that Ivan would be off, and look them up again when we'd had 7 years in the PL like they had, and had won a major trophy........
In fact, on reflection, they were a bunch of c***s, just like 99% of their fan base seem to be.....

Feel that Premier League could become a closed shop of sorts as this year was predictable that WBA and Fulham would get relegated and that the Top 5 of Championship would consist of the three relegated sides us and maybe Swansea. Thats as it turned out..in fact if Bournemouth didnt have that dodgy spell under Tindall they may well have gone up instead of Watford and I wouldn't have wanted to play Watford in the Final.
This year I think the Top of the Championship will be the three relegated sides and Bournemouth.... and I actually dont think the three relegated sides are that good but who else will challenge them , Barnsley?

Maybe we can send them some b teamers on loan to improve them.

Loved their attitude when they signed our "best 3 players" and they thought they had ended us. Look now f***ers
Have still been reading in the past few weeks posts saying how we're their "feeder club".......🤣🤣🤣🤣

Hang on a minute, "Swansea"?

Place? Foodstuff? Medical condition? Type of Waterfowl? Word to describe someone looking extra pale perhaps?

No, I might have heard of it/them/they, but for the life of me, I just can't place it..

Oh well, I'm sure it's not important.
