Being treated by a Watford supporting customer in the hospitality suite and chatting to Luther Blissett for 15 mins, what a gent and a legend.

At the total opposite end of the spectrum was the pre and after match talk from Tommy Mooney and Tommy Smith.
Smith was complimentary but Mooney is so bitter.
pre match he said that our defence was our weak point and made up of players barely good enough for the Championship, let alone the Prem.
After, he said we were lucky and they were the better side.

Being the only Bees supporter celebrating the winner in the upper Graham Taylor stand. That's Mooney's fault, I would have been subtle if it wasn't for him.
I thought somebody might take a swipe as they filed past me at the end! :)
Love that,I’m all for sitting on hands and being respectful but when comments and bitterness like that come out I’m with u give it the large one 😂

this one really is the best though, 44 bloody years of my life living 8 miles from Watford (my mum even had the cheek to birth me right next door at Watford General !), never seen us win there, and never been in a higher division. This is the year that all changes, I will be wearing my BFC shirts everywhere I go for the next few weeks to hopefully annoy as many of them as I can !!
Born on Vicarage Road mate. You kept that one quiet! RIP your mentions. 😂

Following on from the Watford win, this London derbies Premier League table is interesting -
Currently we are 2nd out of the 7 named clubs as being in the London region.

Watford must be looking forward to not having so many London derbies in the Championship!

Letting out a loud scream as I left the stadium - Yet again I sat in the home end on my own feeling disappointed that there were half a dozen empty seats in the bottom corner of the away end and wondering if this past time should end soon. West Ham away - sat in home end, Chelsea away - stood in home end. Watford away ....It's a very weird experience trust me. Not really sure if it really is better than missing out all together when events such as last minute goals mean you just sit there with a huge grin on your face (behind a mask) feeling disappointed that you're not going mental like everyone else a few feet away. Met up with a Watford fan I haven't seen for a few years and had a pint after was nice though. Nice stadium I thought too (first time I've been there).

Wow, I really didn't realise the level of angst - especially amongst the older lot - towards all things Watford, held by a section of your support. Some seem to see us as their 'deadly rivals', seemingly stretching back for decades. I can assure you it isn't reciprocated, for us its always been Luton, with QPR coming a distant second. Back in the day (the 70s,) our handful of trips to Griffin Park were just another jolly for a beer & a tear up. It was no big deal, just another away day - though it seems to have been a traumatic experience for some on here. Our young 'uns having a few scuffles at your place earlier on this season seems to have initiated an attempted revenge mission, yesterday. A large group gentlemen - most of whom were the wrong side of forty - wandered around Watford after the game, desperate for trouble with the locals. When they eventually found their 'quarry' at a boozer in Market St, they promptly came unstuck (I hope the fella with the broken nose, gets well soon). Here's a thing, its customary to fight back when you've started a row, not walk backwards, taking shots! If you want trouble when you come to Watford - you'll soon find it. Having been saved from even worse, by some of our older fans who - ironically - used to dish it out, including at your place, back in the 70s, they were allowed on there way. So, Watford getting relegated will put your big 'derby day' on hold, once more. To finish ....... Well done Brentford - you've got a good manager, fine team, play some good football, dunno about that weird new 'stadium' (GP, far better) and deserve another year, at least, in the EPL. But our deadly rivals, you are not!

With one of my sons I ve done both West Ham ( Billy Bonds Stand) very quite during the game, but had to give it big when WISSA scored . I explained to the guys around me they were ok.
Again with my son we did the Spurs game right on half way line behind dug outs , had a decent chat at halftime which a guy who realised we were Bees . To me you have to be quite and respectful of where you are

Two thing that got me at Spurs , how animated and involved Conte gets , having the 4 th Official explaining how was legal for Goodes foot to break the line with his throws ons Second was the long walk back to I think it was Seven Sisters Tube

Surprised to hear that
Had a pleasant time in Watford, before and after the game, with no sign of any bother
I guess those that look for trouble will eventually find it. Silly sausages
I will look for the broken nose on Saturday

Yeah, ok twaat, we’ll miss the 6 points next season but not much more, adios. Being brought up in W12 I can say with total truth that QPR don’t have you on their radar, I was taken by a Watford neighbour at 11 years of age to VR for night game v QPR, 4 nil home win but we had real trouble trying to get back to the car as the Bush boys caused carnage.
You need Deeney back sharpish mate.

Hey guys.

Watford fan in peace.

Firstly, congratulations on having a fantastic first season in the PL. You have stuck to your guns throughout and been very hard to beat. Your win at Chelsea was unexpected to say the least, and beating Arsenal on day one was quite a feat. Ivan Toney is a talent that you will need to keep hold of, as well as your manager. You have a togetherness that Watford have lacked since 18/19.

When Watford were promoted to the PL in 14/15 under who we call "QSF", we had a very similar structure to what you have now. Young, hungry players who want to play for the club and play for the shirt, the fans and the club. Scoring lots of goals and enjoying out football in England' elite division. We didn't really suffer the dreaded "second season syndrome" as Sheff Utd did a few seasons back, although we did finish 17th we were well clear before we tailed off.

You deservedly beat us in both games, and we deserved nothing more than relegation. But not just because you beat us last Saturday, we have been in a downward spiral for a long time, and we are a perfect example of how a CEO and Owner should not run a football club. Most of our players are in their early to mid thirties in the twilight of their careers. Hence, they have lost the passion for the sport the once loved. Sarr is our star man, but he will go in the Summer, we all know that. It might be a while before we play each other again, so I guess this is a personal goodbye from one fan to another. We will probably be faves to go straight back up, but with most of our core squad going to be gutted (as with most relegated sides), what we will have left will not be enough to compete for the top six all season long. We need a total reset and rebuild, something Watford fans' have been crying out for, for a long time now.

Anyway, to close can I just say well done again on your season. You had a bad patch as expected and came through it. Not team deserves to stay in the PL when they lose TEN consecutive home games. Best of luck next season and try to keep your heads above water. One more thing, if Luton go up, please help them out in sending them back down.

Regards

If Luton go up I can assure you that they're going straight back down again 😅

A Watford fan on Twitter a month or two ago said that 'we used to have quite an innovative approach to signings, but now everyone does it and we haven't evolved our ideas on at all'. I can see you coming back up again though.

And yes, some older fans have a strong dislike for Watford, in that they have a strong dislike for Birmingham as well. As a younger fan (well, 34) I've never felt it myself. I'm glad i wasn't around in 70's football support to be honest!

Why would I not be? Nothing to begrudge over - it's just another game we failed to turn up in and missed chances a six year old would of scored. Fan's are sick of it - and the blame starts from the top of the club who refuse to address the problems in the side fans' have seen for years now.

Ok calm down or you’ll get some back, typical away fan, all nicely nicely and then the above outpouring of hatred follows.

I'm a bit concerned that we don't have some song lyrics painted all over our stadium. Gram Parsons must be disappointed.
I did chuckle, the lyrics to Your Song? Saturday nights all right for fighting or Sorry seems to be the hardest word might have been more appropriate

:imwith:

It didn't feel a particularly threatening environment. As previously stated, I was in the Graham Taylor stand and walking out after the game there was disappointment and resignation, which could have built into a threatening atmosphere as we passed the exit where our fans were coming out, but everyone seemed to mingle peacefully. I know football's tribal and all that, and as Billy says, there will always be silly sausages in all teams' fans.

Nothing hatred at all. I am not here to cause an argument with anyone. You beat us, fair game. Had it ended 1-1 it would of been the same result in our season overall. Like I said in my OP, I thought you have played well throughout the season. Nothing wrong with being honest, and perhaps one day we will be on level pegging again. For now, enjoy your time in the Sun. Because as I am sure you know, things can change very quickly - and you need to prepare in advance for when/if that arrives.

It's a little bit funny, seeing Watford slide,
They're one of those clubs now, who it's easy to deride,
They had lots of money, but spent it on dross,
And change their head coach, every time they have a loss.

And they can tell everybody, they used to be good,
Since Elton and Graham Taylor, they've done nothing at all,
I hope they don't, mind, I hope they don't mind,
That the Bees sent them down,
How wonderful life is, playing Luton at home.

A silly sausage Bee I know was texting me the details of his group’s victory afterwards, gotta say I take what he said and the Watford div’s summary as being pathetic, I doubt either versions are true and there is no glory in smashing someone before, during or afterwards as the ones that usually get walloped are the ones enjoying their day and not remotely looking for anything. Just a trophy to a sad so and so.

We are just a bus stop in Hounslow, have been to League 2 and back and have no pretensions about the future. We are living a dream that most of us thought wouldn’t happen in our lifetimes. It might be two seasons it might be many more. But we are Brentford FC.

Hope you enjoy your rebuild.

That's one thing that most fans of English league clubs can't understand about Brentford – the owner and his management team. There's a medium term and long-term plan, that has multiple scenarios and is continuously adjusted, guided by a scientific statistical approach. There's no short-term action, hence the faith in the head coach through a losing streak because the underlying statistics remain positive.

We can be sure that there is a relegation scenario, just as we can be sure there's a Champions League scenario that is supported by relocation to a new stadium with an appropriate capacity... but only when there is a statistical probability of an extended run of European football.

No sh*t Sherlock things can change quickly.
We have spent all but 10 of my 53 years of watching Bees rummaging around the basement or third tier.
Most if not all Bees of a certain age are still pinching themselves and ever since we got into the play offs the season we got in to the Championship in 2014, believing it would be another one season wonder like 1992/93.
We more than anyone have been programmed for disappointment and heartache and every season at this level is a huge bonus.
Your club reminds me of a spoilt brat who is used to asking and getting whatever he wants for his birthday with expensive toys but is still unhappy and keeps on wanting to change for something better as they don’t go well together but can’t ever find what he wants so throws them all in the bin and sulks until just before his next birthday and repeats. Sham of a club

Wow, I really didn't realise the level of angst - especially amongst the older lot - towards all things Watford, held by a section of your support. Some seem to see us as their 'deadly rivals', seemingly stretching back for decades. I can assure you it isn't reciprocated, for us its always been Luton, with QPR coming a distant second. Back in the day (the 70s,) our handful of trips to Griffin Park were just another jolly for a beer & a tear up. It was no big deal, just another away day - though it seems to have been a traumatic experience for some on here. Our young 'uns having a few scuffles at your place earlier on this season seems to have initiated an attempted revenge mission, yesterday. A large group gentlemen - most of whom were the wrong side of forty - wandered around Watford after the game, desperate for trouble with the locals.

But our deadly rivals, you are not!
Blimey, Bogsider! Never have I seen a post on the GPG in which the written words were so comprehensively undermined by the sentiment behind them, and yes, I do understand irony.

If I've got this right, what you were saying is: Brentford are an irrelevance and your Dad is bigger than my Dad? Correct me if I'm wrong.

My first local derby was Bees v Watford in November (?) 75, Terry scales scoring the winner. I was taken by the new experience of a mass of away fans, heightened atmosphere and resultant restrictions. Of course I despised Watford, I had nothing else to gauge it by. Note the past tense.

Over time Fulham and QPR hove into view. You and your ilk will have to attend a lot of despicability training classes to overtake those two. At least we agree on something re QPR.

Oh, and by the way, as I get older I've only got so much hate to go around. Sorry to break it to you, old fruit: Watford are an irrelevance to me and most that I know. Would you be consoled if I told you The 'Orns were a minor irritation? Hope so.

Perhaps you should get together with @SkylaRose, who has also contributed to this forum. Unless I'm being led up the garden path they seem to be a genuine and humble person, and you could learn a thing or two from them. Perhaps you could get together some time and have a pint, though I doubt they'd drink as much bitter as you.

And for what it's worth, as a long standing Brentford fan, I take NOTHING for granted.

Surprised to hear that
Had a pleasant time in Watford, before and after the game, with no sign of any bother
I guess those that look for trouble will eventually find it. Silly sausages
I will look for the broken nose on Saturday
And probably not find it mate because I imagine most of what this visitor describes only happened in his head.

Wow, I really didn't realise the level of angst - especially amongst the older lot - towards all things Watford, held by a section of your support. Some seem to see us as their 'deadly rivals', seemingly stretching back for decades. I can assure you it isn't reciprocated, for us its always been Luton, with QPR coming a distant second. Back in the day (the 70s,) our handful of trips to Griffin Park were just another jolly for a beer & a tear up. It was no big deal, just another away day - though it seems to have been a traumatic experience for some on here. Our young 'uns having a few scuffles at your place earlier on this season seems to have initiated an attempted revenge mission, yesterday. A large group gentlemen - most of whom were the wrong side of forty - wandered around Watford after the game, desperate for trouble with the locals. When they eventually found their 'quarry' at a boozer in Market St, they promptly came unstuck (I hope the fella with the broken nose, gets well soon). Here's a thing, its customary to fight back when you've started a row, not walk backwards, taking shots! If you want trouble when you come to Watford - you'll soon find it. Having been saved from even worse, by some of our older fans who - ironically - used to dish it out, including at your place, back in the 70s, they were allowed on there way. So, Watford getting relegated will put your big 'derby day' on hold, once more. To finish ....... Well done Brentford - you've got a good manager, fine team, play some good football, dunno about that weird new 'stadium' (GP, far better) and deserve another year, at least, in the EPL. But our deadly rivals, you are not!

So far Skylar has come on and congratulated us. Yes i know most go on to change that approach but maybe sometimes we should not turn it into a self fullfilling prophecy but provoking them.
If you mean me buster, then I’m taking the urine at the weird “come in peace” message. Never got the need to announce one’s intentions of avoiding war on a message board.

Tell us something we don’t know? Of course you don’t give a f***. That’s not the point. I don’t either but the beer belly crew do. Leave them to it.

Posting on other clubs' message boards is the most cringey thing ever. Especially when it is practically an essay. It reeks of thin skinned neediness and no declarations of peace or stock conpliments can make it seem less pathetic.

Especially to tell us it’s our cup final, they beat us up and that they don’t care about us, weird bloke, I have a vision of what he looks like and what time his mummy calls him for dinner.

Mummy is 83, his name is Brian and he's on the PC in his darkened room with the crusty carpet, trousers round his knees like most days of his life.

What’s with the Brianophobia? There were a couple of Brians on fb complaining they’d been kicked off here.

Letting out a loud scream as I left the stadium - Yet again I sat in the home end on my own feeling disappointed that there were half a dozen empty seats in the bottom corner of the away end and wondering if this past time should end soon. West Ham away - sat in home end, Chelsea away - stood in home end. Watford away ....It's a very weird experience trust me. Not really sure if it really is better than missing out all together when events such as last minute goals mean you just sit there with a huge grin on your face (behind a mask) feeling disappointed that you're not going mental like everyone else a few feet away. Met up with a Watford fan I haven't seen for a few years and had a pint after was nice though. Nice stadium I thought too (first time I've been there).
Not sure they were spare. More that their owners had camped elsewhere in the away end next to mates/family. Stewards weren’t bothered about overcrowding.

Nice to see at least some of you can respect a fan of a different team genuinely saying well done on a successful season. I did not expect such intimidation from a select few, if that's what honesty is worth around here.

If that’s intimidation then your days of being a top lad are over, my friend. Remember, no one likes a smart arse.
