Proper confused by how this draw works. How do we know we'll be drawn at home?

Cracking Tuesday night entertainment. That winning feeling is back and breeds confidence amongst both players and fans.

A great result and unexpected bonus, this cup run. With just half our first choice side starting.

And the bonus of coming from behind twice - very un-Brentford.

The only downside is that we are clearly better than WBA and should have finished above them. They are going down with fewer than 20 points.

Don't look for downside. Enjoy the moment. We're not interested in West Bromwich Albion. Forget "The Lord is my Shepherd". Think more, "Onward Christian Nergoorde". :ROFLMAO:

Phew, what a game. not as composed as v Saints. We gave away too many chances to them, including two pens. Defence looked a bit shakey. Fosu and Baptiste not as good either. Need more confidence. Thought Zamburek was invisible, sadly, as I rate him. Marcondes, Raya, Henry were class. Once Norgaard and DaSilva came on, they couldn't cope with them.

Great goal by EM and well won in their area. Nice pass for Forss to win our penalty. Then five consummate pens by us and poor one by Diangana which Raya batted away contemptuously. :bounce:

We were drawn at home - when the draw was made last week. West Brom or Brentford will play Fulham or Sheffield Wednesday

Liverpool at present
Thought their second penalty was dead soft and Forss, said “eh oop! I’ll have one of them!”
Some serious mistakes in play, particularly at the back. Gives the coaches a chance to make the most of this cup run though.

NOT counting chickens etc but the Final is on 2 February 2021.

Five months away.

Bees get to Wembley - and there are STLL no fans allowed in.

"It's Brentford innit..."
Also not counting chickens but the Europa Conference League looks tailor made for our B team.

Both previous LC 4th round ties were away (Forest in the Clough years and Brum), so first bit of night-time history at BCS ;)
City ground, Keith Bowen, eight feet away from me with an open goal, heads it over the bar. Cloughy slagging off Bowlsey in the programme. It's like yesterday. Winning at 1st Division Swansea in the replay the round before, one of my happiest ever Beedays. ❤❤❤

Was wondering after the Saints and WBA wins. Is this the first time we’ve caused upsets by beating two Top Division sides in the same cup run? Obviously not happened in my time watching (since 67). Interesting thought.

I go back to the mid 1950’s and can’t remember any before your date

I remember the Forest away game. Went up by car, loads went by special train, must have had about 2000 there on a Tues or Wed night. Remember we were 2-0 down and Dave Hayward (legend) stood on the fence encouraging the Bees fans to sing their hearts out.

I remember that night. Bees fans giving John Robertson lots of stick, calling him fatty fatty
that ginger haired Scotttish fella Ian Wallace scoring at least one, maybe both. Plenty of Bees as you say.
