They’re the Brentford FC, of… La Liga

20 Jan

It can happen to the best of us.

Our popular terrace chant may refer to the boys from Griffin Park as ‘The Barcelona of the Lower Leagues’, but this weekend the roles were reversed.

To read the rest of this article, season 2013/14 is now available to download onto Kindle, in full. Containing previously unseen content, you can do so here for less than the cost of one matchday programme.

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.

    Core blimey, that article isn’t in the slightest bit arrogant is it! You were generally 2nd best to a team that played better football than you throughout, a team who were 6th in the league prior to kick off with the 2nd best defensive record in the division. A team who haven’t spent a single £ on a transfer fee since 2005 when they spent a whopping £4k on a non-league striker… A bit of humility wouldn’t go amiss I don’t think.

      Thanks for your comment .

      I can sympathise where you are coming from but, ultimately, this is a piece about both a great run that Brentford have been on – and a club song we’ve sung for years.

      I don’t think there are too many people – myself included (see previous article) – who’d fail to recognise what Walsall have done.
      However , this piece was not about them in particular and I’ll not apologise for bigging up my team in my blog. 

      Success is a rare thing at Griffin Park and it has taken four years for this team to come together as it now has. As such, should we have a highlight like this then, yes, I’m going to get excited by it.
