Bees up, Fulham down ! Brentford celebrate like we’ve won the FA Cup.

4 May

Russell Slade and Leyton Orient – Thank you. What began as a, seemingly, off the cup (sorry, cuff) comment made with a mouthful of sour grapes culminated in Griffin Park being transformed into a sea of Slade embossed FA cups yesterday as Brentford finally left League One.

Yes – we did celebrate when we won against strong opponents at Leyton Orient . I make no apologies for that. They were promotion rivals and their record demanded respect. However, that was nothing compared to yesterday.

Brentford were in celebratory mood all day long – fans, club officials and players alike.

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.
