Hats off as a great season comes down to the wire.

2 May

Today’s the day the Championship gets settled. Brentford fans all know the maths in regards to our game and those involving Derby County and Ipswich Town. Meanwhile, at the very top of the table Charlton are the only ones who can stop Bournemouth getting promoted although (and I apologise to Watford fans) it will be the Cherries who lift the Silverware. Plus we’ve the latest from Steve Evans at Rotherham United

To read the rest of this article, season 2014/15 is now available to download onto Kindle (and other electronic reading device) in full. Containing additional material and even some (poor) editing, you can get it here for less than the cost of a Griffin Park matchday programme or Balti Pie.

Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, I need to make more space on the site for any follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further on.

Who am I to argue??

    I first witnessed a Bees’ game in the 46/47 season when I was 5 or six years old. Aml about to close the circle and see them in the top division again?
    I watched today’s game via BEIN Sports channel here in Calgary, Canada, where I have lived for the last 47 years seeing the odd game at GP when visiting family ( Chiswick born but now dispersed across the UK.
    Your reference to Peter perhaps calling the other important scores out as the game progressed caused me to laugh. I can remember the half time ritual at GP in the forties and fifties, when a ladder was propped against the scaffold at the back of the Ealing Road terrace. An old bloke, invevitably in a flat cap and raincoat, then climbed laboriously up and applied the half time scores at other matches to the letters on the scaffold. One looked in the programme for the match corresponding to the score — big roar as QPR are down 2-0!
    How time have changed, I followed the other matches on the BBC website and saw the goals as they registered via split screen. It saved rushing home to hear the scores on Sports Report with Eamon Andrews.
    My prediction is: we go up as Toumani puts us 2-1 up in the last minute of extra time against Norwich and everybody in the stadium is on the pitch. Well this current dream is turning out just fine.
    Cheers,
    Mike

      Mike, that’s brilliant – thank you.

      Even growing up watching football in the seventies i remember the scaffolding scoreboards (and yes, raincoat or perhaps,even, a white lab coat).
      Today was incredible -and all so pressure free ( a somewhat unusual feeling for the Brentford faithful).
      I’d love for Toumani to have been on the pitch when the penalty was awarded. Likewise, I have no doubt he’ll have his moment come the inevitable trip to the W place…..
