Ramsey’s treat as the neighbours take a tumble

11 May

Thank you Manchester City. What more can you say after they condemned Queens Park Rangers to an immediate return to the Championship on Sunday lunchtime? And how! We’ll get to the latest from Brentford shortly (where ‘official twitter’ is at it again) but we can only start with events at the Ethiad as City confirmed that the first of next season’s West London derbies will be an all Championship affair between Fulham and QPR after City beat the Loftus Road outfit 6-0.

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.

    Death to those lame hashtags, can’t bear them.

    One of the great things about Friday’s game at GP was that it was noisy and boisterous, a proper old ground rocking on all 4 sides – I truly hope we can keep GP like this until the end – and then try to create something decent at LR. I’d hate for the marketeers to mess with it, and BFC, should we go up, or in attempts to progress.

    Roll on Friday – we really can do it, and even if we don’t it can’t be routine can it? That’s not the BFC way.

    Regardless if you can go please do, this brilliant manager and team deserve it!

    I agree on the hashtag nonsense. As someone who has worked in marketing, the point of the hashtag is to create a ‘buzz’, Brentford’s attempts just cause embarrassment. In fact having a quick look, other than the club, the # has only been used twice. Most supporters are keeping well away!

    Please Mr Benham & Mr Devlin, can we look at our comms too this summer. Make it more Premier than Vanarama. The silly hashtags of course come no where near the ‘football is a village’ press release disaster.

    Also Mr Devlin chastised 1 or 2 supporters on Twitter for affectionately describing the Bournemouth game as the Tinpot Derby. He didnt like the tinpot tag, which was understandable. Others pointed out it was a way that ourselves and Muff supporters were pointing out to the bigger teams that underestimating us is a dangerous thing. But alas today, even our own Comms department did not hear of Mr D’s displeasure, and have tweeted that the season ticket holder who will be going to Boro for free will be seeing ‘Little Old Brentford’. Im sure Mr D will not be pleased when he sees it!

      Thank you Bernard. As erudite as ever.

      Granted – i’m all for us being a bit more relaxed/ trying to show a sense of humour but you have to get it right. The margin between nailing the humour and missing the target by a country mile is a fine one.
      And when we miss…..

    #BigNewAmbitions…I’m glad that one appears to have been kicked into touch.
