Great work, all round, from the Brentford FC family

27 Jul

Fresh from the win over Stoke City on Saturday, the excitement levels amongst Brentford fans have cranked up another level with the arrival of season tickets and membership packs. And it has to be said they are nothing but impressive with congratulations due to all concerned! This really is an effort of Premier League levels!

We’ll get on to all of that along with a few other mentions in a moment but, first, the other stuff from the Stoke City game.

Stuart Dallas and his wonder strike for the second goal. Watching it again on the YouTube highlights I couldn’t help but have my eye drawn to something in the crowd. Had somebody lost a bet? Are things that bad up the road that they are fleeing the sinking ship like rats? Or was it simply a sartorial ‘faux pas’ that was realised only once en-route to Griffin Park?

    So talk of the PA system on Ealing Rd being improved was not just a rumour. So no longer will everyone be saying to each other ‘Who is that grey haired old man waving at us?’ reminding me of the 1970s Public Information Film with Jo & Petunia on the clifftop ‘Cooooeyy!’. Until now Peter G’s voice would sound something akin to an adult in a Charlie Brown cartoon. What a shame it wasnt sorted out years ago.

    By the way my vote for the hooped gentlemen is dire sartorial faux pas

      The ironic thing is that it may not, actually, be in full ‘boosted’ mode as yet. But it certainly was clear on Saturday – perhaps just the smaller crowd?! Or the shape of things to come?
      I’d agree with you re the hooped chap. At least, I hope so for all our sakes…

    No excuse for hoops at GP – under any circumstances – criminal!
