The two most beautiful words in footballing parlance are back.

18 Aug

There are just two words to mention today for Brentford fans. You’d be forgiven for thinking these are Leeds and Barnsley. This, after their respective 90th minute goals in the latest round of fixtures denied three points for Fulham and turned a plucky away draw into a glorious defeat for QPR. You could even have Shane Duffy in mind after the Blackburn defender has endured what could be politely called a ’torrid’ a start to the season. But you’d be wrong. For me, it’s all about the most beautiful piece of alliteration in the English language…. Terrace Talk.

Yes, football’s most brilliant feature is back. And this time Sean Ridley is in charge.

To read the rest of this article, season 2016/17 is now available for download on e-book in the retrospective: Welcome Home, King Jota (Brentford FC season review 2016/17)

    Sorry…….but you have the two words wrong. The only two words that matter in football are ‘Three Points’. Those two words determine success or failure and come match day that is all the club, the players and the supporters are interested in achieving.

      Come match day ‘Three Points’ are amongst the things that supporters look to achieve. Along with ‘good times’, ‘seeing friends’ and ‘terrace talk’ 😀
      I’d never deny ‘three points’ aren’t equally key but the low brow, light hearted approach of these pages means that we celebrate ‘the other stuff’ in football as much as the victories.
      For me, ‘terrace talk’ are both beautiful words. Here’s to more over the season.
      And, of course, wins for the Bees.

        With three points banter is good, lively, fun, etc. With no points it is demoralising, feeds on negativity and allows the cynics to get stuck into the players… we need the three points first, then everything is fun and the sun is always shining.
