Get your kit on for the lads – the verdict on 2015/16 shirts is in.

9 Jul

The moment we’ve (I’ve) been waiting for has arrived. Brentford have released their 2015/16 kit to the world and, one has to say, it has been worth the wait.

First up, the home effort. We’d already seen the black shoulder stripes and a suggestion of matching collars and, erm, placket (Sean Connery can rest easy tonight – kids, ask your dads). These were confirmed along with some additional white side bands, deep red (power red, I believe, the official colour chart declares this as) and a brand new sponsor.

From Ipswich Town to Fulham – which is pick of the fixtures?

18 Jun

Brentford fans have finally been able to cast their eyes over the fixture list and start updating the calendar after the 2015/16 schedule was announced on Wednesday. Whilst the derbies against Fulham and QPR were, in probably all cases, the first games just about everybody looked for, there was as much other interest elsewhere.

They aren’t going to come much tougher than Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich Town this season and so to begin proceedings against the Tractor Boys is going to see us start with a bang. Ipswich, like Brentford, reached the play off semi-finals last time out whilst also pipped us 4-2 in the Boxing Day battle for the top of the Championship.

Things remained level for a mere 19 seconds that day and so I’m sure there’ll be a lot of people out for a bit of payback. Personally, I’m just pleased with a home start – you really can’t ask for more than that.
