As Brentford gear up for Saturday’s FA Cup clash with Staines Town, I have a massive case of ‘foot in mouth’.

Last weekend this column featured, amongst other things, a lament for the death of the snowy weather ‘orange ball’, replaced by the new Mitre high viz yellow creation. It was another nail in the coffin of footballing tradition, so I thought.

To read the rest of this article, season 2013/14 is now available to download onto Kindle, in full. Containing previously unseen content, you can do so here for less than the cost of one matchday programme.

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.
