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?

Whitehall ! Dixon !! Gates !!! Cameron is yesterday’s news

In a season which has seen Brentford achieve many highs – the double over Fulham; the stunning second half comeback to beat Saturday’s opponents, Derby County; Jota reinventing ‘Fergie time’ in his own name – to mention but a few, there have also been several lows. Now isn’t the time to list those with the exception of one – the oft repeated fact of my inadvertent contribution to the revelation that ‘celebrity fan’ Cameron Diaz was, actually, no such thing (although Absolute Radio DJ Christian O’Connell was the man to drop the ultimate bombshell).

Nineteen and out. Just once, Bees not so hard to beat

Bad luck Brentford but well played Wolves. Let’s get that out there from the start. Much as it hurts to say, they deserved their win in a game that, for much of the time, was a coach driver’s wet dream. Not so much parking the bus as turning Griffin Park into a Routemaster convention.

A strange sounding combination, to be sure, and we’ll get there shortly. First, though – who’d be a manager?

Am I alone in finding the current situation at Brentford all rather surreal?
