The one thing worse than a goldfish in the house.

3 Dec

There are now just a few days to go until the big announcement.

Brentford fans are waiting anxiously as the committee considers their decision. With the vote soon to be revealed I have to say that, personally, I won’t be upset if it doesn’t go our way.
