There’s three of us in this, so it’s getting a bit crowded

6 Apr

Brentford got back to winning ways against Notts County yesterday (no bad thing given Wolves also picked up three points) but it was Rotherham who continue to replace the self-destructing Leyton Orient as ‘the third team in this table toping affair’.

We’ll start, of course, at Griffin Park where our super Bees ran out as 3-1 victors over Notts County, despite the card happy Charles Breakspear as the man in the middle. However, for once we were the beneficiaries of a red card / penalty call with no repeat of the mid-week decision reversal against Sheffield United.

Floodlights! Cameras!! Action!!! It can only be Brentford

Like many Brentford fans, earlier this month I spent Friday night in front of the TV watching the Gillingham v Wolves game, optimistically hoping for the favour of a draw and being blown away by the home side’s last minute victory.

Three weeks later and the roles are reversed. With the Sky cameras at Griffin Park tonight, it is the likes of Wolves, Leyton Orient and, to a lesser extent Preston, who will be hoping for a similar favour from Gillingham.

My big, fat, (temporary) Gypsy wedding

“I support Brentford AND West Ham/Liverpool/Chelsea” (delete as applicable).

I don’t, of course. It’s a statement for illustrative purposes only. However, there are some fans who have as much interest in events at, for example, Upton Park or Anfield as they do in those at Griffin Park.

Good luck to them, if so. Personally, I struggle with the concept of also following a Premiership team. Largely, because I have too much pain/pleasure invested in supporting the Bees, without chucking West Ham or whomever else into the mix. Lionel Road is enough for me without having to worry about the Olympic park, too.

Then there’s the prospect of what happens should we be thrown together by the vagaries of a cup draw? This is a lose-lose scenario for ‘Johnny two clubs’. Go for the safety first option of the higher division team and it is a case of ditching cup romance whilst, at the same time, humiliation should they slip up on the proverbial potato skin.
