Brentford and Middlesbrough’s powerful connection. The final musical notes.

12 Dec

Our reader may have noticed the comment in yesterday’s article in regards to shared ‘run out’ music.

Specifically, the fact that both Brentford and Middlesbrough are welcomed on to the pitch with the theme tune from 1960s TV show, ‘The Power Game’.

It’s a stirring enough piece of music – equal parts nostalgia and Communist rally – although not one that really sets my pulse racing any more. Of more interest is why two teams, with no obvious connection, use the same tune?

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.
