In a week of break ups, Richard Lee tops the lot

27 Mar

It’s around this time of year I start thinking about those April 1st headlines that will, inevitably, hit Brentford related media sites. The blue and white hooped away shirt. The emergency loan signing of Martin Rowlands. Buzzette caught in flagrante delicto with Billy the Badger from Fulham.

Bees up, Fulham down ! Brentford celebrate like we’ve won the FA Cup.

Russell Slade and Leyton Orient – Thank you. What began as a, seemingly, off the cup (sorry, cuff) comment made with a mouthful of sour grapes culminated in Griffin Park being transformed into a sea of Slade embossed FA cups yesterday as Brentford finally left League One.

Yes – we did celebrate when we won against strong opponents at Leyton Orient . I make no apologies for that. They were promotion rivals and their record demanded respect. However, that was nothing compared to yesterday.

Brentford were in celebratory mood all day long – fans, club officials and players alike.
