I am going to be rooting for them to go up. Hopefully they will get "Torn a new arse" every week to teach them some manners. Feckin hate them as much as Chelski now :shock:

They do seem to have some issues, like their bitter and odd stadium announcer refusing to ever say our name properly due to his ongoing anger over our attempted takeover of them in the 1960s. :D

I've never been able to hate Brentford. To me they're still a plucky little club down the road.

And it's strange they've ever felt hard done by over the club takeover thing in the 60s as it was their own general manager who initiated the talks.

I used to quite like them. When I was at school and too young to go to Rangers away games I'd sometimes get the trolleybus up there and watch them when the Rangers were away. They were a slightly bigger club than us having recently played in the top flight and getting higher gates. I also like the pubs there. Have to admit I've gone right off them now. As said, a spell getting slaughtered in the Prem might do them good.

They are so bitter they aren't interested in facts. We will rise above them again one day - if someone at QPR will take the fixture against them as seriously as they and our supporters do.

One of the issues may be for people that Brentford are a really well run club who have very innovative ideas around the buying of players. Let us be fair their chairman has played a blinder and created a highly successful operation. The alternative was TF an ego filled maniac who did the opposite and created a mess it will take a long time to get over. Sometimes there is nothing more annoying than seeing a competitor doing what we all would like to have done. A wise chairman against a total buffoon with an ego the size of 2 houses.

I have no problem with their achievements. It's their twisted narrative against us, and of course their annual humiliations of us. Having said all that - they are a good example of how to run a club. Maybe MW can lend us a few tips :wink:

Should they manage to get promotion this season I can imagine they'd have a hard time in the Prem. They may well find it difficult to attract better quality players and getting used to playing in a new stadium at the same time as plying their trade in the top league could well add another layer of difficulty.

Their new stadium will have a capacity of 17,250. That is smaller than Loftus Road.

Strange one that. They are describing it as Premiership ready though.

They've made the seats a patchwork of different colours so that it won't look as empty when the TV cameras are there: now that's planning ahead.

How does the colour of the seats make the ground look less empty ? Have they painted little men on them ?
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

It kind of seems to work at the Gabba.

Well maybe if you've been out in the sun too long :)

Talking of which, are you impacted at all by the bushfires, WA ?

That probably sums up Queenslanders. :wink:

WA hasn't suffered in any way like NSW, fortunately other than a bit of thick smoke haze from some local bushfires I've been largely unaffected. Of course it helps living on the coast rather than inland. Anyway, thanks for asking.
