    I'm not, but I love brentfords ground.
    The famous pubs on all 4 corners.

    I went when I was working in London 2 seasons ago, we finished work early so me and the boys caught the train about 4 o'clock and got to the first pub.

    No city fans arrived yet, except for the odd one or two, the pub was selling hot dogs in beer garden and a gang of about 10 brentford fans started talking to us.
    Really friendly bunch.

    Few pints there then walked to pub no.2 behind the other corner of the away stand, where we passed a man selling hot dogs from his bbq in his garden, just a little sign up saying "hot dogs £1" , the queue in his garden was like a greggs.

    We did 3 of the pubs , all friendly lads we met, before meeting up with tony tit and the rest of his bus in pub4 , where we left tony cos the game was on sky and he wanted to stay there in the warm to watch the game.

    Brilliant away trip , brilliant ground and I pass their new ground driving along the A4, looks nowhere near the fun Griffin park provides.

    Had a day on the piss with some Brentford lads when they played Stoke at the Mill Stad in the play offs, good lads, loved Cardiff city centre and were impressed with the standard of women here.

    I'm gutted that I am too far away to go. Griffin Park is my favourite away ground and I have always had a soft spot for Brentford and their fans. They love a bit of banter but they have always been friendly and welcoming in any of my experiences with them. Lot's of great pubs in the area and an old fashioned football terrace, I remember going to watch us beat them with 9 men when Slade was in charge and Alex Revell dinked the keeper from outside the box. It was brilliant:hehe:. Now we just need Madine to do something similar:aya:

    I was there when we played them on Boxing Day during the 16/17 season, Whitts gave us a 1-0 lead from the spot before an absolute thundercunt of a shot went top corner for them to make it 1-1, to rub salt into the wounds the group of kids behind me dropped a cup of tea down my back which burnt like fuck but because I’m the hardest bastard going I showed no emotion, roll on injury time and there was about 4 mins added on and with 2 minutes to spare big Ken managed to slip past the Brentford defence and slot it home (sounded a bit dodgy that one) and sent the away end into absolute raptures and limbs and it felt like it was going to be a lovely 3 points to take back to South Wales.

    Then Brentford fucking equalised again.

    Loved the place.

    the last time i went there was when rick wright (i think) tried to ban us going to away games and the next game was brentford on a tuesday night. brentford said we were welcome and 1500 of us made the journey.
