Where can you be found on matchdays? New Road
What do you see as BIAS’s role? To give the fans an independent voice
What’s the best thing about being a Brentford fan? 1) The tradition, following the team that my father supports, and my Grandfather played for. 2) The fans â€“ the numbers we take to away games, especially a big match, is amazing. 3) The original songs we come up with – Batesy, Marcus Gayle etc etc – we need more of those! 4) Hey Jude – Whenever/wherever you are when that song is played the hairs on the back of my neck always stand up! Shame so many teams seem to be nicking our anthem these days!
What’s the worst thing about being a Brentford fan? 1) The fact that we have only had 1 season out of the bottom two years in god knows how long! 2) The lack of ambition over the years the club has shown by selling a player when in a good position for promotion (hopefully this will change now!) 3) Colleagues thinking I instantly know nothing about football because I support a lower league team! 4) A 130 mile round trip for a ‘home game’.
Where do you see Brentford in ten years time? Hopefully in the Championship and in Lionel Road. Great that it is that we look like we may now be getting a new stadium, the 15/20 k seater stadium that is being muted will mean that it will be very hard for the Bees to push any higher on from there. Hopefully the ground will be built with the option to extend even further if/when needed.
