Brentford are to me know a local club and one I admire for what they've done the past few years.
Swansea my local club when I was stationed in South Wales for 4 years. And I have a fair few mates who are passionate supporters of the Swans.

I can't find a link to watch the game, however, 20 or so minutes gone and Brentford has a two-goal lead, nearly making it three when Toney hit the bar.

Swansea been all over the place so far.
Forget Cooper. Keep an eye on the Brentford Manager. Danish and has brought in a lot of good young Danish talent; a country that punches well above it's weight in terms of producing good quality footballers.

President Jie of China seems up for it, just got to get Everton on board

Brentford was still in the top flight after WW2 but got relegated in the first season back 1946/47. I think Everton ended up tenth.

Well damn, their wikipedia page omitted their brief top flight come back after being relegated in 39. So here's the plan, they come up, we win the league, the go down, war, then when they bounce back we know the war is over.
Incidentally Barry Hesketh, I want to compliment you as you often pop up with interesting news stories and tid bits the rest of us seem to miss. FIFA, ESL, etc. You're kind of like my sub news provider within ToffeeWeb. Keep it up mate.

Hesketh is an alias, a nom de plume.
He's really Barry Horne. Insider info personified.

You obviously never saw the masterpiece that is Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Robbed of an Oscar by a Laurence Olivier film about some Danish dude with mummy issues whose Dad died.

I'm in tears here.
Welcome to the Prem, Bees. Happy to have you.

I can just see it.

I've already got odds on them being relegated next season. Sorry Mike!

My mate claims he did it in his youth, completing the circuit before kickoff. Unfortunately he couldn't then make it to his seat. Missed the game completely.

It'd be 'Everton that' to draw them early doors and give them their first ever Premier League points wouldn't it?
Well, it would!
Having finished behind a promoted side each of the last three seasons, I'm not exactly putting six points in pencil next to our names for next season yet either. Really looking forward to playing them though and hoping the Bees supporters are properly enjoying themselves tonight, wherever they are.
I think I speak for all Evertonians when I say how happy I am for them, at least until we start dropping points against them anyway. Well done again Brentford!
35 Posted 29/05/2021 at 17:34:19
To paraphrase Arthur C Clarke on Brentford next year "All these points are yours, except Everton. Attempt no victory there."

This team will probably do better than Leeds in their first year with one or two additions. Top scorers in the Championship and they have a half-decent defence too.

They play a similar system to Carlo!!
I don't think Ivan Toney is leaving there anytime soon the way he was pointing to the badge at the end.
