    Brentford "better" than City, Arsenal

    So my Brentford supporting friend posted this on Facebook.
    I told him doing that against Blackpool isn't exactly the most amazing feat, and it doesn't make him better than the aforementioned Premier League teams.

    He goes on to post the Bees' records against City and Arsenal, with dates such as 50/51 and 88/89 for City, and 36/37, 37/38 for Arsenal. Yes, they had a respectable record all those years ago, but so did Wolves, which I pointed out.

    He then posts the highlights from their win against us, and I said, big wow, you beat us once.
    So then I told him it's deluded to compare Wolves and Brentford to Chelsea, Arsenal et al, and he posts a match report from Brentford's 2-2 draw against Chelsea, during their Benitez era.

    I could have posted Wolves wins against Tottenham, United, City, Liverpool et cetera, but I would look a bit silly.

    I told him, in conclusion, Blackpool are in a big mess, and it's silly to compare Brentford's big win against them to something similar that City or Arsenal do.

    I ended with "Just enjoy the ride, and don't let the fame get to your head."

    To which he replied: "We're going to win the League play-offs and bag a Champions League place next season. We'll come back to this then."

    For the love of God, are these people on something?!?!?! :eek:

    Out of those 42 shots they had, they only scored 4 so you could argue that they need to improve their finishing.
    Just let him get carried away Erick, they'll hit earth with a massive thump soon enough.

    Just wait until Warburton leaves them at the end of the season. They will plummet back down the leagues.

    Apparently Warburton is leaving because he wanted more bread.

    Does this really warrant a thread? So what if a Brentford fan is getting carried away with there relative success at this time? Let him, as the OP says "enjoy the ride". I'll certainly loose the run of myself if in the future Wolves challenge for a Champions League place. Why I could even do it if we make mid-table Premier League anytime in the next 5 seasons.

    Should they fail to get promotion I think they will suffer from very high expectations next season.

    Does it deserve a thread? :rolleyes:

    Did you need to post a response? :cool:

    It's a forum ... for stuff about football ... stop getting stressed or worried about $$$$ that you don't need to be worried or stressed about. Just move on past it and ignore it.

    I like seeing how small clubs present themselves to the wider football family to make themselves feel more important. It gives me a little chuckle

    This is one fan and his views like yours or mine may be far from representative of the vast majority of Brentford fans. It can hardly be true or accurate to state that this is how Brentford as a club presents themselves to the wider football family.

    Deluded is putting it mildly. Just sounds the inane dribbling blathering of someone on a mind distorting hallucinogen.

    They've been in the top tier of English football once since the war (1946-7) and got relegated that season.

    They do seem to be a rather over confident bunch, considering they're such a tiny club.

    I think his enthusiasm is great ... I used to be a bit like that when I was a kid. Then reality set in. When he's served a bit more time in the university of life and school of hard knocks he'll eventually get as cynical as the rest of us sadly ...

    God I hate Brentford. Before last season I didn't mind them infact quite liked them. My dislike for them has escalated rapidly since then.

    By the way your friend sounds like a dick.

    He does indeed sound a bit of a deluded prat. It might be interesting to hear his views in say 4 years time, when Brentford have just slid back down to League 1, having failed to go up this season and with finance problems.

    That article is simply click bait. I doubt the "journalist" writing it actually believes what he's saying. All about getting the page views. I doubt Brentford will go up, but if they do they will get battered week in week out.

    My Bees supporting brother is saying that the team have been galvanised since the Warburton news and that they are playing for im and to give him a big send off. For me its us, them, Ipswich and B'mouth for 5th and 6th.

    I recall after Wolves beat them at Griffin Park last season how many of their supporters post match were saying how Wolves would slip up blah blah blah.

    Well Brentford may well slip up themselves this season but if they don't how nice would it be for Wolves to beat them in the PO final.

    Unfortunately, if you went to the game at Griffin Park last season, you would realise that this is indeed the view of the majority of their fans. Arrogant is the best word to describe them. Read the match report from that game and in particular the comments from Mr Warburton, sour grapes personified. Then look at some of their forums from last season, the fans are as bad if not worse than the Manager.

    Spot on SW and whilst Wolves supporters are often referred to as fickle I don't think they are as anywhere fickle as Brentford supporters are deluded.

    I was at the game last season and was among the Wolves fans. What I experienced were two sets of fans having a go at each other. I was also right alongside some 'handbags' that broke out among some Wolves fans. For the record I also left a lengthy post on the incident at Brentford station afterwards. I also attended the game this season but booked my ticket through the Brentford ticket office and therefore was sitting among the Brentford fans. Certainly among those I sat I did not hear anyone bad mouth Wolves. Furthermore there were two Wolves fans sitting close to me attending the game with Brentford supporting mates. The atmosphere was friendly throughout the game. Sadly we had little to cheer this season.
