Supporters and former players digest the news about QPR's proposed takeover at Griffin Park

This year commemorates the 50th anniversary of one of the most turbulent periods in the history of Brentford FC as QPR sought to take over Griffin Park and leave The Bees homeless. The news stunned the footballing world but it didn't take long for fans, players, and staff to come together to fight off the proposed takeover. On the 50th anniversary of the supporters meeting at Griffin Park, former players and fans look back as the first efforts to fight off the takeover were launched.
