This is a round up of some of the coverage the night received online.

GetWestLondon were one of the media organisations represented on Tuesday by regular Brentford corrrespondent Tom Moore. He spoke to Romaine Sawyers about the film and the problems football faces overall.

"I think, like a few people on the panel said, football is a powerful industry and can change opinions," Romaine told Tom. The full story is available here.

Sky Sports also ran a piece on the evening, which can be seen on Brentford's YouTube channel.
