Inside Your Matchday Programme: Fulham

Take a look inside Saturday's programme ahead of another West London derby

13 December 2019

This weekend's edition of the Matchday Programme is inspired by the 1986/87 season, as we play Fulham in the league for the final time at Griffin Park.

Dan Long continues to profile some of the greatest Brentford players, this week Jackie Graham takes the spotlight. From humble beginnings in Scotland to looking for success in the United States.

"It was quite a fall from grace but there was, apparently, an ulterior motive – his girlfriend happened to live nearby."

Rob Jex examines every local derby at Griffin Park in Stat Attack. From the very first meeting between The Bees and West Ham United, to the most played derby in our history: Brentford vs Queens Park Rangers.

"The Cottagers are another of Brentford’s oldest rivals, the teams having first clashed competitively in the London Senior Cup in 1895. While the 4-0 win in April 1992 is generally regarded as the most memorable of the 24 League meetings between the sides, other notable encounters include, of course, the 2-1 win in the Championship in November 2014 that featured Jota’s 91st minute winner.

Our Story So Far series continues with Hayden Wood looking into Fulham's recent relegation and another attempt to climb to the top table in 2019/20.

"26 defeats and 81 goals in the wrong column saw Fulham crash back down to the Championship at the first time of asking. Rumours that the club’s defensive line was nominated for an International Award for Charitable Giving have proved unfounded."

Brentford Women's with Sarah O'Connor: "The dressing room atmosphere is also amazing, everyone is so supportive of every single member of the squad. It’s okay to make mistakes because you’ll just get told to learn from it and move on."

Last Word with Ben Burgess: "I even recall having a sticker of Paul Merson on my schoolbooks; in the picture he was celebrating a victory and mimicking downing a beer. As far as I was concerned, at 14 years old, footballers were drinking beer and eating red meat."

My Brentford Story with Marc Byrne: "After so many years as a supporter, standing next to my son, beating one of the best sides in the Premier League. That’s how I’ll remember Griffin Park, in that moment."

Also inside: Ollie Watkins is our pull-out poster, Thomas Frank welcomes you to Griffin Park, Rob Jex takes us back to April 1992 in Fixture in Focus and Ben Strange updates us on Brentford B.
