Moses Odubajo the cover star of your #BREHUL issue

22 February 2019

“We were disappointed to lose the reverse fixture in December, but we’ve come a long way since then and hope to prove that this afternoon.”

From the Dugout: Thomas Frank is hoping to extend Brentford’s winning streak in West London with Hull City the visitors to Griffin Park

 

“It’s been a productive period behind the scenes. Fans’ focus groups were conducted last week, with heritage and legacy and inclusion and diversity on the agenda. As mentioned in my previous programme notes, supporter feedback is vital to us, particularly with a stadium move on the horizon.”

From the Boardroom: An update from Brentford Chairman, Cliff Crown

Four in Focus: The Tigers’ key quartet in profile

 

“Hull were bottom of the league on 6 October and they aren’t going to go down; they’ve probably already got enough points to stay up. That has to be considered a major achievement given all the issues that Nigel Adkins has had to deal with.”

Heroes and Villains: Greville Waterman looks back on some previous clashes with today’s opponents through the lens of two significant performances

 

“Imagine someone taking away your favourite thing to do for two years of your life - it’s hard to imagine in any circumstances. I was hard to be around, and I went through a short spell of depression. My family, friends, team-mates and my girlfriend saw me on a lot of dark days. I would shut down and not want to do anything or go anywhere.”

Big Book of Griffin Park: David Lane tells the story of some past triumphs over Hull City, including Brentford’s first league victory over The Tigers in February 1935

 

“It was mad. I was staying in a hotel on my own most of the time and I used to have pre-match at Tesco before the games, which was crazy looking back on it now. I was only a teenager so it was a completely different experience to what I was used to.”

History Boys: Ten years on from Brentford’s League Two title triumph, we speak to James Wilson as he looks to repeat the feat with Lincoln City

 

“It was only the next day when reality really took hold. Not so much about our impressive display but about Griffin Park. It made me realise what a dwindling commodity such occasions now are. With only one full season left here, how many more times will we get to enjoy a game in such an atmosphere?”
