Brentford owner has chucked in £80 million since 2010 which is still on the budget side of championship spending. They've done well and I hope they can stay up.

Lovely.

Now to get the ground purchase done within the next year or so and real work can begin.

I know I rattled on a bit about this after Leicester City won the FA Cup last season, but I wonder how different the 2 clubs standings would be now had Miles Story not missed his penalty and we were promoted instead of Brentford. Probably not very much given Brentford were always on the up and would probably have bounced up eventually but it does get you thinking.

We’d have no doubt embarrassed ourselves in the final anyway.

The real what if has always been what if Andrew Black held on for 3 more
Months.

We’d have been a Championship club with successive promotions, massive momentum with a famous manager. We’d have been quite the attractive prospect and worth more....

I still think that will be what Clems end game will be. Do things correctly and leave us in a better position to be able to sell us on

Our past suggests, given the sand filled foundations of that time as well, that we'd have spunked too much money up the wall trying to compete and crashed and burned much quicker.

How do we know that or be able to say it with confidence, considering Paolo's (for you Nev!) ability to fall out with himself and start a fight in an empty room anything could have happened in 3 months.

If the fall out hasn’t of happened we were going up as Champions, no doubt.

Not sure of the best thread to post this on but this great pic just appeared on my Twitter feed. I stood in the old ‘enclosure’ a few times as a kid:
