69 Years And Still Waiting
Belated commiserations to Brentford FC, who gave their all during a spirited second half at Wembley on Sunday at the Johnson's Paint Trophy Final against Carlisle United after having gone a goal down during a disappointing first half.
They did well to get there, and in the event were the width of a goalpost away from extra time.
It was a great experience for my son Joe, my father, my brother-in-law, my nephew and his friend, and my first time at the new stadium.
A big thank you to Vic London and to all at the Isleworth Royal British Legion who organised the double decker bus that got us there and back, and to Di for the bar and barbie beforehand.
It has been 69 years since Brentford last won a cup final. Maybe next time?
