Brentford v Celtic

Apparently theyre letting Celtic have 3(!!) sides of Griffin Park for the friendly. Brentford fans just get the Brook Road stand.

Gonna be weird for the Brentford supporters to be surrounded on 3 sides by away fans in your own ground....

    Spending money to help boost the local economy. Sounds a win win to me.

  • Brentford need a crowd of 9,000 to cover the appearance fee...

    Even weirder that their home fans are being put into the away end and Celtic have the three home stands.

    With the old bill fees on top of that, can see why it's 25 notes a ticket. Not worth the aggro, and could be an accident waiting to happen for Brentford.

    Cardiff and Millwall also visiting Griffin Park this summer. The local glazers will be busy.
  • This happens frequently in the SPL and I'm pretty sure Walsall did something similar for Sheffield Wednesday during our promotion season.

    One of the pubs on the corners at Griffin Park is the HQ of the West London Celtic Supporters Club (which I discovered whilst wearing a Rangers shirt !) so this friendly makes sense.

    If Celtic supporters have 3 sides of the ground, shouldn't they be allowed to have 3 out of the 4 pubs as well!
  • The Old Firm's away support is ridiculous, this is a pretty small allocation by their standards!

    Don't forget the cleaning costs! ;-)

  • Could easily be trouble at this one, I think they had Lincoln away the other season and trouble broke out all over the place!
  • Its in West London - isn't there a Rangers/Chelsea link?

    It'll be Brighton vs Aberdeen/Spurs all over again....
  • Who at Brentford thought Celtic,Millwall & Cardiff would make for good trouble-free friendlies?

  • Yeah some Chelsea may fancy it.

    Celtic new a thing or too to keep their fans sweet - play a friendly at a ground with a boozer on each four corners ;-)))
  • Celtic played a friendly at Chelsea a few years ago!
  • Might go to one of the Brentford friendlies as Im not holding out much hope for a Valley friendly in the summer....
  • Celtic have played Fulham or QPR away pre-season several times over recent years. Been to a couple with a Celtic mate and there was never a hint of trouble. Just a really good atmosphere and a few beers locally.

    Not what i heard at the Fulham game, Fighting with each other in the park, abusing locals etc etc

  • They managed to conduct themselves fairly well in Seville with a much larger crowd, should be fine. I suspect a lot of the hysteria on here is because of Sevco's poor behaviour at the match in Manchester, but they're a completely different kettle of pish.

    Hmm. I'm not in a position to get into a massive row as I've only been to see them three or four times in London. They definitely have an element it's just that I've never witnessed it personally. The group of them we were with were pure gold.
  • I wonder if they will keep the brentford fans in to let the celtic fans catch there trains
