AWAY GROUND REVIEW: Brentford
- Griffin Park is an Old School proper football ground on a residential estate near Brentford National Rail station. On our first visit in 2006 we were housed on the Ealing Road terrace prior to it having a roof installed. This time we were in the two tiered Brook Road Stand. The view from the lower terrace isn't great but if your in the upper seating you don't have a great view of the goal below.Home Fans
- Brentford fans are absolutely brilliant clapping Swindon Town fans after our playoff loss but there was an unsavoury side with some idiot Brentford fans goading Swindon fans and attacking Gary Roberts and Luke Rooney at the end of the match as they came to applaud the travelling Swindon support.Parking
- I have never travelled to the ground by car. I have always gone by train which only costs around £30.00 for an anytime return to Brentford Station. You take the train from Swindon and change at Reading Station.Stewarding
- The stewards got a bit funny with Swindon Town supporters who were crammed into the stand and were stood in the aisles but other than that they were fine.Food
- Have never had any food at Griffin Park, instead opting for the BBQ at The Griffin Pub.Away Fans Pub
- We went to The Griffin which is famously the location were Green Street was filmed. This is a fullers pub located close to the away end. They had a great BBQ and when any potential trouble occurred they would lock fans in, call the police and tell the potential trouble makers to clear off.Overall
- Definitely worth the trip. One of my favourite Grounds and would be a shame should Brentford move to a new ground as been mooted. A proper old school ground with old school fans. Get there early and try to visit all four pubs located, one on each corner of the stadium.
