This comment was added on the forum after the game, and I thought it deserved being blogged!
First and foremost I’m immensely proud of my little club. Clearly the team done a job and it’s fair to say that you were definitely the better side over the first 94 minutes and the subsequent 30 of extra time…..but for us to come to a Premiership team and not be dominated or in awe because of the occasion I think says a lot about the character of our squad.
Yes this was our “Cup Final” to a certain degree but getting a result was really secondary to most Bees fans and much more important was to come away from the game having shown that we can compete on a bigger stage, and hopefully the players will realise this and get their arses in gear in the league!
As for us fans, I’d say that we were definitely Premier League last night and if/when we manage to get up to the Championship, turnouts like last night would be quite a common occurrence as the majority that were there last night are also there every week at home.
We’ve had some nice comments from a few Blues fans on the Griffin Park Grapevineand, aside from the few idiots claiming to be Zulu’s in the corner to our right, most of you have been ok towards us and haven’t gloated too much and that’s appreciated.
Good luck for the rest of the season and I guess we’ll just have to concentrate on the Treble now!!
