Brentford 2 Fulham 1, the Bees were one down with eight minutes to go, and are now joint second in the Championship.

Impressive considering they were 21st in League Two six years ago. We need some of this 'football fortune'. Surely we are due some.


"Pound for pound, and class for class, the best football team I have seen in England since the war. In the league they were in they played football nobody else could play. Everything was measured, planned and perfected and you could not wish to see more entertaining football." Bill Shankly, Manager GTFC 1951-54

Look at Bournemouth too who were below us the season before we were relegated when they started the League 2 season on -17 points along with Rotherham (who are also now in The Championship and in a brand new ground). It was only Luton's -30 points that kept us up that season.

I remember outplaying Bournemouth for most of the auto wind final and now look at us both
I wonder what they have done that we have failed to do since that late nineties final
Can't just be money and luck can it?
Come on Town!!

Look at all the other teams who haven't done nothing in years though. I think it's more a case of clubs making their own 'luck' more than anything else.

Massive respect. To think this is the first time they been in the champ for ages and to be a point of top is excellent and totally surprising. In truth thought they would be hovering amongst relegation all season

Manager has got something to do with it.Feel if your a genuine guy and people like you, you will get the best out of players. Think as well some managers have this more in abundance than others.If you have in my opinion the persona and the tactical nous you are more than likely on to a winner

I think the £50-odd million that the Brentford owner has pumped into the club may have something to do with their current success...

Bournemouth have done well but do have a Russian beeznessman bankrolling them, so they aren't exactly on their uppers either.

It's having the right manager, players, facilities to attract these players and well erm... the cash to buy it all.

Exactly. Did Yeovil have someone backing them or are they an exception to the rule?
