Huge day today, Leeds United come to the big city, not to face Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs or West Ham as they have done so many times in the past, but the mighty Bees. The prospect of Brentford playing United in anything other than a cup competition was inconceivable even just a handful of years ago. I accept that this says more about the visitors fall from grace than it does about a phoenix like rise from the ashes for my beloved club, but that doesn't make it any less of an event !
United are going to win League 1 this season and good luck to them, they are the best team and biggest club outside the top two divisions, although Norwich are fast improving, but the only title holding champions on the pitch today will be the Bees. I would settle for a point, but a famous win would live long in the memory and be something to savour.
Now to more mundane things, I have four match previews for today and will post at least two of them on the blog, one very shortly, so please check back.
