Right lads this going to print before cardiff FA Cup game so i could be subject to change.
Normally the old top gear would end its show with a bombshell so with this in mind im opening my MDT with one, so here goes
Group Captain Sir Douglas Robert Steuart Bader, CBE, DSO & Bar, DFC & Bar, DL, FRAeS - Royal Air Force fighter pilot had NOTHING TO DO WITH BRENTFORD
Now that you've had a chance to recover from that titbit of information, i shall continue
Phil Collins EX-FAN - A SPLITTER IN OTHER WORDSThe balding 1980s singer and former Genesis drummer apparently used to support Brentford as a youngster when he lived near to the ground. However, when he moved closer to London he started to go and watch QPR and even had a season ticket during the Stan Bowles era.
Sarah Cracknell WENT-TO-A-GAME FANSeeing as though she's the lead singer of St Etienne we'd like to think she was a football fan, and is probably a season ticket holder with Les Verts, but that's maybe not the case. Anyway, she once said in an interview that she'd seen Brentford play a couple of times, so that's where the link comes from.
Adam Devlin FANOne look at the Twitter account of The Bluetones songwriter/guitarist and you know he's a proper Brentford fan.
Cameron Diaz TENUOUS LINKThe American actress is a friend of restaurateur and Brentford fan Dan Tana, that's where the rumours of her supporting the club came from, but don't expect to bump into her at the ground.
Jack Dunnett FANA long-serving Labour MP, Jack Dunnett was also Chairman of Brentford in the 1960s and actually discussed the possibility of a merger with QPR.
Greg Dyke DUAL-CLUB FANGreg Dyke's had a hell of a lot of media-related jobs but is best known as the former director general of the BBC and chairman of the F.A. A self-confessed fan of both Brentford and Manchester United, he attended his first Brentford game in the mid-1950s and went on to become non-executive chairman of the Bees in 2006.
Dean Gaffney FANBest known for his role in Eastenders as the loveable fall-guy Robbie Jackson (c'mon you remember him, the owner of Well'ard the dog), Gaffney was brought up in the area and first went to Brentford as a teenager in the early 90s and has been a big fan of the club ever since.
Natalie Sawyer FANThe TV and radio presenter is originally from Ealing in West London and is big Brentford fan. She featured in an advertising campaign to promote the club's tickets back in 2012.
Dan Tana FANThe American restaurateur was invited to watch the Bees back in the 1970s and ended up becoming the club's chairman.
Rick Wakeman FANBest known as the keyboard player with prog-rock band Yes, Wakeman has been a Bees fan since growing up in West London, and was a director of the club for a short time in the late 1970s.

Down to nitty gritty
This is a massive game for us and possibly Jesse "if" he is still at ER after the Cardiff FA Cup game tonight
I think we need at least 4 points from our next 3 games and with the filth getting all the VAR calls (whats new in that) i cant see us getting anything from that fixture as ever since robknobldo left them they have sprung to life.
We need some sort of jolt too and a win against Brentwood could be the catalyst for our seasons revival. Yes Thomas Frank has them in flying form but we need to make better decisions both on and off the ball. I'm convinced that if we cut down our error count we can cause them problems and i dont think they will be able to handle the Italian stallion playing a long side rodders who tbf is in very good goalscoring form himself.
Team i'll leave that in case of injury/ies tonight
but Bull says 1-0 super leeds
Rodders after 32 mins but by eck the next 68 mins would be torture.
full house at ER 36,000+
3 yellow cards
kin baltic (thermometer cant read that low) and a fckin brezze that would cut the boll*x of ya
