It might be foolish to go for an afternoon stroll around Brentford East this Sunday afternoon.The sight of so many Police vans,Police horses might suggest a seige of sorts... and frail residents might be best advised to stay indoors and avoid any chance of clashing with booze-fuelled pedestrians in the area.Is this a negative view..or should I rejoice that Brentford will be in the news again..hopefully for happy reasons.

That's probably more indicative of their employers and the lack of support or management than the actions of the officers in the field.

So who said the police are under resourced if they can afford to send 800 staff to a football match to caution a few drunks and then break the law themselves by peeing on public property!

In the end Brentford had to use Gift Aid for Leeds. By reducing the team to 9 and Canos getting himself especially sent off in case he scored a proliferation of goals.Lucky Leeds. Who to be fair had such a long list of bad injuries that they have had to field a team that is way below their best.Something that could equally affect Brentford if they do not learn from those clubs that are similar in frailty of reserve quality.

At the start of the season everyone said it would’ve been Leeds sending Brentford down, not the other way around.

I view of the antagonistic history between Chelsea and Leeds Utd.and the proximity of Brentford to SW6,I hope this doesn't turn out to be a serious fixture schedule mistake by the PL.

Some of these officers are likely to be TSG units which may be also on standby for trouble elsewhere in London. There are unusually four Premier League fixtures kicking off at the same time across London with fans of Man Utd and Everton also coming to the capital.Chelsea are at home as well and the TSG units are usually parked up along Chiswick High Road although, as Brentford's game may be the main flashpoint, the vans will be facing west not east.

That works out at about 1 policeman for every 2 away fans. Worst behaviour I've seen has been with Police Officers urinating in alleyways and driveways as portable facilities are seldom provided for them ( they now have to be outsourced and charged for) and their cumbersome protective gear makes it tricky to use facilities without damaging decor so they often decline offers of WC facilities by locals.
