Brentford FC 

Brentfudd

Saved from extinction by SUFC ex-hero manager Dave “Wodge” Webb in the nineties, Brentfudd thought that they may have to play at Woking in order to fulfill their fixtures for a while, while then-owner Ronnie Limp-noades tried to flog their ground, the famous Gonad Park.
This was a sad state of affairs for the Fudd, whose illustrious history singles them out as; “The most successful club what can be seen from the elevated section of the M4 although no-one knows whose ground it is even when told”.
Gonad Park, with a pub on each corner, is a homely if ramshackle stadium, and being on the flight path for Heathrow Airport, pioneered roof advertising which could be seen from the air.
This caused much controversy in 1975 when an advert by local funeral directors Allan, Armpit, Rogers, Grunt and Holler had twenty foot high letters proclaiming “AARGH you’re all going to die!”
Formed in 1890 from the Gunnerbuggersbury Park Home for Destitutes, the “Gunners” had to change their name in 1912 to avoid a direct assault from Woolwich Arsenal.
Nicknamed the “B’s” Because most of the players were without known parents, errr… fathers displaced if you know what I mean, sort of “Daddies away working”, illegitimate kind of thing, well, OK then, they were all bastards. In the dictionary definition sense of course.
Most successful in the 1920’s, when local sailor Seaman Staines bankrolled the club like old Limp-noades tried, the B’s have been less than fortunate before 2013 with only a few see-saw promotions and relegations to show for it.
Manager Uve Russernegger almost achieved promotion to the Championship in 2013, when in the very last minute of the very last game of the season, he substited the normal penalty taker with goalkeeper Marcello Russernegger, whose powerful penalty cannoned off the bar and rebounded into his own net. Stripe me!
Promotion to the Championship was finally achieved in 2014, and with a new stadium on the horizon, the club have celebrated this by announcing that they will be renamed Barratt Homes FC.
