Push Up Brentford! - Ep 3 - Who Are Ya!
Show Notes

Episode 3 is called “Who Are Ya!”. 

Fans discuss how others have viewed their support for Brentford, often as eccentric, frequently with sympathy. They also remember some of the characters in the crowd as well as the importance of fanzines. 

There is an exploration of the less pleasant side of football, the violence, racism and homophobia but also how the crowd has changed in recent years, coming to reflect the area in which the club is based. 

We finish with some of the chants and songs that have rung out around the ground over the years, some general football songs, others much more specific to Brentford.

Push Up Brentford is an oral history project set up to commemorate the last year the club will play at Griffin Park, their home for 116 years. 

We have interviewed fans, young and old, as well as players and managers to uncover their personal stories.

We have created a fascinating living history of Brentford Football Club, starring the people who have made it such a special place over the years.

The project is run by volunteers, many of them Brentford fans, and supported by Arts and Education charity, digital:works.

The music was written and performed by Robb Johnson.

The project was funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and supported by Brentford Football Club.
