Fans at Brentford’s final game in Division 1 against Stevenage will be in for a treat. Beesotted have prepared a special tribute to Orient manager Russell Slade who famously moaned “They celebrated like the won the FA Cup” after his Orient side were beaten by 10 men Brentford at Brisbane Road earlier this season – a result which moved Brentford into poll position in the promotion race.

It will be a comment that he will never forget as Brentford fans adopted the phrase as a victory chant which will no doubt go on for a few years to come. It could be argued that a Bees fans and players used that as well as the “Mind the Gap” jibes as a motivators to spur them onto promotion.

Saturday’s little shenanigans will be very special … He won’t forget saying that in a hurry … you can guarantee.
