Brentford Stadium Drone Photos

The drone BFC use, which seems to go up every week, has so far taken over 6000 photos which can all be found here: []

Can't wait to move in!

It's looking really good - can't wait to go there! If I've interpreted the photos correctly it looks like the pitch will be oriented south west to north east. The prevailing wind in the area tends to be from the south west and the stands at each end of the pitch are somewhat lower, suggesting that there may be a breeze along the length of the pitch, rather than the swirling effect we get at MadStad. Hopefully the team, and particularly the kickers, will get plenty of chance to acclimatise to it before we play there in anger.

I'm not trying to find fault but from the current photos I find it a strange design.

It looks fragmented and more old style than the Madstad which was designed over 25 years ago.

I think the stands at either end look small and therefore more intimate which will be good.

I'll reserve judgement on the design.

As long as we have a pack that bullies the opposition, backs that can take their opportunities, can get 10k regularly for games and folk in the bars can dispense drinks quickly and efficiently I'll be happy.

Bear in mind the East and West stands (end stands) will be joined up at the corners to the North stand, so it won't look quite as fragmented after that.

I would think that having 10000 fewer seats will make it more intimate and not feel like an empty aircraft hanger you get when the Madstad is only one third full.Football stadia always seem remote when not chocker block,anyway upwards and onwards.

Land in that neck of the woods doesn't come cheap and the planning restrictions limit what you can do. I'm looking forward to playing in a smaller stadium with more atmosphere. Roll on 20/21 season.
