Last time I looked into it, Irish still hadn't signed an agreement to play at Brentford. Lots of discussion around simplifying the stadium, reducing capacity and so making its build quicker, cheaper and more cost certain so Brentford would be more sustainable for years to come. Lots of (unreasonable?) Brentford fans saying not preparing to be a Prem side by having a Prem ground and capacity was showing a lack of ambition whilst owner saying, in the real world, Brentford would never be a Prem club. Also, all the corporate entertainment and nonmatchday cash generating stuff taken out of the build as expensive and decision made not to compete in what, local to them, is a very crowded market in which they are not experts. As I read it, Irish joining them would be great but not certain and they would still only be tenants/renters, not owners.
