Re: Brentford - The proposed stadium changes

I guess it depends where your starting from Bazzo. Unfortunately Brentford isn't on a main line so anyone travelling any distance will require 1 or more changes + the delays involved and the increased risk of a donkey replacement service.
And this wonderful train service is only hourly on a Sunday.

Yes, but the 10k will be able to walk from home (Sm14)

You joke about it, but it is a fact that there are way more people living in the greater London area within the tube network in particular than there around the outskirts of Reading? I do not see why people try to turn that into a joke? I was never talking about people walking to the game, (even if some in Chiswick/Kew/Brentford could) I was saying that there is a tube station (Gunnersbury) a 5 min walk away and a train station (Kew Bridge) a 1 min walk away with trains from Waterloo. I have no idea how regularly they run, but anyone within the tube and train network (Millions?) could get there in under an hour I would say and that has to open up a whole new support base. I can see the logic.

Of course it will be more difficult for lots of current people who go to games in Reading (me included) to go to Brentford, but the point that I was making was that a stadium within the tube network opens up a whole new option for way more people to come to the games if we are in Brentford. It just does. I might not like it, but it does.
