Brentford Fan Sheds Tears After Emotional First Premier League Win

One Brentford fan couldn't hide the emotion of seeing his side win on their return to the top tier of English football for the first time in 74 years, as he didn't hold back the tears at full time.


Brentford made it to the Premier League for the first time after winning the playoffs last season and they didn't take long to make a big impact.

Sergi Canos' excellent strike in the 22nd minute of the game gave the Bees the lead, before Christian Norsgaard doubled their advantage with just 17 minutes of the game to go.

The best thing about the hosts win was the return of full stadium for the Premier League, the first game since March 2020, as Brentford's crowd got to enjoy a packed out Brentford Community Stadium for the very first time after moving there in September last year.

One fan let the emotion get to him at full time, and we love to see it, as he shed tears at the sight of his team winning in the top tier.

It was a wonderful and emotional night for fans to be back at football, for many of them for the first time in well over a year.

As well as tears, there was also a lot of praise for the home supporters for their reaction to Arsenal's Bukayo Saka coming on in the second half.

The young England player was on the receiving end of some horrific racist abuse after missing a penalty in the Euro 2020 final against Italy, but was given a standing ovation for the second time in a number of days when he appeared.

The loss for Arsenal was far from ideal, after a summer where they've been quite active in the transfer window and added Ben White for £50 million.

After finishing eighth in the league last season they missed out on all European competitions for this campaign and they'll be desperate to put that right.

On top of that they also have the Amazon cameras following them for an upcoming All or Nothing fly on the wall documentary series.

The series will start with tears, but will it end with them too?
