A row has broken out prior to the Brentford v Barnet FA Cup replay over Barnet’s ticket allocation. Under FA rules Barnet are entitled to a minimum of 15% of tickets available.
Unfortunately Brentford have only given Barnet 1,500 tickets whereas they are entitled to around 2,000. Brentford have given the ghastly mantra of “Health & Safety” as the reason for failing to fulfil their obligation.
Furthermore the Brentford chairman is also chair of the FA’s FA Cup committee. Barnet chairman Tony Kleanthous has written a very strong piece on barnetfc.com which is worth reading. He also references the dive by Ollie Watkins in the first leg which won Brentford a ridiculous penalty.
The only thing that stops clubs running amok in football are rules & regulations. But when these are flouted it creates a nasty taste. Hopefully Barnet can send Brentford packing on Tuesday evening. Unlikely, but it is the greatest domestic cup competition in the world.
