Who is Brentford's best ever manager will long be the debate for the pubs around Griffin Park – but can you name the only one to boast an unbeaten record?
The answer is, of course, Garry Thompson, whose one game in charge of the Bees was a 1-1 draw at Blackpool on a Tuesday night in March 2004.
The former Coventry, West Brom, Sheffield Wednesday, Aston Villa, Watford, Crystal Palace and QPR striker had been part of Wally Downes' coaching team at Griffin Park, and was asked to step into the breach when Downes was sacked, with the Bees staring down the barrel of relegation.
Thompson 's first – and pretty much only – task was to take a Brentford side which had not won in over two months, and which had lost its last five games, up to Bloomfield Road for a tricky midweek fixture.
Little was expected, but not only did Thompson's side come back with a point following a 1-1 draw, but they also took a 17th minute lead through a Stephen Hunt spot kick, before Ritchie Wellens equalised for Blackpool in the second half.
Not that it did Thompson's job prospects any good. By the time the Bees hosted Rushden & Diamonds four days later, Martin Allen had been installed as the new manager having been enticed away from Barnet.
Allen would lead rock-bottom Brentford to safety with a run of six wins from their last nine games, before going on to make the play-offs in both the following seasons with the Bees, and is still a popular figure today with Bees fans.
Thompson, meanwhile, appears to have dropped out of football and is believed to be working in promotions – his only other role in the game after leaving Brentford being a 10-month spell as assistant manager at Hucknall Town.
The Brentford line up in his one and only game in charge was: Alan Julian, Scott Fitzgerald, Ronnie Bull, Michael Dobson, Ibrahim Sonko, Stewart Talbot, Eddie Hutchinson, Matt Somner, Stephen Hunt, Tony Rougier and Ben May, with Kevin O'Connor, Stephen Evans and Matt Harrold coming off the bench.
Thompson is one of three one-match wonders who have taken charge of Brentford. The other two are Alan Kernaghan, who took the reins for the FA Cup exit Carlisle last December following Uwe Rosler's departure to Wigan, and before Mark Warburton's appointment, and Frank Blunstone, who having managed the Bees between 1969 and 1973, returned for a single game, a Division Three defeat to Gillingham in February 1984, between Fred Callaghan's departure and Frank McLintock's arrival.
As for Brentford and Blackpool, the two teams have played each other 40 times over the years, with the Bees having the upper hand in the shape of 25 wins to Blackpool's 14, and 11 finishing all square.
The last meeting was at Bloomfield Road in February 2007, when a Jo Kuffour brace and an Andy Frampton strike gave Scot Fitzgerald's side a brief glimmer of hope of survival before they slunk to relegation two months later.
