Brentford have a host of former players and managers scattered about the Championship and most weeks a former Bee is currently scheduled to make a return to Griffin Park.
Some may have only been with the Bees for the briefest of periods, just one game in the case of one man returning to TW8, while others had a dramatic impact during their time at the club.
In fact, as things currently stand with the transfer window yet to officially open, on 15 of the 23 home games this season, Brentford will be welcoming back a former charge.
Former players' receptions can range from a standing ovation to hefty booing and the likelihood is that this will continue.
Below, GetWestLondon takes a look at the former Bees working in the Championship, whether it be on the pitch or in the dugout, and when they will be making a return to Griffin Park.
Scott Hogan (Aston Villa)
Hogan left Griffin Park in January last year on transfer deadline day, joining the Villans, in what was a club record sale for Brentford.
The striker, returns to his former home, where he scored 21 goals in 33 league appearances, for the first time on Boxing Day.
Clayton Donaldson, Harry Redknapp (Birmingham City)
Donaldson has not been a popular figure at Griffin Park since he moved up the M40 to Birmingham City, with Bees fans accusing him of diving in his recent visit.
That being said, during the striker's three years at Griffin Park, he helped be the Bees to reach the Championship as League One runners up.
Redknapp, on the other hand, made a solitary appearance for the Bees in the 1976/77 season.
They are scheduled to return on February 20.
Darren Pratley (Bolton Wanderers)
The midfielder, who spent a season and a half at Griffin Park on loan from Fulham, made 50 appearances for Brentford.
He had a long stint at Swansea, helping them reach the Premier League before joining Bolton Wanderers.
Pratley will return to Griffin Park on January 13.
John Mousinho (Burton Albion)
Mousinho had a three year spell at Griffin Park at the start of his career, making 64 league appearances and scoring two goals.
Famously, the midfielder went in goal for 70 minutes against Gillingham in 2006 after Clark Masters' red card. The Bees, who were relegated that season, drew the game 2-2.
Burton visit Griffin Park on November 21.
Tom Adeyemi, Kadeem Harris (Cardiff City)
Both of these players spent time on loan at Griffin Park during Uwe Rosler's time in charge. Adeyemi was in TW8 when the Bees, agonisingly, missed out on promotion in 2013, while Harris spent a brief spell with Brentford in the following season, helping the west Londoners to the Championship.
They return on March 21.
David Button (Fulham)
Button joined the Bees in 2013 and, after a difficult start, established himself as number one at Griffin Park as Brentford finished as League One runners up.
In his three seasons at Griffin Park, Button made a string of spectacular saves, notably against Norwich and Preston before joining Fulham last summer.
The goalkeeper will return on December 2.
Moses Odubajo (Hull City)
Odubajo had one season at Griffin Park where the Bees reached the League One play-offs. He joined Hull in the summer of 2015, helping the Tigers back to the Premier League but injury prevented him from featuring in the top flight.
It will be a long wait to see Odubajo back at Brentford again, with Hull not visiting until the final day of next season on May 6.
Toumani Diagouraga, Stuart Dallas (Leeds United)
Diagouraga left Brentford in January 2016 for Elland Road, making his debut at Griffin Park the following day, but was frozen out by Garry Monk last season, spending the second half of the campaign at Ipswich.
Dallas, on the other hand, has become a regular at Leeds and scored a stoppage time winner for Northern Ireland in a World Cup qualifier against Azerbaijan earlier this month.
November 4 is when the pair return to Griffin Park.
Adam Forshaw (Middlesbrough)
Forshaw was Brentford's player of the year as they won promotion to the Championship before he joined former boss Uwe Rosler at Wigan.
He only spent six months there, though, joining Middlesbrough that January. He impressed for Boro early in their doomed Premier League campaign.
Forshaw returns on March 17.
Tony Craig (Millwall)
Craig is a cult hero at Griffin Park, making his first return to TW8 since leaving for Millwall two years ago, and is likely to be given the best reception of all former Bees.
He joined in 2012 and quickly became a leader in the dressing room, captaining the side in Kevin O'Connor's absence. The pair shared the trophy lift after finishing as League One runners up.
A dignified player who always wore his heart on his sleeve when playing for the Bees and he will be back on October 14.
Alex Pritchard (Norwich)
Pritchard is, arguably, one of the best players to pull on the red and white striped shirt as his season on loan from Tottenham saw him at his best as he ran the game from midfield in the 2014/15 season.
His move to Norwich has yet to see him replicate that form, largely due to the limited role Alex Neil gave him, but if Daniel Farke builds a side around him, Pritchard will thrive again.
Pritchard returns on January 27.
Mark Warburton, David Weir (Nottingham Forest)
Brentford's hierarchy will no doubt be happy that this fixture is early in the season, on August 12, in the fact that it gets the fuss about his return out of the way sooner rather than later.
Warburton managed the Bees for 18 months, with great success with David Weir as his assistant, but departed under a cloud at the end of the 2014/15 season.
Jake Bidwell, Ian Holloway (QPR)
Both Bidwell and Holloway will be glad that a return to Griffin Park will be late in the campaign, on April 21, after enduring a difficult afternoon in TW8 last season.
Bidwell was torn apart by Jota, while Holloway, who tipped Brentford to finish in the bottom three and be relegated on live television, angrily denied that he did such a thing.
John Swift, Liam Moore (Reading)
Both players spent time on loan at Griffin Park in different stages of their careers. Moore was with the club in the 2012/13 season and it was Leicester recalling him at a late stage that was a factor in the Bees missing out on promotion that year.
Swift spent the 2015/16 season with Brentford and, although he impressed on occasions, his inconsistency frustrated the Bees fans, who booed him off against QPR.
They return on September 16.
Jack O'Connell, Simon Moore (Sheffield United)
Simon Moore is, arguably, a prime example of a player who left Brentford too soon in his career. He had a 17-game stint at Cardiff after leaving Griffin Park before ending up back in League One with Sheffield United. O'Connell found it difficult to break into the first team before helping the Blades to the League One title last season.
They visit on March 31.
Jordan Rhodes (Sheffield Wednesday)
Rhodes was signed by the Bees in January 2009 from Ipswich on loan and he made an early impact, scoring a perfect hat-trick against Shrewsbury and helped the Bees to the League Two title under current chief scout Andy Scott.
He makes a return to Griffin Park on December 30.
