Martin Allen

Position

Manager

Pen Pic

Martin (don't call him mad dog, he gets erm mad like a dog)was without doubt one of the most charismatic managers ever seen at Brentford.

He joined us from then non-league Barnet, saving Brentford from relegation in the 2003/2004 "great escape" season by getting the best out of players like Stuart Talbot and Scott Fitzgerald Senior.

The following two seasons were full op ups and downs but Brentford made the league one playoffs in both seasons, as well as reaching the fifth round of the FA cup in both

Martin knew how to work the media too, and hit the headlines for swimming the Thames during the cup seasons.

Whilst Allen's tenure will largely be remembered fondly, he was linked with numerous managerial jobs whilst at the Bees, and some found his charismatic managerial approach somewhat one dimensional.

He left Brentford for MK Dons but failed to get them promoted from the basement division. A brief tenure at Leicester city followed but Allen had his contract terminated by mutual consent after various run-ins with Milan Mandaric

In 2008 Martin joined Cheltenham Town as manager, but the team were ultimately relegated that season due to a lack of resource.
