Crown told the club's official website: "I am honoured to have been appointed chairman of Brentford and look forward to working with the board and the management team to build on the progress made over the last two years and to deliver a successful future for the club and its fans.

"I hope to continue the great work of Greg Dyke, who played such an important role in getting the club to where it is now."

Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
