Winger Sullay Kaikai joined on loan from Crystal Palace until the end of the season.  Also on transfer deadline day, midfielder Ryan Woods signed a new four-year contract to extend his stay until 2020.  September After the international break, Brentford travelled down to the south coast to play Brighton & Hove Albion. In a hard-fought match, Hogan scored his first goal after racing away from the Brighton back line to slot home in the first half. Brentford's defence had to work hard to shut out the Seagulls with Egan having to clear a header off the line.
The Bees could not find the form they showed against Q. P. R. as they suffered a 2–0 defeat. Sone Aluko tapped in the opening goal in the first half after his initial shot was saved by Bentley. Button, who had left Brentford for Fulham in the summer, was rarely tested in goal. As Brentford were pushing for an equaliser, Tom Cairney scored Fulham's second goal on the break late into stoppage time to seal defeat for the Bees.  After the international break, Brentford travelled to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers. It was a frantic match with Hogan scoring within the first minute before Danny Graham scored twice in quick succession to bring the match into Blackburn's favour. Hogan scored his second soon after to level the score but a deflection from Dean into his own net proved to be the winner as Blackburn won 3–2.

The season covers the period from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017. Season review July Brentford began the 2016–17 season with various transfers. Captain Jake Bidwell joined arch-rivals Queens Park Rangers for an undisclosed fee on 1 July.  However, on the same day, Brentford also brought in three new players: Daniel Bentley, John Egan, and Romaine Sawyers after their contracts at their respective clubs expired.  On 8 July, defender Jack O'Connell joined Sheffield United for an undisclosed fee.  Later that day, Brentford kicked off their first pre-season friendly against Boreham Wood. A late Lewis Macleod header could not prevent defeat for the Bees as they lost 2–1.
Hogan's left foot finish high into the net from an angle made sure the Bees took home the three points.  On 14 September, Brentford travelled to Villa Park to face Aston Villa for the first time in over 60 years.  Villa appeared to be coasting to a win after new signing Jonathan Kodjia fired in a stunning curler in the first half but Brentford dug deep and, in the 88th minute, Egan fired in the equaliser with the help of two deflections to give Brentford a share of the points.  Brentford then returned to Griffin Park to face Preston North End. It was a tight match in the first half with Hogan's left foot finish after Sawyers' through ball the only goal separating the two sides at the break. However, Preston collapsed after Dean fired in from a corner. The Lilywhites had to finish the game with 10 men when Marnick Vermijl was forced off due to injury with all their substitutions having already been made.
Brentford will travel to North West Germany for a training camp from 9 to 15 July which includes a friendly against VfL Bochum on 13 July.  Brentford will also play a testimonial match against Millwall for former captain Tony Craig who had played 127 games for Brentford.

 Brentford's second home league game of the season finished 1–0 against Nottingham Forest. Hogan scored his first goal of the season after Stephen Henderson saved his and Macleod's earlier efforts. Despite going a man down, Forest finished the game on top, with Bentley keeping out a last minute one-on-one effort from Britt Assombalonga to secure all three points.  Vibe returned to Brentford's lineup in their next game against Rotherham United. While Brentford had played some promising football, they could not unlock the opposition defence and succumbed to a 1–0 defeat after conceding a dubious Danny Ward goal which had appeared offside.
Featuring a circular crest and a more modern, clean look, the design was loosely based on the crest used from 1972 to 1975.  Transfers & loans Transfers in Players transferred in Date Pos.

 A week later, Brentford hosted Sheffield Wednesday at Griffin Park. Wednesday dominated the first half and was unlucky to not be ahead by half-time. It would be Brentford that broke the deadlock first in the second half after a clearance by goalkeeper Keiren Westwood cannoned off the onrushing Vibe and bounced into the net. Both teams went down to 10 men after David Jones received a second yellow card for dissent while the goalscorer Vibe also received a second yellow card.
 Brentford's dismal November continued back at Griffin Park against Birmingham City. Despite dominating the game, Brentford fell to a 2–1 defeat after a penalty from former Bee Clayton Donaldson and a goal from Ryan Shotton midway through the second half. Blues' keeper Tomasz Kuszczak had a fine game with a string of good saves while Vibe had a shot blocked on the line. Hogan's header was merely a consolation goal as Brentford finished November with no points from 3 games.  New crest On 10 November, Brentford announced their new crest that would be used from the start of the 2017/18 season.
