1942 Leagues Under The Sea – John Chandler RIP

  I was in the Navy during the War serving on H.M.S. Cairo (pictured above) when in 1942, Brentford played Portsmouth at Wembley, in the war-time F.A. Cup Final. I couldn’t attend as I was stationed in the Mediterranean around Gibraltar but my father went to the game...

The Great Brentford Song Scam

For years Brentford fans have constantly been evolving the songs they employ to support their team. Scientists and historians, such as myself, rarely take an interest in such forms of tribal worship. But, after being approached by Beesotted to take a closer look at...

It’s Brentford… Weren’t It

As I wandered into the Ealing Road Terrace with my dad, who had made the trip over from France especially to see a promotion decider, echoes of Reading in 2002 were ringing rather worryingly in my ears. Eleven years had passed since we had watched that fateful Cureton...

The Record Breaking, History Making Bees

  The 2013/14 season will certainly live long in the hearts and minds of all Bees fans. Mark Warburton and Uwe Rosler’s squad made what had been little more than a dream in years gone by into a beautiful reality. But, in order to fully comprehend what this group has...

Can’t thank him enough for making me a Bee

  It was over 14 years ago that my dad took me to my first Brentford game in a buggy. I don't remember anything about the game – considering I was just three months old – but, over the years, my dad has been taking me to home and away games to watch the Bees and, it's...

  1. BORU

    Please don’t excuse your “own goals”, regarding drink fuelled inappropriate language, on your podcast, by making asides on my character; my character should not be speculated on, because I venture a contrary opinion to yourselves and neither should you be so hypocritical, as to bleed off the flak regarding your foul and unsporting language, regarding an opposing team, by fake “getting on your high horse “, about my reaction to same.
    I don’t want to come to a pub to get drunk and talk repetitive propaganda, about how great BFC is, how great Benham is , and how I should “get over”, to kid myself, about Brentford’s non existent premiership future, Furthermore, you almost always cut-in , or disparage with mockery (as you do on your spiel here), when the “liberal” is trying to make (an often, very good) point about a game, or where the club is going.
    Yes, I am bitter about the despicable treatment of Warburton and players like Douglas, by Benham. You may reflect, by some miracle, on my words, in times to come. We could have had one season of glory, in the top league, but Benham MID-season, totally undermines the manager and by default, the team, when they were in a great position to press forthe top , by doing a Trotsky job on Warburton, which demoralised all of the front line of FC, put an end to that wonderful prospect and set the scene for the avalanche of players who have moved on from such a rotten setup.

      Where’s your Warburton now Boru? Sacked twice since he left Brentford. He and his team’s transfer dealings have been questioned by both his new bosses after he left Brentford. Many people believe he inherited a great team from Rosler who were playing the right way and he did a great job of guiding them to promotion. But he had a great infrastructure around him.

      Brentford have gone on to find excellent players after he has left. Most of which have increased in value. Meanwhile both of Warburton’s bosses have seriously queried many of his signings (Frank McParland was fired on the quiet a week before Warburton’s sacking).

      No distrepect to Warburton. He brought Brentford fans wonderful times. But your infatuation for him and hatred for the new regime is somewhat scary and warped. And is now looking also be massively misguided.

    You are just a bunch of cowards. If I am a keyboard warrior, as you allege, then arrange a meet up and we will see who is the bag of wind; you lot are!
    It is weaklings like you, who blow your little trumpets about “your charity”and your own feeble self – serving ego trip 1/2 marathons, that make modern life a degenerate facsimile of the brave, real men that lived fifty years ago and before , who died , fighting against the fascists, for you weakling losers.

      The Globe before and after home games, most away games,Ealing road/ Braemar during games,true Bees fans know who they are and what they look like,Brian I don’t think they are the ones doing the hiding behind there keyboards spouting bile and insults towards fellow Bees fans who have the temerity to disagree or say something YOU don’t like

      So make yourself known man and “IF” you do i want to be there and put in my two penneth.
