Brentford are on a run. Five leagues games without loss now. OK only two of those are wins but it’s a start. And with underperforming Sunderland coming to town, it’s a perfect opportunity for the Bees to continue their unbeaten streak.
Unfortunately, it’s never as easy as that.
The last time The Bees beat Sunderland was back in 2006 – DJ Campbell scored a brace to knock The Black Cats out of the FA Cup and send Bees fans into ecstasy. Short lived ecstasy. As a result, Campbell was sold to Birmingham City for about 50 pence.
The Brentford crew met up in The Tap on the Line pub right in Kew Gardens Station to shoot the breeze and psyche themselves up for the weekend – discussion the Millwall win the weekend before. The hilarious Bob Booker social that preceded the Millwall match. We had a look back at the predictions Championship fans made at the beginning of the season to see who was right and who was way off. And we speak to Sobsy from A Lover Supreme Sunderland Fanzine about all things Sunderland.
