Never Gonna Give You Up – Preston North End Pre-Match Podcast From The Pub

Never Gonna Give You Up – Preston North End Pre-Match Podcast From The Pub



Having rescued the points against Sunderland with two second half goals, Brentford were looking to the weekend – and a trip to Preston North End. This is one of the Beesotted crew’s favourite awaydays – with much off the pitch activity lined up to ensure that the football doesn’t spoil the day too much if the result goes the wrong way.

The Beesotted crew linked up back at the Cross Keys Pub in Stamford Brook this week to reflect on whether it was two points gained or two points lost last weekend. We discuss the Sunderland match and the Sunderland team . Positives around Brentford with the open training day plus we discuss Brentford B Team’s fabulous tour – beating both Inter & AC Milan this week.

We also speak to Preston Fan Ben ‘Rick’ Astley (@Astley_Ben) and discuss the PNE match and associated jollities.

  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...
