Who Are The Brentford Misfits? – The November International Break Podcast

Who Are The Brentford Misfits? – The November International Break Podcast

 

Unbeaten in 9 league matches and a 3-1 home win against Leeds, Brentford went into the international break bouncing off the walls. The Beesotted crew met in the George IV pub in Chiswich High Road for a lively fun-filled beer-fuelled session to discuss Brentford’s unbeaten record plus loads more.

In the pub:

Billy Grant
Dave Lane
Matt The Allard Allard
Jimmy Mac

On the show tonight they discussed Yoann Barbet’s sizest spat with Saiz which went viral on twitter – when he measured his hight against the Leeds striker after the player gave him a wee dig. Off the back of that, we asked if any Bees had tried to take the p!ss out of someone and it seriously backfired on them.

We discussed the Leeds match and whether these Dean Smith winning and not winning runs are natural – or does every team have them?

We talked about The Birmingham Three (Jota, Colin and Dean) and asked whether it is now a given that some players fit in like a glove at certain teams but then can be completely the wrong fit for other teams – something that agents should consider when looking for a new club for their clients. We spoke to James Marriott (@JamesMarriott) from Sheffield Wednesday podcast The Wednesday Week (@TWWCast) who told us of a couple of players who were outcasts in their former teams but found their feet at Wednesday. Whereas one other was brilliant for his former team but couldn’t hit a barn door with a banjo for Wednesday.

We also discussed players who were complete misfits for Brentford (the shortlist of which is below) – and asked our listeners to throw in their input. We will be creating a Sherpa Van Trophy Brentford Misfit Player Trophy competition to find out Brentford’s biggest EVER misfit so look out for it on Beesotted Twitter (www.twitter.com/beesotted) and vote NOW.

We also discussed Brentford’s Boxing Day fixture move from 2pm to 7.30pm for the Sky cameras which has caused a huge reaction from a section of Brentford fans who are unable to now go to the match – feeling that Boxing Day evening should be a no-go zone for football matches with it being designated as ‘family time’.

15 min 55 sec – Fans in the pub after the Leeds match

21 min 57 sec – Beesotted crew talk Leeds match. Dean Smith’s good and bad runs, will Ryan Woods be the next one out the door? Were Brentford really that good with three excellent chances also missed in the game?

50 min 26 sec – We discuss The Birmingham Three (Jota, Dean, Colin). Is it a fact that some players are great playing for certain teams but then bomb playing in other team set-ups for various reasons. And shouldn’t agents be more aware of the possible consequences when they prise players away from teams that their players are thriving in when they suggest new teams for them? Plus we discuss Brentford #Misfits . Players who came to Brentford and just didn’t fit in

    Give an engineer a spanner and ask him to take something apart he be OK, Give him a paint brush and ask him to paint the Mona Lisa he’d fail. The same applies to players it’s a combination of ability being applied to a system, where their own particular skill set lies and what the system demands of them.
