Blind Date or Tinder? – The pre-QPR v Brentford Podcast From The Pub

Blind Date or Tinder? – The pre-QPR v Brentford Podcast From The Pub

A disappointing week for the Bees as they recorded only one point in six – losing 2-0 away to Cardiff and drawing 1-1 ah home to Burton.

The Beesotted crew gathered in The Cross Keys Pub in Black Lion Lane, Stamford Brook to discuss all manner of stuff from tagging players into social media conversations to Maupay’s miss. The Beesotted Crew’s near misses. They discussed their experiences of thinking we had something in the bag …. then to find out it wasn’t in the bag at all. Intensity was one description after a romantic liaison that got a little bit too much for one Bee who opted to duck out to a Brentford game instead.

After Burton’s parking of the bus they discussed all manor of obscure parking activity at football matches. They also discussed the film documenting Emiliano Marcondes joining Brentford  – after the Bees fended off Brondby for his autograph. They chatted to Paul Finney of the QPR Podcast about all things QPR. Plus they even interviewed a couple in the pub on their first tinder date.

Bees Stung At The Death – QPR 2 Brentford 2

Brentford once again contrived to, somehow, snatch what felt like a defeat from the jaws of victory at Loftus Road on Monday evening. The Bees had fought to build what looked like an unassailable lead in the West London derby thanks to a brace of clinical second half...

Everyone else in the world seems to be jumping on this Black Friday thing, so why the hell not here at Beesotted? Until Monday, when we will hopefully condemn Queens Park Rangers to the bargain basement too, you can get 10% off everything in the Beesotted 'Megastore'...

Neil Maupay has undoubtedly paid a big price on social media following his open goal miss at Cardiff on Saturday – the young French striker has been ridiculed for a gaff that won’t be easily forgotten by some – however, tonight’s game against Burton Albion offers the...

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...

    Great Blog …… Loved the Tinder sub agenda. Hats off to Burton … they played a canny game with the resources they had. Thought a few players were off their best but that happens after games like Cardiff where we played so well and the fans were brilliant (my mum says self praise is vulgar btw). We had a limited number of outside the box chances and we didn’t get them on target.
