New Year. New Cheer. And the Beesotted Brentford podcast crew have gone all adventurous in the New Year – abandoning the safe zone of West London to assemble to consume more beers within spitting distance of Smithfield meat market prior to the Bolton match – The Butcher’s Hook and Cleaver near Farringdon being the drinking spot. It was here where the characters discussed all sorts including the FA Cup defeat and whether Brentford fans should just not bother with the FA Cup any more if it’s not taken seriously like it was back in the day.
In addition, we ask have you ever changed your plans to make sure you don’t miss a super important Brentford match? We told tales of plans changed a plenty to ensure that we were able to see the Bees over the seasons including one un-named pannelist who avoided an encounter of ‘activity’ to see the Bees – reading out fans’ examples of their change of plan to make sure they were there cheering on their team.
With the forthcoming Bolton match being given an 80s theme by the club – harking back to the days of players like Bobby Booker, Francis Joseph, Chris Kamara and Terry Evans, we dug onto our vaults and found a few clips from Beesotted socials featuring 80s players.
Furthermore, we talk about the activity in and around Brentford at the moment including transfer gossip and the forthcoming B-team tour of Ireland that Beesotted are seriously considering doing a live podcast from.
