Tarkowski England Call Up Triggers Brentford Windfall

Former Brentford defender James Tarkowski’s call-up to the England squad for the forthcoming friendlies against Holland and Italy will be news to Brentford’s ears… for no other reason than it will earn our club a tasty financial windfall of around £500,000 – a figure that will double if he is selected for a fully competitive international for the Three Lions. Unfortunately there will be no similar payment for Alfie Mawson who became the second ex-Bee to get a phone call from Gareth Southgate today. Despite the manner of Tarki’s departure leaving a sour taste with Brentford fans – you...

Hand Grenade Found At Griffin Park – Millwall Memories

With Brentford taking on Millwall at The Den this weekend, we thought we’d look back at a couple of classic Millwall-Bees moments from yesteryear… in what is one of London’s longest running cross-city derbies. There may not be any real local rivalry attached to this fixture, but as you can see, there certainly is some great history between the two clubs. The First one is from November 1965, and became enshrined in terrace folklore… can you imagine if the same thing happened in this day and age? “The dead shell of a hand-grenade was thrown onto the pitch behind...

Bees Burton Win But Brewers Droop – Burton 0 Brentford 2

Brentford came away from Burton with a hard fought, but well deserved, 2-0 win over the struggling Brewers thanks to a second half own goal and a daisy-cutter clincher from Ollie Watkins. The Bees were on top throughout in reality, but it was a frustrating first half in which the visitors came up against a tough Burton rear-guard, and it was surprising that with so much at stake, and so much to play for, neither the home fans or players really looked up for raising the roof. Ryan Woods had three men marking him during much of the game,...

Brentford’s Day Dream Believers – Brummy Fall Out and Pre-Leeds Podcast From The Pub

A mere 24 hours after The Bees’ magnificent win over Birmingham City, three Brentford fans – Dave Lane, Marvellous Matt and Robin Hood – reconvened at the Prince Blucher on Twickenham to chew the fat over the previous nights game, have a little sing song, weigh up our play-off credentials and look forward to the Leeds match at the weekend. As you can imagine, we were all buzzing from the rousing 5-0 victory somewhat, and having studied the fun and games on social media, had plenty to say about the return of the three ex-Bees and the atmosphere inside...

Five Go Mad In Brentford – Brentford 5 Birmingham 0 (VIDEO)

Brentford produced a classic night’s entertainment under the Griffin Park floodlights on Tuesday evening – slamming five goals past hapless Birmingham City and sending the trio of ex-Bees back up the M40 with the sound of humiliation ringing in their ears. Goals from Ollie Watkins (2), Flojo, Neil Maupay and an OG tell some of the story, but it could have been double figures as the flowing football had the Blues on the ropes in the second half. Harley Dean, in particular, had a torrid evening and was singled out for the most grief… all three sides of Griffin...
