Chinese Takeovers and Patchy Pants – Norwich v #BrentfordFC pre-match podcast from the pub

Chinese Takeovers and Patchy Pants – Norwich v #BrentfordFC pre-match podcast from the pub

Norwich City host Brentford in the last game before Christmas and the Beesotted Crew met in The George IV Pub in Chiswick High Road to get some Christmas Cheer as they discussed Barnsley’s takeover by the investors who were looking at Brentford a few months ago.

Cooking as we discussed Billy’s rather left-field experience presenting a cooking programme for Lasse Vibe and Andreas Bjelland and we discussed what other left-field Brentford-linked programmes could he present.

They looked back at the Beesotted Xmas Bees-Up at the weekend – listening to clips from Big Bob Taylor and Kev O’Connor.

They asked which Brentford book you would NOT want for Christmas.

Plus they spoke to Clare from Norwich blog The Little Yellow Bird Project about Norwich City’s woes this season and whether Daniel Farke would be able to pull the team together and threaten the playoff spots at the end of the season.

In the pub:

Dave Lane
Matt Allard

The Griffin Park Invincibles

Brentford's impressive home record to date this year, despite several 'wish-we-could-have-avoided' draws against 'teams-like' opposition, is something we all hope continues for the rest of the season, however, the 2017/18 run hasn't got a patch on events from 88 years...
