With Fulham coming to Griffin Park at the weekend, the Beesotted crew (and Sammy from Fulhamish podcast) met up at The Hydrant pub right next door to Monument station to discuss last minute goals and all sorts.
On the menu for today was the QPR match – and Brentford’s soft underbelly which has allowed teams to continually score soft goals against us whilst in winning positions. Ian Holloway’s rant against QPR and Brentford fans. Dan Bentley – should he be dropped? Plus they recalled last minute goals that caused joy in some cases … and tears in the other.
Plus we spoke to Gemma from Brentford LGBT group LGBTees about the rainbow laces campaign being championed by football clubs up and down the country at the moment – with the Beesotted crew questioning whether the campaign should be getting more support from players (Twitter @lgbt_bees, Facebook: LGBeeTBrentford, Insta: LGBeeT_Brentford, Email LGBeeTBrentford@gmail.com)
Plus we discussed favourite Fulham v Brentford matches and look forward to the big match at the weekend.
