Yes To Rainbow Laces. No To Long Ball – Bees v Fulham pre-match podcast

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

Plus we discussed favourite Fulham v Brentford matches and look forward to the big match at the weekend.

Play Or Stay Drama At Griffin Park

With the transfer deadline looming and one or two Brentford players having to make decisions about their futures at Griffin Park, we thought it would be interesting to delve into the brand new Big Book of Griffin Park again and contrast how transfer negotiations have...

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...

    Socio-political agenda groups, are now taking an interest in creating “problems” in sport.
    Any such problem, is marginal and is invariably an exaggeration or even invention of a “problem”, to give them something to moan about.
    Invariably, the in your face approach of these vociferous groups, just alienates and annoys ordinary sport fans, who have no problem with anyone playing sport.

      There’s clearly a problem if not one single player is confident enough to ‘come out’, that’s undeniable. And gay football fans ARE ordinary sports fans, but homophobia is an important issue – and as for constantly finding something to moan about – is that ironic or do you never read what you write? LOL

      As Dave says – we are ordinary sports fans – well as ordinary as your average Brentford fan anyway! I won’t get into the need for the group with you on here as it’s covered on the podcast if you don’t accept that answer you won’t accept this one here…. BUT you can’t question that the people we work with are ‘ordinary’ Brentford fans, there are too many years at GP and around the country to say anything different.
