Brentford Legend Bob Taylor Interview At The Fullers’ Brewery

Brentford Legend Bob Taylor Interview At The Fullers’ Brewery
Spread the love

Ex Brentford striker Bob Taylor joined the Beesotted crew, Marcus Gayle, Kev O’Connor and a room full of Brentford fans at the Fullers’ Brewery for the traditional end of year Bees-Up.

A hilarious evening in which he told of his partnership with Nicky Forster as one half of the legendary FT index. That infamous open goal miss against Huddersfield in the Division One playoff semi-final. His disappointment (probably the most diplomatic way of describing it) with Dave Webb’s team change for the Playoff final at Wembley against Crewe – resulting in a lacklustre performance and the Bees losing limply. Plus he talks about his time at Man City playing alongside players like Sean Goater and George Weah (for a short period of time) and describes the disappointing treatment he received from Wolves at the end of his career.

The event raised £1k across the charities – Campaign Against Living Miserably, British Legion, Shooting Stars Chase Childrens’ Hospice and Brentford Community Trust.


Check out the second part of this podcast from the Beesotted end of year Bees-Up featuring Brentford legend Kev O’Connor in the next few days.

The Great Brentford Song Scam

The Great Brentford Song Scam

For years Brentford fans have constantly been evolving the songs they employ to support their team. Scientists and historians, such as myself, rarely take an interest in such forms of tribal worship. But, after being approached by Beesotted to take a closer look at...

1942 Leagues Under The Sea – John Chandler RIP

 I was in the Navy during the War serving on H.M.S. Cairo (pictured above) when in 1942, Brentford played Portsmouth at Wembley, in the war-time F.A. Cup Final. I couldn’t attend as I was stationed in the Mediterranean around Gibraltar but my father went to the game...
