Bye Bye Ryan Woods? Why Alfie Mawson Never Had A Chance. Yennaris Going East?

Bye Bye Ryan Woods? Why Alfie Mawson Never Had A Chance. Yennaris Going East?
Spread the love

The new season is almost upon us. And the Beesotted crew met up at The Distillers Pub in Hammersmith – in a beach hut in the garden – to discuss all things Brentford.

And there was plenty to talk about including the rumoured courting of Ryan Woods by various clubs including Swansea. Will he stay or will he go? And if he goes, who will replace him from within Brentford? And from outside?

Plus the rumour of Nico Yennaris being sold has been circulating. But we have locked down exactly what club seems to be tickling his fancy by going on a stag do route of Eastern Europe before going farther East.

Then we hear it from the horses mouth. Alfie Mawson himself. Out on a night at the boxing in Manchester. His pathway to the first team was blocked – hence he decided to make his moves away from the club. But who was it at Brentford who blocked him getting any first team action?

We have a new feature – Games Gone! – looking back at the good olde days. When the game was absolutely perfect.

Off the back of the Beesotted poll, where over 60% of the 500 people who responded felt that The Bees would finish in the Top 6 – we look back at the pre season reviews by the podcast guests who reviewed Brentford’s last season and made their predictions for the forthcoming season.

Then we look forwards to the first match of the season with Rotherham fan Axholme Miller who gives us his thoughts in Five From the Hive. 

And the Beesotted crew give their predictions on the Rotherham game.

In the pub: Billy Grant, Dave Lane, Liberal Nick Carthew, Jimmy Mac.
