It’s a absolute BUMPER edition of the Pride of West London podcast this week with loads of deadline day stuff to talk about and also being the pre-Stoke City podcast too.
The Beesotted crew met up at One Over The Ait pub in Kew Bridge – a stones throw from Brentford’s new stadium – to discuss the comings and goings of the transfer window.
Except the transfer window hasn’t really shut – the real closing date being Aug 31st.
Ryan Woods was a hot topic of conversation. He didn’t go during the window. But with the loophole in the regulations, Swansea City still have three weeks to tie him down if they want to via the rather iffy “loan with a view to buy permanently” rule as explained in this article.
Will Ryan Woods still be at Brentford come Sept 1st? Who are all these B-team players Brentford signed up this summer? Some look rather good.
We talk to bloggers and podcasters from West Brom, Birmingham, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest and Leeds about their transfer window.
Plus we look forward to the Stoke match at the weekend and chat to David from The Wizards of Drivel podcast in Five From The Hive.
