Brentford were feeling chipper after swerving the potential banana skin aka Bolton – going out 2-0 winners to their Lancashire rivals. Reading were next up for the Bees.

The Beesotted crew were back in their favourite haunt – a very lively Cross Keys pub in Stamford Brook, Hammersmith – to discuss all sorts including:

Giving Bees fans the most-go tourist attraction venues in Reading for the weekend

Discussing the Bolton victory including debating who Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe may have been scouting.

Asking the question “Neal Maupay – is he back on track?”

Mature match mascots at Brentford – after the 38 year old Wolves fan who was made a mascot by his friends at his stag do for the Bolton match

What is Brentford’s statistical chances of promotion? – apparently it’s 20% at the moment

Reading’s form- apparently they were pitted at 18th in the ‘stats league’ when they were in the playoff zone last season. Have things evened out this season?

We also check out the Football Village News … including news on ex-Bee Adam Forwhaw and a new Finnish international B-team signing
