Brentford Red Is Rams Game Changer

Spread the love

Brentford forward Sergi Canos’s controvertial red card was a turning point in the Championship clash with Derby County at Pride Park – before the sending off The Bees had been playing brightly and looked in confident moody. However, the straight red on 25 minutes changed the changed the game, and two quick fire goals before the break killed off any realistic chance Dean Smith’s men had of claiming even a point.

Second half was all Brentford, but despite the majority of possession and a never say die atmosphere, Derby’s defence looked solid as always and it was simply too big an ask to haul ourselves back into the game. The seal was put on the Rams’ win thanks to a late penalty. But as you will see from the Beesotted video, link at top of the page, and by listening to the Pride of West London post match podcast (link above), fans of both teams were less than convinced of the referee’s hasty red and the atmosphere in the away end underlined that, despite everything, the away fans were pleased with the over all performance by Brentford.

There is a poll running on the Beesotted Twitter feed that is asking fans of both clubs whether they think the Canos tackle was a straight red or not. Click below to vote yourself.

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...
