Yes To Rainbow Laces. No To Long Ball – Bees v Fulham pre-match podcast
Spread the love

With Fulham coming to Griffin Park at the weekend, the Beesotted crew (and Sammy from Fulhamish podcast) met up at The Hydrant pub right next door to Monument station to discuss last minute goals and all sorts.

On the menu for today was the QPR match – and Brentford’s soft underbelly which has allowed teams to continually score soft goals against us whilst in winning positions. Ian Holloway’s rant against QPR and Brentford fans. Dan Bentley – should he be dropped? Plus they recalled last minute goals that caused joy in some cases … and tears in the other.

Plus we spoke to Gemma from Brentford LGBT group LGBTees about the rainbow laces campaign being championed by football clubs up and down the country at the moment – with the Beesotted crew questioning whether the campaign should be getting more support from players (Twitter @lgbt_bees, Facebook: LGBeeTBrentford, Insta: LGBeeT_Brentford, Email [email protected])

Plus we discussed favourite Fulham v Brentford matches and look forward to the big match at the weekend.

The Bee Job Question

The Bee Job Question

Three weeks ago I had a job interview. An interview for a job I was actually quite interested in, rather than just being a way out of the harrowingly dull, underachieving job I have at the moment. I have by me now the letter that arrived today, which will tell me...

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...

  1. BORU

    Socio-political agenda groups, are now taking an interest in creating “problems” in sport.
    Any such problem, is marginal and is invariably an exaggeration or even invention of a “problem”, to give them something to moan about.
    Invariably, the in your face approach of these vociferous groups, just alienates and annoys ordinary sport fans, who have no problem with anyone playing sport.

    • Dave Lane

      There’s clearly a problem if not one single player is confident enough to ‘come out’, that’s undeniable. And gay football fans ARE ordinary sports fans, but homophobia is an important issue – and as for constantly finding something to moan about – is that ironic or do you never read what you write? LOL

    • LGbEEts

      As Dave says – we are ordinary sports fans – well as ordinary as your average Brentford fan anyway! I won’t get into the need for the group with you on here as it’s covered on the podcast if you don’t accept that answer you won’t accept this one here…. BUT you can’t question that the people we work with are ‘ordinary’ Brentford fans, there are too many years at GP and around the country to say anything different.
