We’ve come a long way in two years (as Bees have lucky escape)

30 Apr

As Brentford, Ipswich Town, Derby and Wolves prepare to discover which two of us will make it into the play off race on Saturday, Bees fans were given a massive boost last night. Despite a sudden rash of rumours sweeping Twitter, it was confirmed by Manish that although our clash with Wigan Athletic will be the ‘feature game’ on The Football League Show, Clem will not be at Griffin Park this weekend.

To read the rest of this article, season 2014/15 is now available to download onto Kindle (and other electronic reading device) in full. Containing additional material and even some (poor) editing, you can get it here for less than the cost of a Griffin Park matchday programme or Balti Pie.

Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, I need to make more space on the site for any follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further on.

    Regardless of the outcome, Saturday’s game really should be a day for both celebration and reflection. Celebration in all that’s been achieved this season, on and off the pitch. We’ve become used to turning up at a packed GP, engrossed in amazing games on a knife edge until the final moments. Seems like the norm now doesn’t it? But it wasn’t so long ago we saw Hereford fans invading the GP pitch to celebrate their promotion from L2 – at that point life as a Bees fan had rarely seemed more desperate. How things have changed, for Hereford too!

    Then reflection over the vision and talent of our owner and manager, who have worked so brilliantly together over the years to put a team of such quality on to the pitch.

    Sadness too, that these 2 incredible people will not be able to take us on to the next step.

    Also huge credit the backroom set up, in a different class to days of old – huge credit there too.

    Should the season end on Saturday we should give our appreciation to both MB and MW, and of course all of the team that make us BFC. MB has my trust and support going forward, he is one of us. But Saturday may be the last time we’ll see MW in the Brentford dugout – it should be our time to say thanks and goodbye to our finest post war manager – sure I’ll move on but for now his departure is a cause for much sadness.
