As Ipswich visit Brentford, Charlton go mad and Solo goes home.

13 Aug

Finally. Match day at Griffin Park. Brentford entertain Ipswich Town with the smart money wondering just which of our players they’ll attempt to break this time around (hey, we may aswell get it out early). Charlton Athletic, already as popular as a Mexican at Donald Trump rally, have ‘gone again’ whilst, with Lasse Vibe continuing his quest for Olympic gold, USA goalkeeper Hope Solo has done her very best to make events at the Valley seem (relatively) sane.

First up though, we can only start with the Bees where Ipswich Town are the first visitors to Griffin Park in 2016/17. It would be fair to say that Brentford very much ended with the advantage over Ipswich last time around.

To read the rest of this article, season 2016/17 is now available for download on e-book in the retrospective: Welcome Home, King Jota (Brentford FC season review 2016/17)
Priced at just £1.99, all sales are being donated to the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust.

Likewise any sales from the previous titles – Celebrating like they’d won the FA Cup (2013/14), Tales from the football village (2014/15) and Ready. Steady. Go Again. (2015/16) – are also now going to the BFCCST.

Containing the least bad of the blogs from May 16 to May 17, you can pick it up, here. Its all for a great cause and,hey, you may even enjoy it…..

    So here we go again. My 9 month pilgrimage of the A31, M27, M3, M25 & A4 (for evening matches Im sure I will get to unvoluntarily see the delights of Windlesham at night). Bad back permitting, I am really looking forward to what the season has in store. Hopefully more ups than downs.

    For the US ‘socca’ player I much prefer her brother Han who is a bit of a sharp shooter.

    #BeeTheDJ is also back and I am aiming to improve on my 0% success rate of last season. In order to prevent further victims of the McCarthy witchhunts I have suggested protection in ‘I Put A Spell On You’ by Screamin Jay Hawkins. I think we should also all campaign to finally have Caravan of Love played as it is requested every single time!

    Surely we should save Caravan of Love for when we next face Gillingham?
