After a week of nothing but Bake Off, could we sting the Wolves ?

23 Sep

What a slow week. No football for Brentford beyond the forthcoming game at Wolves to look forward to. Whilst our next opponents have had two trips to Newcastle United in the space of four days to (hopefully) run down the energy levels a bit, the Bees have had that 5-0 win home over Preston followed by, well, nothing. My Twitter has been wall to wall tears and questions about the Great British Bake Off (which we’ll get to, briefly, where possible new hosts are named)  and not much more.

Of course, Wolves will be in high spirits following their last league trip, that 2-0 win at Newcastle that probably surprised just about everybody outside of the Black Country. Indeed, manager Walter Zenga was quoted afterwards as saying, “the spirit of the team, how they approached the game, how they started the game, how they played is a big answer to everybody.”.

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 2016 to May 2017 along with a smattering of new material, you can pick it up, here. Its all for a great cause and,hey, you may even enjoy it…..

    These sort of games feel impossible to call. Then I think to myself this is Wolves away… Wolves! How far we have come!

    Loving the programme cover, although im not sure its something they can run with thinking about Fulham. What would they do? Portray a wolf walking into a public lavatory?

    I am the one person in the country who has never seen Bake Off. I just dont get it. For this im channelling the spirit of one of the greatest comedy creations ever, Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreation…. A programme where contestants bake something and some some other people go mmmm or eeeurrgh and then theres a winner, yet the audience just have to take the word of the other people whether something is mmmmm or eeeuurrrgh. The only cookery programme I would watch is the one where an English person shouts a lot at some dim Americans
