Don’t moan Bees. Look at Birmingham, Leeds and Ipswich

26 Oct

What a Championship Saturday that was. Brentford drew 2-2 with Bolton (or lost 3-1 depending on if you were watching the half time Zorb action or the main event), Birmingham City and Bournemouth shared 8 goals between one of the two teams whilst Leeds United changed managers. As for Ipswich Town, their home game with Huddersfield Town was graced with a visit from Clem….

Who's this with his eyes on the target?

Leeds an ‘end of level boss’ as Bees have a new ‘that penalty’

28 Sep

Leeds United came but Brentford conquered. It was another great performance from a Bees team who moved back into the top half of the table, past Leeds and within touching distance of the play-off zone.

Highlights of the game were plentiful, to the point where I’m really struggling to pick out a man of the match.

We’ve got our stripes back. What next?

As a Brentford supporter, I always have particular interest in Manchester City and their 5-1 demolition of Tottenham, at Tottenham, last night was no exception.

In recent years the Uwe Rösler connection has been the obvious one whilst, of course, this Tuesday was the 25th anniversary of the day that the Bees dumped City out of the FA Cup. I still get goose-bumps thinking of Gary Blissett performing heroics against the team he has supported since childhood.
