Is one player a secret Eurovision fan?

29 Nov

I make no apologies for being late to this party but, if you haven’t heard, today’s Brentford – Wolves game marks a very special occasion. Assuming Kenny Jackett picks him (and how would that be for putting a dampener on things) Wolves Bakary Sako will make his 100th appearance for the club when they face the Bees in our Championship clash.

And what a way to recognise this landmark. The midfielder has commissioned a pair of custom made golden boots, bedecked in the club colours and covered in Swarovski crystals, to celebrate this centenary.

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 along.

Dear Wales Online – welcome to West London

5 May

Boo hoo hoo. Poor Cardiff City – having to travel to Brentford rather than Manchester United next season.And this is meant as no offence to ‘Bluebirds’ supporters but, simply, the obvious reaction to the numpties at ‘Walesonline’.

The Welsh website couldn’t have have written a more patronising, lazy and poorly researched article if they’d tried. Fancy that, having to visit Griffin Park next season. It’s here, if you want to see what they are whining about.

Let’s face it, a trip to Old Trafford is hardly a lifestyle choice for a team who have been fortunate enough to grace the top flight for a solitary season. I wish them well – genuinely. As a Brentford fan, I know what it is like to cheer on the underdog.

However, after years of trying (and don’t forget it was only a decade ago that we shared the same, third, division) Cardiff City finally made a return to the promised land. And then, promptly, left it on the first train back to the Championship.

I wouldn’t wish relegation on anybody. Moreso those that have to suffer the random stylings of crackpot owner Vincent Tan. But for those journalists who had just got used to the Old Trafford prawn sandwiches, get ready for the Griffin Park Balti Pies.

One things for sure and, to quote ‘Walesonline’,  “It ain’t going to be as glamorous”.
