‘Can we upset Vincent Tan? And no more JPT, man’. Is this a new Bees anthem?

23 Apr

If Brentford are the Barcelona of the Championship, then it would be fair to say that in musical terms our supporters are very much it’s Status Quo  (and in the case of Rhino Edwards, their bass player, quite literally).

The Beesotted crew have, of course, set the early season musical pace with their ‘Come on you Brentford’ single. Recorded with local band ‘According To You’, it is a remake of an 80’s classic, specifically to raise funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

But, hold on Beesotted because you don’t have the TW8 hit parade to yourselves.  None other than Billy Reeves and Bee Faction (who are also made up of KK, Horace, Face, Cit, Lons and Dai) have released ‘Hey! Championship!’ to celebrate our promotion.

This weekend sees one of the biggest London derbies for years. I don’t mean the Premiership scrap for the Europa League spot between Arsenal and Tottenham. Much as it is amusing to see the Wenger boys throwing it all away, that’s their issue. My attention will, of course, be on ‘El Capito’ –  the East v West battle at the top of League One between Leyton Orient and Brentford at Brisbane Road.

The game is a sell out. Not bad for a third tier game with a lunchtime kick off. But then, why wouldn’t it be?
