Psycho killers. Bees run, run, run away with it.

5 Nov

Brentford picked up where they left off on Saturday with another fine win over East Midlands opposition. Nottingham Forest were put to the sword in even more emphatic style than local rivals Derby County had been at the weekend.

For those fortunate enough to travel, there was plenty to celebrate.

The best way to prepare for Forest – goals, goals, goals

5 Nov

Brentford travel to Nottingham Forest tonight, knowing victory will see us overtake the one-time Championship leaders. With Forest not winning a game since they humiliated Fulham 5-3 back in late September, the Bees have every right to be optimistic.

Tangerine dream becomes a Halloween nightmare.

You have to feel for Blackpool supporters. With chairman Karl Oyston doing his best to make friends and influence people, the visit of play off chasing Ipswich Town on Saturday coincided with the arrival of new manager, Lee Clark. And where new managers and controversial owners go, Clem from the Football League show is sure to follow.

The ultimate game of two halves as Rams, raided

1 Nov

What. A. Game ! Brentford took a deserved three points as a stunning second half performance saw them run out 2-1 winners over Championship leaders Derby County. Steve McClaren’s Rams were blown away like an umbrella caught in a hurricane as the Bees recorded victory after an emphatic team performance.

Redemption? From what? Dear media, please Trot on!

25 Jan

What a great sight to wake up to.

Brentford’s table topping victory over Gillingham last night made it 14 wins out of 16 and, as hoped for yesterday, takes us 7 (seven) points clear of third placed Wolves.

Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade, guesting for Sky, could only watch on helplessly as his side were pushed down to second place by a Bees outfit still decimated by injury but still as solid a team as you could hope to see – regardless of who is filling those eleven red and white shirts.

As if to demonstrate, look where the goals came from. First up, Jonathan Douglas. Leaping in the six-yard box, he was mid-air as he stroked home Jake Bidwell’s cross with the Gill’s defence parting like the Red Sea. It was certainly an unusual position for the holding midfielder to find himself in – so much so that four of my group reacted, simultaneously, with the question, “ Was THAT Dougie?”

Ninety yards away on the Ealing Road terrace we couldn’t quite be sure until he wheeled away but, oh yes, it was!

Are the Wolf Pack suffering a relegation hangover? Brentford stay top.

4 Jan

Has sport gone crazy?  Brentford are still at the top of League One after Wolves lost at Gillingham last night.

That can’t be correct but I watched the game on Sky. I’m sure I saw Bees fan Natalie Sawyer doing an admirable job in remaining neutral as Wolves , the former league leaders, were beaten by Brentford old boys.

Then I got out of bed at 5.30 this morning to see England (the cricketing equivalent of Wolves?) are being beaten once more by Australia. Sport isn’t ‘broken’
