EXCLUSIVE: Bees once missed a penalty! P.S. Still top of the league.

12 Jan

By all rights I should be ecstatic. But I’m not.

Brentford made it eight wins out of eight (40 points out of the last 42) whilst even though rivals Wolves and Leyton Orient also won, these were only their second and third victories, respectively, from the same eight game period.

The Bees were even pushed up to opening slot on the Football League Show’s divisional round up, despite Wolves v Preston – two teams currently in the play off mix – probably being the most attractive fixture of the day, on paper.

But it is another aspect of this BBC coverage that is making me redder than a Keith Stroud convention.

Just for once I’d love it if the Football League Show could make reference to Brentford, and specifically Marcello Trotta, without mentioning that, blinkin’, penalty.
