    Happy 50th Anniversary

    Today is the 50th anniversary of my first Bees game. I can’t say I remember too much about it but there must have been something! We are having some family round to the garden today. Mrs OB thinks it’s just because we are finally allowed to meet outside, but I know that there’s something more to...

    Team for Stoke (away)

    Assuming that Pontus is out, surely just the one change ... Raya Dalsgaard - Mads Bech - Pinnock - Henry Jensen - Da Silva - Janelt Mbeumo - Toney - Ghoddos ... unless there's an 'away' formation.

    Team v. Fulham

    With Rico possibly out and therefore his recent switch to right back unlikely, it raises a bit of conundrum over who plays right back in the Carabao. Will Henrick be risked and have Dom continue at LB or another option ... Three at the back with Sergi at Right Wing Back or maybe at Right Back...

    Favourite Pantomime Villains

    I wonder who are your favourite players you 'love to hate'. I'm not talking about ex-Bees like Rowlands and Tarkowski who've blotted their copybook, but this opposition players who wind us up. I'm thinking of people like Lee Tomlin and there was a player a few years ago - Mark Yeates - when...

    Bees66's Funeral Arrangement

    I'm going to be conducting the Funeral/Thanksgiving Service for Joel next week. I met with Mrs Bees66 (Natalie) this afternoon and went over the arrangements and I suggested that it might be useful to pass on some information on here. The service is at Mortlake Crematorium, Townmead Rd...

    Cult Bees & Legends Vol 1 - good home needed

    In the process of decluttering I've discovered I have an extra copy of Dave Lane's excellent book. I shall be at the match on Saturday if anyone is interested in providing a good home for it. No charge.

    John Byrne

    I'm at a wedding reception where John Byrne (ex QPR/Sunderland/Brighton/ROI) is the best man. Anyone got any helpful anecdotes that I could use as an icebreaker? :)

    Ricardo Larrandart

    This guy - an Argentinian - apparently has a role with BFC. Does anyone know what it is?

    Goal Celebrations - I must be getting old, but ...

    I think I must be getting tetchy in my old age, but I don't understand some of the modern goal celebrations. I'm not talking about the choreographed whole-team efforts, it's the individual ones that I don't get. What is it with the thumb-sucking, the finger to the lips and - and this is a...

    Apologies if this appears somewhere else, but I was listening to Danny Baker's show on Five Live yesterday and he was suggesting an idea to raise money for Sport Relief. He called it Shirt of Hurt in which supporters were sponsored to where the shirt of their most hated rival. He had a...

    FA hold off on anti-homophobia ad campaign

    I've just looked at this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/newsnight/8508049.stm on the BBC site and I wondered what other GPGers thought about this idea of certain behaviours being unacceptable in the workplace, or elsewhere, and therefore why should they be acceptable at a football match...

    Ben Foster to Man Utd

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/s/stoke_city/4689237.stm It's a funny old world when MU pay £1M rising to £3M for a young keeper who has never played in Stoke's first team, while we get considerably less for Smithy who already had a track record and is now spoken of as an...

    Beesworld Highlights

    I'm new to Beesworld having been seduced by the £10 offer, so apologies if this is an old problem. I watched the highlights from Saturday this a.m. and have gone to look again and there are NO highlights listed as available. Is this my PC or Beesworld? Does this often happen? :confused:

    Sitting with the home fans when watching Bees away

    For slightly complicated reasons, I will be watching the Luton game with a Luton-supporting friend among the Luton fans. Do any grapeviners have any advice on how not to be attacked/thrown out or any stories of their similar experiences?
