    Boat to West Ham - Volunteers needed to reduce load on boat

    I'm really sorry people but due to a bit of a cock-up - and going at low tide - we need to reduce the number of people on the boat. We need volunteers (40 in total) to not go on the boat and receive a full refund. If you are happy to do so please send an email to with your...

    Bees United - Bees Fans Memorial Page

    I am sure we are all still in a state of euphoria after our incredible achievement of reaching the Premier League. Sadly, many of us will know of fellow Bees who are no longer with us and will not be able to share our return to top flight football. If you are a BU member, you may well have...

    First Team Goalkeepers 2021/22

    Apologies if there is already a thread elsewhere on this. I'd really be interested on peoples views on this (especially Thomas and the DoF :D ) Not surprisingly, Luke Daniels has now gone (as in I think that has been on the cards for a while) and we seem to have an array of talented keepers on...

    The "Brentford Model"

    With all the noise this week around a "European Super League" and the backlash it received from just about everybody this article from Bees United Chairman Stewart Purvis shows how fan involvement can and does work - and perhaps a reminder of how fortunate we are. WHY THE 'BRENTFORD MODEL' OF A...

    Over the last 6 months or so, John Scott (Membership Secretary at BU) has put in a huge amount of work attempting to reconnect with Bees United members who, for one reason or another, we have lost touch with - and to also ensure we are compliant with GDPR laws. However, there are still several...

    Is Craven Cottage our happiest hunting ground?

    I was thinking about this. My first awayday at Craven Cottage was as a young lad (16) on a lovely Summer's day in August 1982. We won 2-1 thanks to a Barry Tucker penalty and a Roger Brown own goal. Since that day (and including that result) our overall record at Craven Cottage is: P W D...

    Colliers Launches facing financial difficulties - can we help?

    Colliers Launches are the company that I use for the awaydays by boat. They are a family business and through the lockdown are facing a real financial challenge. They fall between the cracks when it comes to the financial support packages provided by the Government. The brothers, Danny and John...

    Train tickets purchased. £22 each (with a Railcard). London Euston to Stoke-On-Trent less than 1 1/2 hours each way. Yes, this could still be moved for TV but have booked via Trainline which allows you to change your booking. Support the boys at our last away game this season. COYB!!

    Boat for Fulham Away - Cancelled due to Date Change

    Me and my shipmates from BIAS are looking at doing a boat for the game at Fulham. Clearly this game could well be moved for TV (and there will be a reduced away allocation) so we won't confirm until the TV selections have been announced. Stand by for further details.

    Will the Club make a statement? (Derby player allegations)

    Sorry to bring this topic up again but I was listening to BBC Radio 5 Live last night and there was (rightly and understandably) a lot of discussion about the game in Sofia Monday - and the abhorrent racism. During the discussion, Curtis Davies raised the Duane Holmes allegations (thankfully not...
