    Random spotting of ex-players . . .

    Helping my brother move into his new apartment in Ascot some years ago, the guy next door introduced himself. It was Jay Tabb, playing for Reading at the time. There was only time for a quick "hello" as he was on his way out but he and my brother became friends and have kept in touch over the...

    Just watching the 91/92 Rewind that has just popped up on You Tube. Lee Luscombe on his debut v Barnet....what a goal that was. One touch all the way down the pitch finished off by a diving header from the edge of the box.

    Great goals

    I've always like this one...Jota v Norwich. A classic breakaway but, apart from the great finish, I liked that Jota was in the RB position, 15 - 20m behind Odubajo when the Norwich move broke down and still caught play up ....from 50 seconds....

    What miss by a Bees player do you remember most?

    Not sure why I remember this, but I believe that was/ could have been in the home game v Stoke in the 91/92 title winning season.....set up by Lee Luscombe (I think) who had earlier put us ahead with a great header

We arrived just after half time, we had missed a Len Bond penalty save but saw the winner from Jackie...

    BFC Academy Alumni

    Our class of 89 didn't do to bad but we never got similar success subsequently. From memory, Ashley Bayes, Kelly Haag, Andy Driscoll, Paul Buckle, Rob Peters, Marcus Gayle and Jason Cousins (I'm sure there was one more) all played for the first team and had decent careers although I seem to...

    FT: Boro(A) (Boro 0 - 1 Bees (Watkins))

    If you continued watching iFollow, you will have seen the Woodgate interview where he talked about VAR and that their disallowed goals were "2 yards onside" and "never a handball". After he left the interview area, the camera kept rolling and the reporters were taking the piss a little, saying...

    Managerial Thread 2018 / 2019

    Not the same guy but the Steve Cooper you mention not only scored twice for Tranmere in the 1991 PO game but also scored 4 for Newport in their 5-2 win at GP only a few months before we then thrashed them 6-0 in the Freight Rover area final I remember him coming on a sub in the 1992...
