    Derby v Bees Reports

    Briefly as in in the car on the way home; that was awful. I went with few expectations and even they were not met. 2-0 flattered us. We were wide open at the back, utterly pedestrian, unable to retain possession, toothless going forward, outmuscled everywhere on the pitch and utterly devoid of...

    Fulham v Bees Match Reports

    There doesn't seem to be a match report thread yet. I haven't posted about football for a long time but it seems appropriate today. So no report as such, but for those who weren't there here are the Bees fans just after we took the lead. https://youtu.be/qFTdEdjqjMw I've got plenty more video...

    Louise Marson - My Soulmate - RIP

    This is the hardest thing that I will ever write in public but I want to shout from the rooftops about my beloved wife Louise whose life was taken from her in tragically cruel circumstances on Friday at the criminally young age of 40. Louise was many things to many people. An incredibly...

    Promotion Celebration Videos

    I'm sure that there are plenty of videos and photos of celebrating Bees that we would all like to see. Maybe it would be good to bring them together in this one thread? To start off, here are the scenes at the final whistle :bound::bound::bound: http://youtu.be/ZOey1SUl2jk

    They Can't Catch Us Now 2013/14

    We're nearly safe from relegation :bound: Notts County, Crewe and Shrewsbury are unable to match our current points total of 70 so the lowest we could possibly finish (without worrying about bothersome detail like the points implications of teams which still need to play each other) is currently...

    Carlisle v Bees Match Reports

    No need to panic yet but the pace at the top is relentless and whilst others have momentum we seem to have gone off the boil a little. Today's performance wasn't disastrous but we are lacking a cutting edge at the moment. A Carlisle supporter on the way out remarked ' I thought you'd be better...

    Carlisle v Bees Match Reports

    No need to panic yet but the pace at the top is relentless and whilst others have momentum we seem to have gone off the boil. Today's performance wasn't disastrous but we are lacking a cutting edge at the moment. The first half was a non event. A Clayton shot on the turn which went wide and a...

    Bees v Carlisle Reports

    It looks as though Uwe has re-appointed the same scriptwriter as last season. For Bury and Hartlepool then read Carlisle now. Two points dropped against desperately poor sides that we should - must - be beating at home if we are serious about finishing in the top two. Frankly we were poor...

    Gillingham v Bees Report

    We might have got out of jail but today should serve as a reminder to everybody who got rather carried away during pre season that promotion will be far from a formality. In order to finish in the top two we have to do more than play pretty football. For all of the pre match condescension...

    Franchise v Bees Match Reports

    And that, I'm afraid, is why, no matter what the table may still say, we won't be going up automatically and neither do we deserve to. It's all very well having the best home record in the division but if you are serious about promotion then you need to pick up points on the road too and...

    The Best Time to be a Bee Since the War?

    I've been a Brentford supporter for nearly 38 years and I really can't remember a point in all that time when there has been such excitement around the club and a sense of opportunity and potential for growth. Sure, there have been times when things have been good on the pitch but at the moment...

    Bees v Coventry Reports

    The best and the worst of Uwe's Brentford in 95 minutes. It was a sloppy first 20. We looked lethargic and conceded a poor early goal when we waited for an offside down the right which didn't come and their forward wriggled into the area to score from a tight angle, through Moore's legs. But...

    Bees v Crawley Reports

    Very well deserved three points. We were very good indeed in the first half, fluent, confident, playing with width and delivering very good quality final balls into the box courtesy of Harry and Shay. The only disappointment was that we didn't have more to show for it. Clayton's finish for his...

    The Matchday Programme 2012/13

    There isn't much else to cheer tonight so, looking on the positive side, the club deserves some praise for a much improved match programme this season. The over busy migraine inducing mess of last seasons design is gone and we have clean uncluttered pages in a readable format and the addition of...

    Bury v Bees Match Reports & Reactions

    Given our heightened expectations that has to be considered a slightly disappointing start to the season I'm afraid. Bury were poor and the three points were there for the taking but the old failings from last season prevented us from taking advantage. We were composed, solid and at times...

    What Should Our New Stadium Look Like?

    Now that the Lionel Road project suddenly seems to have taken such a giant leap forward, moving out of the realms of long term aspiration into medium term probability, we can begin to think seriously about the design and scale of the stadium itself. What should it look like? Should it be a...

    Charles Reep - the Brentford Connection?

    This is one for the hard core anoraks only. I'm currently reading Jonathan Wilson's 'The Anatomy of England', in which he claims that Charles Reep, the prototype football analyst who, as the main tactical proponent of the long ball game, was deeply controversial in the '70's and ''80's and...

    Yeovil v Bees Match Reports & Reactions

    Good first half, poor second. We played some decent football in the first 45, despite the blustery conditions. Sam's goal seemed a little soft, but Donaldson had a good chance at the near post and we were generally on top. Yeovil didn't create a worthwhile chance. Foresaw and Harlee in...

    Bees Themed Wedding Table Planning

    I'm not sure if this is in the right forum but the lovely future Mrs Garybaldbee has given me permission, encouraged me even, to name the tables at our wedding reception on 24th September after Bees players. So, I need to come up with 16 players from 1974/75 (my first season) to date in 1-11...

    Is the Football Boom Over?

    Being something of a sad geek I've spent much of the last 30 odd years studying attendance figures more closely than is healthy and its becoming increasingly apparent that the boom the game has enjoyed since the late 1980's (don't believe it when people tell you that it started with Italia 90...
