Wait for another lame excuse from the Brentford FC media team. They’ve got a book full of them.

I might be wrong but I don’t remember him playing for Hayes. I do remember an ALAN Cox playing in goal for Hayes int the early to mid 70s
Never played for Hayes but became a bit of a non-league journeyman ending up at Slough Town. Was an apprentice with us and was drafted in during 1979 season . Played four games and conceded seven goals before being ditched and we signed in an emergency Tony Burns from Palace. Remember seeing Cox's only home game, a 1-4 defeat to Colchester (Boxing Day I think) on a rock hard frozen pitch with players wearing plimsolls ! They were dismal days supporting the Bees and never dreamed we'd be where we are now.
Found this Wiki page on him:
Love his real claim to fame selling photocopiers and fax machines with Tommy Langley.

Alan Cox was a very good keeper who I believe only stayed semi pro because he had a well paid job. Could comfortably have been a lower league keeper. A bit later than mid 70s.

Very disappointing watching that stream that I’d expect from a non league club at least. Last time I looked we were in the Premiership and need to act like it. They seriously need to look at what’s produced from other Premiership teams. Not even a commentary FFS.

Everyone seems to have a go at the ticket office and ticketing systems, with good reason. But the media set-up seems to get away with it time and again. Some of those media staff steal a living with what they deliver.

As QPR were the "home" side, being played at a non league ground, I can imagine it was the right level for the stream.

I thought it was a really good performance from our lads. (only watching on Utube ) NYC full of running right through and pressed hard all game Took his goals well. Lewis Gordon always looks good to me and I am surprised he is not mentioned more. Cox in goal looked pretty assured. He seems pretty confident with the ball at his feet which seems a big deal these days. Didn't see their goal, but then again I guess no one else did.? Overall much to admire and signs of steady improvement.

The person in charge of deciding whether or not to broadcast the test card was busy this evening.

Was a good watch. Stevens and NYC stood out. Entertaining crowd banter + Phil Mitchell sketch in second half.

Not sure it was worth £65 though (if you include the ticket for parking on the kerb in Grosvenor Vale).

I played with Alan Cox..good keeper but ended up playing as a centre back (good one as well ! ) in his latter years due to an injury that prevented him from playing in goal...he ran his own stationery company.

I have watched this all through, and some bits several times, and I am still not sure, but I am thinking that Oyegoke was playing right sided centre back. Stevens was playing right wing back, but appeared to be playing all over the place. Oyegoke played a similar role to Ajer, covering right back allowing Canos to wander. As someone said earlier for the first half an hour it certainly looked as if Hockenhull was a lone Centre Back.
Wherever Oyegoke was playing he looked class, indeed I thought that the other two, Hockenhull and Gordon also had excellent games. Surely it cannot be long before Gordon overtakes Thompson for the left back bench spot, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Oyegoke pushing hard for inclusion in the first team squad before the season is out. I cannot believe that we are in for that Brazilian right back in January.
Zamburek was a little disappointing as I thought that he would be imposing himself on the game in a big way considering where he has played over last season.

3rd January 1977 home to Colchester. Lost 4-1 Andy McCulloch gave us the lead.
Freezing cold and peeing down with rain.
Only Workington kept us off the bottom of the table.

Yeah good report. I agree Oyegoke, Hockenhull and Gordon all had good games. Oyegoke looked impressive, composed on the ball, had a good run in first half too past a couple of players. Maghoma played ok, looked like he was getting his match fitness back maybe? He did one nice bit of play in second half with a decent shot from outside the area. Coombes did well up front, first goal was lovely finish after a good team move.

We did appear ’fluid’ all over! Impressive performance all round, in control throughout. I thought Zamburek was rusty, but gradually improved until subbed. Good to see Maghoma on the pitch again, and as Captain. NYC looks like the next No.9 off the production line, Brook was lively and Cox did everything he had to. Guilty of occasionally overplaying/carelessness, but that can be shaken out. Missed their goal, was it our mistake?
Lovely evening out, home in 40 mins, and always great to stick it up the Rs…

I met Andy McCulloch in the Braemar Road forecourt the following day and he was trying to fix a small metal race horse to the bonnet of his car. He was struggling so I helped him.
A couple of years ago he was a guest at Griffin Park and I mentioned it and he remembered the moment in time.
I had just turned 14.
Top bloke is Andy.

Enjoyed the watch on the stream. Thought the young ra ras were not very good, taking nothing away from a good performance from the young bees.

Thought defence was good last. Jan I thought did some really good stuff, but did look ring rusty. Wasn't helped by lack of understanding between him and forward line. I didn't realise Magoma was so tall. Thought he was impressive and NYC. Brooks had a nice touch. Fin seemed to be given a free role on the right and looks like he will be some player. Enjoyed some of our quality, but we did have quite a few unforced errors. Qpha lots of effort and were in our half more than us in theirs, but we had better quality around their box.
