Brentford 3-0 Aston Villa What a transformation! Just 72 hours after wimping out of the FA Cup the real Brentford showed up at Griffin Park determined to banish all negative thoughts of Saturdays’ capitulation. With Scott Hogan travelling in the opposite direction to his new team mates, on his way for a medical at Villa Park, the ex-premier league outfit took to the pitch in good shape, and playing better, recently at least, under the guidance of the vastly experienced

Chelsea 4-0 Brentford Ever since we beat Eastleigh in the previous round and were drawn with our illustrious neighbours for a second FA Cup meeting in 4 years, I have been telling everyone I meet that the games against Villa and Brighton, in the coming week, were both bigger games for us this season.

The magic of the cup! Although in recent seasons it’s been more tragic than magic for the Bees. When the FA Cup Gods came up with this fixture, a potential banana skin for sure, I was concerned it may turn into a Martin Allen media circus. However, with an upturn in recent performances and results and Dean Smith knowing full well that us fans would like to see a cup run this season, we took to the pitch with an

Update on New Road Gantry

After the Nottingham Forest game last night BIAS met with both Kurt Pittman and Alan Walsh to discuss the matter of the new gantry structure in New Road.
