A Love of Bees: Bees – A Long Distance Love Affair

Bees – A Long Distance Love Affair   It’s 27/9/2016,  3pm local time at Cancun Airport in Mexico, just about to board the plane home, and as luck would have it, I get a timely text message. My good friend Russell has informed me that we are 2-0 up at half – time v. Reading.   Ah technology it’s a wonderful thing but it wasn’t always like that, trying to get the Bees result in far off places. You may

Whole Game Solution – Bees fans make their views known

Our survey indicates that Brentford fans do not want to see the EFL’s “Whole Game Solution” proposals implemented. BIAS surveyed members and the wider Bees family after the proposals became public. The BIAS committee have already given feedback to the club on the proposals, and we will make sure the club see and take into account the views of fans given in this survey. The survey is still open so if you haven’t given us your opinion, it’s not too

BIAS are pleased to hear that this response included a summary, written by the club, of a selection of our and other fans concerns. We now want to hear from BIAS members and Brentford fans.

Whole Game Solution – The BIAS Committee’s view

The BIAS Committee object to the EFL’s “Whole Game Solution” proposals as we have seen them so far. Below are our views on the key aspects: Club v Country The BIAS Committee does not support the general premise that the success of the England national team is important to most football fans, and important enough to warrant the reorganisation of the EFL. We believe most fans, including keen England followers, put club over country. Financial issues While the club will

New Road Gantry – Apology and Compensation

BIAS welcomes the club’s apology, actions to reduce the problems with the new TV gantry and the compensation that is now being offered to some affected fans.   BIAS has been in constant communication with the Club about the gantry to represent fans’ views and get a good outcome.   We met with both Kurt Pittman and Alan Walsh on New Road after the Nottingham Forest match. This was constructive and led to the club replacing the cladding around the

Coping with the close season, how I Became a Bees fan, and other stuff.

After a long arduous eventful season I’m sure our players all earned their close season break, spending valuable time with their families, and like the rest of us reflecting on what had passed, and hopes and aspirations for the forthcoming season. Thats all fine and dandy, but what about us mere mortal Brentford obsessives; how did we get through the lull in proceedings. Well of course there was the Euros and Brexit . The former worried me little as having

Extension of the broadcast gantry on New Road

BIAS has been contacted by several members who have had changes to their view of the pitch from that which they had been led to expect. We have noted and welcomed Mark Devlin’s offer to allow unsatisfied season ticket holders to switch seats for those who wish to do so. We also know that the location of season ticket holders seats are important to them, so we have asked the club what else they are planning to do to resolve
