EFL’s proposed changes – “The Whole Game Solution”

The FSF has released details of the EFL’s proposals to clubs for changes to the makeup of the football league, including the introduction of a “League 3” and the reduction in the number of teams in the Championship to 20 – losing 8 fixtures from the calendar, including four home matches, and introducing a winter break. These proposals are known as the Whole Game Solution. The EFL has put together these proposals without structured fan consultation, and the vast majority

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. We felt the meeting was constructive and although we are yet to reach an acceptable and final conclusion to the matter we understand that, as a first measure, the black hoarding around the new larger gantry will be replaced with a clear perspex surround. BIAS remain disappointed that the club failed to

Mick C’s Big Match Report – Brentford 2-1 Cardiff

Mick C's Big match report

Last Tuesday visit under lights at GP until August and it had an end of term feel tonight as our old friend Russell Slade pitched up to visit one of his favorite clubs. KK got a start instead of Sergi and Josh Clarke for a sicknote Maxi Colin but other than that it was as you were from Saturdays roll call. Cardiff dominated possession early on as we pressed but only when provoked. They needed a win, had to win,

Mick C’s Big Match Report – Reading 1-2 Brentford

Mick C's Big match report

2,800 of us decided to head to the MadStad to finish off our Christmas in style. The Bees went with Josh McEachran for his first full start in the middle in place of Canos and Colin for Nico at right back. The first 10 minutes we were a little disjointed, Reading under returning coach Brian McDermott with no form had plenty to prove. We were too hurried on the ball and our midfield looked lopsided and disjointed. Josh was there

Mick C’s Big Match Report – Brentford 2-1 Nottm Forest

Mick C's Big match report

It was one of those spinetingling days, if the alcohol didn’t numb the senses pre match then the first day of winter at GP did as the biting wind showed a bit more teeth first half than the Bees did as Forest controlled the first 45. The tastefully named left winger No.15, Ryan Mendes de Graca toyed with Nico, he was young and talented but fortunately casual and wasteful. Oliveira twisted and shot from 20 yards to warm Buttons gloves.

Mick C's Big match report

There was a nervous twitch in the pre match murmurs, a six pointer in mid October between two of the bottom four, don’t be ridiculous, but as both the Bees and Rov’rum looked over their shoulders, the trap door to the League 1 backwaters were a little too close for comfort even after 10 games. Head Coach Carsley tracksuited, bald pate glistening off our new go brighter floodlights on this grey October day was pitted against Rov’rum’s 1980’s Man from

Mick C’s Match Report – Bristol City 2 – 4 Brentford

Mick C's Big match report

First Away Day of the season and Marinus must have wondered what awaited him in Ciderland after a pressing first week. Andre for the crocked Jota as the Bees lined up in a 4-3-3 formation in front of a vocal 900 strong away following. 2 Minutes in Ayling in midfield skipped past one, then two in our middle and passed easily to Kodjia on the edge of the area, their new 2 million pound striker took one touch, Harlee and

Setting in, Patience and Trust Required

Feature - Stars and Stripes

John Kenkel, our USA Coordinator writes about his views on the new season: “All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.” –Anatole France After what seemed like a decade-long off season, the boys re-emerged onto the hallowed grounds of Griffin Park to make another run for the promised land. Many thought that the instability of the
