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

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
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

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,
The BIAS committee recently met with representatives of the Football Club to discuss a wide range of topics.
Mick C’s Big Match Report for Brentford 3-0 Wolves.
Whilst BIAS are a Brentford fan organisation, and are not FCM fans; we do believe in fair ticket pricing. Therefore we were disappointed to see the Brentford FC Chairman defending the large price rise for tickets to the game against Manchester United. BIAS have been working with Brentford FC to get a better deal for fans on ticket pricing and are pleased with the level of consultation we have with the club. That said, we warn against (and always have,
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
On Monday BIAS met with Kurt Pittman and Rosina Jones from the club to talk about next season’s ticket pricing, put forward the views of our members, and work to get a better deal for fans.
