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 for Brentford 3-0 Wolves.
A bit of history went down in TW8 – Friday Night under lights at Griffin Park was like an West London Collesium where our gladiators were duelling with those stray dogs and hounds from the Bush. No changes from the Bees after the clinical termination of Charlton and their manager just six days ago, our mild mannered Brummie Head Coach Carsley showed on Halloween weekend that he is developing a ghoulish thirst for the blood of opposing managers by skewering
A last minute Leon header as a league win in a stupid amount of years shows that Charlton Away is not a fixture that brings us many points. But today it was a Happy Valley for up to 1800 Bees (according to the stewards figures) who had a right royal away day. Unchanged from the taming of the Wolves, we started a bit stiffly, Button to Tarky and hurriedly back, Button launched it loosely back it came, a shot across
BIAS welcomes Brentford FC’s action on ticket prices following our lobbying on this issue. With immediate effect, Bees fans will now be able to get the cheaper advanced price match tickets until 4pm the day before kick-off for every home match.

The Bees season spluttered to its first natural International break this evening after a 3-1 home defeat to the Royals. Our man from Anderlecht, Colin came in for Macca at right back as the only change from Burnley a week before. The first half was a footballing Rocky Horror, Marinus’ preferred formation of 4-3-3 was set in foundations of sand. Gogia who played the role of the invisible man well today may have well have taken a seat in the
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
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
Brentford started a new season and new beginning for Marinus Dijkhuisen’s reign by snatching a last gasp 2-2 draw against Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich in the 95th minute. There was a hint of new boy at school on the first day of term as Marinus strode out looking sheepishly up at New Road and breaking into a smile as he was welcomed warmly by three sides of Griffin Park. Three debuts for the Bees as Kerschbaumer, Gogia and Hoffman all started,
