Featuring exclusive interviews with Dan Bentley and Peter Gelson, the latest musings from Nick Bruzon and the Last Word with Ben Burgess, we take you inside your first Sky Bet Championship programme of the season.
“Being so close to the away support during the week was an experience that myself and all of the coaches enjoyed - you have some very good songs I must say!”
From the Dugout: Dean Smith on the week that’s been and Nottingham Forest’s visit to the Capital.
“In the past, Forest have been passed off the park by Brentford; it’ll be interesting to see how they get on now they’ve got a similar mentality of their own”.
Hot off the Press: Paul Taylor of the Nottingham Post shares his thoughts ahead of the clash at Griffin Park.
“I was sitting by the side of the pool and heard splashing behind me. At first I thought it was someone messing about but all of a sudden I heard a choking, gargling sound from the deep end”.
Feature Interview: Dan Bentley on an eventful swim in Thailand, pre-season and his ambitions for the coming months.
“I do remember one particularly bad game when I conceded two penalties and put one past my own keeper!”
First, Best, Worst: In the first instalment of the series, Bees legend Peter Gelson discusses his journey from the working in the Post Office to playing at Griffin Park.
“For those needing their top-flight fix, there was the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday. Two points of note stood out. First up, a woefully unsubtle raft of pre-prepared ABBA puns the moment we went to the new format penalty kicks. Frank Lampard and team practically tripping over each other to get these out”.
Park Life: Bees fan, Nick Bruzon, returns with his weekly musings.
“The first home league game of the season reminds me of my own Griffin Park bow. I was fortunate enough to score that day and instantly felt at home in West London”.
The Last Word: Ben Burgess on the season opener at Bramall Lane, the Club’s summer activity and former team-mate Kevin O’Connor’s involvement with the B Team.
All this plus much more in a bumper edition of BEES. Available around Griffin Park for just £3.50.
