Inside your Matchday Programme: Burton Albion

Behind the cover of BEES issue 12

21 November 2017

“With the fixtures coming thick and fast between now and the new year, the onus is on ourselves to put another good run of results together, starting with the game this evening.”

From the Dugout: Head Coach on Burton Albion visit.


“Burton are proof that romance in professional football is alive and kicking. Not so long ago they were a Non-League side; they visit us this evening during their second successive season in the Championship.”

From the Boardroom: Mark Devlin provides an update from TW8.


“Their surprise-package status meant that teams didn’t really know what to expect last year… this season they aren’t being taken as lightly.”

Hot off the Press: With Josh Murray of the Burton Mail.


“Every player we have brings different qualities to the group. There's always balance in the team which is a good thing when it comes to scoring goals.”

Here to Assist: With five assists to his name and a first Griffin Park goal during the 3-3 draw with Sunderland last month, BEES sat down with Florian Jozefzoon to discuss Brentford’s rich vein of form.   


“I can’t wait to rip open my first packet of World Cup Panini stickers. Could Andreas Bjelland end up being worth more than Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Joe Hart put together?”

Park Life: Nick Bruzon on the week that’s been.


“Fred Callaghan decided to run through a few set plays on a school pitch beside our Travelodge! It was literally a kiddies’ pitch in a primary school.”

First, Best, Worst: From sore heads in the South West to lining up against Souness, we chat to former forward Gary Roberts about his first, best and worst moments at Griffin Park.


“The Griffin is also known to movie fans as the hostelry in Green Street, an independent drama film about football hooliganism starring Elijah Wood and some questionable cockney accents.”

No Place Like Home: David Ohl on his love for Griffin Park.


“84 per cent of players who played in the Champions League Quarter-Finals in the last ten years were playing regular football at 17 years of age. The time is now for these youngsters, but which manager will be brave enough to give them a chance?”

The Last Word: Ben Burgess discusses an amazing year of achievements for England’s youth sides.
