Bents, Sergi and the skipper all feature in the final issue of BEES 2017/18

5 May 2018

“We have worked extremely hard as a group following a tough start to the campaign and must now learn from the experience and move on – such setbacks act as an incentive for everyone and will certainly drive me on over the summer period.”

From the Dugout: Dean Smith looks ahead to the future in his final notes of the season  


“There is real sense of togetherness at Brentford, on and off the field, with a level of stability that many clubs can only dream of.”

From the Boardroom: Mark Devlin reflects on an eventful season in TW8


“It took Nigel Adkins a while to settle upon a winning formula, but he’s brought in Harry Wilson who has been a revelation and he’s had a few players come back from injury. He’s introduced a new style of play and it’s paid off.”

Hot Off the Press: With Will Jackson of the Hull Daily Mail


“15 clean sheets is a good return but I always want more – I never rest on my laurels.”

Between the Sticks: In the first instalment of a three-part series, Daniel Bentley reviews the 2017/18 campaign


“The best atmosphere since I’ve been at the Club was the QPR game at home. The sun was out, the fans were singing at the top of their voices and we beat our local rivals.”

Captain’s Duties: Two concussions, three goals and 15 clean sheets; it’s been an eventful season for Brentford skipper, John Egan. We sat down with the Irish international to discuss his 2017/18.


“I feel like I am back to being Sergi now, not like the guy that has been playing before.”

Forward Thinking: Having scored against QPR during The Bees’ last run-out on home soil, fan favourite Sergi Canós was put under the microscope at Jersey Road last week


“Every club I’ve been involved with – and there’s been a few – not once has there been any animosity between the keepers; as team-mates you’re there to help each other. Obviously everyone is vying for the number one shirt and no keeper will tell you any different, but if the team is doing well then everybody benefits.”

First, Best, Worst: From painter-decorator to Premier League keeper, we spoke to Simon Royce about his first, best and worst moments in football


“From B Team to First Team to his national team. What a season Chris has had. He really looks like a player who could go all the way to the very top. That goal celebration wasn’t bad either.”

Park Life: Derby victories, ground breaking, the return of Alan Judge and the emergence of Chris Mepham, there’s plenty to be positive about in TW8. Here, Nick Bruzon lists off his top ten highlights of the season


“Under Dean Smith, Brentford have an excellent Head Coach who plays attractive football and can improve the players at his disposal.”

The Last Word: Ben Burgess offers some grounds for optimism in his final column of the season
