Inside your Matchday Programme: Bristol City

It's back to the 60's for Wednesday night's edition

2 October 2019

Here's everything to look forward to in this week's edition of the Matchday Programme, heading back to 1960 and featuring our Kurupt FM takeover.

From the Field: Henrik Dalsgaard welcomes you to Griffin Park as The Bees go in search of a second win from three games.

"Barnsley caught us a bit by surprise and scored really early, but our reaction was great. We weathered the storm for a while then started clicking into gear."

In Profile, The Terrible Twins: The unstoppable strike force that was Jim Towers and George Francis are the focus for Dan Long.

"Jim was a big, burly battering ram with sleeked-back straight hair, while George was a slim, wiry guy with a curly thatch.” Contrasting appearances and contrasting styles that just worked."

My Brentford Story, Ian Westbrook: 48 years after he came to his very first Brentford game at Griffin Park, Ian shares some of his favourite memories of his second home.

"I’ll miss my routine. Parking by the Ealing Park Tavern, walking over to the ground, and going through the same turnstile every game. Me and my dad would always go through number 12, which is now number 10, even if there was a queue outside."

Hot Off The Press: "City haven’t really had a striker who’s had the pace, power and movement to make the most of Palmer’s vision and passing. That was probably one of the most promising things this season and it’s been ripped away, unfortunately." Gregor MacGregor shares the Bristol perspective.

Brentford Women: "My favourite memory was playing for the Thomas University soccer team when we beat Keiser University. They were unbeaten in our conference league and ranked number one, winning that was special." Rebekah Wiltshere describes her time playing football across the pond.

Park Life: "The most excited you can get is about the surreal feeling of seeing Jota score past David Button." Nick Bruzon pulls no punches when examining his relationship with cup competitions.


Also inside: Read all about the First Round of the London FA Senior Cup with Brentford B, Thomas Frank addresses the last fortnight in From The Dugout and revisit the 1960-61 season with Rob Jex our Bees Historian.
