How good is Brentford's player recruitment system, what shape are Brentford's accounts in plus Lionel Rd progress? (and MK Dons pre-match podcast from the pub)

Apr 21, 2016, 05:55 AM

This week’s podcast is a factual feast of information as we delve into the financial state of the club. the progress of the new stadium after the granting of the compulsory purchase order and the recruitment set-up.

The Beesotted crew met up on a lovely sunny evening at The Princes Head on Richmond Green to chew the fat … and discuss the state of our club .. as well as or latest unbeaten run.

Who scouts our players? Do we have a chief scout like the legendary John Griffin we used to have back in the day? How do we use the data to find players? Who else is doing the same as us. By the looks of things , most teams. All to varying degrees. But what happens when they all catch up and it becomes an even playing field when it comes to gathering information????

So we decided to have a little dig around to ensure that when we talk - or argue - a point we at least know exactly what we are talking about.

In the bar tonight we have:

Billy Grant Dave Lane Liberal Nick Carthew Savvy Bee Kyriacou Martin The Dutchman Holland Matt Allard
