Leeds United Next Up As Brentford Sink 'Ten Times Better' Birmingham City. Pre-Leeds match Podcast from the Pubs
With the Leeds game approaching - but with the Birmingham game also upon us - the Beesotted crew took to the road to record this episode - finding a number of drinking establishments in the West Midlands who would happily accommodate our portable studio.
And in true Birmingham style, these venues proved to be ten times better than ANY other venue we had ever been to.
"This Birmingham Team is Ten Times Better than the Brentford Team that reached the Playoffs". Harlee Dean's words were still echoing around the halls of St Andrews when Brentford came to town. And the Brentford fans let him know they had heard him loud and clear on the night.
Billy Grant picks up the roving microphone and is joined by assorted characters including Liberal Nick, Streetboy Tim, Jim Levack, The Ristic, Russty Bee, Gerry the Cabbie, Supes (out) and many many navy more and they recorded in an Egyptian bar in Birmingham, the back of a taxi and a punjabi pub/indian restaurant a short walk away from St Andrews as they discuss all sorts in the run up to the forthcoming Birmingham and Leeds matches.
Plus we talk to Bik Singh from Birmingham City Supporters Group Blues 4 All (@blues_4_all) and Leeds fan Phil May.
