Who Are The Brentford Misfits? - The November International Break Podcast
Unbeaten in 9 league matches and a 3-1 home win against Leeds, Brentford went into the international break bouncing off the walls. The Beesotted crew met in the George IV pub in Chiswich High Road to discuss Brentford’s unbeaten record plus loads more.
In the pub:
Matt The Allard Allard
On the show tonight they discussed Yoann Barbet’s sizest spat with Saiz which went viral on twitter - when he measured his hight against the Leeds striker after the player gave him a wee dig. Off the back of that, we asked if any Bees had tried to take the p!ss out of someone and it seriously backfired on them.
We discussed the Leeds match and whether these Dean Smith winning and not winning runs are natural - or does every team have them?
We talked about The Birmingham Three (Jota, Colin and Dean) and asked whether it is now a given that some players fit in certain teams but are completely the wrong fit for other teams. We spoke to James Marriott for Sheffield Wednesday podcast the Wednesday Week who told us of a couple of players who were outcasts in their former teams but fitted in like a glove for Wednesday. Whereas one other was brilliant for his team but couldn’t hit a barn door with a banjo for Wednesday.
We also discussed players who were complete misfits for Brentford - and asked our listeners to throw in their input. We will be creating a Sherpa Van Trophy Brentford misfit player competition over the next few days so look out for it on Beesotted twitter (www.twitter.com/beesotted) and vote.
We also discussed Brentford’s Boxing Day fixture move from 2pm to 7.30pm for the Sky cameras which has caused a huge reaction from a section of Brentford fans who are unable to now go to the match - feeling that Boxing Day evening should be a no-go zone for football matches with it being designated as ‘family time’.

Is it a fact that some players are great playing for certain teams but then bomb playing in other team set-ups for various reasons.
