And it was a penalty. And that player may not be there by the end of the week as Villa are after him.

Just because I'm a bit of a nerd and was curious I looked it up.

Turns out there are such thing as red bees. Well sort of.

A species called the Red Mason Bee. Tends to live in cavities in brick work. It's actual colouration is more ginger than red so still some debate.

I'm off to be nerdy again.

Carry on as you were.

Now I also checked this out.

Turns out Red Mason Bees are actually Amber and Black.

I said there was a 30% chance of getting a London team.

Unfortunately we got the least attractive (no disrespect to Brentford but I've always had a bit of a soft spot for AFC Wimbledon because they've worked their way back up the leagues. That could have been us in 1993 - different circumstances but a bit of empathy. They've drawn West Ham at home AGAIN this season after the League Cup back in September!).

One man who will be delighted with the draw is Gary Phillips.
This Bee Legend also played many games for Brentford. He is Barnet through and through and TK should make him a guest of honour at the game.

And also Adam Devlin, guitarist of the Bluetones, one of my preferred bands of the 90s supports them. His twitter feed is always good value when they are playing, would be fascinating to see what he makes of the real bees.


When Martin Allen was Brentford’s manager and I lived in Ealing, I used to go occasionally with my flat mate who was a big Brentford fan. We used to see the members of Hard-Fi at most matches.

If it wasn't for him we probably wouldn't have kept our place in League One in 1993 after the very traumatic summer with the financial problems.

Hoppy is spot on. Gary Phillips is a real Barnet legend. Maybe the biggest for those of long memories. Selling Dave Barnett to Birmingham for £250,000 (?) kept us alive along with the Chelsea FA Cup ties.

Please TK, make it happen! :D

Will depend if he has a game elsewhere in his capacity as Academy goalkeeping coach at Crystal Palace!

I didn't realise Gary Phillips played so many games for Brentford - yes of course my annual Lester Finch nominee should be guest for the day, in fact, a statue of Sumo should be unveiled. I'd be quite happy to see a stand named after him.

So we must have many Brentford connections? Does Josh Clarke still play for them? Steve Kabba, Martin Allen, erm.. anyone else?

Imagine going to Barnet's first ever football league game and seeing us lose 4-7, then pop back to Underhill a few days later to see us play the fake bees in the league cup only for this to happen...

Let's not get carried away with this winnable talk.

We'll bask in the glory of Sunday for a while, be happy it will be sold out at The Hive for the fake Bees. And hope we put in a display like we did on Sunday - nothing to lose.

Anyone still got a sore throat?

So Hard To Beat was inspired by Allen’s managerial ethos!

Brentford-supporting acquaintance says it’s winnable for us.

I for one will be getting carried away with the winnable talk.

Quite right.
Let's get carried away, life's too short.
We can deal with any disappointment as and when it comes.
