Brentford favourite backs Bees to turn league form around as he recalls Griffin Park highs

The former Bee, now plying his trade at Wycombe, believes that things will turn as long as they keep the faith

Marcus Bean believes that if Brentford continue to play the football they have in the league then they will start climbing the table.

The Bees have yet to win in the Championship this season, although their general performance levels have suggested that they should have picked up more than the four points they have.

And the former Bee, now plying his trade at Wycombe, believes that things will turn as long as they keep the faith.

“From what I've heard and seen is they've been dominating games, dominating the ball. They've just not put away their chances,” Bean said.

“I'm a great believer that, over the course of the season, if the stats are good as they are then Brentford will climb the table.”

It was just over seven years ago that the Bees claimed their most recent cup upset as Everton were shocked at Griffin Park.

And it was one of the highlights of the Jamaican international's four year spell in TW8.

He added: “That was a great day for the club and a great day to be involved. Nights like that at Griffin Park are always special under the lights and I know there are many more to come.

“Promotion was a highlight as well. There are so many out there.”

The Toca Machine

Hammersmith born Bean was in Chiswick on September 19, providing a coaching session with Toca ball machines, which enhance a players' first touch and ball control.

And he admitted that helping young players develop their skills is a passion of his.

He explained: “I love working with kids. I've done it for a number of years now at different levels.

“It's not my ultimate end goal but it's something I enjoy and there's nothing more exciting to see them improve.”

There are weekly Toca football sessions every Tuesday at Chiswick School. U8s to U11s will be 5-6pm and U12s to U16s will be 6-7pm.
