image for Football world abuzz with London merger plans
Its not about the honey, honey, honey, they just wanna save some money, money, money

The footballing world held its breath last night when the plans were revealed of two of Londons oldest clubs to tie the knot and move in together, but not get married, because its not actually allowed yet.

Brentford FC and Barnet FC today admitted they had held preliminary talks and a full statement would be released in the next 48 hours.

A source with his ear to the ground revealed today "This is definitely going to happen. The clubs originally started talking because both clubs share 'The Bees' nickname, and Brentford want to use the phrase for sponsorship deals with the local bee-keeping community."

The statement will reveal more of where the clubs plan to play, but it is thought that Underhill where Barnet play in North London will be sold to swanky property developers, and the new team will play at Griffin Park in West London, as the ground has a pub on each corner, and fans will probably need to drown their sorrows regularly.

Brentford currently play in the third tier of English football, with Barnet one division lower. The new club would need approval from The Football League, the FA, UEFA, FIFA and Morris Johnson.

Barnet have always competed in the shadow of Tottenham and Arsenal, while Brentford encounter similar problems with Chelsea, Fulham and QPR. The new club could mount a promotion campaign to the Championship.

Bookmakers started taking bets on the clubs new name today - with 'The Bees United' odd on favourite.
