Stevenage v Crewe: Here It Goes Again

Stevenage v Crewe: Here It Goes Again

It’s the greatest sporting spectacle in the world and it starts this weekend! The best venues, athletes at the peak of their condition and unmissable action – it’s all in here. And how we’re full of anticipation now the long wait is finally at an end. That’s right folks, it’s the start of the brand new EFL Sky Bet League Two season and Crewe Alexandra are coming to town. If all that doesn’t sound like something you want to be a part of, there’s some kind of sports day thing happening in Rio too…

To get Stevenage Football Club‘s seventh Football League (oops, sorry – EFL) campaign up and running, it’s the Railwaymen who must make the first move. A move that’s 150 miles to be more or less nearly almost exact. And it’s as good an opener as we’d have hoped for. If you know your head-to-heads, you’ll know we haven’t lost to Cheshire’s finest in our six meetings to date. How much that counts for in the grand scheme of things – well – you tell us. At the very least, it gets us off on the right foot. No?

 

Stevenage v Crewe Alexandra: Start As We Mean To Continue…

Crewe plunged through the League One trapdoor last season – two years after we did the very same. With all due respect, it wasn’t much of a surprise. The two previous seasons saw The Railwaymen cling on for dear life, surviving by four and two points respectively. If mathematical logic counted for anything in football, Crewe would have stayed up last term by a single point. But, sadly for them, it doesn’t work like that. In the end, they were cut adrift from safety by an eye-watering 16 points and that’s worse than a swift ‘un to the knackers!

A quick scan of the EFL previews and inane blabberings of TalkShite pundits are pinning our tail on the relegation donkey. So be it. Let ’em put their money where their mouth is. If we are going to jump on board with bethut’s freebets as well we may, it’s more likely that we’ll take a punt on a playoff tilt for Sarlly’s men.

But a lot of talking is to be done on the pitch before we even start to see how the land might lie in League Two. All we have is the here and now. If the MK friendly is owt to go by, it’s looking like it’ll be an uncomfortable afternoon for our guests. Boro’ have a robust defence, a strong midfield and a striker or two who know where the goal is. It’s not a bad state of affairs with the season opener on the horizon. Crewe’s pre-season hasn’t exactly been wonderful, but how much can you take from friendly results? Not much? Aye, we’d reckon so…

Anyway, Stevenage v Crewe Alexandra – Matchday One. Here it goes again…
