The BoroGuide Opinion

Unwavering Optimism And All That Jazz…

The nation, it seems, remains gripped by talk and paranoia over the possibility of a striking crisis. Are they referring to the petrol tanker drivers, or the fact that Stevenage are without a number of their front men for the trip to Tranmere. We know which is more important to …

Dean Martin

Dean Martin is a lad that we remember rather fondly; a tenacious midfielder brought in by Dickie Hill in 1999 and played two seasons for us. Well – two-ish. That’s because his time with us was usually limited to the second half of a season. Each year, he’d be heading …

The Monday Rant: Groundhog Day

Another weekend ends, another Monday begins. And yet there is a familiarity about things at the moment that has entrenched us in this endless, repetitive loop of draws, late Carlisle winners and head scratching: Just how do we win?

Wycombe Wondering

It’s such a lovely day again, isn’t it? In fact, we just went for a particularly pleasant stroll in and around Hitchin. Yep, “pleasant” and “Hitchin” in the same sentence. Groundbreaking. While we were out, we caught sight of a butterfly. Its wings were red and white with a little …

Next Goal Wins…

This is a struggle. It really is. With each passing sentence, we’re thinking of a song title that could form the basis of a semi-humorous Slew pun. His loan spell had been meant by Gary Smith to give Boro’ a little extra punch in front of goal. No doubt the …

Colchester Patter

“No regrets, Kit. That’s what they’d say” – We’ve decided to steal borrow a line from Neil Jordan’s Michael Collins for a reason, even if it’s not immediately obvious. It has no real significance except in its literal form. Taking on Colchester United tonight, who are just five behind us, …

“Untitled”

The Monday Rant was launched last week with the intention of being a weekly feature that serves to channel BoroGuide’s footballing frustrations at the start of the working week. It’s something we very much intend to pursue over the coming weeks and are sure there’ll always something football-related to complain …
