Stevenage v Blackpool: The 8th-place derby

Whiskey Tangerine Foxtrot

For some, we’d bet the title of this preview seems almost like the perfect weekend soiree – albeit in reverse. It is a brave man who takes a wee dram, before ballroom dancing his way around the beer garden at Old Town Wetherspoons. But, dearly beloved, we have gathered here to run the rule over something momentous. Not once in …

Newport County v Stevenage: Let's try this one again...

It’s Newport, Take Two…

OK, let’s try this one again then – shall we? Just over two months since we last rocked up to Dave Parade, the weather is looking as if it might play ball this time. At least, we’d hope so. We’d rather not have to fork out another £6.60 to cross the Bridge for …

The magic of the FA Cup… isn’t our concern this week. As the gaze of most League Two sides averts towards the world’s oldest marketed competition (or something), we’re making up ground. Like us, Doncaster Rovers would have been twiddling the thumbs this weekend but for some surprisingly common sense thinking …

Portsmouth v Stevenage: All hands to the pomp!

All Hands To The Pomp

Oh, but if we could play all our matches on the road this season. To beat Accrington is never a bad thing, but to do so last week had an inexplicable charm to it. We can’t quite put our finger on it. It could be that, having stopped them gaining promotion …

Accrington Stanley v Stevenage: Expect some pure funk!

Accatak!

Wow. It’s been quite a week, don’t you think? After all, it’s not every week that you find yourself on the same side of the argument as ‘that lot’ across the county border. So, how do you cap a week as historic as this? Well, we’ll tell you – with a trip to lovely, lovely Accrington. …

Stevenage v Yeovil Town: No digging?

Yeo Diggity

An interesting week, by all accounts. Amid the rubble of the Toblerone fall-out and a foreign nation choosing a rather uncharming geezer to lead them, our woes are a drop in the ocean. Boro’ are out of two cups – achieving that feat within the space of four days. Mind you, you may agree that …

Stevenage v Southend United: Checkamate?

Checkamate?

It’s not the best situation to find yourself in. Boro’ face their second cup match in the space of four days – and, with it, the distinct likelihood that we’ll be out of another cup competition. Thankfully, however, tonight’s tie is only the Checkatrade Doo-dah and few will shed tears if the burden of taking part …

Port Vale v Stevenage: We're driving up with Withnail. You?

Port Vale and I

“Alright, this is the plan. We get in there and get wrecked, then we’ll eat a pork pie. Then we’ll drop a couple of Surmontil-50’s each. That means we’ll miss out Monday but come up smiling Tuesday morning.” Now, first thing’s first – when it comes to drugs, just say no. …

Mansfield Town v Stevenage: It's a man's game. As in Mansfield.

It’s A Man’s Game

Yes, it is a man’s game – this weekend, at least, for sure. And that’s “man’s” as in Mansfield; “field” as in Field Mill or whatever name it goes by these days; and “game” as in “Oi, wot’s your game?”. After the bitter pill to swallow that was last week’s home defeat …

Stevenage v Carlisle United: Go on, smile...

Go On, Smile – It’s Only Carlisle…

That’s right, crack a little smile there. After all, Stevenage Football Club did chalk up their first win on the road since the fall of the Roman Empire last week. Yeah, do it. Let it out. Are you familiar with the term “laughter is the best medicine”? We try to laugh several …
