Bring Us Sunshine. Please?

Morecambe v Stevenage: Let's hope this one brings us sunshine...

Bring Us Sunshine. Please?

Let’s kick things off by going into a trance. You are feeling sleepy. Very sleepy. Now, it’s April 2016. The madness of Brexit, England getting knocked out the Euros by Iceland and Marmageddon just aren’t a thing. Gene Wilder still walks among us. And, oh lordy lord, the Maldives are still part of the …

Stevenage v Plymouth Argyle: And now for something completely different...

And Now For Something Completely Different…

It’s one to tell the grandkids, at least. It’s perhaps even our generation’s own JFK moment; to be able to say where you were when Brighton U23s outdid Stevenage on pelanties in the Checkatrade kickabout. Now the future of the England team is all tickety-boo, however, we must return to League Two action. And it’s been a …

Stevenage v Brighton & Hove Albion U23s: You can tell how we feel about this one...

Oh Right, This Again…

Ah, yes – pray silence for the glorious return of a competition that’s going to turn England into world-beaters and earn Shaun Harvey a knighthood. The Checkatrade Trophy is rearing its fugly head for the second time this season. And it pours a bucket of cold water over any hopes that, somehow, our 3-1 defeat at …

Aging Like A Fine Wine…

Life begins at 40. And by the same token, it also begins on the wrong side of the Severn Bridge for Stevenage Football Club. The latest chapter in the life of this spiffing club is set to open, even if it’s a shame it has to open in Newport. What it is, however, is a …

Tony Roberts Gives Us A Helping Hand

It’s a week until Christmas but you’ve been good folk this year and that means you very much deserve an early present. What could be better than George Boyd, three points for Stevenage and Tony Roberts looking a bit foolish. The Sky cameras were at Broadhall Way for this one back in October 2005; the Daggers’ keeper choosing to mark a special occasion by over-egging a simple save and making a snappy camera gesture.

And then, in the 90th minute, he ballsed up a simple save to give Boro’ the win. Poetic.

Want more? Here’s Yemi Odubade taking advantage of another Tony Roberts error.

Boro's 2011-2 FA Cup run stretched to a fifth round replay at Spurs, where even then we dared to dream...

2011-2 FA Cup Run

In the absence of football, it means we get to pick and choose what we watch. And that’s good, because it ain’t always a laugh. The 2011-2 FA Cup saw us break boundaries as a club; reaching the fifth round for the first time. And then bloodying the nose of …

1996-7 FA Trophy Semi-Finals

Now then, who wants to catch up with a bone fide clash of the titans – when the 1996-7 FA Trophy semi-finals saw us take on Woking over two legs. We had a rummage round the archives and found this. It’s something to get you through the day, if nothing …
