Wave Goodbye, Say Hello

Right then. Now we know. The teams a-coming to and a-going from League Two are now set in stone. With it, we can be at least 99% sure of who Boro’ have to deal with when the 2018-9 campaign starts motoring. Some are old faces, and others? Well, no. They’re all old faces. Not a single new one among them. Pity. A brand new away day would’ve gone down a […]

Shakin’ It Up Like A Polaroid Picture

In the end, the glow of our great 2016-7 League Two adventure began to fade towards the end of term. After making April Fools of Barnet, Boro’ forgot how to win. And that’s why, of course, the playoffs are taking place without the benefit of our valued input. You’ll no more define our season by an epic run that launched us into the top seven as those six final, winless fixtures that cost us a shot at promotion. It’s […]

Teddy Boys

The king is dead, long live the king! The arrival of June this week won’t have come as too much of a surprise; not if you’ve been keeping tabs on the Cliff Richard calendar in your kitchen. But with only 200-odd shopping days left til Christmas, the start of this summer (no laughing back there) also marks the start of the next chapter in the history of Stevenage Football Club. And that brand new chapter […]

Graham Westley: End Of The Road?

The little whisperers that can often be heard in footballing circles have, it seems, turned their attention to our humble abode. If Sky Sports sources are to be believed, Stevenage Football Club has been given permission to talk to an employee of West Ham United Football Club. Lord Eddard of House Sheringham (for it is he) is being lined up for a management vacancy that, officially, doesn’t exist at Boro’ […]
