Newport County (Away): FIFA 18 Verdict

One of those results, so it was. A 4-1 shallacking that, had our misunderstood FIFA 18 Verdict dared predict it, we’d have all rolled our eyes and gone “oh right, yeah”. That said, it’s rolling back into town after a one-match absence (Or is that ban? Ed.) for Newport County away. And let’s be clear about one thing before we call it all wrong again. You don’t need to pay £5.60 to watch […]

Oh, but wasn’t it written in the stars for all to see? That Dino’s first win as Boro’ boss would come convincingly at the expense of a, quite frankly, buggered Barnet? In the space of one Bank Holiday game, our gaffer saw us score more times against the Bees than he managed to during his time at The Lamex. That much ain’t really so important, but the three points were. […]

And, in doing so, this highly-tuned prediction […]

Not so much a bang, but a boo-sucks; this new era at the Lamex started still suffering a hangover from the fallen regime. The honeymoon period was […]

Colchester United (Home): FIFA 18 Verdict

It’s often been the case that our FIFA 18 Verdict has made it up as it went along. Not playing to form or type, it has taken the line that anything can happen on a Saturday afternoon. Now, with a new boss at the helm, it may have a point. It’s a clean slate in the real world; a chance for Boro’ to hit the reset button. And, for the […]

A Col To Arms

Go on then. Tell us how you’ll do it. Tell us how you can make “Dino Maamria’s Barmy Army” or “Red and White Army” into a workable terrace tune. It’s the one thing we bet Phil didn’t think about when appointing our new gaffer. And it ain’t as if some of us aren’t musically-challenged enough. This *blatant* oversight aside, a brand new era is about to dawn at the Lamex as […]
