npower Fanpower Stadium

Here at BoroGuide, we’re always to our bit to help advance the collective Stevenage cause. It is perhaps especially important when there’s money up for grabs – in this case, £30,000 could be won by the club through the efforts of its fans and the npower Fanpower Stadium. And yes, we’re aware this has been going a while. But better late than never someone wisely once said. If you’re not […]

Once More Unto The Breach

Turns out the G-Smiffy All Stars aren’t giving this playoff chase up without a fight and one of those “yeeeee-haaaas” you often hear in Harlow. Boro’ caused pain, suffering and a little bit of embarrassment to Yeovil Town on Saturday down in the West Country – now its time to come back home and apply the same treatment to Carlisle United.

And always in time to make a chump of the journo who thinks his copy is ready to be filed. Sharpen pencils, and re-write dear fellow… The […]

Nobody Likes Change

I worked for my previous employer for 10 years. I’d been through an apprenticeship there, learnt my trade there and was comfortable there. I knew my role inside out, knew everybody and had a lot of friends. Then the company hired a new manager who tried to shake things up and work “his way” and I didn’t like it. The reason for this wasn’t because I didn’t agree with the […]

The Preston Factor

It’s not the usual type of Monday. As we’ve not had to force ourselves from our bed at what can only be described as an ungodly hour, we’re less inclined to rant. Having said that, this Easter bank holiday presents us with the much-anticipated return of ex-manager Graham Westley. Many have been waiting for it. Now it’s here… After the “off-day” at Tranmere Rovers on Good Friday, Gary Smith’s Stevenage […]
