Monday Lunchtime Stat Attack

And we are off and running. As Gary Smith so eloquently put it, “if you can’t win the game, don’t get beaten” – a decent enough philosophy from which to work from. Of course, it may be argued that Saturday’s game was a little out of the ordinary – temperatures that high are not on the cards for the rest of the campaign. But our brand new Gary Smith All […]

Under Starters Orders

Right, we’re about ready for the off here at BoroGuide Towers and look forward to seeing Carlisle United return home defeated once again. The season properly begins tomorrow – discounting the Capital One Cup game earlier in the week – and we’re certainly interested to see how the new-look Gary Smith All Stars looks in comparison to our contemporaries here in League One.

Clarkey was recruited by Paul Fairclough during summer 2000, having played at Southend in the three years after his departure […]

Boro’s Newest Star?

Since the end of last season, we’ve been searching frantically for something to fill our time until the 2012/3 campaign kicks off next month. Euro 2012 did, for a short while, grab our attention. But with the Russians, Dutch and Germans determined to torpedo our wagers, it waned our interest so we moved onto some cricket action. In that regard, the rain had other ideas. This summer has been more […]
