The independent Stevenage FC blog


The Monday Rant was launched last week with the intention of being a weekly feature that serves to channel BoroGuide’s footballing frustrations at the start of the working week. It’s something we very much intend to pursue over the coming weeks and are sure there’ll always something football-related to complain about. In a light-hearted manner, of course.

The Land Of The Giants

Hartlepool first-team coach Neale Cooper gives us an interesting metaphor to ponder on this liberating Friday evening. “They’re like land of the giants,” Cooper told the BBC.

Maybe it was when ‘Arry was hailing our “fantastic lads… triffic performance“, there was a part of his penchant for transfers rubbing off […]

Glory Glory Night At The Lane

Well then. For 20-odd minutes at White Hart Lane, it looked as if Boro’ fans would be consigning their history books to, uh, history ahead of the latest reprint taking account of another glorious FA Cup triumph. But as Robbo’s tormented expression showed at the final whistle, this time it just wasn’t meant to be. The finer details of the match may be nothing more than a footnote to the […]
