A Bad Day At The Proverbial…

The Football League Show isn’t a programme we’ll be watching tonight. Horror isn’t really our cup of tea here at BoroGuide and we’d sooner watch Saw 3 before we contemplate the  scenes of a quite disturbing nature that were Tranmere’s goals yesterday. At least it wasn’t full price on the gate, otherwise it could have felt worse. There is undoubtedly a great deal to forget about the visit to Merseyside. […]

Unwavering Optimism And All That Jazz…

The nation, it seems, remains gripped by talk and paranoia over the possibility of a striking crisis. Are they referring to the petrol tanker drivers, or the fact that Stevenage are without a number of their front men for the trip to Tranmere. We know which is more important to national security and in the public interest; sadly, it isn’t Chris Beardsley’s hamstring. If we’ve got this right, and we […]

Wycombe Wondering

It’s such a lovely day again, isn’t it? In fact, we just went for a particularly pleasant stroll in and around Hitchin. Yep, “pleasant” and “Hitchin” in the same sentence. Groundbreaking. While we were out, we caught sight of a butterfly. Its wings were red and white with a little bit of black. If that isn’t a sign of good tidings to come, then we’re packing our bags and off […]

Baby, We Were Bourne To Run…

The Boss speaketh unto you dear Boro’ brethren on this wonderful, marvellous Tuesday in March. It’s days like this we should be at the seaside, but them at the Football League – they have the seaside coming to us. But at Boro’, we don’t build our castles on the sand. We build them on the rocks of Roberts and of Ashton and of Bostwick. And maybe Laird. Let’s have a […]
