Ringin’ In The New… Port?

It’s out with the 12-year-old port you’ve been guzzling down your cheese with this Christmas, and now in with the Newport from the arse-end of Wales. Or ‘South Wales’ as it’s known in official diplomatic circles. True dat. The New Year is now upon us and we hope you have your resolutions ready to break before the weekend gets to us? Ours is to learn the piano. Seriously. Then again, […]

All We Want For Christmas Is Crewe… (A)

Now then, isn’t it better late than never – not least when it’s getting what you want from Santa for Christmas. What you really, really want. We’re talking something much more heart-warming than novelty pants and Lynx gift sets too. Three points away from home on Boxing Day.

It’s got everyone from Corey’s Mill Sainsbury’s to Broadwater Tesco in a right fluffery […]

It was all very well when it was us, but not so much now when someone else is doing it. Not that we can complain, however. And it’s now last week, so let’s just move on. Christmas is on […]

It’s been so long since we punted a football in anger that we’ve almost forgotten who turns out for us these days. Is that lovely Ray Houghton still in the middle? In truth, it’s not even been two weeks since we were on our festive rounds early; handing out gifts to the kids of Swindon. It’s hard enough to win on the road at the best of times. Going one […]
