Holding Back The Year

Christmas is a-coming. You can tell that by the way the weather has turned a relentless shade of cold, misty and damp. And the FA Cup Second Round, which is surely as much our gateway to the festive season as Balham is gateway to the south. But we’re not getting involved with all that gubbins this year, having liberated ourselves of our FA Cup duties in Round One for the second time […]

The Final Curtain

Nearly there folks, nearly there. There hasn’t been a lot from the 2013/4 campaign to put on the Doovdé Highlights – it’ll be a shorter watch than Great Michael Warner Goals Of Our Time (£1.99, VHS/Betamax). And after spending a good few months somehow losing to sides doing barely passable impressions of third tier teams, we’d rather not have to go to the home of a team like Brentford. Y’know, someone good. But those are the breaks […]

So what better time for the ALOOT team to get back into the audio saddle after a small Spring Break? Host Steve Watkins […]

And On The Third Day…

We’ve already touched on the reasons why this fixture is as welcome as an arsonist at a fire safety convention. After failing to beat teams in and around us in recent weeks, this season is looking like it’ll have a deeply unhappy ending. Now we go to a side who made Hull City work for their place in the FA Cup final and who, despite being deep in trouble earlier […]

They Think It’s All Over…

It’s taken a couple of days, but we’ve finally dragged ourselves to the computer to accept that our League One fate is now all but sealed. We’d still have a chance if we’d overcome an average Colchester United, but we’ve been called in – our time is up. And the fat lady isn’t so much warming up these days, more signed, sealed and delivered to appear on the bill at […]
