Newport – League Two State Of Mind

Oh. What’s occurrin’…? So then. Newport – twinned with Guangxi Province in China, there’s no province finer. We can’t vouch for that specific part of south east Asia, but we can for that part of south east Wales that is so often overlooked by the folk at Lonely Planet and Rough Guides.

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 […]

Harrison’s Half Hour

And so, with all the enthusiasm and anticipation you’d normally reserve for a Monday morning drive around the circumference of the M25 in a Austin Allegro, we return to League Two action this weekend. For now, it appears we must do the dirty on the mighty Maidstone United and see someone behind their backs – Cheltenham Town, to be precise. If anyone from the Stones calls, tell ’em it wasn’t them – […]
