Robins In Da Hood


…and so it’s all coming down to this, a match that Boro’ must win and hope other results play ball! Nothing has changed much since last weekend. There’s a two-point gap to make up between us and the playoffs, and about a billion clubs ready to pounce if Newport or Exeter naff it up. Start thinking about the last-minute winners and equalisers we’ve conceded over the course of the season […]

From Stags To Riches?


For 10-or-so minutes on Easter Monday, we’d put ourselves in the box seat. Getting in front against Exeter had lifted us into the top seven for the first time since we can’t remember when. Then the Grecians spoiled it all by doing something stupid like score too. It’s a bit annoying that other results went our way ‘n’ all. But nowt much has changed in the grand scheme of things. […]

Vale Force


Big weekend, innit. Our hopes of making the playoffs died, and then – on the third game – came back again like some sort of miracle. What’s that all about? If only there was some metaphor we could make of it. Y’know, such as a religious festival we could compare it to? Or that sort of thing perhaps? For our sins then, it’s off to Stoke’s second team we go. […]

Reach Out (Carlisle Be There)


Five games left, then. And, sure, didn’t the lads learn a lesson from being carted off to Grimsby after the Notts County debacle? Three points for us, two goals for Kurtis and one happy set of fans at 5pm last Saturday. Now, for the tricky part: a repeat performance that does the trick against a Carlisle side who (we’re guessing) set off from the North on Tuesday morning to make […]

It’s Grims O’Clock


Well, it’s been an exhaustive investigation. And it’s been a drain on the public purse. But we have no evidence that last week’s result against Notts County was an elaborate and early April Fool’s jape. Sorry about that. It’s as you thought. Just a piss-poor day at the office that (finally) killed off the idea we might somehow make the playoffs this term. At least it was clear. Didn’t be […]

Tied Up In Notts…


From last week to this, it’s one relegation straggler to another for Boro’. And it’s a bit of a downgrade too; our guests propping up the League Two table and that. In some ways, we did ’em a favour last week by holding the Silkmen of Macclesfield to a score draw. But we didn’t exactly do ourselves a favour by letting in another goal in stoppage time. Yet. Again. Two […]
