The Preston Factor

It’s not the usual type of Monday. As we’ve not had to force ourselves from our bed at what can only be described as an ungodly hour, we’re less inclined to rant. Having said that, this Easter bank holiday presents us with the much-anticipated return of ex-manager Graham Westley. Many have been waiting for it. Now it’s here… After the “off-day” at Tranmere Rovers on Good Friday, Gary Smith’s Stevenage […]

Unwavering Optimism And All That Jazz…

The nation, it seems, remains gripped by talk and paranoia over the possibility of a striking crisis.

And that means an inevitable struggle for those lofty teams – like Stevenage, of course – against those scrapping for points.

Colchester Patter

“No regrets, Kit. That’s what they’d say” – We’ve decided to steal borrow a line from Neil Jordan’s Michael Collins for a reason, even if it’s not immediately obvious. It has no real significance except in its literal form. Taking on Colchester United tonight, who are just five behind us, gives us a chance to set a marker for the season’s run-in. Recent form has kept the points tally ticking […]
