Some Thoughts About Yeovil

“By 15 games it’s no fluke, it’s not lucky. They are up there for a reason…” – not our words, the words of Top Gear magazine Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson (remember him)?

Tinfoil Cups At The Ready

Is yours ready? The great FA Cup adventure is about to begin for another year and it is still a little novel to be starting in Round One, rather than the dear Fourth Qualifying Round.

A bit of Roman history for you there. Camulodunum obviously being the historic name for what we oiks now call Colchester. And like the Romans, last season was a tale of going and seeing and conquering. In a six-goal fashion. But let’s nip this in the bud right now – it was a freak result and it will NOT be occurring again. Just remember the 0-0 return fixture for proof […]
