Carlisle United v Stevenage: Carlisle See You When You Get There...

Carlisle See You When You Get There…

Now we’ve seen off the league’s bottom feeders, it’s time for us to step up. We’re now facing the Creme de la Menthe of League Two, and what a back-breaking escapade it promises to be too. Our switch from the bottom four to the top five is about to see us …

Stevenage v Grimsby Town:

Grimblesby

Grimsby indoors, eh? It’s much like a slap in the belly with a wet fish; sounds entertaining at first, but then a harsh reality soon sets in. It hurts, don’t it? In taking to the field this weekend, Boro’ get the huge honour of being first (probably) to complete the …

Notts County v Stevenage: Introducing our County File...

County File

From the second worst side in the division indoors to the worst; we’d better catch ourselves on and make the most of this kind run of fixtures at the mo. As sure as Mark Lawrenson is predicting that Liverpool will – once more – avoid defeat for the 17514th consecutive …

Stevenage v Macclesfield Town: It's the return of the Macc...

Return Of The Macc…

Oh look. It’s Macclesfield Town, and it’s been a while; the Silkmen are back in the neighbourhood after more than seven years in non-league exile. Or should that be purgatory? We’ll have to ask our friends down the A1 about that some time. For now, though, Macc now come to …

Stevenage v Cambridge United: Draw it how you like, it's still not a *proper* derby in our eyes...

Win, U’s Or Draw?

As ding-dong derby days go, the idea of Cambridge United makes us shrug our shoulders as if we’ve suddenly come over all French. Mais oui, there have been a few choice battles between us cool kids and dem nerds now and then; some tasty shizzle went down back in our shared Conference …

FIFA 18 Verdict: Wycombe Wanderers (Away)

Wycombe Wanderers (Away): FIFA 18 Verdict

If Boro’ can wrap up this campaign on a high, then what is stopping our FIFA 18 Verdict doing the same? Well, apart from that it rarely comes close to calling the right result, let alone actually being right? We’ll give it the benefit of one last doubt (Before we do …

Wycombe Wanderers v Stevenage: It's the end of the world as we know it...

It’s The End Of The World As We Know It…

… and we feel fine. It’s been 10 months, but here we are; almost across the finish line of another season. And at bloody last while we’re at it. The 2017-8 League Two campaign has been one that’s given us more to forget than remember, all told. No need to …

Stevenage v Exeter City: This is your Good Exe Guide...

The Good Exe Guide

Oh, wouldn’t you know it. The last match indoors this term; this final chance to lift home spirits that have all been too often left flagging over the last nine months. Let’s face it, we aren’t now plundering the depths of umpteenth in the League Two table for nothing. Now, …

FIFA 18 Verdict: Coventry City (Away)

Coventry City (Away): FIFA 18 Verdict

It’s not something we’re proud of, but last week’s FIFA 18 Verdict told you so. Well, it told you we’d score three quarters of sod all indoors against Cambridge. It also, admittedly, had them down to get diddly squat too. So, it means we are none the wiser if you …

Friday, We’re In Cov…

Now, we don’t care if Monday’s blue. Tuesday’s grey, and Wednesday too. Thursday? We don’t care about you. It’s Friday. We’re in Cov. It seems there is something about us and Saturday 3pms at the Ricoh that doesn’t go. First there was Sky, livening up an international break with our mugs …
