The Final Curtain

Nearly there folks, nearly there. There hasn’t been a lot from the 2013/4 campaign to put on the Doovdé Highlights – it’ll be a shorter watch than Great Michael Warner Goals Of Our Time (£1.99, VHS/Betamax). And after spending a good few months somehow losing to sides doing barely passable impressions of third tier teams, we’d rather …

Relief?

“Relief? Well, now let us see. Y’know, we don’t have any idea what that means. We know what you think it means, Mr Westley. To us, it’s just a made up word. A manager’s word, so young fellas like can wear a suit and a tie, and have a job…” The interpretation of just one word …

And On The Third Day…

We’ve already touched on the reasons why this fixture is as welcome as an arsonist at a fire safety convention. After failing to beat teams in and around us in recent weeks, this season is looking like it’ll have a deeply unhappy ending. Now we go to a side who …

They Think It’s All Over…

It’s taken a couple of days, but we’ve finally dragged ourselves to the computer to accept that our League One fate is now all but sealed. We’d still have a chance if we’d overcome an average Colchester United, but we’ve been called in – our time is up. And the …

Colchester United are in town and – beg, borrow or steal – we need three points to breathe new life into our hopes of staying in this division

Holding Out For A Hero

And so we come to what could be described as Boro’s biggest game for at least a couple of years. Colchester United are in town and – beg, borrow or steal – we need three points to breathe new life into our slightly faded hopes of staying in this division. …

“It’s Not The Despair, Laura…”

“…I can take the despair. It’s the hope I can’t stand.” It took us some time to pluck up the courage, but we’ve just taken a look at the League One table for the first time since late last week. And it makes for grim reading. The 1-0 defeat at …

Inspector Shrewseau

And so within the space of days we go from playing the top team in the league to playing the team that now sit at the foot of the table. Off we go to Shrewsbury Town and, well, it must surely be one of the most crucial games of the …

Crying Wolf

Well, what do you know? It’s top versus bottom and if you’ve somehow managed to keep yourself in the dark about Boro’s progress this season, here’s a clue – we ain’t top. This is not what we’d consider the ideal game to have after a pretty lacklustre point against Port …

The Light At The End Of The Tunnel…

… is an oncoming train. Luckily, it’s a First Capital Connect service so it’s delayed, borked and therefore still gives us time to find another escape route. But, it’ll get to us eventually and our time will run out if we don’t do something. Port Vale are next at the …

Sky Blue Thinking

You know when a result has been particularly naff when you’re still feeling miffed three days after the full time whistle was blown. We’ve had more than our fair share of losses this term, but few – if any – felt quite as gut-wrenching as MK Dons. Maybe it’s losing …
