Shakers: Prattle And Roll

From six games unbeaten to three defeats on the spin – well, that escalated quickly… didn’t it? It looks like having a small squad has given us a few headaches, what with 137 players now on Paul Dando’s treatment table. Yep, we’re now just two knocks away from replacing the …

Gary, Men Behaving Badly

Stag Do

The next leg of the Grand League Two Roadshow 2014-5 takes us to Mansfield Town for a not-so-chance encounter with the Stags, and if we’ve learned anything from Men Behaving Badly (and we bloody have), it means that we are supposed to act like stags. AAAAOOO! Or however you choose to imitate that particular …

Ready For Business

Ah yes, Oxford United – a club that we seem to irk in some form or other ever since their Work Experience Kid forgot to press send on the fax machine and earned the Us a five-point deduction in 2008-9; a mistake that let us leapfrog them into the playoffs at the end of …

Stevenage FC face tough test over Christmas

In recent seasons Stevenage have made massive progress through the football pyramid, establishing themselves as regulars in England’s football league. Having played 16 consecutive seasons in the Conference (1994-5 – 2009-10), lightning struck twice as the team won consecutive promotions to League 1; whence began a magnificent FA Cup run …

Dad's Army - You have been watching...

You Have Been Watching…

If the experience of being dumped out of the FA Cup live on telly hadn’t been as chastening, as painful and as humiliating as last night proved to be, you could have almost passed it off as a sitcom written by David Croft and Jimmy Perry. Y’know – a group of men being given …

Harrison’s Half Hour

And so, with all the enthusiasm and anticipation you’d normally reserve for a Monday morning drive around the circumference of the M25 in a Austin Allegro, we return to League Two action this weekend. For now, it appears we must do the dirty on the mighty Maidstone United and see someone …
