Once More Unto The Breach

Turns out the G-Smiffy All Stars aren’t giving this playoff chase up without a fight and one of those “yeeeee-haaaas” you often hear in Harlow. Boro’ caused pain, suffering and a little bit of embarrassment to Yeovil Town on Saturday down in the West Country – now its time to …

Pre-Match Toffee

Stevenage is fast becoming the Football League club you can set your watch, or associated timepiece, to. The moment that Boro’ put the ball in the back of the net, you can be sure it is 3.58pm (on Saturdays) or 9.41pm (on weekdays). And always in time to make a …

Nobody Likes Change

I worked for my previous employer for 10 years. I’d been through an apprenticeship there, learnt my trade there and was comfortable there. I knew my role inside out, knew everybody and had a lot of friends. Then the company hired a new manager who tried to shake things up …

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 …

A Bad Day At The Proverbial…

The Football League Show isn’t a programme we’ll be watching tonight. Horror isn’t really our cup of tea here at BoroGuide and we’d sooner watch Saw 3 before we contemplate the  scenes of a quite disturbing nature that were Tranmere’s goals yesterday. At least it wasn’t full price on the …

Unwavering Optimism And All That Jazz…

The nation, it seems, remains gripped by talk and paranoia over the possibility of a striking crisis. Are they referring to the petrol tanker drivers, or the fact that Stevenage are without a number of their front men for the trip to Tranmere. We know which is more important to …

The Monday Rant: Groundhog Day

Another weekend ends, another Monday begins. And yet there is a familiarity about things at the moment that has entrenched us in this endless, repetitive loop of draws, late Carlisle winners and head scratching: Just how do we win? With it, annoyingly, remain the calls of some for drastic management …

Wycombe Wondering

It’s such a lovely day again, isn’t it? In fact, we just went for a particularly pleasant stroll in and around Hitchin. Yep, “pleasant” and “Hitchin” in the same sentence. Groundbreaking. While we were out, we caught sight of a butterfly. Its wings were red and white with a little …

Baby, We Were Bourne To Run…

The Boss speaketh unto you dear Boro’ brethren on this wonderful, marvellous Tuesday in March. It’s days like this we should be at the seaside, but them at the Football League – they have the seaside coming to us. But at Boro’, we don’t build our castles on the sand. …

The Monday Rant: First Half

Do you remember the last time we scored a goal in the first half of a game? And don’t say Sheffield Wednesday, because that doesn’t really count. Not when the ball hit Scott Laird and went in, rather than the other way around. In a world of great expectations, we …
