Stevenage v Crawley Town: After last week's hugely enjoyable party-pooping, we're back at the Lamex; Crawley Town wrapping up our 2020-1 home schedule

Stevenage v Crawley Town [Preview]

After last week’s hugely enjoyable party-pooping at the Abbey Stadium, we’re back at the Lamex; Crawley Town wrapping up our 2020-1 home schedule. Unlike the Us, our guests have nothing left to play for now. And that’s just an observation – not a criticism. We have nothing left to play …

Crawley Town v Stevenage: It's been a rather gentle start to 2021. But we're now turning up the volume as a hectic run starts with a trip to Crawley...

Crawley Town v Stevenage [Preview]

OK – let’s see if we can get this one ticked off this time; it’s take two for our trip to Crawley after Covid-19 got in the way first time around. For those of you who weren’t hibernating in January, it’s three-and-a-half weeks since we were due to swing by …

Like us, the Reds are flying the flag for the first wave of New Towns...

Crawley Town

Like us, Crawley Town have been doing a decent job of flying the footballing flag for the first wave of New Towns in recent times. First there was Stevenage, of course; our New Town getting the green light in November 1946. But next up wasn’t Harlow. Or Basildon, Hatfield or …

FIFA 20 Verdict: Crawley Town v Stevenage [22 Feb 2020]

FIFA 20 Verdict: Crawley Town (Away)

So, our FIFA 20 Verdict isn’t always right – or should that be ‘ever’ right? But we might as well put our trip to Crawley to the virtual test. You never know. It may just come up with the right result one day. And then who’ll be laughing? Exactly – …

Match Preview – Crawley Town v Stevenage (22 Feb 2020): Devils' Advocate?

Devils’ Adovcate?

Any time we leave the country, Boro’ normally start turning on the form. But not this time, apparently. In fact, we ended up with more of the same; losing all three games we were AWOL for. What was a two-horse battle against the drop between us and Morecambe has slowing …

Preview – Surely Crawley: Stevenage v Crawley Town (07 Dec 2019)

Surely Crawley?

Two goals AND a win on the road? It ain’t like us. But let’s hope we can bring it back indoors here. League Two has come a-calling for the first time in what seems like ages. And, yet, it’s only been a fortnight since our last outing. It’s been enough …

Stevenage v Crawley Town: Back indoors for the second time in 2019; time to show the world what we're made of. Or that would be the hope, anyway

Craw And Order

If any match report from last week was more than one word and could be printed without a parental advisory sticker, it was over-written. Awful, dire or rubbish; that’s putting the 2-0 reverse up at Cambridge mildly to say the least. To have now given six points to a team …

Crawley Town (Away): The FIFA 18 Verdict

It’s the 43rd most glamorous English football match due to take place this weekend. Of course, this is our own scoring system we’re applying here. But you come round here to our gaff and convince us that Grimsby Town v Accrington Stanley is the stuff dreams are made of. Not …

Crawley Town v Stevenage: Trawling for points in Crawley...

Crawlermen

So, is it more that Chesterfield were that bad than us turning a corner? Or that Lincoln City are chugging along nicely in League Two this term? Or maybe even a combination of both? Either way, one thing we won’t need to debate all night long is Boro’s run on the …

Stevenage v Crawley Town: Can Boro' haul themselves back to winning (or, at least, unbeaten) ways...?

Night Crawlers

Oh dear. The home defeat to Lincoln at the weekend put us in a right fluffery buffery, make no mistake. Our unbeaten run, for what it counts for at this stage of the season, is gone like the wind. It’s never going to look good on paper if a team …
