Accrington Milk Advert

Accrington Stanley? Who Are They?

Accrington – it doesn’t quite have the same appeal you’ll get in places like Monaco, New York, the Bahamas or even Swindon. But here we are, facing the idea of a trip up to the Lancashire town as the League Two campaign hurtles ever closer to its end for another year. If you aren’t …

Pete and Dud - The Dagenham Dialogues

Dagenham And Redbridge And That…

This “seventh heaven” concept is a strange one to us. After all, what’s so wrong with the first, second and – cor blimey – even the third versions of the afterlife that you’d want to sack off the first six and head for the door marked “seven”? Well, it seems to …

Is This The Way To… Carlisle? Oh?

If you hear that Tony Christie’s Is This The Way To Amarillo is back in the charts, it may just have something to do with us. We have no idea why, but it’s back on our playlist here at BoroGuide HQ. It gives us a little trip down memory lane, if …

So, You Wanna Talk About Preston?

It’s quite incredible how our recent run – 10 points from a possible 12 – has the ability to transform Boro’s fortunes. The bottom 10 is separated by just eight points at the moment, so it’s maybe not that surprising that a string of results can have a massive impact …

Tranmere? You Bet!

Welcome, welcome, and why not have a seat? Now close your eyes – we’re about to head back in time to this stage of the season last year. On 9 March, Tranmere Rovers defeated Oldham Athletic at Prenton Park to revive their hopes of going up. A month before, they …

Don’t Be Blue, Peter

“Quick as a flash, I replied, ‘Don’t be blue, Peter!’ Needless to say, I had the last laugh.” The circus is in town! The circus is in town! You know a Stevenage game has the potential to pull in the crowds when the Fairlands car park is put out of …

Leyton Gains?

Good wibble. Like many of the teams towards the top end of the League One table, Leyton Orient are little more than a tiny speck as we look the long way up from the dingy surroundings of bottom place. Defeat at Rotherham United wasn’t the end of the world, but …

A Load Of Old Toffee (2020)

A Load Of Old Toffee – Episode 48

A Load Of Old Toffee – Episode 48: The ALOOT team is now back after a completely undeserved mini-break – that or they have been temporarily washed away. Either way, host Steve Watkins is joined by Deano and Mark as usual to discuss the latest Boro’ events. You may think …

Thrills And Gills

Has it stopped raining? Do we actually think we might see some football this week? It’d be nice to think so – one-and-a-half weeks since the Everton game and two-and-a-half weeks since our last league game, we were starting to get withdrawal symptoms. First up now we have a fixture …

Is This One Actually Going To Happen?

If you haven’t been paying attention this January, it’s either been raining its arse off or the English Channel is now 20 miles larger than it was. Most of southern England is no longer there – submerged and no more than a British version of Atlantis, except with more Tesco …
