Three Great FA Cup Memories For Stevenage

There is a lot of talk in football at the moment about restructuring the two cup competitions in England. And it remains to be seen if changes are applied. Stevenage, like many other lower league clubs, benefit greatly from revenue which is generated in these competitions. Here is a good …

BoroGuide's FIFA 20 Verdict

FIFA 20 Verdict: Peterborough United (Away)

Oh baby, it’s cold outside. That’s why we’re basking in the warm glow of the PS4 Pro to get the FIFA 20 take on who might win this cup replay. It’s Posh, part deux for us – with Marcus Maddison’s long-range chancer the reason why we’re not knee-deep in prep …

PREVIEW – Peterborough United v Stevenage: We're both coming into this FA Cup replay as fresh as daisies after both of us had a Saturday off...

If Posh Come To Shove…

Come on then, how did you end up spending your unexpected free weekend? Got all the Christmas shopping done, no doubt. Or maybe you found the cure for a nasty disease. If so, more power to you. But it wasn’t just Boro’ who had a quiet day of it on …

Stevenage v Peterborough United – Posh 'n' Go: We've already gone through to the next round of one competition this week. Now for the second?

Posh ‘n’ Go

We’ve already gone through to the next round of one competition this week. Now for the second? Our march into the knockout stages of the Leasing.com Trophy didn’t even call for us to do anything, but we’re not sure that doing nothing will work in this FA Cup First Round …

Plymouth Argyle v Stevenage: It's time for Boro' to start out on the Road To Wembley... with everyone else

The Road To Wembley. Or Something…

Lads, the Checkatrade Trophy may not be a competition we’re all that fussed about, but any record that shows played two, lost two, conceded 12 ain’t gonna look good on the end of term report. And we’re not back out of cup mode just yet, either; the FA Cup grabbing …

FIFA 18 Verdict: Reading (A)

Reading (Away): The FIFA 18 Verdict

Twice. In fact, it’s twice in a row. That’s how many times our FIFA 18 Verdict has been half right in the past two times it’s been tested. This is a dangerous development. It almost qualifies the time we spend with the PS4 as an actual work of science. It rightly …

Reading v Stevenage: Reading or not, here we come...

Reading Or Not, Here We Come…

No points up for grabs and no historic personal milestones; just a chance to travel to either Carlisle or Sheffield Wednesday in the Fourth Round. That’s the bottom line here, folks. The FA Cup isn’t always glamorous, nor is it always romantic. But we’re still in it, and that is …

FIFA 18 Verdict: Reading (H)

Reading (Home): The FIFA 18 Verdict

Ah, the world of make-believe. You know, it can be a great leveller if the delicate balance is interrupted by one side being clearly better than the other. Or should that be supposedly? Ignore the weather, forget the state of the pitch and shake off any potential twinge; the control pad is …

Stevenage v Reading: The FA Cup tie by Royals appointment...

By Royals Appointment

In some ways, there’s no need for us to churn out this match preview. And, no, we don’t mean ‘no need’ in that unsolicited-could-you-be-entitled-to-a-PPI-refund-call sort of way. What we do mean (before you get all smart arsey) is that this is the FA Cup, right? Boro’ are, therefore, nailed on to …

Stevenage v Swindon Town: It's the FA Cup Second Round, and Swinter is coming...

Swinter Is Coming

The FA Cup and Stevenage Borough. It’s Peter Shilton somehow avoiding a red card in our 1996 win at Leyton Orient. Or our ‘home’ fixture against Birmingham City? It’s Newcastle part one and Kenny’s bouncy balls. And it’s Peter Winn in Newcastle part two. It’s even super Tottenham at the …
