The Chairboys

If you’re reading this, there’s a very strong chance that it’s Friday and you’re at least halfway to being freed from the burden of paid employment for another two days; three if you’re somewhat liberal with your application of your annual leave entitlement. But that ain’t our business – the prospect …

South by Southend

It’s ruddy nice to go to someone else’s place and mess up the furniture, especially when Ronnie Moore is involved. And that’s what we got with our Valentine’s Day delight up at Hartlepool United. It was probably appropriate – or maybe not – that 14 February was the day we …

Carry On Physio – the definitive-ish Hartlepool preview

Have you been injured in an accident at work that wasn’t your fault? It won’t surprise us if Graham Westley has spent the whole week on the blower to Ambulance Chasers 4U making some claims on behalf of them guys who have transformed Paul Dando’s physio room from an oasis of tranquility (probably) into the most …

Father Ted and Father Dougal with Christmas Tree

Ding Dong Daggers

So this is Christmas, and what have you done? Another year over, but first Dagenham. And so, as we said right there, this is Christmas – and we hope you had fun. Now for the part that could be less fun – yep, it’s a Boro’ away day. Off to …

The Exe Factor

Christmas – it’s a time for giving, so they say. We don’t know who they actually are, but we just hope Boro’ have done all their giving for this festive period after handing Newport County an easy three points last weekend. It is unlikely to be remembered as the best …

Newport – League Two State Of Mind

Oh. What’s occurrin’…? So then. Newport – twinned with Guangxi Province in China, there’s no province finer. We can’t vouch for that specific part of south east Asia, but we can for that part of south east Wales that is so often overlooked by the folk at Lonely Planet and Rough …

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 …
