At New Street station, Darryl was already on the concourse, of course, and I thought I was early for the train. Jinksy was next to join us, while we waited for Mikey, who’d settled on getting the train into town, as the buses weren’t running properly from where he lives. Once he’d arrived, we went…… Continue reading 14/9/19 Charlton Athletic v Blues, Jude The Unobscure.
I was disappointed with my personal performance last season in terms of games attended, something I was determined to put right this season. This game was the 15th game, 9th new ground. For me, the only redeeming feature, was the amount of F.A.Cup games I managed, this game would already be the 3rd of this…… Continue reading 7/9/19 Stafford Rangers v Mickleover Sports, F.A.Cup 1st Qualifying Round, Aim Range.
I can’t for the life of me, understand why people take their time coming out of work, personally, I can’t get out quickly enough, I mean, cloud of dust quick, probably only slightly slower than what Darryl would be. I can understand people being slower than me, but it’s like some people don’t want to…… Continue reading 2/9/19 Boldmere St Michaels v Stourport Swifts, F.A.Cup Qualifying Preliminary Round Replay, Taking The Mickey.

Caught a late running train from Aston to Sutton Coldfield, a place my…… Continue reading 26/8/19 Sutton Coldfield Town v Cleethorpes Town, Northern Premier South East Division. A Hot, Sunny Day, In A Cold Field.
It was a nice day, so I walked into town, last summer spoilt the likes of me, who adore hot, sunny, dry weather, this year, it’s returned to type, so Indian summer, it maybe, but making use of it felt almost compulsory. Walking down Corporation Street, me and Badge spotted each other, a conversation on…… Continue reading 24/8/19 Romulus v Market Drayton Town, F.A.Cup Qualifying Preliminary Round, In The Market For Some Six Appeal.
I used to love night games as a kid, they had this aura about them, you’d notice different people around you in work uniforms, whether they were suits or donkey jackets. The urgency and expectation seemed heightened. I dislike them these days, unless I’m on a day off, now I’m one of those people that…… Continue reading 20/8/19 Blues v Barnsley, No Hiding From The Bogey Men.
