19/9/20 Hednesford Town v Stourbridge, Southern League Premier Central. Gaslighting Is The Pits.

With what appears to be usual now, I walked into town, as I got there, I found myself with ‘Ghost Town’ by the Specials echoing round my near empty head. I hadn’t got my headphones on, it’s just what the Covid Gestapo have created for Brum. The shops are open, but there’s hardly anyone in…… Continue reading 19/9/20 Hednesford Town v Stourbridge, Southern League Premier Central. Gaslighting Is The Pits.

12/9/20 Shifnal Town v AFC Bridgnorth, F.A.Cup Preliminary Round, Gauging The Temperature Of A Micro Shropshire Derby.

Not some convoluted effort, with staid commentary…… Continue reading 5/9/20 Highgate United v AFC Wulfrunians, Midlands Premier Division. Highs And Lows.

Since Francis’s first season, I’d gone ballistic on the jobs front. I’d gone from working at the same factory for 4 years, to working at 5 different ones in the space of 12 months. I suffer from itchy feet. By that, I don’t mean I don’t dry between my toes properly and end up with…… Continue reading 21/3/98 Blues v Nottingham Forest, Setting Mini Me On The Path To Indoctrination.
