I dislike Luton Town, have done since the 80s, banning all away fans and a plastic pitch, saw to that. Even before the ban, it was a horrible ground, and you could never call it a stadium, that dislike has grown since the meagre allocation given to us this season, if you’re a long term…… Continue reading 11/1/20 Bromsgrove Sporting v Tamworth, Southern League Premier Division Central, Given A Sporting Chance.
I didn’t fancy watching Blues v Blackburn in the cup, had it been a 3 o’clock kickoff, I might’ve done, but it had been changed to 12:30, to be covered by foreign television, hence a ground hop. Lancaster’s ground is situated right next to the train station, for a non League ground, it’s quite substantial,…… Continue reading 4/1/20 Lancaster City v Morpeth Town, Northern Premier League Premier Division. Be Careful With That Giant Axe, You, Jean.
Anyone with an interest in football, however remote, and have had the displeasure of meeting me, will have seen the astonishing scoreline between Blues and Leeds that came out of St Andrews, a couple of days ago, and anyone who reads this car crash of a blog, on a regular basis, would have been expecting…… Continue reading 1/1/20 Blues v Wigan Athletic, Game Changer……Again.

Us ale trailers travel by public transport, we might get a…… Continue reading 26/12/19 Rushall Olympic v Hednesford Town, Southern League Premier Division Central. Rushing Around.
Both Jinksy and Darryl were tied to work, a particular Hell I can put to the back of my mind until 20/20 vision time. I was however, an hour later than the rest, with heading up to Humberside, I can only imagine that it was cheaper going an hour later, as the reason why the…… Continue reading 22/12/19, Hull City v Blues, Hull Is For Heroes.
I was so relieved, when I left the flat that finally it was raining. After all, it had been almost 2 hours since we’d had rain. I absolutely despise early kickoffs, they knock your body clock sideways, great if you’re an armchair fan, horrible for us supporters who actually make the effort to watch our…… Continue reading 14/12/19 Blues v West Bromwich Albion, Dear Santa, Please Can We Have A Goalscorer Like The One Albion Have Got Please?
