This game was originally scheduled for New Years day. I have no idea why it was changed. Sky hadn’t claimed it as one of their own. It wasn’t a high risk game. In fact, there doesn’t seem to be any reason for the change at all. Also, why do Reading kick off at 8 o’clock?…… Continue reading 2/1/18 Reading v Blues. Pinch me, I’m dreaming.
After waiting in the queue for twenty minutes, whilst an Irish family, or more to the point, woman, confused the booking clerk at West Drayton station, I topped my Oyster card up and got the train into Paddington. Great Western Railway had invested in new rolling stock. Very shiny, no unidentifiable stains, no debris squashed…… Continue reading 1/1/18 Wimbledon v Southend United. Overground, Underground, Wombleling free.
The firm I currently work for, took it upon themselves to pay us early for December. Eleven days early in fact. Something we weren’t consulted on. They then expected us to make a months wage last six weeks. Thanks, thanks for absolutely nothing. My bank account was already looking pretty sick. Darrell text to say…… Continue reading 30/12/17 Blues v Leeds United. Leads aren’t just meant for dogs.
Once I’d managed to get my ticket for the game, I’m not ashamed to say that I was excited about this one. The forecast snow hadn’t materialised. It looked more frost than snow.

The fixture Gods had been kind enough to give us a home game. It was one of the reasons why I’d chosen to do every game this season. Not only do I want to do every game, I want to do it by public transport. No supporters coach (Official or otherwise) or lift in a…… Continue reading 26/12/17 Blues v Norwich City. Bottom of the pecking order.
As Worzel came down the stairs, a package was shoved through the letter box followed by the sound of someone running away. The walls of the flat that the club had paid for him and Elsie to share were on the rather thin side. That’s odd, he thought, I’m sure the post had already been…… Continue reading Are you sitting comfortably?
A couple of days previous, Steve had informed me that Cross Country were going to be on strike the day of the game. Having first, checked to make sure my ticket would be valid, secondly, finding out what the revised timetable was, I headed to Sunderland. I got down to New Street early to find…… Continue reading 23/12/17 Sunderland v Blues. Strikers of a different kind.
