I got into town early enough to take the opportunity for a mooch. Something that is always nicest when it’s quietest. You get to admire the architecture better. New and old. “Tramlines aren’t just something used in tennis” I was joined by Mikey as I checked the train times. He’d been down to Lord’s the…… Continue reading 11/8/18 Middlesbrough v Blues. Gardner’s World, With The Ugly Sisters.
I was feeling flat, but still kind of excited at the same time. If nothing else, would my new season ticket card work?

This was my 60th game of the season, and my last. I would’ve taken in more, had it not been for. . . . . . . you can guess the rest, before I bore you anymore than I already have done. This might have been my 60th, but it was the first women’s game…… Continue reading 20/5/18 Blues Ladies v Reading Women. Well that’s another one over.
On the bus into town, I was struck by some strange nerves.

I’d still be purchasing…… Continue reading 6/5/18 Blues v Fulham. Deja Vu. . . . . . . Again.
