Ctrl, Alt & Delete

Hello readers, welcome to another blog in the history of Gandermonium, and let us hope that this one reads more positively to recent events.  Mostly those being the form of the team which has been poor to put it politely. If you did not already know by now but on Tuesday saw the embarrassment of losing 3-0 at home to bottom of the league Braintree who are surely destined for the National League South.

Lucky to Get Nil

So, what's everyone got planned for the summer then? Going anywhere nice on your holidays? Maybe a bit of sun and sea, or are you a traditional staycationer sort? Me and the missus are thinking about Malta this year actually. What? I'm just asking! I'm really genuinely interested in our readers well being and what they're up to. Oh I see, you're one of those cynical types that is sat there thinking this is just some load of old flannel to avoid talking about a season that is going downhill quicker than Boeing's share price. Well, in that case you'd be absolutely bang on.

Whip It Like Devo

So the Sutton Mega bus carries on falling down the mountain. Wins these days are getting to become a bit of a rarity, certainly so far in 2019. Looking in the books and you can see that we now have a very miserable record of only two wins in thirteen attempts. But we're still a little way off from our rather limp start to the 2012/13 season. So that's a positive to take from Saturday I reckon.

Birthday Bashed

As luck would have it, our beloved Sutton United FC was born on this day back in 1898, so what better way to celebrate a 121st year of shit Non-League football than to pop 230-odd miles up the road to the outskirts of Manchester for a few beers and a game? Well, we were born in a pub after all, so the beers are at least topical. However we feel the original boys who set this thing up in the room above the Robin Hood would probably never have heard of a place called Salford, let alone travelled there. And to them, the 'Class of 92' simply meant their last year at the local grammar school.

If I Had a Hammer

Greetings readers and welcome to another Robbo blog for the league fixture versus Hartlepool United.  Let me recap the week’s events where yours truly had to visit the wonderful town of Dover for work purposes rather than National League ones. I think it is fair I should state at this point that there are only two good things about Dover: 1. The views you get of the English Channel on the train journey in; and 2. Leaving Dover.

Britney Spears Doppelganger

Greetings pop pickers and discerning Non-League blog readers. My you're looking well. Have you been away, got a bit of sun? Maybe it's a new haircut? No? Oh well, never mind, either way you're looking fabulous today. Us? Well thanks for asking. Ok, so we've got the sort of injury list that would make Florence Nightingale think "Fuck this!" and go get a job stacking shelves in Tescos and we're finding goals as hard to come by as a Faberge Egg at a boot sale, but other than that, musn't grumble.

A Mild Bee Sting

By Thor's Hammer! That result was not expected by me in the slightest. And going by the reaction inside the 'Secret Gandermonium What's Up Thingy', neither did anyone else for that matter. But this is football and more importantly, this is Sutton United. And not some knock off form of 'Championship Manager 97/98'. So we all know how they can be at times like these.

Stakeholder Engagement

Greetings loyal readers and welcome to another Robbo blog! I was messaged by our very own Dukey in the week asking if I was writing for the Barrow game. As it happened, I was unsure myself so I asked our very own Editor-in-Chief Taz and he confirmed I was indeed on duty for today.

Lifestyle Choice

As you know I like to start off these exercises in football avoidance that masquerade as a “match day blog” with a little bit of personal history that I like to think gives you, the reader, a bit of a window into my world and give a feel for the life experiences that have been roughly stitched together to make me the man that I am today. Others may describe it as “blatant fucking filler”. I say suit yerselves.

Knife and Fork Affair

The internet. It's both all that is good and of course bad in this world of ours. As wonderfully useful as it is deeply troubling. And we here at the Monium of Gander are no strangers to both of these sides of the same world wide webby coin. Apart from of course bringing you this utter delight every week, it's helped us setup many interesting trips and meet lots of nice people. We'd never have met all the nice folks at Forres for instance without the interwebs. But for every friendship made and pub recommendation, there's always an Orient wanker getting you blocked on Facebook and losing you 60% of an audience you worked 3 years to build. Good and bad see?
