Gandermonium Film Review - 'United Passions'

Picture this. A man is sat in a car. And over his shoulder we can see he's making a note in his notebook, meanwhile he has a half eaten sandwich hanging out of his mouth. This of course tells us this guy is a real big shot. A player. Someone who doesn't even stop for lunch. Notes underlined forcefully in his notebook, the camera switches to a wider shot & the man steps out of his car. A bronze coloured early 70's Ford Capri.

2014/2014 Season Review - Part 3

Having failed to set the Conference South world alight in the previous 5 months, there were signs of life towards the end of 2014 and we'd managed to win a few. Will this be the catalyst for one of our now customary post-Xmas charges up the table in the final third of the season? Will any of the crew find themselves miles from home and having to sleep on a station again? Why do we bother? You'll find out all this and more in this exciting final installment of  our end of season review!

Lila Weisse & the Random Applause (Berlin Pt2) - Football Abroad

Despite the rather lacklustre events of the previous evening, I still awake with a somewhat foggy head. Although I can't decide if that's a response to having gone so long without a beer between dinner the previous evening and then entering a properly ropey Techno joint about 100 yards from our apartment, or the pounding electronic tunes we'd been exposed to whilst we smashed back a few desperately needed bottles of Veltins.

At it like a Lidl Checkout Worker (Berlin Pt1) - Football Abroad

It's 3AM on a Sunday morning and I've now been up for 24 hours. Lets just say that I'm very disappointed with what is currently being displayed on the old box before me. For years, since I was knee high to a bar stool, I was always impressed with the difference between what us Brits got in respect to "Adult entertainment" in comparison to what our European brothers from across the Channel got.

2014/15 Season Review - Part 2

Welcome back! Well, in Part 1 of the not very exciting rollercoaster ride that was the season just gone, we got off to a ropey start (again), recovered a bit, went back to being ropey and pretty much levelled out from there. Still, we've always got our customary post-Xmas charge to look forward to! Haven't we?

So, make yourselves comfortable for Part 2. No no, we insist. Mainly as we've barred all the exits and no one's going bloody anywhere until this bit has been completely finished. Do we make ourselves clear? Good...

2014/15 Season Review - Part 1

Here we are again! Another campaign over and despite the hopes & dreams we may have had after last season's second place finish, things didn't exactly go to plan for us this time out either. And then some. Injuries, lack of form from new players, lack of form from old heads, more injuries, lack of goals, far too many errors from far too many players. You name it, it went wrong.

Still, if you thought last years review was a bit of a bastard to re-live, you ain't seen nowt yet! And no, we're not thinking of going into marketing.
