You know that pre-season is grinding its way to a welcome conclusion when your occasional columnist is lumped with doing the blog twice in a couple of weeks. Attempts by the editorial board to feed me some old horseshit about being “the Fred Gee pitch specialist” and “the right man for the job” were just a cover for the fact that not only couldn’t anyone else be arsed to write this report but some of them couldn’t even be arsed to attend the game at all.

Ah, good old pre-season. No matter what you expect to get from it, the games always seem to be a bit of an anti-climax. With our little excursion to Jersey now a distant memory (But the physical reminder in my guts remains) of a week ago, we got to entertain a team that some consider more of an equal.

Now, everyone knows pre-season games are crap. We all know neither side is really taking it that seriously and there's nothing at stake. So why would you bother? Usually, it's just boredom that draws you in. A few weeks without football and you'll watch any old pony. But, once in a while, someone dreams up a friendly that's not only worth going to, but also provides a weekend on the lash.

With Gandermonium now playing with an all-out, four man attack it fell on my shoulders to cover the historic match officially opening the new Fred Gee pitch installed over the summer at Gander Green Lane and with a bumper crowd in on a drizzly night against a Croydon Posers XI.

It’s that time of year again when the football season is once more upon us for the next 9 odd months or something like that. And well, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these write up things (as Duke reminds me every bleedin' day of my life). Seeing as I missed most of last season due to rebuilding the Golf and getting it back on the road, a little project I thought which turned out to be a major one, never the less after getting my orders for the Editor in Chief (Taz), I thought I’d better get my arse back into gear and write some kind of interesting update to keep all you Gandermonium Fans pleased. Or something like that.

I'm sure we've all been here before. For last season's opener I made a little ditty about being like the clap. Well to be honest, if we've still got it then we really should seek medical help. Even if we ask Dr Bell for some advice, then we will be heading in the right direction. But, lets not get bogged down into the world of sexual diseases and continue on with why you read the blog in the first place (if only we knew why).
