Fleeting Popularity

Popularity. It can be a fleeting experience. Or so I'm told. Being ginger and a non-league football fan, I of course wouldn't have a fucking clue about such things but I am at least well advised by people who are experienced in such matters. It's also a feeling our beloved U's have come to know somewhat over the last couple of years.

Billy Big Bollocks Baloney

“In this world one thing counts….In the bank, large amounts.”

I’m a big fan of the old musicals me. Not the current half-arsed bollocks which is basically just a threadbare plot to stitch together an artists back catalogue so they can have another run round the houses milking the royalties. Nope, I’m talking about the stuff I grew up with as a kid blasting out from mum’s old valve radiogram and the one that remains the tops for me is 'Oliver!'

Je meprise ce crapaud odieux Rock et Eastleigh

Previously in Gandermonium and Sutton United terms, we all safely made it back from Yorkshire and no one got on the wrong train heading home, yes Dukey I am talking about you. An event which I hope has been fully covered in his blog. If not, just ask anyone of us for the story and how we made a carriage laugh at the Duke's misfortune.

Anyone for Garforth?

Thank fuck the season has finally arrived! I don't know why, possibly the freakin' hot weather recently, but this year's pre-season has been about as exciting as a Jeremy Corbyn audio sex tape. Despite this, the Gandermonium blogs are getting more views than those that bothered to attend the actual matches.  Fuck knows why. But it doesn't matter now, because the start of the 'real' season is upon us.

Ahoj, Jsi krásná, ukaz kozy! - Football Abroad

Well I suppose that I couldn't get away with it forever. After managing to convince several friends and family members that I could never make a wedding-related event if it were to ever fall on a match day, they finally figured it out. What if it's a pre-season match? He won't be able to use the excuse "Sorry, can't make it, it's North Ferriby away that weekend" as using "Norwich under 23's at home" just won't wash. Ever. Well, unless you're Ipswich Lee of course...
