Spice Island

Remember the good old days, when football cup competition sponsors were memorable. The Rumbelows Cup, the Milk Cup and the Surrey Demolition and Excavation Senior Cup. Absolute classics. Back when the sponsors were already genuine high street brands rather than some ‘who?’ outfit just spunking a few quid so you might recognise their obscure brand […]

Britain’s Biggest Newt Pond

Port Vale now is it? We seem to be rolling our way through all those old Fourth Division clubs that used to get spewed out on the Grandstand teleprinter when we were kids and life was better and we satisfied ourselves with the simple pleasures in life like shooting each other with spud guns, shoplifting […]

Passionfruit Martini

Even when things are going well and you think it’s all rosy in the garden of life and there’s nothing to really be unhappy about, there’s always that one miserable sod who has to go and be an arse about something and bum everyone out. In our particular little circle, we call this person ‘Dukey’. […]

4 Yum Yum’s & A Pint of Milk

In the immortal words of Dante Hicks, “I’m not even supposed to be here today!”.

I’d first like to thank the top brass at Gandermonium for letting me contribute my debut Sutton United match blog.

However like lambs to the […]

Half Cut Gratin

Whilst everyone tries their very best to get back to normal and basically forget the Covidbollocks ever happened, last week’s postponement was a bitter reminder that the pesky lil’ virus is still lurking and looking to screw around with our pre-arranged leisure plans. Thankfully though, it was at least a fairly local game that got […]

Getting a Pizza the Nigels

I think it was some rebel traitor against the Crown who once remarked that there was “only two things certain in life: death and taxes”. Well, we here at Gandermonium would like to add a third point to that statement and that’s “if there is some sort of Micky Mouse cup that Sutton are going […]

Saucy Postcards

I’m something of a connoisseur of popular culture. Never tried to hide it. Never needed to. I like those glimpses of life that open a window into a world that’s passed by. Adverts in old football programmes are a rich source of such snippets but I’m here right now to open this loosely branded “match […]
