The Fritzl Lounge

With a first away point finally acquired up in Grimsby last weekend, we revert back to a little run in the Republic of three matches this week. First up we welcome Nigel Clough’s mob to GGL in the league today before taking on a who’s who of lads that’ll be on loan to Vitesse Arnhem […]

Pathetic Little Ears

As per usual, we hardly have time to catch our breath from our last long trip North up in Crewe midweek before the next one’s hard on its heels and there’s early rises and all the other usual cobblers to consider. However for this week’s match, our inaugural visit to Cleethorpes Grimsby, there’s an added […]

Hier Kommt Alex

Deep breath, hold your nose and in we plunge again into the deep end of League 2. After Saturday’s valuable first win of the season over Barrow, there’s no time to rest on our laurles as we’re back on the road once more and taking in a new venue for the third time this month […]

Indirect Fortune

Blimey, this weather. It’s been a bit of a struggle if I’m honest. Being both British and of the red headed persuasion, this means I most definitely am not buit for these kind of conditions. Sure, we can put up with on our holidays as we’re not at home, have nice food and unusual beer […]

Final Rehearsal

So it’s all come to this. The final preparations for our second season in the football league wouldn’t have been complete without a good ol’ barmy with Bromley. As per every season, there have been changes. Old friends have left, new lads have arrived. What’s most important though, particularly during these fitness-testing warm ups, is […]

Love Fifteen

So here is my first attempt at covering a Sutton game for the famous Gandermonium blog, the pre-season friendly against Woking. Of course, I have studied with a lot of attention the style of the original writings from this place and discovered that they would most necessarily involve a detailed description of the travel needed […]

Wear Sunscreen

Oh, hello there. Uh, what are you hanging about for? We’re not kicking off for another couple of weeks yet! Then we’ll be right back to our usual blend of nonsense, swearing, drinking and occasionally mentioning the football! What’s that? “Pre-season” you say? Who the hell wants to read about that? I mean, they’re just […]
