Take Two

In recent years there’s been some unusual pairings for the U’s as we’ve slowly made our way through the ranks, playing sides and visiting grounds we’d never really thought would be possible outside of something like the FA Cup. For me, one of the those was meeting Oldham Athletic. Never did I think I’d get […]

Lunch Date

With the last couple of games ending in defeat thanks to having more casualties than, well, a series of Casualty, we’ve gone from 3rd place and being firmly in the hunt for another insane and all round confusing promotion to sitting 8th, just outside the play off spots. Nothing we can do of course, just […]

Barest of Bones

Following our rather less than successful first ever visit to the Bescot at the weekend and all sorts of other fast food based nonsense, we are once more on the road racking up the miles for the midweek fixtures, this time heading down to another new (for most of us anyway) ground in Swindon Town’s […]

Mint Balls

Us? Oooh, we’ve always been big big Pizza Cup guys. Oh yeah. Massive fans. Can’t get enough of that Pizza Cup action, it’s all we talk about in fact. Pizza Cup this, Pizza Cup that. We even dream about it when we sleep. So it’s literally just Pizza Cup chatter night and day around here. […]

First we got the pandemic, which has made a proper mess of everything, putting people’s lives on hold and meaning many missing out on all sorts or big […]

The Singles Table

Well hello there! Welcome back to this stupid bit of the internet that mainly talks about getting drunk in the name of watching football in remote Northern outposts. This week, we’re again on the road and heading into the wilds of somewhere up near Scotland again for a trip to one of our more favoured […]

Toilet Tennis

Well now me old chinchillas. Been a while since I winged your a love letter from the South Coast but this close to Valentine’s Day it’s nice to be rubbing up against you again in the football blogging equivalent of the Clouseaus Erection Session. Too much? I haven’t even started with you yet my mates. […]

Tales from the Car Park

There I stood at my post on Tuesday night before the Salford game, waiting for the next car to pass me when up strolled a figure, he of the ginger persuasion (from memory anyway, as the hair appears to be disappearing quicker than mine). “Can you do a blog for Saturday?” he asks. Without even […]
