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 […]

Columbo’s Coat

Hello and welcome back once again dear reader to that Sutton United thing you’ve sort of heard of that isn’t a podcast. This week, you’ll be surprised to hear, we’ll be once more bumbling to the far reaches of the North of England to watch grinding League 2 football, with Barrow the latest location to […]

Computer Steam Room

Until recently, I’d never really registered nor particularly cared about the North American holiday of Thanksgiving. It just seemed like something you saw mentioned in the movies and appeared to simply be an early dress rehearsal for the proper business of Christmas a month later. Then I started working for US owned firms and it […]

Welcome Back Desmond

Ok, it’s been a while since we’ve seen a Desmond round these parts. Think it was back in mid-August when we welcomed one of those Northern teams who showed us how to exactly take a set-piece not once but twice in a row as we shipped in two simple goals to the powerhouses that are […]

They Call Me Wendy at Weekends

It’s not happening at the moment is it for the poor boys of lil’ old Sutton United. We can’t buy a win for love or money currently. The worst thing is that we’re not playing that badly really, but we just can’t seem to put the ball into the back of the net. Gravesend & […]

Stakeholder Engagement

Greetings loyal readers and welcome to another Robbo blog! I was messaged by our very own Dukey in the week asking if I was writing for the Barrow game. As it happened, I was unsure myself so I asked our very own Editor-in-Chief Taz and he confirmed I was indeed on duty for today. This […]

A Bru-Dash-Ik Experience

There is a little saying in football often referred to by us old timers that goes along the lines of “a good days drinking is usually spoilt by the ninety minutes of football”. Well, once again, and not for the first bloody time, this was very true as the boys of the Firm made the […]

Arise the Barrow 10! Or 12. Or Bloody 13…

There’s hardcore, there’s really hardcore and there’s bleedin’ bloody stupid. And what category would you call the members of Gandermonium? Because it’s a cold Tuesday night in February and some of us have made the small 315 mile trip North to watch a rearranged football match of the fifth division variety. And that’s before we […]

Summit’s Up. Again.

Never let it be said that we here at Gandermonium are not a sympathetic, caring bunch. Despite Robbo being in the chair for this one, he’s come down somewhat poorly this week (I’m reliably informed it’s not alcohol related either, so that’s our reputation as non-league pissheads further down the kharzi) so we’ve rallied round, […]

I Left my Guts to Barrow

Do you know that I was beginning to believe that Sutton’s consecutive run in the GM Vauxhall National Conference without a clean sheet was going to go the distance. It seemed that I’d be telling my mini-dukes of the great heroics of when Sutton beat Gateshead 9-0 back in September 1990. And how it was […]
