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 […]

Uncomfortably Muggy

It’s been all go in the Republic this week. Big news and big moves being made all over the shop, but the biggest of all was of course the lads getting their historic first FL win on Saturday against Stevenage, which finally got that monkey off our backs after a couple of late disappointments recently.

The Promised Land

As a lifelong Fulham fan the 2020-21 season will very easy to brush under the carpet. To be fair when I last got to Craven Cottage in the flesh they were in the Championship and by the time I get back there next season (fingers crossed) that’s where I’ll still find them. Although in the […]

Winnin’ the Pools

So, the first match of the 2019/20 league season has finally arrived. And in the same manner as last time out, we’re jogging back up North once again. Hartlepool is the destination this time, and Victoria Park is the place to be. It might not be the longest trip we’re going to make this season, […]

If I Had a Hammer

Greetings readers and welcome to another Robbo blog for the league fixture versus Hartlepool United.  Let me recap the week’s events where yours truly had to visit the wonderful town of Dover for work purposes rather than National League ones. I think it is fair I should state at this point that there are only […]

No Massa McCarthy

Sutton United versus Hartlepool United, down Gander Green Lane, in a league match. Na, doesn’t sound right that. But then again, in a few months time, we could be in a real surreal place, if things go down a particular path. But let’s not get too carried away with ourselves here, It’s not the Surrey […]
