The Long and Winding Road

The day began with the usual stomp towards the station on a overcast Saturday morning. There was time for me to get some dollar out and grab a can of the old doctor before hitting up the ticket man for a one day travel card (£5.90 with a railcard). To my surprise I was not just met […]

Perfect. Just perfect. We go to all the effort of putting this shit back online and the first game since we went live is fucking postponed.
