The Year of the Hornet – 2015

2015. What a year, eh? Played 41, won 23, lost just 10. 72 goals scored, 44 conceded. In just twelve months we’ve seen players transformed, historic promotion won (and lost), and an assault on the richest league in the world beyond our wildest dreams. We’ve even managed to get ourselves a proper nemesis. Over the […]

Second Place is First Loser – Sheff Weds (H) 02/05/15

Hubris is always punished. Before I jot down these quick thoughts, I must point out that I wasn’t able to get anything out in the last week. If I had I would have spoken about the jubilation, the massive pride in the team and club and the general feeling of invincibility I, and I’m sure […]

All Together Now – Millwall (H) 01/11/2014

Heading to Vicarage Road was special for all kinds of reasons on Saturday. Personally, it was the first game I’d seen in the flesh since the draw against Bournemouth on the 20th September. Though the recent spate of questionable online streams have allowed me to follow the action to an extent that I did not […]

Never a Dull Moment – One Month, Four Coaches, No Idea

I hate international breaks. They’re two weeks of vacuous chat, interrupted briefly by crap football played by people that at best I respect for their significant ability, and at worst despise with all my being. The all-encompassing format that UEFA have introduced for the next European Championships means that we’ve had to suffer two of […]
