I made a late decision not to travel for this one though would have loved to have been part of the 230+ throng that gathered on the Screwfix terrace and wherever else in Huish Park. The Shots had signed Myles Anderson on a two-month loan as defensive cover and with Tinkler missing, he made his debut. The name Myles seemed to have got stuck in … Continue reading Yeovil Town 2-2 Aldershot Town
Where to start! Fantastic win for the Shots, obviously, but it’s been a long time since I felt that I had a hangover in the first half. The other thing to note was that when you are in middle age, all that singing and bouncing around and charging at the fence does take it’s toll – couldn’t believe how out of breath I was! … Continue reading Aldershot Town 2-1 Nottingham County
It was the song that echoed back through east London after the game that saw all our hopes and score predictions collapse into a state of disbelief and embarrasment. Considering how the management team had been saying that having had the time to plan and prepare for this game and that they’d done their homework on Dagenham, well it really showed didn’t it. Also … Continue reading “Aldershot get battered everywhere we go”
It’ll probably be a grey day but in the sun and the rain, maybe brighter times lay ahead for us.We don’t want the embarrassment of being turned over again away from home. Our defence must shut up shop to the opposition forwards. I won’t be driving in my car around Primrose Hill or on a night boat to Cairo but will be on a train … Continue reading Shots @ Dagenham & Redbridge
I hadn’t really noticed them missing from the High Street. Well, not much. But then I’d have no reason now to shop in such an outlet. However, Mothercare is another big name soon to be removed from all British thoroughfares with 2,500 store jobs at risk. For many parents, Mothercare inspires warm memories of buying baby clothes or shopping for their first pram. But cold, … Continue reading The demise of Mothercare plus a musical spin
So with Christmas (not Chrimbo… just… no) fast approaching, here’s a really decent stocking filler that I wasn’t aware of and was just listening to the authors on talkSPORT chatting about it. It’s a book on football that’s packed with everything you could think of to do with the beautiful game. But in fact, if you closed your eyes and thought about that for half … Continue reading Got, Not Got: The perfect stocking filler for your over-40?
A game I couldn’t get to because of the high winds disrupting the south western rail network (whole trees on the line as well as leaves) saw goals from substitutes Harrison Panayiotou and Alfy Whittingham hand Aldershot Town a much-needed three points against Berkshire village outfit Maidenhead United. The visitors were so confident that they would win this one they brought almost their entire home … Continue reading A game of two halves: Aldershot Town 2, Maidenhead United 0
Remember the 80s? Things were simpler then. No really, they were. Happiness in the 80s was a ThunderCats bedspread, Hungry Hippos board game and, if you were lucky, a Sony Walkman or a Chopper.
