Over the moors. Take me to the moors.

So after our astonishing (and yes it was astonishing having lost the previous three games), over Southend I’ve decided that Solihull is a ground that I will finally get to tick off. “Over the moors, take me to the moors” is an affectionate nod to The Smiths’ Suffer Little Children which I’m sure you all know and if you don’t then you’re simply too young. … Continue reading Over the moors.

Torquay United 6-1 Aldershot Town

This diary entry will detail (thankfully) things other than the drubbing handed down to us by basement boys Torquay. Because as bad as that was, I never got to see the game having been left stranded at Upwey station because of South West Trains late service meant I missed my first connection. I then discovered that the next train to Castle Cary was two and … Continue reading Torquay United 6-1 Aldershot Town

I’ve found Booking.com to be the best for sourcing the … Continue reading Notts County (A) – Matchday Post

We don’t want to hear that!

I’m sure I speak for most when I say we are continually fed up, when on public transport, the constant sound of people playing smartphones (often at full volume) when we are forced to hear music (questionable these days IMO) and inane phone conversations. It’s unnecessary (get some earphones for £10), discourteous (we really don’t want to hear that) and disrespectful (this really impairs the … Continue reading We don’t want to hear that!


When we think of this tag it’s a far more broader church isn’t it. Interestingly, while researching this, in many lists online, Love Will Tear Us Apart didn’t feature at all though I’d consider it fits the bill. I’ll recognise it as a classic but won’t be nominating it as my ten will feature personal favourites. And I hope you will too! In fact the … Continue reading PunkAndNewWaveClassics
