  • Berkhamsted 1 Halesowen Town 0 Berkhamsted regained top spot in the Southern League Division One Central after a tremendous battle with FA Trophy semi-finalists Halesowen Town. The visitors had previously gone unbeaten away from home this season.…
  • Personally, I think a lot more could be made of the B & B Cup. About 5 years ago the B & B FA were interested in staging the final regularly at Adams Park. As a “community club” I think this could be really beneficial. The club is also pu…
  • @ChasHarps That’s the word on the street. But why would you sell your ground for housing in the town & near the tube station & move 3 miles away to a ground with no public transport or chimney pots? Answers on a postcard please.
  • Chesham United 1 Taunton Town 1 Chesham failed to capitalise on top spot as they failed to put away 10-man Taunton at the Meadow. Chesham took an early lead on 14 mins but were pegged back 10 mins later. In fairness the first-half was a pretty tu…
  • Personally, although I support the initiative I don’t like the simplistic way it’s being promoted. Had I been charged with doing this (& subject to Adam’s agreement) I’d have had a special shirt made with “Samaritans” on it plus their phone n…
  • “A game of two halves yesterday, Brian” at Vicarage Road. Watford completely blew Tranmere away in the first-half & deservedly led 3-0 at half-time. In the second-half Tranmere fought back magnificently to draw 3-3 with a penalty in the 87th …
  • Good performance - I think we got our mojo back today. Good crowd (8,523) but I thought the atmosphere was rather anaemic without Tom the drummer. Maybe a quiet word would have been better but this guy goes home & away and does his level best…
  • With the players available today, wouldn’t it have made more sense to play Giles Phillips at right-back & Sido alongside Anthony Stewart? Phillips also has an excellent throw.
  • @eric_plant Couldn’t agree more with you about football & betting companies. I enjoy a day at the races & a flutter or two but football has become absolutely swamped by betting companies. I’ve always found it really odd when Football League…
  • Barnet moving to the Hive, Canons Park is only 8 miles away but has been totally successful at losing most of their support. They put on a bus service from Barnet town centre but have recently discontinued it. Neither do they run any supporters coac…
  • What a joke club Stevenage have become. Not deserving of a Football League place.
  • I was hoping Blackpool or Fleetwood would lose so we could bring forward one of the Jan/Feb midweek games to Jan 4th. Financially would be much better for WW to play on a holiday Saturday & “if” we could stretch our lead while the others are pre…
  • Anyone go to Maidenhead? Very interested to know how good Barrow are.
  • Berkhamsted 3 Daventry Town 0 The Comrades maintained second place in the Southern League Division One Central with a seemingly comfortable win over eighth-places Daventry. Sporting an all-purple kit somewhat like Fiorentina, Daventry had as m…
  • Berkhamsted v Daventry Town in the Southern League Division One Central. Berkhamsted were top - as a WWFC season-ticket holder I feel more comfortable watching teams occupying top spot at the moment!!!
  • Nice pieces in today’s Ipswich Star about the Beast & Matt Bloomfield. I imagine half of Felixstowe will be there tonight (Matt Bloomfield’s home town).
  • FFS This is meant to be a thread about how to get to / from Sunderland on January 11th!!!!
  • Marlow FC are another club without a paper programme. It was “too much trouble” according to the official I spoke to. As a traditionalist I find this very disappointing. Nevertheless, clubs should still try and produce a paper programme - but mor…
  • Sorry, it’s Penn & T.G. v Risborough Rangers at Penn as you say.
  • @Buzz Thank you for your very helpful post! Hemel’s game at Chippenham the following Tuesday is also off. So scrub Hemel off the list & get to Risborough Rangers at 2pm if you fancy that!
  • It won’t be a televised game because the outcome of the replay isn’t known until Nov 20th. Tranmere v Chichester will hardly be a TV pull with 2-300 away fans there. If Wycombe win the replay I wouldn’t expect more than 5-600 away fans.
  • @DevC Thank you for that. I actually saw Exmouth Town’s first league game this season at home to Bridport Town. Exmouth won 4-1. There was a player for the visiting team called Gape - I presume Dominic’s brother or cousin as i believe he hails from …
  • It’s what causes football pricing inflation. Club gets relegated from the division above while still paying their players the higher wage structure. “We need to charge these prices as a result”. As somebody said, there should be a price cap for a…
  • I’ve seen lots of games at Wembley & last month saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Carolina Panthers at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (amazing by the way). However, the atmosphere at all UK matches is rather subdued compared with in America. …
  • @blue67 Ipswich to Preston is easy but check with the Highways Agency for overnight closures (0300-123-5000). A14 westbound from Ipswich to M1/M6 junction then M6 to Preston.
  • Perhaps they’ll appoint Nathan Jones? That would be typical.
  • Will the Trust Board & creditors be celebrating Thanksgiving Day bigtime this November?

  • For many years in the 70s & 80s the Chairman & owner of Clapton lived in Botley Road, Chesham. I had an open invitation to go & watch them anytime. In the 80s they had a wonderful, balding left-winger called Tony Mercer. He was easily go…
  • Thinking about it last night I first started following Wycombe in the early 1970s. We had to visit grounds like Clapton & the old Maidstone United ground - crumbling stadia overgrown with weeds. Yesterday we beat Sunderland, a club who, at th…
  • Probably due to the weather but not the best of attendances at games today. The attendance at @MindlessDrugHoover’s game between Kidlington & Kempston Rovers was just 32. It appears that where clubs made a real effort they did get some reward. …
