Northern Ireland v Qatar Gresty Road / International Friendly / 31st May 2015 87 games, 74 grounds, 31 new grounds for me, 277 goals, 100s of laughs, a shed load of beer drunk and around 470 double thumbs up photos taken. However, as Jim Morrison once sung, ‘This is the end, my beautiful friend’. Here … Continue reading

Oldham Athletic v Peterborough United Boundary Park / League One / 4th May 2015 “All’alba vincerò! Vinceroooooooooooò! Viiiiiiiinceeeeeeròoooooooooo!” (Cue huge fanfare closing) For those less culturally-inclined, those are the closing moments of the epic Aria Nessun Dorma from Giacomo Puccini’s opera Turandot; although perhaps it is a tune made most famous by tenor Luciano Pavarotti. No, I wasn’t … Continue reading

Walsall v Crawley Town  Bescot Stadium / League One / 14th April 2015 So, are Crawley my new Morecambe? For regular readers of this blog, they’ll know how I detest the notion of having ‘a second team’, although I suppose I can’t deny the fact that there are plenty of clubs out there who I … Continue reading

Northampton Town v Morecambe Sixfields Stadium / League Two / 7th February 2015 I had gone two weeks without attending a football match. Two whole weeks! Many would think that this would be some sort of midseason hell for me, but it definitely wasn’t. Instead I was having one of the best weeks of my … Continue reading

Bristol Rovers v Macclesfield Town Memorial Ground / Conference Premier / 28th December 2014 My 3rd game in 3 days was to see me cross the River Severn and into Bristol. Every time I’ve returned home to Wales from Manchester, I’ve tried to head over to Bristol to visit either City’s Ashton Gate home or … Continue reading

Coventry City v Notts County Ricoh Arena / League One / 17th November 2014 Last weekend I was cruelly denied ticking off a new ground by Mother Nature. Having rolled up into Mansfield before midday, I was greeted by torrential rain, which soon led to a dreaded pitch inspection, followed by the inevitable postponement of … Continue reading

Peterborough United v Barnsley London Road / League One / 18th October 2014 Having headed south to Luton for some Football League action last weekend, I carried on in a similar fashion this weekend with a trip down south, but this time into Cambridgeshire – more specifically Peterborough. The reason behind my Football League conquests … Continue reading

MK Dons v Leyton Orient Stadium:mk / League One / 3rd May 2014 Once I get an idea in my head I have to run with it. For whatever reason, the city of Milton Keynes has intrigued me for some time now – you could say I was MK-curious. Perhaps it’s the way everyone moans … Continue reading

Bradford City v Leyton Orient Valley Parade / League One / 14th December 2014 I think it’s safe to say that the 24th February 2013 will go down as one of the most important days in the history of Swansea City Football Club. In perhaps the most fitting way to possible to celebrate a club’s … Continue reading
