Liverpool Ladies v Manchester City Women Select Security Stadium / Women’s Super League / 25th May 2016 “I’d rather have AIDS than go to Widnes.” – Joseph Gibbons Widnes is one of the few towns in the north-west that I’ve never even stepped foot in. I did once suggest going to Widnes when we were in … Continue reading

Huddersfield Ladies v Derby County Ladies Storthes Hall / Women’s Premier League North Division / 7th February 2016 “So, do you want to visit the mental asylum?” Now I thought this was a tad forward on Craig’s part (I immediately thought of the ‘sectioning’ episode of Peep Show). It transpired that Craig wasn’t politely suggesting that I may … Continue reading

Manchester City Ladies v Bristol Academy Women Women’s Super League / Academy Stadium / 27th September 2015 During this summer, my Twitter feed was brimming with love for the Women’s World Cup that was taking place out in Canada.

Dinamo Bucharest v Hearts Leigh Sports Village / Friendly / 8th July 2013 So the first trips of preseason, Flixton and Halifax, had been a blast, but the week following was to bring a whole new level of randomness to the preseason fixture list. Me and fellow groundhopper Gibbo were tipped off last week that … Continue reading

Manchester United U21 v Tottenham Hotspur U21 Salford City Stadium / U21 Premier League / 15th April 2013 Last Monday, I decided to dismiss the original plan of going to the pub to watch the Manchester derby and instead I headed to Anfield to watch Liverpool U21s v Arsenal U21s. I was partly persuaded by … Continue reading

I love watching Wales play. Since I’ve lived in Manchester, I have hated missing Swansea City play at home (I make almost all away games, with a few home games to boot), but I have been just as irritated by missing out on several Wales games; the new ‘Friday game, Tuesday game’ cycle certainly hasn’t … Continue reading
