Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.41 – Northampton away

March 23, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.41 NORTHAMPTON AWAY Pre-match So what do I do? Accept that we’re not good enough to make the top six which on the evidence so far this season is hard to argue against? We’ve not been up to matching the better teams unless they’ve been having a really bad day (Doncaster). We’ve been  more ]

Fan’s View – 2020/21 – No.40 – Blackpool at home

March 20, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.40 BLACKPOOL AT HOME Before Tuesday night with the hand brake off, entertainment followed as did a re-igniting of play-off dreams. Pressure, in a good way, therefore remains. Eighth in the table in real time and on a PPG basis. Blackpool though are only three points behind us with two games in hand.  more ]

SEASON 2020/21 No.39 DONCASTER AT HOME The state of play pre-match If we don’t win this it’s “game over” said Deadly on Facebook. For game read season. The league table hasn’t written us off but knowing how we’ve been playing for many games now and our inability to beat any of the better sides so  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.38 – Hull away

March 13, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.38 HULL AWAY If you know your history Every away game without fans is a day out following the boys that we’ll never get back. This one is lamented more than many others by quite a few because for them it would have been a new ground ticked off. Hull City moved from  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.37 – Swindon away

SEASON 2020/21 No.37 SWINDON AWAY Pre-match musings The build-up is so far removed from the usual. I’m sat in front of my computer screen twiddling my thumbs with just under two hours to the off so thought I’d twiddle some fingers too and bang a few words out. This is THE game. THE game because  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.36 – Charlton at home

SEASON 2020/21 No.36 CHARLTON AT HOME Sad Times I was sat at the kitchen table this Saturday morning eating my breakfast when my wife said, “Mickey Lewis has died”.  My reply was “What?” as in that can’t be true but sadly it was. I knew he wasn’t as old as me but hadn’t realised how  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.35 – Peterborough at home

March 3, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.35 PETERBOROUGH AT HOME Our opponents From 2009 Peterborough played three of the next four seasons at Championship level. They’ve not been back since their relegation in 2012/13 and have been in L1 ever since never being close to dropping further. On checking how they finished in each of those campaigns I was  more ]

March 1, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.34 – MILTON KEYNES AWAY Taking stock As a fan with so much emotion invested in my football club I’m constantly taking stock with regard to our strength both on and off the field. As for the latter I’ve kind of parked the financial issues which Covid has brought to professional football, L1  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.33 – Portsmouth at home

February 25, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.33 – PORTSMOUTH AT HOME Pre-match thinking I was able to attend those two home league games when a few fans were permitted to cross the threshold but it was all very eerie. Whilst preferable to being sat in front of iFollow it was miles removed from the match day buzz of old  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.32 – Ipswich away

February 21, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.32 – IPSWICH AWAY I had begun to wonder if my frostiness towards the EFL Trophy was beginning to thaw a little or whether I should actually make a concerted effort to embrace it. Since Premier League U21 teams were allowed to participate I’ve expressed my contempt time after time. I have always  more ]
