Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.5 – Bolton away

August 22, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.5 Our opponents Bolton are another league one club – and there are quite a few of them – who are considerably larger than we are. For their only home fixture in the 21/22 league to date they drew a crowd of just over 16,000. That was a 3-3 draw with  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.4 – Crewe at home

August 18, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.4 There’s a big difference to our previous opponents in that Crewe are a smaller club than we are plus in their two opening league games they’ve picked up just one point: a 1-1 home draw with newly promoted Cheltenham a loss of 2-0 at Portsmouth. So could there be the  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.3 – Charlton at home

August 15, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.3 Just two games in doesn’t give much to go on when trying to judge where a team will end up when the final curtain falls on the season. Try ten in for a better idea. But I can’t help it anyway. After two matches I have us on a 7  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.2 – Carabao Cup Rd 1 – Burton away

August 12, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.2 There’s always an element of disappointment when we’re drawn against a side we’ve met regularly in recent years. Burton very much fall into that category with a trip in the league scheduled there later in the year. It could have been a team from the Championship that we rarely cross  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No1 – Cambridge away

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.1 The Abbey Stadium. Photo, Simon Jaggs We’ve been fairly cooped up for the last 17 months and as far as away football following has been concerned it’s been a 100% shackling. So without doubt there’s plenty of pent up emotion waiting to be released throughout the land but hopefully common  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.53 – Play-off SF second leg

May 22, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.53: PLAY-OFF SEMI-FINAL SECOND LEG The build up Given what happened in part one there appeared little point investing any emotions in preparing oneself for part two at Bloomfield Road. See that mountain over there? Bloody high isn’t it? And get to the top of it only for the mist to clear and  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.52 – Play-off SF first leg

May 19, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.52: PLAY-OFF SEMI-FINAL FIRST LEG Stress Along with untold joy, supporting a football team to ones very core often brings huge stress levels. Will your team hold on to a point or all three in a crucial game particularly those where it comes down to deciding relegation or promotion? And here we are  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.51 – Burton at home

May 9, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.51: BURTON AT HOME Pre-match As the 46th league game of the season approaches the pressure at some clubs will get more and more intense. The final resting positions in the table will depend on how this is handled. If Pompey buckle and we don’t we’ll definately make the play-offs. There’s always this  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.50 – Shrewsbury away

May 1, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.50: SHREWSBURY AWAY Pre-match There are certain pivotal moments in games in any season. The oft referenced Josh Ruffels 88th minute winner at the New Meadow on 7 March last year is one such. Take that away and we would have failed the PPG test and would not have from afar gone through  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.49 – Plymouth at home

April 25, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.49: PLYMOUTH AT HOME Pre-match I knew we had three games remaining but after Wimbledon, or more specifically those two dreadful minutes at the new Plough Lane, I couldn’t have told you which order these matches were coming up in. I’d switched off. Written the season off as far as the play-offs are  more ]
