Searching For Soccer In England, The Home of Football

EPL Talk at related • 1 view

Last weekend was a surreal one for me. I spent most of the afternoon in York, as well as the morning in Edinburgh and the evening in Manchester. It was surreal because I was there on a Premier League Saturday, but there was little to no evidence of anything Premier League-related going on in the country that is the home to the world's most popular sports league (and the birthplace of the game).

Book Review: York City: Fighting Back

York City: Fighting Backby Dave Flett Published by Amberley Publishing 2013, £14.99 ISBN: 978-1445614083 [L]ife as a York City fan has largely been a predictable state of affairs down the years. Turn up, watch them be moderate to crap for 90 minutes, go home – simple. The glories are fleeting and to be clung to for far longer than is probably healthy and for the most part of the club's existence, the lowest low was applying for re-election, something which was never realistically going to be refused.

York City’s Glacial Stadium Move

Today, we are pleased to welcome back John Dobson. John signalled York City's return to the Football League firmament at the onset of 2012-13 and it's been an impressive beginning to the season for the Minstermen, currently lying just a couple of points outside the promotion zone. Here, however, John expresses disquiet at the continuing delay of the club's necessary stadium move.

Relegation From the Football League is Not the End of the World

thetwounfortunates at related • 0 views

[T]his year's League Two relegation battle is quite remarkable. Not just for the closeness of thefight, but for the teams involved. All bar one have recently spent time in the Conference and all bar one have gained promotion to the League since two-up two-down was introduced from non-league's top tier.

A Brief Introduction to the League Two Relegation Candidates

thetwounfortunates at related • 0 views

[W]ith ten games or less remaining for virtually every Football League side, most supporters have a pretty good idea of what the next few months holds in store for their team: a promotion push; mid-table obscurity; or a fight against relegation. Honing in on the bottom of League Two, a small but significant five point gap has opened up between Bristol Rovers and Barnet in positions 17 and 18 respectively, leaving seven teams adrift and in danger of playing non-league football next season.

Dear Luton…

Griffin signs up

FC Boro at related • 0 views

The first player to extend his contract with Stevenage this summer is Charlie Griffin according to this morning's NLP. The paper says that he has signed a one year deal and plans to return from injury in time for pre-season. It's the first bit of news that we've heard regarding new contracts for both players and the management and I think it's safe to assume that Westley's contract has been sorted if he has started talking to players about next season.

Boro 1-0 York: Bridges goal enough to see off York

FC Boro at related • 0 views

Thanks to NTM (BoroPics)

A David Bridges goal in the first half was enough to see off York and finish Boro's last season in the Conference on a winning note. The goal came courtesy of a mix up between Josh Mimms and Danny Parslow and Bridges was there to head the ball in the empty goal. There was a party atmosphere in and around the ground and that seemed to get to the players on the pitch as the game lacked any real intensity or competitiveness.

Boro were the dominant force throughout and what could of been a trciky encounter ended up being a walk in the park for Graham Westley's side.

FA Trophy Final Preview

It seems very weird that Stevenage are playing in a FA Trophy Final tomorrow afternoon. Somehow there is not the same buzz there was 2 years ago when Mark Stimson's side played Kidderminster Harriers in the first competitive final at the new Wembley Stadium. I don't know whether it is the fact that the stadium has lost its new 'magic' or that the main aim of the club this season has been promotion from the Blue Square Premier.

[A]s we head into the second week of our 2013-14 predictions, our focus turns to the players we deem to possess the potential to stand out amongst their peers. Whereas season previews tend to focus on teams more broadly, for which players could this be a year to remember on a personal level? Starting at the Madejski, having once accused Lionel Messi of being a racist we'll be watching through fingers at what Reading's new signing Royston Drenthe will do next for although there were more loose cannons at the Battle of Trafalgar, surely none was as potent.
