HEREFORD FC | Flagging Up Problems

Before this season, Hereford FC had only lost 10 league games in their entire history after gaining three successive promotions as the phoenix club of Hereford United. However, the Bulls have now more than doubled that tally following a season of struggle in the sixth tier. Peter Beadle – who took them to the National League North from the Midland League Premier Division – was … Continue reading HEREFORD FC | Flagging Up Problems

SHEFFIELD UNITED | Drawing Out The Season

As the football season heads into its final months of existence, there are fewer and fewer games with actual stakes. However, if one were to attend a match where promotion or relegation is still a possibility, every minute can dictate how an entire season concludes. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Sheffield United’s EFL Championship clash with Millwall had much on the line for both teams. … Continue reading SHEFFIELD UNITED | Drawing Out The Season

LEYTON ORIENT | A Sickening Defeat

The National League title race is reaching its conclusion but there are still several teams who fancy their chances of winning the division and claiming the only automatic promotion place. Wrexham and Leyton Orient are two of the teams battling for top spot and they faced off against each other in an early kick-off live on BT Sport. For Wrexham, they knew a win in … Continue reading LEYTON ORIENT | A Sickening Defeat

STOCKPORT COUNTY | Anticipation Blossoms

Whenever I think about which club’s fans have suffered the most in recent years, I’m always drawn to Stockport County’s. A decade ago, County supporters were backing a team in League One. However, three relegations in four years took the Hatters into the sixth tier of English football and they’ve struggled to make themselves real promotion candidates since. Last season, though, things began to click … Continue reading STOCKPORT COUNTY | Anticipation Blossoms

SL BENFICA | Living It Lage In Lisbon

Like so many other European capital cities, Lisbon is home to a number of major football clubs, with the two most famous of these being Sporting CP and SL Benfica. They form part of the ‘Big Three’ in Portuguese football (along with FC Porto) as the regular title contenders who have never been relegated from the Primeira Liga. However, this year Sporting have slipped to … Continue reading SL BENFICA | Living It Lage In Lisbon

AFC FYLDE | New Year, Different Team

On paper, a groundhop to AFC Fylde looked unrewarding. Wrexham were aiming to halt a run of four straight defeats and record their first points of the new year against their National League promotion rivals. Meanwhile, plunging January temperatures and Northern Rail industrial action made the train ride up to Lancashire very unappealing – particularly with Shrewsbury fans heading to neighbouring Blackpool for their game … Continue reading AFC FYLDE | New Year, Different Team

CREWE ALEXANDRA | A Frantic Finale

Football hasn’t been kind to me since the turn of the year. My opening blog post came from Salford City where Wrexham were comfortably beaten and things didn’t pick up in the following games. Consecutive defeats to Dover and Bromley left me reeling for a change. And with the Reds in FA Trophy action, it provided myself – and some of the Wrexham players – … Continue reading CREWE ALEXANDRA | A Frantic Finale
