I’m unsure whether I can in good conscience continue to be a part of We Are Going Up this season, because I very much doubt that Birmingham City are. I didn’t think it was possible to be thoroughly depressed by a turn of events and yet in no way surprised…

Third time lucky?

By | Huddersfield Town, League One | 4 Comments

The upcoming season is vital for Huddersfield Town. After playoff heartbreak in the last two seasons, it is do or die in 2011/12. Manager Lee Clark has come so close, especially last season, to getting promotion to the Championship, and you might even say that this will be his last…

A new season… a new hope?

By | Barnet, League Two | No Comments

‘There is no doubt that here at Barnet we love a drama’. Tony Kleanthous, Barnet FC Chairman I suspect that if you were to ask any Barnet fan of their reaction to the dramatic (to say the least) climax of the 2010/11 League Two season, two answers would predominate. It…
