Predictably the regular blogs have fallen by the wayside as rugby comes along and eats up its fair share of my time for both writing and watching, but there is still a passion there for Chesham United. Still an interest…and finally now a point on the board, and two cup victories to celebrate. Continue reading “The agony of choice”
Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear. The rotten start to Chesham United’s season continues; in fact it continues to get worse. It is far too early to call it a crisis, but it really is not looking good. It was a big ask to think we might turn things around against Weymouth, but even the pessimists amongst us didn’t expect a 0-5 hammering, did we? If my stats are right, I think we now share the honour with West Ham and Lancaster City as being the only sides in the top ELEVEN divisions of English football to not have a point yet this season. Continue reading “Lost at sea against Weymouth”
After Tuesday night it was hard to imagine things getting any worse. A trip to Staines who had lost their first two games 0-3 and 0-4 seemed the perfect opportunity to kick start the season…It went wrong. Horribly wrong. Continue reading “Another stain on the early season record book”
Two games in. Two defeats. No goals scored. Not the best possible start to the season, especially as the most recent defeat came in a game played against 10 men for over 80 minutes. But it is early days. No need to panic. But not a time to gloss over things either. Continue reading “Evening All”
A new season started for Chesham United yesterday with a 3-0 defeat at home to Merthyr Town. Bad result. Bad performance. Bad supporter experience. Isn’t it time that the bleedin’ obvious was addressed? Continue reading “Time to open eyes to the bleedin’ obvious?”
So after a World Cup that made it ok to want England to win again, the pre-season friendlies have come around again, the fixtures are out and it is time to start getting excited again for months of heartache, frustration, disappointment and maybe a bit of cheer along the way! Continue reading “Football’s coming…back”
Life has certainly changed since taking a step back from being involved at Chesham United. I feel as though I have more time on my hands. Fewer hassles; more family time; less worrying about what is going on at the club I love. Getting frustrated on a daily basis. Continue reading “Time to dust down the manuscript”
What a crazy weekend, the old cliche about England grinding to a halt as soon as we get a little bit of snowfall so true once again…but then why wouldn’t it? How much should we spend preparing for something that seems to happen once every two or three years? Anyway, enough of that, for me it just meant a busy sporting weekend became a quiet one…and then the repercussions.
Continue reading “Glad it isn’t me!”
I never dreamt that one day I would ever be jealous of a football team that play in pink.
Back in my Chesham United supporting prime, my early 20’s – no responsibilities, no family to support and no kids to bring up – we had some fantastic days. At times my views and opinions, especially in some of the fanzines produced, did not go down particularly well, but as supporters I think we forged some pretty good relationships that epitomised non-league football.
I have lost count of the conversations I had with Andy Leese over the years discussing the fact that things are “coming to a head” and, one way or another, the end is nigh.
