Fed up but still going…

I’m absolutely not the only one, but I am not enjoying life at the moment. This being stuck at home business is tiresome. Necessary, but tiresome. I have been working from home since the afternoon of 12th March, the day after Kingstonian’s loss at home to Cheshunt. My company is actually very good, and I’ve …

An Early End of Season

Well, to say that the world has changed is a dreadful understatement. Quite when it will get back to what passes for normal is anyone’s guess. If anyone gives a timeframe, it is precisely that, a guess. No-one knows, and it’s very, very unsettling. I have been working from home now for nearly three weeks. …

A deficit of energy

Well, just to prove that the blog isn’t dead (it’s not well and coughing a bit, but it’s not dead), here I go with a small amount of blabbering. There’s been little blogging recently because the muse has gone on holiday and claimed political asylum somewhere. Football has not been enjoyable at all recently, a …

Currently on on hiatus…

In case you’re wondering what’s going on with this blog – the obvious answer is that it’s not being updated at the moment, mainly because I’ve not been to that many Kingstonian games recently. There are a few reasons behind it, but currently there’s not much to say. I did write something earlier today but …

I may be turning into a wimp

In days of yore, when the pass back to the goalkeeper was allowed (or rather when the goalkeeper was allowed to pick the ball up from a back pass), I didn’t mind the cold weather games so much. From my teens to my early forties, it was just a case of putting on one or …

Welcome to the world of weird

Everything seemed to be going wrong – Dan Bennett suspended, Eddie Dsane cup tied, Ollie Cook injured, Louie…well, you know, and then about twenty minutes in we lost Reece Hall to what looked like a bit of a nasty knock. As soon as Reece was helped off the pitch, it felt like our chances of …

Things keep happening…

It’s been, shall we say, an unusual time in Kingstonian life in recent weeks. And I mean unusual even by Kingstonian standards. After our wonderful win over Woking in the FA Trophy, I really looked forward to the game against Corinthian-Casuals. But the weather won the day, there had been plenty of rain and then …

Never saw this coming…

It’s true. I should know by now to trust this set of Kingstonian players. But I never saw us beating Woking in a million years. Yet here we are, in the midst of yet another mega cup run, having deservedly beaten a really good team from two divisions above who no doubt given their glittering …

A thoroughly epic run ends

I’ve been with Kingstonian FC since May 2001. Since then, as I’ve mentioned before, the FA Cup was something other people experienced. Until this year. And, by ‘eck, it was fun. First port of call with this bit of chaotic scribbling goes to Hayden and the players. I wrote on more than one occasion that …
