I had always been intrigued by Colchester United and I’m not sure why. Well it is in Essex so I guess that could be a reason, and we all like the friendliness of Essex folk. I also remember they had beaten the Cherries 3 out of the four times in the recent seasons, with the Read more about Colchester Away 2005: Snatching a Late Winner, I’ve Got This Feeling Inside of Me[…]
I’ll get this list updated. This will list every match I have ever been to watching the Cherries home and away, sometimes I have flown for 15 hours just to get to a match in the last 5-6 years. Before that, I was a regular at Dean Court before my travel lifestyle took over. 2016/2017 Read more about Cherries Matches Attended[…]
Going to the Brentford away match as an AFC Bournemouth fan should have been easy, as in terms of away matches, its pretty close!! It was in my third full season as an AFC Bournemouth regular that I took the trip to Griffin Park, home of Brentford FC, The Bees. I also liked to refer to Read more about Brentford Away 2005: Stinging the Bee Hive on Halloween[…]
One of the worst times of the year being a massive football fan is the close season, which I normally class as mid-May until mid-July. I would often watch the wee Glens (Glentoran FC) in their pre-season matches through the years and this included seeing them play friendlies against the likes of Everton, Crystal Palace, Read more about Eastleigh Away 2004: Alan Connell Alan Grabs the Winner at the Silverlake Stadium[…]
Next up, and for the hell of it we got out of Hereford, heading directly south on the Ross Road, in both cars and conveniently found The Grafton, a quiet country pub in the middle of nowhere with a pond. It was basically a case of “find the next pub, but it has to be Read more about Hereford Away 2009: Part 6 – Countryside, Grafton, Duck Pond, Cherrychat[…]
I don’t remember either of our cars getting lost, or even losing each other the entire day which is to our credit. We made Edgar Street first port of call for the day, estimating correctly that we could park there for free. We had hoped to get match tickets too, but were told it was Read more about Hereford Away 2009: Part 5 – Inflatable Things, Pitch Invasion and Dan’s Cousin[…]
So we had arrived in Magor, on the edge of Newport and of course we were now in Wales when the question popped up “any pubs open yet?”, as it neared 11am, we made sure of finding a pub which was open. We arrived in the Welsh town of Abergavenny and sure enough found “The Read more about Hereford Away 2009: Part 4 – Mardy, Abergavenny, Oasis and Posing[…]
Once breakfast was done, the road trip began “properly”, you can check the earlier articles of road trip part one and part two. We were all now wide awake, the Welsh and English had provided us with a sweeping September sun and the car was chirpy, and full of petrol. We swapped car residents at Read more about Hereford Away 2009: Part 3 – Severn Bridge, Arriving in Wales[…]
I liked the district of Charminster in Bournemouth yet only lived there in my final month of living in the seaside town. I had my own room, with a window in Lowther Road on a short term loan.
