    Stafford - New Street - Ely - Kings Lynn. Not Impossible, just takes a couple of weeks.

    Buses from Peterborough to Melton Mowbray on a Saturday night

    Has the makings of an excellent black comedy worthy of a nomination in the short film category

    I've certainly done the Ely - Birmingham - Stafford & return part of the journey on many occasions but have to admit that the area between Ely & Lynn is strange.

    :roll: Glad it was a short trip!

    Oh well on wards and upwards, I am at work for the FA cup next week, and am glad, as I have bad feelings about the outcome! Hope I am wrong!

    No I really hope I am wrong, and today's 4.1 defeat is the wake up call we needed! :stafford:

    Having seen the goals... it does seem there's a bit lacking in the middle of defence

    But rather unlucky not to have scored a couple in the first half themselves

    Horrible pitch

    Horrid

    Nasty pitch

    Toe poke daisy cutters and it could ping in from anywhere

    Prior to today's match, was forced to endure watching 4 games home and away since my annual holiday! 6 goals conceded without any borough reply! :barf:Today was a wonderful recompense! We had lost our player of the season from last year, due to injury last week, and have had mishaps a plenty, but today we scored, and kept a clean sheet! :banana: On wards, and in fact, "Up the Boro" :stafford: :yay: :bananafunk: :monkeydance: :slayer:

    And relax! :slayer:Off, by train, to Kidderminster on Saturday 21st, for 2nd qualifying round of the the FA Cup. Number 2 son and I expect to be amongst a healthy Boro' following. Going by rail will hopefully be quicker, and I can have a pint or two :help:. If you have nothing else to do, you are welcome to join the exodus; 13.09 from 'Ford!,
