Once again our very own Bergkamp the Man commits to print the first of a two-parter that will provoke much debate, I am sure. I thank him for his contribution. I’m sure we will discuss it over a pint or two in the new year. If you want to win a copy of Tom Oldfield’s […]

A treasured friend to many of us, Bergkamp the Man in the drinks, relates a tale that will strike a chord with many. I know from years of experience that the stewards face a range of issues on matchday, and having performed that role for the Travel Club many moons ago I am fully aware […]

One of ours has been hiding his light under a bushel, it would appear. I am indebted to North Bank Ned for a piece about the events of one hundred years ago. The first season at Highbury, so similar in many ways to this season just ending. Thank you Ned for a timely and fascinating […]

Thank you so much for sharing your day with us here. This is the last of a trilogy of guest posts on the semi-final. Please also take the time to read the excellent […]

Regulars will be familiar with the wit and passion that Trev brings to the comments, or ‘drinks’, that follow each piece.
