An odd title for this weeks ramblings but if you stick with it, all will become clear!

Who would have thought it. Ten games into the season and Borough games are now averaging 4.5 goals a match!

So the alarm rang out at 5am and the great journey to the far flung North West lay ahead. Well it did for some diehards but I opted for the easier journey to the outskirts of Uckfield. The temptation of a 16 hour round trip to Barrow lingered very briefly, but having done the jaunt twice in recent times, I took the coward's way out and decided that 20 miles was far more acceptable than 335!

So, Saturday 4th September was Non League day and boy did we get some coverage! With 2 red cards, a heroic display from a Boro God and some bloke called Terry at the Lane, the Gospel according to Garry and Nick filtered on to the national radio airwaves!

Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there was a BIG football club .... fire breathing dragons sent throngs of burning flames at all that crossed their path and many a foe shuddered at the mere thought of being visited by such a monster!

After a self imposed exile (the tail end of last season was too depressing to blog about) I am back to dip my toes tentatively in the waters of Blogworld again. With the summer behind us and that debacle of a football tournament, I know I was not alone in the anticipation of the new campaign. Some old friends hung up their red shirts, and new ones have taken them off the hangers to wear the Boro Martello for the first time. A warm welcome goes to all the summer signings.

Now, where were we? Oh you mean you have actually missed this nonsense? Well I do apologise for the lack of blogging but having moved into a broadband-free property, I couldn't get online to get this through. But I am back, whether it be by popular demand, or just my whim, and the blogs continue.

I was sitting watching the FA Cup replay last night between my beloved Eagles and some Midlands lot, and it suddenly occurred to me. I have just taken a winter break from the blog spot. It wasn't a conscious decision but not having travelled to away games and only having a depressing FA Trophy replay defeat to endure, there has been little if any inspirational events to spur me into action. Having played twice at The Abbey in front of 14 away fans in the space or four days, and there is still no news on whether it was the same 14 fans at each game, and then taken a draw at Tamworth, Priory Lane actually staged a game for the first time in 25 days when Boro v Cambridge, part IV went ahead on a very chilly Tuesday evening.

Not been a good week really has it. The Sussex countryside looked glorious as the blanket of snow covered hills and vales. Well, pretty it maybe but what good is pretty to die-hard football fans? Not that is has been a local issue as United Kingdom PLC ground to a halt. It must be bad when all you can resort to is a few highlights on Saturday night terrestrial television. For only two Premier League grounds to be fit for play shows how crippling a bit of snow can be. Of course, it's not just the fact that a game is called off, it's all the behind the scenes roll on effects that can affect clubs in more ways than one.

So the New Year arrived but sadly on the pitch there was nothing new to warrant a champagne cork popping fanfare. After the dogged spirit we showed on Boxing Day, one or two of us even thought we could go one step further and grapple the three points from the visit of Creepy. In subsequent reports Garry called us "lethargic" and to be frank, that was quite a polite way of putting things. I can honestly say only one display ever disappointed me more in recent years, and that was a 5-0 drubbing at St Albans. Keep that game in mind, it pops up again later.....

With the schools breaking up for the festive celebrations, the sight that greeted many a child last Friday brought alive a magical winter wonderland.

What a refreshing change this week made. Put quite simply, we won! Not only a victory but with a clean sheet as well. The FA Trophy may not be the glamorous tournament the FA Cup is but when it's the only one you are left in, it matters! OK, we are still in the Sussex Senior Cup but that doesn't have Wembley as a reward (although Priory Lane is a very close second!) The Park Side Road ground looked no different to the last time we visited and it is safe to say that no improvements had been made to the home of The Wings. It still had all the olde worlde charm of a lower league football club. Call me old fashioned but there is something about a playing surface that is covered with fallen leaves.

Well, what a seven days I have had! Saturday of course hailed the visit of Cambridge United, a club that last year had the audacity to take all six points off us but were arguably the best team we played either home or away. You don't get into the play-offs two seasons in a row unless you have quality. On that basis and our recent form, one could have feared a blitz, but once again we seemed to rise to the occasion of the big club visiting and gave a very competent display.

So the history of Eastbourne Borough Football Club was further enriched over the past week end with the antics at Chester.
