Latest CTFC blog
SEVEN points out of nine, two clean sheets and one goal conceded. Even the most demanding of Cheltenham fans would struggle to be disappointed with that return, but will also know it doesn't quite tell the whole story. Bar a ...

The final curtain
Before I start on this stream of consciousness, I just want to thank everyone for the mostly-positive reaction to the last post. As I write, it has had 971 views, which is the second-most of any post on this blog (this is number 194) and is beaten only by t...

Decision time
It is traditional for Cheltenham Town fans to travel to the last away game of the season in fancy dress and some are now pondering their costumes for the trip to Spotland on Saturday. Can I suggest that they look for clown suits - or maybe they could go dre...

An all too familiar story
Spineless, gutless, pathetic, unacceptable, bottle-job - pick your phrase or adjective of choice, as they are all an accurate description of our second-half 'performance' yesterday. An all too familiar tale, a Ground hog Day of our season, and I am among th...

So that's that then...
Ah well, it was good while it lasted. Hope you enjoyed it. What, I hear you ask...? Those 11 brief, unforgettable, tantalising minutes when Cheltenham Town had a chance of getting into the play-offs. Those 11 minutes between Byron Harrison's 68th minute goa...

Graham Miles passed away aged 73 the other day. One of my early favourites when I got into snooker in the early-mid 70s. RIP Graham.

With a week to go before the season starts, this trip to Kidderminster was meant to be something of a dress rehearsal for Bury next week. I went to Aggborough expecting to see a starting 11 and system pretty close to that whi...

Thank you Browny
On Thursday night, I was at Whaddon Road for a fantastic evening with 11 former CTFC players, who all served the club with great distinction. During the evening, they were asked what it was that made Cheltenham Town special for them. As director Tim Russon ...

Which way is the beach...?
So now it is pretty much official - the season is over with four games to go, and we can get the travel brochures out. The weather is telling us that at least, and there wasn't much at St James' Park on Saturday to persuade us that these last 360 minutes (p...

Over-reaction
I wasn't going to write a blog on last night's game, then I came home and clicked through my Twitter timeline and changed my mind. The reaction to the defeat was, in many cases, over the top, and a complete over-reaction in my view. It just mirrored what ha...

Speechless
After a night's sleep, I still haven't got my head around yesterday's mad happenings at Kingsmeadow. For 95 and a half of the 99 minutes, it was the perfect away performance - we controlled the game, were solid at the back, dangerous up front and running th...
