The Magnetic Appeal of The Eagles

It’s unusual for me to being doing a blog on the day of the game and I am probably being optimistic that many people will read it and to be honest I’m probably being optimistic that anybody reads my drivel at all but, here goes anyway. Really just wanted to cover three aspects. One of…

What’s In A Squad?

Seems like a good time to launch another blog especially as I haven’t for over a week now. Perhaps this one will get lost in the myriad of all other things that will be going on this weekend, not least of which is tonight’s crucial game against The Scorchers. Plus, non-Eagles wise but very much…

Home Again And Time To Reflect

Well, it was a very, very, very long trip back and a very quiet one too. I would hope and imagine a lot of reflection went on in those comfy leather seats as we blasted back up the highways and byways of this green and pleasant land to our own beds. Yesterday was a surprise….

What’s In A Name?

When I first saw Jaygun, oops sorry, Jaysean Paige in practice after he arrived on these shores it confirmed what I thought, somehow, some way Dave F had found an absolute star. See, I follow NCAA basketball through the winter too and West Virginia’s Mountaineers were a team I’d remembered. Why? Mainly because of their…

Reflections

Sometimes the timing of a blog can be all important. As I made my way home from last Friday’s wonderful night’s entertainment I had already formulated in this little brain of mine my feelings ready to outpour them for your consideration. I awoke on Saturday feeling pretty much the same and the, life too over…

Look Forward? Look Back? Think Friday!

Well, that was a great weekend results wise and to be 3 – 0 going in to Friday’s game is exactly where we wanted and needed to be as make no mistake, this Friday is going to be very tough indeed. London indicated with their performances at The O2 that they looked serious contenders and…
