BLOG – Gainsborough Trinity 1-1 Chester. Post Match Thoughts

Chester’s first match in the FA Cup since reforming ended in something of an anti-climax as we were held to a draw with a solid Gainsborough Trinity outfit. Chester conceded early but managed to equalise before half time through a Nathan Jarman strike. The second half was just awful. Here are a few things I […]

NEWS – Money given to the Junior Blues

The editors of TB&W gave a big ol’ cheque to the Junior Blues the other day when we played Guisley. If you missed us handing it over on the pitch we gave the profits from issue 3 and 4 which totalled £250. Spread the word so we can continue to fund the Junior Blues!

BLOG – Chester FC 4 – 0 Guisley FC. Post match thoughts.

Chester managed to extend their 100% start to the season after completely outclassing a Guisley side who went into the game ahead of Chester on goal difference. Ben Mills hammered, lucked and headed in a hat-trick before Iain Howard placed one in the bottom corner to send home the fans beaming in their lovely new […]

BLOG- Chester 2-1 Halifax. Post Match Thoughts.

Chester rack up their sixth successive win after a battling performance against Halifax. In truth, Halifax were the better team, but Chester made their chances count as Ben Mills bagged yet another goal before Dave Hankin smashed home. An excellent consolation from 20 yards will be small consolation (ha) for Halifax who deserved something out […]

BLOG – Solihill Moors 0-3 Chester. Post Match Thoughts

Chester continue their fantastic run of form and make it five wins out of five. It was a solid rather than spectacular performance against a limited (read: a bit rubbish) Moors side, with the highlight being Jarman’s outstanding volley early in the match. Overall it was a pretty standard day out for the Blues: a […]

BLOG – Mag Review: Stand AMF

You might have noticed something recently. That nagging sensation that all is not right with modern football. Commercialisation, price increases, sterilisation of atmosphere, the idea of a football club being an ‘investment’, governing bodies who chase money rather than govern, fluorescent boots, John Terry… the list is endless. Yet, we, the humble fan seem to have little sway in the […]

BLOG – Altrincham 2 -4 Chester FC Post Match Thoughts

Well we may as well address the room full of elephants. Whilst I didn’t actually see any trouble at the game apparently there was some. I don’t know who was responsible for starting it but I’m hopeful that the authorities will sort it. If you are the kind of bloke who likes to punch people […]

BLOG – Chester FC 2 – 1 Colwyn Bay. Post match thoughts.

Another win makes it 9 points out of a possible 9 for the Blues which is our best start for 34 years (I think). Not bad that. Here are a few highlights from today’s game. 1. Colwyn Bay are a dirty side. Not just nigglely little fouls either, proper full blooded kicking, elbowing, pushing, scratching […]

BLOG – Chester 1-0 Workington. Post Match Thoughts

Ben Mills’ super shot proved decisive today as the Blues won in a hard fought game. That makes it six out of six for Neil Young’s men from only two goals, very efficient. Again, at the expense of writing a proper article, I’m just going to do a few bullet points of things I thought about […]

BLOG – Oxford City 0-1 Chester. Post Match Thoughts

A first day victory for the Blues, the first in six years, was a just reward for an excellent display. Iain Howard’s goal separated the two sides, but the difference was a committed and impressive display of teamwork from Chester. Here are my highlights (in no order or coherent thought): 1) It was really bloody hot. It […]
