NEW BLOG: Blackpool v Gillingham - Perfect Day
at 19:20 6 Apr 2021


I've gone a bit off piste with this one (mainly because I found a 'timeline' tool on my website). I hope you like it.

There's Jennifer Aniston, some top tunes, a recipe for Thai Green Curry (delicious, by the way - I've just had some for my tea), Kermit the Frog, a song for Embo and some happy goats.


NEW BLOG: Swindon v Blackpool - Swindon Pubs
at 08:58 4 Apr 2021

Who knew there were so many good pubs in Swindon?

Here’s my latest blog, in which I rehash Wolverhampton station, suitably deal with people who irk me, find children in cages and have currywurst on a plate with potato salad.

NEW BLOG: Blackpool v Plymouth & England In Review
at 18:14 29 Mar 2021

Hi Everyone,

What have you made of England in the qualifiers? I guess they are doing enough - and I'm not seeing anything to be worried about. I actually can't believe I've watched us score seven in two matches and am still wanting more. I'd love for Blackpool to score that many 😀.

I've covered the England games in my latest blog (mainly so I didn't have to dwell on the Plymouth game 😉).

Also: is Critch a Vulcan?


I hope you're having a good week.

NEW BLOG: Blackpool v Peterborough United - Going Up?
at 17:19 24 Mar 2021

Ooh it's getting exciting, isn't it?

Can we do it? SHOULD we be getting excited? Will I ever get Black Dog Larry out of my head?

NEW BLOG: Oxford United v Blackpool - Oxford Pubs x Stephen King
at 14:39 21 Mar 2021

Wowzers! What a match that was - and what a day out it could have been.

Here's my virtual pub crawl of Oxford, which includes a wild boar attack, goats heads and Cujo...oh and a bit of football.

NEW BLOG: Blackpool v Burton Albion - Kirkham Pubs
at 20:56 18 Mar 2021

I'm plotting a train crawl to Preston 'when we can', so I head off to Kirkham (not Fylde) on my latest research mission. What's the strangest animal you've ever seen in a pub?

Plus I review a new Blackpool book and show off my new football shirt - all in my latest blog:

NEW BLOG: Blackpool v Fleetwood Town & Poulton Pub Crawl
at 14:16 14 Mar 2021

I'm building up to an epic train crawl when we're allowed back out, so I've been to Poulton on my virtual pub crawl this week. There's a cracking new bar that I can't wait to visit. What is your favourite pub in Poulton and why? Any quirks I've missed?

As for the match? Again disappointing but surely Larry not winning was the priority? That would have hurt a lot. It was pleasing to see us create more chances but we do need to be converting these into goals. Where are they going to come from, aside from Yates?

I'll leave my blog here for you to read:

NEW BLOG: MK Dons v Blackpool - Dinosaurs, Robots, Brewery Goats and a Windmill
at 18:56 12 Mar 2021

Milton Keynes surpassed all my expectations - even if the match itself did the opposite. A triceratops, a frog band, brewery goats, a windmill in a pub - and I finally caught up with one of the robots that deliver groceries. Can't wait to visit for real.

Here's a link to my blog of my virtual trip to MK:

NEW BLOG: Blackpool v AFC Wimbledon - St Annes Pub Crawl
at 11:17 7 Mar 2021

What would you have done differently yesterday? Here are my thoughts in my latest blog.


I also take my readers on a pub crawl of St Annes, discovering some exciting food and...beer in a bag? What's that all about then?
Blackpool v Crewe Alexandra - Lytham Pubs
at 08:39 3 Mar 2021

Phew! That was a gruelling contest, wasn't it? Happy with a point? We can't win them all, so I'll settle for that.

I explore the pubs of Lytham in my latest blog. As ever, if I've missed any corkers, do let me know.

NEW BLOG: Charlton Athletic v Blackpool - Greenwich Pubs
at 12:47 28 Feb 2021

I'm learning to love London. Who'd have thought that possible?

My latest blog involves a pre-match pub crawl of Greenwich, including a pub with its own chippy, a knitting club, a literary beer - and a new twist on the Scotch egg.

NEW BLOG: Portsmouth v Blackpool - Portsmouth Pubs
at 11:09 21 Feb 2021

This is the weekend in Portsmouth that I should have had: a dinosaur-themed brewery, a pub with a sweet shop and a magnificent win for the Mighty Tangerine Wizards 😀.

Is Jerry Yates a cheeky contender for Player of The Year? It's still Maxwell for me at the moment.

I hope you enjoy my latest blog:

NEW BLOG: Blackpool v Rochdale - Blackpool Breweries
at 19:48 17 Feb 2021

What do you think of Blackpool’s local beers? I explore the local breweries in my latest blog.

NEW BLOG: Ipswich Town v Blackpool - Ipswich Pub Crawl
at 14:29 7 Feb 2021

I've never been anywhere other than The Fat Cat in Ipswich, so this blog proved an interesting tour of Ipswich's other hostelries. I find some magnificent beers and end up in a goth bar.

Also there is an important update on Blackpool East station in this blog.

NEW BLOG: Blackpool v Northampton Town
at 08:13 3 Feb 2021

What. A. Goal. So that's 10 in 18 for Yates, 50 in 51 for Simms - and 2 in 2 for Big Marv. Not bad, eh?

I've attached my take on last night's game.

Who are your contenders for player of the year? Maxwell and Big Marv are right up there for me.

NEW BLOG: Wigan Athletic v Blackpool - Wigan Pubs & Breweries
at 08:59 29 Jan 2021

Wow who was expecting that on Tuesday night? I was not at all hopeful going into the match but I was blown away - especially by young Ellis Simms. That's 50 goals in his last 50 games and that's just phenomenal. I don't think I've been this excited about a player since Eric Orie.

Here's my blog about Wigan pubs and breweries - and my thoughts on the match. Enjoy.

NEW BLOG: Brighton v Blackpool - Brighton Pub Crawl
at 08:23 26 Jan 2021

Morning folks,

Sorry this one is a bit late. It was an epic virtual weekender in Brighton and I've only just recovered. Hope you enjoy the blog. It features a pubdog, a pubcat, dogfish - and my plans for Preston station. Also, my quest to find decent gravy in The Extreme South.


Have a great day.

NEW BLOG: Hull City v Blackpool - Hull Pub Crawl
at 14:20 17 Jan 2021

Phew! I felt physically drained after that match yesterday - I don't know about you?

Here's my review of the match - and an extensive pub/brewery crawl around Hull, which is wonderfully diverse.

NEW BLOG: Blackpool v WBA - No Smirking Please
at 14:29 10 Jan 2021

Phew! What a match!

Do BT Sport think repeated close-ups of a man chewing gum with his mouth open is good TV? What did Madine really say to their keeper? And HOW good is Chris Maxwell?

Here's my blog all about yesterday's match. There's a link in there to watch mine and Lee's reaction to the penalties as they happen.

NEW BLOG: Bristol Rovers v Blackpool - 13 Bristol Breweries
at 20:01 2 Jan 2021

Wowzers! I knew Bristol was good for beer - but I didn't realise it was this good. 13 breweries, all of which have tap houses and all of which deliver beer nationally. There's 'liquidised Crunchie Bars in a stout', chocolate banana milk stout and retro German pop.

I miss Chris Maxwell.
