David Niven beats Manchester United as Championship beats the hype

18 Aug

Having returned from Bournemouth, Brentford prepare to visit another beach town for Tuesday night’s trip to Blackpool. With games at Cardiff City and Brighton also to come, the Championship is providing as many chances to dig out the bucket and spade as opportunities to watch football.

To read the rest of this article, season 2014/15 is now available to download onto Kindle (and other electronic reading device) in full. Containing additional material and even some (poor) editing, you can get it here for less than the cost of a Griffin Park matchday programme or Balti Pie.

 Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, I need to make more space on the site for any follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further along.

    Welcome to Bournemouth! Its a strange town, which does not take too kindly to anything remotely football. The town barely tolerates its club, making it kind of Chiswick on a larger scale.

    I too saw that rather brilliant series of interviews with David Niven, but with the sound!

    Were you also entertained by the strange sight of the Hamilton’s opening up a branch of UKIP being heckled by gay rights protestors? Just another day in Boscombe.

      Yes. We did see the UKIP branch although missed the Hamiltons – for which one can only be thankful. Whilst I’d managed to obtain a few photographs I wasn’t overly keen on giving them the oxygen of publicity.
      On the flip side, I got to pose with a Dalek

    As for the cow story. It did bring the town to a standstill one day last week. Traffic jams for miles!
