2010 STFC Review: December

First off… A Happy New Year to all Washbag Blog readers. Here’s hoping today’s game with AFC Bournemouth is a success and firmly sets a positive start for STFC in 2011. December was dominated by the weather so only 3 games were played. Town bounced back from a patchy November league form with a crucial three points with a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

2010 STFC Review: November

November was a hectic month with 7 games in League and Cup. As the month started, ‘The Washbag’ looked back 2 years to the end of Maurice Malpas’ tenure at Town. There was an unwelcomed similarity between then and now, poor league position, inconsistent team lacking fluidity and cup progress hanging in the balance. How supportive should we be of

2010 STFC Review: October

After vastly improved performances in September, Town were brought back down to earth with defeat at League One new boys Dagenham & Redbridge. An early Dossevi goal couldn’t inspire Town to build on their advantage, falling to a 2-1 loss in the first ever League match between the two sides. The result was the biggest win the the history of

2010 STFC Review: September

Following the win at Southampton, September yielded better performances and all important wins as Town put their season back on some sort of the right track. First up came a tricky trip to Cumbria to face Carlisle, where Town came away with a credible goalless draw. The result sent Town to the bottom of the league…who would have suspected that only a

2010 STFC Review: August

Despite the despair of play-off defeat the mood around STFC for the season was high. I even put £30 on Town to finish in the top 3… In came Michael Rose, David Prutton, David Ball (on loan), Simon Ferry, Paul Caddis then Thomas Dossevi. On paper I certainly was led to believe Town were asserting a strong claim to mount a

2010 STFC Review: May

I don’t suppose you need much reminding what occurred in May. It was a truly memorable month and culmination to the season of many moments of agony and ecstasy. With Town 4 points behind Leeds, the visit of Brentford to the County Ground required a home win coupled with both Milwall and Leeds picking up no more than a single point each to take it to the final

2010 STFC Review: March

March couldn’t have got off to a worse start. After 13 league games unbeaten, Bristol Rovers did the double over Town with a emphatic 4-0 victory at The County Ground, to add to their 3-0 victory back in December. What a win it was for the rampant Rovers. 3-0 up at half time and very clinical in the counter attack. This was

2010 STFC Review: January

And what a year it has been! A year of the proverbial two halves. After spending January to May fighting for promotion, Town now find themselves looking up and down, more than touching distance away from mounting a real promotion challenge. January 2010 started with around 6,000 Town fans travelling to Fulham for the FA Cup 3rd Round tie and created a truly fantastic atmosphere.
