    Stevenage should now win the league if they avoid losing to the Hatters this Saturday. As for Oxford, they’re blown it big time and I wasn’t impressed with them last week against my team Rushden & Diamonds.
    I’m now licking my lips at the thought of playing Oxford in the play offs and with our excellent form since the New Year feel that we may be meeting Luton in the play off final at Wembley.

    Happy days.

    Funny to think of it as a derby. Growing up in Stevenage, Luton always felt further away than North London because there wasn’t a train link, so while you could wander down to the station and be at Arsenal (or King’s Cross) in an hour without bothering to look at the timetable, for Luton you had to hunt down a bus, which didn’t run in the evenings anyway. So it didn’t really register, and you’d never see a Hatters scarf. But it’s only about ten miles away, if that.

    I was trying to remember the name of the guy who dug up the pitch at Broadhall Way. From memory I think it was Javia Revuelta, but I can only find one reference for that name on the internet, and even that wonders about the spelling.

    Paul,
    Rushden’s form has indeed been good but your players’ rolling over, feigning injury and general unsporting behaviour last week was an embarrassment to watch…..and that was from a neutral I brought along to the game.

    Surely the game against Luton was the real “Game of the Week”? I think Ian was a bit premature and should’ve gone to the game on the Saturday instead.
