VIEW FROM THE BAR – Emirates FA Cup 1st Qualifying Rd v Weston Super Mare 22-09

The View from the Bar  Here we go then. From the lofty heights of the Premier League, the Football League, or even the upper echelons of the non-league pyramid this stage of the F.A. Cup may look like a mere trifle – a place in the First Round proper is still four games away, afterRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR BUILDBASE FA Vase v DEVIZES TOWN 19-09

The View from the Bar  Art’noon. And here we go again, still on one road to Wembley and yet here we are setting out on the other one too. I wonder if we’ll still be heading in that direction (on either road) this time next week? We’ll find out over the next four days… OneRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – WLC v BROCKENHURST

The View from the Bar  I can remember as a teenager at school, someone would bring in a little pocket radio and we’d crowd around, listening for the F.A. Cup draw. Of course, back then we were waiting for the third round or onwards, and Cowes weren’t even entering the F.A. Cup at the timeRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR EMIRATES FA Cup Premliminary Rd v HAMBLE CLUB 12-09

The View from the Bar  It had to happen. After years of bemoaning other clubs for not managing to produce a programme for our visit (“the printer’s away”, “the dog ate them”, “they exploded” and other such excuses), on Tuesday evening our copier decided to run out of toner unannounced, and we were left withoutRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR v Blackfield & Langley 08-09

The View from the Bar  I didn’t make it to Brockenhurst on Saturday, but despite the defeat (and the fact they missed two penalties), it sounds like we were rather unlucky not to come back with at least a draw. Of course, we have the opportunity for a measure of revenge this coming Tuesday whenRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – EMIRATES F A Cup COWES SPORTS v Totton & Eling Tue Sept 1st

The View from the Bar  Sometimes I opine in this column that there’s not much to talk about. Now that’s definitely not the case this time. In fact, I’m pretty sure that to stop this running to half a dozen pages, I’m going to have to spread it out – as best I can –Read More

View from the Bar – Hamworthy United 22-02-20

The View from the Bar Last weekend was a bit of a washout, all things told. It was gutting that our day out at Brockenhurst fell foul of the weather, although truth be told had we gone, even with drying-out time in the licensed hostelries, it had been shaping up to be a soggy one.Read More

View from the Bar – v Baffins Milton Rovers 04-02-20

The View from the Bar If you’re reading this, then at least we got the game on tonight (although after Saturday’s Reserves postponement and the weather over the last couple of days I wouldn’t be surprised if this column gets consigned to the growing pile of VFTB’s never to be read. And, if you areRead More

View from the Bar – v Fareham Town 28-01-20

The View from the Bar Evening all. It’s always a pleasure to welcome Fareham and their merry band of japesters to Westwood – hopefully a decent contingent will have overcome the vagaries of the local ferry timetables to make it over tonight. I’ve always had a soft spot for Fareham and their support (and haveRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – v AFC STONEHAM 25-01-20

The View from the Bar Art’noon. Looks like another straigtforward affair this afternoon, then. Ahem… Gulp. Just what we need when we’re battling for points down the wrong end of the table, eh, a visit from AFC Stoneham? They pipped Amesbury, Hythe and Romsey to the Division 1 title in a four-horse race last year,Read More
