Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v Newcastle

Newcastle at home Saturday 10 January 2015 Geordies are a curious bunch. A Marxist analysis of the Geordie psyche would, no doubt, point to them as being victims of a remorseless bourgeoisie; a bourgeoisie that seeks to keep the proletariat in its place; to keep the down trodden under foot. In some places, this is […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v Watford

Watford at home FA Cup Third Round Sunday 4 January 2015 It is not a difficult journey from Watford to London for the thousands of yellow and black emblazoned supporters who will take up the opportunity afforded by cheap tickets and travel to a proper football ground. Sadly, their choice of route is restricted, once […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Tottenham v Chelsea

Tottenham away Thursday 1 January 2015 At some time between 1400 and 1440, an anonymous bard sat down and wrote a ballad in Middle English, the English of Chaucer and Mallory, or rather, given the time, something between the two. The ballad was, almost certainly, the result of an oral tradition going back into the […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Southampton v Chelsea

Southampton away Sunday 28 December 2015 The idea of taking a holiday on a cruise ship has never interested me. In America, cruise vacations (as they insist upon calling holidays) are huge business. Americans, typically only take a week off work at a time and are uncertain travellers. On the whole they don’t like foreign […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v West Ham

West Ham at home Friday 26 December 2014 A short walk down Green Street is enough to make one appreciate that, while London as a whole is thriving, poverty and depravation still exist here in vast pockets. The decay and obvious impoverishment of the area demonstrate the desperate straits that those who live in there […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Stoke City v Chelsea

Stoke City away Monday 22 December 2014 The day after the winter solstice is not a good day to travel to outer reaches of northern England for an evening kick off. The sun will barely rise above the horizon so close to the Arctic Circle and will have set many hours before kick off. Visitors […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Derby County v Chelsea

Derby County away Tuesday 16 December 2015 League Cup The north of England was, in the late 18th and 19th centuries, the equivalent of today’s Silicon Valley for cutting edge technological and scientific innovation. Derby was at its heart, both geographically and intellectually. The North fulfilled this role because, in those days before motorways, airports […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v Hull City

Hull City at home Saturday13 December 2014 Well what a week we are about to have. Next Tuesday we play Derby County, the team that boasts the shortest supporters in football and this Saturday we play Hull City, the team that comes from the fattest town in Britain. Now there is some debate as to […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v Sporting Lisbon

Sporting Lisbon at home Wednesday 10 December 2014 We are frequently told that London is the sixth largest French city in the world with somewhere in the region of 300,000 of our Gallic chums residing here as our neighbours. Some of these are tax exiles fleeing the perceived egregiousness of Hollande’s regime. Others are simply […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Newcastle v Chelsea

Newcastle away Saturday 6 December 2014. In the centre of Newcastle stands a plinth or, as some may term it, a column and on top of it, carved in local stone, is the statue of Charles Grey, the Second Earl Grey. I remember in the early 1980s, while being ushered by the local police along […]
