Happy Birthday And Thank You From Fly Me To The Moon

Fly Me To The Moon has just celebrated a silver anniversary. No one saw that coming when it was first typed, cut’n’paste and photo copied in November 1988. The first ever edition didn’t quite inspire the team who lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday at dear old Ayresome Park. The 25th birthday went rather better with a victory over Bolton Wanderers and a special commemorative edition with staples, colour cover and all the trimmings. The first fanzine came out of high powered ....

Boro To Play Hull At Home

  Boro have been given a chance to be giant killers in the New Year. We were drawn against top flight opponents in the FA Cup Third Round with a home draw against Premier Hull City.

The tie will be played on the first weekend of 2014, Saturday ....

No Steele In Boro For Three Games

It is official now that Jason Steele will be banned for three games. Jason Steele’s professional foul on Leeds forward Dexter Blackstock will now mean that we will be without our first choice goalkeeper for the games with Bolton, Derby and Birmingham City. Time for Jayson Leutwiler to step up to the plate. Initially after Saturday’s game there were hopes that the ban could be less severe if the sending off had actually been for denying a clear goal scoring opportunity. Not to be. ....

Lightbulbs And White Feathers Fanzine

Will the White Feather return to Teesside with those light bulbs? One of many names linked to the empty manager’s chair. But could Venus have other ideas?
