Track the site updates from this page, just to
see what you've been missing...
Yes, yes, I know... it's been a while.
Anyways, here is a mini-update comprising stuff
people have sent me. If you want the site to be updated more often,
why not send me stuff as well? All new for 2005 are:
Fixtures should be out in a few weeks, and who knows,
we may be able to sober the Horseman up enough to do another preview?
In the meantime, content yourselves with the news that this season's
FA Cup embarrassing exit will be at the expense of one of our neighbours:
Arundel and Wick will face-off for the honour of entertaining us
in our first match.
Remember to keep up to date with our Worthing Herald-unfriendly
and we'll see you again in a year or two!
We are still here, honest!
It's just that life has been pretty busy of late, and updates have
been very thin on the ground.
Don't fret - we will get some new material
on here sometime, and when we do, we'll publicise it on the forum
(which is the only "fresh" part of the site at the moment).
Is it that time already? Good job we can bring everything
bang up-to-date with our review of last season, and how apt that
it falls on the day of our last pre-season friendly! Relive the
4-0 highs and the dropped points lows of March,
before reminiscing on how close we came to a double in the final
review of April & May.
Remember to whet your appetite for the new season
with the Horseman's preview.
We hope to bring the usual mix of late and irreverent (or is that
irrelevant?) reviews, and other rubbish we can churn out in the
name of site updates! Remember that the real place for real news
is the real site,
but you can also keep up-to-date with the shady denizens of Woodside
Road on the unofficial
forum (which is categorically not sponsored by the Herald!).
Another two month's reviews from Ian are now online
for your viewing pleasure... read all about January's
successes and February's
are starting to gear up for their debut season - see their page
for details of who they will face, and see the new Profiles
page to find out exactly what Nick "the hair" Courtnadge
thinks of his players.
is also getting a little more lively now the pre-season is underway,
and is always the best place to get WFCSAFC gossip (as the manager
is often too lazy to send the stuff to me!). We won't be dealing
with fixture lists and details of friendlies and other such factual
information - you'll be needing the real
site for that gubbins!
Cheer yourself up and soften the blow of Euro 2004
elimination* by reading this special double-update. Okay, it's all
"old news", but thanks to Ian we can bring you a whole
four months worth of last season in bite-sized chunks. September,
are all now all online for your reading pleasure.
*Trust me - it gets easier! I've been coping
with the pain since last November, when I personally witnessed six
goals fly past a startled defence in Amsterdam.
Some new stuff, some old stuff, and some retrospective
stuff... there's an off-the-wall critique of the Rebels' singing
talents by someone called "Tarquin Stardust" here,
three different Stats overviews,
and the first episode of Ian's review of the season, starting with
We'll be bringing sporadic updates throughout the
summer, but remember to check the Forum
and the Official Site
for the latest scurilous gossip and real news.
Okay, it's been a while, but I've been busy! Non-stop
travelling has put paid to any updates for a while, however we can
now bring you the Slough report
(remember that - it was almost a month ago!), and, in a World Exclusive
(!!!), the return of the one and only Flying Horseman with a 2004-05
Preview, that's sure to offend plenty of our fellow fans around
Anyway, in case people don't know, we finished second
after beating Ashford 2-1, and lost the Senior Cup 2-0 to Brighton.
I say that, as for some unknown reason, the reports have yet to
materialise for those games. Bear in mind the Slough report was
written before these games took place, as well!
B*ggered if we know when there'll next be an update,
but watch this space, and the Forum,
for details. At the latest, we'll be back next season!
(Thurs 20th May, but later!): Amazing what a spot of emotional blackmail
can do?! Ian's come up with the goods, and we can now bring you
Match Reports from the Ashford
game and the Senior Cup Final.
This is particularly handy for me, as I was in the USA for both...
Many thanks to Ian for getting his report to me
this weekend in record time - read about the day the Rebels secured
promotion here. Err, that's
me for the season now, I'm afraid! The reports will go on, but the
site won't be updated until after the Senior Cup Final - so best
of luck to the lads, and I hope everyone lucky enough to go has
a great day out. And fear not, I may be on the other side of the
Atlantic, but I'll be kept abreast of all the scores!
The highs and the lows have been brought into sharp
focus this week on the back of two poor performances - the win against
Leatherhead and the embarrassing
surrender at home to Lewes.
Both match reports are now online for you to relive the moment.
Well, a funny Easter. Despite only securing 2 points
out of 6 on offer, we still find ourselves with our destiny in our
own hands. Read about how we scraped a draw against nine men at
home to Walton, then came
from behind at Lewes, only
to miss a last-minute penalty to end up with the same result (sorry
to have spolied the ending there!).
Nothing else for at least a week - so keep 'em peeled
on the Forum
Another short burst of an update, but we bring you
not one, but two, match reports to drool over. Check out the post-mortem
of the Banstead draw, and
hot off the press, read about our fortuitous victory at Horsham
We're at home to Walton on Saturday, but this is
but an hors d'oeuvre ahead of Monday's banquet away at Lewes. Get
in the mood for the game by checking out our Rivals
page. Don't expect any updates until after that game.
Last update for a short while, as I'm off on International
duty! Keep your eyes peeled on the Forum
for any news and views, and remember to play nicely!
In the meantime, check out Ian's excellent report
from Saturday's win at home to Tooting.
Hot off the press, here's the match
report from last night's win at home to Bracknell.
The frequency of these updates might calm down a
wee bit soon, as I have got a life to live, however if you've anything
you want publishing, please let us know (you can contact us using
our shiny new contact form).
Unfortunately, our resident stat-mongerer is having
a day off today, so no match report will be forthcoming from Corinthia
(I did warn you not to get too attached!). Anyway, all is not lost...
- The final three Horseman
articles have been tracked down to the depths of
a PC in a Ford warehouse
- We also have a way for you mere mortals to communicate
with us here at Rebel Rebels High Command, with our lovely new
Go on, you know you want to...
So, into the Sussex Senior Cup final we go! Well,
we did have a bit of an easy run to the semi-finals after all -
we can bring you:
- a match report
from last night
- a new page with some songs
to learn and sing, because, let's face it, on last night's
performance, plenty of you need some help with the words!
- another new section dedicated to ridiculing our
rivals - read about Horsham,
Lewes, and our arch-rivals Bognor Regis Town (remember them?)
Keep abreat with anything you may have missed by
checking the Updates page.
Two updates in two days! This is becoming a bit
of a habit...
- A Match Report from Saturday's 4-0 win over Marlow
is now available
- And no new material (ahem, Nick!), but the WFCFSA
FC section has been re-jigged to give each report
a bit of space.
And in case you missed yesterday's action (and can't
be bothered to look at the Updates page), don't forget the extra
Cup Runs article and the The
Flying Horseman rants that were added.
Some more reading material to keep you amused:
- Another addition to the Articles page from last
season's programme - "When
cup runs were cup runs"
- We've also got hold of no less than 18 articles
from The Flying Horseman,
taking a sideways look at life on the road with the Rebels last
We hope to bring you another update shortly, with
the rest of the Horseman articles and a guide to Woodside Road.
Feast your eyes on even more content:
Pen Pictures - what you didn't know about our players
Reports - at the risk of this turning into a habit,
and thanks to Ian, we can bring you reports for the Croydon Athletic
and Epsom draws.
We've tidied up the links a little, and added some
- Site Updates
- this saves the front page getting too clogged up with this sort
- This Site
- A very brief explanation of where we're at, and where we might
A new addition is alternative Match Analysis, from
a slightly more sideways perspective than the norm - check out the
Rebel Reports here.
We've added some old programme articles
to the site, for a bit of light reading, along with another WFCSAFC
report. We're currently in negotiations with the shadowy figure
behind last seasons' "Horseman" articles as well - so
watch this space...
One thing we can boast from the "off"
is an unofficial Forum.
We hope that this won't be beset by the problems that plagued the
once-excellent official forum (seized for propaganda purposes, then
killed off by threats of legal action from someone who really should
know better!). Let us know what you think (how? By posting on the
