Awaydays are the best days. In fact to me they usually dwarf pretty much any home game no matter how big or important that may happen be. More often than not, a good away trip to some baron decaying wasteland can turn into a better day out than a big local, potentially mobhanded rival at home. In fact when I think of the days that I was going to the match on a regular basis, there aren't many home games that instantly spring to mind, not at least from my time watching football as an adult.

Aside from a week or so in July or August :D, it get's pretty cold up here. And as much as we have to admit that our true staple and best selling product is our tees, we do love a good sweatshirt. It's a garment that sits well with us and is perfect for layering up in the cold Northern winter, or even for pulling over a button down shirt to head out for a few scoops on a cool Summer evening. Either way, it's an all year round wardrobe staple. When we first embarked upon this journey, we decided from the get-go...
