Re: No FA cup replays from next season

The pyramid serves only to kiss the feet of the "Rich 6". Everyone else can get fucked. Jürgen Klopp can sit on his high horse and moan about how many games his team have to play and that has direct and severe consequences for everyone else, big and small clubs up and down the country. The...

Re: Liverpool Post Investigation

It's written in a way that makes the situation seem worse than it is. Whilst there's some evidence of failings, as PotK said a lot of what's written doesn't actually directly relate to SFC, and the bits that do aren't properly backed up by anything more than late, unaudited accounts (which in fairne...

Re: Liverpool Post Investigation

The supporters tried to run one for South shields but not enough interest Sadly its the apathy and i notice it living away people aren't that much bothered. A travel club that runs raffles , fund raising for fan travel with a youth section could provide those funds but the club is frankly dying on ...

Re: Southport 3-0 Rushall Olympic - Match Thread

An absolutely crucial, if perhaps surprisingly emphatic win yesterday. Give Jim the tools he needs to succeed and we'll be well above this position next season. BHG issues notwithstanding, we've got a decent basis upon which to build next season with some genuine quality for the level and if we can ...

Re: Rushall - Home - Sat

If we don't win on Saturday I wouldn't write us off for Shields too soon. We've beaten them twice already this season, both at home and our away record suggests we'd be in a better position playing them away as-is. For the record, I think Saturday will probably end up 1-1 and safety will be confirme...

Re: Early Bird Discounts

I should be eligible for a student discounted ticket for 24/25, and although my circumstances have recently changed meaning it might not represent much value to me, I'll be getting my first season ticket in 3 years next season irrespective of our league status. This will almost certainly be the chea...

Re: 2023 Accounts

Full time football can only be sustained if you have the supporter base or you have a sugar daddy that is prepared lose hundreds of thousand each year. Look at Fylde, who got relegated playing silly wages on gates of 1200.and are flirting with relegation again. Peter Mitchell stated he would put mo...

Re: Southport 4-1 Bishop’s Stortford - Match Thread

It was "expected", but that word is more cautionary than reassuring when referring to SFC. We played some nice stuff, more akin to what I'd imagine Jim would be comfortable playing with a squad that would be capable of it against tougher opposition. The officiating today was some of the wo...

Re: Southport 2-2 Buxton - Match Thread

There's the making of a good team here, but Philliskirk, our second most creative player, can't be tasked with playing holding midfield when we have a perfectly decent 20 year old on the bench who could and should have started over Burgess to allow Philliskirk a bit more of a licence to roam in the ...

Re: Non League Day - email marketing

Finally! Hopefully NLD sees us with at least a crowd of 1200+, and the Club realise email marketing is one of the most effective and cheapest tools at their disposal. I've managed to convince a couple of PL fans from work to come who both live in the area but haven't been to a game this season. I do...

Deva Chat is an interesting read this evening.

Coupled with the doomsday melodrama Deva Chat has a knack of conjuring even when they're do...

Shame they had no beer (don't know if I mentioned that during the game 😉) Really? I had no idea. I do know you can't chew soup though. As for the game, what a win that is. We out-fought and dominated at times but it really seemed like a pair of equals rather than a playoff contender and a relegatio...

Re: Ben Hockenhull

Weirdly, looking at his career he's the second player we've had in two seasons to have come through the Brentford youth ranks. The more you know.

Great news though, let's hope we get him permanently when his contract expires.

Re: News of Former Players - it's back!

Not a former player, but Steve Dewsnip has joined Stalybridge Celtic as their commercial director. One of a few thoroughly decent people we've had at the Club in recent times, I hope he's successful in his endeavours.

Re: Banbury United 0-1 Southport - Match Thread

I'd keep Flowers unless we can get one of either Hockenhull (fairly likely) or Arthur (much less likely) on a permanent at the end of the season. He isn't top class, but he offers an aerial threat and combines well with Anson when they're both fit and available. I agree with the sentiments regarding...

He's been much improved over the past month or so and had another good game last night. I think now we're seeing the player Curzon fans were so upset to lose. Long may it continue and congratulations to Chris!

Re: Warrington 0-3 Southport - Match Thread

Don’t rate Connor Woods, said the same when they smashed us 4-0. He’s lazy, never ever tracks back and gives the ball away a lot. I liked IBR, but we didn’t see a lot of him when he was here. Agreed. I'd take IBR back in a heartbeat, but Woods (although he looks better playing in a suitable system)...
