Re: Match Thread Halifax Town v Southport - FA Trophy

What a great win and definitely brings a smile to my face (for a change). Ian will be pleased with the money, despite what he was saying in the interview. Plus a couple of thousand pounds from the streaming too. Who knows what will happen now. I guess it all depends if we get the grant or not. No po...

Re: Golden Days

What a wonderful read for those of us who were there in the sixties and seventies and you younger folk who want to know what it was really like. Fantastic memories of doing the same things as the author and remembering great players. Thank the Lord that most people's two favourites, Eric Redrobe and...

Re: Favourite kits

While on the subject of kits, when a new one is due do you think there is any chance of getting exactly the same as Wolves kit (the colours and design I mean, with Port logos on obviously!) or at least as near as possible given the probable different manufacturer? I always admire their kit when I se...

Re: Match Thread - Southport V Curzon Ashton

I am afraid that people who say that there is a complete lack of ambition at the Club appear to be right. I don't blame Ian Kyle for this as he has done his level best to keep things on an even keel and I doubt that he has limitless funds. Sadly I am afraid that I do blame Liam Watson. I accept that...

Re: Match Thread - Southport V Curzon Ashton

We do not need to change the system. The Manager has at last found the right system but it took him 13 League games to change his stubborn mind! What we need to do is learn how to defend free kicks and decent corners. What is the coach there for? He is seemingly not doing his job. No excuses now. Im...

Re: Match Thread - Spennymoor V Southport

Mr C's figures are exactly correct. They are cumulative. We have already earned £8,250. If we can win another round the total win will be £13,500.

Re: Match Thread - Spennymoor V Southport

A much better performance and an unexpected win. Penalties always exciting! Look how much easier it is with an extra midfield player! Why has it taken so long for the Manager to realise that? What's more, and just as important, we earned £8,250 in prize money this week!

Re: FT: Guiseley 4 - 2 Southport

If you listen to the interview, Liam, although more upbeat than usual, is basically blaming the players, not himself or the coach. Firstly, they are his players. Secondly, it is unfair to blame young players at this level if they are unable to play to a system that does not work for them. The manage...

Re: Southport 1 - 1 Alfreton

PotK has it spot on! The management do not even acknowledge that there is a problem so what chance have we got while Liam runs the Club? Excuses about age and inexperience are no longer good enough. Everyone can see that our tactics are abysmal and out of date. Sorry to the loyalists, but it is time...

Re: Southport 0 - 1 Farsley

We are NOT comfortably top half of the table! If nothing changes we will be fighting relegation at the end of this season. A new management team is desperately needed somehow. If Liam himself can't see that then he is not the man we all thought he was. Yes, he has been brilliant for us over the year...

Re: Gateshead V Southport - Match Thread

The Manager has had 25 games this season to sort his team out! Squad is totally unbalanced with too many defenders and not enough midfielders. Bainbridge is a good centre half but not a midfielder. I am beginning to feel sorry for him. The forwards are totally ineffective. Archer is our only real go...

Having taken the night and my breakfast to compose myself I find that of course everything has now been said. There are some very good posts on here, not the least from Port on the Kent and YTT. Just to sum up, York were very professional, faster, fitter and cleverer than us. We played fairly well w...

Welcome back Jordan!
I think he will do a good job for us and score a few important goals, just what we need.
Now, just a good attacking midfielder and we've cracked it. Come on Liam, find that man!

Re: Transfer Rumours

Loan signings just show a total lack of ambition. They are a temporary stopgap to cover for somebody else (ie Marcus Wood in this case). We need a creative, attacking midfielder, not a holding midfielder. We have a very small squad and any injury will diminish it. Whilst I am happy enough with the c...

Just wanted to add to the praise for the commentary and camera work, all excellent, thank you.
Liam's interview much better than previously and a good solid performance from the whole team on the field.

I totally agree with Mr Grumpy (Redrobe Fan). I look forward to all the matches, even the Friendlies, and went to a couple of them. I get upset and dispirited when we lose - ask my wife! So does my pal, (ask his wife!). Liam seems to be not too bothered in his interviews. We have lost some good inco...
