Re: Fans at Sporting events. Up to 2000 in Tier 2

Interesting to see how the National League work it when there are member clubs across all three tiers. Seems unfair to allow fans at some venues and not others. I can't imagine a situation where some teams can have a few thousand in and others none. Imagine the financial fallout of this as well as ...

Re: Gateshead V Southport - Match Thread

JG - we have to be more ambitious than this. Yes, there were moments when we weren’t so bad, and football is a game where things can go wrong or right almost by chance. But after ten games it’s difficult to see any progress from last season. I know we’ve been lower than this, but what kind of conso...

Re: Bradford (Park Avenue) 0-2 Southport - Match Thread

Absolutely. The initial signs are of a typical Watson season. Tight budget, difficult to watch, better away than at home. Like history repeating itself. [/quote] Hopefully it repeats a league title, albeit I can’t see it being this season. A young team who will only get better with time. Personally...

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

Paul Rutherford still turning out for Wrexham and played 90 minutes in their win at Hartlepool last night. Well done Paul. He always worked his socks off for us. Excellent Wikipedia description on their page for him too: “Paul Leslie Rutherford (born 10 July 1987) is an English footballer, currentl...

Re: Bradford (Park Avenue) 0-2 Southport - Match Thread

Good win last night but it hasn't taught us anything new. We're just an average side aren't we? Better than the bottom half, but not as good as the top teams. The question is ambition - are we going to accept mediocrity or make a push?. How much do we want 'it'? I have no doubts that Marcus Wood wil...

Ben McKenna and Frank Mulhern play in a convincing 2-0 victory v Southport.

Re: Southport 2-3 York City - Match Thread

Not sure who it is in the wall that didn't jump for their second? It seemed to go just over his head... You get a better view of both their free kicks from behind the goal here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_t1tqzO6rZ0 There's a very complimentary comment about Southport under the video

Re: Southport 2-3 York City - Match Thread

Any refunds should be 50% not the full price. The argument that the 2nd half was free to watch doesn't hold up as it wouldn't have been put on YouTube free of charge if people hadn't already paid for the stream. Personally I won't be asking for £4.50 back from the club but I wouldn't blame York fan...

Re: Southport 2-3 York City - Match Thread

To lose the game in that fashion is extremely disappointing, naivety cost us. Poor decision making has costs us 4/6 points in the last two games, it’s so cliche, but you’re at your most vulnerable when you score. Totally agree with this. Game management was schoolboy. If we can sort that out, we'd ...

Re: Southport 2-3 York City - Match Thread

We looked slightly impressive going forward, if a bit one dimensional. Watson took his goal well and he has a real air of excitement for me whenever he gets the ball. I don't care if people disagree with the foul that led to the free kick for the third goal, that's irrelevant. You have to then defen...

Agree with James on commentary that the free kicks were given away needlessly. Poor game management.

Re: Southport 2-3 York City - Match Thread

Challoner throws it back thirty yards for Hanford to boot it seventy yards forwards and out for a throw in. That is prehistoric.

Re: Southport 2-2 York City - Match Thread

That was lazy defending. Very soft. Obvious that was going to be a short free kick routine. Players look like they couldn’t be arsed then

I’d say it was. Nice bit of skill bought the trip. Lovely free kick, fair play.

Oliver looks class.
