Re: Carry on football!

Very peculiar thread, this. Titled, 'carry on football', but it's just a moan at the government. Haha. I would watch Carry On Football. Roy Hodgson has a naturally put-upon kind of demeanour, I could definitely see him in a hospital trolley rolling down some stairs. You could also have Allardyce in...

Re: Southport 1 - 1 Alfreton

Hog roast was good. Pig murder supporter :-) I enjoyed the match experience as did the young man I brought to the game. Very relieved at our equalizer scored in "Fergie time". Felt almost like a win and at least our run of home losses has been halted. Crystal Palace - I mean Alfreton - ap...

Re: Southport 0 - 1 Farsley

Well what can I say. It was lovely (being back) with the cold numbing my toes and that thin rain worming its way through the stitching of my frayed old jacket. The club have worked hard to put all of the measures needed to keep the match experience as safe as it could be and all in all have done a w...

Re: 57 years ago today!

I hadn't yet reached the milestone of my first birthday, so cannot claim to have been there. Family inform that they did take me to Old Trafford as a baby (explanation has never been forthcoming apart from the sad fact they were all Mancs). My Grandad brought me to my first Southport match aged thre...

Bit over dramatic chaps?
Or is this really the monthly sales team review at Hartley's Jams?

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: Gateshead V Southport - Match Thread

Got to go out to work. Funny enough, I am not completely gutted as I usually am when we are getting battered (excuse the pun). Good quality stream, commentary has been fair and enjoyable to listen to (despite scoreline). No reason to get all "season over" - though no doubt, some will have ...

Re: Gateshead V Southport - Match Thread

Good goal from former Port loanee Ged Garner. We named him on the team sheet 4 times in August 2017, but he never featured for us. Excellent strike to be fair. Notice the Goats are pressing fairly high up the pitch. Not caused too many problems (apart from the goal which had its origins in a miss p...

Re: Gateshead V Southport - Match Thread

Fairly even half, Gateshead scorer on loan from The Cod :-( Ged Garner. Good strike from left side of 18 yard box. Can see us getting back into this, final ball needs a little work and we need to get more Yellow shirts forward when the ball crosses in. Stream surprisingly good. Enjoying the commenta...

Re: THE TWELFTH MAN

Main Stand moaners are not unique to our club. I can remember watching Everton (which I used to do a fair old bit back in the late 1970's through to the mid 80's). Moaning and general cries of discontent aimed at the players were common - even as Howard's team of young players began to show real pro...

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

Season over. It's time for Watson to say it was what it was. Goals are just predictable. Anyone expecting Mr Watson to take responsibility for anything are sadly deluded,this shambles will continue indefinitely. This indicates we are mid table mediocrity once again. Some things need changing asap. ...
