Re: Halifax FA Trophy

I'm sure this game will be off. What a profoundly depressing interview with Liam. Just admits we haven't a hope of getting promoted, that the emphasis is simply on blooding young (actually not so young - 22 year olds are not young footballers) players and selling them on. This is apparently realism...

Re: Golden Days

Fantastic read and you just cannot put it down.

Just a shame where the club is now compared to the Bingham years- a manager who certainly knew what he was doing!

Re: Favourite kits

There was a photo in the newspaper in the sixties of 4 or 5 players wearing tights. They never played in them, just wore them in training to keep warm. Redrobe and Andrews were 2 of them but I don't remember who the others were. I'm sure someone will post the photo soon! Arthur Peat was one of them.

Re: Match Thread - Southport V Curzon Ashton

I am quite frankly amazed that people suggest Gary Brabin as a Southport manager in the final days of 2020. Not only has he been a coach and not a manager since 2016 (which shows Alan Lewer levels of managerial inactivity!) he left us in the lurch to go to Tranmere & has no recent knowledge of ...

Re: Match Thread - Southport V Curzon Ashton

Speculating as to what is happening at Haig Ave is always difficult, it sounds like Phil Hodgkinson has left a Legacy for the club till 2022 also for the 3 present Directors to hold the fort in the meantime, what do they bring in to the club? The strategy seems to be that we unearth a gem or 2 &...

Remember Eddie Moss and I think the other winger was Eric Jones and as you say all so long ago.

Re: A Little Post Christmas Trivia

Remember watching Grandstand that afternoon and David Coleman announcing a freak half time score for freak weather and I think we were 7-0 down then.

Not a great memory!!

Re: Match Thread - Southport V Curzon Ashton

Some ridiculous posts on here from the usual suspects (especially those who didn’t even watch the game :roll: ). I’m sure they were delighted when we conceded the late equaliser. The performance was a significant improvement on previous matches and we looked much more dangerous going forward, altho...

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 manag...

Re: Southport 1 - 1 Alfreton

Could the Mods tidy up this thread there's a lot of echoes... I agree the interview was depressing. I do not expext Liam to come out and batter the team in his interviews, it's a young side and that would do more harm than good, but I get no impression that he even recognises there's a problem. McC...

Stream works fine but I wish the commentators would cheer up. They've been good, as has the stream. Not much of a game so far but I think we've had the better of it. They have commentated quite well but I’m sure one of them is going to burst into tears at any point. I’m going to the carvery at the ...
