Re: The state of play.

Most successful seasons we have had a talisman striker. Spence, Haw, Ferns, Carver to name a few. At present whilst Chester sign Willoughby (proven) we go down the economy line of Bell with the ambition of resurrecting the career of a player who has lost his way..This is commendable until it fails t...

Re: RIP Alex Russell

Can’t help but feel that Alex was Billy Bingham’s first signing for the team in the heavenly places. Those of us who engaged with Alex will testify that he was a man who delighted to talk of those great Bingham days. He and Ron Smith put them down to fitness. Billy would go to Birkdale beach and blo...

Re: Marcus Carver

Wonder if Marcus came to the attention of Hartlepool because of the North East link. We played a fair few games against Spenymoor, Darlington and Blyth. Managers speak on the phone don’t they? Oh yes I almost forgot he also is near the top of the goalscorers league. He also loves a high press and pu...

Re: Southport 3-2 Spennymoor - Match Thread

The pen actually hits the post and then bounces off the keeper’s chest. It was not a great save by Dale Eves but a lucky ricochet. Unlucky Marcus, good pen but too accurate.

Re: Southport 3 - 3 Gateshead - Match Thread

As far as I understand it Liam Watson has decided to go with Youth yet again. This has advantages: cheap, future sales, legs, enthusiasm and if we develop, a side that will grow and equip us if we are promoted. That’s fine but if you are going to do that you need need mentors and dogs of war in that...

Re: Spennymoor 3- 2 Southport - Match Thread

Two mistakes by the ref. One - it was never a foul, small lad bounces off a big lad in an arial challenge. Two - the ball has rolled 10yard up the pitch from where he allows the free kick which he wasn't aware had been taken. Should have stopped play. On another matter Liam suggests Russ may be out ...

Re: FT: Southport 9 - 2 Longridge Town

My guess on this is Mo Ali. Spreads outrageous passes from the back for this level of football. Think we’ve got a star there.
