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 &...

Re: Match Thread - Southport V Curzon Ashton

Perhaps it’s been missed in the substantial communication from the club but what exactly is the aspiration for this season? Has it ever been communicated? Is lower mid-table the target? Should IK be stating his ambitions for the club? There have been “five year plans” and “definitely going to win th...

Dealing with a mess he helped create! He’s had to bring the wage budget down, he shouldn’t be applauded for doing so.

Re: FT: Guiseley 4 - 2 Southport

We're in a poor run of form but let's give the manager the chance to sort it out. In this weird season, and all the uncertainly, I think there's a lot to be said for stability and togetherness. They are two things we have not had in any capacity when Liam Watson has not been in charge. Alan Wright?...

Is Ian Kyle strong enough to make a decision like that??
Depends on what the main sponsor wants to do.

Well done Chorley although something isn’t right about Andy Preece dancing round a dressing room. Fingers crossed for Marine tomorrow.

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

I think the point has been done to death, Watson/McCarthy football is tough on the eye when it doesn't work, long meaningless balls from the Keeper, Long Throws, Corners launched into the 6yd box etc., we older souls like to see more than 2 passes, crosses to the far post, no endless time wasting e...

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

Break away goal - no one near him. We defended well and looked dangerous on the break. Challinor is getting a reputation as being a bit hot headed and I assume Charlie Oliver will play wing back on Saturday. Mo Ali looked off the pace, a few mistimed challenges. He will be available on Saturday, su...

You're well aware Bobby that in your original comment regarding used players that you were referring to the 2016/17 season...I have never suggested fake news from our current owners-and you know that...I rest my case..

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

if you keep putting the same production on year in year out without investment to improve it, eventually it will fail-no matter. You do wonder at what point does a mantra of “living within our means” get translated by a fan base into a lack of investment or ambition? Old ground Bobby boy and as in ...

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

The pantomime production manager always carries the can for poor performances, and presided over years of mediocrity due to a lack of ambition and investment. There are a lot of questions regarding the involvement of the junior production managers in that debacle of a season. if you keep putting th...

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

Ken McBenna was one of the least bad of the 274 players we used during that shambolic, disgraceful mess of a relegation season. You are wrong, it was 275. However, to call some of them players is a very loose interpretation of the word. They were all players in a big pantomime though. The pantomime...

Re: Southport 2-3 York City - Match Thread

Soft decisions for the free kicks that led to all three York goals. Switched off for the winner. Newell situation doesn’t make sense, if he’s not fit then why is he even at the ground in the current circumstances?

Pitch seems to be holding up well. The playing area looked narrower than ever tonight!
