Re: Brackley Town 1-0 Southport - Match Thread

Yes, Ste_B, agree that if we get players in they will be youngsters on the fringes of first teams in Leagues 1,2 or the National League. Very unlikely to get experienced players coming to us on loan. There’s some advantages to a smaller squad (players don’t feel left out, better camaraderie & no...

Re: Brackley Town 1-0 Southport - Match Thread

We must bring in a couple of experienced loan players immediately if we have no cash to bring in permanent signings. Liam is supposed to know the local non-League like the back of his hand, so bring a couple of players in. Where are our supposed friends, Liam, John Cole and the like? If any clubs a...

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

Saw both Steven Tames (4 goals in 40 Port appearances) & Josh Dobie (45 minutes of a Port appearance) contribute to the winning side in Prescot Cables 2 Ramsbottom United 1 this afternoon. Ramsbottom were better on the ball & had a lot of possession but Cables stood firm and got two very dif...

Re: Southport 3 - 3 Gateshead - Match Thread

Is the reason why we rarely appear to have a decent midfield due to the policy of bypassing midfield (aka. Hoofball)? Think the idea at the moment is to shield the back four with two holding midfielders (usually Benjamin & one of Bainbridge and Munro) and have three skilful, forward looking pla...

Re: Southport 3 - 3 Gateshead - Match Thread

Lucky to get a point - totally outplayed Not having attended the game I'm intrigued as how we came to be in the lead from the 4th minute to the 94th whilst being totally outplayed. Looking forward to the analysis . There’s a few reasons but the main one is sitting in a low block with Carver 50 yard...

Re: AFC Fylde 2-1 Southport Match Thread

I can't say I've seen a lot of personal insults being chucked about though? Considering for as long as I can remember all our fans have hated each other for some reason I think it's all been quite jolly. I think it’s important to say, Ronnie, that no Port fan actually says they hate all other Port ...

Re: AFC Fylde 2-1 Southport Match Thread

I didn't post on the Bad Old Portchat because reading it was depressing enough, but I've quite enjoyed the new one - the foul language has been a huge part of that (I don't think "huge part" counts but happy to be corrected). I can't say I've seen a lot of personal insults being chucked a...

Re: AFC Fylde 2-1 Southport Match Thread

Hate to be repetitive but as everyone else has said minutes 45 to 60 decided the match. The thing is the timeworn way to play against 10 men is something we don’t do, namely, keep the ball, pass it around the 10 men and wear them out. We don’t do it and particularly not in away matches. They were en...

Very occasional ex-Port scorer Raul Correia stays in the Welsh League by moving from Bala Town to Aberystwyth Town.

Re: Southport 2 - 2 Gloucester - Match Thread

Agree with what everyone’s already said and the crowd will increase if we put as much effort in as yesterday. All we ask for as fans is that the players give 100% and that’s what the 13 involved yesterday did. It was an excellent second half performance, taking the game to Gloucester, on the front f...

Re: Southport v Gloucester predictions

I’m just thinking that if Archer was fit he’d have played some pre-season. Will probably have to count him out for a while yet. As others say it’s so difficult to predict an opening day fixture with no form to go off but there’s an opportunity for upsets and getting to start at home can only be a go...

Re: Southport 2-1 Barrow - Match Thread

"No more signings" but we fielded another triallist last night who hadn't played in any of the previous matches. What position was the trialist? As if he was a centre forward it could be something to do George's injury perhaps being even longer than imagined, and Watson's realised we need...

Only on for maybe 15 minutes today, too little to make a judgment. I like him from what I’ve seen in previous friendlies, keeps things ticking over and protects the defence with neat passing & timely tackling

Re: Southport 2-1 Barrow - Match Thread

Agree with George, a good display and it seems we’re building gradually as each performance looks better then the last. Largely a 5-3-2 with Anson, C.Doyle & Tharme centre halves, Oliver & J.Doyle wing backs, Bainbridge, Benjamin & Hmami in midfield and Woods/Archer up front. Just the fa...

Re: Southport 2-0 Marine - Match Thread

Much better second half as we had the ball in Marines half much more. The 4-2-3-1 in the first half looked adventurous but when the three (Woods, Hmami & Vassalo) are looking for scarce knockdowns it doesn’t work (shout out to Carver for pouncing on the mistake for the first & setting up the...
