Re: Update from Ian Kyle

I hope these expensive match balls are going to be transported onto the pitch by remote control car this season. If we can get the car sponsored we may recover the cost of the balls. Do you want to destroy the enviroment ?. It was a VW, for gods sake, think of the emissions, :mrgreen: Mind you, hav...

Re: Morecambe

For gods sake we can all go on about what happened in the past, the if only's and what if's. What if Derby had missed the 94th min pen, a full house home replay and tv revenue. If only we had taken our chances against Tranmere a game against Spurs, yet again a full house and tv revenue. What if we h...

Re: Update from Ian Kyle

That's some real hate right there. Though my Auntie once got so fed up of the kids in her Bootle street kicking a ball in her garden, that she stabbed it with a bread knife and chucked it back. YellowTaxi will know who I'm talking about here, haha. Oh yeah. And the thing is, the balls we have to us...

Re: Squad 21/22

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9se6Z4-nfU Ian Kyle interview, steady as ever. I think Ian is very open and the interview is very informative. I think we are lucky that we have a chairman who will do a regular interview in the manner that this is done. It looks like Liam has a couple of new signin...

Re: Captain 21/22

Too damn long probably.
Some may find it hard to believe but Bath C probably have less chance of promotion next season than us.
A team we were able to beat with only 9 men a few years ago.

Re: Captain 21/22

Wouldn't we all welcome promotion !. I would, living in Bath and supporting a team in the national league north is darn expensive and the thought of watching a game without at least 3 train changes each way is a dream come true. Good to hear some positive thoughts. You could perhaps try Twerton Par...

Re: Captain 21/22

35 year old Steve McNulty played in most games for League Two Tranmere before dropping down to the Conference North, so it isn't that ridiculous a suggestion. I'd love to be proven wrong and we sign Clarke, but it won't happen, unless we pay well...which is what York did with McNulty. I think Clark...

Re: Captain 21/22

39 years old, as I am sure you are aware. Huge differences in the physical demands on a goalkeeper.

Re: Captain 21/22

Even allowing we could sign him, Would taking a 39 year old be a wise choice, from a forward looking perspective ?. In the unlikely scenario of swathes of Port fans feasting on humble pie at the end of the season what then, a new captain for next year ?.

Re: Morecambe

The difference between the likes of Morecambe and other clubs that have flown past us is that they had the drive and motivation to improve and succeed and had a laid down vision. Southport just have the drive and ambition to survive!! It's only taken them an additional 100 years to achieve the same...

No offence to Newport but is a ploughed field a suitable surface for football in Div 1 ?.

Why are we keeping so many of last seasons squad,when they were shown to be inadequate? The inadequate to sign more inadequates to replace the inadequates Can't believe we let Aguero slip past us to Barca On a free, for goodness sake. We could have afforded the free bit and has Barcalona got a mari...

Re: Brentford promoted

Our second former player (including loanees ) to play in the Premier League if he makes an appearance? After Craig Noone. Mark Duffy was promoted with Sheff Utd but didn’t play for them in the PL. Ben Davies is at Liverpool but hasn’t played in the first team. Did Trundle play for Swansea in the PL...

Re: Brentford promoted

His performance against Derby was without doubt the best I have seen from any keeper, at any level, in any game and his sincere thanks to the club on his departure were heart warming to hear. A gentleman and a supurb keeper.
Happy hangover David and good luck for next season, oh and thanks.
