Re: New Book Coming Soon: The Town's Game

Thought this deserved to be moved to the main forum. Dan very kindly shared an early draft of this with me, it’s a fantastic book and a significant telling of the club’s early history, along with that of the Rugby Club and other sporting organisations in the town. ‘The Book’ by Michael and Geoff wil...

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

would have Poku back in a heartbeat No, no, no. Liam is building a team for the future, and bringing back old “has been’s” is not the answer. I think this is a bit unfair. We've got a young and developing squad. A player of two with experience will be no bad thing. Unlikely to return anyway mind, h...

Re: Changes to football rules?

I would do away with playoffs and have promotion solely dependent on league position. Nope I would revert to 2 points for a win and 1 for a draw. The current points allocation is illogical. Nope I think that the penalty spot should be moved back. Its too easy to score a penalty, and that encourages...

Fc Isle of Man average attendance 1763 and highest 3230 in NWCL division 1 south - first season for the club Promotion to premier league and in Division 1 cup final Population 84k compared with 90k in Southport Maybe worth looking at what they are doing right It’s not really a fair comparison when ...

Re: SFC Team for Sir Michael Mouse Cup Final

Winning is an excellent habit, no matter the competition. Any and all silverware should be thoroughly welcomed. Well done to the lads. Hopefully we can use it as a bit of a platform for a final push before the season ends. I think the thread title is in poor taste but won’t be changed by mods as no ...

Big car park next to the ground and they weren't asking for payment at the semi.

Re: Everton relegation

If they do leave then we should petition Sefton Council to pay for a 4g Pitch to be installed. It's the one thing that would immediately raise the consciousness of the Club in the Community and makes sense with having an Academy set-up. As a fully paid up member of the "football is played on g...

Re: Southport 0-0 AFC Fyld€ - Match Thr€ad

Quite an entertaining game to be fair, but yet again we showed that we have difficulty overcoming 10 men. Once more, a poor referee, who it appears doesn’t even know the basic rules and laws of the game. Having sent off their Manager for kicking the ball away, he allowed him to sit on the front row...

Re: Southport 0-0 AFC Fyld€ - Match Thr€ad

One of those "I'd have taken a point, but after 90 minutes we should have had three". As someone who's not been able to get to many this season, it's actually the best I've personally seen the team in a while. Could and should have won, but happy enough with the point given the last game. ...
