  1. Barry Gallagher......he thought he was much better than he actually was.
  2. Damn Covid holding us back, otherwise reckon we might have been on for record season ticket sales after that open inspirational interview
  3. Indiscipline aside, I like King, he’s blessed with a footballing brain. I’m sure he and us would benefit from a decent run in the side. On top of that he’s versatile and can fill in a few roles.
  4. Had to offload either Maher or Staunton IMO. They were too similar. Hope Maher accepts a deal. Staunton decent, but poor heading ability, not so much in defence, but he missed some heading opportunities in the oppositions box. Good luck Josh, probably head back down south
  5. Jeff Lee, Mark Bradshaw and the rest, we’ve had some good left backs over the years but it has to be First choice Macca. Ultimate Club man, great career.
  6. Pink......Thought Pete Wild want us to toughen up this season......Expect a midfield Three of Julian Clary, Alan Carr, And the experienced Elton John
  7. Staunton a decent player but agree his heading needs improvement, not only whilst defending but his heading in the oppositions box has been woeful. (Eg missed chances)
  8. Head scratching retained list. Maher and Staunton are too much alike I’d have released one of them. Cooper, Williams, and Tobi would have been released too IMO. Watch Redshaw move on and get a boat load of goals albeit probably in a lower division.
  9. Brill first half, abysmal 2nd = inconsistency. That’s what’s it’s been On a few occasions this season, but hats off to Pete he’s done a cracking job in hid first season. Time now for some investment and some Peter Wild signings, not some other blokes hand me downs.
  10. Troubled Lad off the field, but he knew where the net was. Even Kossy was singing his praises in a recent podcast, naming him in his best 11. . Sadly I think Morgy has blown his chance.
  11. Wasn’t the Southport Sunday game a nil- nil drab affair. Thought we played it on a Sunday with a 2pm KO cos of the Power cuts.
  12. Nice to hear HARRY HUBBICK manager Alan Balls old assistant get a mention on the great game film. Ball took Harry with him when he left us for PNE.
  13. Smith Brown Evans Stoneman Bradshaw Mc Hale Kennedy Patterson Atkins Horsefield Vardy Gennoe, Nichol, Alan Jones, Davison, Norris.
  14. RIP Ricky. Didn’t stay long, but remember him having a bit of flair about his game.
  15. Lethal finisher....top comedian
  16. F Downs was Steve Downs. Ray Mc Hale scored that night. I have to say he is one of my favourite Shay players ever. The owner of a hell of a shot, he’s a type of player I think the game lacks today. Gutted when we flogged him to Chesterfield. Dave Gwyther and Alan Jones two other favs from that era. Johnny Quinn a decent boss too
  17. Haven’t recovered from the Halesowen defeat. Woefully slow build ups and no urgency. The players were embarrassingly devoid of ideas.
  18. Only a Redshaw showing anything like. Nolan and Williams might as well be sat in the stands. They don’t seem to know what position they are playing. I like Josh, but his attacking headers in the opposition box are woeful. Time to stand up and be counted lads.......come on Europe is watching
  19. Boys against men today. They old manned us. We need some experience in the middle of the park. Brown Rusty, and his pal Redshaw is being played way too deep. The only way we’re gunna get any joy today was someone speedy out wide. Sadly it didn’t happen.
  20. Not sure if Harry Gregg was linked with the Town managers job back in 60s/70s. apologies if I’m way off the mark.
  21. Great find. My late dad (with a whole lot of others) helped clear the pitch to get the game on. Our finest run in the FA Cup on film...great stuff.
  22. The dire performance on Saturday has somewhat soured Pete’s CV when he points to his victory over Fulham in the FA Cup with Oldham.........”.Yes but you yourself were turned over by a team two leagues below”. Not Good. A combination of everyone having a collective piss poor day combined with over confidence. Time to move on, but for fans who have witnessed the same against the likes of Marine, Whitby, North Sheilds and the old Wigan....it takes some getting over.
  23. Far too many collectively had absolute shocking games. When Cam King don’t play well, we as a team don’t seem to play well. In any form of football if your playing a team 2 leagues below you, over confidence can get in you head. Take the rough with the smooth Town. You owe us one after that display. So move onto the league
  24. I suppose the drawback of winning and a great run at the moment, maybe the players win bonuses. Thus I would hope the crowd improves certainly beyond the break even figure. We might have to adopt a supporters crowd fund to keep the likes of Redshaw and Rodney. Oh dear the price of success !!
