  1. Don't worry Normal services will be resumed Sat'dy ... Livingston v Aberdeen Grimsby v Macclesfield (yet again!) And Sunday (the big one!) ... Osnabruck v St Pauli
  2. I remember Gary Megson's postmatch interview - saying Liam needed to work on his goal celebration Which, with hindsight, would've been a total waste of time. Since he'd never had cause to use it ... yet
  3. 10th Sept 2011 v MK (h) 3-1 Megson played him in midfield in those days He came off the bench for JJ at half time and scored our 3rd goal in the last minute Can't find a clip unfortunately
  4. It's coming though, isn't it? He nearly scores three or four every season I thought the dam would burst after his goal v Villarreal But the wait continues .... By the way, many happy returns Liam
  5. 28yr old? Blimey, time flies By my reckoning he'll also make his 200th league appearance for us this weekend (if selected) Big week How about marking the occasion with his second goal?
  6. ... or Dutch You reckon that's why he brought Joey in, as a translator?
  7. Yes, I know. It's only a pet theory of mine There was a photo published during his second season - I'm sure it was at Hillsborough Jos was on the touchline passing instructions on to Adam Reach Reach's expression was priceless, kind of: "WTF you on about." I took one look at that and thought 'that's the problem we're having, right there!'
  8. Of course, but we're talking about his managerial success in Germany
  9. Must admit, I was dazzled by the way we finished Jos' first season Six wins in his last nine games (compared to three wins in Bruce's last nine) I gave Jos most of the credit but that run also coincided with Bannan & Forestieri returning from injury and Nuhiu scoring goals like there was no tomorrow So what went wrong? Lots, probably. But I'll always be convinced communication (or lack of) was part of the problem His English was atrocious whereas his German is no doubt spot on He maybe should've taken some classes during that first summer
  10. Connor (no.14) features in most of the clips - he had a good game and Macc were probably unlucky https://www.skysports.com/football/maccfield-vs-newport/410553
  11. 17th September Macclesfield 1-1 Newport Co (att: 1,435) Newport went ahead in the 1st minute, but despite drawing level and having the better of things throughout most the game The point leaves Macc pretty much rooted in mid-table For Connor Kirby. this was his 6th start in eleven appearances in all competitions And if the BBC live texts are anything to go by, his most influential game for them so far ... 3' Attempt saved. Connor Kirby (Macclesfield Town) right footed shot from outside the box is saved in the centre of the goal. Assisted by Emmanuel Osadebe. 17' Attempt saved. Connor Kirby (Macclesfield Town) right footed shot from outside the box is saved in the bottom right corner. Assisted by Arthur Gnahoua. 18' Attempt blocked. Virgil Gomis (Macclesfield Town) left footed shot from outside the box is blocked. Assisted by Connor Kirby. 28' Attempt missed. Fiacre Kelleher (Macclesfield Town) right footed shot from the centre of the box is too high. Assisted by Connor Kirby following a set piece situation. 31' Attempt saved. Connor Kirby (Macclesfield Town) right footed shot from the left side of the box is saved in the top left corner. Assisted by Corey O'Keeffe. 53' Attempt missed. Fiacre Kelleher (Macclesfield Town) header from the centre of the box misses to the right. Assisted by Connor Kirby with a cross following a corner. 54' Attempt missed. Connor Kirby (Macclesfield Town) right footed shot from the centre of the box is too high. 62' Attempt blocked. Emmanuel Osadebe (Macclesfield Town) right footed shot from outside the box is blocked. Assisted by Connor Kirby. 66' Attempt saved. Emmanuel Osadebe (Macclesfield Town) right footed shot from the centre of the box is saved in the centre of the goal. Assisted by Connor Kirby. 81' Attempt missed. Connor Kirby (Macclesfield Town) right footed shot from more than 35 yards.
  12. I'm sure Lee Bullen said in interview that although the loan was for the whole season it would be reviewed around Christmas time As for him being lured abroad for peanuts? I can't imagine the club would walk into such an obvious trap I'm guessing we have an option to renew, similar to Keiren Westwood over the summer We thought we might lose him but were in the driving seat all along He's hardly likely to say: "Can't stand the bloke. He gives me the creeps!"
