  1. VIDEO - Extended Highlights

    That was my first viewing - other than last night's ch5 goals clip Didn't see much wrong until their first goal tbh Both full backs always seem out of position whenever we concede - Liam Palmer usually seen jogging back Marking was horrible for their second And did Baz actually commit a foul for the pen? Hugely disappointing all the same Kind of hope Hunt & Pudil come back for the next one

  3. SWFC Loan Watch Returns! (part one)

    Barnsley 0-3 Derby (att: 13,973) This looks like a routine away win for a team establishing themselves as play-off contenders vs a side struggling to steer clear of the drop zone However reports suggest it was another example of Richard 'Wee Pipe' Turpin at his best, and the stats would back up those opinions Of course, there are those who'd argue any team who scores with their first shot on target, adds a second on the stroke of half time and a third on the break and totally against the run of play deserve the points - and that's what happened I do think it was good of Rowett to give Sam Winnall the last 10mins to soak up all that love and appreciation Dingle fans vent whenever one of their favourite sons returns 'home' To think, with a bit more composure he might have added a fourth Plymouth 2-1 Gillingham (att: 11,155) Another example of match stats being at odds with the final score Plymouth started this one bottom of League1, whereas Gillingham have one of the best recent away records in the division So naturally, Plymouth score first and despite all their pressure Gillingham have to wait until the 84th minute for a 'well-deserved' equalizer ... only to lose the game in the last minute Sean Clare played the whole match from either CM or wide right, he almost grabbed a second equalizer in injury time too Chesterfield 2-1 Barnet (att: 5,272) Great that Cam Dawson should start his emergency loan spell with a victory, although Chezzy were first to concede This time the stats suggest the best team won, although the equalizer was an OG and the winner didn't arrive until the 93rd minute It was Rock Bottom vs 2nd Bottom at the start but the result moves the home side up to 4th Bottom and leaves the visitors Rock Bottom Accrington's match was called off due to the weather, so Jordan Thorniley was probably out spending again

  7. The Boy Wonder - 50 today !

    A personal preference maybe - but that 2nd goal at Southampton does it every time
  8. On This Day 1974 - Battle of the Kop

    I wasn't at this game (not sorry either) but I do remember watching the highlights on telly I was working on the M55 at the time and there was this one ManU fan on there, a real nutter (actually, there were a bunch of them, all nutters, but this one REALLY stood out from the rest) After they got relegated he spent the entire summer telling everyone bored enough to listen that their fans were going to DECLARE WAR on the 2nd division That they'd smash up every town centre they visited, smack up every rival fan they encountered and invade the pitch whenever cameras were there to record it Most of us thought it best to just humour him, but as the season progressed it seemed like he was ITK ps ... he also got his head stoved in - at Sunderland, unless I'm mistaken Couldn't have happened to a better pillock

    ooh, more material for Loan Watch Returns! (Part One)
  10. SWFC Loan Watch Returns! (part one)

    With most of those pesky U23 sides eliminated at the group stages, the 2nd round of the Checkatrade Trophy looked more like a bunch of regular league fixtures Except crowd figures were relatively poor, so it's fair to say cup fever is still some way off, but the prospect of a day out at Wembley meant some coaches were less inclined to rotate their squads Anyhoo ... Gillingham 1-2 Oxford Utd (att; 1,224) Sean Clare was playing right wing-back again for this one, and despite his side taking an early lead from the spot they were being held 1-1 at half time They were edging a tight encounter when he was subbed off on 77mins, but rather than grab a late winner they conceded in the 2nd minute of injury time Heigh-ho They were probably saving themselves for that trip to Carlisle Lincoln 3-2 Accrington (att: 3,026) A return to action for Jordan Thorniley was perhaps marred when he picked up his 5th booking of the season midway through the first half His side led twice but were trailing 3-2 when he was replaced on 65mins - probably another tactical move, but he continued to give free kicks away so maybe there were concerns he was close to being shown a red Either way, the stats suggest Lincoln were good value for their win and that's how it finished Port Vale were also in action, home to Shrewsbury, but we aren't bothered about them anymore are we? Nah ... They got beat anyway 2-1
