  1. FC Erzgebirge Aue? No, me neither Apparently Aue is a small town/city situated in what was formerly East Germany - near the Ore Mountains, close to the Czech border Also (apparently) the smallest town/city to ever boast a club in the 2.Bundesliga Total population varies between 16-20,000 depending on sources and the stadium can more or less accomodate all of them It's me - I don't get out much Anyhow ... 15 September FC Erzgebirge Aue 1-0 Vfl Osnabruck (att: 9,750) Minnows or not, half the town/city turned out to watch 'em beat JvA's side Joost played the whole game - seems to be a fixture in their team now - and picked up an early booking But a lack of consistency probably means they're mid-table at best
  2. 14th September Rangers 3-1 Livingston (att: 48,793) Just when you might think Livingston could use someone to come on and deliver a thunderwhatsit into the top pokie ... Their manager decided to keep Jack Stobbs on the bench His side actually took the lead with a 2nd half penalty, then trailed 2-1 before going down to 10 men and conceding a third later on - ah well Swindon 3-0 Macclesfield (att: 7,055) Connor Kirby on the other hand kept his starting place but was one of a double substitution at half time with his side trailing 2-0 Swindon added a third goal to secure a win that sees them move up to second in League 2
  3. Many thanks and keep up the good work @Youth Hawker You do us proud 4-0 win away from home ain't too shabby either
  4. Seems only fair that I should share some of the blame here My first Wednesday match in December '67 - that glorious 4-1 home win v West Ham, World Cup heroes an' all - left us 5th in Div.1 and looking good However, we'd only pick up 10pts from the remaining 22 games (W2 D6 L14) and finish 19th - 2pts above the drop - which just so happened to be the pigs, so that's okay Fared a little better the following season, finished 15th but famously beat ManU 5-4 early on and later beat L**ds away in the cup After that, Danny Williams rolled up and the rest as they say is history Perhaps explains why I hold Big Jack and Sgt Wilko is such high esteem - between 'em, they got me off the hook!
  5. Penalty saved! Connor Kirby (Macclesfield Town) fails to capitalise on this great opportunity, right footed shot saved in the bottom right corner. ... ah well, look on the bright side He got another ninety minutes under his belt Happy Birthday, Connor
  6. 10 September Grimsby 0-0 Macclesfield (att: 3,011) So it wasn't to be a happy 21st birthday for Connor Kirby after all In the end, a visit to Chelsea in the next round hinged on a penalty shoot-out Both sides missed one so it went to sudden death Grimsby scored theirs and ... wouldn't you know it ....
  7. 7th September Macclesfield 1-1 Crawley (att: 1,788) Connor Kirby kept his place from midweek to make his first league start for Macc They took the lead midway through the 1st half but couldn't hold on as Crawley came at them after the break Lots of free kicks and bookings but the draw was probably a fair result
  8. Hey Hey We're the Monk-ers People say we're Monk-in' about But we're too busy winning To really give a shee---out
  9. Thanks again, John. And @Quist for the viewing tip Looked like a game we should've won - Josh Render will be disappointed with their second So .... May as well brace myself for this 4 o'clock announcement
  10. So is Hunt the missing 11th name on the teamsheet then, John? Rather than West?
  11. I see the kick-off was delayed about four minutes Must've been the ref arguing with the car park attendant (he won't know how much the pies and Bovril cost until half time)
  12. Nope, can't find anyone updating from their end There's a match preview on their OS Says attendance is free - doesn't mention owt about supporters being fleeced rotten at the car park
  13. Glad you're there, John Haven't managed to find any 'home' coverage of this game ... yet
  14. ... NEXT I know, how about bringing Holloway in, short term, to work alongside Bullen in a consultant/advisory capacity?
  15. A bit of good news to light up an otherwise gloomy ol' week ... My hero Don't know if our mystery correspondent will make it down to Shepherds Bush for this one - 1pm ko But I'm hopeful he'll be at Middlewood Rd tomorrow to provide updates on our U18 game v Charlton (also 1pm ko)

  19. I always have grim recollections of that side West, Larry May, Gary Owen, Proctor, Galvin and that 'all white' pin-stripe kit And yet we finished 11th in the top flight Heady times indeed
