Re: Southport Highlights

Some refs give fouls for some pushing and nudging in the back and some don't. But to me if you're a ref that does give it, then you have to give it all game and for both teams [/quote] Have to agree it is the bloody inconsistency by referees at Curzon it was free kick after free kick "if you shouted...

Re: Gateshead game...

Before the game I was happy with a draw and at the end thankful. Their centre forward caused all sorts of problems, Trotman had his worst game(hope the injury is not serious) and only Liddle shone at the back . Hatfield is still having to help in defence and has little opportunity to get forward. Ho...

Caton had some ability but I wasn't a fan of his commitment and determination. Don't really think there's any need to mock him though

In our last away game at Guisely, Ainge looked bored and out of sorts - he was just going through the motions, but not very well. In fact the situation that day reminded me of the final games of Andy Crosby back in 98, a good player who wanted away and quite simply couldn’t be arsed. The game that ...
