I've just read this article and thought it was very insightful. Worth a read for any non league football lover

very interesting - not many who've played at his level would be prepared to muck in like that. Also interested in his reluctance to sign players who have particularly physical jobs?

However professional Davies' approach is, Southport's upturn came after they splashed out a load of dosh on much better players, including some from the Football League.

Shocking behaviour. Imagine splashing out a lot of money on say, one of the best strikers in the division. Glad we would never do that.....

One of the best strikers in the league you say. Changed your tune from when he was first linked with a move to the club.

Have I? Interested to see where I said he was a bad striker.

I doubted his consistency (valid given he'd had 7 clubs in 3 years). And I questioned whether investing a significant amount was worth the risk, given our permanently fragile finances.

But I don't think you'll find anywhere that I said he was a bad striker.

Interesting article & he seems to have turned around their season. Really hope Southport are not up for the game with us and this striker does not show his class by knocking in some goals. Would be happy if Darlo take 3 points and another clean sheet.
