15 months in the making, a game changer and the loss of silverware ?

Maghull 0-1 South Liverpool

Saturday 13th December 2014 kick off 2pm

It looks like another weeks wait for that change of luck.

The league leaders came to Old Hall Field looking to take a ten point lead at the top of the table, albeit over nearest challengers who have three games in hand. But this one was a real must win for Maghull, to keep them in the title race. After suffering an abrupt about turn in the reverse fixture earlier in the season (leading…

Jeckyll and Hyde, a different view of things and officials revisited.

Newton 2-1 Maghull

Saturday 6th December 2014 kick off 2pm

I am beginning to think I sound like a broken record. That was something we had before cd's youngsters.

We shall start with the first half.

It was quite a decent half of football. Newton, who showed at Old Hall Field that they are a much improved side from last season, kept themselves in a game that Maghull really should have taken by the scruff of the neck.

Some very good play and a…

A crazy start (so I believe) a comeback and Kenny Rogers shows up at last

Maghull 4-2 Newton

Saturday 22nd November 2014 kick off 2pm

No matter what I do, these officilas just have a bad tendency to have games kick off on time. So the afternoons main talking point seemed to revolve around a matter while I was being held up by a Crocodile on the loose, on the A49 . Why don't these officials hold up the kick off times to allow all people to gain access to the ground !!

So rumour has it, that Lee Carrol was quite lucky to stay on…

Making history, misleading and we need a Kenny Rogers

Capenhurst Villa 1 - 1 Maghull  aet   penalties... apparently 4-2 !!!  Pyke Cup

Saturday November 8th 2014 kick off 1.30pm  

I may find it difficult to put the events of Saturday into words, but bear with me, I could find a way.

A decent first half of football produced a goal a piece. From an attacking point, fine efforts, but from a defensive side, you must say there were questions marks on both occasions.

After a cagey start from both sides,…

Possession, possession and relief

Ashville 0 - 1 Maghull

Saturday November 1st 2014  kick off 3pm

This game a had a similar feel to the one seven days previous.

More possession than the law allows, some great moves and some very good performances. But deary me, the finishing !!

A first half of more or less attack against defence, gave us the jitters as no matter what Maghull did, the ball was not going in the net. That Rooney bloke could have been watching as his alleged bit of…

Ten men, AGAIN, lots of possession and not taking chances.

Mallaby 2-0 Maghull

Saturday 25th October 2014  kick off 3pm



If this scoreline had read Mallaby 2 Maghull 6 it would not have been a misleading tale.

But for that to have happened, you have to at least test the keeper.. On this occasion it didn't happen.

For the first half hour, Mallaby barely got out of their own half. But with poor finishing and sloppy play, Maghull managed to conjure up a half time deficit, after being in total control of…

Smart choices, a blow to the chops and our own Chernobyl

Maghull 1-2 East Villa 

Saturday 11th October 2014  kick off 2pm  LCFA Challenge Cup

You could call it a week to forget, or was it just deja vu !!

To think the club could be revisiting the same scenario of a couple of years ago, only this time during a season, beggars belief. But more of that later.

John McInnes stepped into the vipers nest called the managers seat, for the unforeseen future, to take over the side for the visit of the unbeaten East…

A slow start, red again, then total domination

Maghull 3-0 Helsby

Saturday 4th October 2014 kick off 3pm  league

What happened on Saturday, cannot happen very often, can it ?

Maghull, in the words of John Hastings, had to wake up and get out of bed. The visitors had made many dangerous moves into the home sides back four, getting through on a few occasions. But Lee Carrol and some shocking…

Three strikes and out, the calm in the storm and the Stamper of disapproval

Rainhill Town 0 - 3 Maghull

Tuesday 16th September 2014 kick off 7pm at Bootle FC

Thanks to the M62 and Liverpool stupidly deciding to play a home game while a final is on, caused my arrival was somewhat late. Thus missing the electric start of proceedings. So the ghost has snook in for the first 15 minutes.

A new centre back pairing, due to injury and suspension came forth, bringing with it a return of the old man …

A game of one half, a big phantom and silence is golden

Vauxhall Motors 3 - 1 Maghull

Saturday 27th September 2014  kick off 3pm

A lovely sunny day, a minutes silence for the passing of the wife of Vauxhall Motors FC chairman and a Liverpool County FA official during the week and the day was set for a fine game of football, on a great surface and fine surroundings.

Then the clouds appeared !!

A game of football took place, if you can call it that, and I am sure Vauxhall Motors will say they deserved the…

Firing on a lack of cylinders, a nightmare between the sticks and was it offside

Old Xavarians 1 - 3 Maghull

Saturday 20th September 2014  kick off 2pm

I would like to comment on the first half, but work duties and misinformation deigned my appearance to be at the half time whistle. When I thought I was early. Believe me, Natalie (a customer at work) was partly to blame and seems I am to know if it is a cup game, it will kick off at 2pm. Lesson learned

So, I have been told that Maghull should have been 3-0 up at the break, others…

When is a pen a pen, a keepers master class and Mike Cummins inspiration

West Kirby 1 - 2 Maghull

Saturday 13th September 2014  kick off 3pm

This game was a travesty of justice.

A stonewall penalty not given, a crazy one given and West Kirby decided to throw Davy Crockett, Bill Travis and Jim Bowie in goal.

What the West Kirby keeper didn't stop, either went wide or over the top.…

What the West Kirby keeper didn't stop, either went wide or over the top. Other than the two efforts that got past him, that he had no chance with whatsoever.

It really was, one of the most one sided 2-1 wins…

A big non league day, a couple of follow ups and going through the gears

Maghull 5 - 1 Capenhurst Villa

Saturday 6th September 2014 kick off 3pm



Another home win, another bag full of goals. The only disappointment was the final tally !

This really should have been, many, many more. And from a side with seven enforced changes from last weeks outing and more on the bench. Against a side who played good football, not a percentage game.

There was a touch of deja vu about this match, casting minds back seven days. A…

An opening pair, a set of three and four of a kind.

Maghull 7 -0 Blacon YC

Saturday 30th August 2014 kick off 3pm

Some new signings for today, may have sparked some new inspiration into the side. And competition for places is always a good thing. Keeps players on their toes. No doubt some words in the dressing came about after the midweek fiasco, but the much needed response did come.

The pattern was set very early, with that much needed pace, causing a multitude of issues for the Blacon back four. For a…
