Maghull 4-0 South Liverpool
Saturday 30th November 2013 kick off 2pm
Was this really a title decider ! While we are still in November ?
After this performance, from back to front, I think it's time to smile like you mean it. Points on the board, is the main thing in football and Phil Staffords team have done just that. And done the double over their nearest challenger for good measure.
It was built up as a big game and didn't disappoint. And…Continue

Maghull 4-0 Vauxhall Motors Reserves
Saturday 23rd November 2013 kick off 2pm
A team in good form came to Old Hall Field on Saturday. And where quietly demolished.
Other than a strange moment with Lee Carrols footing, very early on, this was a performance that was one of the best of the season.
This Vauxhall side are no mugs, as last weeks result showed, but on Saturday it really was men against boys.In fact, after the torment given to the…Continue

Maghull 4-1 Christleton
Saturday 16th November 2013 kick off 2pm
Lets be honest, it wasn't good. But a 4-1 scoreline when it isn't good, is not too shabby.
We can try and gloss over things, like the poor finishing of the opposition, getting away with a few sloppy moments and a possible offside for our first goal. But maybe, just maybe, that female who goes by the name of luck, decided to be nice to us at last. Played way better and lost was the consensus…Continue

Ashville 2-1 Maghull
Saturday 9th November kick off 2.30pm Pyke Cup
I have no idea what Maghull have to do to win at Ashville, but playing well and dictating the play does not seem to be the answer.
For the second time this season, we have been the better side, played the better football, yet come away with nothing.
In fairness to the home side, they did play a part in the first half. But the way they took the lead, had us scratching our heads and will…Continue

Blacon YC 2-5 Maghull
Saturday 2nd November 2013 kick off 2pm
Revenge is not a dirty word (crevice is a dirty word) but we don't like to use it here.
This was all about, picking up another three points on our travels and putting some daylight between us and the chasing pack. And that is exactly what happened. With an added touch of glee, after the shambolic way we lost the home fixture earlier in the season.
Confidence was high and by the hour mark, so was…Continue

Mallaby 0-1 Maghull
Saturday 26th October 2013 kick off 3pm
The long trip to Mallaby promised many things, after last weeks annihilation of Chester Nomads. Not many were forthcoming,but the biggest promise was kept. Three valuable points.
Mallaby proved to be a very decent outfit and their league position seems to be a false one, on this showing.
If truth be told, they were the better side on the day. Plenty of possession, some decent play, but…Continue

Chester Nomads 0-7 Maghull
Saturday 19th October 2013
Was it written in the stars, or did the lads finally just click.
From the outset it looked promising, by half time it had eventually become a public slaughtering.
Tom Wharton started the humiliation, by missing a massive sitter inside the first five minutes. Heads were held in hands, as we could not see how Tom managed to put his effort over the bar, from so close in (don't worry, you are not alone…Continue

Maghull 0-0 South Sefton Borough aet South Sefton win 5-4 on penalties
Saturday 12th October kick off 2pm
It has only gone and happened again !
Twice, within four days. Who says that lightening doesn't strike twice ?
Not a lot to write, to be perfectly honest. Other than more total dominance, more chances wasted and more annoyance coupled with a heavy heart at losing a game that had many to nil written all over it.
South Sefton came with…Continue

Ashville 1-0 Maghull
Wednesday 9th October
How many times will it happen, A team dominates the play, yet somehow loses !
I suppose the winning run had to come to an end at some point, but in such a fashion and to such a goal, really doesn't make sense.
Every player put in a shift last night, nobody ducked out and if there were any semblance of sense in this game, then Maghull would have a six point lead again.
I really am finding it difficult to…Continue

Maghull 3-1 Manor Athletic
Saturday 5th October 2013 kick off 3pm
Somebody told me, that this game kicked off at 3pm on Saturday. It seemed more like 4pm.
Aside from a hotly disputed penalty to Manor, on the stroke of half time, absolutely nothing of any significance occurred. Even the penalty award was so innocuous, that it took us by surprise. But Mike Dixon was beaten and the scoreline at the interval was one nil to the lower league visitors.

UK newspaper The Independent ran a story on the 20th September 2013, about the Glazers floating yet more share in Manchester United on the NYSE, with another £230m -£250m being the figure talked about.
At that time the official response from United was that it was twelve months since the original filing, this was merely procedure, Ed Woodward himself said that the filing was only a normal stock exchange requirement.…Continue

Maghull 2 - 1 West Kirby
Saturday 28th September 2013 kick off 3pm
I feel like I am picking on the side of late. Maybe, being league leaders brings too much expectation.But Saturday really should have been a lot easier, than it turned out to be.
Then again, Lee Mullen having an Anders Limpar moment within two minutes did not help matters. What possessed him to handle the ball, only he knows, but it gave West Kirby the perfect start, as the penalty was…Continue

The accession of David Moyes to the Manchester United throne was much heralded affair, the like of which has never been seen before at Old Trafford, or any other club for that matter, then I suppose it was a rare occasion, Sir Alex retiring, the last game of the season and a full house at Old Trafford, what better way to grab all…Continue

Waterloo GSOB 2-4 Maghull
Saturday 21st September 2013 kick off 2pm
Let's be nice shall we.
Thirty seconds in, Mikey Cummins is put through, but his shot strikes the underside of the bar and down on the wrong side of the line, for Maghull. An early warning of what was to come ! Not really, because Waterloo, themselves, had a very good opportunity to open the scoring, when the centre forward was put clean through only to strike his shot woefully wide of the mark.…Continue

Newton 0-3 Maghull
Saturday 14th September 2013 kick off 3pm
I am here to report on a football match, so I will do that.
Two great strikes from the edge of the box, from Rob Dutton, gave us a cracking start. And a tremendous platform to go on and boost the goal difference.
A run from deep, cutting in from the left and taking advantage of a moses moment in the Newton defence, Dutton struck home to open the scoring. Soon after and a move between Tom Foley…Continue

Vauxhall Motors Reserves 1-3 Maghull
Tuesday 10th September 2013 kick off 7.30pm
This is becoming a good habit. Five away day trips and four wins.
The boss has certainly found that winning formula. Though he did puzzle us in the second half.
Against a side who played the first half with a very high line, Maghulls normal fluent passing game was left to the back four, while the midfield were left to make hay, spraying passes over and through…Continue

Upton AA 3-4 Maghull
Saturday September 7th 2013 kick off 3pm
Seven goals, a sending off, some shocking defending and puzzlement with the officials. Now how do I cram all this into two paragraphs !
Dillon, Williams 2 and Hastings scored for Maghull, some players scored three goals for Upton amidst some awful defending,Mullen sent off for Maghull and the referee could have had a better game. Three points and back level with the leaders.
There, I did…Continue

Its official, Gareth Bale is Real Madrid’s new "no ll" a lot about this move was mostly mental (the need to sign a big player to continue Perez's Galactico era or spend ridiculous amounts to keep Madrid's ego high or maybe as a rebuttal to Barca signing Neymar), because technically speaking, there were other areas in the team that probably needed reinforcement more than the left wing where Bale has made his name, especially when you consider the fact that Real already have in their…Continue
