Halloween comes early, losing some basics and the cost of injuries.

Maghull 1-3 Southport Trinity

I would love to put some gloss on Saturdays proceedings, but in all honesty, it was a horror show.

Take away a 10 minute spell in the second half, in which Maghull equalised and then looked progressive, it was a day best forgotten and cast into the mire of bad performances.

The away side started the better, controlling the game and creating a couple of chances. The longer the half went on, the closer…

Hillsborough: Why Was the Cover-up Allowed to Happen

Over the past couple of months the truth about Hillsborough has finally come to light. But for many people the release of the report from the Hillsborough Independent Panel only confirmed what they already knew: the police were responsible, lives could’ve been saved with a better response from emergency services, and the police tried to cover up their mistakes.

But why was the cover up allowed to happen? Unlike many disasters, Hillsborough was recorded by TV cameras and…

We can't have our Fergie and eat it

The latest in a seemingly endless line of off-pitch controversies came today. Rio Ferdinand refused to wear the Kick It Out t-shirts that the campaign co-ordinates players to wear in pre-match warm-ups every now and then. It was a story only because Jason Roberts had gone public a few days earlier saying he was not going to wear the t-shirt of the…

The mystery of the changies, a stonking crowd and a return to the bad old ways

Maghull 4-2 Hale

The beginning of the season paid a nasty, return visit to Old Hall Field, with our lads starting in a trance and a very silly goal being conceded. 

After last weeks appeal for a good crowd, they turned up in their droves (we need more international weekends if this is the case) and where treated to a very good game. Unfortunately, that early lapse was not a start for the home fans. 

The ball given away…

Milan '65, a crazy 35 minutes and a lesson in attacking, Womble style.

Chester Nomads 3-2 Maghull

I may rant a little, so please bear with me today.

But beforehand, let us chat about the game itself. 

The home side came out all guns blazing for 5 minutes. Obviously thinking back to the first game of the season, when they came to Maghull and mugged us with two in the first ten minutes, then ultimately took the points after defending for their lives for the following eighty.

From then on,…

Maghull 8 - 1 Ellesmere Port

Ok, the opener came, probably closer too 10 to 12 seconds, but that doesn't work.

It was nice to see that Ellesmere Port decided not to start on time, as Maghull must have been close to a record time for a first goal. John Maguire profiting from some neat work down the left by the recalled Marko Parvas.  

From then onwards, barring a good save from Mark Mawdsley midway through the first half and a…
