Man of the Match: Bury (Home)

Bury ran out 4-1 winners on Saturday as The Silkmen suffered another disappointing afternoon at Moss Rose.

Ten things about Bury yesterday!

Ten things about Cambridge United!

In my article entitled ‘The Only Way is Up’ I spoke of the need to look from a half full cup as opposed to an half empty one when considering our current plight. As a consequence I will start with what positives I saw from today before considering the less positive ones, and then finish…

The only way is up!

For the remainder of this season, this just isn’t the time to see an half empty glass but a half full one for Danny, Neil and the lads. As Yazz and the Plastic Population pointed out in their inspirational chart topping hit of 1988, it really is a case of ‘The Only Way is Up’…
