Ten things about Colchester United away!

Another big thanks to Will McGinnis for his superb efforts at chauffeuring yours truly, PBJ & Bobby Trafford on the 450 mile round trip to Essex where we eventually made it back to God’s county here in leafy Cheshire at around 11.30p.m. due to Bobby’s media responsibilities; frequent calls of nature and motorway closures due…

Ten things about Newcastle United on Tuesday!

Once again a big thanks to the legend that is Will McGinnis for driving Perksy, Bobby Trafford, PBJ & yours truly to the game. Boy can Trafford moan and eat, and jeez he can take lot’s of (ahem) fresh air in as well!! Wow what an impressive stadium St James’ Park is. The lights practically…

Ten things about Exeter City!

First of all a huge thanks to Will McGinnis who acted as chauffeur to yours truly and MTFC Media Manager Bob Trafford for the long drive to and from Exeter in his newly acquired Ford Kuga and a very pleasant experience it was too. This was in spite of having Bob’s constant whinges about the…

Ten things about Yeovil!

How lovely was it to be enjoying yesterday evening with an alcoholic beverage in hand, and a big smile on your face after your beloved team has deservedly got three points? This was against a backdrop of more apparent intrigue than you will get in any James Bond movie with Neil Howarth allegedly sacked several…

Positive Signs for the Future!

I was delighted to receive an email from Bob Trafford (Media Manager at MTFC) with a very heartwarming welcome into my role as Chairman of the Silkmen Supporters Trust (SST). In addition to this, Bob also provided a clear statement of intent within his message, of his desire to work proactively and collaboratively with the…

Ten things about MK Dons!

First of all all I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to Peter de Courcy for stepping into the breach and providing a thoroughly entertaining (if somewhat depressing) A-Z account of our hugely disappointing defeat to Maidstone United last week when I missed my first game of the season. Anyway back to today’s events and as…

From joy to despair: Why has it gone so wrong?

Cast your minds back to April 28th 2018, and under the tutelage of club legend ‘Sir’ John Askey, the Silkmen achieved a modern day footballing miracle in reaching the Football League on a minuscule budget whilst playing free flowing, attractive football. At the very least it equalled the achievements of the Foxes of Leicester City…

Ten things about Bury yesterday!

I started my ten things last week with looking at the positives first, and I shall continue in that vein this week. The FIRST positive was the wonderfully observed minutes silence by players, officials and fans of both teams in memory of those who lost their lives in service of their country since the end…

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’…

Ten things about Northampton!

 It breaks my heart to do this because I NEVER wanted to write this about a performance like this from a Silkmen team that two Silkmen legends in Danny and Neil are managing, but I am afraid I am going to have to! The team tonight provided us with an early Halloween nightmare because that was…
