Ten things about Northampton on Good Friday!

1. After a lovely lunch time stop in Daventry, courtesy of the wonderful Moose Tours we arrived at the PTS Academy Stadium formerly known as Sixfields where we received a very warm welcome from one of their very friendly staff at the ground, and then mingled with the friendly locals, several of whom even said…

All Together Now!

I simply cannot remember how many times there has been a look of sheer amazement when people have asked me who I support and I have responded by telling me that it is my beloved Silkmen, and that I have no interest at all whatsoever in Citeeh United, Liverpool Stoke or any of the other…

Ten things about Forest Green Rovers on Saturday!

When my alarm went off at 6.45a.m. on Saturday morning, I have to admit that I did think about turning over and pretending that I had never heard the alarm at all. This had absolutely nothing to do with joining my fellow compatriots on the legendary Moose Tours; having relaxed and comfortable journeys to and…

Ten things about Exeter on Tuesday!

Liverpool and Citeeh in Champions League action on the same night as our must win game against the play-off chasing Grecians of Exeter City was always going to sort of impact upon the gate, and at twenty five to eight, I whispered to the phenomenally hard working Bobby Trafford that we could struggle to reach…

Ten things about Morecambe on Saturday!

1. First of all I would like to pay tribute to a marvellous young man and his family who made me feel truly humbled when I met them all prior to Saturday’s game. Young Ben Crowther and his brothers Harry and James were mascots for the day, and this incredibly brave young man and his…

Ten things about Lincoln away!

First of all I would look to place on record, my sincere congratulations to all those associated with the running of Lincoln City Football Club because you really do know how a football club should be run and are now reaping the rewards! Excellent marketing of the club and a management team who really engage…

Ten things about Stevenage at home!

On Saturday I watched in utter disbelief as many decent diehard Silkmen fans were unceremoniously moved from their usual vantage point behind the dugout in London Road for no apparent reason at the time. Fans were queuing until practically the half-time whistle to gain entry into that side of the stadium, and those from Star…

Ten things about Yeovil!

First of all my apologies for the delay in getting round to doing my ten things. This is a combination of a delayed return to Cheshire due to the absolute hoot we had with the incomparable Moose Tours (during the utterly amazing long weekend away at the Headland Hotel in Torquay) and also having to…

Danny Whitaker’s magic!

Okay I admit it. I love the bones of Danny Whitaker! Not only is he one of the best midfielders ever to have worn the beloved blue & white of my Silkmen, he is also an incredibly humble and genuine guy who knows what it is like to live and work in the town of…

Ten things about MK Dons on Saturday!

 When I first found out before the game that there were nine (yes 9!!) changes, my first words to our ever so pleasant club chaplain Chris Whiteley whom I was chatting to when confirmation of this news came through was ‘this will either be a massacre or a miracle’ at which he laughed heartily. As he went on…

Enough of the rhetoric and more of the reality please Sol!!

Saturday 9th March 2019 marks the start of a week which is arguably the most important week of our season thus far where we will have two home games against high flying opponents in the Dons of Milton Keynes followed by the Grecians of Exeter City on Tuesday 12th March 2019, and then the Silkmen go…

Ten things about Bury on Saturday!!

First of all I would like to pay tribute to the superb Silkmen following who sang their hearts out for the lads for much of the game in spite of what they had to witness on the pitch which was far from pretty I can assure you. I clearly acknowledge that the off field issues…
