WordPress seems happier with Win7 than Win10, and a change of computer has let me add more content and repost the report I did a few hours ago: It was January 2017 when I last reported on this side of the Pennines, which is not surprising, given the season(s) – and close seasons – we’ve […]

From_Our_Archives_featured _image

John McCormick writes: wasn’t it good to see Jordan Henderson picking up that trophy the other day? It wasn’t his first, either. Way back in 2011-12 he’d been on the winning side as Liverpool picked up the League cup. He’d also been a runner-up in a few competitions (FA Cup, Europa League,  Champions League, Premiership […]

  No game, and no need – or desire – for a relegation review so soon after the last one, which means I’m taking another meander around the Northwest to bring you up to date, more or less, with some of the clubs on this side of the Pennines. I was going to title this […]

SA’s Essay: never say die attitude at Liverpool brings welcome point

Malcolm Dawson writes…..an away point is always good and after it seemed like defeat was on the cards especially welcome. We are still a few wins away from safety and even two on the bounce might not get us out of the bottom three after today’s results but let’s not quibble. Sam was happy and […]

Sixer’s Liverpool Soapbox: when sorrows come they come not single spies

Malcolm Dawson writes…..Sunderland have won fewer games than any other team in the Premier League. Even QPR who haven’t mustered a single point away from home have won two more games than SAFC and no prizes for guessing who their first victim was. Even Burton Albion beat them before they tasted victory against us. The […]

Jake: 'when your secret weapon is Danny Graham you know you're in trouble'

Malcolm Dawson writes……a few problems with the website server has delayed us passing on the contents of Senor Poyet’s post match e-mail to M Salut but we’re here now – better late than never.
