Dial M for Magloire


Well, we expected a few bumps in the road but not a one at Weymouth. Thankfully we bounced back with a win against our play-off rivals Sutton.

The transfer window came and went with no newcomers and two departures. Unfortunately one of them was not our beloved captain who appears to be on the injury list. Best place for him in all probability. Joe Bunney joining Grimsby will be no big miss as David Ferguson is a better full back.

One player who will be missed is Tyler Magloire who went back to Blackburn when his loan was up and has since joined Motherwell on loan. He is a very good centre back who would have been a massive help in our bid promotion. He could have been the difference in our return to League Two or another season in the jumpers for goalposts league.

Although we have Gary Liddle coming back to full fitness and Lewis Cass doing a good job in central defence, I would rate Magloire the best centre back we had at the club. It is a pity we could not have extended his loan to the end of the season but I wish him well in Scotland and for the rest of his career.
"Let us hope they wait for better weather before they attempt to play the game again. And then we give them a good hiding for wasting our time."

Once again we have a postponed match at Halifax, the third time this has happened. Let us hope they wait for better weather before they attempt to play the game again. And then we give them a good hiding for wasting our time.

Torquay, although still well clear at the top of the table arer having a bit of a wobble lately and are no longer looking invincible and all this happens when they are missing striker Danny Wright through injury. He is 36 years old now and was available on a free last summer. He would have fit in very nicely at Victoria Park.

Manager Dave Challinor looks to have a fully fit squad to pick from and is looking to let a couple of players out on loan, McDonald and Ofosu, if ever National Leagues North and South start playing again. Hopefully the National League clubs give the go-ahead to continue the season as we are looking good to get a play-off spot at the least. The squad is looking quite strong at present although a Mark Tinkler type midfielder would give us the boost we need and bring a more competitive presence to the side.

Goalkeeper Ben Killip is returning to his flapping ways and inclination to stay on his goal line and I think it is time for Henrich Rivas to return in goal and bring his commanding presence to bear in the penalty area.

Finally I would just like to say a word about ex-Poolie loanee Charlie Wyke. The former Borer striker couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo while he was with us and now he is banging the goals in like there is no tomorrow for the Makems. Although it pains me to say so I think Sunderland have got the right manager this time in Lee Johnson and he will get them back into the Championship.
