Re: Any news on Nathan's return

I've read a report today that states that Nathan has done his MCL and ACL whilst at Alty and that's him done for the season. Dont know what this means for his retention prospects. But it cant be good.

Eric Harrison played for Barrow the entire time that Colin Appleton managed Barrow.
You are right salt cellar. I should've checked my memories with my programme collection. Strange I remember him at the beginning and the end but not so much in the middle of that period.

Re: Eric Harrison RIP

When Jimmy Mallon passed away there were some great memories expressed regarding how good Mallon and Edwards were in that 66/67 promotion winning side. Imagine then those two full-backs efectively playing as wing-backs before the term really existed with Eric Harrison and George Smith holding the de...

Re: Agustien gone

A great shame we didn't have the Newby boys as this manager would have made something of them. Elliot has scored 6 goals from midfield for Chorley and was player of the year while Alex has now got 14. Both local boys who I would guess would have progressed uner Ian Evatt as they seem to be doing at...

Re: Barrow v Bromley Match thread

It's too early to be talking about next season it is only February, a lot can happen between now and the end of this season. I was about to post similar. We should not be discussing retained list in February. Other than perhaps a couple of posts above, I dont think we are seriously discussing the r...

Re: Barrow v Bromley Match thread

Well its all got a bit grey, gloomy and miserable on the forum all of a sudden to match the February weather! So much gloomier than on that warm and pleasant afternoon in April when an overpaid disinterested rump of a squad did its damndest to get itself relegated against a Chester side bankrupt and...

Re: Agustien gone

The lad's been in football quite a while - you would think he would know better! His history would suggest that he's probably been good enough to warrant the attentions of an agent since his early Swansea days. And to be fair, playing in the Premiership you'd probably need one. So like many other p...

Re: Agustien gone

They say timing is everything. In this case the lack of timing in terms of getting him another club tells you all you need to know about his Agency. Looks like he'll end up at a NL club and maybe not on any more than he would've got by staying. It should be dawning on him by now that a couple of fur...

Re: Agustien gone

I think a few folk are overreacting in terms of the comments on Saturday about the fans. He prefaced it by saying the fans had been great all season and he was disappointed that the players got stick rather than encouragement on Saturday. That’s fair comment in my eyes. Now, given the inherent gloo...

Re: BARROW V Halifax match thread

In the stand it was a lot of the usual “I’ve only come to have a moan” brigade, but more loud and more persistent (ok it was a shocking game) than usual. It’s a boring and predictable attitude, and as Evatt said on the radio, unhelpful to the team. I might be wrong, but largely the loud critical on...

Re: 0-0 stalemate with Halifax as we reach 40 points

Great report as always Barrow Lad. Take no notice of the 2 English teachers.... It's a forum not an exam Maybe he will be held back for detention. Firstly thanks Barrow Lad, your reports always seem informed, dispassionate and a fair reflection and I for one would miss em if they weren't there. Sin...

What a players agent says about their client is about as reliable as what a politician says about Brexit.
