Salford City 4 Mossley 1

MOSSLEY PANTO AT MOOR LANE…

The three wise men were nowhere to be seen in the Mossley line-up last night as their panto rolled into town, gifting Salford a first home win of the season.

So roll up, roll up…for a fantastic slapstick tale of A-lad-in-goal, beanstalks and pussies in boots…

Full frolics here…


Salford City v Mossley Salford City v Mossley

ACT 1

A cold, wintery night in Salford. The Mossley team, featuring a zillion beanstalks in defence, midfield and attack begin the panto playing the straight guys to perfection. Serious passing and movement? Solid back line? A shot at goal forcing a diving save by Andy Robertson? This wasn't supposed to be in the script! 

ACT 2

Half an hour into the show and the comedy finally begins as Craig Mahon, conjuring with the ball on the corner of the area but going nowhere, gets flattened to earn a penalty…`Oh no it wasn't!' plead the Mossley defenders…
`Oh yes it f**kin' was…'

Rhodri Giggs - panto villain to opposing teams - strokes the spot kick home and Salford have the lead.

ACT 3

Booooo! Hisssss! Mossley's Sam Walker gets sent off for a scything foul on Salford's Alex Mortimer…What's the old joke? He's Cinderella – late for the ball…Exit stage left.

ACT 4

There's still time for a bit of Salford magic as a top ball into the box sees Craig Mahon control and flick it into the net in one deft movement – 2-0

ACT 5

It's almost half time, so bring on the blind back end of the panto horse, also known as Mossley goalie Peter Collinge. He clops up to clear a simple slow back pass down the field but misses completely, the ball inches under his hooves and rolls into the net. `Where is it?'….`It's behind you!'

…and how does he feel? `As daft as a brush!'3-0

INTERVAL
And there's a half time show too! Watching the dour, bemused Mossley supporters scratching their woolly hats, wondering what the hell is going on…

ACT 6

It's time for a bit of audience participation as Salford turn on the style, with shimmies, flicks and Fabregas skills… `Are we Arsenal in disguise?...Are we Aaaaaarsenal in disguiiiiiiiiiiise?' A Salford header is scrambled off the line, a shot grazes the post… And then….

ACT 7

And then… with some Wishee Washee defending Mossley manage to score -3-1

ACT 8
 
More audience participation as the Boos ring out every time Mossley touch the ball…And Hurrays! whenever Salford win it…`Boo…Boo…Booooooo!' …`Hurray…Hurray…Hurraaaaaay!!!' The junior tangerines (or `clementines', as they're now known) are loving it…

ACT 9

Ten minutes to the final curtain – and it's curtains for Mossley as Dave Neville, making his No 9 debut, caps a great first game with a poacher's goal to make it 4-1

ACT 10

Before the final whistle has even gone Mossley supporters leave to get their horse and carts back to the hills. Meanwhile Salford City supporters celebrate a first home league win of the season, and a home and away double win over Mossley.

Can we play them every week? Er no – it's league leaders, Colwyn Bay at home on Saturday…`Oh no it isn't'… `Oh yes it f***ing is!'

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

Bizarre graffiti art has appeared near Salford Central Station depicting two delighted looking Peppa Pigs by the slogan 'Communism is for the children'. The art has led to much amusement and bemusement but is probably related to China banning the popular kids' cartoon.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
