Outstanding today, single handedly kept us in that.

To think a year ago some people were questioning Maccas ability and was telling him to leave the club (I understand 80% of the players in front of him aren't that good and he's tested more than he should be)

...but this man really is a hero. I hope he keeps us up himself

Good job Macca!!! As skrill said, he IS a grimsby legend.

Sat in the central Pontoon and that reaction save first half was unbelievable, the player who turned it goalward was blind to Macca and the ball was behind Macca before he clawed it out and away...i think the player was reeling off to the corner post celebrating his"goal"....
penalty save excellent as well and turned the game, fired the crowd up and brought on the late revival.

Salute you Macca.

That goes down as one of the best ever goalkeeping performances I have ever seen at B.P., not just the penalty save but the point-blank save at the free kick just feet from the goal another stunner in the first half and his all-around game and determination inspired just not his fellow players but the fans in the ground. No wonder the whole ground rose to applaud him off the field.

Give him a 2 year deal now. No matter where Shrewsbury are in the pyramid, Hurst will want him, even as back-up, so let’s get it sorted.

Can a penalty save turn a season? Not sure but it certainly turned a sure fire defeat into a draw, if that had gone in it would have sent BP into a massive downer.

Quality performance from James today as we can see it was no coincidence we plummeted when he got injured

To save two penalties in consecutive weeks takes some going. Well done James. Concerning that we’ve conceded penalties in our last 3 games though.

I agree with Mrs Doyle, I can't think of a better goalkeeping performance at BP. Not only that, but he went to persuade those Town fans who were getting involved in the trouble to back off. His interview on RH after the game shows just how committed he is to the club. Give him a new, improved contract now. When MJ starts with a blank piece of paper in the summer, Macca's name should be first on it. I think he's in the same class as Harry Wainman and Danny Coyne, my favourite Town goalkeepers.

We need to stay up to keep him, he is no longer a non league keeper, I used to love Batchy but Danny Coyne is the best keeper I’ve seen in a Town shirt and today James hit that level.

He stood out as a leader in a side that lacks leadership.

Not forgetting how he lept over the Osmond end fence to retrieve the ball from the Vale fans when we were still 1-0 down. If just one player could turn a season around with a defining moment that performance could be Macca's.

Wear that lucky kit again Macca one man stood out yesterday in more ways than one and that man was you.

Was having a beer with a Liverpool fan tonight and Yellow Submarine started playing in the pub. He said it reminded him of a chant they had to that tune ‘we all wish we had a team of Carraghers’ due to his never say die attitude and dedication to the team (yes I know .......)
Then just watched the Macca interview and it occurred to me that it might be a fitting tribute if the fans behind the goal at Lincoln sang the same song ‘we all wish we had a team of James Mckeowns’
Wish I could be there but my next game is Swindon then Notts C and Forest Fungus (desperately hoping we’re still up but will be going anyway)
Very impressed with MJ so far - feels like we’ve got a proper manager again. No BS, no outrageous promises, just getting stuck in and doing a job with intelligence, diligence and passion 🤞

I was only thinking that when he jumped into osmond to get ball how some of the Vale fans tried getting to macca. They were looking for trouble even then.

Think i read on here that they had something like 15 shots, which is as many as we've had in about ten games. Barnet have the best form of all the clubs at the bottom, despite being 24th. They are not out of it yet, especially if they win tonight.
