Great money spinner for stanley especially if they get a decent draw in the next round if only we could get a decent cup run going

Was a cracker. To be fair he's a much better player than I ever gave him credit for when he was here.

Here's a link I think.

Must admit, I was a none believer. I guess he just wasn't my type of player. Couldn't argue with his assist and goal record though.

It was a case of McConville or Rooney at the time - the vast majority of us preferred the latter but we certainly missed his goals and assists last season. Somewhat of an unsung hero.

Same here. His miss down here against the Gas was out of the Chris Iwelumo school of international finishing.

I was wrong though. Would have been interesting to see what Macca got out of him here at Chester.

Always thought he got bad reviews on here. He was a brilliant one touch player. Always knew who was around him and played the ball straight away. Unless you watched him you may have thought he wasn't in the game. Far from it a huge amount of play was done by him. When in a good position had a cracking shot. Reminded me of Martin Peters.

Always liked him purely because he was a goal scoring midfielder, they are really hard to come by at any level, i think he just needed the right manager to get the best out of him going forward and back.

With us he was never trusted to play in a two man midfield let alone wide.

I think in defence of us haters, the midfield was extremely unbalanced with him and Rooney in it. I always felt sorry for Kingsley James(what ever happened to him?). He used to run around like a loon, covering for McConville and Rooney.

I know James left us so that he could be closer to home as his mum was ill. The fact Macclesfield is only slightly closer in comparison, does that mean that his mum's got better? Hopefully so

Back to McConville I will never forget his performance in the cup at Stockport, he absolutely hated them, one of the best performances I've seen of someone playing against their old team. Think he scored 2 and set 1 up off the top of my head
