Altrincham FC First Team / Neil Young v José Mourinho
« on: Yesterday at 07:36:52 PM »

At long last, we will be able to determine just who is the real 'special one'.

In all seriousness, what a cracking draw for a decent Non League club.

Perhaps we could win him over by launching a crowdfunding campaign to buy him a new milk frother, as the one that he previously claimed on expenses has probably seen better days by now?

Can whoever does the post match interview with whoever please ask about Peers'  disappearance .


Commentary said he has an injury; a strain I think they said.

The commentator stated that Peers has a hamstring injury.

That was extremely frustrating viewing.

I thought that Bromley were the better side and warranted their victory. They saw the game out impressively.

We lacked any sort of creative cutting edge and were utterly toothless up front. The quest to locate a decent centre forward continues.

That red card for Kosylo did look to be a rather harsh decision.

Ryan Colclough released by SC**thorpe United after investigation into assault charge

Colclough was suspended by the Iron after being charged with assaulting a police officer following an incident at a Taco Bell drive-through

By James Findlater, Football Writer, Grimsby Live

SC**thorpe United have confirmed that Ryan Colclough has left the club following an investigation into an assault charge.

The 25-year-old was suspended by the club after being charged with assaulting a police officer following an incident at a Taco Bell drive-through in June.

South Yorkshire Police attended the scene at Herten Triangle retail park in Doncaster “following reports of a man acting drunk and disorderly in a public place”.

A statement from the constabulary said an officer was assaulted and sustained injuries to his face during an arrest attempt.

Despite information of the charge being released on September 28, Colclough was named the Iron’s captain for the EFL Trophy clash with Manchester City U21s a day later, with the club not finding out about the incident until the following week.

The club have now officially confirmed that Colclough has left the club by mutual consent, with no further comment being made.

“It seemed impossible with today’s social media, and every aspect of that, that we didn’t pick that up,” SC**thorpe chairman Peter Swann told BBC Radio Humberside last week.

“As soon as we found out, we acted. We are disappointed we’re in this position, but the club will act professionally and deal with the situation forthwith.

“I would be disappointed with anyone that wasn’t honest with the club about their situation, because it’s not just about giving us the information.

“The first thing we would say is ‘how can we help the individual? Is there anything we can do?’ and we weren’t able to do that. That is disappointing.

“Our first priority is to look after the player, but if it’s detrimental to the club, the club comes first.”

Born in Burslem, Stoke, Colclough began his professional career with Crewe Alexandra before signing for Wigan Athletic in 2016.

The winger hit the headlines for more positive reasons while playing for Wigan in 2017 as he netted twice against Doncaster Rovers before being substituted to allow him to rush to the hospital to witness the birth of his second child.

Colclough signed for the Iron for an undisclosed fee in 2018 and made 37 appearances with injuries playing a big part during his time at the club.

He will appear before Doncaster Magistrates’ Court on November 24.**thorpe-united-winger-ryan-colclough-charged-assaulting-police-officer-taco-bell-drive-thru-doncaster-2993474

At last, Phil Parkinson gets to witness an Alty National League victory in person!

Before the stream started and during half time Boreham Wood were showing adverts of what was available from their club shop with prices. Seems like a good idea in the run up to Christmas.

Excellent thinking.

I have just ordered one of these as my wife's Christmas present. She will be positively euphoric when she unwraps her gift:

I recall him being an excellent goalkeeper in a very strong and successful Telford United team which included the likes of Harry Wiggins and Ken McKenna.

Do Boreham Wood still impose an embargo on any radio commentary by the media personnel of visiting clubs?

What a relief.

A nice birthday present for me!

A trifle fortunate to win that one, particularly as Chesterfield had by far the better opportunities during the second half. However, their defence never looked convincing.

That was Kosylo's best performance to date. Clever dummy in the build-up to Hancock's winning goal.

We never seemed to get to grips with their right wing back Cropper all evening though.

We may have just expedited the delivery of John Pemberton's P45 there.

Wasn't he the Liverpool player who bet the cote he'd miss the penalty and paid up after the game or is my memory playing tricks?

That was Alan Kennedy.

Probably the best player on Saturday... just ahead of Kosylo & Dales for Man of the Match... imho...

Well done Connor... :)

I'm not quite sure why you would nominate Dales as a candidate for man of the match.

Yes, he had a promising 10-minute spell during the second half but he had been utterly anonymous during the opening 45 minutes and was eventually substituted on 72 minutes.

Reminds me of when young was in charge. He Kept bringing in players to fill gaps and most of those were not good enough. If you get beat at this level so what if your full squad has given there all but at moment I can’t see it. I have watched all games before anyone asks and we look shaky. How many goals do we need to give away by messing about at the back. We are not a top premiership team we Alty. Let man up and get going.
There’s a big, big difference from Young’s time. Young hadn’t gathered any squad together at all, then had that group of players decimated by injury. Young just recycled rubbish with further rubbish. The only reason PP has brought loan players in is because he’s been forced to by injuries to his highly capable squad. The three new loanees he had available yesterday hadn’t had a trading session with the other players and were thrown in the deep end through desperate necessity.

 Neil Young was playing preseason games months after the season had started. Chalk and cheese.

Neil Young actually only lasted the first three weeks of the 2016/17 season as Alty's manager.

He was sacked after six league matches, the first three of which resulted in draws. That 6-0 home defeat by AFC Fylde prompted a total meltdown.
