Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Pre-season friendlies

The main reason we didn't play any higher opposition in friendlies last pre-season was that we couldn't play any home games, due to the pitch being replaced.

Playing music after goals is bad sportsmanship, our club would never sink that low.

Especially Tom Hark by the Piranhas.

I don't think it's bad sportsmanship, I just find it tacky.

Without getting into an interminable argument regarding musical taste, surely the compromise here is just to turn the volume down a bit? It's not Bowlers in 1995.  ;D

To quote Pete, it's not a tea dance.

It's not The Prodigy live at G-Mex either, though, is it?

It's unlikely to impact upon me any time soon, but if it's loud enough that you can't hear someone who's stood next to you (in this kind of setting) then it's probably too loud.

For what it's worth, I really like the initiative.

PP leaving is not an option at this stage. That would simply be suicidal.

For what it's worth, I think we'll beat Woking on Saturday and then hopefully we'll be having a different conversation.

In what sense suicidal?


It would most likely cripple us, financially, I suspect.

Portsmouth a couple of years ago was absolutely taters.

Altrincham FC First Team / Re: ground safety work

Why that led to the whole golf road end needing shutting, Iíve no idea

Once inspectors attend a site due to a potential safety issue, they quite naturally start sniffing around and looking for other things. The worrying thing for me is that once an area has been deemed unsafe, it would require a very brave individual indeed to allow it to reopen unless the proper remedial work has taken place and been inspected. My fear, now this can of worms has been opened, is that it could potentially be a very long time and a whole lot of £££ before we are operating at anything like full capacity again. Whoever started this sh*tstorm knew that this would be the case.

Crowdfunding has worked well for us previously, but what's needed, with extreme urgency, is details about the exact works required and the timescales involved. This is a dire situation, it really is.

Once the Council/HSE start to take an interest in an area/facility, they generally leave no stone unturned, hence the extent of the closures within the stadium. The only surprise for me is that this didn't happen sooner.

It would be good to know more specific details about the required remedial works, if it can be communicated to us.

What an incredibly desolate photo that is. Did anyone on here ever go there?

Looks a bit better here...


I showed these photos to my Dad as he lived in Kirkby many, many years ago. Apparently these two photos are of different places, one being the football ground and the other being Kirkby Sports Stadium, which was apparently involved in some kind of political controversy.

The ground is tired and I'm not overly surprised by this turn of events. On the plus-side, we have been allowed to continue hosting games, albeit with restrictions in place. When the perimeter wall collapsed at Runcorn in the 90's, they were forced to play games elsewhere until the matter was resolved.

Safety first and foremost and let's hope the issues get resolved quickly.

He was a really nice man. RIP Eddie.

Thinking of his family at this sad time.

I can see this going to a replay. It's never easy at Southport and they will be right up for it.

It's a long season ahead and don't forget how badly we dropped off in the second half of last season. The depth of the squad will be of the utmost importance, especially if we get more injuries/suspensions etc.

I don't really think it's a game where we should be setting up with two defensive midfielders. We need to be on the front foot from the off.
