We could have lost Shaun Densmore for a very long time following that tackle in the first half. Horrendous, straight red was completely warranted but not a true reflection of a game that was played the right way by two teams who kept it on the ground and clearly wanted to progress.

Their fans have every right to feel aggrieved following our second, there was a quite blatant foul on a ‘74 player in the build-up. It wouldn’t have changed much though. The writing was on the wall when we named such a strong defence, they were reduced to snatching at half chances of which I can only remember two. Professional and assured, as you would expect.

I know it’s not a night for negatives but I must say I expected more of Sean Miller, who played as a #9 but didn’t really influence the game as you’d expect. Perhaps we were just trialling him as a forward, as the more natural choice would have been Peers #9 Miller #11.


That's why football is a great game. Riley's tackle was a yellow at most and if it was a red why wasn't 't your lad sent off late in the second half for the same thing. Didn't like the way your keeper and six players surrounded the ref....

We competed really well and if it had stayed 11v11 who knows. Also tell your radio guys we are 1874 not Vics

1874 fan comes in peace. Serious question folks why the very low attendance for the game today?

Your reserves are playing 1874 tomorrow at Middlewich.

They'll wriggle out of it I've no doubt. Rushe knows most of the tricks by now (provided he's learned by his previous mistakes).

thought he, JR was no longer involved  Grin

Looking forward to seeing some new faces whilst trying to work out how Jim Gannon gets paid on crowds of 89 ;-)

You lot taking 80 fans then

Graham, while we have got you on and everyone is in a nice mood, could you answer me a couple of questions of the Northwich thing.

Do the two clubs both feel that they are the real Northwich Victoria or it is not like that?

Was there a lot of acrimony at the start with some people sticking with the Flixton based thing who you may have expected to back the fans one?

Do 1874 fans look for the other Northwichs result on Saturday and enjoy a loss or are you not as narrow minded as I would be.

Genuinely interested on how it all works...





Mark

Thanks for the interest. Genuinely most 1874 fans have little or no interest in what purports to be Northwich Victoria. We are a new club with a seperate identity who have no association with NVFC (or JRFC as they are known as). The only fans left at Flixton are a number of known individuals who continue to stick their heads in the sand and don't seem to question how the club is run.
Maybe the most telling point is that from a former Vics fan of over 30 years I'll be hoping you put one over them tonight.


They are rumoured to be taking up a ground share option with Witton from next season and the Vics fans left seem to think all the 1874 fans will flock over there to support them once they are back in Northwich. Yet again they are deluded if they think that will happen.

If you fancy taking in a game at Barton Stadium you will be made very welcome.

I see vics get the plum tie away at tranmere....wtf are tranmere doing in the Cheshire cup?Huh

No they didn't, 1874 got the plum draw away at Tranmere, and after our giant killing act against Cammell Laird in the previous round they could suffer the same fate.

Any Vics fan wanting to see the club restored to respectable levels can now go and watch 1874 Northwich

and what a great experience it is , three wins on the bounce, currently fourth in the league, over 100 season tickets sold and crowds averaging 350 plus.

I watched Chester v Vics today. Chester should have won 5-1. Vics had one attack and scored.

Don't know what game you were watching. 1-1 was a fair result, Vics were on top until Chester made their subs and we went down to 10 men. Chester will be a threat to the BSN purely on size and budget and their obvious attraction for the top players.

Depends what the rules are. If the Evo-stick league decide that not fulfilling a fixture results in a fine then why should Vics be treated any differently.

Also Mark (I support A**y and am Chairman of of both W*tton and The Evo-stick league) Harris will no doubt have had some input
13  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: No Points Deduction for the Vics on: September 20, 2011, 11:22:46 AM
This hasn't been confirmed yet, but if those are the rules why should Vics be treated any different to any other club!...(awaits long essay from bitter A**y fans.....)

It certainly was not an ideal situation at the beginning of the season and questions still need to be asked as to why we didn't play over the canal which apparently was an option.

Thought you lot thought your squad last year was sh*te yet you welcome with open arms more of the "Relegation 2011 Intake"...derbies could be back on the agenda even sooner than I thought.

...at least you've seen sense over that carthorse Jones and have seen the light about Summerskill!
15  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Brian Summerskill on: July 20, 2011, 01:55:20 PM
I wouldn't read much into DJ's commnets. Summerskill played well last season and is a loss for Vics this season. Happy for him to step upto BSN as surely that's what its all about, progress.

Don't think he will help you win the league though!
