I think he's keeping his powder dry. If we can ambush them at their place and follow it up on New Year's Day they would have a lot of ground to make up.

It's got to be on the list of things that needs addressing if the club is going to go any higher.

It was a lot more than Jordan putting his foot to the ground. What he made contact with is impossible to say from the TV angle.

I'm looking for a response next Saturday. All the distractions are out the way now. We need to push on while others are trying to fit cup games into their schedule.

I am going to apologise to Hashtag for playing the man rather than the arguement. I wil blame it on the beer.

Until we have the funds to do something about the lack of roof at the Chequers End there's no harm in showing a bit of compassion to visiting fans when conditions are as foul as they were yesterday.. I'd like to do that regardless of how we are treated at other grounds.

We were as good as them even with only ten. I can only aessume that the management decided we are going for promotion and therefore game time was more important than winning. No worries as long as we go up or come  close.

Absolutely. At this level there is no need. No idea who HashtagAlty is but I can form an opinion of him from his posts.

If we are going to do anything it should be possible to protect that side. It isn't raining 24 x 7

Decent enough assessment by their guy

I wasn't there yesterday. I went to meet up with a school mate and we went to a Div 2 game. The chairman turned up in his Roller and the fans sang Happy Birthday to him! The infrastructure was better but the talent on the pitch wasn't. Get down to Moss Lane and enjoy it while you can.

Don't beat yourself up. We all want to do the best we can.

Iím enjoying our success on the pitch as much as anyone, but it probably goes a bit deeper than that for some in terms of attending home games. Itís worth remembering that (despite undeniable improvements being made in the boardroom), if the current chairman had his way we would probably now be sitting 10th in the EvoStik League, with Matt Doughty telling everyone on Twitter how well we had done in a draw away at Mikcleover Sports and Ian Foden trying to convince everyone that we canít compete with the likes of South Shields. Fortunately it didnít turn out that way and Ďthatí (5 hour) board meeting was one of the most important weíve had in years.

On the crowd today, maybe we deserve more but it wasnít dreadful. The weather was awful and itís the run up to Xmas. And I think the new fanbase is more affected by United/City playing on a Saturday than we used to be, but also it probably didnít help that Telford brought about 15. Granted, they may have dispersed around the ground a bit by the time I came in, but it looked an appalling following for what should have been a big game for them.



According to this forum's homepage we're playing Mickleover next.  Great result today. I'm looking forward, not back. What's done is done

I don't think physicality comes in to it. From what I have seen so far we just play around the opposition. It used to drive me nuts when we had a centre forward up front and we hoofed it up hopefully. #no wonder we got relegated

Are they rain covers or frost covers or both?

My session at the Altrincham athletics club was cancelled last night due to a waterlogged track. Standing water everywhere. More rain forecast so saturday will be the first chance to see how the improved drainage is holding up. That playing surface is so important to our game.

Well, as ever some on here had him down as useless this time last year. I guess that's why we aren't managers
