Including Lenighan, that's FORTY-TWO players. And that's not including those that have stayed on.

If Hannigan's fit, he'll surely start.

Can't honestly say the lad has been given a chance since returning to fitness. He's a good player and still young enough to get back to the level he was at before. Hope he propels Trafford to promotion.

He was as others have pointed out a rare bright spark in an otherwise awful season, but there is no way that PP can put him in the team ahead of the likes of Hanks, Poole or JJ in his current physical shape. I have to say I've been a bit disappointed with his lack of desire to lose weight and get fit.

The last point is interesting, and certainly gives the manager a decision to make in the summer. I suppose it all depends on how many of PP's attacking targets become available from elsewhere, as I'm sure he'll have ideas.

Am I right in saying he was brought on as a straight swap for Jordan up top against Ashton last Tuesday? The ball did suddenly start coming back a lot more often. Losing 3 key players from our spine in the last 10 minutes was pretty disastrous.

Brilliant read - thank you. This should be pinned up somewhere as 'how not to run a football club'. How much money do you think we frittered away on this dross?

Interestingly if you ran the same article on those relegated from the Conference with us, most maintained solid careers at NLN and above (Sinnott, Leather, Havern, O'Keefe, Ginnelly, Motley-Henry, Rankine).

Quiet summer of transfer business please PP.

Good manager, but was never going to work here long-term because of his location (I was amazed him, Clee, Reeves etc stayed so long).

We played some good football at times - but were bullied far too often as well.

I think our flurry of wins in the Autumn will hopefully see us through, as nobody else seems to be stringing together anything remotely similar.

 Tragic news

 RIP Dave

I was wondering as a Tribute to such a top Guy maybe a round of applause in
The 32nd minute at our next home game


 Any Thoughts

Great idea - I think that would be a great little tribute.

Very unfair - the lad was a rare bright spark at times last season and I thought he'd tear up this league.

A combination of injury and others doing well mean it hasn't quite happened, but I wouldn't give up on him just yet.

RIP young man, very tragic. I didn't know him personally but he was clearly well thought of. Always horrible to lose one of our own, thoughts with his family and friends.

Heavy rainfall due late morning / early lunchtime.  If the pitch survives that, we're game on.

I'd push the inspection back to 1-2pm just to make sure the worst has passed over.

While I was firmly in favour of giving this competition a bit of TLC, I think given the circumstances we could be in 'send the kids' territory now.

I'd go one step further and say it's not 'send the kids and hope they get through some rounds for the experience', it's now 'send the kids and hope they lose'.

Going back to the weather, it all depends on how much it dries out today given the weather's going to be good, i.e. sunny with a bit of a breeze and staying above freezing.

There's no heavy rain due from now until then - just a critical 3-4 hours before KO where it looks like there's going to be rain and sleet due.

I'm hopeful they can get this on, but I haven't seen the state of the pitch going into today.

Be careful what you wish for - I'd rather a player with bite (and a disciplinary record) than half the pansies we've had here over the past few years.
14  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Buxton Match Thread on: February 09, 2018, 04:34:03 PM
I think they're setting themselves up for a fall if they declare the game ON at 10am - a lot of rainfall due between then and KO (on top of a frozen pitch overnight).

Can't see the game being on to be honest. Sorry.

Would have happened in the close season anyway given he's not really moved forwards whereas everyone else has.

Good luck to him
