Salford City have signed Aberdeenís main striker for an undisclosed fee and are paying him £4,000 a week! Stupid money for non league football!

The World Cup may not be coming home.....but football has come home...to the place that invented it.

The England team has once again reached the semi final of a world cup, a cup they won in 1966, a cup we regularly qualify for and reach the quarters or last 16 at the very least....... they have restored hope and pride to a nation........we were a professional 45 mins of football from reaching a final we had half a chance of winning....
......can't say anything like that about Scotland can we?

Not from Scotland or a Scotland supporter, but it's hardly comparing like for like is it? England has a population over ten times larger than Scotland. For countries with an established history of playing football, you would expect countries with bigger populations to more regularly appear in finals.

Croatia?

Even iceland have made the past 2 tournaments and there population is a little larger than alty

Iceland's population is seven times larger than Alty's. However, I reckon if we were allowed to pick a team from everyone who lived in Altrincham we'd beat them.

Is that based on the fact that a lot of Premier League footballers have chosen the Altrincham area as their home?  Wink

Main site says Ďnew signingí Sean Miller? Have we signed him on again?

I'll repeat the last bit of what I said again.....

"you would expect countries with bigger populations to more regularly appear in finals.

We are committed to giving our fans what they want from the new website and across all our other services. We know we are not yet offering an equivalent service to the imperious John Laidlar yet, but it is our intent to do so.  And Matchday Updates is certainly part of this. You may recall we have not always been able to offer Matchday Updates for Pre Season Friendlies so please don't be so quick as to write us off.

And please understand the distinction between the platform (the look and feel) and the content (what's on it). We feel we have improved the platform but, again, we have a lot to do to get the content to the same level.

Can I ask for two things - the first being some tolerance from our fans as we grow the content, the second being to make sure we have all your suggestions for umprovement.

The website is provided for all us Alty fans.  We would be stupid to not provide what we need

If it's not broken then don't try and fix it?

There were plenty of things wrong with the old site, most of which have been immediately addressed with this new site. Sure it probably hasnít ticked every single box from the outset - but I donít understand how anyone could see altrinchamfc.com as anything other than an improvement.

I suppose being a bit of a technophobe I wouldnít notice technical issues with the old site. I just know it was very easy to use which for me is the main thing. Iím not a massive one for change and like a good moan but Iím sure Iíll get used to it.

I liked the old site too, however since the excellent John Laidlar was stepping down, it was the right time to introduce a newer and more up to date platform, we must look to the future you know Martin  Cheesy

Fair point Ian,it's not often we agree  Wink

I listened on Radio Robins this afternoon, Ben Elliott is a 17 year old youth team striker who played very well. Max Harrop got the other goal. Sounded good on RR, early days yet but Ben has earned another slot in the friendlies. Could he be the striker we are looking for?

Cheers for the info Steve

I believe we won 3-0 with goals from Harrop and Elliot(2). I'm afraid I have no idea who Elliot is. The result would be on the old website by now so who is meant to be updating the new one? Whoever it is isn't doing it very well!

Why is it that people who make these websites never bother to ask the people who will use it , what they want. 

Because they think they know best.

Itís a pity we seem to have just missed out on Elliot Newby who has only just signed for Chorley last week. Would  have been ideal...

He was always joining his brother at Chorley.

ďAltyís Phil eyes full-time futureĒ (Front cover of NPL)

Who could blame him? Heís young, ambitious, and coming off the back of a successful season. But it wonít be with us, without something dramatic changing.

Foden is right, to an extent. Starting from where we are now, i canít see a way we could make full time football work. I want us to be full time as much as anyone else, but to get there we have to do things in the right order (as well as have the ambition to go full time in the first place...which Iím not sure exists anyway). The first step would be getting rid of The Sports Business, and bringing in a proper company to sell the club for us - if we havenít already? Unfortunately, at the present time, itís clear the current board are more concerned with filling the weekly bonus ball, than going out publicly to find the people they can hand the club over to who would have the resources to sustain full time football.
So, for that reason it would be a Ďnoí vote from me too, until we can eventually progress forward and break free from the status quo.

Parkinson isnít daft either, he will be able to see that for himself too. To me, the NPL interview from the weekend had a little bit of a feel of a man planning his own exit route at the end of next season, once the club is soon unable to keep pace with his (justifiably) lofty personal career ambitions, rather than a man looking to become the first full time Altrincham manager.



The crapís started for season 2018/2019 already. FFS

Bit rude! I thought it was an excellent post but I have noticed that you do try and goad a reaction in several of your posts.

Colleague at work saw my car sticker and told me his brother Mick Moore play for us and Wigan and finished in the USA

Also work with Stu Scheuber who I can remember at Alty

Mick Moore was a striker who I think came through the reserves. I don't think he played too many games.
