I also suspect our contract wonít include bottle bars and other areas of the ground

Mainly because the snack bars were t permitted to sell alcohol when the contract is signed and package and draft contracts are usually separate entities (even if there is cross over between the two)

Our first phone call when the contract is up for tender should be to Heineken. So many brands in their portfolio including the aptly branded red stripe, who Iím sure could be convinced to do some pretty slick activations

Itís a pretty poor contract weíve signed for it to last this long - CSH funding or no CSH funding

Itís got nothing to do with numbers

Chester causes a gain amount of aggro with a handful a few years back

Somethings will never change

I really canít believe the bullsh*t that is being written about a bit of paint. Is it April Foolsí Day?

The issue isn't wish the paint but the choice of wording. Nobody seems to have an issue with the other side that says ALTY.

It's clearly a publicity stunt, but it needs painting over again asap.

Maybe the sports business have finally decided to do something?

Maybe we can change it to FORSALE after our 1-0 defeat on Saturday  Roll Eyes

An informative update....thanks

Just one constructive response;

While I agree the new website is a much needed modern looking platform and understand it is a work in progress advice to use a different browser is unlikely to be taken up......if I can't see a browser in my preferred browser I'm not going to open up google chrome which I hate ( or firefox which I thought was a sonic the hedgehog character)  specially to look at one website...even if it's Alty's official website...

I look forward excitedly to the chairman's update on how the marketing of the share investment is going...

Do you think their might be a possibility that the new directors have bought shares in the club?

They did, however not all of them.

I await Rob updating us on the plan to sell them

Burton were fortuitous enough to have a massive cup run, shortly followed by another great one - and reinvested the money into developing assets that will generate long term, reliable income. That's what we're looking to do, with or without the cup run.

Perhaps some of that generated income should be spent on fan retention, potential to build a fan base rather than continually replace those that leave

Played like the player we should have never let go today.

Absolutely outstanding in the middle apart from a needless yellow card

The two new lads (Dale and Wynne) were also superb - Dale could have rivalled Simon richman for energy and Whmne made two outstanding saves to keep his clean sheet

However they were very poor, but that performance should and usually would beat most sides at this level.

The finishing was poor but extremely promising to see us routinely pull the trigger even if the shots were weak,

A very pleasing afternoon in North East

Sinnott syndrome strikes again... fear we maybe in for a mediocre season unless we adapt.

Perhaps StatsZone can tell us our passing accuracy (I suspect it's under 10%).

Parkinson's worst performance. One of the poorest showings I've seen in a long while at Moss Lane. No confidence, barely any football either.

Five points dropped this week against one average side and a team who in the bottom three

Could and should be second in the league.

Very disappointed

Very pleased to see this come to life. The initial lead came via Altrincham social, but credit to Mr Looney for taking it from a minor deal to a substantional relationship.

It's great to see the clubs social media start generating funds

I don't really understand why people are getting so steamed up about Salford. We never had much to do with them before and never will much in the future. Let's leave worrying about them until we have to play in the same division again.

Because Alty fans must have at least one other club to whine about. Shaw Lane last season.

Just let them get on with it.

Get off that high horse mate, you weren't keen on Shaw Lane.

I don't like Salford, not because they have money, but because we don't have that spending power (on and off the pitch). We don't have the infrastructure they've built up either. They've done it in a very strong way, similar to fleetwood.

They've built on and off the pitch in equal measure.

Were any IOM players sufficiently good enough to warrant Phil taking an interest in future?

I donít think so, although apparently 5/6 of their regulars were away on holiday.

Iíd like to think this fixture could become the traditional curtain raiser

They were substantially poorer than what I expected. But a lovely ground, very welcoming fans.

Just a shame no bar or food, soon remedied by letting us stock up cans and food from the shop
