Boo'ed off on Tuesday. Turned up today.

That's the PHILLosophy I want to buy in to.

Class from start to finish (even if they surrendered at 4.nil)

I agree with a lot of what he said, but if he thinks Johnson was a threat all evening one of us needs glasses.

And being the better side in the first half...

You can have as many plans as you like, but if your best striker manages to get himself suspended for 1/5 of the season you're going to be at a considerable disadvantage. It's not the only factor, but it is a big one.

We were poor before missing Jordan. We've also failed to replace Jordan.

Two up top might help out a bit.

Bringing in Cisse, Piggott the lad from. Curzon and Barrow can't have been cheap. So the money could have gone in bringing a striker from the league below on a more permenant deal.

The chairman has resigned and bailiffs were at the game on Saturday.

140k owed

...can we now agree that 'going big' on the shirt was, in fact, the right idea?

I maintain it would have still had the same coverage had the shirt been slightly tweaked. But my biggest gripe will always be the launch.

We were classified as Viral due to providing decent content by the press association

I was unable to attend the shirt auction after the game yesterday...can anyone who was there please inform us how much was raised? Thanks

The average price was 100 for the shirts that were available. I heard the remaining online shirts were going for far more.

The bottom line is that we were a very dangerous opposition, before Owen Dale returned to Crewe to be an unused sub and Jordan Hulme needlessly got himself sent off a few times. Now, we are a midtable team. Harsh but true.

I agree

The defence played well richman was completely bypassed in midfield max was innefective....

anyone who said clee would be a backward step and doesn't think he would have improved our side is just being stubborn.

Agreed. Clee was brilliant all game. Such an intelligent and strong player.

I would defo look into it.

Havern is still quality aswell.



He was a passenger in the previous 3 games

Bill Waterson and Jonny Keen both appeared on BBC Breakfast this morning and its on BBC Iplayer. 1h25 minutes in or 7:25-7:30am if you use the clock in the corner screen.

It's a horrible kit and no amount of coverage is going to win me and others over to it, unfortunately. I still firmly believe the same reach could have been achieved with a more considered design and a thought out launch. Got to mention this quote from Bill in today's Telegraph:

"It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing of kits but that’s not the point - We’re not making a fashion statement, we’re making a statement of belief.” A subtle acceptance spun into a really positive statement about what we're doing. Good work indeed.

Full article: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/02/15/altrincham-prepare-make-history-wearing-lgbt-rainbow-kit-would/

I echo Andrew's sentiments here. The launch has been haphazard.

However, really good quote in Sky Sports - "My feeling is, if there are people who like what we're doing and want to be a part of this, then we would welcome additional investment - of manpower, brainpower, and of funds, and we have shares for sale. People coming and investing in the club off the back of this, and contributing, would be a great thing for us." - Bill Waterson.

I would have hoped for mor,e but atleast a mention of investment is a nice change.

Unbelievable!

Nit picking I think they call it.

Perhaps our Kit Manafacturer or Diversity Team could have featured instead?

Nepotism? If you're referring to AJ, that's an unfair and completely wrong accusation, Cult. I liaised with Chris Hall over coverage, and he said he would like to film the kit being laid out in the home changing room and also interview the chairman. After doing all that, Chris said 'I don't suppose there'd be a player available, would there?' AJ happened to be on hand because of the community work he does, and he was good enough to step before the camera. There were no other players around. In much the same way, the subsequent interview with John Skelhorn was an afterthought by Chris. Nepotism never came into it.

I do think if there was a plan of ITV coming to film - however short notice - ot of a squad of 20 a players likely to wear the kit on the day may have been better to invite down.

Someone on twitter said Piggott was motm , how did Drench play ?

A superb save at 1 nil and could do nothing about the goal

Best wishes for a quick recovery Ben
