Very good last night. Big focus on Jordan Hulmes desperation to play FT football.

Much much better than the BBC versions. We feature conceding one goal and no more thank goodness.

Just shows how creative we can be with our kits, rather than staying with just red and white block stripes.

Many people prefer just red and white stripes.

I said "block" red and white stripes.

I think it's always great to see pro-club people mock the fans who don't agree with the gospel they spout.

Always good to bring the divided fans together.

Inside job. The powers at be needed to go Christmas shopping. A dark day for the club. When will it end?
Think of your dignity man, I know he's given you a job but last year you were staunchly Rowley out. Now your so far up his arse and his rotten regime, it's cringeworthy to see

Talk about principles Huh

You're well boring and you could have said this to me at any of the three, maybe four away games we've been to together. You use online platforms for a reason.

I've not been given a job in any way, I volunteer my time in the interest of progressing the club.

Despite the situation and context people can actually act constructively, you are completely destructive and need to wobble your head.

In fairness Jamie, to Andrew, heís Pro-club Anti Rowley like a few of us.
A job would implied itís paid, and quite frankly neither of us get paid, and one of us doesnít even get the decency of respect. Andrew and I do spend money to promote the game. So weíre raking a loss of doing it.

However, the club really need to grow some fíing backbone. If Jamie wants to be critical, heís entitled to be.

The club needs to realise after two piss poor years, that people are still expecting faults and mistakes. Therefore do the decent thing:

ē Put a notice ďgame offĒ
- follow it up with the decision of the ref including why heís called off the match and what the club did to activately put the game on.
- finish with mistakes learnt and improvement (we will be launching a fundraising driver for covers or take suggestions on how to get games on)

If youíve done all you can to do so, then the opinions of others making inaccurate comments donít matter

Unfortunately due to criticism, the club have a chip on their shoulder which means they canít accept criticism.

Stop using those bloody sprinklers during Autumn ... it was probably down to this that the ground was more sodden than it could have been.

Players have been losing there footing most of the season since we got them

Maybe the club should look into hiring something such as an Air2G2 machine that aerates the soil down to 10 inches its a similar system that is used by fracking which helps with compaction and assists with drainage. The pitch could be done in a day....

The club donít like technology.
But how much would this cost and what would the benefits be (in laymanís terms)?

Itís time our bucket collections etc had a defined purpose

FOR the record, Nuneaton are equally annoyed and questioning the use of covers in their build up.

No mention of water-based postponements anywhere officially.

No good getting the FA cup to moss lane if you canít get the basic messages out Roll Eyes

If you've a season ticket, entry to their game tonight is just £10 for adults and £5 for kids.

It's a really good opportunity to see a team play on a frozen pitch a team at the top of British Ice Hockey.

It wasn't just down to the snow, which obviously was a contributing factor, but the pitch was waterlogged from the rain over the past few days.

The ball wasn't bouncing an inch at times during the inspection  
Farce the club did nothing to get the game on - what snow what rain theres been hardly any of either

Why weren't the covers used? What happened to the usual call for volunteers?

Another shambles, or maybe be we wanted it off


Years and years of this nonsense, when will it ever end?

This almost tops the one where you said Sinnott called the game off as he could not be arsed driving.

Virtually every game in the region is off, why is it only ours that such stuff is being talked about?



Whilst Jamie is usually over the top with his posts. FC United is on, as is Sale FC game.


I do find it strange we didn't arrange covers for a game that would have been one of biggest gates of the season.

I find it bizarre we only have covers that only cover "parts of the pitch". Winter comes arround annually, you'd think by now we'd have arrange to either fundraise for our own, or enter a deal with LCCC in exchange for free entry for their members when they're needed or something.

How is Heywood Road hosting a game today if the weather's been so poor?

Interesting to see on twitter that shaw lane could have been missing up to 6 key players today.

Workington is ON... as is Atherton.

With no Manchester city or united playing, today could have been an excellent money maker for the club.

I sincerely hope we looked into borrowing covers to get a top of the table clash on. paid or otherwise.

According to Shaw Lane we're doing a pitch inspection at 10am.
