His best interview as Altrincham manager, by far.

Needed to be after his teams worst performance

It is with great sadness that Altrincham FC has learned of the death of legendary supporter Kenny Palin who, over his many years of supporting the Club, became well-known to many of our opponents' clubs as well as our own. Kenny passed away at 6.30am this morning in hospital, with his sister in attendance. Despite ill health in recent years Kenny continued to support the Robins

Yesterday was woeful. Utter dross. Arguably at times worse than the football under Harvey Young and Doughty
Phill promised us players would be fighting to wear the shirt. What happened yesterday? 11 bone idle players wandered around the pitch. There was no urgency or spirit.
 
At least with Witton we played with a bit of fight, we were just poor. Yesterday was poor effort and poor football.
They deserve all the credit in the world for Stourbridge but part and parcel of that is getting criticism when playing like a shower of sh*te.

If a team like Buxton or Witton play well and we play with energy, tempo and don't make silly errors, and the team drops points, then whilst it's not good, you can take the odd dropped point.



Wow. The difference being last season yesterdays type performance was the norm, this season that type of performance has been few and far between. Ok, yesterday wasn't good, but I think there was effort, just bloody awful conditions and below par performances (with individual errors) from everybody apart from Max Harrop. Can't believe this team can be compared to the garage under Doughty and Harvey even on a bad day.

Effort wise, it can be. Heads down, no communication yesterday. Only seemed to want have some get up and go after the second went in.

Snork maiden. I can assure you that there was no foul or abusive language. I said that I felt that the short corner routine was often ineffective and for that after the match at Coalville I was told that I was no longer welcome at the ground. PaP has this season insisted on censoring the media including Radio Robins

Where were you when this criticism took place? There's a time and a place for giving this feedback, of it was in a public arena I can understand the shutdown of this.

I'm not sure what censoring you allude to but I can totally understand the manager of the team asking the official radio station not to be overly negative.

Overly negative or banning all negativity?

Odd signing...unless he is going to play centre defence...

Not going to drop moult...hes likely to stick with harrop although many like me would prefer richman?

Bit like the white signing which seems to have unnecesarily unsettled what had been a reliable defence....

Might favour Moult over Jones meaning someone's needed next to Harrop

Anybody who doesn't believe we are a club with the potential to be in the Football League is scared or mislead by the current leaders

24 questions so far.

Keep them coming.
70  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Q&A for The Board and Managers on: March 14, 2018, 05:47:57 PM
Links will be going out on social shortly, but for those unable to make it due to existing Thursday night commitments, please submit questions for the board or manager here: https://app2.sli.do/event/2uirg03l/ask or post a comment below and it can be added to the list.

It works well on mobile, tablets or laptop.

Or simply "like" a question you wish to hear the answer to  Smiley
71  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Meet the Board on: March 13, 2018, 11:33:21 PM
Have also added two questions for the board on www.sli.do

Can anyone confirm if they have agreed to accepting questions via this format?

They agreed, but yet to see anything public.

I think Andrew is implying he can't be arsed... as he would be the one to do it

I was half joking with my response, itís not a question of not being arsed enough to do it - I just donít think itís one to stream live. I may live tweet the PP q & a.

Something to hide, Andrew?

Nothing in the slightest, itís just simple PR. Why would I want to potentially air the clubís dirty laundry on a live broadcast to the general public? If someone feels strongly enough about something then they should be there to ask the board a challenging question, in person.

We've live streamed these before to great success - even at our our lowest point with Matt Doughty.
Not all fans live in close proximity to the ground, can commit to attending the club more than once a week, but may wish to hear Phil or the board.

75  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Meet the Board on: March 12, 2018, 05:29:06 PM
I have put it to the board to use a simple, user friendly website to collate questions in advance and on the night, to be displayed on the projector behind them.

Fans can also "like" a question they also wanted to hear an answer to (to allow it to be moved higher up the pecking order).

This allows people who can't get there to ask questions as well the key important questions to get put ahead of other more mundane ones, like Phil Parkinson's favourite crisps.

The website is free, can be set up minutes and doesn't register any logging in. Let's see if the board are willing to answer all questions or just those simple asked by whoever can hold on to the microphone.
