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.

"You have 100 or so fans on that open end who would have otherwise been stood with us making some noise."

I don't quite understand this bit. Surely these 100 or so fans have chosen to stand at that end. If they wanted to stand and make some noise with you, that would have been their location of choice?

An extra 10 people singing can make a huge difference. I doubt those who sang during Guisley et al were regulars, but get caught up in the momentum.

I like watching football end on. I don't want segregation for that reason.

If you really want to push the home advantage why don't you do something radical and go and stand next to the away support and out sing them?

Causing aggravation? Last time two sets of fans both sang in the home end fighting ensued.

I wonder at what point on Friday afternoon will the club announce the 5 offer for ST holders of prem clubs.

I think voters should be encouraged to share their reasons.

I notice that Alty FC kitman Steve Foster is currently occupying third position: 

https://altrincham.fantasyclubfootball.co.uk/team-standings

Insider knowledge alert there, surely? Controversial...!


The game was set up from the start to be until December, because we recognised the general trend  that football fans who aren't in the top few in their league lose interest. so we decided to run two seasons, even though this is technically costings us more to run it this way.

Thats just plain stupid, design a football competition that isn't reflective of a full season just to suit those who can't play it and have got bored

Whats the point?

Typical of this club everything set up to suit the losing mentality

Or from a PR point of view design a game that suits the masses  Kiss

Can you remind me what the prizes are for the winners ( top 3? )

An invitation to our Brewery event alongside Mr Parkinson (and potentially his assistant).

We're going to await until the winners have been set before we annouce the date of this event.

Why is the season finishing in December? Bit pointless if it doesnt match the real season

Also why were no point given for the Mossley or Chester games when they were for the Ashton game?

Points were given for Chester, Moseley they should have been.

Our ever-popular Fantasyu Football game is coming to a close with this season finishing on the 26th December.

A new season will begin on Jan 1st.

All current teams will be set to zero. But we'll also be factoring in a few players prices, so be sure to check you can afford the players you've got!

Potentially a plus 1000 gate on Saturday. Neither Manchester side playing, with fans of both sides looking for any excuse not to go to the markets.

Shaw Lane will bring low numbers but please let's not surrender any advantage we have left by letting 50 pisd heads from Barsnley bounce around the Golf Road.

Get it segregated. Get the songs going. Get 300 extra people singing.

As much as Royton Mike wants to meet Shirley and Don from Barnsley, I'm sure he'd rather us win and be top.

WhatsApp says Hulme but John Laidlar says Hancock.

It was hancock. Had a mare trying to juggle work and whatsapp. Full time score went out incorrectly both attempts!
