I think it's a great idea to get the fans through the gate and hopefully get them interested in returning when Utd/City aren't playing at other times, at full price.

I don't know how many take up the offer but if we get 10-20 back for other games, it's another 100- 200, plus whatever they may spend whilst in the ground, in the coffers.

If it does become a regular thing, I agree that there has to be some kind of 'reward' for Alty season ticket holders.

If it  becomes too regular, it will be along the lines of a DFS 'sale' and it'll just turn into the norm, which is not what those going week in week out, without the discounted entrance, will want to see.

Great as a promotion, not so great as a regular occurrence.

I don't envy those having to remove/replace the covers endlessly. Must be a painstaking job to take the water from the top of the covers, without getting it on the playing surface, removing them whenever there is opportunity due to a dry period to then have to put them back in time to catch the next downpour!

Starting to get worrying now 4 games to re arrange with the prospect of more to follow unless this weather lets up, the only thing in our favour is that everyone is in the same boat

Should be "everyone is in the same ark"!

Or maybe we should switch our midweek games to Monday or Wednesday's?

Don't let it concern you, you don't attend home games so it shouldn't matter.

Hopefully the game is on and a comfortable home win.

Getting anybody through the door, even if only to use the CSH, will benefit the club whether directly or indirectly.

It will get the name of Altrincham football club and what they can offer out to more people. This in turn could get more people through the turnstiles, spending money on entrance, food, drink etc.

It wasn't ideal hosting the 'yoga' on a match night but if it was already a long-standing prebooking, I'm sure the pros and cons of cancelling it were thought about. It didn't impact negatively on the night from my persepctive and I used the CSH for a drink pre, during and post game. The only negative comments appear to be from those who are choosing to stay away from home games, so didn't actually see the impact it had.

Unlikely, but there's a chance the partners of those doing the class didn't even know there was a game on. They will do now and may keep an eye out for future fixtures, they may even have come along to the game whilst their partner took the class if they were made aware the game was on.

As a part-time, unbankrolled, club every penny counts towards a push back up the league pyramid.

Bit harsh on Moult. Four yellows in twenty eight games playing centre mid isn't bad really.

Just a quick question.

What are the rules in terms of a clean sheet being awarded?

Jones hasn't been given one for last night, although he had gone off prior to any goals being scored against Alty, yet White wasn't given one earlier in the season when he came on as sub in a game where a clean sheet was achieved.

Thanks

Won't it happen for every home game if we go up and subsequently segregate games?

Would it? Why? We segregate the football match, not the bar. The bar is in the home end. Perfectly adequate away fans pub 100 yards from the Chequers End.



When the segregation of games was brought up as an issue, the suggestions by some were to use the divider in the CSH, to accommodate both sets of fans.

I thought, considering what issues we face and the recent weather conditions, it played superbly tonight.

Another three points and another step to, hopefully, the title.

Thanks to all involved; the groundsman, volunteers, those arranging loans of covers and anyone else involved.

Weren't we told that football activities would always come ahead of community activities? Looks like more lies from the board

There was 600 there tonight

I didn't see an excessive queue for the bar at any time and maybe a few had to stand up for a few minutes. Really a disaster?

There's been calls on here for segregation previously for all games. That's how it would be of if we put that into place.

Mountain out of a molehill once again?

For me, the quantity of snow going on the pitch is the concern, not whether it is sticking or not. Whilst it sticking would be a bigger problem, the level of water falling on to an already sodden pitch puts this game in serious doubt in my opinion.

Hopefully it will go ahead but not so keen if the pitch condition is going to be a big hinderence to our playing style.

He does a lot more than given credit for. He's the most gifted footballer in the team, barely gives the ball away and make the team tick. First name on the teamsheet for me.

Hancock in place of Poole?
