1  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: winning this league on: April 16, 2018, 10:07:55 PM
I am delighted we are winning the league, yes we should be winning this league but we should have had enough about us to stay up last year and that didn't happen.  Hitting a target (especially when it's the best you can do) is grounds for celebration, whatever that target is.  I've only been able to get to a couple of games this season with the increased Northerness of the opposition but I've seen us score more goals in those 2 games (Cool than in two seasons of away games south of Birmingham.  That has made a very pleasant change, no matter what league we are in.

It has also meant that Mark Simpsons invariably cheery tone on radio Robins commentary has been a much better match for my mood than in previous seasons!

On the other topic that has inevitably infiltrated this thread like most others, the thing that genuinely confuses me is the comment from those staying away that no man is bigger than the club - usually in the context of criticising GR clinging to power, but then they are staying away because of his continued role as chairman - thus making this one man bigger than their undoubted love for the club.  I really don't understand the logic.

Just seen the highlights - how did they not get two straight reds in the lat 2 minutes of the highlights, no 5 on Moult was clearly jumping in with both feet, nevermind the timewasting from the keeper

2-0 Alty

My first ever home mid week game after I finally managed to engineer a work trip to the North West on an appropriate date!

Brian,

Can you turn the music down at the end, we can barely here what you are saying about the other scores and the table for the music.

Cheers

Really missed Kenny even more than we thought we would, with no one to remind him to get his subs on PP completely forgot he had any!

RIP Kenny, condolences to friends and family. As everyone else says, great man, very friendly, funny and made you smile. True Alty Legend that will be missed by all parts of the community. Hope the club comes up with a fitting memorial, such as a minutes applause at a home game, winning the title this season.

A unique character deserves a unique tribute.  A minute's Zigger Zagger surely.

He will be missed by all Alty fans

watching the Witton goals right back was not particularly impressive admittedly conditions were terrible but still....

If we play one up front then every one has to have that 'one' - now you have to make a choice and shifting Hancock's position IN THE GAME for the benefit of the game is entirely sensible - good call.

Based down south so only seen one game but at Sutton Coldfield Poole was the only one who didn't impress

His injury record is going to start affecting his price now, maybe it is a good job Sinnot proteted him so much
11  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Absolutely disgraceful on: November 04, 2017, 12:00:09 AM
Absolutely essential that fans are reimbursed by the decision maker here.  It's a fan's gamble if it's at risk due to a replay etc but it wasn't, replays at this level are 10 days later so fans should have been able to plan with certainty.  I'm not one of these fans by the way.  the club could do themselves a favour by pushing really hard and publicly for this, might get a few brownies points back

Ah yes probably STAR, I forgot that particular acronym!  Thanks for clarifying.

Brian,

As I signed up for life membership of SAFE did that transfer so that am I a TASC member too or is that a separate thing?

Cheers

Too far gone for this. People will not come back until the chairman is replaced. Not once a year johnnys, bread and butter long term supporters of this club. I remember when the club was bigger than any individual

but aren't those who hold this attitude exactly the ones who have made this one issue / one individual bigger than the club.  "I'm boycotting the whole club because of one individual - no individual is bigger than the club"  Does that not strike you as a slightly ridiculous statement?
15  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Alty TV. Highlights Altrincham 1-0 Grantham on: September 26, 2017, 10:44:36 PM


(iii) Definite two yellows for Grantham's Hollingsworth - but that was obvious at the time.



I disagree the first was almost certainly a straight red for me, out of control, off his feet studs first into shin, the second wasn't much better!

Great highlights again.
