He also refers to GH as a winger and Alty as amateurs. Other than that...

It’s all a total guess at this stage but mine, for what it’s worth, is that we’ll finish this season sometime in the late summer or autumn, take a short break then play a curtailed season (maybe only playing each team in the league once?) to get us back to normal for the 21/22 season.

Schools are not shut so i dont see how shutting down non-league games makes a difference, it feels like gesture politics.  if the science is against school closures it should also point to this being a waste of time,  I realise that this is a significant issue, but not sure the average non league crowd is much different to going to the pub on a friday night


Quite the opposite really, the football authorities are taking action because the government has decided not to, that the economy is more important than people’s lives. All public gatherings should be stopped now

But aren't the, say, 1500 people who would be attending the York v Alty game just as likely to get infected/infect others doing whatever they choose to do instead? I can see the case for suspending football based on teams being disrupted internally but I can't see any obvious public health benefit.

Isn’t it more about the integrity of the competition, with various clubs having players, staff etc who will need to self-isolate, than about the public health risk of staging matches?

There is an injury update video on Twitter.

It would be good if the club could give the fans some general guidance about when and how often the pitch covers are being used. We did help to pay for them after all. My perception is that, for whatever reason, we have barely used them since we acquired them and they’re beginning to seem like a white elephant.

I doubt there’s anything that could have been done to get the game on tomorrow but saying ‘we can’t use the thing designed to stop water getting on the pitch because of all the water on the pitch’ makes us sound pretty dumb.

Agree that the single biggest thing we could do to improve our defensive record is to sign a really top keeper but I would also love to know if we ever work on defending set pieces in training. I get the sense that PP and NS focus more on what we do with the ball and that's reaped its rewards in many ways. But I just don't feel we're going to get promoted until we can find a way to combine our flowing football with a properly miserly defence. It's all so frustrating - we're so close to a league-winning formula but defending balls into our box was our achilles heel last season and it's exactly the same this season. We have to address it.

At least his red baseball cap hasn't got 'MAGA' written on it:

I wonder if this is only happening if you’re overseas? The Kettering game is the one that comes up when I go to the official Alty site.

Thanks Brian. It would be very odd if the pitch failed the 2.30 inspection but it's anyone's guess whether the match ref will pass it. Into Spennymoor territory here...
11  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Kettering match thread : part 1 on: January 28, 2020, 11:04:32 AM
It wouldn't make much sense for the same local ref to have another look at 2.30 when he's passed it at 10 and the weather forecast is dry. Could well be a different local ref but really hope it will be the match ref, though I guess we'd be lucky if he's available so long before kick-off. Any info the club can find out from Kettering would be a huge help.
12  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Kettering match thread : part 1 on: January 28, 2020, 10:57:54 AM
Could someone at the club establish if the 2.30 inspection will be the final, decisive one and that it will be the match referee making it? Really worried about the possibility of the match ref turning up at 6.30 and calling it off.
13  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Kettering match thread : part 1 on: January 28, 2020, 10:26:08 AM
I see the official site says that the 2.30 inspection will be carried out by the match ref. Can anyone confirm that this is the case? If it is, we should be safe to travel if it passes that one.
14  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Kettering match thread : part 1 on: January 28, 2020, 10:17:33 AM
Kettering's pitch has passed the 10am inspection but they're doing another at 2.30.

Except JL has left Mullarkey and Walker off his list so it's actually 8.
