And what an excellent name. He sounds like a jazz musician from the 1930s.

Brief highlights now on the feed on our official site. Certainly not a backpass from Moult. Normally it has to be absolutely blatant for referees to give a free kick for that sort of thing, so we were really unlucky there. Brilliant save from Thompson to claw the ball over the bar.

What I assume are the same highlights appear in a feed at the bottom of our official website and are ad-free when I watch them there.

I'd be surprised if Hulme starts against Chester. It's not like he's been in great goalscoring form - Piggott scored more goals on Saturday than Hulme has since mid November.

Hers a link although tedious with adverts.http://www.thenationalleague.org.uk/videos

Those adverts really spoil the highlights so badly. Thank god for Alty TV.

We get the National League highlights at the bottom of the official Alty site and they seem to be advert-free there.

Absolutely appalling.

Our inability to defend balls into our box is a recurrent theme - it seems like we work at it every now and again, then have a game where we do ok at it, then PP says 'see, told you we can defend set-pieces' and then we forget about it again and revert to being dreadful. We barely won a header in our own box in the first half. It's such a basic requirement of football - could we employ a specialist set-piece coach? Our coaching team seems incapable of doing it. It goes without saying that it would help if we had a competent goalie.

The meek and feeble way we seemed to roll over and accept defeat in that first half when things weren't going our way was by far the most concerning thing.

I didn't see what Jordan did to their No. 2 but whatever it was, the guy is an imbecile.

They’ve not won since November... I think we know what that means.

Given it was Borehamwood who tried to charge RR a fee for broadcasting from their ground, we do know they’ve never been fans of tariff-free access.

Is there anything at the club named after Tony Sanders?

I'd be pleased if we'd won our last four games.

Sang was ill on Saturday (along with Ben Harrison). Langley has presumably gone back to Southport, though I've not seen that confirmed.

Even if PP wasn’t that bothered about the Trophy (which I’d find hard to understand), we should have given everything to beat them in the Trophy because it would have been such a help going into these two matches. As it is, they’ve become a bogey team for us and it’s partly with our contrivance.
13  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Stockport (FAT) Match Thread on: December 17, 2018, 09:35:37 AM
The other problem with not having put out our strongest side (which I'm very surprised about) is that Stockport now have a bit of psychological hold over us, which will make the festive double header harder. If we don't get a good return of points from those two games, the team selection on Saturday will go down as a miscalculation.

Yes, I would love to see the club looking for ways to reach out to the hardcore fans that have stopped coming - 'come in for a chat, tell us where you are, what can we do'-type of thing. It would clearly need to be someone other than GR leading this...

I've started going to home games again, when I had said I wouldn't with GR still in charge, purely because my Dad goes and life's too short not to go with him. But the most striking thing about home games now is how many familiar faces are absent. The CSH after matches is like a morgue.

It's glib and ignorant to say to these fans 'you're just cutting your noses off to spite your face' or 'what are you playing at, we're good now!'. The reasons people are staying away are complex and heartfelt and different for different people but with a bit of care and attention, I'm sure a good proportion could be coaxed back.

Seems like a crazy decision. They haven't won for a few games but they're still mid-table and with a gap to the relegation places. Maybe he'd taken them as far as he could but I too expect him to do better in the future than CA.
