Wouldn't it have been six games against Fisher that season? Pretty sure the trophy tie was settled at the fourth time of asking. I think that was late 80s.

Do we know if Hampson will be allowed to play?

I saw about 10 people just walk through the gates. Would have put the crowd closer to 400. Not surprised if only 269 paid, including all Alty fans credit where its due

They may have been season ticket holders. There was a group of them ahead of me who walked through the half-open gate rather than the turnstile as apparently that's how it's done at Sutton C.

Fuming. I'd pulled a few strings to arrange that I was working reasonably close to Monday's game. BBC Radio Five Live are having a football special tonight - might send them a few messages telling them of our displeasure...

I look forward to Mark Chapman giving himself a good kicking.

We definitely went top when we won at Leamington in the play-off winning season (13-14).

It would also be great if you could list the subs with the team announcement.

And some fine turns of phrase for Diversity and Inclusion Day.

If you don't want to get your posts deleted play the "argument" rather than the man. I try to get my point on here without being disrespectful to anyone.

I am bemused by the idea that anyone can get behind the team but not the chairman. Who appointed the manager that signed the players? As far as I can see Phil is going to do good things with this squad and as time goes on your stance is going to look out on a limb. I know he AND the board have made some decisions that didn't play out as they expected but so have I. My wife isn't filing for divorce just yet. I agree with the view that Grahame Rowley has no intention of stepping down. Nor would I. 

Regarding trouble at the ground I missed the Barwell game  but wasn't it Leicester fans that caused the trouble? I like the idea of not needing to segregate the fans. It is a relatively recent phenomena. Football managed without segregation for eighty years and no other sport needs it. Shame on us.

I think it was fairly clear from the GR's programme notes etc. that, left to his own devices, he would have appointed Matt Doughty. I believe it was the influence of the new board members that forced a genuine interview process on him.

Phil Parkinson does appear to be a good appointment. But that doesn't alter my view that GR is a disaster of a chairman and him stepping down is vital for the long-term interests of the football club. You can of course disagree with that but I can't see any logical difficulty in that position.

And managing to blame 'us' for the behaviour of drunk Stafford and Leicester fans is quite some leap.

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?

"If I thought it was in the best interests of the football club for me to step aside, then I would...I've got to get them back to where they were."

I'm not sure it is the supporters who have made one individual bigger than the club? The future well-being of this football club should be far more important than one man's personal redemption mission.




Also it says a lot that GR's highest ambition for the club is to leave it no worse off than it was when he took over.

Also about half of the board who appointed Tolson and Young have since stepped down. So effectively what GR is saying is 'people should be giving Neil Faulkner more stick'. Charming.
11  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: "No more infighting" says Grahame on: October 04, 2017, 10:12:11 AM
Surely this has to be the catalyst to revive the Rowley Out campaign? It was suspended so that the share issue/conversion could go through but that's happened now and this article makes it perfectly clear that GR wishes to continue as chairman, however the ownership of the club evolves.

I also think a Rowley Out campaign conducted during a relatively successful season, rather than a disastrously bad one, would be more stark and harder to dismiss.

Did our board member who's in charge of PR at the club approve this?
13  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: "No more infighting" says Grahame on: October 03, 2017, 07:56:51 PM
Good God... What a truly sickening piece of self-serving, self-deluded garbage.

I just wish I could get the unhappy fans back on board again." You can. Resign.

Wow. And that's their highlights. The definition of one-way traffic.

For this game I would like to see Dens right back, if he is fighting fit, with a returning Short who we missed a lot today.  I think Harrison will be injured so Hannigan to partner Jones and I would play Richman, who has been in the top 3 consistent players so far this season. Poole is a different class but maybe start him on the bench and see how we get on.
I agree but I think Short is struggling to clear up the knock he's got.
Is Jones not suspended?

Think it will be the same starting 11 with Moult at cb and  Richman coming in. Poole coming on as and when
As I understand it Jones got a straight red at Shildon rather than a second booking. That I guess means it will be more than one match? Anybody know the regulations? I don't!

 I was under the impression a straight red is a 3 match ban,two yellows

 Is a one match ban,don't quote me though.

Jones's red was, I assume, for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity and I think that comes with a one game ban. It's violent conduct (like Harrop's) that gets a three game ban. So I think Jones will be available for tomorrow.
