The state of our pitch will be the biggest threat to our hopes, I think on football ability we are very good.

Cheaper via Crewe and Smethwick GB, looking forward using a Parry People Mover for the first time

Got sent the video of that before, looks like Chester Zoo monorail.

the wildlife is worse round here  Wink

A good result on a cold afternoon.

the ref was annoyingly significant with his petty lectures which constantly interrupted the game.

the linesman on the side opposite the dugouts was a fkn disaster in black who thought it a good idea to either be 5 yds behind or 5 yds in front of the last defender.

It was good to hear the Alty fans give the Stafford fans a belated response to their opening day rant about us going down like a lead balloon.

Jordon Hulme was quality yet again and a special mention to TT for some very good saves.

Onwards and upwards

no frost forecast between now and kick off I expect it will depend on how wet the pitch is

There is no doubt the surface does/will effect the style of play that PP likes to play and no slight on the ground staff whatsoever but I would love to see a concerted effort at the season end to rectifying the problem once and for all. perhaps a brainstorming meeting with the likes of the council and if possible a rep from MUFC (as I think there under 18s use it) and whoever else to sort the drainage problem once and for all.

I do think it would probably entail a fair bit of work though.



Haven't we already been down that route though?

Fair comment, perhaps there is a problem/ blockage somewhere in the system.

Didn't make it today but plenty of positive comments on here.

If the fans are feeling good then I'm sure the lads playing will be feeling just the same.

Well done to PP and his staff

Keep going Alty

lets not berate the steward for carrying out his duties, he has been Stewarding at moss lane for years, I stand on the popular side and have done for years. I have witnessed numerous incidents over the years where David Birch has had a go at both home and visiting fans swearing at people in an aggressive manner. both female and male fans.
In my view he deserves banning, due to his antagonistic attitude. I for one will be glad to see the back of him.
10  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Witton Match Thread on: January 01, 2018, 08:00:36 PM
I thought both the Birch brothers were banned ?

just Dennis is currently banned, as far as I'm aware
11  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Ejected from the ground on: January 01, 2018, 07:58:03 PM
No arguing with that, why let him in then?

that was Dennis, his brother who was banned for racial abuse
today it was David , his brother who was ejected. it isn't the first time he has been abusive, the Steward did ok considering David was attempting to hit him at one point.

There were a number of obvious problems today.

We changed a winning team....it may work in the Premier League, but not at this level.

The pitch was awful...same for both teams, but we made no allowances, especially passing backwards and forwards across our penalty area.

We over elaborated at the other end far too often.

We failed to make substitutions early. Hannigan for Jones most obviously.

On the upside, the pitch now has nearly 4 weeks to recover.

I only felt Thompson could have done better with the third. Generally I'm happy with him.

good post Phil. very much my thoughts.

FOOTNOTE.... David Birch ejected from the ground for hostile abuse to some decent Witton fans stood by me. The bloke needs banning he was physically aggressive with the Stewards...

The bloke gives Alty FC a bad name. Yes I expect the guy has problems but this was unacceptable...
