The World Cup may not be coming home.....but football has come home...to the place that invented it.

The England team has once again reached the semi final of a world cup, a cup they won in 1966, a cup we regularly qualify for and reach the quarters or last 16 at the very least....... they have restored hope and pride to a nation........we were a professional 45 mins of football from reaching a final we had half a chance of winning....
......can't say anything like that about Scotland can we?

Be interesting to see where he ends up....

Hopefully this will led the way clear for a really exciting quality signing that could well make the difference...

Must be lots of out of contract decent players looking for a challenge...

it's a fantastic revamp.

sadly no massive link or info on to how to invest.....

nowhere to order season ticket would have given it a try......early days I hope all criticism is given and viewed as constructive as it's a really positive revamp.

It is clear this board led by the current moribund chairman is more interested in other things than actively seeking investment.....they think an article in the messenger will result in a bank transfer of funds...

Who have they invited to the club for a business day? golf day?....something

yes....on a one or two season trial basis to be reviewed and strictly costed and budgeted....

My hope is that gates will go up and there would be a resultant cup run or two and maybe promotion funding the next two years.....

Our aim this season should be competing for the play offs but the cups are vital to build up a war chest...

By the time we play Belgium we will know who our opponents will be in the last 16

Do we want japan or Columbia?

If we have a preference we may be better off finishing 2nd....

I think we just keep momentum and go for it Vs Belgium...lets face it we could save harry kane and he could get injured in training anyway.

Still liking the PP look about the way England are set up as a squad...

I think we need to get Rashford going and would drop sterling ...

what is the point in having VAR if they let the swiss goal stand and don't give clear and obvious penalties like last night when Kane was rugby wrestled to the floor??

I was really impressed with England apart from our panicked snatched at finishing....and that's the difference when you've got an in form world class striker like Kane who didn't panic just made sure stayed calm and directed the ball calmly into the net....

Hopefully the draw will open up for us and we can get to the semi at which point anything can happen.

I stick by what I said...that was quite like watching Phil Parky's alty with some lovely football, bit of a lack of quality sometimes but lots of quality in the two goals and a keep going attitude against a Tunisian side who make shaw lane look like fair play award winners...

Kane is our Jordan Hulme!!....but JJ is a class above Sterling who for me very disappointingly reverted to the country sterling last night.....as opposed to the club player who we heard now delivers when in position....

All I see is negativity from pukka's posts.....

Not having any shares available has been a major factor over the last 20 years....a period that followed regular battles for control of the club...odd that isn't it?.....also up to a few years ago the club had a very unattractive looking balance sheet.
9  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: World Cup 2018 thread 🏆 on: June 15, 2018, 02:08:23 PM
Ive got Tunisia in the work sweepstake...

Quite optimistic about England...they've got a bit of a PP Alty look about them with lots of cover in all positions and a young no fear outlook......

How dire were Saudi Arabia??....but great finishing under what must be some pressure by the Russians....

Anyone beat this?....some alty fans on a stag do....details on John Laidlar's award winning site

Pukka Pieman as usual delighted to see a lack of investment at the top level of non league football.....shrugs shoulders, no point in having ambitions...may as well give up eh?

1 of 2 things will happen at Gateshead......they will not find an investor capable of taking them forward at full time status so will keep looking but stay as high as they can as a part time sustainable club probably beating Alty at every opportuinity......
or they WILL find another investor, they will go back to full time status, compete at the top of the national league, aim for promotion to the football league, big cup runs and perhaps a trophy final.....

AT LEAST THEY WILL F**KING TRY !!!!!

John maunders came out with a very similar statement...

Typical of an agomaniac to simply shut it down rather than make arrangements to leave the club where it started for the fans..

can you confirm these aren't the tight cling film version?

I thought he was on loan somewhere....

I'll echo the thanks for such a great informative site.

I'll like to add specific thanks and praise for the maintenance of the historic archives of news and information - I had a look through a lot of it over xmas this year and its really good to be able to look back so far - I hope its preserved in some form for the future?
This is an important point, the vast content does need to be preserved

Iím fairly certain the new website is being developed on a new domain, so the old website will be left as-is for people to browse as they please. Almost like a time capsule.

That's ok as long as they domain name is maintained...at which expiry point it disappears doesn't it?
