The only update I want to know is who will be replacing Grahame Rowley as chairman.

3  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Should grahame rowley resign as chairman of altrincham fc on: March 01, 2017, 07:52:05 AM
who would yoy replace grahame with?

Who wouldn't you replace him with?

As football club - we should be judged from the playing side, not how well the books balance or how many people attend yoga in the community hall.

From a footballing perspective we have reached rock bottom and are still sinking. I don't see how the club would be in a lower position if a child had been running the club for the past two years.

I know Grahame has done well at balancing the books and getting the community side together, but this is first and foremost a football club. So maybe let someone who can improve the footballing side of things take over the reins. If Grahame wants to work as part of the community hall then let him be in charge of running that, but he shouldn't be involved with any of the football aspect.

I don't understand why you are paying to go in. Lets say 100 people walk out. Thats 1400 you could have spent on a plane to fly over with a "Rowley Out" banner.

6  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Which team are you most looking forward to visiting next season? on: December 06, 2016, 07:49:40 AM
For me it's Mickleover Sport.

Plus we should take a good following to local games such as Warrington and Nantwich.

It wasn't the CSH that signed John Cyrus, Danny Hattersley and Fabio Bassangue.
It wasn't the CSH that released Gianluca Havern, Tim Deasey and Nicky Clee in the summer.
It wasn't the CSH that failed to pick a stable staring xi with any bottle.
It wasn't the CSH failed to find a system to suit the best poacher this clubs ever had.

As far as I am concerned Neil Young must take responsibility for all of the above.

To suggest that poor decisions from the board are down to them focusing on the CSH is nonsense - they picked (in their minds) the best candidate that applied in the summer, but were wrong. The worrying thing for me is how this board seems to continually pick the wrong man - Tolson, Young and Harvey - all of which have failed to live up to expectations. None of this has anything to do with the board "taking their eyes of the ball" or focusing on the CSH, it's just that they simply make poor choices when it comes to recruiting staff. Personally I think when it comes to employing the next manager, Rowley et. al should take a step back and let someone with a footballing background select the manager.

This season is a write off, but in the long term I am pessimistically optimistic - I'm hoping short term pain, long term gain. The CSH is going to be huge for the club going forward.
It will bring in a decent revenue stream for us to build a solid team for next years evostick promotion - the travelling fans from Marine and Barwell are going to sh*t themselves.

Jim Harvey would be making a killing if he did.

On a separate note, has anyone been betting on alty to lose recently?

Before my time, but Jackie Swindells would be my first pick. His goal scoring record in the mid 60's is phenomenal - 82 goals in his first full season at Alty.

Would love to see him as his peak, playing upfront with Reeves.  Obviously we'd still concede loads of goals but could always win few games 5-4

Squad win bonus for the Blyth match would be the best use of the money as there is 4000 prize money for the winner.

I have never heard of Cheshire league side Rylands, but it sounds like a big waste of 100k

Option 7 is the best, however the sleeves should be red and white stripes just like the shirt. All the options have either plain red or plain white sleeves.

The worst draw would have been FGR away.

i reckon we will scrape a 1-1 draw and do them in the replay at fortress moss lane.
