I see he scored only goal for Trafford yesterday

A very, very, very dull game, but winning ugly is a skill and we certainly achieved that today. However most of the game was played in our half and Ashton had the majority of the possession.
Against any team with a level of skill the result would be very different.
I think it is centre of midfield where PP will be concerned, we missed Williams for all his hard work, endeavour and possession, the comments about Richman are a little harsh, he hasnít played for a while, but the next few weeks will be tough if we canít sort out the most important area of the team.
I hope the performances improve, I canít watch much more of that.

Won ugly today as they say

Simon very rusty when he came on, but I am a fan of him and he gave the usual 100%

White my MoM just ahead of Max Harrop

Ref inconsistent in first half but fine in second

Ashton looked half decent and 3 nowt did not reflect the game but will take it every week

Good save from TT for the 1 on 1 - but would still like to see Elliot Wynne get a run

Thought he had joined the Vagabonds

Fair assesment other than Moult did his job - poor second half - we could still be playing now and not trouble their keeper any more than the easy time he had after 4pm

Real Ale drinker here.........fine with the Wainwrights and happy to have standard keg cider..............but I won't queue for more than 5 minutes to give someone my money

I have not been as confident we will score when an Alty forward has the ball in a decent position as I am when Hulme gets it since Colin Little left

Maybe, but I think Jordan has some work to do yet to catch Reevesy - many of who's goals came in Conf National.....help needed here from a statto

I wasn't comparing the numbers but the confidence on the ball in good positions, was never as confident with Reeves - his stand out skill was the right place right time snatched finish rather than when he had time to think about it (see penalty record!)

Also for the avoidance of doubt the purpose of the comment was to compliment Jordan not knock the legend that is Reevesy



Yes I see it as you being complimentory as well - Never thought it was intended to knock any of our other strikers and it was me who put DRs name in the frame.

I know what you mean about Jordan being likely to score when in a decent position - it was just that in my opinion, DR who may have missed many a sitter in his time, also got himself into a decent position quite often - hence his record

Two different type of strikers I guess..........goal per game ratio may be something to compare at the end of the season

There is no such thing as a decent pint of Foster's. You'll be looking for a tasty McDonald's next ffs.

First sentence could not be more factually correct. The same can be said for most of the nitro-keg mass produced tasteless lagers (purposely served too cold of course so there no chance of picking up any taste) available in the UK. There are are very few quality draft lagers available - anything good seems to come in a bottle.
In my youth, if you asked for a lager in a pub or a miners welfare, the landlord almost certainly asked you if you wanted it in a "ladies glass"  Wink

Thanks to all who have assisted

What is the best way next week with a late return (midnight)

Told by Mike Ford that Northern Rail on strike next weekend - so tram into Mcr and pendolino
11  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Stockport away on: October 08, 2018, 11:49:10 PM
Is this confirmed as 20th October?

Yes I don't think they really mess around with the games at this point (although I think the chosen 5 Live game goes to lunchtime).

Great one for me, this! 20 mins into Stockport on the bus from my door, and probably head for the Magnet on the A6 - great boozer.

Try the Hope just a bit further up the road towards Mcr...........better than the Magnet IMO.........brews its own Fool Hardy Ales (many different types). Not fussed with the Vic anymore, it is the strange odour that puts me off

Away to any national league prem side would be bad but maybe say Salford or Harrogate might put out a weakened team

Why a weakened side?..... ..FA Cup 1sr round at stake here
13  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: "It was not the result we were looking for" on: September 27, 2018, 11:15:19 PM
Similar nonsense coming out of Hereford it seems (IMO)...........a strategic review by football experts have recommended a change to a Head of Football and a Head Coach, instead of the more traditional Manager / Assistant Manager roles ?
I assume that, just like when big businesses bring in the 'external' experts, they never ever take the view that things are not far wrong and tweaks only are needed !
14  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: BPA at home FA Cup qualifying on: September 24, 2018, 11:21:58 PM
Another home game, is good.
What happens to the takings, are they split?
I believe so.

Yes but then after away teams expenses deducted i.e. coach costs and overnight stays if greater than 'x' miles travel distance involved

I confess

Got some negative comments on here a bit back for slating the new website - but give up on it several weeks ago and deleted from my 'favourites' - only look at the ever excellent JL site now

Luddites are us
