Fine at the moment in Altrincham, though it cut out for a few seconds earlier. Google Chrome if that helps anyone.

Are we to assume that the reserve keeper Williams had also been released?

I believe Young will be watching the reserves this weekend.
wow! This is refreshing

I believe he's going to the beer festival as well?

As a friend pointed out yesterday, would that mean he's been to Altrincham more times on non match days than Sinnott did in 5 years in charge?

Sinnott most certainly never attended any club functions, including the grand opening of the dwl - which was quite frankly disgusting

The one race night I ever attended Lee Sinnott was certainly there.

If you can't be arsed supporting the club in the Conference North you don't deserve to be a part of Conference National and FA Cup experiences. You're more than welcome to f**k it off if you've not the time for it, funny how you'd condemn the club for having the same attitude though.

Harsh. It's a supporting a football club, not raising a child.

I've agreed with very little LofD has posted on this thread, but it's his money and his free time. Presuming he pays his way in and doesn't do something at games to result in being banned, then he can pick which games he wants to go to for any reason he feels like. Lots more people went to the Barnsley game than turned up every week in the Conference North, but I was glad we swelled the attendance, not annoyed there were loads of people there who didn't bother when Workington on a Tuesday night.

I'll be there next season no matter what, but I'm not going to tell others what they should do whether we stay up or not.

In the interests of clarity, this was no manufactured piece, done for appearances' sake. There are often crocodile tears in situations like this, but Shaun contacted me, unprompted, and said he wanted to place on record his thanks for all Lee had done for him. They were genuine, heartfelt sentiments. A shame, then, that they should be derided as drivel.
but it is drivel, and factually incorrect drivel as well

I would rather the club captain focused more on the job at hand to be honest

He's spent a few minutes saying thanks to a manager who's had a big impact on his career. It's not exactly distracting from the job at hand, what would he be doing otherwise?

Lee Sinnott had his knockers at the club, some from day one. I think he has been a very polite and brutally honest manager. And an ambassador for the club in the way he's put himself across. It's a hard job at this club with the constraints you have to work under. We've had four years of attractive football, if not always winning football. He got us promoted. He kept us up comfortably last year. This year the summer transfer business was very poor, and we haven't been at it all season, in mitigation then injury list has been horrific. Ultimately you live and die by results, and thee wins in five months is not good news anywhere. Lee looked a beaten man in his interview after Macc to me, let's hope we can get Red Adair on the phone and put these relegation fires out. Many thanks to lee for his hard work and good luck for the future.

Agreed. It's certainly not all been plain sailing, but thanks for the promotion and the cup scalp. Always seemed like a good bloke too. Best of luck Lee.

"Clubs must be represented by their strongest available team. Youth teams are not acceptable in this
competition. Any Clubs failing to comply with this rule shall be fined not less than 500.00"

Right there in the CSC rules http://www.cheshirefa.com/~/media/countysites/cheshirefa/documents/cups/2015-16/senior-cup/senior-cup-competition-rules-2015-16.ashx

But doubt they'll try to enforce it. Crewe may well open the floodgates.

Seriously though do we actually sell a pint glass? That would be good if it was decent quality.

I've got a commemorative  beer festival one at home which is pretty decent quality.

I'm going with one other if it's on. I'm off work and probably couldn't make a rearranged one, so please let it be on.

Michael Jackson because there's one going cheap in Fulham

It's in the national football museum next to Victoria now.

If it helps the Highways agency says it's only two lanes closed now, so you're in with a chance.

"On the M6 northbound between junctions J15 and J16, there are currently delays of 20 mins caused by congestion due to a multi-vehicle accident closing two lanes at junction J16. Normal traffic conditions expected from 2:30 pm.   "

Some people want to be football managers, some don't. Some are good football managers, some aren't. Some players want to stay in the game when they've finished, some don't. This Rooney rule and this whole debate (in general not your thread) is very troubling. The best man/women for any job should be just that, be they green red back purple blue white whatever. A "quoter" system in anything is division and segregation in itself... A bad workman always blames his tools.

Considering some of the absolute prats (John Carver!) who've been appointed football managers I think it's being a bit generous to say that boards left to their own devices appoint anything like the best man/woman.

Would disagree with a quota (how would that even work when there's only one manager per club), but agree that 25 % player 4 % coach does stand out.

I did try to keep going right through the season, so I'll take that and just tell myself everyone above me did the same. Congrats Bath Alty.

Me and one other driving down.

I assume I'll be able to buy from the ground (Maccs ground) on the day?

Getting a ticket was just a reccomendation to avoid queuing as I understood it?

Yeah, but you've got to go to the ticket office, get one and then take it to the turnstiles, no cash on the turnstiles.
