Thanks Mark.

I'm finding this embargo on releasing footage a bit frustrating. 

Last season the way Mark was getting goals online pretty much the same day helped to continue the buzz from the game, and the full highlights followed within the next 24 hours really kept the interest.

Now, I can barely recall who we played last!

Would the embargo still apply if we had a private members only subscription video service ?

What a complete load of bollocks by Waterson.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

It will never happen in our present state.

What a ridiculous post.

I was curious how far the kids will make me drive this season, so I messed about and plotted the league away games on a google map - I've shared it if anyone wants to take a look.

How are the players getting there - are they on the Ferry out of Liverpool or flying earlier ?

If anyone needs Car Parking in Liverpool for the ferry,

I've just booked at https://uk.secure-a-spot.com/home/carparksearch  in Capital Parking Liverpool - I used to have contract parking there when I worked in the centre for a while so I'm happy its as secure as it could be.

Only cost 5.45 for the whole weekend, but note you need to book sat and sun as 2 full days 0:15 - 23:45, using add day, and then give them a call to merge the booking together as you won't be exiting and reentering sat/sun.

Its pretty close to the ferry terminals.

Hope that helps someone.

A few points:

1) I looked at it from the point of view of a new potential supporter or visitor. Can they find the basic information they need quickly i.e. through one obvious link/click:
- when are the matches?
- how much is it?
- where is it?
- how do I get there?
- what are the facilities?


I agree with this - when I've looked at other away websites - I get frustrated trying to find what I want to know, occasionally on a mobile device.  It would be good to have a very obvious "Visiting Fan" link very prominent with a 1 page with everything you suggest.

Will we be on board for the full duration of the final, though? Can't think of anything worse than getting off in Liverpool and having to rush to find somewhere.

It looks fairly consistent at 2h 45mins,

So depart 3pm, kick off 4pm, arrive 5:45 when I guess its pretty much the end of normal time? 

The return sailing is 7pm so I dont suppose they hang around !

I've emailed to check and had the following back :-

"Thank you for your email,

They do have TVs on board and as far as we are aware they will be showing the football in the bar area. This will be subject to the aerial signal during the crossing.

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?
12  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Talking about investment... on: May 09, 2018, 02:37:04 PM
.....Mr Rowley got his sizeable chunk of shares for nothing (unless someone can show me his investment in the books) so I will ask him, what he and the board asked STAR....why do you neeed more than one share Mr Rowley?



I'm curious - given all the shares were in issue at the time (circa 2002) - which books would this transaction appear in.  The normal share transaction would be person A sells their shareholding to person B, for whatever price both parties agree on, nothing to do with Altrincham FC books at all ?

I'd also challenge the "sizeable chunk" - as at the last return GR having 5% of Altrincham FC ?

Is the route through Glossop and the Woodhead Pass A628 the generally favoured route ?
14  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Buxton - Match Thread on: April 18, 2018, 12:11:34 PM


I would put Moult there and then have Richman and Harrop in centre mid. I love Harrop's passion but would tell him to chill a bit.

I had to turn and look away when I saw Max charging towards their player that got him the yellow card - it was like a slow motion train crash coming !
15  General Category / Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Stourbridge - Match Thread on: April 09, 2018, 09:01:49 AM
Whats the best driving route to Stourbridge - I'm looking at the map and wondering about avoiding the M5 and its traffic problems and coming off at M6 Jct 10, through Wolverhampton and down the A491. 

Has anyone experience of that road enough to tell me not to try it ?
