why do you say that you can not comment on the performance

But then go on with every old excuse under the sun

i was there it was a shambles - end of

Because the overall state of Altrincham FC and our chances for 2012/13 doesn't hinge entirely on what happened yesterday against Brackley, believe it or not.

I hope to God you're just a troll. And in fairness, I think you probably are. But if you genuinely believe what you say in your posts, you're terrifyingly stupid.
Anyone that was there yesterday will understand what I am saying

I know it not easy if you not seeing it for yourself, but if you genuinely believe what you say in your posts, you're terrifyingly stupid.

I wasn't there, so can't comment on the performance itself. Although somewhere between disappointing and woeful seems about right judging by what I've heard. But just on a general point...

In fairness, we've had our landmark defensive signing pull out right before kick off with an injury, we're a central midfielder short after Phelan getting his Everton gig and our main goalscorer from last season is still well behind in terms of getting match fit.

None of those things excuse such a battering on our home turf, of course. But I think writing the season off after a game is a bit silly. A couple of decent signings (even loans if necessary) and some extra time to get everyone fit/develop a proper understanding could see us right near the top challenging.

And obviously this is a make or break year for Sinnott. I'll probably agree that we should get rid if we don't make the playoffs. But let's actually give him the whole season to see what he can do rather than talk about giving him the chop in September if we lose a couple more games.

what was pre season for?

Obviously it's a chance to settle on a team and get players as well-prepared for the season as possible.

Of course, because we live in the real world, things don't often run smoothly. Phelan was thought to be an automatic midfield choice, but ended up leaving at the very end of preseason. Whilst Reeves got barely any match practice after spending most of his time training with Kilmarnock and Donny.

I'm perfectly willing to say it was a bad result and that Sinnott has work to do to sort things out. But there are some extenuating circumstances here.

same old excuses

Its scary we are even considering loans or more recruits so soon i thought that is what closed season was meant for ?

We have to hope its a blip and have the right players

I think we'll have to get a midfielder on loan ASAP after Phelans departure as that was glaringly obvious yesterday. Will probably have to be on loan I would guess.

we need two, Carl Rodgers was the worst player on the pitch

Hyde?

One comment on their forum about the biggest game in their history
"great goal"

And even that (was the only comment) appeared on an old thread about their new signing



Don't even get me started in their stewards

posts on forums don't make clubs tinpot

A for ABJECT

What would you change then VofD?

seriously

The manager and his assistant for starters, and then seek to replace the crap signings he made close season, other than Damian. Find Richman a good Sunday league pub team to play for instead of us.

Damian was a poor as the rest today

Im under the impression here that reeves seems to have complete royalty, based on his performances since hes returned he should be dropped i give him the benefit of being unfit but hes been awful while everyone else gets the stick!

Rubbish, what did reeves do today that was so poor?  Not score?  no pressure then.

It's not about scoring every week but no players exactly can say they were at their best yesterday



Thats what im getting at its not about scoring its about a team playing well, yet theres people who say new signings arnt good enough except damian who also hasnt done much ( and im not talking about goals because i do like are attacking options)the problem came from the back upwards im not blaming him for not scoring thats not what im saying at all, and my comment yesterday may have sounded rash, caught me in a bad mood Cheesy but hes no exception to critisism, the problems lying in the way we setup a slight lack in creativity in supply to the front men.
Its just abit to early for anyone wanting heads to roll i want everyone to stay behind the team and it WILL show on the pitch i believe

Reeves was one of our worst players yesterday

Friendly or not, some of the names they've signed means they will be the team to beat, and there's no way they've cut their budget...

http://m.thestar.co.uk/sport/football/non-league/doncaster-rovers-side-embarrassed-1-4811197

I wouldn't spend to much time fretting about pre season results

Anyway what names have they signed?

Greg Young?

In the absence of Hughesies "Womens Football" area of the forum I'm having to post this on here

The Semi Final at Old Trafford between Canada and USA was just an exceptional game of Football, finishing 4-3 to the USA with the winner being scored in the third minute of stoppage time at the end of the second period of extra time (3-3 at the end of 90 minutes)

A magnificent game, skill, commitment, full blooded challenges, a hat-trick from the captain of the (eventual) losing side

If only the Mens Competition had thrown up a game like this

Put your frock on ATS
Yes I can just imagine, nice dress, with red and yellow trim

Christ, it's like the new f**king John Crewe. Better than he has in past games, in answer to your question.

no, there's only one John Crewe Clicky!
