Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Strategic Review Meeting: Coverage
« on: February 27, 2017, 11:12:51 AM »
I understand Mr. Rowley accepted that the appointment of Neil Young was a mistake.

It's a pity he couldn't have admitted this at the start of the season or when Young resigned rather than come out with this rubbish in the programme...

Quote
I would like to put on record my personal thanks to Neil Young for the way he dealt with the situation. I do not regret employing Neil-he was the best candidate available when we advertised the job and he worked tremendously hard to make things work. Unfortunately, things transpired against him with injuries and players not performing to expectations and thus, with dignity, he resigned his post. If, as I was informed that comments on Social Media, to him and his family, were a contributory factor then I think the people involved should hold their heads in shame. The loss of Neil Young(and Liam Watson) is a loss to the game especially when they state that this is the end of their managerial careers. I have not known a harder working "team" for this football club.

The expression "sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me"-may be a nursery rhyme and people will say they agree with it but when the words get personal and are directed at family members as well as the person involved they "DO" hurt. Myself and my family have also come in for the social media treatment in recent days and although I've always said I've got broad shoulders and you've got to take the stick when things go wrong if you're prepared to take the plaudits when things are good, it still does hurt especially when you put a much time, money and energy into this football club as my family do. There's only so much that people can stand before action is taken.
Let's hope that the "supporters" of our Football Club can now regroup and get behind whoever is the given the opportunity to move the club forward. The appointment won't please everyone-I can guarantee that-but once the applications have been appraised and interviews carried out the Board will appoint the person who they believe will bring success back to the club. With your support that job will be made easier.

No Rowley column in the programme and, as far as I could see, no mention of the review? Utterly bizarre. This club's gone to the dogs.

Underwhelmed by Doughty as a coach, generally.

WTF is going on this season.

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

Jackie was a bit of a poacher though I understand.

So we'd probably stick him on the bench for 3 months...

Definitely a poacher Ballers.....and a great finisher. But these days his lack of pace would have blunted him.

You could always stick a speedy full back up front to help him out.

It's a yes from me. He my preferred candidate at time and I can't think of anyone better. However I am bemused by some of his decision i.e. playiplaying 1 up front against piss poor teams. I wasn't there last night so Im only going off match updates but it seems a strange to take Reeves off when we need goals.

Hope he has lined up 2 cbs as soon as possible.

So it's a yes but no as enfatic as it was

He played 2 up front last night - Reeves and Marsh.

Just as a side issue - Wrexham 2 Stamford 3 aet. Oh dear, 'ow sad, never mind ...

Remind me while we dislike Wrexham? I can't think of a reason.

In terms of the ground being tidy I would disagree personally the huge nettles and sheer drop at the away end is an accident waiting to happen

I suppose it's all a matter of time and money though

However I do have to say this club does some amazing community work that we should all be very proud of and the community hall has been a huge improvement

Plus, the Popular Side is turning into a jungle with all the weeds!

WHY DONT YOU DO IT THEN1!!1!11

Altrincham FC First Team / Re: starting point
« on: September 26, 2016, 01:15:21 PM »
Yesterday Pete Hughes mentioned why don't we target the rich and wealthy who use our fairly priced facilities.

This was met with 'rich stay rich' approach.

In my line of work - advertising and marketing - we always embrace the issue or problem. If the logo has to be the centre, fine, we use that as a starting point to make somethinf great.

My point is I feel like instead of looking for excuses why not, lets embrace them as use them as a starting point.

Think the club should get you on board in some capacity as you always come up with great ideas. Not sure why they don't seem to want any help in this regard.

I don't, and won't, use Twitter and Facebook. If folk want info then slap it on the website. There are loads of Social Media applications out there, should we be spending time and money on updating all of those too? No thanks. Stick it on the main site and that's fine. 

Do you know how social media works? It doesn't cost anything.
