4,000 forfeited by today's defeat (and the potential for another 5,000 if we could have beaten Welling on Tuesday).

Very poor.

Will we ever win away again?

Agree, apparently we were comfy and lost it near the end.

Thing is, I know how sh*t Tamworth are having seen them twice. We should be getting turned over by such sh*te.

We have though, so lets just concentrate on staying up whilst they play countless more cup games and replays and then have to play 4 games in a week at the end of the season.

The 4k is irritating but if we stay up again this season then that will be worth more financially than any Trophy run I spose to put a positive slant on it. Didn't go so can't comment on the performance but this away run is getting embarrasing now frankly.

Tamworth are the worst team I have seen at Moss Lane to date this season.

If we had applied ourselves properly in the original game at home, we would have been into the next round and 4,000 better off!

Agrre, the original game on a decent pitch we should have won.

Today's would have been difficult, but it sounds as if we lapsed at the end, similar to last week.

We do need to start winning away occassionaly

It's no good saying it doesn't matter going out of the Trophy if we stay up. There's no guarantee we will stay up! You set out at the beginning to do the best in every competition you enter. If you resign yourself to defeat that easily then why bother.

We weren't resigned to defeat - we started with 4 strikers!!

We need to cut out these late concessions - I am sure the team will learn and GH will no doubt be making his feelings VERY clear to them on that score. Point at Woking and win at Vics and we'll all be laughing again.

Agreed, UC.

Since when have Conference and Trophy form respectively been mutually exclusive?

We might not have won the Trophy....but two victories over Tamworth and Welling at Moss Lane would have netted us 9,000.

Perhaps then we might have even used some money to sign a proper left full back!

My comment on resigning oneself to defeat was directed at fans not players, although I think this is the least inspiring Altrincham team i've seen since I started watching again in 1994.

When will we EVER win a cup tie again? A potential 9000 (plus?) in prize money lost, along with gate receipts. Had we progressed, we would have been one of only 8 Conf.Nat. teams left in the competition. Angry Angry Angry

I see there are alot of people on here who live as near to Tamworth as me who are able to comment straight after the game ?

At the end of the season we'll see what is more important trophy games or playing league games and getting results. I'm sure Tamworth would have swapped todays win with the league defeat ?

It was a VERY poor match and it was a shame for the competition that someone had to go through (as said POOR MATCH). I'm sure Welling will be feeling a 'bye' has been had.

Of course all those that commented so soon will appreciate it was an awful pitch and the wind was swirling as they would have seen it first hand ?

i can really honestly say I feel no anger or upset after the game, I'm totally unarsed. Which is unlike me. Just feels like a pointless friendly game has just been played.

PS; The day was made by the 'scrappy do' impression by the Tamworth fan at the end, wonderful.

PPS: nice to see VofD  makes his 13th post today, been waiting have you Huh?
