Has anyone noticed that in the Sunday Mirror's summary of BSP games, Alty are never mentioned unless they played someone up at the top of the league like Wimbledon, Crawley etc.  Absolutely no mention of the great win yesterday - its the same every week... Alty just don't seem to exist in the eyes of some factions of the sporting press. It mildly annoys me every week. Angry Rant over  Cheesy

I'm going to get the NLP in a bit.

I only buy it when we win...so about 8 times a year  Cheesy

Looking forward to Coopers "they were the poorest team we have played..should have been 7-0...etc etc"

I remember watching the DVD of the BSP season review for the 2008/09 season. I worked out that throughout the entire thing, Altrincham's name was mentioned twice, once regarding Cambridge drawing 0-0 against us (on the last day of the season!) and once when showing Michael Welch's goal of the season. The unfortunate truth is that people don't take Altrincham seriously and unless a significant investment is put into the club, they never will.

I'd broadly agree with that.  It's a case of people no longer taking us seriously because of the way the Alliance Premier League has grown over the decades into something scarcely imagined all those years ago & we have not been able to keep pace for the past ten years or so.  To re-establish oursleves as worthy of more coverage we have to go out there and earn it: cup runs, FA tropy runs, giant killings and of course play-off spots and championshsips.  How do we get there?  Money...
