How has the thread descended into this?

Taking nothing away from Workington who were the best side we have faced so far, but we beat ourselves last night. After Harrop's superb equaliser we were in the ascendancy, an incredibly soft penalty and red card within two minutes gave us a pretty grim task in even worse condidtions. That rain was unreal.

We showed some of the fight and stomach that won us a point at Nantwich, but Workington were clinical in the second half and punished us when we immediately pushed on for another after equalising. That was a bit naive. Players were acknowledged  at full time for their efforts - we know this is a work in progress. The lack of patience from some posters who weren't even at the game isn't even surprising on here anymore. It's a good job they aren't given a virtual full time reception via the forum, and all of this is coming from someone who gave the lads stick against Stafford.

Saving grace is not many sides around us come the end of the season will pick up points there either. No side is going to run away with this league and we can afford a couple of these results provided we defeat the fodder. Farsley game is huge.

Nice one. Well said.

I'm not sure any Alty fan accepts its ok to be in this league so soon after doing ok in the conf national. I certainly don't. But that result is the sort of thing that will happen in this league. There's no point people bemoaning the state of the club on match threads time and time again. We're still recovering on the pitch and given last season recovering well. Off the pitch we know all about it but wtf has that got to do with Workington away?

The forums gone toxic. No comeraderie amongst the posters on here these days. Every thread ends up with same people taking the same tired approach to shut down any meaningful debate.

Its fair enough to have non-match threads and tear into the board or disagree about the state of the club but surely we can all maintain some effing niceties when discussing a match? Probably not, im wasting my time, this forum is fast becoming a waste of time.

Match highlights...

https://youtu.be/vnTIRLYinVM

Thought Harrop was unlucky to get a red card - can see he was trying to roll his foot over the ball as he turned but the ref obviously just saw studs up.

Not sure what the background music is all about - sounds like Rolf Harris has sneaked in with his stylophone at one point

What's with the guy with the rake at the start, I've heard of forking the pitch, but that's a rake for gathering leaves.

As for the video it's great to get highlights from other clubs at this level, but it makes you realise how professional Alty TV is.

Reading the interview on the main site with PP it looks like he 'rested' Jones.

Didn't go last night so can't comment too much but that seems a bit bizarre

Just watched the 1st half highlights.

What a disgrace that ref was...dens gets assaulted and gets booked for swearing...workington player falls over penalty...50/50 challenge workington player runs in and right hooks alty player harrop sent off.

Utter joke....

Hannigan once again to blame for a goal...

Anyone there know why Jones failed to start?

Sorry to spoil your agenda but despite erroneous reports elsewhere Hannigan was nowhere near the incident for the 1st penalty.

He was though wasn't he.

Just seen the highlights.
I was near the dug outs for the sending off. On the video harrop looked unlucky. In reality though yes a 50/50 but he went in studs up and the Workington lad didn't. No grounds for appeal I'm afraid.
The penalty - at the time thought very harsh. On the video defender was all over the Workington lad better view than I had at the time.  To the letter of the law yes a penalty but how many times do we see that in games when it's waved on?  It's something that really annoys me in games referees need to get tougher they usually never do, in this case he did.

Aside from Real Madrid aren't all teams a work in progress?
