At what point do we give it up and move games to Stockport Sports, Hyde or a pitch at the Etihad campus.

Plus points, game on, better surface for our style of play.

Minus points, cost, lower gate.

Given what's at stake I'd do it ASAP.

This is going to cost us in more ways than one.

I worry that the pitch could cost us promotion

That is no criticism of the groundstaff. the only thing to blame is Mother nature

Trafford game on I think. I'd imagine it'd be complicated, but couldn't we arrange something with them short term?

Surely itís worth putting together some kind of contingency plan.

That, and the Witton game going ahead when it never should have done. We will be dealing with the damage for a long time.

It's not just fact games have been postponed (and continue to be) but even when games go ahead it's not an idea surface.

 Looking at the pictures of the pitch on Twitter The Goal at the Golf road End has had it.I thought this was an area that had been covered.

 Agree with everyone else this could cost us Dearly we need a plan B now because looking at the goal area mentioned it is going to take weeks to get it back to any were near playable

 And that is weather dependent which at the moment is not looking to clever

I'd say there's only been two games been played on less than ideal surfaces, Warrington and Witton. The Witton game should never have gone ahead and as a result was a big contributor to the Warrinton game's pitch being poor and I suspect will take some time to recover.

I think this option has to be explored.......looking at the pitch if it had gone on today the next 5 games would have be played on a quagmire....

Long term there needs to be an solution.......I wonder if a trench around the pitch with a drainage channel which is then covered over but can be pumped clear into a mains drain would help?

Otherwise it is a massive raising of the pitch with a pumpable drainage system below....clearly the water table is and will always be from now on too high for the pitch to drain?

The under 17s play at Flixton. That's would do a job, don't think they have a senior team
