How boring would the video be though... Just like watching grass grow

A bit like some games last season and most of the Chairmans notes in the programme? :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Curiously enough, they went on believing this even after

Went past the ground tonight through the Walks and there were hundreds of pigeons on the pitch feasting on the seed, would he surprised if there would he any left to grow.

Were the pigeons delivering the white stuff to mark out the pitch? There shouldn't be a problem with players such as HAWKIns to keep the pigeons away. Will there be tin hats available for supporters when they start nesting in the stands. Also, the refreshment menu could be interesting next season.
Watch out for any freezers arriving at the ground.

Went passed the walks today looking good heavy watering going on but the wood pigeons were enjoying the seed hope they put a lot on

I thought the pitch was drilled for the seed to be planted?
Those pigeons must have longer beaks than the ones I see...

looks like the pitch is being done somehow,but touchlines are not? What if we get a ref who clls off a game at the last minute due to the touchlines being unplayable? :dontknow:

Aren''t the touch lines done just before a game is played?

I think they are talking about the grass at the side of the pitch where the lino runs up and down.

It has been said the pitch will be narrowed, which will hopefully alleviate the problem.

That seems illogical if we are planning 'passing football'.......It was narrowed a while ago.

Went past the ground today and stopped to get a look at the pitch and definitely plenty of fat pigeons perhaps we will be served pigeon pies next season  :laughcry: :laughcry: but on a serious note doesn't look like much done to the pitch apart from sand ,seeded and possibly some soil 🙄 Perhaps the other options are still on the table  :dontknow:
