Always a pity to lose players through suspension, but I don’t believe that ANY altered selection would weaken the side, because there are NO bench-warmers in this squad.

I liked Ward before, but I’m disappointed to see Barrows on the bench.  I agree with TonyM that Kelly, Carey, Barrows are every bit as good as those getting selected at present, and with Smith, Fryatt, Smith, McCauley and Ward we’re a bit top heavy now for CHs.  IC May have a job to keep them all happy considering the journeys like today’s, and the probability they could all get in most teams at this level.  Can’t agree that IC can necessarily spot a player better than those using their eyes on the sidelines, because most punters could have told Mourinho that Salah and De Bruyne were players way above his own assessment.  I’d like to think Stan is right about IC’s powers of perception, but we’ll see - he’s certainly doing us proud so far !

Need a win.  Kelly for Hendo and Carey for Clunan.  Then go for it, with the ball, and 9 back without it......

Getting concerned about the attendances.  It’s OK being impressed by the improvement from last season, but the standard of this team deserves a much bigger crowd than what has materialised.  We have the potential to match most of the attendances in the National, never mind the Northern division, but we’re not pulling them in quite as expected.  The Chairman was right to be optimistic about the improvement possible for this club when he took it on, and we surely need to repay his efforts.  A good result at Kidderminster tonight should  help the attendance at the next home game.

Hope you’re lucky, Samsdad, ....  Blue/ Gold/ Shiny white/ white....  that was the era, although we have at least and at last returned to Blue and Gold....

Yes.  Jordan R was top man today.  What a good squad we have, but maybe short of two.....  Have to express disappointment at attendance so far this season.  I appreciate the percentage increase, but this team deserves at least double yesterday’s gate,  The set-up of Manager , team, and Chairman deserve so much more, if we want to maintain and improve on this excellent era.....

Very good game again today.  We were superb in the first half - excellent football worthy of a higher level, although shooting boots not quite there.  Second half Altrincham looked classy and dangerous, befitting the top non-league side they have always been.  Then two fine finishes from Adam M.  Michael G didn’t have a good game today, but he was always involved, and a little unlucky.  Good stuff from all, but I thought Sam K was a bit unlucky to be penalised in injury time which led to their late equaliser.  I’m a big fan of Sam, though, and thought he showed real ability, as usual.  Must say SC’s notes in the programme were entertaining and humorous.

Cliff Jones scored 34 goals in a season for KL, I think I’m right in saying, but was somehow cynically thought to be here to “pick up the money !”......  Seems unlikely, because he had been in the Spurs Double winning team in 1962, and the Welsh World Cup Quarter finalists in 1958 when they lost only 1-0 to Pele’s Brazil !  The Southern Premier was indeed considered to be the top non-league, and many of the clubs have since made the Football League.  The ground was looked on as one of the best non-league in the country, but has sadly not developed like many of its contemporaries.  Big crowd needed against Altrincham who have often been the top non-league club in the country.

Good looking midfield - all mobile and forward thinkers.  Would hope and expect us to dominate with that line-up.  Good luck today to KLFC to build on this excellent season. But get back behind that ball when they have it !

 We don’t need another Central defender.  Loanees block games for regulars.  Ok, we haveFryatt and Smith injured (real pity, in both cases), but we have Barrows, Jones, and McCauley who all look comfortable there...  Barrows was superb last week.  Still only need 2 against Nantwich, though all 3 should be in the team, Jones or Barrows at Right back...But we must try to win this, to add to the building of this excellent season.....

So true, birch....  excellent midfield, both sides.  I’m always pleased to see a mobile and “slippery” midfield instead of all these “Holding” player cliches.  Home and away because while the opponents are holding us off, they’re not attacking so often in our half.  We also need Clunan’s alertness in the mix as well.  We have such a good mix in midfield, including those taking a turn on the bench.

Enjoyed Westlynn’s post, but don’t agree that no other real chances in the first half.  We could have gone in at ht 3-0 up if Adam M and Rory Mc had been luckier with their two efforts that just cleared the bar and the far post respectively.

Good post, Westlandallstar....  there’s always a danger that a small number of idiots can spoil the whole show.  Of course injury is the big danger, but there is also the worry of points deductions, even “closed doors” penalties.  We have to stay right on top of this nonsense, especially as attendances increase.

Dazza spot on to give SC due congratulations.  Wonderful job and progress so far.  Such a good performance yesterday and could have had it won by half-time.  One thing, I don’t understand these football cliches like “Long ball team”, “physical team”, ...  None of the teams that have visited the Walks have put “physicality” above skill.  Chester proved that it’s only a cliche that they are one of those teams, for example, because they showed they are a very good side indeed, especially in the second half, and our team can be so proud of the equal part they played in such an excellent game.  If our crowd continues to increase, as it certainly should, we may be in for a very special season indeed.

Unfortunately we are, at the moment, too small for the next level.  We are small in facilities and small in off-field finances and organisation.  Where we can compete, if our league challenge is maintained, is attendance potential.  It is decent, though disappointing, improvement this season, but as we have seen in modern era “big” games, from Nuneaton, through Oldham, to Slough, the club is more than capable of pulling in crowds that can compete well with even the big full-time clubs in top division of the national league.  And I remain convinced that the 120,000 or so in surrounding area villages are a big advantage to us that at present is untapped, but could well be a source of real attendance improvement if the club can keep improving.  Here’s to a large crowd vs Chester, and a well-behaved one !
