This was inevitable. Sadly, he didn’t quite make it with us but good luck to him in the future.

Not unexpected...but we now have to get half a season into just three months...even assuming no more games are postponed!

Anyone know when a pitch inspection is likely?  Presumably there’s one later today?

Yet another postponement coming up for sure. Let’s hope the break helps the players rest and they come back for the second half of the season really fired up to take this League by storm.

Fair enough…. I may be being a little pessimistic but we have to improve our away form now but Fylde have momentum and seem to be able to pull out results when we struggle - look at how many late goals they get!  Anyway, I hope I’m wrong and we do succeed. Fingers crossed big time!!

If Tuesday night’s game goes ahead then, after today, it has become something of a ‘must win’. AFC Fylde are on a roll and unless we can disturb that I’m not sure who can. A draw wouldn’t be the end of the world but lookimg at what they have left, they have the easier second half to the season.

This is non-sensical. If we are genuinely serious about competing at this level (or above) then appropriate covers or whatever other system might be best-employed to deal with adverse weather must be a good business investment. Climate change is going to mean potentially colder winters but notwithstanding that the present conditions are not exceptional for this time of year. If previous covers have disappeared somehow or for some reason then we should now forget about those (regrettable as that may be) and focus on the future. There seems little point in going full-time on the field if we don’t mirror that investment off the field. I know it’s easy to be critical and I don’t want to simply sound off…. A positive, constructive and maybe innovative way forward has to be sorted, and sooner rather than later. Who knows, we could have further frozen pitches in the coming weeks and then have unprecedented fixture congestion?

If there are, indeed, covers then what the heck is the problem?!  Are we serious about progressing?  If they’re not used then a big disservice is being done to both the players and supporters.

That’s crazy…after warning forecasts and reassurances during the day to postpone at the last minute is unacceptable to all involved - home fans included.

Too defensive is certainly no good. We’re top of the League and need to be positive. If we then lose, at least we will have tried but if we’re negative and lose then we have only ourselves to blame. Let’s make a statement to other teams and show how good we really are…

Thanks for the update. If it goes ahead then lets hope we get a point. Three would, in all honesty, be something of a surprise but then I also think we’re due a performance and good win so maybe…just maybe…?

What chance this is postponed due to a frozen pitch?  Forecast doesn’t look good.

73
Well said John, I’m sure you’re right. It may well be close and I worry a bit more about home games even if that’s not entirely logical. An emphatic performance and win would be reassuring and, I think, give the lads some renewed confidence. Fingers crossed. Happy new year everyone.

74
Nothing is guaranteed (otherwise we wouldn’t have lost to Farsley Celtic or Kettering) but you’d think we could beat Boston Utd so you’d hope the game went ahead as three more points would put pressure on other teams. Another game in hand doesn’t help.

Disappointing but maybe a blessing in the context of the whole season?  We need to focus on the League and too many cup games might lead to further injuries and fixture congestion.
