If you're going by train take the next station up called Apsley as this is a 5 minute walk from the ground.
Kings Langley station  itself is right at the other end of town.

A few pictures of the ground - it looks grim in the summer so God knows what it'll be like tomorrow, especially if it's ****ing it down!!

(See you all there!!)

Yea right Mall no one has ploughed anything in, all figures and no facts, all we hear is costs and expenditure, never income! the biggest invester is the council and fans, council money was never decleared as to how and who spent the reported 150k plus.

After we grabbed the equaliser, we were all over them and a win wouldn't have been undeserved.

I thought McWilliams was excellent today - scored, bossed the midfield, constantly demanded the ball and was a credit with his never say die attitude.

Ground was rubbish, pitch was rubbish, burger in the ground was rubbish, chips from the Kings Langley chippy were rubbish.

Good point though.....and for the record, Setch was pretty quiet today and looked fed up at the end.

That isn't a dig at Setch, it's just an observation.

Our losses to games ratio is currently lower than for the whole of last season. It's all those drawn games that have cost us ( I know everyone knows this) but to me that shows that we are not far away from being a play off challenging side. It's the failure of the side to get the best out of Mettam that's cost us. You could argue that's a management failure. Mettam generally got very little in the way of decent service in the games that I saw. How many times did Stevo put him in for example. One ego preventing another ego from stealing the limelight?

Probably sums up our season. We showed resilience once again away from home (it used to be said that draw away and win your home games = a title winning formula?) and could have won if we were more clinical in front of goal?

Talking of poor pitches. What would the cost be for a 3G at the walks?

And how long would it take for one to be installed?

" Depending on the specific dimensions involved, as well as the type of absorbing base required, fitting an artificial pitch in England can cost anything between £300,000 and £500,000."

The surface usually lasts around ten years, depending on the amount of use.

Apparently Sutton's pitch took around six weeks to install.
