 :red card:  :farmer: :oldman" Why oh why, all this fuss over the pitch again, money has been ploughed into this and it is better than we had previously. Did we have all this whingeing  when we were winning titles and promotion on the said same pitch.
I agree it's not the best in the league or indeed nowhere near the best,but we only have very limited resources compared to the very big well funded clubs we are competing against.  It is all relevant to income/ funding. Rant over. :oldman" :farmer: :red card:

Of course itís been brought up before, while we were winning promotions.  IC wants to play a certain way.  The way fans and the pundits have bought into.   How many times now has it been said the money has been spent this will sort the pitch out?  More than once.

We have with us a top class coach and he demands a top class playing surface anything less and yes, he is going to complain about it.   Itís the most important things as far as working conditions are concerned.

I would hate to see the Club lose a top class coach because we canít prepare a decent surface.   Remember Simon Clark.  He wasnít bothered about what surface his team played on.

Keep Ďmoaningí IC.

The pitch has improved, but it still lacks the surface a good team would need.  We hear a lot about the way IC likes to play.  With the constant swapping of players forced on the club, it hasnít always been possible to play that way.  Sometimes, however, the selection hasnít helped, having on several occasions been too defensive in personnel, and no flow-link to carry the ball forward into attacking positions, and with enough players to create opportunities.  The result of those set-ups being too many long punts, and hopeful crosses, with people like Adam M and Dale S having to chase hopeless causes, and having no chance of getting the ball.  All IMHO, of course.  But there have been encouraging displays as well.  It will be areal blow if King is not fit, as he is easily our most creative player..  Anyone know why he went off in the Dagenham game ?

So did Stockport and Dagenham and Redbridge play on a different surface than we did? . Its the same surface for both teams on the same pitch for the 90 minutes.

I have come to the conclusion over many years, that it's just unrealistic to expect any pitch in that stadium to be in any sort of condition after about mid November.... doesn't matter what you do to it in terms of prep. ........and what the coach might like......and what is actually possible are two different things.

Should be into a reasonable growing period now but these frosty mornings we have had throughout April havenít helped on that score.
