Bearing in mind the weather forecast for the next few days Town are facing an horrendous fixture schedule if the elements conspire against us and we happen to beat Gateshead when it eventually gets played.

Jan 17th Barnet (H) called off due to overnight frost and snow
Jan 19th Gateshead FA Trophy (A) called off frozen pitch
Jan 24th Nuneaton postponed due to involvement in trophy
Jan 24th Gateshead FA Trophy (A) called off frozen pitch
Jan 27th Eastleigh (A) postponed due to involvement in trophy
Jan 27th Telford (H)
Feb 3rd Dover postponed due to involvement in trophy
Feb 7th F Green (A) provisional dependant on continued involvement in Trophy
Feb 14th B Rovers (H)
Feb 21 Barnet (A) provisional dependant on continued involvement in Trophy
Feb 28th Braintree (H) provisional dependant on continued involvement in Trophy

If the above doomsday scenario occurs we would have 7 games to rearrange.

Its cold but not freezing over the next few days with no snow forecast so do not see the problem.

It's been the weirdest December/January ever. The number of blank Tuesday nights that have passed, empty Saturdays( though some of those games were shifted tbf), and useless tinpot trophy games.
It's going to lead to the inevitable fixture pile-up and God knows it's made this board tetchy and at times rather unpleasant. Bring back the football!

I don't understand this 'fixture pile up' nonsense. I've never played at a high level but if someone turned around to me and said "You're going to have to play 2 maybe 3 games every week for 3 months and cut down 1 or 2 training sessions, is that ok?"
I'd be buzzing to have loads of games piled up. It's what PH does with the players on the days we haven't got the games. If he cuts physical training down to 1-2 days and has 1 'tactic' day then if anything that can only be a positive surely?

Or alternatively the game will go ahead on Saturday and we'll lose on Monday!

But what will we do if Blundell Park is obliterated by a meteor strike?!? How will we possibly fulfil our fixtures then?

Awaits unlucky alf sketch video from YouTube



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”
