So we are to believe that Blundell Park today is in a worse condition than Kenilworth Road was when this game took place in January last year

Firstly there is no such thing as cheap sheeting that will cover the pitch, to give you a rough idea a flat sheet which would cover an area 50ft x 80ft would cost around £500, so do the maths on covering a football pitch, you then would have to remove the water on the covers which at present Mike only has the 1 water removal squeeze basic ones cost around £500, try and piture a cricket ground under cover and what is required there totally impractical for football, what is required is investment in drainage,under soil heating and the likes which will not happen whilst we are at BP. Unfortunately in their wisdom the club has continued to cut the budget which the lone groundsman Mike has to spend each year on the pitch and sometimes this can be the result of those overall cuts, however in saying that the rain has been very relentless!!
