Non Altrincham FC Talk / Condate Alty is now Ukrainian Alty
« on: March 22, 2022, 11:58:57 PM »
My wife is Ukrainian and consequently my 17 year old son and 13 year old daughter are both as much Ukrainian as they are British.  My wife comes from a rural area close to the Russian border in what was Luhansk Oblast (Luhansk City Region).  We last visited my In-laws and my wife's eldest sister who still live there in 2012.  We would have gone again since but Russia invaded Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk in 2014 and annexed these areas declaring Crimea to be a part of Russia and the two cities and the immediate area around then to be 'Independent Republics'.  The area where my In-laws live was not seized at that time and so was placed under the administration of another Ukrainian region where it remained until February 24th 2022.
Russian tanks took the area within the first few hours of the invasion and replaced the Ukrainian flag with a Russian one before moving on towards Kharkiv.  The locals have restored their flag but as the conflict has gone on they have lost their phone signal and the food shops are almost empty. They still have an internet connection of sorts so my wife is still in contact with them.  There is no way out for them and even if there was they are not well enough to trek half way across Europe.  They have livestock (a cow, chickens, and turkeys) and lots of stored preserved fruit and vegetables and so we are confident that they will be OK.
My wife has told me that her sister who is a teacher of Ukrainian History has now been told to sign a contract stating that she will no longer teach the history of Ukraine and she must now teach Russian History (as it is defined by them).  Lessons are to be conducted in Russian language.

About 15 years ago I bought the cottage next door to my In-Laws.  I now need a Russian visa to go there !!!  I am happy to answer any questions that anyone has.

Altrincham FC First Team / Team Colours

What a wonderful result that is.  I have been unable to attend many games recently due to diminishing health but I saw tonight's game and was able to spend the first half on the GR before retiring to the main stand for the rest of the game.  I was pleased that Alty chose to wear the national colours of Ukraine tonight and I have elaborated more on the Non Altrincham FC Category.

Can at least one of you have the mettle to give us a summary of :-

What event happened that has led to the indefinite shutdown of over half the spectator areas?

Exactly what needs to be done essentially to satisfy TBC?

Do we have ANY funds available to pay for the work?

If we pay for the improvements will it leave us in a precarious position with regard to paying player and staff wages and other monthly bills?

Frankly, how bad is it?

The fans at Alty are special and we want to help but you need to be honest with us and sooner rather than later!

For and on behalf of all Alty fans and supporters everywhere.

PS.  When the end was nigh for Macclesfield Town they stopped communicating with their fans.  Lets not go there please.


Altrincham FC First Team / Poll: Where will Altrincham finish?
« on: October 11, 2021, 03:05:21 PM »
I think that it will be interesting to see how supporters are feeling about our prospects after a great start to the season.  In the previous poll conducted by Hugh on 16 August there were a total of 57 respondents and only 3 (a measly 5.3%) said that we would finish in the top 7.

I, myself voted for 12th - 14th, but I am now optimistic enough to go for 2nd or 3rd.  I think that Grimsby or Chesterfield will probably win the title.

Altrincham FC First Team / New/Returning Fans Watch

I stood on the Golf Road on Tuesday and began to chat to two lads who it transpired were students at Salford University.  They had heard about Alty's brand of attractive football and had decided to come and see it for themselves.  One of them was a Bath City fan and the other guy followed AFC Wimbledon.

They joined in with the singing and chanting and celebrated the goals with the rest of us.  I think that the momentum is growing all the time now and we are heading in a very positive direction.

We need to spread the word and encourage lapsed supporters and those yet to be baptised into the Alty family to join us on what I anticipate will be a wonderful journey.

...Oh, Yes,sir its that Mooney...

According to their forum they have already sold 400 tickets for the game at Alty.

Altrincham FC First Team / Wealdstone - Top Club!
« on: September 20, 2021, 07:03:26 PM »
I feel it can not be allowed to pass by on this forum without being mentioned.  I am sure that all Alty fans are as impressed as I am at the efforts of Wealdstone supporters who raised over £1400 for Connor Kirby at the weekend

Well done.  An impressive action by all involved.

Altrincham FC First Team / Is this a figment of my imagination?
« on: May 06, 2020, 05:29:44 PM »
Iím not sure if I imagined this or it was a dream or something.  I have lucid memories of my dad taking me to watch Alty play at the Drill Field back in the early to mid-seventies on a damp, cold and misty mid-week evening.  I think that it may have been an NPL Cup tie and it was around this time that Alty seemed to be jinxed every time they played Vics, losing by the odd goal or getting a draw if we were lucky.
Anyway, one of the things I remember is that during the game a diesel locomotive hauling about 30 empty coal wagons came to a halt on the railway viaduct behind the ground and it sat there with the pulsating sound of the idling engine filling the air for the best part of the game.  Additionally, every now and again the train would edge forward a little and the empty wagons would all clank very loudly in a domino effect jolting every wagon from the first wagon to the back one (for anyone interested the loco looked like a Class 25).
So, back to the game, and the pitch was in a dreadful state, there was barely a blade of grass to be seen, just lots of mud, but this seemed to suit Alty and we raced into a 3 or 4 goal lead before half time.  Even more goals came in the second half and we were about 6-1 up when we all noticed that we could still hear the loco but the train was now shrouded in a thick blanket of fog.  Inevitably the fog engulfed the ground, the train was heard to depart and the referee abandoned the game after about 75-80 minutes with Alty thrashing Vics about 8-1.
The game was replayed and Vics won 1-0.  Does anyone else remember this happening?
