Altrincham FC First Team / Re: Alty fan
« on: July 23, 2022, 10:46:00 PM »
Hi all,
I must admit i have not posted on here for a while as i have been concentrating on recovering from heart surgery & also been focusing on my own twitter BUT this has made me really mad...

Now, firstly i have not seen any of what has been apparently posted & am going solely on the above BUT if true it is disgraceful...

I was only singing Erin's praises earlier, but reading things like this makes me angry...

Erin is a young fan and the future of our club... she has had lots to deal with herself & still been able to focus on promoting all things Alty & this includes the Ladies team & womens football in general... she has also recently enjoyed supporting & promoting England's Lionesses in the present Euros tournament (which we could win).

Despite her age, she has a goal of achieving further media aspirations in the journalism side of football (& hopefully with Alty)... she has a great twitter account, been involved in various podcasts, writes articles in the matchday programme, interviewed Alty mgmt & players/staff, today helped with Alty TV commentary, plus still finds time to play football for a team & help groundstaff via forking the pitch at H/T etc... she also won a social media award for her twitter account & was recognised as Alty's Fan of the Year last season... PLUS as start of this topic mentioned she was highlighted on BBC in a Euros game at H/T promoting the club we love...

I could say far far more, but you get the drift... in short Erin is amazing at championing all things Alty both mens, womens, youths, juniors etc as well as womens football in general...

She is a true football fan, living & chasing her dreams!

Erin is the future and i personally see only great things ahead for her...

We need to be celebrating people like Erin & be happy that she is doing all she can to promote the club we all love!

Anyway, i guess i have had my rant... i hate 'trolls' & people trying to knock someone down for doing something they love... if you really support Alty then you support the WHOLE Alty family... womens football will continue to grow & everyone should embrace that fact and support those fans at the forefront of this drive (and all things Alty in general)!

Yes, people are entitled to their own views, but seriously, this is the 21st century but some still need to come out of the dark ages!

To close, i simply say... KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK ERIN!

After the Stockport performance it is clear that 5 at the back does not suit us & seemed to show Parky going for more in defence as we've been on such a poor run... also seemed to show that we obviously have no number9 (even more evident after recent loans out)... in short we need to play our usual formation starting with a back 4...

I'd go with...

Team:

TT

Senior
Mullarkey
Hanningan
Hampson

Moult
Marriott

Kosylo
Pringle
Colclough

Hancock

Subs: Drench, Densmore/Digie, Porter, Furman, Leitch-Smith

NB if Hampson unfit then would start Dens at RB & switch Senior to LB...

Also believe Marriott must start as in form plus why bother getting him if not to be used... also if Mooney fit would start him...

Need to bounce back & show some character after such a poor run (think 1 win in 15 & out of 3 Cup comps)... normally would hope to win at home but in circs would be happy with draw... plus the performance must improve!

COYR!

I'd like Alty to get an 'easy' home draw v lower non lge so can get thru to 1st Rd proper then get money spinning TV game v big EFL club away...

Would like Atherton Colls (if they get passed Marine in replay on Tues)... but probably end up with usual ie either York, Chester, or Stockport...

We should fear no-one way we are playing! :)

Altrincham FC First Team / JORDAN HULME
« on: September 30, 2021, 01:12:27 PM »
Heard from a source (mate at Ashton) that Jordan Hulme will be signing for Ashton Utd on loan this afternoon... not sure how reliable info is but if true should be confirmed eitherway between 2-3pm...

As much as Jordan left us bit in lurch on eve of previous season start (& we've not really filled the striking void since) i wish him well if true... just glad he wont be playing against us!

Personally think it's all irrelevant about whether it was a pen or not or whether it was a red card or not... main issue (like last season) is actually putting the ball in the net...

We should have been out of sight by time of pen with all the chances we created... we could easily have been 3or4 up by time of pen... various people missed chances, but Dinanga had by far the most & on another day could have had a hattrick...

Finding someone who can finish all the chances we create is our main problem area... we can debate whether we persist with Dinanga or give Peers or Leitch-Smith or someone else a chance up top, but this still needs resolving...

It was a frustrating afternoon all round, compounded by the loss of young Connor Kirby to serious injury...

One final thought - really impressed by how welcoming Wealdstone were as a club & by their fans plus all the fundraising they have done for Connor since is amazing!

Assuming the same LBs still injured (Hampson, White, Dens, Fitzpatrick) & with make shift RB Jackson suspended after his late red card assume defence picks itself (if Hannigan fit - heard had bad migraine & was unwell, some say even sick on pitch... hopefully ok)... if Hannigan unfit then Moult could drop into CB & Furman start alongside Pringle...

Assume Pringle comes in for Kirby... then Mooney & Colclough need to start on each side of three behind striker... that leaves no.10 (middle player of 3 behind striker) & no.9 spots in question... does Kosylo still start behind striker or bring Hancock in... then there is the bigger call at no.9 ie stick with Dinanga or bring in either Peers or Leitch-Smith...

I would personally make change, but Parky usually stands by his players longer... also get it that if dropped Dinanga it would hit his confidence & maybe effect him for good then we're again looking for someone to fill problem spot of striker & bag the goals... however, he may also loose confidence if stays in team & continues to not take chances (& he had a few against Wealdstone)... think Parky will start him on Tues but if does not score before 65/70mins can see Peers or Leitch-Smith coming on...

Predicted Team...

                       Thompson
Senior   Mullarkey   Hannigan   Bunney 
                    Moult   Pringle
       Mooney   Hancock   Colclough
                      Leitch-Smith*
*think Parky may stick with Dinanga

Subs- Williams, Furman, Kosylo, Peers, Dinanga

Predicted score: ALTY 2-1 Kings Lynn (Mooney, Colclough)

COYR!

Connor update just been put on Alty website...

Following the serious injury suffered in the second half of yesterday's 1-0 defeat at Wealdstone, Connor Kirby was taken to St.Mary's Hospital in Paddington and has a double compound fracture of his left leg.

Club Director, Neil Faulkner and Football Director, Rob Esteva accompanied Connor to the hospital & his girlfriend arrived at 10pm to be with him.

The 23-year-old midfielder, who has had such a positive start to the season will be operated on today and will be in hospital for 5-7 days.

Everyone at Altrincham Football Club wishes Connor well with his operation and that he is able to make as speedy a recovery as possible from his serious leg injury.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Wealdstone for their help and support in ensuring that Connor, whose birthday was on Friday, received the help he needed.

Our talented medical team of Ryan Murray and Ryan Spencer, who were quick to act as per usual, ensured that the Harrogate Town loanee will get the best possible chance of returning to the pitch as soon as possible.

Further updates will be provided in due course.

CONNOR INJURY UPDATE

I have passed on all Alty & Wealdstone fans best wishes to Connor's mum & she thanks us all...

She confirmed he has fractured tib+fib compound (open) fracture (as Brian Flynn had heard yesterday) & will be having surgery this afternoon...

So, after the Dover comeback win... partly due to the introduction of subs i wonder if some of these subs may force their way into the starting XI (eg Pringle, Leitch-Smith) plus Dean Furman with all his experience will also be pushing to start though more likely will have to be content with a spot on the bench again...

Also the other issue is the problem area of LB caused by injuries to Hampson, White, Dens, Fitzpatrick plus Bunney being dropped to the bench at Dover (unless had slight knock)... if none of these are fit assume Senior will again move from RB to LB & Jackson start at RB (even though more of a winger)...

Then there is the no.10 & striker positions... Mooney (in Lge Team of the Week twice now) & Colclough will surely start on wings/sides of 3 behind striker... that leaves Hancock in no.10 spot (if fit) or Kosylo (who was replaced against Dover) or maybe Leitch-Smith who did well when he came on last match... Dinanga has not done it last two games so maybe a replacement could happen there eg Leitch-Smith or Peers...

Hence lots of questions to address & we are unaware of injury updates (plus we seemed to play better after substitutions as a team v Dover)...

My best guess is the following (in usual 4,2,3,1)...

                          Thompson
Jackson   Mullarkey   Hannigan   Senior
                         Moult   Kirby
          Mooney   Hancock   Colclough
                         Leitch-Smith

Subs- Pringle, Kosylo, Furman, Dinanga, Peers

NB if Hancock unfit then start Kosylo & add Bunney to bench...

Score Prediction: Wealdstone 1-3 ALTY (Mooney, Colclough, Leitch-Smith)

Looking forward to going this game... COYR!

That's ace! Wonderful to re-read that article...

Think i'm going to find some time in coming weeks to revisit the whole 'When we were Kings' series - enjoyed reading the story of that season when published...

Amazing factual account of the superb footy season... 👍

Alty away at Wealdstone in Dec 1979???

APL (Conference) Sat 8th Dec1979
NB Alty on way to APL title & Stones about 15/16th in Lge
Match at Wealdstone old ground of Lower Mead in Harrow

Result: Wealdstone 1-4 Alty (Att: 842)

Two well known players played in the game... one at start of his career & one at end of career...
Ex- Man Utd keeper Alex Stepney (then 37) in goal for Alty & future England LB (78 Eng caps) Stuart Pearce (then 17 or 18) in early game in his Wealdston career before he would go on to make 241 Stones apps & before moving onto Coventry, Forest, etc...

Alty won the game 4-1 thanks to two goals each (i think) from Whitbread & Howard...

Will be happy with any win this Saturday... COYR!

PS always good to look back, bar fact you then realise your age! :) :) :)
