    So what’s happened there then?
    It’s been played on three times since the begining of December and it’s shocking. Have they been training on it or using it for land-fill perhaps?

    Hopefully not as it will suit their long ball style play better than our on the floor style play. I think the pitch was as bad as our team last night (yes, that bad!!) and it stopped us getting the ball on the ground but why was Bramble giving Notts keeper catching practice during the game? Isn’t that what their goalkeeping coach should be doing at half time!

    Wigan Athletic trained on it during the bad weather. The head groundsman was not amused, and I’m led to believe had heated words with Martinez.

    Well that explains a lot. I heard the same story last night but didn’t quite believe it given the state it’s been in previously around this time of year.
    Still, if you build a stadium on a flood-plain……

    Yep. The name March Green should have been a clue.

    A friend of mine who used to work on the ground staff at Bolton says that if you leave undersoil heating on for too long/continually, then you run the risk of it making the pitch boggy

    Seeing as how teh club issued a statement when the Villa game was called off saying it had been on continuously for however long, this might be a contributing factor

    Then the whole sorry affair will be repeated, with rugby supporters being ultra sensitive of any criticism of their club, you know how it goes.

    It was obvious last night (no excuses by the way) that several players werent able to pick up the ball and move quickly due to the pitch, bobbles everywhere. You would think that for a “passing” team we will stuggle the worse it gets.!

    Don’t be surprised at Premier League sanctions if the deterioration continues. It’s reverting back to bog state.

    Nothing beats Parson’s Meadow, circa 1992.

    Pitch had a constant coating of water, which had fungi in it. We had to move the frogs off before each game! If you stood still, you sunk. Hence my favoured style of ‘kick and rush’ worked well. :lol:

    The DW pitch is DEFINITELY cut out for a direct game, rather than passing.

    Honest opinion? I think we should get one of the G4 artificial pitches, which is as near to grass as you can get.
