Actually, it doesn’t look that bad. Some of you will remember it being a lot worse in the 70s and 80s. It’s got some bad patches but it’s not that bad.

Mainly under the management of Brian Clough as well.
Probably another thing young Nigel picked up from his dad and another small part of his master plan to take us to eventual glory :D

So what’s the chances of next Wednesday’s game being postponed?

Can’t they switch it to field mill? Or even ask Rochdale to borrow their ground rules permitting.

I think switching grounds is only going to be happening in the FA Cup at this stage.

Given their away form I think they'd be pushing for a switch

If the pitch is in a poor state the forcast won't help.

Whereas it's obviously dubious at this stage they've forecast it to start raining in oldham at noon on Monday and not stop until 6am Thursday morning :shock: :lol:
