I asked the question as to the strategy of the club. Is there a consultant brought in ? Who makes the decisions on the playing surface being relaid ?

If you want to know how much pressure he's under, he recently banned the media lads filming training because of ongoing incidents like players walking off, Evatt losing his rag after players don't do as he says, players swanning off leaving early/ being late and generally pissing about....

They're near the bottom because he's not in control. I wouldn't be one bit surprised if they sacked him soon, or some of their "big signings" were released early as they clearly don't like him.

Could we ask Evatt when there will be three consecutive days of no rain, snow or low temperatures?

Leeds have just paid £300k to lay a new pitch

To offer some context, this is probably less than what we paid Craig Davies during his stint with us.

Much better but something needs to be done to the west stand roof in the summer to let that side get some light on it.

If it’s got needle this year, imagine next year’s fixtures if neither team gains promotion in this campaign.

Then again Evatt won’t be there if he doesn’t get them up.

The suppliers of the fibre sand were on furlough too, we only got 20 tonnes instead of the 100 wanted.
I remember trying to get a bag of plaster, it was impossible at times.
Nobody knew if the season would start let alone finish, a tad unfair to blame anyone without the full facts of the situation we were facing.

One development is we do now have some rain covers, and Nigel Clough said we'll have more before Saturday


Which muppet decided to store the covers in front of the advertising hoardings facing the TV cameras. What wrong with putting them in front of the BSS. Try selling advertising which no-one can see.

Whilst on the subject why are we so poor at attracting advertisers on the TV coverage. Most teams have at least one or two national advertisers not connected to the club. Where are Greene King, Amazon and Nottingham Trent University etc

That doesn't address the potential loss of attracting advertisers if you hide adverts. In present times store them on the seats or in front of BBS.
