With all this rain falling and continuing throughout today, the game must be under threat, plus there is the threat of the rain turning to snow through the night. The forecast looks a bit grim.

Yeah I can't see this one going ahead.

Looks like the ground is well saturated and with rain all day to come, and rain/snow overnight, I can't see how it will drain in time. Even with a cover of snow I'd be surprised if it's not like a bog underneath.

Standing on the grass bank or in the stands, might be the only bit above the water line. :lol:

Any use putting the covers on or is it too late? Maybe we could swap to Spennymoor?

Surprised the club haven’t had a shout out for the covers to be put on.

If our pitch isn’t playable then Spenny’s definitely won’t be.

To be honest, the ground is really boggy as fuck and also saturated. I can see puddles on greens all over, so the water table must be really high?

If our pitch is anything like that, I think putting covers on right now would be a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has already bolted, maybe?

At least it's a home game, so no long midweek trip for our fans and most of our team. plus North Ferriby's form has picked up recently, so by the time the game is re-organised they're form may have dipped again.

And virtually a full squad (barring no more injuries).
Blyth off now as well.

Well the forecast rain of yesterday largely didn't happen, as well as the overnight snow. However where I live just out of town, it has just started to snow very finely. So no idea what'll happen when the pitch inspection takes place, but the chances must have improved since this time yesterday.

I hope it's off purely because of the wind.

Yes if it goes ahead, I'd imagine a small crowd due to the windchill, which means it will fell like -6 celsius!!! If it is on, then I'd reluctantly go, but any floaters definitely wouldn't turn up. We'd probably get a better crowd for the rearranged midweek fixture.

If true, let us cancel the game now. Don't want the s**t stirred just as we have got the team playing some half decent football. MG should be deemed "persona non gratis" and banned from BM.

Also as someone pointed out, North Ferriby have just hit a patch of form so may not be a good time to play them. Let's wait until relegation is certain for them as then they would have nothing to play for.

My problem with the wind is it fucks the football up making it a lottery. Not what we need when we're overwhelming favourites.

Doesn't really matter when we play North Ferriby they are at the point of playing with freedom with impending relegation not far away and probably more unpredictable after their relegation is confirmed. I'd rather get this game out of the way, besides we don't want to have the potential for a fixture backlog with Easter coming up and the slog to the end of the season. Let's get the 3 pts while we are on some form! :thumbup:

So if James Caton was wearing gloves last October, tights at Tamworth, what the hell will he be in today?

The conditions are more likely to favour North Ferriby, as it will even things up and we will lose the edge that we would have had in skill levels.

It seems like the expectation was 'postponement'
