They, like us, have home fixtures Tuesday/Saturday/Tuesday. Think our surface will probably hold up better.

We've been to Wembley a few times, played the likes of Leicester, Spurs, Man City and Middlesbrough at home, won the unsponsored derby as well as the Transporter Bridge derby and could well be in with a chance of getting to the EFL trophy final and play-offs this season.

Birmingham's pitch looks a bit dodgy too.

Yesterday on Radio 2 when discussing Brighton’s lights being left on 24/7 to keep the grass growing, a retired policeman phoned in and came up with an interesting idea adopted by Notts County.
In conjunction with the police they were provided with the growing lamps seized in raids on illegal cannabis farms, these were then adapted and put onto mobile gantries as part of a project by the local technical college. A great idea and those lamps are still growing grass!

last year there was a Tranmere fan on the league 2 forum moaning about our pitch on any thread. If someone started a thread about the cost of bead he would bring the state of our pitch up.

All I have to say to him is.

KARMA is a PITCH
