Is it an unfair observation? With the way we play, a good pitch is vital. We've got another big game on Tuesday. Hopefully it will be better by then.

 

It isn't about blaming anyone, just noting something.

Exactly. Our pitches for years have been fantastic no matter what the conditions.

 

I don't think anyone is moaning at the pitch, just pointing out that it's a bit if a surprise that it's not the pristine quality we're used to seeing it.

 

I'm sure there's a hundred reasonable explanations as to why, but it doesn't stop people spotting it!

Under soil heating will have been on a lot due to minus temperatures, guessing this could result in it being boggy?

Mostly likely cause - under soil heating really aren’t the best thing to use cos they quickly make pitches go muddy 

 

There has been an issue across English football this season with the pitches though - a lot putting it down to the lack of maintenance during the off season and having rush their ‘programmes’

Ha I remember this 'hot tent' being the reason our FA cup 3rd round match vs Norwich was selected for MOD...79 I think... we won 3-0. Great memories freezing my nuts off in SK3.

Did Buchanan and Peake make debuts that day?

I've seen a lot worse pitches this season at other grounds but it did strike me yesterday how poor ours looked.

 

I think we are so used to having arguably one of the best pitches in the league, it stands out more when we have a few imperfections. 

 

I know we have had some atrocious weather, and the time of year, but will be interesting to see the pitches at Old Trafford & Emirates etc.

 

Still, I think we are just spoilt with our pitch. Especially when we used to have a lawn mowing Banksy enthusiast.

Mr. J Ledwidge's team, I think.

A different team at the training ground (where he's based but also manages).

He’s the manger of all three sites. 
 

One of my close friends works at the new training ground and one of my close friends is the head groundsman at belvoir drive.
