The congestion doesn't concern me too much we have a hell of a lot of options now after our good jan window.

A townless saturday does make for a much more boring Saturday though

You would have thought all the money Mansfield have they would have invested in some decent covers for the pitch

I remember going to Field Mill around 76/77 and you couldn't see past the half way line because of fog and never got to see our goal when we scored

 I really put the mockers on it, pointing out 2 and half weeks ago that we'd done well out of getting thus far with no postponements  Sad

 3 since.  Conventional wisdom is you want to be playing, but we'll soon find out.

It could be Tuesday 10th March and if so would mean 3 away games in a week!

ah ok. I read it as through you though Mansfield was a home game.

bit of a bugger, but Walsall away is always a good one.  ah well, I'll buy you a pint when you come over to celebrate your bet winnings Wink

If it's off, it won't be the wind, it'll be due to a waterlogged pitch caused by today's rain. Like to think the grounds team at Field Mill will be doing what they can. No flood warnings or alerts in Mansfield itself though.

Just saying.

What makes a little bit of a mockery is that Notts County's home FA Trophy tie, versus Aveley still goes ahead. Wobbly Bob, head over there and watch Doyle take part in his 800th career appearance...actually scrap that they have just kicked off!

Did view the pitch yesterday whilst still up there.   Game would have been playable in my opinion had it not been for the waterlogging, yes there was a wind, nothing we couldn't have coped with,  there was more rain on the way up but most of the afternoon was dry, however,  there was absolutely no way that the match could have been played on that swamp.  Don't think there was a patch that wasn't waterlogged.  I was told it had been covered Friday night and that they now plan to renew the drainage system.   I know that the weather has been exceptional,  however there were only 4 games off in the top 4 divisions,  IMO knowing the forecast at the beginning of the week,  had the pitch been covered then, the game would have gone ahead.

I read somewhere that only part of the pitch was covered
