The creeping shadow of 3G pitches

http://3g.thefa.me.uk/

I am not a fan, but look how many clubs in non league are switching in the latest list.

I am 100% against 3G pitches in football. The game no matter what anyone tries to justify is different. Football should always be played on a natural surface, grass. I am so against it in fact i would probably give up.

Couple of articles for you take in.

    Lol well it was one of our "enlightened" younger fans back in 1995 who decided to tell me I was not a real fan as I had missed 3 games on the trot, despite the fact that I had just done 8 years without missing any games! I missed Oxford home and a further few after during that season.

  • I am sure the decision is about cost and upkeep. I agree with what you say about grass but with clubs struggling to keep afloat its a fairly big cost out of the way once you have a pitch laid. The game at our end of the leagues and below is being starved of cash so the decision s a financial one mainly.

  • what about desso grass are you against that too that isn't 100 percent pure grass .

  • Unlike the pure stuff trevor smokes

    Everyone's against Desso. Expensive, crap and usually means a rugby club in the vicinity.

  • well i don't see a problem with cost cutting where the experts at that so i agree with 3g much cheaper option in the long run .

  • It's also cheaper for players to wear no kit or boots. Are you in favour of the too @trevor?

  • no where you in favour of our youth system being shut or not

  • I'll level with you. I've no idea what that last post means.

  • well your not in favour of 3g pitches it seems that save alot of money which would benefit our club considering where always skint apparently .

  • Which is cheaper? 3g or 1oz?

  • One eight ball.

    How do you work that out? I've said nothing about being for or against 3G pitches.
