A nice, succinct argument. That's me told.

We could play your suggested 5-a-side on a new 4G pitch, in the way of a community foundation level tournament. Excellent idea, FP.
We could do just that if we ever decided to go pitch style tinpot

I suppose Harrogate and Sutton view us with envy.

We shall reclaim our rightful place* in the Football League by playing on grass. Eventually, maybe. I wonder if we'll still be standing on wooden terracing steps.
We're only in the 44th year of our unfortunate brief sojourn into non-League football. Give it time.

*the one we would have lost in 1959 if it weren't for the old pals act.

Calm down Ralphy. It was a tongue in cheek comment. My personal preference is not 4g pitches however should the club see fit to put one down I won’t be starting a protest over it.

It's all getting a little heated let's not forget we are all Port fans, so there is no need for turf wars. :-)
The players always get a good reception so what difference would 4 or 5G make. :idea:
Ref Telford, is the game postponed due to an outbreak or another flare up. :lol:

So was mine, 90% of my comments are.
I tend to agree that I prefer football on grass but 4g could give us a playing and financial advantage that a poorly supported club desperately needs to compete if we want to ever reclaim that League place.

Anything that even gets us closer to the national league would be a welcome addition!

I agree we should always go for it.
But the make up as regards Southern teams is horrendous.
I think about 50 miles away is the nearest.
Most of them are further than London never mind Birmingham.

Then we should aim to spend as little time in it as possible and get back inton the Football League where there'd be plenty of more local games.

There’s something poetic about replacing Wigan in the Football League…or Rochdale.

Not that I’m bitter.
