For God's sake! Football is essentially a winter season sport, it rains, get over it! Are they not men? Do they not realise that they won't melt if they get wet? I'm sorry but they are wimps!

This doesn't happen in rugby, league or union!

I don't understand why it was called off. The ball wasn't sticking to the ground. Another 4 days of rain to come

The pitch looked playable to me and I've seen far far worse played on (remember Hull here all those yeas ago?). Also I'd like to see the list of injuries to players and officials caused by wet pitches because I don't remember any such injuries, ever. That said, disappointment over, it probably works in our favour as even fewer silent Fleetwood 'fans' will be here next week - See You On Tuesday Fleetwood fans ;).

OLD - HEAD says...

As soon as we got into the ground we knew that the game was highly unlikely to start. The ground staff were certainly doing their best, but they were flogging a dead horse, as the rain kept coming down. Back home now and the rain is still bucketing it down, so it was the right decision.

For starters the game is on Monday night and as for the ball not sticking, did no one see when the officials came out for the last time the ball hardly moved in the top left corner and plumes of water coming up off the surface, and to the clown saying the players a wimps it wasn't there decision not to play it was the ref, in all honesty the players would of probably played if it was down to them

Doubt if the match can be played on Monday with more of the same weather to come. Wondered why the covers hadn't been put over the pitch when the bad weather was forecast? Or can they only be used for snow?

It was a case of be dammed if you do or don't. I think up to around 2pm the pitch was playable , the soon after the heavens opened, the ground staff was on a hiding to nothing, by that time Fleetwood and their supporters were here,
therefore it was a case of hope, great pity we were all geared up but you cant beat the elements , If as the forecasters keep telling us this weather will become the norm no matter what drainage is in place the present grass surface wont cope,
The FA/FL have now stated that artificial G3 surfaces can be used by all clubs entering the FA CUP next season therefore it wont be too long before they will be use in the league also, had tonights pitch been a G3 it would have been played.

Your name really should be TOTAL PRATT. No, this does not happen in rugby but when did you last see two rugby players pass the ball across the ground to each other. In those sort of conditions players sliding in to tackle each other could have been seriously injured. I suppose you would have enjoyed the sight of players being carried off on stretchers with broken legs etc.

The players didn't call the game off you fool, the ref did.
