Fleetwood winger Matty Blair believes decision to postpone play-off semi final was the "right decision"

York Press: Fleetwood's former York City star Matty Blair talks to the media after the Bootham Crescent postponement Fleetwood's former York City star Matty Blair talks to the media after the Bootham Crescent postponement

FORMER York City favourite Matty Blair believes the right decision was made in postponing the League Two semi-final first leg clash with Fleetwood Town at Bootham Crescent.

The double Wembley winner with York two years ago, who now plies his trade with the Cod Army, said it was a "shame" the weather made the pitch unplayable - and forced referee Carl Boyeson to call time on the contest - but insisted Fleetwood will be ready for their return on Monday for the rearranged match.

"It was the right decision and we will get ready for Monday when it will be the encounter we are all waiting for," Blair said.

"We were ready tonight and we will be ready on Monday. It is our job to prepare right and to prepare for situations like this."

Blair said he and his teammates knew from the moment they saw the playing surface that the game was in trouble.

"It is such a shame," he added. "We turned up and we went out on the pitch and you could see straight away that it had a lot of surface water and it was just a case of when it was going to get called off really, not if, which is a big shame.

"I am pretty sure the whole of York and the whole of Fleetwood were preparing for a great tie but we will go again, prepare right and see what happens."

Blair is hoping as many of the Fleetwood fans who made the journey from Lancashire will make the return trip on Monday.

"I am sure the chairman will put out a few messages and encourage the fans to come back," he said. "He's really good at getting the fans together.

"I am sure they will want to watch the game they have been deprived of tonight."

Anyone know if the rearanged game is on TV? sophie hicks said it was doubtful on the radio which would be a shame. Surley there must be a way to segregate the fans better to get more york fans at the game as it seems a waste to have a full section of the popp stand unused.

Judging by the extremely aggressive attitude & behaviour of the Fleetwood fans mingling with York fans whilst going over the railway footbridge after tonight's postponed game I hope that most of them them stay away next week. Their behaviour (no doubt fuelled by drink) (inc. 'women') was atrocious.

Also disappointed that York police tolerated this behaviour & allowed them to get off scot -free apart from a few words of disapproval.

We don't need or want these fans back in York , please stay in Fleetwood, where clearly this behaviour is more acceptable.

The right decision for the benefit of players & officials, if disappointing for fans. It would be a shame to go out @ play off stage by a bad mistake, caused by the weather, after a 46 game season.

Lets all get down on Monday night & generate a great atmosphere to see us get through to Wembley again.

Don't think it will be on Sky. They already have QPR v Wigan on Monday night. Still, we went ages without winning on TV so hopefully a good omen!

Don't worry about the Fleetwood fans mate. All the teams who play on the coast have fans who are the same. They eat too much radiation affected fish from the sea up the coast at Sellafield. It makes their behaviour very odd indeed. Scarborough fans were just the same, when they had a team.

Listened to the Five Live Sports Extra coverage last night, with two North West
commentators decrying NW's assertion that Fleetwood are the Man City of the division. They considered Chesterfield to be the big spenders and thought NW was trying mind games to 'needle' his opponents. They also thought that Fleetwood had no pressure in the play offs as they had had a great season. Seems like they are in denial. Surely Alexander will be sacked if they fail to be promoted. With their spending power, the burden of expectation is all on their shoulders.
Interesting to see the total attendance figures for the Division with Fleetwood averaging 2833 for the season,whilst Bristol Rovers averaged 6420.
Portsmouth had over 355,000 through the turnstiles while Stanley had just 36,000. Talk about working on a shoestring budget,well done to Mr.Beattie for staying up on that.!

A few comments after another heavy downpour and hearing the forecast for tomorrow!
I hope City have got some proper gear in to get water off the pitch. The Racecourse and YCCC (Headingley) have such gear though the former might be using it as there's racing this week!
Covers might help but do they actually collect the water so it can be removed from the pitch area entirely?
Lets hope so because no idea what'll happen if tomorrow's game doesn't go ahead!

Another thought. I heard Fleetwood sold their allocation of around 2000. But at most there were 400 of them in the ground last night? Where were all the others? Perhaps the news here was that their allocation had been sold just to stop York fans buying tickets from Fleetwood?
It's a pity the segregation isn't more flexible because if it was then more home tickets could have been sold - though this may be an 'access to toilets' issue. I can't remember - the last time I was in that end of the Crescent was 1985 v QPR in a Cup game. A week later they bought John Byrne from us....

Another thought...the match is 'sold out'. But there was loads of room in the Shippo last night. This maximum capacity is ridiculous, and costing the Club money. With the sellout crowd tomorrow can the Club get some Safety Officers or Police in to vouch for the ridiculous limit on the Shippo capacity? I reckon several hundred more would get in easy...
Arsenal in the Cup was the last time the Shippo was full. The gate was over 13,000 that day.... (I don't think the Liverpool match topped that).

Don't be. Clubs that rise so fast through the pyramid have no time to generate the fan base you associate with clubs in the football league. Fleetwood are a here today, may well be gone tomorrow outfit. Remember Gretna?
Yes you are right a typical example was the rise and fall of Rushdon & Diamonds, In fighting and players refusing to play, you name it , it happened ,
A hard core base and a history counts , I have many friends in both the Bristol clubs , their supporters are very protective of their clubs ,and what has happened to the GAS HEADS wont last long they will spit blood to get back in the league again, its important to have teams like them and us, Grimsby, Chester, yes and Gateshead amongst others that graced football of years go by.

I was gutted, well and truly p'ed off. I got the ticket and the weather let us down. Returning on the train this morning, without the game under the belt was pretty rotten, surreal. I reckoned no better than a 50:50 chance of a start tomorrow and so couldn't risk a two night stop over extension in York. I know there were a lot of home fans who had come hundreds of miles for the match and I'm feeling better now. Thank goodness that it's going to be on Sky 2, if we go ahead tomorrow night. I'm not a fan of that organisation, generally, but those 24 hour viewing passes make the decision easier.
Has anybody had any feedback from BC about the state of the pitch, currently? If it's too bad tomorrow, my guess is that they'll try again on Tuesday but that if that doesn't work the tie will become a single leg affair on Friday. Are there any regulations or precedents here, or do you suppose they make it up on the hoof.
Incidentally, there had to be no gripes about the postponement. The touch line by the Pop. stand was under inches of water, so the basic prerequisites to allow a game of football to proceed were not in place - visions of the ball floating out of play, etc.

There could be more york fans at the game by filling the empty section of the popp stand and deploying stewards /police at each side of the big metal gates. I think this section has been left empty since the carlisle fans caused havoc a few years ago, throwing seats/ bottles and such like at us but i was there that day in the dark days of the conference and there was only about 2 stewards there and 1 of them was about 16. Sell more seats, get more money - win win!

i totally agree with peppa concerning the so called capacity in the longhurst stand.i still remember the southend game last season having missed half an hour of the game only to find when finally getting in there was loads of space.everyone appreciates the reasons for the reduction in capacity after such as hilsborough but the capacity at b.c in my honest opinion has been reduced farther than it seriously needed to be for safety reasons,a certianly a few more in the longhurst wouldnt be difficult to manage.i also agree with the idea of maybe using part of the away end for city fans specially when playing someone like Fleetwood with a small following.

I'm happy to be corrected, but I believe the Shippo was fuller for the league game a couple of weeks before Liverpool in the cup. That year was when the club first tried a voucher scheme, attend one match and get a voucher for the cup game.

NotInOz, It would not be a godsend, rather a public relations necessity that the club should now keep us absolutely up to speed on this. Simply to let a full house turn up again, knowing that a further torrential 20 minutes would, once again, put play in doubt, would be a disaster.
