THIS FORUM IS FOR FANS OF DULWICH HAMLET FC TO AIR THEIR VIEWS BUT IS COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT FOR THE FOOTBALL CLUB
Whilst a mistake in my opinion, it does show there is widespread support out there for the modern all-weather surfaces. It really is only a matter of time, if there were 34 votes favour for this first major vote.
Some may say it's not 'proper football', but they're accepted all over Europe, and the game evolves. Otherwise we'd still be stuck playing 2-3-5; there'd be a tape between the posts; no nets; you could still charge the goalie in the back of the net...and how would Phil's dodgy shoulder hold up to that...need I say more?
...and brown leather footballs with laces :)
How could you "still charge the goalie into the back of the net" if there were "no nets"!
Clearly....that was after goalnets were invented! ;-)
Still a lot of ignorance about these pitches to get over if the comments of Kevin Kilbane and Leroy Rosenior on last night's highlight were anything to go by, wondering if the pitch at Maidstone would be anything like the ones at QPR and Oldham in the 80's.
