Saturday's game v Peterborough Sports could be in serious doubt. Storm Dennis due to hit this area on Saturday. Predictions are that it will be as bad as Sunday's storm. We will have to keep our fingers crossed the prediction is wrong.

High winds forecast between 12 and 17:00 tomorrow.

Even if pitch is perfect, who wants to watch a game played in those high winds.
If it does go ahead, I wont pay to watch a joke game.

Lets hope the league sensible and anywhere predicted for high winds are allowed to cancel game.

Worst conditions i can remember due to wind and a game being played was a a Trophy tie at Hyde 3-3 . It was almost impossible to get the ball over the halfway line against the wind at its worst .

fairly certain you can't call a game off because of wind.

Ref called a Stoke City game off some years ago when he couldn't get the ball to stay on the centre spot for the kick off.
I saw a bloke lifted off his feet by the wind outside the stadium and on the way home 3 artics were blown onto their side along the M6.
They can certainly call a game off!

You can if spectator safety cannot be guaranteed.

But is that the call of the referee OR from an independent safety official?

I doubt the referee (unless players safety) as he is not qualified to dertermine if spectator safety at risk.

I just hope the league be sensible and allow any club facing high winds to call the game off.

Whoever is responsible for spectator safety. Ground safety officer or police. The referee is only responsible for on field matters.

I hope your wrong.

Man City did last Sunday

I have a suspicion they may spend more money on the pitch than Boro - I could be wrong

Not arguing, but can you find a link that confirms Man City game was off due to wind?

It was more the full on storm taking place, with items blowing everywhere, floods everywhere, and safety concerns for fans in and out of the ground and travelling, rather than 'heavy wind'.

Not arguing either.

I have no faith in football authorities to do the right thing.

Thing is - This is more than heavy wind, AND for "items blowing everywhere"..... err, thats caused by "heavy wind". :)

The item I dont want to see "blowing everywhere" is a spherical shaped object :)

Fully expect Boro to be called off early.

You can call off a game if its a safety issue which is the way around it . It's entirely down to the referee whether a game is played apart from in exceptional circumstances and if he was to call it off due to the wind being so severe the game would be unplayable i doubt anyone in official circles would make a fuss .
