Watford are due to play Villa in the league next week, but I would guess that would be rearranged.
AM if that is the case no chance whatsoever - there was standing water everywhere today and as there is nowhere for it to drain no chance of it being better with more heavy rainthe weather for monday is horrible torrential rain all day and tuesday not much better
Something needs to be done. Is relaying the pitch actually a solution to the underlying problem, though?The concern for me is that with the amount of grassless turf on the pitch at the moment, even moderate rain will be enough to cause postponements between now and the end of the season. We had a long dry spell prior to last night's rain, but that did not prevent the pitch from becoming a quagmire.
Do we reach a point where the playing surface is simply not fit for use without being relaid ?
Furthermore, we have to persuade any transfer targets to play on THAT!The state of our pitch has become a real embarrassment. It has the potential to really cost us since delays in the Watford replay shorten the time between knowing what our revised budget is and the end of the transfer window. At this rate we will end up playing a stupid number of games in the spring which could hamper our survival chances.
