Fulham v hull last observation
« on: November 08, 2019, 09:37:43 AM »
The wether had been terrible and there had been much rain

before the game we watered the pitch

Why? It seemed to me that was madness. Either it was an error and if so a very bad one, or if it was askked for it was an even worse error IMO.

I've seen that before as well when it was raining, or just rained, and they turn the sprinklers on. Seems senseless or poor planing or both.

I'm led to believe the drainage on these new pitches is very good and in fact they do that to still keep the grass as slick as possible.

Can't understand it as it must leave a slippery surface and increase the risk of an injury.

That grass is like nothing I've ever touched before. It doesn't feel real. I'm sure they're watering it because the drainage is so good and it needs it. Don't think it's turning into Iver Rec anytime soon.

Makes sense - I actually went to one of those tours or something on a non-game day when I was in town and had some free time off work and illegally touched my tippy toe on the surface, and indeed it is quite lush. You could probably sleep on it.

I do not appreciate such a rude response. It is not worthy. I am not a professssional footballer but comment on tactics and team selection.
I am not a politician but comment on the state of the nation i am not a psychologist but know a very unnecesarilly rude person when they make foolish comments!

I have seen modern pitches where the grass is half real and half fake.  The real grass is seeded and planted in between tufts of fake turf grass.  The pitch is mowed to the height of the fake tufts of grass and is supposedly held better in place by the fake tufts of grass.

Interestingly last time Fulham went to St Andrews Stadium, it was rumoured they didn't water the pitch much and it ended our unbeaten run.
