[Archived] Stoke pitch


ABBEY

Recommended Posts

Sam used to do it at Bolton...

I'm sure our pitch got narrower in Sams first full season here

I believe they change it for Europa League games

Edit: which I have just seen has already been posted in this thread, my mistake

I think that's due to Uefa rules for the competition.

As I understand it, the pitch dimensions have to meet a minimum size, other than that, they can do as they like, indeed, Burnley, when they played Stoke, brought the advertising boards forward to prevent Delap having a run whilst taking a throw!!

Asrenal narrow their pitch for a quick passing game, Dalglish had the pitch cut to the same length (even at Brockhall) and lots of water to make it lively!!

Have they or are they allowed to change dimensions mid season?

ABBEY. I can't remember the club but I can recall this happening more than 40 years ago. It's not new. There are minimum and maximum dimensions and the club can work within those as it wishes.

I think once it's set at the start of the season it has to stay the same.

John Beck had the grass longer in the corners.
