    Just looking at some weather reports and it doesnt look good
    Heavy snow Saturday night and all day Sunday. Around 6-8 inches of snow is predicted with temp around -7 to -13c at night
    I know the pitch will be ok, however access to the ground maybe a problem with ice and snow
    Does the club have any contingency plans to make sure the surrounding area around the ground is safe?

    they can ask for salt from all the local chippies
     
  3. If they've got any sense , now that Tevez doesn't want to play for us anymore , they'll send him out onto Ashton New Road with a bag of salt and a shovel in his hand!

    They'll cancel the match if they think the conditions are too dangerous for fans to get to the game. City's facilities should be good enough to keep the pitch in playable condition though.

    I put the club postcode in <a class="postlink" href="http://www.weather.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">www.weather.co.uk</a> and the forecast is nothing like as bad as you suggest. You must be referring to the forecast for your own area

    there are four severe weather warnings for Gtr Manchester, one every day until the match. the snow fall is not an exaggeration, there is a 60% chance of 'severe' snow disrutption.... although I don't know where he got the temps from, monday night will be extremely cold, with the added risk of fog.
