Artificial pitches in the football league - your views.


Several clubs have expressed their aspriations to reintroduce artificial pitches citing it will save money and increase revenue. These '5-a-side' esque pitches were banned in the late 80's when they were considered damaging on the players. Now with improved technology, they have improved considerably but is it worth it?

If they're anything like the 5-a-side pitches I play on...slide tackling is a definite no go. :blank:
