    Any word on why the pitch had been narrowed 2 yards on both sides yesterday?

    less pitch less rent!!!

    i suspect it was an attempt t limit the damage of the peterborough wingers...which seemed a bit desperate to me

    I thought you have to submit your pitch size before the season started? Or it's because we've returned to The Ricoh and have finally been allowed to re-submit it?

    Yep, exactly that.

    Matched Ryton's and Sixfield's pitch width.

    I agree with Beduff on this.
    I was under the impression that the measurements have to stay the same through the course of the season and can't be altered from the dimensions submitted at the beginning.
    I would have guessed that they'd have to be the same as Sixfields or the dimensions should have been submitted prior to the Gillingham game.
    I wasn't there yesterday, are we sure it was definitely narrowed?

    Just seen the previous post, would make sense if we had to have the same dimensions as Sixfields.

    100% was narrowed. The previous lines are now in a green paint.

    There'll be some more lines covered by green paint come December!
    On this topic, I believe Man City are building or have built, 20 pitches at their training base to replicate those in the Premier League. I can only imagine it's more to do with dimensions than it is conditions.
