Crewe Alexandre on Saturday

This is the Cheshire East Derby, with the two major towns in the local authority area playing each other. Crewe seems to be getting all the investment from CEC whilst Macclesfield's Town Centre planning and regeneration expenditure lags far behind.
Nothing to do with football but I just wanted to make the point.
Incidentally Crewe got its name Alexandra from the Danish born Princess Alexandra who became Queen Alexandra through marrying Edward VII. Crewe also played at Alexandra Park in their early days.

Whereas we are just Town. Sounds about right. They are getting all the investment including HS2 while we donít even have a cinema or a joined up ring road.

Apparently, they were formed in 1877. Our badge says 'since 1874'.

Both clubs have a long and historical tradition. Don't really see what relevance local or national government interest and investment has on 2 small lower tier football clubs.

It means we have no fan base as a population.

Having seen us play 3 of the top 4 teams in League 2 in the last few days I was reflecting on the drive home that I don't want us to go back to Non League football. We may have only got 1 point from a possible 9 but the standard of football is so much higher and it is good to be able to play matches at half decent stadia against sides who can control and pass the ball. We may tend to struggle in League 2 but I enjoy the challenge.

Some people may call me mad but if we take out the two mistakes Horsfall made we could have nicked it. He also had two free headers from which he missed the target. Sure these sides can football us to death but if we defend properly and break we can get wins.

Fossey, from the crewealex site I found this alternative reality set of highlights where a 2nd goal is scored (39 seconds)
