Was just wondering whether the pitch condition has any relevance on your team's performances. Common sense tells you teams who keep the ball on the ground, and have passing set as 'Short' rather than 'Direct' would suffer on poor pitches; yet would play better on pitches in good condition. However I am managing Truro City in the Blue Square Premier, and my pitch condition is 'Very Poor'. My tactics are set to play an attractive, expansive game, and the ball is rarely hoofed into the Cornish sky. However my home record is twice as good as my away record despite the pitch not suiting the way I play in any form.

So in short, does pitch condition actually have any effect?
