Now they're out of the cup, they can concentrate on;

a) the league

b) trying to be the best they can, or

c) minding the gap

And the new superstadium.

I accept that there is a different formula for sharing gate receipts in Cup matches but for League matches, these days, the home team keeps all of the attendance revenue. Having good away attendances for League matches thus adds not a jot to their team's finances.

If the 15'ers don't do something to address their piss poor home attendances, to at least reach break-even, then those ever so "loyal and true" supporters won't have a team to watch away from home before too much longer ... well, until a phoenix rises from the ashes in a park somewhere.

In on the 500th page.. #obsessed #thegift #mindthegap 

Ironic really as that is nearly a page for every game they've not played us in league football.

I say almost (+ 200 odd) :whistle: #ComingForUs

Sadly for them, I believe break even is beyond them, a full Mem won't cover the running costs so they will be trading at a loss.

Still, work is about to start on their new stadium soon......

no i don't think it is, they average 8k at a push? break even was 10k, but they've released alot of high earners or sold them and replaced them with youth team rejects and non league players on a lot lower wages,

the dog fiddler is doing a fantastic job with the tools he has, once he gets fed up then they will be well and truely ****** again and will tumble back down the leagues

Almost a shame we didn't win 1-0 last night, then, like Rovers we too would be having 'mythical' Taylor money burning a hole in our collective shellsuits.

Attendances is all they have got left to cling on to. My god they are so dead and buried it's unreal. All their loyal supporters who only ever bother to turnout when they play anyone any good must have felt the agony knowing that The Snake was putting in a man of the match performance in a red shirt. We know that they are the gift that keeps on giving, but the gift of Taylor for just a mere £300k was an exceptionally kind donation from the ragbag squatters. Tick tock.

Is Dopey really doing that great a job, or is that a bit of a myth..?

Granted, they scraped out of non league, then instant leapfrog of L2, just, was a good recovery. 

However, they sit 3 Pts above the relegation zone, in a piss poor League 1. They regularly get hammered and their discipline appears to be going down the pan, faster than my morning clearout..!

Last season they did ok. This season COULD turn into a bit of a struggle, if they aren't careful. 

Maybe Matty Taylor's goals really were worth £10million to them!

If Taylor's goals were worth 10mil, then maybe, at the end of the season and we have got promoted (and won the cup), we could offer him back to Rovers 

Ask SL nicely if he would write a cheque for a million quid, give them Taylor back and then take the Mem off them.

We seem to have too much going on at the Gate to stage car boot sales, which appears to be the Mems 'golden ticket'.

as much as he is a grade A bellend he really is doing a good job, there's not many with the limited resources that he's had would of got them to top 10 league one,

I think they'll go back own this season, as the undisclosed contract for Bodin reeks of similar to Taylor (Ie 6 months) and he will be gone in Jan,

And that is funny!

 

You do realise that spastic is a term so often used (incorrectly) in the past to put down/belittle someone who is disabled or of limited cognitive ability, spastic is relative to muscle, nothing to do with mental ability, then again I wouldn't expect you to know that afterall this isn't the first time you have used a term that is insulting to those less able as a put down to gas heads!

 

 

Literally thought that was what it said, which I found funny! No I didn't know that though, quite interesting now you mention it.

I did a back of a fag packet calculation the other day based on our commercial revenue.

If we say the sags have an average home gate of 8000 a match and we say they have an average ticket price of £25 per head, according to a figure posted on OTIB recently we are making 2.5 million a year from commercial use of the stadium (meetings, conferences, exhibitions etc), all this means that the sags would need the revenue from 12.5 of their home games just to equal what we make from the commercial use of our stadium. That's half a season. 

Their new commercial manager is going to have to be bloody good to close that gap.

When the Al Qadis took over and promised them UWE, Hamer said breakeven was 15k, which is why they couldn't stay at the Mem as they'd die.

Of course then UWE fell through at they're staying at the Mem, so wish they'd get on with ending...

So blatant racism results in a warning but the heinous crime of supporting a rival team (virtually any other forum allows guest supporters) is an instant ban?

Speaks volumes about them, none of it good.

There have been some complaints via the admin system that I wrote an ageist post (fair enough, I can see why and point taken). However, this is a copy and paste from page 1 of the link above which 2 posters individually wrote, which prompted me to write the thread I have. It was not my intention to target a particular age group.

"The way I see things, is that I am actualy too old for all this PC nonsense to affect me. You cannot teach an old dog new tricks, so my defense is that I am the way I am, because that's the way I grew up."

"Exactly how I see it I'm 60 in 2 weeks and I ain't changing the way I think and speak for anyone (although I have to keep my opinions to myself on here cud every time in the past I have written what I think it has been removed and I do not want to get banned from the forum)"


It was written as a warning that era of upbringing has no bearing on whether it is acceptable to use of any form of slang relating to race or ethnicity.

I hope it clears the matter up and if anyone would like to discuss anything further then I would welcome a PM.

Thanks

Steve

FFS Redkapp?, they would have to suspend all of their Memorial upgrades immediately, no more carpets cleaned, no more new curtains, no more damp proofing of tents, no more kerbs being lowered and most importantly where would that leave Santa's grotto?.

How else would 'Arry be able to recruit the normal army of players?.

On the bright side I suspect Dopey would be happy with 'Arry's dog becoming the gas's new tax consultant.

I don't see how age can be cited as a reason for racism. I will be 56 soon and I have learned what is acceptable and what is not acceptable as the years have gone by, to say something like "you can't teach an old dog new tricks", is tantamount to saying I am too lazy to moderate the way I speak or that I actually don't care whom I offend by using outmoded language. I have no doubt that it is beyond them to change the way they think, but I hope their moderators do their duty in censoring how they express themselves. 

It annoys me because I feel like all people of a certain age get lumped in with this stereotype, as someone who grew up with Rock Against Racism, bands of mixed ethnicity and supporting a team that contained black players, I have never looked on someones skin colour as being a defining reason for whether I like them or not. It's an attitude of mind not a question of language. 

 

Dammit, too early to get mythical 25k :)
