Anyone going to sanction jock dock tower for giving it the Billy big one about your massive away support !!!!
More importantly and from a financial point of view shouldn't you be a bit concerned that you only had just over 5000 fans there on Saturday for your first home game of the season and one of the more attractive ones having won the first game of the season away from home. Doesn't matter a jot how many you take away you earn nowt from it. Pretty poor showing wouldn't you say???

around 5.4k in the home section, maybe seen as a little disappointing but its our second season back in the league and follows a relatively low key pre season with no real anticipation built up by the club media, transfer dealings etc.  Given our ST sales were 2700 i think, then thats 2700 pay on the day punters we are at potential risk of losing....and when the manager plays an isolated lone striker and 10 others sat behind the ball you arent inspiring them to come back regularly.

Would expect to see probably 1k less in the home end next time out as well following that grisly display, our club never fails to underwhelm when it comes to PR, promotional ideas, marketing etc...and at BP we have had a terrible record over at least 4-5 seasons now so very little to inspire the floating public.

If that is the situation, let's hope that clubs looking at our 'boisterous' away support don't decide to do the same to us. Still, if they do, I'm sure that JF and the board will fully understand that other clubs are only protecting their 'revenue streams'   But then of course, they will still get to see the match live !!

Maybe some number cruncher could come up with the ideal figure allowed into BP that would create maximum revenue. Obviously screw the fans that may miss out.

Of course, opening all four stands for a checkatwat game must make perfect sense !!!!!!

I really hoped that getting back in the league would make us a bit more professional.  Clearly not


But other grounds that we go to do have the police in, and in numbers, not sure if its down to Humberside wanting to charge the earth so the club just refuse to entertain them or whether its a point of principal by the majority shareholder/ board not to use the police.

I have something nagging at the back of my mind that the club had a fall out with the police regards increases in matchday policing costs sometime ago but cant recall fully.

And how many points have you got?  


More words and less meaning, communication disappearing.

Yeah but I just don't get it moosey cos even I have to admit you do have good away support. Like I say it's all well and good supporting the team away but it's numbers through the home turnstiles any club needs.
Maybe it is the ground. Not being funny but it's not  the best by a long way and  thats just being honest, the sooner you get a move the better although unfortunately I can't see it happening anytime soon.

That's my point Moosey. What if they decide it's cheaper to reduce our allocation and have no police. We'd be gutted and pretty annoyed and rightly so.


Why?

1 less than you at the moment Mariner !!
And that picture, probably one of your biggest mistakes letting Arnold come to us. Absolute class for us last season.
