As Saturdays match is a " Dead Rubber " I suggest the following.................


How can you charge supporters full price for a game where most of the players wont be giving their all ??  £18  to watch sub standard football ? Lets face it even when we do give 100% at home it still aint that good

Imagine going to the Cinema only to be told by someone walking out having just watched it  " I wouldn't go watch it mate Half the Top Actors leave half way through the film and the rest just don't look interested "  Would you still go in a pay your £10 ?? I doubt it .

Im going to be told to get in the real world and get loads of abuse AGAIN ! Ok but the laugh is on me  if you want to pay good money for a sub standard product then good for you .
All I demand is 100% every time I go to BP , I rarely get it though ........................

As everyone seems to accept it is a 'dead rubber' then you have a choice, as always

I would suggest that if the club were to reduce the price on Saturday because the players weren't going to give 100% or watch sub standard football there would be a lot out there demanding a refund for many of the shite games we have had to endure at home these past 12 seasons or so.

Its a great point but it is not widely perceived that the Match really doesn't  matter on too many occasions ............. As Saturday is one such occasion I feel something should of been done to thank the Loyal 2500/3000 who turn up every week regardless .....................

Interesting as approaching 2000 of them are season ticket holders. What do you propose? I'm all ears....


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Would a point from this game give us our highest total in this league, maybe there is something to play for?

There's everything to play for surely. Players will be wanting to go out to try to nail a place in the playoffs.

Also, ticket stubs could become important for the 2nd le of the playoffs



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”
