I share your frustration but I’m not sure where the fans have been treated with disrespect in recent weeks.


Same point - it's not about now - the recent history has created a mutual lack of respect between club & fans. Many fans remain frustrated - no stadium, no progress, no 'hairs on the back of the neck' signings.

Surely it’s about now, you can’t change history, people bearing grudges about the past does us no good.

You keep trotting out this shite that you season ticket holders are helping the club in some special way when in fact you are doing very little. It is swallowed up in daily running costs. You would do the club more of a favour by buying individual tickets, the club would get more money.

Well in that case where would the money for running costs come from if we had not coughed up? STH have lobbed £1M into the coffers before a ball was kicked at 5pm Saturday had you offered a refund it would stand at around £2.80 about what you pay for a pt of Bitter

That’s cobblers without stable season ticket income the club can’t establish a stable operating or playing budget. You can’t forecast based upon who might or might turn up on a Saturday afternoon.

Thats strange, just about every other business can. Why cant football clubs? Give the punters the right product and they will come

I could reasonably argue that things are so bad because of st holders. They have your cash regardless and don't have to put any effort in to get your repeat custom.  So you are the cause of a lot of the problems, not a cure as you would prefer to see yourselves

Those proposed new tower blocks in Cleethorpes will be up and we'll still be talking about a new stadium.

The new ground, I refuse to call it a stadium, we're a 4th division club and stadiums,( or is it stadia?) are where they have dog racing, anyway it's dead in the water, has been for months that's why Fenty has been keeping his gob shut for so long. The NIMBYs have been quiet as have the council and that fly-by-night sounding lot who were supposed to be involved

It ain't gonna happen


I don't actually want to say I told you so, but, intercourse it, I did
