Quoted from Civvy at last
The managers can come and go.

But while the budget and the playing/training conditions remain the same not much will change.  Just the names.  

And for those that can’t understand why our budget doesn’t appear to match our attendances compared to other clubs.  It’s because they have more outside income than we do.
Whilst BP has some fantastic memories for me, it is now a millstone around our neck.


I am not sure about that.

I have been to business meetings at BP over the years, with the usual fish and chip lunch and bar facilities. Seemed ok to me. Obviously I would rather have a shiny new stadium with extra parking and what not, but if the same people were running the show I doubt it make much difference.

What is needed more is a can do attitude and making the most of the facilties we have - I doubt they are utilised to their maximum.

Although it was a long time ago, my wedding reception was held there, and most people commented on how novel it was and how enjoyable it was; in fact there should be a law passed that every Town fan should have their wedding reception there to help finance the club.

Sorry lew its true. There was an article on the BBC about the club's which have the heaviest reliance on through the gate income I.e.they generate less off the pitch compared to others. Town were one of those clubs. Will try and find it

I have no doubt that part is true.

My point was - is BP being fully utilised or is it too easy to say "oh it will be different when we get a new stadium...."

There are a lot of division 4 grounds as bad or worse than BP surely? And according to your stats ALL of them provide greater revenue than BP off the pitch.

It is not great, we all know that,  but nevertheless it does have conference facilities that must be under used.

Blundell Park is not utilised to its full potential on match day, never mind during the week!

The big issue isn't in the dugout.  Don't get me wrong Jolley needs to improve and fast but he's probably another indication of we're getting what we paid for.  A manager with a lack of experience and a support team that's as equally young and naive.  We went cheap, hoped it be inspired and we're getting what we paid for.

The playing squad should ring alarm bells.  Our big summer signings were two strikers who are arguably past their best and on the way down the ladder.  How much interest would there have been in Hanson and Green considering their record of the last previous 18 months?

The club is run poorly with a short-sighted approach to everything.  That's the real issue.

Why, was the best man down there getting some goalmouth action in the box?


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

They’re competitive buggers aren’t they.
