I just cant see this game being on. As much as we all want it to be on.
We've had so much rain.
The groundsman has done a great job but he is no miracle worker.

General Discussion / York City support

Anyone heard how many York intend to bring?
Obviously they have one of the biggest home supports in non-league but do they travel?
Add s to the atmosphere when we have guests.
We play better with atmosphere.
(thought fans very quiet at Ebbsfleet, tempo on pitch reflected that)

A few things
Back in the day, just prior to the old club going bust, the directors of the time had a survey done by a statistics company. The result was that the area could only supply an average gate of 1500. It was with these facts that they took the demotion option. They knew they couldn't afford to bank roll it. Other things then transpired that was the final nail at that time.

"Some" clubs can run at a gate of less than 1400. Take Brackley as an example. Their facilities are not a patch on ours. Their overheads on ground maintenance would be significantly less than ourselves. Also we do suffer with our geography. We are a long way for most teams to bring significant away fans. Darlington for instance take a 1000 away regularly. Nowhere near that number came to Lynn. With our geography we also have higher travel expense.

One thing we could do better is our commercials. SC needs help in this area. He personally doesn't know the local area and personnel who could or would be able to help him with sponsorship etc. Bringing in a commercial manager is a big move. They would probably need to bring in circa 40K to pay for themselves. It really needs a team of people in the know. Who can call on favours. Getting those people involved needs to be a step in the right direction. Unfortunately SC one way or another became detached from supporters and some sponsors in his early days. To much bad press which was probably unfair.. That gap needs bridging. It will be hard for him to get those volunteers who can help, if he wont let them play some role in the club. The club needs a big character who is able to engage with fans and local business. Maybe without the emotion.

50/50 is down this year probably because the ladies who used to sell the tickets, I MEAN SELL, are no longer doing the role. Again its character. No offence to those who do the job today. I couldn't do what those girls did.

SC needs volunteers at all levels. Charging them for the privilege might be a bit much.

All
Do not hit panic buttons or think Mr C is being argumentative.
He is simply spelling out reality.
I often read on here comments that suggest we must be rolling in cash because of one good gate or one win in a cup match. I have often offered comment based on business sense.
So, rather than panic or be down, take action.
*Bring a mate
*talk positively about what is going on at the club
*ask your boss to sponsor the club in some way
*if you are the boss-can you do something?
*can you, your boss, your company offer any free services or supplies
*Be positive

More likely return than Cameron Norman
Norman been playing for Walsall.
7 starts and 2 sub out of 15 league games.

Ian is obviously a good manager.
He is also good at manipulation, in the style of the Harry Redknapps of this world.
His answer was probably constructed to get this reaction. To add a bit of pressure to getting another body in.
He did it regards the pitch etc. Chairman reacted!!
Doesn't player signings get negotiated via Rob Back, director of football? The buffer between Ian and Steve.

I would doubt the few big gates we have had this season have helped balance the books up. Those gates have also come with added cost. Also been short of home games in October! There has Been big investment off the field his season. I would imagine the club is a long way off break even.

Keep it positive. Our job is to enjoy the ride.
