Unfortunately, I feel it was a relegation performance today.  Very weak and no creativity upfront.

I think we will be looking for a miracle.

Nothing wrong with the pricing provided we have a team worthy of it.   Top price, so I expect the team to at least be in the play off position all season.  That seems fair and equitable to me.

I hope he gets all this sorted and in place before he leaves.

He has been around a bit - I wonder how long he will stay?

No one should take any comfort from those figures.  I do not know composition of fixed assets but I would imagine most are unrealisable.  I am looking for a competent window dresser - know anyone?

Very strange this.  I can recall nothing in the post or subsequent responses that could cause offence.  Is it bullying? I wonder.  Why not name and shame the person who asked you to take it down.  Precedent has already been established by Cleeve so this shouldnít pose a problem for anyone including the club.

Iím keen to hear all the positives that came out of last nightís meeting.
On twitter, Cleeve says reduced prices only apply to Grade B games, Grade A games are existing prices.
From Mr Hillís posting I assumed all prices had been reduced!!

Mr Hill, the facts are painful arenít they.  Iím not so sure they are tantamount to slagging anyone off as you put it.  Iím just amazed how well you obviously think Cleeve is doing and your undying support.  It is to be commended and you should be very proud of what your doing.  In my view you are misguided but what the hell do I know.  I really really hope you make a difference.  Realistically I think your tenure will eventually turn to exasperation in the same way as others who have tried to proffer help.  One thing I can assure you, if you donate any of the funds raised in support of the incumbent owner it will be good money after bad.

Mallard, baby steps are definitely not the answer. We need bloody great strides.  You and I both know the current situation is dire.  The business is insolvent with unmanageable debt.  Revenue is below expected and likely to fall even further during the winter months.  Going full time is a colossal drain on funds and coupled with ever increasing costs such as travelling, power etc., the financial future looks very bleak indeed.  My background is financial and Iíve seen this scenario played out many times and is somewhat prevalent with one man bands.  Their ego surpasses reality and they plough on regardless of what is going on around them, generally headlong into the abyss.  Instead of seeking help earlier when the business might have been salvageable, they donít. They listen to no one. This in my opinion is where we are now.  It might be that Cleeve has something up his sleeve but I would be amazed if he managed to find another investor.  He has already said he would not put anymore funds in.  In my view, he cannot make further extortionate demands on the fans.  Maybe he has some fantastic solution he is going to enlighten you with tonight.  As Iíve said previously, optimism is a wonderful thing in the right circumstances. Iím not sure this is it.

Mallard, I disagree.   You have to apportion blame so those who are to blame learn by their mistakes.  Those who are so arrogant that they think they are infallible are very dangerous people.  Recognising ones mistakes and making efforts to put things right is a trait to be desired.  Something lacking with a certain person in my opinion.

Mallard, I wish I shared your optimism.  Investors in a sinking ship are very hard to come by especially when you consider Cleeveís colourful background. Of course, I might be totally wrong and everything will be hunkydory after tonight.  Iím already getting excited, we should have a fantastic crowd next Tuesday night for sure!!!!

I can tell you now, tonightís forum will be a complete and utter waste of time.  Of course fans are going to moan, gripe or criticise, call it what you will, because they are dissatisfied with way the club is run.  Cleeve has said in the past itís his club and he likes to run it his way.  Do you honestly think he is going to take any notice of the fans now when hitherto he has ignored and alienated them in way only he could do. In any event, in my view itís too little too late.  The writing is on the wall, I fear itís when not if.
Read Gavin Caneyís article in todayís YOURS local paper; itís a brilliant take on the current situation.
