Thanks Jamie for your reply and I am sorry to hear about your Dad and I wish him well.
There was an apology at outset on the club's twitter feed that due to illness and work there would be limited updates........but my comments are not really directed towards you, but the club....surely a plan B has to be in place for a full time NL club.... that's the point I made at the time and I still think it's a fair one.

Very, very pleased to see that.........remit covers much of what people have been touching on here...... including fan engagement.

All good to have in place, KES, but not money spinners.  And, to be honest, I don’t think they should be priorities, apart from trained stewards, because most people who attend games at the moment live fairly close by - why not have a bite or a cuppa before they come ?  Beer won’t sell much, if people have to drive home.  I see you made a point or two on the “thread” today, so presume you watched the game.  Any impressions of the team or players ?


Say re Southend at home Dilly.......if Covid doesn't scare people off, I reckon if you include the Southend fans, there will be as many at the ground who have travelled 30 miles plus to get there as there will be those that live round the corner.......so I don't think you argument stacks up....by saying it's not a money spinner, you are just taking the same attitude as those in charge of the club.......and there are plenty on here who are not happy and live locally....many locals want a long afternoon of football....drink before, snack at half time, drink after....... surely it's not too much to ask.


Re my points on the thread.... they were directed at the media dept.....for an NL club to manage one tweet after 20 mins to say the score was 2-0(when Stratford had already mentioned both goals...so old info), one tweet at half time and one at the end of the game, I guess was efficient 😁, but to me, very disappointing.....if I wasn't a Lynn fan, I'd be tempted to use the term tin pot.

...and whist food and drink may not be a big earner, for many they are an important part of the match day experience.....and given what people are paying to enter the ground, they are entitled in my view, to have that provided....goes along with comfort and safety in the ground, family atmosphere, no foul language, no racist chants, reliable and reasonable stewarding........all areas that at one time or other have been weak and should have been sorted by now.

IMO SC needs to balance out the priorities....seems utterly senseless to have a number of analysts on board measuring performance, assessing opposition etc, but no commercial manager and no one looking after the match day experience... that's a recipe for limited income and ultimately disaster

Well something's clearly not right in the set up at the moment...just look at the comments on here....all reasoned, all applauding the on field achievements and grateful for that, but at the same time , many peoples' feel good factor really soured by the match day experience. It really does smack of fear somewhere in the system. Fear of letting someone loose or fear of acting on one's own initiative......who knows which side it's on. There is a famous saying in Chinese Medicine, that "fear knots the Ki".......ie it interfers with the natural flow of energy and stops things happening that otherwise might.

Seems to me like the Ki is blocked massively somewhere !!!


I hope someone at the club is reading this thread, takes it in a positive way and urgently acts upon it....could make a big difference for everyone this season

Well should that be the case Griss, they could well be found out this coming season. Desperate for the support pitchside and desperate for the income, they will find people need enticing back into football grounds after the last 15 months of Covid. Some will be scared to come, some will have now found alternative things to do on a Saturday afternoon and many have been hit financially and will find it hard to justify the Stamford Bridge prices, as Mall puts it.

If the overall package inside the ground isn't right, attendances will struggle I feel

I have to say, that I can't really believe, half of what I am reading......£1000 to have your burger van in The Walks......if that's true it's simply ludicrous IMO.
There has been a whole season gone by, where somebody with some basic commercial nous could have planned this all out and weighed things up, to give the fans (the club's greatest  financial asset), the best possible experience on a match day, to ensure they attend in huge numbers and willingly part with their hard earned.......

Just not good enough......no real attempt to connect with the core fans all pre season and then a limp attempt to try to entice people to the first match..... should be way, way better than this....it seems to be just assumed that The Walks will be full and provide the atmosphere, that the team requires...WRONG...attendance comes from feeling involved, wanting to support YOUR team and liking the match day package and fayre.........next SC will be complaining about the level of attendance......just plain poor in my book

All of this would presumably come under the remit of the Commercial Manager. This is such an important job at this level. Its not one for volunteers. It requires a full time salaried position. It needs to be an all year job, not be closed for business when the season ends.

If anyone feels that the Club can't afford this, that would surely mean that we are punching above our weight and that we are at least one step too high.

Investment needs to be on going off the pitch as well as on it, to ensure long term viability.


Quite agree

Agreed, Samsdad.....it has to be a two way street.

The meals provided should be a good standard........but for those who can't afford that there should be a quality burger stall and a good quality jacket potato stall in the ground, with a selection of soft drinks, teas and coffees, all at reasonable prices.

There should be greater emphasis on club merchandise too....have some offers on scarves, hats etc
Give a free club mug to the first 50 through the gate and I am sick of going on about masks bearing the club logo.

It just seems like there isn't anybody at the club, thinking of positive initiatives, to get fans onside....it really isn't rocket science...........with the lack of a commercial side worthy of the name, it puts greater emphasis on getting good attendances.......   I think there needs to be a wake up call....I believe this coming season is make or break for the club, I really do.

Wow, "head of operations".....things really are moving fast at the club....never expected that....extend the changing rooms yes, but have our own theatre... that's another league.......hope Mark knows his ACL's from his lower hamstrings and has a suitably sharp knife :laughcry: :laughcry:

On a very serious note tho, it seems the club might be hampered by SC feeling not many have got his back....seems reluctant to recruit from outside when it relates to day to day running or finances.
I have the greatest respect for MH, who seems willing to take on these rather challenging roles........ challenging they are tho  at this level and require a level of expertise.

Ah so Mall.........well that explains that one.

In future IMO it should be the media department doing all the necessary club related tweets....mind you they need to start being a bit more prolific.

Not at all appropriate for a Chairman to get caught up in those sorts of exchanges on a social media platform......but that's the problem with social media... it's out there for everyone to see, posts can easily be done in the heat of the moment and things can escalate rapidly.

I am sure SC will convey his considered thoughts about our club through the programme notes in the future and they will be a good read.
