General Discussion / Re: Stewarding at game v S.Moors
« on: May 29, 2021, 04:08:50 PM »
B&G I would say not enough support is given to the stewarding team from those higher up. For example like mentioned above the person who was banned for 3 games for racism isn't enough and will never be enough. In my view because the people who cause the issues are paying to watch the team home and away those higher up will be a lot more lenient on them. Which isn't right. Everyone no matter their worth should all come under the same umbrella of punishment when inside the ground. Ultimately they will cost the club money in Fines.

I know a few stewards have left previously because they didn't agree with the way certain things were done and corners that were cut.

Coming in here to again defend the volunteer stewards. Some of the comments iv seem have been shocking and a lot of them have been quite frankly lies.

All stewards have at least a nvq level 2 in stewarding some have higher than that. All stewards are trained customer service, so if they got arsey with some fans then they probably had enough. Working for free for a club they love and get nothing but abuse from a section of fans. Please do mind my language but amongst the things said were kno*head, your just a d**khead etc etc. From minute one from entering the ground there were a select few that didn't care about the rules having known the rules (they were announced enough). They were all told politely by our own stewards. However having an outside events company working besides them who were a little heavy handed I can understand a little about the attitude of a couple of them.

At the end of the day, the rules are set by the authorities and have to be implemented by the club. Enough things of the Internet by the club, in programmes and signage was up so the excuse of we didn't know isn't really going to wash.

What happens if they don't abide by the rules today who knows but I'm sure we will find out.

General Discussion / Furloughed Players

Ive heard through the grape vine... Mazza, Southwell and all players that are currently injured have all been furloughed. That's along with all the highest earners.

General Discussion / Re: Social distancing at the game v Torquay

I can answer a couple of the questions put out on here today...

The 2 gantry were erected on behalf of the gentleman who runs video company for the stream, they use them 2 and the gantry above to give 3 angles of the match instead of just the one but i can understand the frustration in regards of the view. as myself did think it was a rather odd place to put them.

In regards of social distancing and mask wearing... in areas where there was more than enough space to be 2m apart some individuals just point blank refused after several stewards and club officials spoke to them along with numerous pa announcements.  (will this cost us by the authorities now reducing our capacity down further time will tell i guess).

With being the first game with that amount of fans in, everything was a learning curve so was always going to be teething problems. Id expected to see a few changes before our home game with notts county on boxing day. The only way can be up right?

On a positive note was great to have noise back in the stadium.

General Discussion / Re: More bail out money
« on: November 24, 2020, 02:48:08 PM »
It needs more detail.
I assume away supporters will not be allowed?
It's bad enough that some home supporters might travel together.
Interesting to see on Ollie Bayliss' chart on Twitter that the Walks has an 8,200 capacity.

I believe the capacity is around 4300 ( i think). I know it was reduced because of a few issues with the crush barriers in the north stand ( one adjacent to the walks) i know some failed a test last year. Then take into consideration the segregation zones so that will minus a few off of it aswell. I  know the oldham game there was 5,444 and that was a tight fit.

Will the main stand be able to be used by fans with the subs and some club officials taking up a few rows of seats either side of the directors box.

Well unfortunately for him IC already has Norwich FC calling the shots on their loanees, so he could never allow another team that pleasure.... :dontknow:

Oh give it a rest! Every opportunity you, like many others, slate the club. Get a grip will you. 

General Discussion / Pitch cover
« on: November 05, 2020, 08:42:30 PM »
If im right in thinking all funding required for the covers was gained. Does anyone know whats happened to them? Have they been ordered? or has the money just been put aside.

General Discussion / Re: Alex Street
« on: November 04, 2020, 08:41:02 PM »
I have nothing but admiration for alex, given his loyalty to the club. The season Danny gay came in and knocked Alex down the pecking order he was offered the chance to leave then but stuck around to win 'his' shirt back. However, i feel like he has almost  'chucked his toys out' as such after Archie was rightly or wrongly made number 1. I get anyone would want to play regularly however i think he was used to be a lone ranger for almost all the decade he was here so didnt like it when competition arrived.  I also feel as though setch as had a hand in him deciding to leave looking through his tweets previously.

Only my opinion

Well dilly somebody obviously thinks the virus doesn't attend stock car racing.... :glum: :glum:
And looking at the number of "volunteers" sitting in the stand at the walks the other night....their is obviously not only a tiering system put in place by the government but also a supporter tiering system put in place by Mr Cleeve. I know I'll be asking for my season ticket refund this season if the season doesn't finish... :red card:

Again information which is incorrect. They arent volunteers in the stand, its media, league officials and Home and away side directors. Thats without taking into consideration that subs and squad members aswell coaching staff are also seated in the stand as per the league rules.

No extra lighting was needed. As far as i am aware the floodlights are league 2 spec. These were put in place after the oldham fa cup tie, where sky had to bring extra lighting i believe.

GC you seem have so many sour grapes towards the club? Do you care to take time to explain why?
