General Discussion / Re: Invited Guests at the Norwich U23 Game

Other clubs further down the ladder, used their first test event of 300 spectators, to invite anyone who had voluntered, in the last year to attend free of charge. No other paying fans to attend. Thus ensuring the game passed off with no issues, so now 600 paying fans are able to attend.  Win win situation.

Ps Do people really still have "sense of humour failure" in this day & age.  :laughcry:

With the talk of 30% being the magical figure will 1650 be about right for our gate next season ?

Its the minimum capacity of the league, not the individual clubs, that are being used so far. It appears to be 4000 for the National League.
So 30% will be 1200.  So get your £35 ready.  :countingmoney:

Hmm, perhaps the people who question any "perks" that volunteers may or may not get, should volunteer themselves. Problem solved, everybody happy.  :countingmoney:

Would it be worth seeing if you can fit in another season ticket raffle before the season kicks off, I would be willing to gamble another tenner? :dontknow:

How about Contacting Mark Hearle to see if the Club would release the first of the new shirts off the production line, with the new sponsor's name.  Then get all the first team squad to sign it and The Trust run a raffle at a Fiver a ticket. 

Iíll even buy the shirt.

Maybe the Chairman could present the shirt to the winner.  Good photo opportunity for the Chairman/Club plus also help toward a reconciliation between SC and The Trust.


Well done Mallard. I'm sure i read somewhere they only cost  £1 to manufacture, so shouldn't be too expensive for you.

Hmm, looks like the "divide & conquer" tactics, re the support base, used by past & present owners is now bearing fruit.

Think if you click on the photo KES you can see that Social distancing has been pushed aside, while the photo is taken.   Difficult to have a group photo while maintaining Social distancing. 

The Lord Napier.... Where the Linnets & their fans drink.,......would make a grab ad in next years Match day Programme  :laughcry:

Just add the photo to the Nap's ad on the Trust website.  Perfect.  :cheers:

Think we can count ourselves lucky that Stephen Cleeve has said he is not prepared to continue to bankroll the club and wants to see it become self sufficient.   I guess thatís why we are getting so many appeals to the fans for funds.

Hasnít there been a couple of takeovers there in recent months from Overseas Investors ?

Only 4 weeks ago, an Asian shareholder increased his shareholding in the Club to 75%, effectively taking over control of the Club.

Club has apparently posted a £9,000,000 loss.

Previous owners sold to current owners citing one of the reasons as being "it was dissatisfied with the loss-making finances of the Championship................".

The current owners have now said something similar, "unsatisfactory financial performance of the club, due to the punishing economics of the Championship..........."

What they mean is,  spent money they never had, trying to keep up with the big boys.  :countingmoney:

If Mr Cleeve wants to copy supporter owned clubs, why not copy one, which last season set a weekly team budget of under £3k. Recruited a squad of hungry young players, who reached 2nd place in their league and turned the clubs finances round. Resulting in a monthly surplus being made, until covid reared its head.  Who's supporters were happy to have a team to watch, with anything else a bonus. Can't see this happening at Lynn can you?

Mentioning Darlington, Gateshead etc is just an attempt to make the appeal for cash, more acceptable to more people.  The figures speak for themselves. Supporters who own, or have a say in the running of their club, are more generous when funds are needed. Take FCUM.  £15k Crowdfunder for pitch improvements, target reached in 2 days, with £32k raised in a month when it ended.
I think the target has been set to high, given that the other appeals since lockdown started, appear to have only reached £5k. There's no harm in asking, but most Linnets have short arms & long pockets.  :countingmoney:
