If we can continue to pull in 2,000 for each game the Chairman has to be happy with that.

Not a chance Mallard.  SC wont realise his dreams on a crowd that small. There's teams 2 leagues lower, going full time & building pitch length new stands.  :countingmoney:

Hands up anyone who really believes the current position is sustainable.  Obviously Mr Hill does - anyone else apart from the owner?  “Investing” money in the club now is putting good money after bad I fear.  Sums raised by The Friends, believe me, won’t even scratch the surface.  The current scenario has been played out many times before by others and it only ends one way.  When that will be is anyone’s guess, but in my opinion it will be sooner rather than later.  Let’s hope I’m wrong.  Not so sure that the well know phrase “every little helps” is applicable in this case. Any other views?

Going to need a lot of first class travellers coming to the Walks  to sort that debt out

If you can justify and can afford the money you will go....if you can't you won't.

I don't really buy this "it's only a couple of quid over the odds" argument.

Once the price goes above a person's threshold, that is it...whether it's by a quid or £50, as Dazza's eloquent post demonstrates.

Secondly if you are looking to attract new people/families to the ground, then every pound does matter....again as demonstrated by the Norwich fan who posted on here to say it was too expensive for him to come to Southend.

As I see it there are 2 choices.
The first is maximize the price and hope to rely on the core of 600-1500(as gs puts it) sticking with it  for the season, or

look to connect more with the potential fan base, market things better, improve the match day experience, have some offers on pricing and try to build the attendance and ultimately the revenue that way.

Maybe connecting more with the fan base is work in progress   :dontknow:  :

Hmm.  So this is Mr Cleeve's only appointment then?  How's that work, i thought he had his fingers in many pies. :cheers:

 No Vitriol here  You're entitled to your spin Mallard.  Falls short of the much lauded 4000 + gate. Has the bubble
finally burst.  Please discuss. :cheers:

When you consider that Southend fans due to the travel involved are likely to pitch up at the ground earlier than locals.........  ...

I wouldn't bet on that.  :cheers:

For Saturday games you will be required from 12:15pm until 15:10pm and then you will be able to watch the game.

To apply please contact Jamie Farr via Facebook or via email (  :cheers:

In my humble opinion the vacation should be made compulsory,don’t the people who are not having the jabs are spreading this deadly virus

Is SC  on a compulsory vacation then?

Mr Cleeve needs to sign one of these with the FOTL asap. Then everyone will know what's going on, and expected from each party.

« on: August 12, 2021, 10:14:39 PM » we have 11 fit personnel currently...  ..  to be honest, I am almost past caring....if the club can't communicate better than this, then they don't deserve to have my interest or money for that matter

You'll have the Sheriff of Nottingham after you, with comments like that. :countingmoney:

A Fan Survey is required here. A simple questionnaire asking what the fans want. What type of food, drink, entertainment etc.  What price they would be prepared to pay. It's worked at other clubs, could work here if the owner was to embrace the idea of putting the supporters first for a change.  Put it on social media, in the programme.  Would be ideal task for Grissles, he's suggested most of the answers already. If more people gave the same answers, it would be hard for the owner not to act on them.  Unless he already has plans for the future ? :cheers:
