AL has said that when he came to the Club it was a mess.

If that was correct, is it any different now?

Anyone know why we only have one home pre-season friendly?

I would have expected several so that some cash comes into the coffers before the start of the season.

I can't see many supporters driving around the East of England to watch our lads plus the most famous of players, "Trialist"

Like many others, I think pre-season matches are a good way to work out who's who on the pitch.

Perhaps we don't need any income because Invisible Joe has a bottomless opal mine or some great land deals that will keep the club going.

I assumed work on the pitch means that pitch won't be playable until August.

Maybe Joe is funding an all weather pitch. :dontknow:

The fact is that buying a season ticket up front at Lynn is about the right price point for this level of football....Paying on the day as most fans tend to do is vastly overpriced and that includes away fans.If the walks was oversubscribed every home game then that's a different story but it's not.The club apparently has new investment but as of yet there is no paper trail whatsoever to back this up so perhaps" the pay on the gate fans" are still subsidising  the hobby.

We needed 300k to get us to the end of last season.

Joe came on board with his investment and we got to the end of the season.

So was the 300k all Joe's? Is he going again with more funds or is some of his previous investment still in the Bank?

For the amount of money he put in and saving the Club, surely we should be hearing a lot more about him, and if he's going to be financially involved going forward.

McCammon has left Sports.  So would think heís heading our way

Offered a contract with Sports but declined.

Have to assume there's been a better offer put on someones table.

Apparently the Whatsapp drums are banging this afternoon, and that's usually a precursor to a new signing!

:scarf: Afraid it comes down to accept whatís available and pay for it or go elsewhere or nowhere. If you add travel time and costs other alternatives are not so attractive. So that is the choice amen

Very few, if any, will go elsewhere.

However they will go nowhere, or find another interest.

Was it not Paul who was suggesting a big pitch overall had been planned for the summer months, which was going to cost serious money.  Surely that canít amount to just a new mower, courtesy of Ben  Burgess ?

Just to confirm I said there was work being done on the pitch. Didnít mention the cost (as no idea about that) or how big the job was.





And the pitch is having work done on it this summer.

 :clap: :clap:  :clap:

That was situation last season so a 3% uplift for next season isnít going to change that

You're probably correct, but don't you think something has to change somewhere, if we needs gates to increase?

Obviously we all suffer from cost of living increases, but lets not also forget that energy prices have come down by a large amount, and the Club has released/not resigned the most expensive players on the books.

It would seem, again on face value, that the club will be receiving an increase in revenue, at the same time as a decrease in expenditure.

I'm not saying that's wrong, but there's always two sides of the coin when looking at such things, and the Club does seem to only want to point out the things that are in their favour.

So a 3.3% increase.  Nothing wrong with that. 

"Nothing wrong with that".

3.3% increase does not look too bad on the face of it but surely that depends where the starting point is. If it's too high to start with, the compounding effect just means it's getting worse all the time!

Any increase is no incentive when it comes to attracting new supporters.

And of course people will compare to other clubs prices, who may be charging less for a higher level of football and better facilities.

Thatís a few part answers on 1, 2 and 5.  Keep
It coming

I seem to remember someone saying that No.5 was all in hand.

Maybe part of this plan is to just let the grass grow for a few weeks.   :dontknow:
