GC think SC is never afraid to take a punt.  Look at his efforts to take control of Wrexham.  Must have been a close run thing  for their supporters group.   SC on one side and Ryan Reynolds on the other.

Bet that caused a few sleepless nights.   I guess time will tell.... did they make the right choice ?

Little rumour is opening night for the concerts is a David Bowie tribute act.... Couple of lads from Oldham, Carpenterís. Go by the name of Ziggy Sawdust.  ( Fools n Horses fans will get it)
So if its to be a tribute he would still have to pay up front and i would think £15, at most for a well known tribute £20.That will make a huge difference to the cost and take.
Much better though than the £162 to see Diana Ross at the Royal Albert Hall in October, and its nearly sold out!

Of course any fund raiser that has potential
For bigger turnover comes with big risk but big reward.   We know SC likes to think big.  Only have to look at his pricing structures on anything he does at the Club.

Itís having that confidence to back his own judgement the first time.  Will he... wonít he ?  He mothballed it this year so next year should tell all.   I see Carrow Road has already announced half a Take That with Oli Murs.  Somewhere slightly down market from that for The Walks..... who do you guys fancy ?
When you need to pay up front there is no chance he will think big.
To stand any chance to make 100000K profit you need to sell 3000 standing tickets at £50 minimum. 1000 seating at £75 As long as Richard and others are back at the club by then to clean the seats) There will be huge security costs, limited space for food/drink sales. Horrendous parking issues.
He hasn't got the guts to do it unless buy now, pay later. That will never happen with top acts!

They also have a very capable commercial side and I think they had sponsors booked for most, if not all, fixtures for the season before the season started.  That isn't something that happens overnight and takes years of building relationships with all sizes businesses

Tony, i can recall a time when we also enjoyed a similar level of sponsorship support, which i am sure Gordon can confirm!


Please don't go round in circles with this again.......we need new initiatives, not more lamenting on what was there in the past and is now lost.

Not going round in circles, this LIAR is just stating the truth. Fully booked in the past seldom booked recently and beyond. TO EXPENSIVE by a country mile subsequently few takers and by the soiund of it those that do a deal ITS CASH.
My words to SC on the trip to Joma at Harlow
Stephen you think you have bought Chelsea. You haven't even bought anything like the Chelsea of NON LEAGUE.

Just like the old days AKA Brian Nelson to name one chasing KLFC matcxh sponsors. 100% before a ball kicked and 1 of them (R.I.P) sponsored every cup game whether it 1.2.3. etc.

Afraid Gordon ? Surely not.  Would The GC be afraid ? She never pulls any punches
The LIAR (GC) is never afraid to tell the truth.
Unless someone seriously takes to social media/programme/podcast/YLP/Lynn News/EDP and Fully apologises to GC, Double G Clothing and KL Elite for his disgraceful comments it is definitely see you in court.
Changed solicitors, ( no reason he can take the P out of this ones name).

Serves him right for being Billy no mates and NOT listening to the free advice on offer.

In fairness, I think he did listen to a couple, but I think they were picked because they have the ability to say yes.
B&G thanks for being brave and posting that. I wanted to but was afraid. LOL!

Big events are a mental distraction, lots of effort and the rewards can be good, but not guaranteed.

Smaller, regular events where the bar gets the takings is where the win is.

Quiz nights, horse racing nights,  music events, the odd band,  all bring regular income.

Anything that benefits the club should be a free 'hire'

Private events, they should get the hire charges,  weddings, business functions etc should all pay.

But fundraisers for the club, regardless of who puts the event on, should all be free hire.

Silly not to really.
Kevin please stop posting the truth. You will get slaughtered for it!
How about becoming commercial manager, no fee of course! LOL!

It's country music what do you expect🫢
Rock/soul/ dance music always a chance👍
I'm sure a walks music event would be winner.....
Nothing to do with country music! Whats the difference with SCs headbanging crap?

Poor judgment certainly costs.  All these missed opportunities and poor appointment that all revert back to £ĎS. Would go some way to pay off the debt SC has lumbered the Club with.

Expensive hobby, some might say
Serves him right for being Billy no mates and NOT listening to the free advice on offer. Thought he new everything including telling ME how long it takes Chelsea to print a shirt in their clubshop.
Buster listened. No debt with Buster.

I would hope that the 3 wages saved, plus any transfer fees would fund a good goalscorer at this level

You'd like to think so, but that would depend on what The Chairman's main agenda is at this moment in time.
Has there ever been an honest agenda. Multi sponsors on the table what a joke! Only thing that ever went on that table was his caviar!

SC took the club higher than it has ever been, and frequently out of his own pocket.  The attendances havenít been anywhere near as good as he probably expected, and not enough to finance a team enough to hold their own in the very top of non-league football.  The managers have all been too defensive in selection, imho.  I fear that weíre not set up financially even for the current level, and I hope the Chairman maintains his interest and some of his ambition, or the Southern League may be our futureÖ
Where we belong except when we punch over our weight throwing good money after bad.

Also run before you can walk. Unless of course you are Billy Big Boots. Classic there was a huge country house concert week coming up (similar to the Sandringham bank holiday concert weekender). CANCELLED poor ticket sales!

Big concerts is big up front outlay. Marquee with 500 people would be the place to start.
There will be appeals against a bigger pitch concert because of the noise in respect of how close to housing and obviously parking situation which yes you also get on matchday but will make that area something similar to when they do fAWKES In the Walks on November 5th.
The last marquee i had permission for was placed so that the stage was just in front of the dugouts so that the noise went towards the railway line.
Another issue could be the dreadful twitter feed last saturday evening about childrens football in respect that KL Elite comes under the banner of Alive West Norfolk, subsequently BCKLWN.
In respect of the £750 quoted earlier for B&G events, that was years ago. The minimum now would be £1500 to £1750 takings on the door, not including bar take which with current overpricing minimum £3K a night.

Malc raising £750 on a night wonít pay a decent strikers wages for a week.  Thatís why SCís idea of big outdoor concerts must be so appealing to him.  He is the man with the vision.   It be Will interesting to hear who he has signed up for next year. 

I can well imagine some thinking this is yet another Cleeve scheme which will put Lynn on the map.  He has to do something to fund it.
In them days it was more than enough and it was not one offs there were regular events. Blue and Gold was fully booked every friday and saturday night (including my functions). Bar take average friday and saturday evening (not saturday matchday takings) if i remember was £3K. asically averaged out 300 people minimum over the 2 nights at a tenner a head). Christenings sundays, wakes etc in the week when it was sensible money to hire.
I did ring SC on one occasion as one of my embroiderers wanted to hold his 60th there. He quoted £650, i said way to expensive. He said includes my (his) DJ which i replied he has his own DJ. SC replies well that is an extra £50 as plugging in to his electric supply! No booking.
I wouild think he has LOST more bookings than he has hosted all because of COST.
