Kes ...the limit on away fans should be let's say 1500 .They should  have half  of the North stand and half of the Tennyson end but correctly segregated.
This leaves ample room for 2500 home fans +.This would maybe create a very atmospheric North stand for the more boisterous lads.
There could be a sectioned off area in the main stand of 100 seats max for away season ticket holders or for those who struggle to stand.
These measures would be permanent so everybody home and away knows the score .Lynn would still be able to cater for more home fans if needed.
People just need to pull their heads out of  their bums and get things moving or we as a club are going one-way .

Yes, I would agree, that would be a reasonable crowd split

Away fans are a must and the more the better as they create the buzz everybody knows that.Equally they should be segregated and catered for correctlyI.Its the powers that run our clubs job to get our support at a steady 2.500 every game.
It's really not rocket science how to achieve this.

On that basis we should have sold 4200 tickets to Southend...their following is 7000.......that would have added even more to the buzz and still left enough for the 800 Lynn fans

Please don't accuse any one of being "fixated" goodness talk about pot, kettle and black :laughcry: :laughcry:

The essence of what many understand is that to be a consistently effective player at full time level, you need to be reasonably strong on the ball and from time to time you need to be able to hold off a player when needed. This doesn't imply a foul or anything ugly.......just a combination of good core strength and general strength, allied to reasonable pace. Anyone who doesn't possess these attributes will stand out, because they are regularly picking themselves off the floor, being run or shouldered off the ball and often a yard or two off the pace of the game.

Last season that was happening to many in the squad......last Saturday I am very pleased tosay, it wasn't.

Also in IC's words....the crowd at The Walks has driven us on to where we are now or similar........which given the emphasis Southend have put on their crowd making the difference on Saturday begs an important question  :

Do you limit the away support and put more emphasis on giving the team the benefit of feeling they have got a passionate home crowd( who outnumber the away support) behind them...or do you sell out and  partly sacrifice home advantage for immediate cash.

I see Wealdstone's ticket allocation to Southend, when Southend visit The Vale is set at 800. All tickets sent to the Southend club, for them to give out before the game.

No ticket sales for any fans on matchday

Yes, it is a major concern..........but what can we do..........the sums involved are vast and without a decent Cup run and a Commercial Director to get a couple of major sponsors on board or a complete sell out to someone extremely rich, it's difficult to see the situation improving.

I have just decided to stay in the moment and enjoy each matchday when it comes............hurrah my Southend match programme has just come through the door !

I know it doesn't make things easier......but we aren't the only NL club struggling a bit behind the scenes :

What a huge employer a full time club is:


IC, Bazza,Backie , first team coach, plus guys overseeing Academy and younger sides

19 players

Physio, Analysts, Kitman, Groundsmen, Stadium Manager, Health and Safety Guy, Commercial Director , Media and website people, Zoe, Club Secretary, Transport People, Bar and hospitality staff, stewards and security, PA announcer, cleaners plus volunteers for turnstiles, programmes, raffles etc

I am sure I have missed a few too...could be in excess of 50 people.

No idea, who else could be promoted to that role or would want to be.....pretty demanding...maybe SC can go back to his second best candidate from interview.

Only people I am aware of being in admin/ management type roles at club are Zoe, who I have found to be efficient and helpful and the media crew. Btw I like the club website...looks professional and on the times I have used seems to work well. Desperately trying to be positive, but internally something appears not to be harmonious.

Do you know of any obvious candidates Mall ?

Bet the Southend fans lapped that up..... overall my impression was that they were a pretty decent bunch

Well behind the scenes and away from the squad, I have to say everything appears to be in pretty good shape at the club.......I am sure I will have that confirmed when I get to read the Southport programme, which I ordered on Thursday, paying £2 postage. Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow so I can read after work......have to say, excitement is beginning to mount now..........
