Bit confused Gordon remind me what made you jump to that conclusion, perhaps in future I will stop calling moaners to gripers and I must admit they have plenty to gripe about at the moment. So what do we do about it, keep griping on here or try and do something about it and in my small way this is what I am trying to do
Moaners and now gripers. You say they have plenty to gripe about at the moment but what about the past few years! Are these people not welcome as members of the new Supporters Club or must they only be people who say yes Stephen you are right of course Stephen etc etc! Everyone has an opinion and the bull ****ers who have no intention of changing their ways just lead you further into the darkness.
I will gamble that friday will be yet another waste of 1 hour. Hopefully i will be proved wrong but i am not holding my breath.


Everyone is welcome as a member of the supporters club,and no we don't just want people who will be yes men and kiss butt!

Fans could relate with the Jarvís, Gashís etc it all felt right.   Now we are at step one then players came in from here there and everywhere.  No link up or connection with the fans.   Maybe we need to give the transition a bit longer to see if there will be a bond.

These are exactly the thoughts I'm thinking.

I'm not saying the current crop are a bunch of mercenaries, but there doesn't seem to be many who will "fight for the shirt"

Aaron Jones, when he came on yesterday acknowledged the crowd immediately and played with passion - and I didn't see that from any of the others.

I'm not saying the players play to lose, but I do question the effort to win??

As Mallard says, we loved players like Gash, Jarvis, McCauley, Fryatt, Hendo, Street - even Lee Stevenson & Dan Quigley because we felt they loved playing for the club and would always give their all.
.
The current crop may gel, but they have to understand they are in for a scrap this season.

I hope they have the desire for it

Always nice to have a beer with Mr Quigley,that guy managed to turn extreme hate into admiration. :cheers:

Just a thought,but if we get drawn at home in any of the rounds I think the price should be dropped to 15 pounds? As the club has to give a percentage away would it not be better to price low and encourage spending on incidentals? Being that the club doesn't have to share the profit on beer and food could it gain? :dontknow:

I would assume that the visiting Club would have to agree to the price reduction.

I feel it would attract a larger contingent of away supporters if the price was dropped,so a bit of an advantage for a visiting team? :dontknow:

John H you are right Marriot is history
Blimey MAH you have a short memory. 12/9/21 at 07.04.24 you were spouting from the keypad to bring back Marriott! That's the problem with computers if you don't delete previous posts they bite you on the bum.
I remember the previous supporters Club assisting bringing the likes of Danny Bloomfield to KLFC. What a signing that was, just short of 50 goals first season at the club.
I wonder if anyone out there is brave enough to actually say why they will not join the new Supporters Club. Without members you are wasting your valuable time. Could it be that in past days the Supporters Club ran the club shop where items were priced reasonably, 100 club with a £100 prize drawn at every home game,lottery bonus ball every week, away travel to most games, functions regularly in the Blue and Gold, End of season 3 day event in a marquee on the pitch of which 2 days were under the Supporters Club banner and included a players presentation day, Supporters Christmas lunch with usually 100 seated to a 3 course dinner in the Blue and Gold before the final game before Christmas, Auctions,quizzes, etc etc.


How many people organised and ran said activities,and over how many years did that social club evolve? :dontknow:

Biggest stumbling block is that people see the FOTL as an option for funding the club,everything they have done has provided something for the club! Not one thing has been done for the fans!

Some in attendance were disappointed with the turnout but I think it probably reflected where the FotL finds itself, after a season mostly without fans and attached to a club that hasn't put fan engagement at the forefront of its operations, everyone needs to accept it will take time to build up to where it was, let alone where some would like it to be.  The two hours weren't all spent discussing things the FotL can affect, although in the absence of a genuine fans forum with SC there are very few alternatives for fans vent their frustrations, even if it did mean the meeting got a bit 'off topic' at times.

In terms of moving the FotL forward, they gained a new committee member who comes on as secretary and there were constructive comments about how the profile of existing fundraising, particularly the 100 Club could be raised and a number of possible fundraising activities were suggested for the committee to consider.  Mallard, to answer you question directly, the meeting wasn't there for 'plans (to be) formulated' but a chance for the committee to engage with members and non-members alike as to how they can move forward which I think it probably achieved.  On a personal note I would hope this is the start not the end of such meetings as it is probably worth doing a couple a season - there were some good ideas from the floor and it's now down to the committee to go away and think about what they can progress and hopefully by the next open meeting they will be able to be judged on their actions as well as words.

Thanks for that Tony,I was going to post a piece myself but due to family commitments and work I hadn't got around to it. It would be nice to have regular get togethers on the same basis as I said during the evening the key to anything is communication, the FOTL in the future will be hoping to put things on in the bar,bands/disco/karaoke or whatever people would like to see. Some people would like to see a repeat of the quiz night held in conjunction with the trust that raised close to 5 hundred pounds for the ground improvement fund,these are all positives to work towards in the future,as with everything it has to begin somewhere,and that night was the start. :cheers:

Get ready for a heavily watered down pint .

Could someone attempt to explain the contempt afforded the away supporters by King's Lynn FC? Why did we have to be penned into a corner of the ground with 2/3rds of the shared open end made available to accomodate approximately 100ish Linnets.  Obviously everyone can see a solution, but hey! let's rip the away fans off for 21 quid and show them as much disrespect as possible by giving them a horrible experience..

At least for the return fixture away fans will only have to pay £18 for a good view, a seat with leg room and a humane area to despose of any excess ale.

Sorry to hear of any fans being treated in such a manner,but I do believe some steps are being taken to rectify the situation? Maybe someone from the club could clarify? :dontknow:
