You can get a 5% discount in the club shop by joining FOTL, that will only set you back five quid.  :dontknow:

Just like to add my opinion on the matter,

Id go as far to say 80 - 90% of the behind the scene staff, St john's and the stewarding team are volunteers. Many of them put more hours in for free, that's right completely free, than many people actually work in a week. I avoid this forum for many reasons however one of the main ones is due to the constant drivel a few people speak. Constant moaning and whinging, the club cant do right from wrong. If people supported the club as much as they moan then it would be a miracle.

Could you actually point out to me exactly where people are moaning and whinging about the volunteers? :dontknow:

Griss its nit picking or why bring it up ,I sell programs so I guess I am a volunteer and I always buy a season ticket and do I get paid of course not so why do I do it you may ask I do it to help the club

Someone started a thread about backroom staff, volunteers have on this thread been complimented, nobody has actually been slagged off?

Well said Marcus some people are never happy unless they are moaning or slagging the club off

Can't actually see onn this thread where the club or volunteers are being slagged off? More of a discussion over if they get in for free or if they pay?  :dontknow:

Strange the Chairman seems to have stopped doing his podcast.   I remember we had 3 in one week.  Now not even doing one a fortnight.

Perhaps they weren't paying dividends? :bankrupt:

I have nowhere near as much know-how about the running of the club, especially the financial Hargy and bargey..
However, Im definitely in the camp, if there is one, that thinks SC is the best thing to happen to this club since Peter Tough should have been in the England squad !  No (!), the doubters might be right and we could implode, but fingers crossed for the man who bought a football club, as far as Im concerned !  Only disappointment so far is the Friendly list.  League clubs respect the standard were now in enough to appreciate that friendlies against NL clubs are serious work-outs, not friendly testimonial type games for youngsters - so I think we should have tried for a league club.  BUT, there are some good friendlies there too, so only a muted complaint.    Now we need to get this virus sorted.  Peter Tough might have the answer in his bucket !......

Talking of buckets,anyone seen Stan lately? :dontknow: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Would it be worth seeing if you can fit in another season ticket raffle before the season kicks off, I would be willing to gamble another tenner? :dontknow:

Still worth a tenner for the ground improvement fund/season ticket draw. :scarf:

The answer Griss is Napoleon Bonaparte

'Attack is the best form of defence' was coined in the USA in the 18th century. It was initially intended to be a military tactic rather than an everyday maxim.

The earliest version of it that I know of is in R. W. Gibbes' Documentary History of the American Revolution, in which he attributes this comment to a W. H. Drayton and dates it as 1775:
