Thousands ? Tens of thousands? or more ?

I would hazard a guess at enough to pay the extra travel costs for the season.  :bus:

I see the Chairman says he's very pleased with what he got from Peterborough, c'mon you guys on here who know all about players budgets and salaries,how much did we get for FBT ?


I would go with a good whack if the chairman is happy with it?  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Kerins went at the end of the season, when his contract was up.

Do people feel we need another keeper to push Pedro or is the feeling we can rely on Bastock as backup ?


I think we are fine the way we are,we have Bastock and maybe a reserve keeper for the lesser games to give Pedro a break. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Canít believe the food and drink make much of the substantial sum the club need to acquire.  Sponsorship and competitions are easily the main answers.  The food thing always amazes me - have a burger at home before you come, if you want one...


A well used bar on a match day would actually bring in quite a healthy sum of money,been to some away games and there have been up to 5 staff behind the bar. At the Stourbridge game the bar was full troughout the game,and they were serving from a shed as well. :cheers:

So does the season ticket not get you free entry to the reserves and youth games this season? If I have an afternoon at the football with the family just getting through the gate will cost me an extra £30! :bankrupt:

Agreed About pedro he's like the steve lewis of today definitely one that hopefully will be around for a while yet all keepers have bloopers but he can be class!

Think most on here have the right ideas, genuinely believe it's most important to keep gash & marriott still think these two can cause a lot of problems in the next league.

What about that Jake reed at lowestoft Seemed to score for fun last year at one point he had 14 goals in 12 games.

definitely need to shore up the defence somehow, & not convinced the midfield is strong enough to battle against some of these northern teams who will leave you battered and bruised but we'll see. Leave it in Ian's capable hands & look forward to announcements!

 :cup2: :cup2:
I agree that we need more grunt in the middle.


Quigley type player who is not afraid to mix it. :comeon:

Is this all a little  hasty? Carried away by the promotion success etc , why is the club making these announcements so soon? Surely they would have needed more time to review the likely squad structure, and what that will cost prior to this. It is almost certain they have only just got back to the ground after the wonderful occasion in Warrington and much number crunching remains incomplete. Positive , it may be, but the message is wrong, and a concern.
The "message is wrong:" what do you mean?


putting the price up was going to happen whether we won or not. :bankrupt:

All the moaning, all the ideas, Its the same at the end of every season, do this ,do that. The price is to much, the beer is to much, the food is rubbish.   If you don't like it , then DONT GO!


If you don't like reading discussions on those subjects then simply don't read them,all debate is healthy? And no matter who we are or our differing opinions most people are of the same basic opinion,facilities and services at the club need improvement? :dontknow:

Perhaps he should do a loyalty type card,like some pubs and car washes do? Collect x amount of stamps an get the next game free,or half price? :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Prices seem fair enough to me. The seats always used to be £2 more than the terraces so that's reasonable, although obviously quite a jump. A season ticket looks a good deal and as I rarely miss a home game will probably invest in one.


Is it 2 free games with a season ticket? :dontknow:

Anybody unhappy with the increases has little thought for the chairman who is putting his hand in his pocket week in week out to provide us a good entertaining squad


It is actually his business,he knew when he got the club from Buster it would make little to no profit the way it is, if he doesn't invest he won't keep his customers happy,and many are not happy over one thing or another. :dontknow:

Gris, just because yours are the only suggestions it doesnít make them viable or acceptable.  Anyone can come up with glib suggestions which in my view is exactly what you appear to have done. I might be wrong, you might well have detailed plans, costings, viability and feasibility studies all prepared together with projected revenue returns so you can present this to Cleeve for him to consider. I wonder how you classify the ďmentalityĒ reference in your post.  It is not a state of mentality it is a matter of fact. No one is insisting or forcing you spend your money in any particular way, the choice is yours. Moaning about admission charges or the cost of drinks and food within the ground is not getting you anywhere and whatever you say or do is not going to change it.  Just give it a rest.

I think you will find on a different thread that some figures had been quoted for solar panels,and it was by someone in the business?

And no I won't give it a rest. :watching: :watching: :watching:

Why on earth would I have a problem with you Gris.  I couldnít care less who you are or what you do and I only comment on what you post on here.  Where I live is irrelevant. Youíre always moaning about costs and itís about time you gave it a rest.  If you donít like it then no one is compelling you to spend on something you think overpriced.  Some people like you might well cease their support, thatís to be expected, but if the club does well, then in my view the gate will increase.  Success costs money and unless supporters pay for it then we are going nowhere. Relying solely on sponsors and hair-brained ill thought-out fund raising schemes is for fantasists.

Please enlighten as to which fund raising schemes you find hare brained and ill thought out?As has been pointed out solar power could be a way forward,and the beer cans maybe could have been a little tongue in cheek,but even that would raise more than any other suggestion we have seen? See the if you don't like it don't go mentality still exists,it has already killed off the bar and increased sales at the Napier,and I notice you said if the club goes well? :dontknow:
