There will be a bucket collection for Ryan at Saturdays home game, following his knee surgery last week.

If attending PLEASE give generously  :scarf:

Firstly, may I say I am not a kill-joy or stingy - I have donated to 4 Pitch Squares, put £20 in the Pitch Covers and regularly buy 2 50/50 tickets and have a Season Ticket.

There seems to be a distinct lack of information about players and their injuries. Yes, we know Ryan Fryatt has been out injured for some time but hardly a mention of what happened, what the actual problem is, what treatment or operation and how he is progressing. Also what hardships he is suffering due to his injury.

Yet a bucket is to be passed around to collect donations. For what reason  :dontknow:

If we were to be given much more information and some background factors there might be more sympathy and generosity.

If someone came up to you in town and put a bucket under your nose you would want to know what its all about - I doubt you would just throw money into the pot without a reason.

Have to agree with this especially if the football club are still paying his wages,which we don't know.As regards the injury Culverhouse said in one of his recent post match interviews he had an operation on his knee.

I guess as he is going to be off work 5/6 weeks with a "football injury" this is to help him financially and as he is one of our own. But everyone to their own!

I thought Ryan was on contract so presume he is still receiving his wages. Plus Insurance money against injury and maybe SSP.  Think the Club should advise of any hardship the lad
Is suffering with.  Just to put it out there that a bucket collection is taking place does seem a bit random.

Mark ?

Ryan has paid for the operation on his knee to repair cartilage damage  himself, which wasn't cheap I hasten to add,  and has also had to have time off from his full time job for the operation  and other appointments. Following almost nine years service to the football club we felt a collection to assist Ryan would be looked upon favourably .....

There, that wasn't hard was it?

Ryan has been a good servant to the Club and it is at times like this that help can be asked for and given - If we know why.

I keep telling my manager "Don't tell me to do something - Give me a reason why as well and I am more likely to do the job without moaning and telling you to FO".

It is not "Jump" and expect me just to jump without knowing why.

Thanks for the update Mark, my sentiments exactly hence I posted as I did. I hope our "supporters" support, Ryan has been outstanding for the club and was building a great relationship with Rory until injured and IMO has been missed.  :scarf:

Going private for an Op isnít cheap.  I guess the waiting list on NHS would have been months.   

Hope the bucket collection raises a good few quid for the lad.  Mark, couldnt the Club put on some kind of fund raiser to help Ryan as well ?  After all he was injured giving his all for the Club?  Now you are full time Iím sure you would have the time to put a little something together.

That's not a bad idea. Club and Supporters doing something together!

How about a draw for a VIP day for two, signed shirt etc?

 :scarf:

Other suggestions?

Nothing against Ryan at all but I would hope Mark has better things to do with his time and any 'money raising ideas' have to go to the club first and foremost.  Maybe if an individual fan wanted to do something along the lines suggested by B&G then fair enough that would be between them and Ryan but the club is clearly short of volunteers to run it's 'own' fundraising at present. 

I personally don't think the club should be drawn into raising money for individual players as where do you set the bar on 'deserving cases'?  For example, Michael Clunan has been out for a good while now too.

That is a fair point to make.

Also, do we know that any financial help is required any way?

Surely a semi professional footballer has an income protection policy in place, and likewise with the Club, they have a hospital/medical plan in place for such a valuable asset as Ryan!  :dontknow:
