No shame in going down to a narrow opening day defeat against a Club the size of Sarfend.  Imagine being a Barnet fans this evening.

As for the gate.   I donít see it as a V to SC.  More the fact the fans of a certain age might feel unsure about being in a stadium with 2,500 others.  Plus in the last 12 months people will be in the habit of doing other things of a Saturday afternoon.

It might take a while to build the home support back up.  Think itís crucial to get the Clubs PR machine crank up to deliver.

Donít get the vitriol against SC.  Heís the major part of why weíre now at this level !  Keep the faith.  But I do think we badly need creative midfielders and genuine goal scorers.  Still believe, and will accept the flack for it, that in a team that can get men up in numbers, therefore creating openings, Marriott or Southwell would retrieve their eye for goalÖ.. ??!!

 No Vitriol here  You're entitled to your spin Mallard.  Falls short of the much lauded 4000 + gate. Has the bubble
finally burst.  Please discuss. :cheers:

Just as well we signed Linton with Morias now off-pitch for the next 3 games.

Anyone heard anything re King.

Personally thought the midfield looked on paper a little lightweight.

If Lynn are running with a squad of 19 incl Fleming and Gascoigne and with Jones still recovering, then the remaining 16 need to be fit and available whenever possible, because that is the 11 and the 5 subs with no room for manoeuvre.

Poor attendance nothing to do with covid  I'm afraid it's to do with apathy towards the pricing and the poor marketing of the game.A creative midfielder is a must Clunan was busy but needs help and  the sending off was stupid from our lad.

I really did think we would be 4000 there today. Really surprised we missed that figure by a country mile.   :dontknow:

Donít forget to factor in Marcus we are smack bang in the middle of the holiday season plus with so many millions having been furloughed over the last 18 months then expendable money is not as free as perhaps it once was.

Sure maybe a few have baulked at the prices SC has set but I feel the answers are more wide spread than just that.

2683 attendance. Massive V Sign to SC?  :cheers:

Well what does one expect when one hikes up the price of everything!

Will anyone take note.....I very much doubt it.

So more Southend supporters than linnets there.
I thought you were supposed to try to attract your local community supporters.

As I said to my mate today if you charge the highest price then you have to deliver the best experience. I had to find  my own seat as the stewards didn't have a clue and the hospital end gate wasn't even fully open at the end lol the tannoy sounded knackered...I think Phil Browns suit cost more than our match day operations

Fair enough Mallard, but why would someone think they can increase prices on what is not an essential item, when they are fully aware that people have been furloughed and money is not as free as it once was? Surely that would point to a price decrease being required rather than an increase.

If people are put off by fear of Covid, or the price, surely there's a course of action that could be taken for both problems. 

Do you think any demographic research has been performed prior to prices being fixed?

Ifs that's the case Mall then why would you then set the prices so high and try to get blood out of a stone.

I recently read up about a certain person's past dealings and must say I weren't very impressed!
