Thatís the problem with sole ownership.  One person decides the fate of many.  Many felt we should have taken the 12 point deduction and not lumbered the club with over half a million debt, but itís done now.
Thing is would fans still stayed away if we was on -12 points ?? Would we of been able to attract the type of players we have ? I understand some view of admission £ but I cant see how weíve lost 1000 fans say because off that , tbh Iíve been disappointed by our 2 home game attendances  I honestly thought easily 3k each game but what will Wealdstone, Dover be ? Wrong side of 1500 Iíd say !

Our next three home games are:

Dagenham and Redbridge

Wealdstone

Barnet

The first game is live on BT Sports, so although its against the League leaders, it will probably have an impact on the gate. I don't believe Dagenham supporters are renowned for travelling to away games in great numbers anyway.

The second game is Wealdstone, who have seen a big increase in average home gates since last season, but have played both Woking and Southend.  I don't believe Wealdstone supporters travel in any great numbers when playing away either  :dontknow:

Barnet game is on a Tuesday night. The dreaded Tuesday night away game, so I really can't see a lot of travelling supporters for that one.

I would expect that Lynn supporters will well out number visiting supporters for all three games, but really wouldn't be surprised if the average gate for the three games is well short of the 1500 Bluboy mentions.

Time will tell.

Time to get the Media machine out there promoting the games as hard as they can!

If the first 2 home games were a measure against admission cost versus value for money and a great matchday experience then I'm afraid it's an epic fail both for home and away fans.

It's simple really! If you're winning fans will pay the cost what ever that cost may be. If you're losing people will stay away and won't pay a high price for a ticket. A dedicated fan fan will pay  regardless of results and ticket prices. Lets face it, how many football clubs make money or break even. Sponsorship is the key in many ways. Just my opinion.

First home game against a top side after a year of no live football ...what's the excuse for the poor turnout  then ?
Start of the season so loyal fans would be in abundance wouldn't they !

Maybe a bit like the perfect storm.

Lynn have a large number of older fans.  Who maybe donít feel comfortable in being in a stadium with a lot of people.

People havenít been attending football for maybe 18 months so the Ďhabití is no longer there and have found other things to occupy their Saturday afternoons.

Also I have heard and read of several people who will longer pay the admission fee and no longer thinks itís value for money.

SC can bang on about people needing  to pay a higher price if they want this standard of Football but if the punters arenít buying into his Ďdreamí then he has a problem to get them back on side.

Lynnís big gates come when they are fighting at the top of the table.  Maybe the Chairman thinks that an average team at Step one will only bring in around 1,000 home fans.

Just an opinion.  What do others think

I would have to stay away simply because I cannot afford it. Really sad but this is the reality.

It wasn't meant to be correcting  the spelling, more to point out that the name of the sponsor is Rounce and not Runce. I'm sure that kind of thing is important to the owner Luke, who I have known for 30 years.
