Name and shame
« on: October 11, 2021, 08:49:27 AM »
I see  S.Cleeves twitter feed was red hot yesterday after he publicly named and shamed an 18 year old Lynn fan for buying an under 16s ticket.

Apparently 109 people have replied to the Chairman's Twitter post with many being critical of it.

He is an amazing   character.   Just a few days ago he arranges a meeting with the fans to try and curb the growing feeling of unhappiness with so many things that is seemingly going wrong at the club.  To the manís credit he holds his hands up to say yes there are issues and wants to work to put them right.

Then in EDP he goes on a full frontal attack on a Youth set up in the Town that has been around long before anyone had ever heard of the name Cleeve.

Now we see a name and shame on a young supporter.

PR at the club is really something else.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

I have to say that I don't really understand what angle he is coming from with the EDP article on Saturday, or more to the point, what he is really hoping to achieve with it.

I'm surprised that the people at the EDP even gave it column space!

It surprised me that the EDP gave all those column inches to one manís rant on what was basically a non story.   Very strange.

We appear to be building up a very poor reputation amongst other clubs fans at the moment going by all the comments online.

Exactly what we said on the terraces on Saturday, as much as it is clear relations are strained with the Council, this is hardly likely to help the relationship

I am not really sure the EDP care about what is written as it is a feature article by a guest contributor so SC probably has a fair degree of autonomy in terms of topics and content - basically column inches filled for little effort.

As for the Twitter storm, whilst SC may have had a valid point about a supporter 'underpaying', there are a number of ways to address this sort of issue and I would say posting on Twitter wouldn't have been my first choice!

I wouldn't put anything past Cleeve, the shameful thing is all he does is blame others.. The man is a clown when it comes to engaging with the public (as we know) and his latest stunt has backfired spectacularly.

The worrying thing is... I imagine there is more to come and likely worse.

Lets pray for a Saudi Arabian to come to our aid....

Not so sure on that one Blue. I think he may have been thinking of doing so but was advised against it due to GDPR.

And here we are  thinking it couldn't get any worse, although I guess there are still a couple at the Club praying for another "White Knight".

Apparently there's always someone around to take on that role!
