The rumours were about a meeting on the 14th, not an announcement. However, things have gone very quiet in regards to that. Hopefully this will be their last forum.

What's David Holdsworth doing there. He may be 'Director of Football' but he's not a club director surely.

Spoke to a fella who was on the committee at Gretna the other day and he was very surprised by some of his claims about his time at Gretna FC. :cheer:

At the very least is a chance to have a go at the custodians. Not holding my breath for them saying adios or anything that will change the club or give it a future other than them continuing to kill it off. But I will be there with fingers crossed that I'm wrong.

Surely something has to be announced or said at this if they're all going to be present. Rumours like an announcement on the 14th of Sept, as well as EWM's FD now on our board, Holdsworth obviously being brought in by PD and Clibbens going missing recently. All this has got to add up to something hasn't it? Or am I getting my hopes up?

It certainly in my wildest, optimistic dreams sounds like a full changing of the guard with a date being given at the forum - they should say "in 5-10 days" to give the room a laugh.

I heard from a bloke who was talking to another bloke toady that the EWM takeover is a done deal. No more Nixon, Pattison, Kidd or Clibbens very shortly. Only Jenkins staying on in some honorary role.

I’ve heard similar rumours but taking them with a pinch of salt because...

Why would they, old owners to be, agree to a fans forum the day before a takeover. It’s not like there going to get any thanks for anything just a slaughter.

At least we’re not Stockport

I think this forum is getting near the last chance for the club to reach out and engage the fans. You just have to look at the football news and views this week to see that only fully engaged community clubs are going to survive the next few years.

There has been more talk this week from pundits advocating feeder clubs in the lower leagues. The Premier League doesn't give a fig about football fans in general and lower league ones in particular. They just don't get that a lower league club is just as important to it's fans as Manchester United is to theirs, in fact probarbly more so, because lower league fans don't drop their club and find another when things are bad.

Any one who thinks that feeder clubs and B teams in the Leagues won't happen are deluding themselves. Unless there is a huge groundswell of fans willing to boycott and make things very difficult it will happen and it's already been proved with the Checkatrade Trophy that the groundswell isn't there.

Yesterday another cast iron rule snapped with little murmour or complaint. 3pm Saturday football was always sacrescant, no one could show live matches, now they can. It doesn't matter that the powers that be say oh, it doesn't count on an international weekend. Rubbish, next it will be it doesn't count when there's an R in the month or a zero in the date.

I can see advantages for myself, less traveling, less cost but of course big disadvantages too, I'd miss the atmosphere, particularly at away games, I'd miss the friendship, and this, I feel, is the crux of the matter.

Those clubs who connect with fans and make the matchday an experience worth the travel and hassle of getting to the ground will survive and prosper whether or not the matches are streamed live. They may even slightly improve their income with fans buying in to streaming who genuinly can't get to the match. Those clubs who provide a poor matchday experience could find their fans more and more taking the tv option at the expence of fans in the ground. Is our football club ready and able to take up the challenge?

I'm hoping IFollow brings down the match day prices if its to take off(£22 for a tin pot two game is a terrible rip off) but i doubt it. Its a good idea if done/debated right and money distributed fairly, however with the EFL there'll likely bugger it.

Footballs all about money, well the professional side, which is why its rotten as peoples morals go but i suppose its the same in all walks of live.

I think its too late for the owners to connect/engage the only thing thatll engage the supporters again is if they all go trust included. Too much has gone on . As for this forum i'll give it a miss, too busy sorting BAs shit IT systems out another company that's shit at customer service and getting anything right, and we just get fed waffle anyway.

In the same way that Premier League fans are arrogant in the way they look down on lower league fans, lower league fans aren't half arrogant in thinking Premier League clubs don't have proper fans who would support them through thick and thin. There's always going to be a floating element of a fan base; that's just life.

I think tier 4 level adults £10-£15 should be about right.

Problem is the over inflated player and police costs.

You can go to the cinema for £5 that's why i expect luxury at £22 whatever i'm watching not sitting in bird shit. With likely next season being able to watch games at home on Internet I just cant see £22 walk up fee being attractive at all, it isn't now.

It's not really the price thats the issue if you start by them taking off the highwayman's mask and scrap the 3 quid surcharge were down to 19 I say knock another quid off call it 18 and then start to create some atmosphere and crack and you might get people starting to think its value for money but Jenkins and co are more interested in pandering to pc plod and his mates rather than trying to create a bit of atmosphere.

Otherwise, do what Accy do with the loyalty card where you pay 25 quid upfront and then you get a fiver off each time you attend as well as 10% in all the retail outlets.

Funnily enough it was cinema I was thinking about. Was up at Glasgow a couple of weeks back and it was pissing down on the Sunday afternoon so looked at going to the local Odeon. Almost £12 for a adult to watch a poxy cartoon that my son wouldn’t have been bothered about so went to the bowling alley next door.

You need to get on Groupon DB 5 Odeon tickets for 25 Quid I think it is Or sign up with Reel and you get all sorts of deals but i.ve not paid more than 6 quid since i joined.

I suppose you are right, I do know and respect die hard fans of prem clubs. Just at the moment I am sick of Man U "fans" saying how they are giving up on their team. I think it's given me a false prospective.

Who's going then? I really feel it is important that folk go, if they don't it sends the message that everyone is content with how things are. Are we?

I'd quite lik to know a bit more about Holdswoth's roll. In his interview he appeared to be doing more than just the football side, so who does what, where does his role end and Clibbens start, and who ultimately is in charge, day to day, of the football club (then I know who to email when things go wrong :)).

I'd also like to know a bit more about the club's thoughts on an SLO. I know they have asked CUSG for feedback and there hasn't been a meeting but I'd like to know how the club sees this role going forward and are they really trying to bridge the gap between club and fans.

The Fan Zone doesn't appear to be getting off the ground, always advertised but nothing to see, what's that all about ?

Is the club happy to cut outgoings to the bone in an attempt to break even rather than make the effort to get fans involved and tempt them back to the club?

Plenty of others, see you there.

Didn't take it that DH was doing the football side at all so not doing "more than the football side" . He clearly said John finds the players and he does the contracts. But I had the same thought he and NCs roles seem to be verging on the very similar. However DH will have more actual player/football knowledge

Well Jenkins [ or whoever ] seems quite happy to spend god knows what on these two while at the same time running a clear policy of austerity plus to the football side of the club makes no sense whatsoever to me When did Clibbns last score a last minute winner ?

Anyone going, I intend to with fingers crossed that there is some news about major change in ownership. Other than that it’s a chance to ask the questions we all want answers too.

I'd quite lik to know a bit more about Holdswoth's roll. In his interview he appeared to be doing more than just the football side, so who does what, where does his role end and Clibbens start, and who ultimately is in charge, day to day, of the football club (then I know who to email when things go wrong :)).

I'd also like to know a bit more about the club's thoughts on an SLO. I know they have asked CUSG for feedback and there hasn't been a meeting but I'd like to know how the club sees this role going forward and are they really trying to bridge the gap between club and fans.

The Fan Zone doesn't appear to be getting off the ground, always advertised but nothing to see, what's that all about ?

Is the club happy to cut outgoings to the bone in an attempt to break even rather than make the effort to get fans involved and tempt them back to the club?

Plenty of others, see you there.


Didn't take it that DH was doing the football side at all so not doing "more than the football side" . He clearly said John finds the players and he does the contracts. But I had the same thought he and NCs roles seem to be verging on the very similar. However DH will have more actual player/football knowledge


Sorry didn't make that clear. I meant the football admin side, not the football coaching.


No no I didn't think you meant football coaching , but more identifying players, which he doesn't do either

I'll be attending, could be interesting. Went to the others so, a chance to see if anything has developed since last one.
Investment is needed - hoping for positive news.

It is a chance to ask the questions we all want answers to but the fact is very few will take the chance. For a few years now weve had fans, almost on a daily basis, moaning on here about the state of the club, how it’s being run, the board of directors, the need for change of ownership, etc, etc. Yet when the chance arises to face the people the moaning and questions should be directed at most either don’t bother turning up or go along but sitting there without saying a word. What then ensues is an easy ride for those responsible for our demise and them leaving thinking everything’s hunky dory.

Left the last forum totally frustrated at the lack of criticism towards the board and totally disillusioned with the football club as a whole. Will the most vocal amongst this board be there tonight? Will people actually bother to make the effort? Doubt it.

I agree!

For the last one there was enough people on here saying they were going to go and say this that the other but didn’t go for whatever reason. Like you I left frustrated as it was waffle and only you, me and a few others were critical.

I could of gone tonight if I really wanted but I’ve been super busy and my enthusiasms gone that I just can’t be arsed.

Hope something comes out of it but I doubt it.

At least we’re not Stockport

Mullen is spot on.This is one of the few chances to ask any question you like but you can be sure no one will raise their head above the parapet.

Steve Pattison says he wants to give out more tickets to school childlren but the tlravel and staff is the difficult part. He tlried to do a deal with lreays. He wants the club to thlrive for years to come, same as the tlrust.

Jenkins says he’s disappointed more people didn’t come to the Checkatrade game. I’m disappointed he’s still in charge of the club, hey-ho you can’t have everything I suppose.

Seems like everyone on the panel is united in thinly veiled criticism of Keith Curle.
I’m sure many on here will agree with them.
It doesn’t really do it for me.
I can’t help thinking it would be more becoming if DH gave a bit more balance to this, instead of inferring that the football side of things has been in dire straits up until he got involved. It just makes him sound like a gobshite.
