This is not intended as a dig at them but, what a boring meeting!!!!!!
Jeff and his gang will get on just fine there, the place has no atmosphere, the supporters have no personality and nobody would dare challenge Jeff and his crowd in anyway.
Lovely facilities but they cant fill them, the bar is not used and the local community do not seem to support the social club.
They have come up with a really creative idea to drag the local community into the social club Bingo!
One guy suggested he had met his wife at a singles club and maybe they could have a singles night.
150 people there tonight, great cooking facilities only somebody forgot to tell "the chef" so there was no food.
They are only allowed to have the ground on certain days because the athletics club has priority and therefore are only allowed three pre season friendlies.
They wasted an opportunity, they had a new manager and their whole board infront of them and there was not one moment of controversy, dissent or even a slightly awkward question.
I learnt a lot from chatting to some of the supporters much of which it is best not post here.
They have only one player under contract, Jeff will be bringing his "whole backroom team and a number of players".
He has a players budget as Manager, he and his first team coach can get more "if they generate the income".
There will be no seat on the board or control over anything other than first team.
They have ambitions of developing their youth side and "expect players to come through" (that will be interesting).
I wish them luck, seemed a nice enough bunch, give me Park Lane and Yellow Army any day, our facilities are nowhere near as good, but at least we have atmosphere.
The council own the ground and will not even allow a barbecue in the summer!!!
