    21-November 10 - Happy Birthday rvr :)

  2. I like the away (white) kit as well. However, I got word from the Nike rep that there's no 3XL size available. I haven't gained or lost weight in five years, but I have to go up one size with Nike's jerseys. Thus, I may be SOL. I may ask (Digitalis) or someone else to see if a good word can be put in for us larger fans to have a jersey to wear. rvr
  3. Good luck on the new venture, Darter. Being closer to the working ground there should be an adventure. rvr

Yes. The ends justify the means, in a way. Just trying to think about this at a different angle. Thanks for the input. rvr

(Understanding that it is a guarded secret, I'm still curious to know.) not sure if I'm getting you rvr but if you are asking me what impact additional monies for new players at certain points of the season can bring....then the answer is plenty and big style...we signed 3 players (and broke the budget which created a loss on the year) after xmas which changed our season and took us into the play offs.. afcw had a cat in hells chance of winning the play offs in ryman prem last season with a very poor 10 grand a week squad and terry brown knew that so he went out and spent 3 grand a week on 4 loan players 4 weeks before the end of the season which transformed his play off squad...those loan players won the play offs for him...they have all but one since left.... Yes, that's where I'm getting at, for the most part. Is it wiser to spend the money early or start low and then add as needed? But one part of the question that I'm not sure you can answer (without security clearance) would be the percentage of players' salaray from one season to the next or from five years ago from your sources' clubs. If a club of EUFC's size has increased its players' salary budget 5 percent a year over a 3-to-5 year span, how has that translated into the final results on the pitch? I hope that clarifies some of it. rvr

I'll step in here really quick to ask a question to UU (Unc): Do any of your sources know or can gather how much more money they've added into their player's salary structure over the past couple of years and how has it translated to the play on the pitch? (Understanding that it is a guarded secret, I'm still curious to know.) The one thing that hasn't been told to us is where the players' budget started at in the beginning of the 07/08 season. If it grew with loaned players and other additions, that's fine. But where was the starting point? That would be good to know, because then it is possible to vote on the players' budget point now and have an idea of where it could go in January and beyond. rvr

Just had a quick play with the graph you posted rvr - and the way I read it, MyFC are a LONG way under the four teams you compared... Occasionally climbing above WHU, but mostly below all the others. I agree, PatMan, that Alexa is a bit hard to read, but it is one site where you can do a comparison to double check. I've used it (here in the U.S.) many times to double check some sites' accuracy. Dom, Where did MyFC get the numbers and figures about hits above some Premiership and CC Championship clubs? Or, to be more specific, who provided them? rvr
  11. From Alexa.com... I picked MyFC, ManU, Aston Villa, West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur's sites for traffic hits/rank. Link to results Just from this, I'd like to known, as a MyFC member, where they got their numbers from... rvr
  12. PatMan, You can do a search through - http://www.alexa.com/ - which I believe is how some people have arrived at their numbers. It isn't the most reliable tracker, but it is close enough to give you an idea. rvr

In a way, to get the kids to come, you have to give them something else to do there as well as see the game. I just finished covering several high school state tournaments and one of the tourneys had something just like what I described. It was packed with kids.

  15. Sorry to jump in like this, but I have to throw in my two cents... 1. The video - Unless you've paid your 10 quid to get the Hi-Def version and the added material, the free matches are f'n hard to see. I honestly believe the player stinks and I've had my new-ish computer freeze up on me trying to watch one of the 90-minute matches. Tough to even watch the video under those circumstances, let alone get enough info from them to 'pick the team' for the next match. 2. Picking the team - In all honesty, only 6-7,000 people are voting in any of the polls, so why is anyone surprised that only 1-1 1/2 percent of the MyFC members are voting on the team selection? Everything has moved too fast and it seems to me that there wasn't enough time to get everything "beta tested" before we were up and running EUFC. That's understandable, but to still force "pick the team" onto the club now would be suicide.
