Main concern ought to be working out how to keep the MyFC membership at least at it's present level for the good of the club...

Myfc membership number is close to 8800 at present.
Renewal ratios is extremely low..not over 20% I recon.

Do not kid yourselves regarding the future..come February Myfc membership numbers WILL be very low indeed.

As stated by the club accountant..Myfcs present setup isn´t going to be able to bankroll the club for much longer.

In which case I would hope there is some very serious head scratching going on within MyFC as to what to do next to remedy the situation...

Sorry, just wanted to clear this issue. SAFC is not run by that person.

Thanks,

Agreed.

I also fail to see what relevance Safc has to anything connected with eufc.

Surely,for people involved with..and supportive of Eufc..there must be much more burning issues to concentrate on other than a club like safc?

Get your facts straight for once Gaz! tsk!

A Fitness Coach left. We have other sponsors who have fully funded Southill Alexander and the gate for the game two saturdays ago, this saturdays (just gone) was postponed due to Biggs Town having priority with a cup game. The gate was actually much higher at 16! Believe it or not this is reasonable at step 7, some step 6 clubs regularly have gates as low as 3 or 4.

I hear your lot run out of money end of December Gazum. What are you going to do then?

Well, wherever we end up, I'm pretty certain we'll have more than 16 spectators at a game...

Of course you will Fleetzone, you are a club with a history going back to the 1890s. Most of the people of Gravesend and Northfleet know where you are by now and about 700 manage to toddle out of their beds on a saturday.

Good luck to you.

Is it true that your owners are currently discussing sacking Liam Daish?

When I played in the North Kent sunday league (many moons ago) our average gate was around 30-40.
The few Kent amateur league games I played in (level 7?) attracted over 50 per game.
Must be Bedfordshire that doesn't like watching football.According to your mate Clawd, we run out of cash last spring. Funny, we are still going.
No denial about the departure of your financial guru, then?
Not many untruths then in my post.
Assistant coach = fitness coach
Attendance 12 = 16
Moneybags goes = moneybags goes.

Well good for you Gazum, you played football once upon a time. We had 30 or so to a couple of games so we are doing nearly as well as you did once upon a time.

So the "owners" at MyFC do not currently have a discussion going on where they openly admit that the club will be insolvent before the New Year? Maybe you will find your own "Moneybags" to save you?

I called Tony Armitage "Assistant Coach" once and he very firmly denied the title saying that he was just a "Fitness Coach", you'll have to take it up with him. Anyway, he left, did a good job for us, no doubt about it.

Just a quick question on attendances. Apparently Blue Square Prenier attendances are up 24% year on year. Have Ebbsfleet United seen this sort of increase this year? Lovely lolly if its the case!

I don't thin, our gates are particularly lower than last year.
The overall average has increased due the likes of Wrexham, Luton, afc Wimbledon and Kettering . Added to this both Oxford and Cambridge are showing increases. All this affects the league average.
I'm not a member of myfc as you know Gordon, so I'm not privy to their discussions.
That said, it's unlikely that Daish will be sacked - few teams would be prepared to pay off 18 months on a contract.

But some of your games were getting attendances in the 1300-1400s last season Gazum, this year I hear you are down to 700-800 while as you say others are showing increases. Obviously a big club like Luton with gates of 7,000 or so (ten times Ebbsfleet) will up the overall average.

Calls for Daish to be sacked, club running out of money, the Operator of MyFC Ltd looking to get out as quickly as possible. It doesn't look good and here you are, comparing a little club like Southill Alexander with your woes, hardly bears thinking about.

As I said, you worry about your club (big worries) and I'll worry (small worries) about mine.

You seem to spend too much time doing your worrying on a Fleet forum.
I guess you need an audience.
Myfc may or may not pull out. Whatever.
Won't be the end of the world.
Take Luton , Championship to Conference in short time, yet they remain optimistic.
Liam may get sacked, he may quit. Managers come and go.
That's football.
Fleet will continue.
We have no debt, and ground security for a millenia.

Your posting on here Gaz, seemed like you wanted a response. Yet you claim to have no knowledge of MyFC, you clearly have no knowledge of Southill and you are posting on a thread called MyFC/Southill Members.

Glad we sorted your debt out for you. You know, MyFC have much in common with Southill, neither own their grounds, neither have debt. But there the similarity ends, Southill have plenty of money, Ebbsfleet nearly insolvent. Etc, etc, etc...

Maybe we'll meet you coming down as we go up. One day. OO-ER, doesn't bear thinking about. You are better off trolling on your own forum Gazum, you can even delete the posts you don't like. Which you do.

Stick to your own worries Gazum.

You keep banging on about no debt. That may well be true in as much as the bank account is positive. But that is only part of the story. The club has outgoings way in excess of its incomings, so it is only a matter of time (Dec) that you will have debt. Without the guarantees of someone like BK I doubt if the bank will allow an overdraft. As I have said before I fail to understand your animosity. We have only ever been concerned that certain people would trouser a fat wedge in the meantime leaving the long term fan in the lurch. That has indeed happened and yet you still want to pick a fight with the messenger.
