"fissures in the fanbase"?, is there F**K, just a small minority of size obsessive fantasists :facepalm:
To have a pre season review that spends half it's column inches giving air to a minority soapbox over a non-football related matter that won't even open this season is just bollox. Clearly the author is, or is acting as a mouthpiece for, a chippy 'anti'.
Whitewashes over our signings, our unbeaten pre-season and our feelings that a corner has been turned. Utter guff :thumbdown:
It is a football related matter if it has a negative effect on season ticket sales, and attendances generally, which will impact on our playing budget.X Isle":17z6wlnm said:Yes it does Chris, it has no place in his article.
When did the building of a stand 15-18 months in the future ever have anything to do with the prospects of 11 men on a football pitch over a season?
To give 50% over to negative minority propaganda makes it utter guff as a meaningful article to be taken seriously.
On the other hand it could be a neutral observer highlighting a genuine issue which could impact on our attendances and playing budget. Time will tell. Given the general optimism generated by Sheridan's appointment and subsequent player recruitment, allied to the cut-price season tickets an increase in our attendances should be expected. The stand issue is the only negative influence I can think of.The Doctor":ma5krcnv said:
