Fans Forum   Message 46779Thu, 31 May 2018 16:05  Go to next message

When was the last time the club had a fans forum? Seems a long time ago to me. If there were constructive comments from both sides, I think this would help the connect between the management and the fans. What are the clubs realistic aims for next season? I appreciate the club want to keep within a budget, but can they compete at the top end of the table? Whatever the management do I hope they get in an experienced strong centre back to improve on the shambles in this area last season.
p.s.
Would not surprise me if Royston (on I assume is a limited budget) are challenging for the top next season.

Royston is a very small town ( 15,000 ish pop ), so I would assume they are heavily financed from an external source to be able to compete at this level.

Certainly the year they ran away with the League, to get to the Premier, they were littered with players from leagues above, and it showed!!

Unless there have been big changes, I expect them to continue in the same vein!!

Also, on the subject of a Fans Forum, there have been too many false dawns, and promises, at Fans Forums to placate supporters at this present time!!

The ONLY way to recover a glimmer of former glories is to put a decent, consistent, reasonably well drilled and coached!! side on the playing field.

I HAVE CONSISTENTLY SAID THAT EVERYTHING REVOLVES AROUND WHAT HAPPENS ON THE PITCH!!


Then, and ONLY then, will supporters respond/return in the way that the Club would wish!!!!

I live in hope!!!!!!!!

COME ON YOU YELLOWWSSAA!!

Royston will not be in our league next season.

Yes Royston will be in the midland section, but the points made in the thread will still be the same!!

They certainly are. Their well-heeled owner pops in £120k+ a year and has been doing so for a long time.

Fair play to him, he could have spunked the same amount a year to be a member of Wentworth GC, but prefers to spend his money to benefit his local club.

I've no problem with genuine benefactors helping their local club. I do, however, have a big problem with those who claim this when the facts show they're just spending other people's money and have no intention of reimbursing them.

Certainly agree, and Farnborough F.C/Town has had more than it's fair share of them over the years!!

Is it any wonder there is scepticism among supporters????????
