He did well at Brentford so maybe being back in London would settle him down a bit

Afternoon all. As per a conversation last week, it's very easy to forget to reply to just one email sent ten days before the next game....

Not everyone follows everything the club does during the rest of the week
He'd probably be the biggest signing we've ever made (on paper)

They aren't, the size of Kingsmeadow is. Nevermind.

Also a bit selfish to other fans isn't it? Not everyone can afford a season ticket, or is in a position to regularly attend matches. Why deny these fans the opportunity to watch their team at home?

Really believe this lad could be a superb signing however it's been a really strange one regards media announcing it before us
Literally takes a minute to reply to an email and let them know. Really not that out of order for Erik to tell everyone to get their shit together

We wouldn't have a carpet of a pitch now (for better or worse) if it weren't for women's football. Tend to agree with Square Nut about Fuller - see my previous post suggesting he is used as an impact substitute wing back. The moral was missed off that post - it went something like Barry has been great servant for the past few years, and I guess hell end up at a L1/conference club where he could still contribute massively for a season or three. Whatever happens, he will always be up there in the AFC Wimbledon Hall of Fame.

Is Spit the Dog one and the same as Salad or have I misinterpreted HHW's post?
I know it may be a shock to some, and perhaps my view is slightly nave, but all ST holders presumably want the club to do as well as it can, they have after all made a significant financial commitment by buying their ST in the first place. We are struggling financially in this division whilst we try to fund a new stadium. I don't think it is too much to ask ST holders to send an email to the club if they can't attend so that the club can raise valuable extra cash from their seat. No one is being forced to do anything, but it seems like a no brainer for any committed fan and ST holder to help the club generate more funds, simply by typing one word and pressing Send when they receive an email from the club.

The Development Squad (not a bunch of rappers BTW) are away to Hackney Wick in the LSC. Look forward to seeing Papers shanking the local mandem. Blud. 😉 [Link]

No Russ that's not the point-by all means sell as many STs as you can. Then take the problems that come with it on the chin.

Not sure if I'll get written to having missed one game in each of the last three seasons but I'll neither be offended nor take any notice of the letter if it does arrive.

The club shouldn't have sold them a ST in the first place so that there were more tickets on the day.

damned if you do, damned if you dont..
Yes it's lazy of them not to tell the club . But sorry to my mind they've paid enough to escape a telling off . I'd have more sympathy if we were staying at KM for the foreseeable but in two years we will have hundreds if not thousands of empty seats regularly and pissing people off now might not be the best strategy to fill these

Erik might be better off talking to Neal Ardley about a failure to put bums on seats.

With regards season tickets, I can't remember the last home game that I missed other than when on holiday in early August sometimes, but my son does miss the odd game and I always either let the club know in advance or hand his ticket in at the window. It should be easier enough to let the club know by phone or email in advance.

That's if there was an organised league anyway. If there wasn't one, then all the games would've been friendlies or novelty charity matches.

The way I see it, if we are playing in the Ryman league and getting sub 3000 gates, getting people to buy season tickets has to be a clever marketing strategy. But in League 1 where seat tickets (when there are any for sale that is) seem to go within a day of going on sale, why push to sell more season tickets for them? People that live miles away and come to the odd game on their season ticket, contribute zero atmosphere and buy zero pints of beer while sitting on their front room couch!

I'd like to see attendance figures for women's league games before they were banned. Not very high I would guess.

I find the continued berating of season ticket holders by both club and fans quite sickening actually . The people that invest the most time and money in the club are now getting a snotty letter asking them why they went on holiday and didn't let the club know . Sell less season tickets in the seated areas then and you'd have no empty seats . Oh but then we'd lose money . Cake and eat it spring to mind

Large crowds attended Women's football games well before the Great War, especially after it was banned in Scotland following trouble at some games. Popularity of all sports waxes and wains - look at Greyhound Racing, if that was ever a sport!

Anyway, us men are stronger and faster than women, so that makes us better (PS these views are not those of the author, in case my daughter is reading - she will biff me one!)
I like the 'stars of the development squad' video. Might only be a minute long but it suggests there's a cadre coming through the ranks with a genuine camaraderie...

...which is not something that strikes me about the first XI at the moment :-(
Kyle - That's what I was thinking a little.
