They will and do, every couple of seasons it would appear, and rightly so.
Difficult for me when my 2 best mates support them and living on their doorstep as I do.

Apparently they are hoping to get over 5k for their home game with Bromley on Saturday, Bromley are top and have yet to lose so far and Yeovil have won 6 on the bounce, their fans are saying they will come back in droves for home games now after Fry left as Chairman, a man who they regard much as we do Diamanidis.

That would equate to a 110% rise on the last home attendance, it won't happen IMO.

I'm sure most of those boycotting will quickly find another reason...

Indeed, it sounds very familiar.

30,000+ Dresden Fans away at Hertha Berlin last night in the Pokal.

Unfortunately lost on Penalties, but were fantastic throughout.

Well said, I have been extremely fortunate in life that I have been very lucky to only be out of work for a very small % of my life. I can't even begin to imagine how I would have coped given Gavin's massive effort to get work without any luck for so long.

Good to see this has a happy ending, unfortunately there will be hundreds or thousands of others who sadly don't.

Indeed fella. I think many of us can say we are lucky in some shape or form, to have been dealt certain good circumstances in our life. Some may say we have earned our fortune(s), others will say there is no such thing as luck.

In many instances, there are circumstances way beyond our control that lead to unfortunate times. How we bounce back is probably the most important factor and having some kind of support network, likely defines if that return is successful. I'm sure there are contributors on this very forum who have had their own experiences. Sprinklings of modern poverty are usually closer to home than some would often want to admit.
