I actually didn't know what the game of kerplunk entails, it's the straws and the ball one isn't it?


Yep, marbles and sticks in a vestibule. You load the vestibule with sticks via holes in the sides and put the marbles into the top via a larger hole. Each player takes it in turns to remove a stick, until the ball{s} fall. How exciting.

I think they make ''Anthony Hall'' proof ones now though. They have plastic smooth ended sticks/straws, instead of varnished spiky wooden ones and plastic balls with air holes {like a mini practice golf ball}, instead of glass marbles.

Just incase little ''Anthony'' swallows said balls or tries to jab himself in the eye since he's that fucking retarded. In fact, I think Anthony Hall actually raises the IQ of every kid with a learning difficulty - so at least he's inadvertently doing ''something'' right  Roll Eyes

I still expect a last minute rush mind.

A 10% reduction would be my guess*. Pretty damaging


* I think that was the trusts survey results wasn't it?

I expect a much bigger drop off than 10% given those numbers.

If the club was budgeting for 3.5k thats a 35% drop off year on year to start with. Do we sell 2.5k in the next 2 weeks when there has been no communication from the club at all?

I don't think so.

This is the downwards spiral of trying to run a sustainable club when the club is doing fuck all to improve income streams going forward.

Last years holding up of hands and appointment of Flynn will have helped. Nothing this year.

We’re not renewing and it’s nothing to do with price - they could drop it to £250 and I still wouldn’t buy one.

I just don’t want to witness, in person, just how far we’ve fallen and with the expectation of falling further.

The levels of incompetence are mind blowing.

Not backing Flynn with a proper squad looks a horrendous idea now.

The annoying thing is it would only have probably taken two or three more signings to have been a decent squad.

Was it ever confirmed as to the nature of his departure. Feels very much like he left as opposed to was removed.

Think he deserved more backing 100% and showcased what he could do somewhat with a fit side in the first nine games. However, his stubbornness as a manager left a lot to be desired and the performances towards the end of his tenure were truly pathetic. Not that Gunning improved us at all though but can’t particularly say I was too impressed with Flynn

Flynn was 0-7 down at home to Aldershot. End of story.

Not backing him with a full squad of players was suicidal but it would have been suicidal no matter who the manager was. I would have liked to have seen what he could have done with the Jan signings. He was his own worst enemy with his lack of tactical awareness though.

Good news on the low season ticket sales so far. Could create an immediate short term cash shortfall. Just want to accelerate the decline really now to force change of ownership.

It's been referenced in other threads that Paul Nicholls of Elite Management Agency arranged a lot of January signings. Down a rabbit hole tonight but guess who acquired First Touch Pro Management from Michael Standing when he ceased control of it in light of the Power case?

Exactly this. Renewing is personal choice of course however doing so will just keep them in situ for longer

funny how after posting our worst finish ever, making absolutely zero effort at seemingly anything, doesn't pay off in getting bums on seats.

I'm not sure what Clem's game is, but it ain't football ownership. It's more like Risk, or Kerplunk.

Who knows what the long term situation of the CG would be with no football club attached. A crumbling edifice to good times gone. Maybe they are in it for the long game. You only have to look at the greyhound stadium. The council insisted a new stadium must be built before permission would be granted for additional housing. They now look to be caving in on that one.
