And yet he still gets occasional pelters. Unless theres instant success on the pitch hes a fraud and were heading for oblivion.

Football fans, eh.

Ha even a feel good post in Australia has fans picking the bones out of it. It's madness these days

Not 4 but there was no way the Trust and Official supporters club got on that well before.   
Well yeah... just making a few observations if that's OK with you... the writer blatantly made several things up when he didn't need to...but let's ignore that shall we?? And to be fair, I did say it was an interesting article...did you read that bit?

No idea where to put this.

When we replaced our floodlights in 2018, the new ones are LED right?

Just wondering.

With a few clubs trialling early kick off I wonder where the cost saving is expected to come from.

I was suprised how cheap LED are to run. We are probably talking circa 100 or even less if my maths and research is right.

There's obviously no indication Swindon are going down this route.

Surely everything else is pretty much constant in energy terms. Legend's, hospitality, concourse, changing rooms - all have to be lit whatever.

I must be missing something

Well should the club decide to go for early kick offs, that is me done with my ST. I cannot possibly take half a day off without pay on a Saturday. As it is I lose 2 1/2 hours money just to get to a 3pm kick off. Add in the ST. Add in the fuel as I work out of town, would just make it unviable.

I can't see it being commercially viable.   Even just thinking about Corporate tickets, who wants a 3 course sit down meal at 10.00 in the morning?  Not forgetting lost bar sales and harder for away fans to attend.

I think you could watch on Ifollow too (legally) which will lose a few in the ground but may gain a few who can't normally go.

Yeah I get that. I've not seen anywhere that says Swindon is even thinking about it though.

Just trying to make commercial sense of those that are.

That's my point I just can't see how it is for any league club.   Lower down the food chain it's a no brainer though so there inevitably is a tipping point.

Hearing the debentures should be sorted very soon too which if i am right makes us debt free apart from the interest free FL grant. Some achievement if that is the case

If early kick offs were introduced over the winter surely they could start at 1:30 as opposed to midday.

Are these the same debentures that Power was charging the club 14,000 a month interest which previous owners charged nothing for ?
We have certainly moved on a long way since those days.  Smiley
