I would like to fully state my position in a clear and concise manner on the above.

You do absolutely nothing for me and never will. You don't speak, think or act for me in any fashion at any time in the past present or future.
so why do you keep replying 😂
You need me in your life😗

Dont be too hard on him Ron, your consultancy days should tell you that Beds only real problem is is thinking solely with the heart and never with the head? Thatís emotion for you.

We missed an opportunity to increase the fan base by not having a big enough to capacity to capitalise on the 2016 league title success. We went 31 games unbeaten in the end. But because of our limited income streams we couldn't keep hold of our manager or better players. And then the rot creeps in and we end up back to where we always do, playing these small, less attractive clubs.
Win a few games and the numbers will rise a bit but there is a feeling of apathy around with no motivation from our chairman to get people up there to share in his vision -because we don't know what it is.
I'm a season ticket holder, been a regular for 32 years and enjoyed what I witnessed on Saturday but trying to talk the floaters back isn't easy.

A terrace/safe standing area and under £20 a ticket wouldn't go amiss.  £24 is prohibitively expensive.

Not sure if the club has employees dedicated to growing the custom base but that might prove fruitful given the expansion of the town.

Remember under Cardoza Stagecoach buses did a £1 day rider ticket to the ground which is a good idea. Ideally you'd offer a couple of shuttle buses to and from the town centre.

The matchday experience is actually pretty good now and the club has put work in on that. Just need to get new punters in and retain them.

we dont think twice about paying £35 a ticket for a show/play at the Dergate or Royal theatre but would be shocked if that was charged at the church/scout hall.. and tgat is whats happening here, Sixfields  is too small and un atmospheric to charge top dollar, it needs to look more professional, which is why the tiny stands must never be converted to standing to avoid any redevelopment as Thomas was probably  hoping.

A match ticket on the day of the game is £24. That's twenty four pounds for division 4 football. That's top dollar for the level of football we are plying our trade at.

Il be back at sixfields when the stadium is finally redeveloped.
I had enough of the same old,same old and decided to see if anything will actually happen this season as it hadnít in the past few.
Iím no more confident about the redevelopment now than I was in June when I decided enough was enough.
Iím sure Iím not the only one whose come to the conclusion that actions speak louder than words and are waiting to see those actions before returning to the shiny new PTS academy super stadium.

As an aside the owner taplin of billericay has resigned(Iím sure heíd love a league club to own.....)

Surprised to see an increase from the Tranmere game today and only just short of the Cambridge figure. More school kids in the East I guess.

Pretty much comparable dates for the first four home league games of the season......(holidays, lack of schoolkids etc)

Total 20,095       5024 home fans per game average 2016/17
Total 20,108       5027 home fans per game average 2017/18
Total 17,794       4449 home fans per game average 2018/19

Relegation seems to have cost us about 11.5% of our fans.
