Have always been of the opinion that if certain supporters are unemployed/made redundant through no fault of their own,or having to survive on just the state pension I could well understand why they couldn't make this game,but honestly given the poor ticket sales so far you could be forgiven for thinking 50% of our fan base are 33 away from destitution,and I'm sure that's not the case.I must repeat again,and it's gives me no pleasure in doing so,it is a poor level of support from this town for such an important game.This criticism is not aimed at anyone on here especially,as it's obvious there are a number of very longstanding supporters such as BJ,who have done more than their bit in terms of being there for the club over many years

Yes,you may have guessed I am a big admirer of Ken Davy,as I believe he has given the club and townspeople the chance to watch a Fartown club challenging for honours once again.People go on about the old days,and I've said before I would never belittle anyone from previous eras,but since our last trophy win of 1962 I think there were challenge cup semi final appearances in 1968 & 1971,and that was the lot through approx a 40 year period,so yes I believe KD has done an excellent job pulling the club off it's knees and getting us to a couple of CC finals.Now it's up to the players & staff to finally deliver a trophy.

Anyway,I think the words of Robbie Paul sums up here,what it means to the players to have a large vociferous support at a neutral venue,and even if I as just a fan don't know what I'm on about would have thought as a former star of our game his opinions are extremely valid.

SPOT ON DL We`re now on a similar vein -Thatll convince people a lot more than offers of cheap tickets !!

and as Ive said --Ive got the polish ready !!
Maybe the recent performances have all been part of a cunning plan to finally deliver a trophy, as Wire will have learnt zip about us in the last couple of months.

It will all be put on the back burner Matt, As as been said on here counless times there is nothing like silverwear to bring in the crowds, Suddenly there will be people there who have never been to a game before, but who cares, if they are paying they are needed just as much as anyone else.
