    With the deadline coming up Monday evening for cheap tickets I can’t understand why the club is so quiet. I know it is difficult with the team in such bad form Thursday excluded. However you would have thought they would have been pro active this weekend. Anybody know the total so far?

    Having attended the other night (Thursday), I was kinda expecting no more than 11K to attend. Perhaps the Chairmen have looked at this, and felt it would be a bad move to 'Bang that drum' right now.
    Who knows ........ Let's see how Tuesday goes - if all is good - We might see a further extension to the deadline ?

    To be perfectly honest I think the club have conseeded the take up was never going to reach the dizzy heights of previous campaigns. The damage to season ticket sales was done when we lost form and McCall left the club.Since then we have had nothing but unrest and uncertainty surrounding the club with very little news regarding what direction and approach we will be taking next season.
    Some supporters will feel it's worth a punt even though they are not happy others will say enough is enough and take a breather from Valley Parade.
    If we move 12K then the owners can count themselves fortunate so many still Believe as the club marketing want you to.

    Well I have bought mine, but I really want to see improvement this season, so it is not a blank cheque, but they gave themselves 3 years, so that is what they get.

    What do you expect when the players downed tools for last 3 and half months.

    This gutless team couldn't beat or out play 10 man Shrewsbury.

    1 day after the deadline, Rahic will announce new investors, a big new sponsor, a 5mill playing budget for next season and a 2 yr contract for Grayson.
    Then he will release a statement saying "Ha ha suckers. You should have believed, you can stick you're bantams family up your arse"

    Seriously if as we have been informed by Park - Rupp is not willing to put any more money in and no new investors are found - we are going to have a smaller playing budget. We will not see Grayson staying - so it points to a possible season of struggle - no promotion in the third season as the new owners targeted.
    Obviously if they can find a manager ala Hurst at Shrewsbury - then we might have a promotion challenge with a lower budget

    But the deadline is noon on Monday so it would have to be extended before then.

    I think there is a slight difference @HUDDERSSBANTAM@HUDDERSSBANTAM the old owners had no spare money invest whilst these two (certainly Stefan) has money but is @Park bantam@Park bantam is correct he won't spend it.
    Here is where Stefan's passion lies, http://www.scuderia-gt.de/news/ I'd suggest you need big money to be involved in this sport.

    I have been wondering the same thing, we need to get the place bouncing again.
