Fair play, he's commented and given a reasonable explanation of where we are at. But, the constant reference to COVID makes me wonder if he's just using that as a cover for poor management and planning - how have other clubs have rode the stormy seas and we haven't. As far as I know we are the only club to go part time. I still remain sceptical of this bargain basement operation and have no faith they would use my money wisely, so my view hasn't changed, keep my brass in pocket, pop down for a game/social, and that's your lot.

For me, I like to see how the attendances hold up if we don't win at least 50% of our first 6 home games. We have the following
1) Widens :- 50/50 on how this will go
2) Haven :- Hopefully tight win
3) York :- 50 / 50
4) Bradford :- Heavy loss
5)Dewsbury :- 50/50

I think we need to win at least 3 of those home games to keep any early fans interested. Losing to widnes would not be an issue, but if we lost the first three home games, I think we might struggle to keep attendances on par, and start to ship fans again

When Hughes took over we were averaging over 4,000 and the talk was of how to get to 5,000. Now the average is 300 and the talk is of how we get to 5,000. Unbelievable.

:CRAZY: The ramblings of an insane man. 5000 fans WAS the target when I told him it was, back in 2009. He ignored it then and now it's too late.....as for banging on about covid, EVERY sporting club on the planet got hit, but not all of them decided to alienate their fans and move grounds in the middle of it.
As for the corporate hospo malarky....the club didn't even fill trailfinders facilities FFS......
...as I say. The ramblings of a wealthy man throwing more good money down the drain.....he's hire a coach with no track record of success and patted himself on the back for doing so and apparently because we've got a few logos on the shirt, the commercial blokes ego gets a massage too......lol.....
Circling the wagons there David....I'd suggest you stay away from internet forums because you seem a bit insecure. :SUBMISSION:

Yes I thought it was a reasonable effort which gave some context.

I too am not convinced that COVID can be entirely to blame for the poor crowds.

I also note the specific references to poor performances. The assumption has to be that there will be more understanding by senior management this year if results go badly ( the losses last season seem to have taken management by surprise and badly received). There seems to be an acceptance that that there will be games where we are beaten. So that frankness is appreciated although the concern remains that if you are looking for 5k crowds the on field product is an important part of driving that and that will be a challenge.

I didn’t read too much into this it’s a cheap and cheerful thing to say. The problem is you only get one shot at it. Remember the drive to get people to attend the TO game. There was definitely some response to that but what happened...an absolute hammering. People don’t really enjoy that type of thing. So I suggest bring a friend to a game you think we might win or will be close. That might get a few coming back.
