what im refering to is not JUST the lack of information coming from the meeting last thursday but the lack of news / information for the build up of the season ahead. Its the Job of Carl/club Doncaster to promote their product (the team) to encourage people to invest in the club,, did anyone ask how many season tickets have been sold this year ( I have deliberateley NOT bought one) compared to last year,, I suspect the numbers are well down. The reason why?? I truely hope that the NEWS that will be released albeit miles to late to generate a big rush to buy season tickets or get the fans excited is going to be be something BIG,,, but dont hold your breath..


Well how about this? ....
Folk are too busy to tell us until Monday at the least ....

So how cack-handed is that, what with Kyle's game tomorrow?
Kyle get's all the money left over after expenses and an announcement could have added a few more to the gate and all that into Kyle's pocket.
Are we running a business or a retirement home for business illiterates?
What is wrong with a club announcement on the website and social media, it is too bloody late for the Free Press, that goes something like this ..

Calling all Dons fans, come along to Kyle Kesik's Testimonial match on Sunday against Leeds because in the few days after it there is going to be an important announcement concerning our future which will have the people of Doncaster buzzing (or words to that effect).

That took me 2 minutes .... and put 50 on the gate at least.

Why didn't they encourage more fans down by saying there was going to
be a BIG announcement during half time of the game on Sunday instead of doing it Monday

I hope fans don't need an incentive to go to Kes's testimonial. We should all want to be there to say 'thank you' to him.

I understand everyone's frustrations about the announcement. Dealing with it on Friday would have been best but the club clearly had important issues to sort out on Kes's behalf. The statement is something that is best put in writing to everyone, not announced over the tannoy.

Agreed. Having listened to Gavin Baldwin and Carl Hall on Thursday evening, this is not something which could be announced over the tannoy mid-match. There are some contractual arrangements involved and I concur that the Club needs to announce them in a formal written statement.

The games given away unless I have misread it ... we are going professional or part-professional.
Can't see what else it would be.
As in full-time professional or part.

My guess too. Similar to Bradford. This would have to entail 3 or 4 full time new signings. Need to follow the Bradford model rather than the Eagles one from a couple of years ago.

I thought they already had.

It won't be that ... the club would be finished.

Stop trolling Geoff. I'd be very surprised if Wanderer and DM were speaking as positively as this if that were the case.

Exactly.
Even the current situation with Hull is threatening our very future.
