Can see attendance being a good bit less than 700 on Saturday. There’s normally a gang of about 12 of us (including kids) sat in The East Stand but none of us are wanting to risk another afternoon like last Saturday and so we’re all giving it the swerve.
I thought our manager had a pedigree as a Premier League midfielder. By sitting the two central midfielders in front of the defence to try and ensure our solid but slow centre halves are not exposed, we’re handing complete freedom of the midfield to the other team. How can he not see this?
Unless something drastically changes quickly this weekend’s Trophy attendance should give Mr B a good idea on where to set his budget for next year because that’s where the league attendances will quickly drop to.
I’ve been a regular at The Shay for the past 40 years and have had a season ticket for the past 25 seasons. If Jamie continues to serve up the dross we’re being offered at present I shan’t be renewing my ticket. People can talk about loyalty but fundamentally we’re paying to be entertained and there’s been precious little entertainment since early September!
