They will be here five years' minimum whatever happens. Pension pots look at slow growth over time as well as quick returns. They only make a serious return if we are in the Prem, and they are not going to do things like buy the buildings and land behind the SBR and shell out for stadium improvements just to let some other ownership group reap the rewards in a couple of years. No way.

I think the club (rightly given financial restrictions) wants to bank revenue based on the excitement generated by the build-up to the season.
26,000 for a dead rubber against Charlton for the last game of last season suggests they won't need to offer discounts for the Bolton game to get a decent crowd

So I expect they will come from our current players and others we will sign in the (checks calendar) FIVE WEEKS before the season starts.

Are they limited in number? Club website says they are on sale but when you click through to buy its just silver and junior memberships available.

And this Twitter post suggests the "It's Never Their Fault" brigade should realise some shady stuff was happening to Madrid fans as well
I went to Stade de France during World Cup 1998. The area around the stadium was fine by day but sketchy after dark.

Derby who only have a few players currently registered? Rude awakening coming for them I expect, going down in a much worse state than we did under Hurst/Lambert/

And Norwich will go down with a minus 60 goal difference.
For context, the atrocious 1994-95 Ipswich side that lost 9-0 at Old Trafford went down with minus 57.

Or is it accepted wisdom that our first game of the season will be away, to allow more time for work on Portman Road? I assume this is something the club can request.
Which would mean our first home game is likely to be Saturday August 6th (unless there is some TV interference)

I have nothing against their podcast per se, but don't have time today to watch the whole thing. Does he say anything earth-shattering

Another milestone achieved. Last time they went up with the "best team to ever get promoted" they came down with a minus 50 goal difference, far worse than our abject 1994-95 side that lost at Old Trafford.
Thanks to today they are on -53.
Can they hit -60 by the end of the season? I have every faith.
|25k+ for last game of the season! Pretty amazing really|

"These are the group that is easily lost though, if they turn up in their numbers after being away for years or sporadic attendance, and watch us play pit-pat with a lone striker, no service, with 1 decent shot all game and we end up losing or drawing in the 80th minute against Charlton they won't be too excited to come back."
I think that's a bit harsh, You could hardly say the game v Wigan, who are currently top, followed that pattern, We outplayed them and were unfortunate not to win.

You are forgetting the mighty ITFC SW branch. We fill modest away ends for fun, and we know the short cuts through the woods to FGR.
|Can we nip these odd Tyreece Simpson narratives in the bud pls|

If you're Ashton, I guess you cannot agree to any demand from young players for wage increases etc. You're opening yourself up to being held to ransom any time any of our teenage players have a purple patch, either for us or while on loan.
Part of me still hopes it will work out with Simpson.
