|Bobby Robson Dinner|
at 19:41 29 Mar 2017
Oh dear! The Bobby Robson Dinner proudly heralds a "two-course" meal. Just received by email. How celebratory!
Yes! Nothing wrong with the concept, but surely we should celebrate with at least a three course meal (three stars and all that!) and perhaps an imaginative menu. But the message to fans is not positive. Why not have a Bobby Robson Banquet with loads of Guest speakers.....?
This is a chance to make an event very special, and indeed generously celebratory, a chance for supporters to feel they are valued by our club. But, this mean hype of such an offer immediately seems discouraging. OK, more "courses" do not mean, by themselves, a better occasion, but, for goodness sakes, why not plan and promote the occasion better? Make us feel wanted?
Who is responsible for this lack of sensitivity and business wisdom? Once again (season tickets and the sudden new 60+ age restrictions spring to mind) the club has not engaged with the simple fact that such a welcome celebration for our, arguably, best manager should be special. There seems to be a lack of commercial logic here, alas. As for us lot, the fans.......

I'm sure we are all delighted that today's highly-paid English international footballers playing against Lithuania donated (as quoted from ITV's live commentary) "their match fees to a charitable organisation that they themselves run." The example of David Beckham's involvement with charity is presumably inspirational.

.....according to the Brighton Programme last night (page 21).
However, I think he's still with Charlton Athletic?
Have I missed something or is B&HA the copying and pasting department woeful? Hmmmm.
