Thank you, lincoln, for your astute assessment of the game. More scary would be your desperate attempt to be top of the member's league.

not impressed with that at all, granty is a quality keeper but why doesn't he come off his line and cut out the through balls that are clearly his, also i'm getting fed up with our middle of the park, loads of huff and puff but very little constructive play with the ball, we need to pick up in this dept. and maybe we will have a chance of the playoffs, i hope brian has his eye on someone for the transfer window

The fans, around 10,000 or so judging by the average attendence figures have been priced out of going to the game. I know I'm harping on about this again but it's the agm next week and they should understand why attendences are down. Wenesday fans are still here but just can't afford to go. Watch the attendence on boxing day, I'm guessing that will show the hidden numbers.Not just because of the kids offer but tradition says it's Wednesday on Boxing day. Now on a different tack, if we are to buy players it will mean we'll have to sell players to finance this. We shouldn't get upset by this, it's just a fact of life. Grant and Beevers would seem to be flavour of the month, unless thanks to his sligt spark of life someone inquires after Clarke (differing opinions on that one I might suggest). If we are forced to sell Grant what do you think are the chances of getting Turner back from Everton? If it's Beevers how about returning Spurr to the Central role? The only thing that matters is that we get a good price, if we have to be a selling club let's make sure it's to safeguard the future by paying off the debt and giving a little to BL to help build the squad. I like the rest of you would prefer not to be a selling club but (returning to my original point) if the pricing policy remains unchanged then the club will be losing out on the income that could be earned on match days by providing services to larger numbers of people. These larger crowds would in turn provide a better atmosphere and potentially help the team's performance. Oh well if things remain unchanged let's just dust off Sam Hammam's Wimbledon business plan. Milton Keynes anyone?

i agree robc, but don't want to see our best players leaving at the mo, has anyone read "in off the post" in saturdays green un, the statistics used by mr hesketh make for good reading and make the owls board seem about a million miles out of touch with the supporters, come on wednesday, we are in a good league position, a little investment and astute fan massaging could make all the difference

Lookw here we are with so little money, especially compared to certain other clubs int he division who have spent millions only to be a couple of places above us. I agree - if the club were smart they would reduce prices to bring in bumper crowds (and therefore probably wouldn't lose out much if any income) and would make loads more in refreshments and club shop sales. It's not rocket science is it?? Awful atmosphere on Saturday and a dull game to match.
