  1. Been to Copenhagen many times but its always work so haven't had much time to look around.

    One thing I would advise is...dont waste your time with the little mermaid....little being the understatement

     

    oh and take plenty of money

  2. Sounds like sour grapes to me

    He's had his mate Biggs begging the club to employ him as manager, the club says no and all of a sudden this crap " If you’re not allowed to manage, then you’re an employee and not a manager."

    If you are a manger then you are still an employee in any given scenario

     

    Jose is an employee

    Jurgen is an employee

     

    etc

     

    Personally I think coming out with rubbish like that shows a serious managerial flaw, "I'm the boss...you're the staff"....always doomed to fail

    dodged a bullet with Cook if thats his attitude

    It's like someone coming up to you telling you that grass is really purple. You can see it's green, and you can see they've been conditioned by bullsh*t, so you just have to say 'oh okay mate' and walk away as fast as possible leaving them to their dribbling frothing at the mouth nonsense

    you should knock up a table to go with this mate, then you could publish it as a "research paper". 🙂

    Happy clappers I wonder if you might work for swfc........ Just a thought....... 

     

     

     

    Bit lame really, I don't work for the club. I do always renew my season ticket  on the early bird deal though...The suggestion that someone has a different opinion so they must be employed by the club is a bit sad really.

     

    The comparisons with Tesco and Amazon are bull to be fair. chansiri got it right (maybe he worded it wrong) when he mentioned customers or supporters, but I totally get his point.

    It is not as black and white as that, if I went to tesco every day and bought milk that was off...I would start to shop somewhere else. If I went (and I do) to watch SWFC every week and they were "off", I wouldn't start to support the pigs. there is a huge difference between a customer and a supporter. We have been served off milk for years....but we still go.

     

    I totally get that many people have committed to buying a season ticket in advance and whilst they could afford to pay for it then, things have changed now and people have lost jobs.

     

    But this so called "research paper" just panders to people like you and is not at all realistic. Prices have gone up whilst season ticket numbers have also gone up..so go figure that against your tesco/amazon model. there's no mention of this in this "research paper".

    Also, around half the people who have bought season tickets have not asked for a refund (myself included), usually "research papers" look at all factors.

    This is just yet another dig at the club thinly veiled as "research".

     

    It is not a research paper, its a presentation of selected facts and an opinion piece without any real discussion of alternative views.

    These reports/papers (essays) are completely quantitative. Football support is not quantitative, football support completely defies that logic and when essays like this lands on any Chairman's desk they will see it. "Hmm,....we charge too much, but we get more season ticket holders". "We charge too much but we have some of the highest attendances"

     

    So here I am trying to give you an alternative view...(you can thank me later) 

     

    I just want to clarify as well. If this hadn't been presented as a "report" or a "research paper", I probably would not have even bothered responding. I'm just trying to point out that this embryonic group are doing exactly what has happened before with "supporters" groups...and they are probably going to go the same way if they carry on with the same model... despite their good intentions. 

    this bullshit will appear on twitter and Facebook soon as fact. If you want to be seen as  reputable supporters group then do the basics right..

  5. "It is worth remembering that season ticket holders’ use of Ifollow to watch home games does not generate any short-term revenue for the club"

     

    It's also worth remembering (and mentioning) that it does reduce the amount that the club need to refund at the end of the season. I read earlier (googled) that the club receives all home ifollow revenue sold through its own website and revenue generated from the first 500 away passes sold.

     

    I'm sorry, I know Chansri is the devil reincarnated to some people at the moment and I'm not defending him at all, but this report is just a news of the world piece, full of errors and speculation and opinion.

  6. These "reports" to be fair are  big load of meh and the cheek that it is presented (and I quote) as a "research paper", this will pander to some, but its more like a school essay. I'm sure you have got permission from the copyright holder for the image that you have used on the first page? These tend to be considerations that are made when publishing a "research paper".

    Knocked up in a few days of googling, its also interesting how selective they are. They compare one point with club a and b, then another point they compare with club c.

     

    Load of rounduns if you ask me and as loaded as a loaded gun that is loaded with a massive load.

    Oh and without any references to the source of the information its pointless as "research", generally "research papers" tend to read include sources so the reader can cross reference and make up their own minds.

     

    I still have the minutes from a previous supporters group meeting that I attended many years ago (with some others on here). I recall the leader of the owlstrust (I think it was called then) referring to people who use the internet as "anoraks" and announcing that "e mail is a passing fad".

     

    If you're not careful you'll end up going down that path.

    Paah "research paper"

  7. Why would you go in to training with £400 cash in your wallet? even more so when in the covid era people are advised to use card payments.

     

    I would expect more bull like this to come out though in the next few days in response to Chansiri telling the press that pulis threatened to phone in sick if he didn't get the answer he wanted in time (see Joe Crann's story in Fridays star).

    Its all getting a bit tedious now

     

    Its fairly obvious who the bad egg is in all this..well done DC for getting rid rather than letting it carry on

    A couple of the nationals (The Sun and The Star) have picked up on it and suggested he could face a ban, but I suspect that’s speculation on their part rather than any actual knowledge of what might happen. 

    No offence

     

    but the "sun and the star"

    says it all really, how about a real journo pick this up

    Dave from Rivelin is still watching that video now.  Nailed on.

     

    My last response to you personally

    sexual abuse is not acceptable at any level, I work with many, many survivors of sexual abuse.

    You saw Callums response, it needs dealing with not just shrugging off

    Noticed it in real time yes. Patterson seemed to laugh it off.

     

    Completely disagree and as you can see from the video above, Patterson is clearly looking at the ref as if to ask are you going to do something about this.

    It was really noticeable as well Patterson's reaction when he sat down after being subbed, if you remember the camera man followed him and it was there for all to see.

     

    Whether that is because he was annoyed at being subbed or annoyed at being sexually assaulted who knows.
