Aye, going over old ground. I renewed the previous season at £340 without knowing for sure what league we'd be in and didn't grudge it (too much). It hadn't occurred to me that I wouldn't renew for this season until the announcement of the 2 week window. Like yourself I'll not be paying 30 quid a skull more for it now. I'm rebuilding the war chest for next season but if they pull a stunt like it again I doubt I'll renew, its not like we're sold out for every home game and I've bought my tickets for years knowing they're not value for money so don't feel too guilty.
Maybe being harsh but I thought it was a very cynical move by the club, it pushed me into not renewing this season. I had about 500 of the £680 set aside but I thought it was really necky so I've voted with my feet for this season. I nearly folded a few times when they brought in the interest free 4 instalments as a compromise but I'll PATG this year.
At face value I'd agree but we're not privy to all the details. If giving an extra year or two to a guy who would maybe settle on a lower wage for stability (for example) then its something for the club to consider.
Yup, think the club are missing a trick with the teens. That's the age that they'll be able to go with pals instead of mum/dad so starting their own 'adventure' with football. Get these young and passionate fans hooked on The Dee, let them in for buttons and we'll get fans who define themselves as Dees for years to come.
Aye, he was tossing it off having a whale of a time.
Some of you cats need to look at some of the other results (I know, we only care about ours), we're still unbeaten and plenty teams have had a few banana skins.
As one of life's 'assistant managers' (or beta's) I get it. Being the big cheese can be a hassle, being the underling can be cool, as long as it suits you. He's proved that he can do it so happy to duck his head back down, its how I rolled.
I don't dispute that we need a couple of forwards in (JMcP has said as much) but I think the 'obsession' with forwards is because we've become a bit obsessed with May signing. Befoe that it was Rudden.
