Could people attending this meeting please raise with the club about having a match for Tony Parkes to raise funds for alzheimer's or make a match day Tony Parkes day and let him walk the teams out an

This isn’t intended as a thorough summary of the meeting, but here’s what I took away from it. This is from memory, not my notes, please consider this my observation and interpretations.   T

He's wasted plenty more money besides that as well. He gave Mulgrew a 2 year extension and since that extension began he has played just once. Smallwood was given a year extension and since that year

When was this magical hour that I see mentioned every now and then?!

Looking back, I can only find us in the top 6 of this league twice since relegation in 2012.

22/08/12 - 06/10/12 Just after relegation, we bounced around in the play off positions for around 6 weeks or so, even spending a week at the top of the table.

22/11/14 - 06/12/14 Two weeks spent in 6th place after a 10 game unbeaten run, we then lost 2-1 to Sheff Wed at Ewood and never got anywhere near again.

I think it was between a 3pm and 5.30pm game which might be why it isn't easy to find.

I wonder which bits will be left out...this time.

Please let me know.

I like the justification for 'taking advantage of poor fans with the 3rd kit': "It sold out .It's one of our best sellers".  ☺️

We kicked off early one Saturday and therefore when the whistle went we were in the 6. Once everybody else kicked off we weren't!

20th October 2018.

We were the early kick off, 12pm against Leeds. Won 2-1.

There were 3 or 4 teams that could overtake us in the 3pm's.

Most of them failed, but Norwich won with an 84th min goal, so what's that? -about 4.40pm. We were in 6th place for appox 3 hours.

They went 6th, we dropped to 7th never to be seen again. Norwich went on to win the league, we finished 15th.

I was told last night that a Supporters Consultation Meeting took place on Thursday but this is unsubstantiated. According to the friend who told me neither of Waggott, Cheston or Silvester were there with Greg Coar and Lyndsey Talbot taking the questions.

Has anybody else heard anything?

taking questions from who ?

and how did these individuals know about it when they are supposed to send invites out to all the individuals and groups who usually attend. e.g. Josh would have been contacted on behalf of BRFCS.

Sounds very fishy even by their standards.

I have given you all the information I was given apart from a question about season tickets. Allegedly it was said that they were waiting to see what league we are in before they are advertised.

If there was a meeting somebody from the various fan groups should know. I got the story second hand but I was told who the originator was and I have no reason to disbelieve him.

We’re usually invited to Fans Forum and Supporter Consultation Meetings and haven’t heard of either being arranged.

This was NOT the normal supporters consultation meeting.

It was a consultation with fans over Zoom about the club's approach to next year's season tickets. Fans Forum members were invited but the club also invited others too. I flagged the meeting up on the Fans Forum thread a couple of weeks ago when a question was asked about fans consultation in that thread.

There were no answers provided - it was very much the club wanting to gauge fans' opinions on how sales should best be handled.

The club was represented by Greg Coar and Mike Graveston from the Commercial team and Lynsey Talbot.

What did this invited group offer as suggestions? 

Also, I hope the very real threat of a collapse in sales was brought up. Not just a round table of mutual back slapping; ‘well I’ll be renewing’, ‘gotta get behind the club’.

Thanks. Will there be some minutes available of the meeting?

Is it a promising sign that the meeting was hosted by the excellent Greg Coar and Lynsey Talbot and the other gentleman I haven't come across as opposed to Waggott and Cheston?

If I were in charge of the Club I wouldn't leave Waggott in charge of the vending machine after the Brockhall debacle.
