The money tied up in Brockhall is what will save this club when all of the chancers and vultures and scavengers and the rats have made their coin.

If it is cashed in now so that a small group of people can get rich at the expense of the club then we are heading into oblivion.

Nail on head it provides that infracstructure and security for a very last resort, that's why it shouldn't be touched. Even if they mothballed some of it.

Too many are only too happy to sail along with Venkys writing the cheques without a thought to the future. It's all too easy, stale and comfortable for people down there and a lot of fans.

Taken for granted is the better description but it will not last forever. That's why the backing they give and have given needs every last drop squeezing out of it. Every penny needs investing wisely and EVERY asset protecting.

This management regime did that for about 18 months then have been floundering around wasting a lot of it since then.  That's obviously going to continue for now but one day they'll be gone and one day no cheques might be being signed.

That's when you need something to fall back on.

Who?

The guy on the FF is credited as Mushtaq Khan. Do we know if he’s a Blackburner?

Sorry, that’s who I meant!

According to the minutes weren't season ticket prices meant to be announced the end of May/ beginning of June. Nothing so far!

Just a stock answer that was to make it look like something is happening.

Much like the alleged parting of the ways with Mowbray!

The Club Shop has been closed for a shop makeover now so I imagine that come first week of July we will be unveiling the new kits and other club products. 

Was open today I was in with grandson

Yeah, they will need to take down all the Umbro signage and replace it with Macron.

Think today was the last day for opening. Just posting what Rovers tweeted this afternoon/evening

Yep plus get ready for the launch of our new kits and training range, etc. Wouldn't mind a new Rovers shirt before we go on holiday

Meanwhile League One side Sunderland had sold 21,000 season tickets by 1st June.

Good job there's no pandemic on Wearside.

Great effort by them.

If only our supporters could be like that. Instead of not getting one cos they don’t like the manager or owners or price of hot dogs.

So Rovers being one of the few clubs to lose fans this summer is because our fans are uniquely disloyal and negative, then? Not because there’s, you know, perhaps some underlying issues at this club?

Interesting view.

It’s more to do with 10 years of neglect from the owners, I’d say. But then, I imagine you knew that already.

You know what I think is even more stupid. Not liking the manager, the owners, the price of hot-dogs and still paying for it.

Ridiculous comparison as Sunderland is one of a very small handful of clubs in a unique position when it comes to a large hardcore.

We had decent gates in league 1 but by no means as good as they should have been. We were winning most weeks, had a good side and got promoted. Yet it was still mostly not much more than the hardcore turning up most weeks.

We got 25k home fans on for the last game yet the season after numbers didn't flock back at all it was barely anymore than the league 1 regulars.

Are you so far blinkered in your desire to slag fans off you can't see there is a real problem here. One thats festered for a decade and will never be cured overnight, certainly not without some major strides forward.

Prices and hanging onto a busted flush manager and chancer of a ceo whilst walking back into a transfer embargo are not steps forward are they. 

Stop talking shite lad.

You're right - the only thing keeping me away is the hot dogs ( well almost )

There’s a sale on the concourse with some great prices on the outgoing umbro stock 

Got quite a lot for the lad including last seasons away kit for £5 and a rain jacket for a £5 and a walkout top for myself 

They have some match worn bench jackets for £15, you can even get Ben Bensons

I think we’ll likely see it on Thursday or at least some hints at it 

The Umbro deal ends Wednesday
