  1. The final podcast of the season is a packed three-parter. In Part One, we meet Rovers supporter Sam Grimley from Horizm, who explains how his private life & working life have crossed paths to the benefit of both parties. We learn all about how to optimise digital inventory…no really... In Part Two, Bill Arthur narrates a chapter from Daniel Gray's "Extra Time" - the return of a former player - I bet I can guess who you are picturing when you listen to it. Finally, in Part Three, & the panel of Hollie, Linz, Matt, Mike, Scott & Stuart dissect the season just ended includin

    I suspect it is adjacent to zero.
  6. Yes, but they struggle to stay up, Rotherham Utd. https://footballeconomyv2.blogspot.com/2019/12/rotherham-turns-profit.html?m=1
  7. Hoped for Top 6, expected Top 10 & 15th in the end possibly flattered us with the wins over Huddersfield & Birmingham. Potentially 10 departures from the 20 named in the squad yesterday, massive concerns for next season.
  8. The issue is less about “whether”…more about “how” & also I suspect, having a clear & specific objective would I believe help to galvanise support. FWIW - the game on Saturday is so very low-key, the k/o time means news stories from the PL will dwarf any attention as soon as our game ends. It’s in the middle of a pandemic…I just think it’s a flawed approach at this point in time that risks alienating potential supporters of the cause. Some kind of NAPM feels like a much more nuanced campaign that could allow people to register protest in their own, different ways but would be mor
  9. In this context what precisely does “grow a pair” mean ? Ignore the risks of a pandemic ? Risk acquiring a criminal record by committing criminal damage /assault (as some Utd fans did) ? …& that will make our owners sack the manager ? The logic doesn’t bear scrutiny….IMO of course.
  10. Your anger and concerns I believe are entirely justified, but the bit I am struggling with is what do you realistically expect a protest on Saturday to achieve ? It’s a dead-rubber, BCD game in the middle of a pandemic with little or no media coverage. Isn’t a more effective way to protest at the moment via the wallet ? i.e. Something that Waggott would have to explain to Pune ?
  11. I think it’s also worth recognising that its also a dead-rubber, BCD game, at the end of the season, in the midst of a pandemic. Said it before in this thread, season ticket sales will be the acid test of supporter mood.

  13. I would argue that the most effective form of protest is doing what your adversary least wants you to do. In the current circumstances, that is probably withdrawing all discretionary spending at Rovers. Some will abandon their season tickets given recent events. Some might be persuaded to delay season ticket renewals to at least send a message. Some will want to renew season tickets anyhow... but might be persuaded to suspend spending in the club shop. In the current climate, a physical protest when matches are BCD & not televised is likely to be sub-optimal. Waggott ha

  15. Season ticket sales is where the protest will manifest itself
