Honestly, I don't think the standard of football has too much impact because if people want to watch good football, they can watch that on the TV. The standard of football back in the 90s wasn't anything to write home about, plus we were in the Conference, yet somehow our gates were higher? Why? Partly because it was cheaper, but mostly because the competition from TV wasn't as strong. It's highly unlikely that the standard of football at the Lamex will ever match the standard of football available on TV, so it shouldn't be our selling point. They need to offer something else that you can't get through the TV.

We didn't even have a bar until recently, and we haven't got one at the moment. From what I hear, the football is crap. The food is horrendous, despite several attempts. The beer in the clubhouse are awful (or at least it always used to be). The atmosphere was a good hook once, but that's been on a downward spiral for years (and that has nothing to do with attendances declining, it's because of the often hostile atmosphere generated amongst our own fans). As a result, the tickets don't represent good value for money.

I don't mean to be negative, but rather than concentrating on pouring money into the playing squad and marginally improving the on-the-field product, why not make every other thing that the club offers phenomenal? It will probably be a fraction of the cost, and there isn't even a guarantee that pouring money into the playing squad will work anyway.
