Vacuum packed coffee

I try to be as positive as possible but there has been a huge vacuum in information from the club. We have seen that the fans' forum, started with good intentions but has become a public relations exercise: no disrespect to the FF members, who have done their best, but whenever a difficult question has been asked the answer has been avoided and massaged minutes issued.
We are down to a hardcore of attendees at matches (attendance report to follow in due course) and we are not easily fooled. In the absence of information/liaison/encouragement we can only assume the worse.

When will the club wake up and smell the coffee?

I might be wrong but it seems to me that fans forum members have stopped posting on this site recently. Any reason???

Being a member of the 'Fans Forum' was the final nail as far is my Headingley attendance went. I have to say that your first paragraph matches my experience, Almo.

The club do not care about its supporters. A club like Coventry which is in division drew in nearly 2,000 spectators. They have a close affinity with their supporters and wasps just a couple of miles down the road. Next season we will have more away supporters than home

There's enough doom and gloom in this world without visiting here. (Sm103)

No offence Gelbel, but are you not one of the moderators on this site? I would have thought that it would be of concern to you and others to try to keep this site going. So please, put us "doom mongers" in our place and post something to lift our spirits. Almostatyke can't keep this going on his own! Let's have something to smile about!

There may well be good news and developments ahead, but the Fans Forum members have to keep it confidential until the club allows them to release it.

"A close affinity to W*sps"? Do me a favour.
