I agree. If you are in any way involved, I am happy to volunteer to be one of the "Group".

Please PM me if interested.

PG

Nick et al said it would be advertised via the Offy site and anyone can apply.



Cheers,

Rich

Nick is just as approachable as Bob and probably needs us more because he has many underlings, to get a grass roots perspective. I agree that this group would be a good idea and would be a great way of inter communication. As Glen says there needs to be a mature relationship established between the club and the fans.

NB said that information on the 10 - 12 person Fans Forum will be posted on the website in the near future. It will be managed / advised by an external source

Subject to the points of reference of the Forum, I think it is a pro active, positive and innovative move by the club to engage with the supporters in this way.

I am sure that out of the scores who turned up last night and the many who were unable to attend, that there are many qualified and passionate supporters who would do a great being part of the fans forum

I probably will not apply, as I genuinely believe that there are better persons than me. However, I will fully support the forum and look forward to an increase of fan participation and influence and the benefits that I believe that this initiative can bring to all

There are fans on here that should strongly consider applying.

We have some outstanding players,I agree we are still short in some areas but a good coaching team will improves us massively and the only way is up.

Perhaps not many people felt that way OB?
I think most Bath fans think we can do a lot better with the squad we have, and don't share your view.

Well just compare the 2 match day squads that get posted on Friday. Then, even more scarily, look at who is not in those match day 23's....

I think you should apply FS. The forum will need a good cross section of Fans as it wont just be about the Rugby on the field.

My Forum " team" would be;
1. TCM
2.CC
3.Stir
4.Anne B.
5.Marshie
6.Mike Taxi
7.Susanne
8.Glen
9.Fair Shout
10.Bod { i know he would never be involved , but he would add some " colour" to the meetings, also he is ALWAYS moaning , so this would give him a chance to " put his money where his mouth is" as it were.}
11.Bri
12.joehousewife



There are many others that could do a great jobm but that's my choice. I to would love to be involved, but that's never going to happen.

"I think something subserviant is required given the track record!"

Not sure what evidence you have for that assertion.
Most successful organisations recognise the need for a range of personalities and different views during discussions, feedback sessions and policy making. Very important to have people on board who are willing to challenge (preferably in an acceptable way). It's not always comfortable but there's no meaningful progress if the organisers / leaders are content to surround themselves with sycophants.

Since when has Bod needed any evidence for his assertions - he's become a parody of himself, and has crossed into "troll" territory nowadays (IMO)

Yes Glen, they were good meetings, but I think we are now into many more employees of the Club who have different ideas about 'customer match day experience', marketing, themes, brands etc. Nick Blofeld is not in the same style as Bob in any way - and that is not a 'value judgement' btw.

Iwasn't talking to you OEC!

But as you can't get my drift, there isn't much point in trying to explain the way the Club is run now as against the way AB and BC ran it, and tied into that is the culture and priority given to 'marketing'. Is that clearer for you?
Good.

I'm as much against the transformation of watching rugby into a "retail experience" dominated by "brands" as anyone but where does the fault lie?

Last week Paul Ackford described the English domestic game, when commenting on the relegation farce, as tawdry.

I think he has a point but are the people behind the Premiership clubs to blame? Or is it our, "the fans", fault for allowing it to have happened?

Who controls the clubs and the game they play?

I think you may have invented a word there.

I just remember it being arrogant and embarrassing, and at the time an indication that the then new "business" team that AB brought in had no idea what they were doing, and weren't rugby people.

Similar stuff to what yuu're saying now I guess.

Perhaps Stu,but that initial naive professionality was quite innocent, plus they knocked out decent Bath Waxed Jackets for 25 a pop which I always thought was a belter of a bargain!

It was an awful slogan but that was in the very early days of professionalism when not just Bath but other clubs didn't have a handle on things. BC wasn't even involved until many years after that episode so i think you use a very poor example which weakens your position in your seemingly endless struggle with BOD which, while occasionally entertaining, is also a bit tiresome - maybe you two should just get a room!
