because in the second half of the season attendances dwindled to around 2,500, plus that 3k we were getting was to watch top quality league 2 players and the club was around the top of the league.

do you think there's 3k people are going to turn up to watch a struggling mid table team week in week out when they couldnt even be arsed to turn up to watch a relatively good side flying high.

add that to the fact that we almost never had a football club this summer, and if we can play the whole season backed by 3000 fans, well i'd class that as a great achievement.

for every 100 fans over 3k we average for home league gates at the end of the season i'll give £5 to any charity you'd like to pick.

where's this points deduction the FA were gonna hit us with anyway mr knowitall?
We will get bigger gates this season I reckon. It is a mystery to me why so many people packed in watching last season, maybe they saw the writing on the wall I dunno.
Two main reasons I think.

1. Lack of spare cash - when you have to pay bills, then football takes a back seat
2. The lack of customer care bestowed on the paying fans by those in charge
2.

Well done Raj.

Out of administration and confirmation that the business deal is done as well.

Now it's time for all the moaners, groaners and knockers to get down to the ground and get their season tickets.

PS - Where is the points deduction that you continually assurred us we would get Quakerz.??
Started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left.

I would just like to add the following...



YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! :thumbup:


A new chapter unfolds for us fans. Hopefully our luck will change and the owner will manage the club in a proper manor and administration is a long long time away.. if ever again

As a supporter who first watched the Quakers as a boy standing behind the goal at Feethams in 1952 (yes I did say 1952 !! ) I have seen more ups and downs than I can remember.
This certainly counts as one of the big "up" days. I really did fear that it was all over for the club and thought I could see Houghton running off with the land development and sinking the football without trace.
Also it comes with some real optimism, I'm not going to make any forecasts but the people now running the club do come accross as one of the best groups I can think of.
So drinks tonight and a toast to a better season than we dreamt possible just a short while ago.

This is great news, let's hope that it is the start of a much brighter future both on and off the pitch.

Raj Singh seems to have his head screwed on right and hasn't come in promising the world, although it's great news my expectations for the new season haven't changed I don't think 10th/11th is beyond us.
