A quick search on the club website indicates that, on 15 July last year, 1,663 had been sold for the 21/22 season.
On 30 July 2020, the figure for the 20/21 season was 1,150 ( I suspect there was much reluctance as it was the first year of covid)

No, no, a thousand times no. If it doesn't happen now it never will.
The company now being employed has done similar work for both Bournemouth and Wolves. I would imagine they, like us, would have investigated the viability of the company and their ability to see projects through to...
Having been invloved obo the Trust in a number of meetings during the planning, contract letting and execution of the construction of the Stansfield Stand, a project which, several times, was in danger of not coming to fruition, I am personally happy to let those involved in the negotations this...
Where is Ajose now? No mention of him in ages. If he has left now, is anyone else filling that role?
I could see Podge doing a pretty decent job as a coach. Great personality + lots of experience. He could also be a standby striker on the bench for a further year or two.
Exactly that. Any funds raised would only be used to perhaps bolster the chance of signing a player (any player wanted by Matt) that, otherwise, may not be possible.
If not sufficient raised for that purpose, to buy, or help towards, items/equipment needed for the playing side of the club.
I hadn't really intended this thread to become about what the Trust does, or does not, do and was suggesting that any initiative be independent of the Trust, but hey-ho.
Apart from anything else, even after almost 20 years, not every supporter is a Trust member.
Having made that point, I...
Hasn't the 1931 fund been primarily to help bring in a younger, promising but unproven, player and pay his wages (or part thereof)?
I am thinking more of giving Matt a 'leg up' to maybe bring in an established player that perhaps the normal budget funding would otherwise have precluded.
Happy to be shot down, but there has been some discussion on social media about setting up a supporter crowdfunding campaign (not Trust based) to throw some money into the pot towards player recruitment.
Probably not sufficient to retain Cam's services (not that he will even be available), but...
I have a strange sense of satisfaction in, having seen MKD demolish the Gargs at home, they (the Gargs) must be well peed off to think that they went through that humilation, only for their conquerors to fall at the very next hurdle.
