It's dependant on how many season ticket holders you have.

Crowd was very disappointing, I brought 4 extra from st bees alone.  BOD,  continue to shoot the club in the foot - is that because the takeover isn't actually off? - that is what I have heard. Game was awful, but our defense was excellent along with Thompson.  Other than that it was it was dire.

The takeover has gone and so will the club unless the BoD start being fully open and honest and stop hiding behind "non disclosure" statements that the other party clearly having adhered to

you have to question the nous of the board. Losing 6 quid on every speccie
you also have to question whether whitehaven wants a team with that crowd today

To be honest we seem doomed

I think a lot of fans have given up. Haven are (and seemingly will be) stuck in a loop of no longer being able to survive in their current form. It's 8 years since the last time they were here. I like many can see the same happening again.
It won't be a popular suggestion but they have to try something different, the only way I can see is the merger.

Exactly marra.  Yesterday shows this club is in crisis and burying there heads in the sand is going to finish the club off.

Just under 600 is poor considering the price was dropped. It does make you wonder if the people of Copeland actually want a team. Maybe championship rugby if we ever get promoted might entice a few back.

We do need clarity from the BOD on our exact financial position but that said they do a thankless job and I’m sure put in many hours unpaid to keep our club going

It looked more than 500 there yesterday, but the big thing for me is how we advertise games, we've got a little board on the way into town with who we play next on and thats about it.
The forum, Twitter and facebook are great for people who use social media but theres alot that don't.
Have the club got rid of the burger van now as well? And are doing it ourselves? If so thats a good call just need to have a fridge for cold soft drinks cause the bottles were warm yesterday not good in that heat for the kids.
