you cant just say that people aren't real fans just because they dont want to go and watch haven play blackpool panthers in the wind and rain in a competition that is used by most clubs as extra warm up matches

"we have the kells end for when it rains" yeah because the kells end gives loads of shelter  ::) and what happens if we do have 2500-3000 going to watch in the rain not everybody can fit in the kells end can they

the atmosphere at home games now is pathetic hardly anybody sings like they used to i think people just go expecting us to win because we have been succesful in the last few seasons

I think it will pick up when the season starts and may even start ext week with a crowd of 2,500 at least for the full time team of donny but this club should be pulling in more than 2,000 fr every game no matter for what team is playing and we are a team in a position that most team in nl1 and nl2 dream to be in so hopefully it will improve come next week but yes i will admit i didnt go to the game today because of the weather up at moresby and it was like 100 mph winds and rain and i didnt think it would be on  but thats the first and last game i miss due to that i will be there next week no dought but can i just ask somebody told me that the ground is a real mess and might not make the game playable next week any info


TOP CLASS SHOW TODAY BOYS KEEP IT GOING

its because were playing the likes of blackpool and having to pay ?12 to get in why didnt the bod cut the prices to ?6-8 today and i think more would have turned up

the nrc is a poor competiton that nobody cares about in the group stages when the season gets into full swing id expect there to be atleast 1900-2000 and when the nrc gets into the quarter final and semi final stages alot more people will attend

talking to a director today he told me if they got 1000 today they would be happy

weather was the big factor yesterday...i got up off night shift ...seen the weather...seen blackburn v bolton and spurs v hammers was on the tv...and put the radio on and stayed at home...at work last night i spoke to about 3 or 4 who did the same

weather knocked about 400 off the gate i would say

I  think  there  were  a  number  of  factors that  contributed  to  a  poor  gate.

1  The  weather  which  probably  knocked  about  3/400  of  the  gate.
2  Many  fans  don't  support  the  NRC  and  are  only  prepared  to  watch  Haven  when  the  proper  season  starts.
3  Alot  won't  pay  ?12  to  watch  these  games  especially  when  its  a  team  like  Blackpool
4  They  didn't  fetch  any  away  fans  hardly.
5 Last  2  performances  have  been  poor.
6  This  is  the  2nd  of  3  home  games  on  the  trot  which  hits  peoples  pockets.
7  Lack  of  progress  on the  ground

I very nearly didn't go yesterday, the weather was that bad.  If there was cover on the popular side I wouldn't have thought twice about it.

yeah we definatly need some cover people cant really be expected to go and stand in wind and pouring rain even if they are a "true haven fan" or a "part time supporter"
