    Supporters Trust?

    As would I. However, with me not being a veteran poster here, or involved with the previous trust in any way, i'd be reluctant to take a major hand in things. Would do whatever I could though.

    Supporters Trust?

    The question that can be asked at this early point then would be "who would be willing to help out, and in what capacity?". Just for the sake of this discussion, let's imagine that the current trust folds tomorrow. Who would be willing to step forward, on any level? I'm not talking about taking control, or running things, i'm simply asking what kind of time and resources would anyone have that they would be willing to put into a new venture to begin with?

    Supporters Trust?

    Before I post anything here, i'll admit that i'm more of a reader than a poster on here, but I have been keeping up with this thread with interest. I think the question really has to be the commitment levels of the people currently running the trust. If they aren't as interested in running it, then maybe it's time to clear out and bring in some new faces altogether? A question i'd like to pose to some of the forum members who are more "in the know" than I am is what can & should be done to get the trust back on track? Let's say, for talkings sake, that the current board completely clear out, and an entirely new lot of faces were brought in. What would you do, or like to see done, to improve things?
  4. I've just noticed that there's a service called "footymad" that's advertised on Fir Park Corner, £3 per month apparently.
  5. Thanks for that Gaag, I appreciate it.
  6. I was going to start a thread to ask a question, but thought that maybe a thread like this would be a good idea, providing somewhere for people to ask general questions about the club that maybe forum members can answer. Will perhaps save there being a new thread for every question/comment. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew of a Motherwell results texting service? I thought I saw something like this being advertised a season or so ago, but can't seem to find anything now. I'm just looking for something that sends out goal alerts, half-time, full-time results and the like.
  7. I'm not sure if anyone knows for sure, but are attendance figures higher from August through October? Paying £18-£20 to sit for 90 minutes in the freezing cold in January doesn't really appeal to me. Maybe the much touted idea of summer football should be seriously considered? I'm not sure how it would work during national tournament years though.
  8. The problem is, whenever the club have reduced prices it has only been for a single game. It's no good doing that in my opinion. They should be looking to bring prices down on a consistent basis as that is the only way that such an idea will work. It takes longer than one week for word to get out that football is cheaper to go to.
  9. Couldn't agree more. It may not be worth much to the OF, what with them rubbing shoulders with Europes finest every 2nd Wednesday or so, but it's still the league cup to me. I certainly wouldn't knock back a good run in it.

    In's And Out's

    All I did was post that I heard we may be getting an Everton youngster for a bit and everyone started laughing. I didn't get the joke, so I just laughed as well

    Anyone heard anything about a young striker from Everton apparently being our next signing?

    In's And Out's

    Didn't Fraser only just arrive in the summer? I can't see him being sold or released just now, especially with only 19 year old Kosiorowski as the other back-up keeper to Ruddy at present.

    Ticket Prices

    Despite the fact that you have already said you don't think that life should grind to a halt simply because you happen to be out of work, you don't think unemployed people should be using £5 per week from their income to attend a football game? I'd say that a price-cut for unemployed people is just as valid as it is for students, especially considering the unemployment level we have in the Motherwell area. I've posted two quotes for you there chief, which shows that she's at least looking to discuss the various ideas and ways in which we would look at getting more bums on seats. Sure, she mentioned unemployment as well, but she's far from "harping on about it". In fact, having read over the thread, i'd go as far as to say that it's you who is doing all the "harping on" about unemployed fans in this thread, not her.

    Is there really any need for that kind of language now? Kind of ironic that your pulling someone up about using abusive language, yet you seem to find it perfectly acceptable to do the same...

    Ticket Prices

    I like your assumption about 90% of people who are unemployed working on the side. Do you have any actual evidence to back that up? Or are you just talking nonsense? This is a ridiculous statement to be honest, Brazilian. Looking at the months of September & October of this season, there are two home matches in each month. Thats £20 if we go by the £10 entry fee for unemployed people per month, which is £5 a week. Taking £5 from a £65 unemployment payment isn't beyond the realms of reality, is it? Your basically talking about the price of a packet of cigarettes or two pints. Wellgirl came up with some pretty valid & interesting points, and your response is to accuse her of "harping on" about getting unemployed people into Fir Park. She made something like two posts mentioning unemployed people, and also made points regarding students and juvenile ticket schemes, all of which are worth looking at.

    Home Crowd

    Quite simply, it's the prices that keep me from going to Fir Park every home game. Especially with the way things are work-wise these days. £20 is simply too steep.

    Mfc Tv

    I'm not sure what creating a podcast actually entails, but if it's done regularly and done well, it could be quite decent. A bit of banter, news, maybe even get a few old players on for interviews and the like.
  19. Thats the spirit! I'll just be watching it in the house I reckon. Any pubs going to be showing it in the Motherwell/Wishaw area?
