I was a stay away due to losing interest, hope and losing that something that makes you want to go and support your team on a Saturday afternoon. That day we sold fox and dann tipped me over the edge. Came back with my family when keates took over in what became one of our worst seasons on record… I have that something again now onwards and upwards. UTS
I never was a Stayaway - I never saw the point. Staying away and depriving the club of funds didn’t hurt Bonser: he still got his pound of…sorry, rent money. It just meant that the manager, whoever it was, had less money to sign decent players. It’s time to rally behind the new regime: UTS!
Thing is though, it seemed no matter what revenue was being made by the club ie player sales, we never saw any investment, yes maybe it was paying off loans and whatever else behind the scenes but we weren’t to know this as nothing was being communicated but on the footballing side, the side we can all see as fans, we saw nothing hence the dismay amongst fans
The fact that LP is communicating with us and letting us know where the money is being distributed and how we can contribute makes me want to start going again and feel like I’m making a difference
The thing is,it’s not a logical decision,or a financial decision when a stayaway decides to start attending again,It’s something you feel inside,(or not as the case may be).I don’t think that anyone who has stayed away for as long as I have can encouraged to go back by people saying “it’s different now with LP and DC in charge” or “you’ve got to support the new Regime”. People will make their own minds up,just as they did when they decided to stop attending.
