I think we can all agree that we’d love to see more fans attending games at the Banks’s but statements like this from Mr Pomlett don’t really do him any favours.
It’s all well and good saying we need extra fans to attend as it’ll put the club in a better position (bit of a no brainer really). How about a statement saying how you’re going to achieve this, something along the lines of:
- More catering staff or indeed staff who know what they’re doing to cut waiting times for food and drink
- Better matchday experience, anything from better pre match music and events to our general style of play.
- More incentives on ticket prices or indeed more work in the community to bring in the next generation of Walsall fans. The Education trust I work for currently have a link up with West Brom and we get 600 tickets each game to share across our 4 academies. Admittedly the students get them free and at no profit to West Brom but there’s the potential food, drink and merchandise sales.
I’m sure there’s many other things that fellow posters have also mentioned on other threads.
