Mission Impossible Fans Night

What a great gig! Pity more were not there to enjoy the music/banter/atmosphere and dare I say it - dancing. Besides not supporting a club event, they missed a wonderful night out.

Thanks to Dennis et al for organising it and the band - especially the singer and the saxophonist - for the entertainment.

It did look like numbers were going to be low. How many were there in the end?

But one thing I would say Wealdstone fans have been 'thrashed' a bit recently for the amount of hours they are investing into the club. Next weekend could possibly be another one of those late nights too.

It is difficult I know but I have to be honest and say that the turn out last night for a so called 'fans night' was nothing less than pathetic.

Such a pity as the band was excellent entertainment.

About 45 people attended some of whom are not regular 'fans' as such but were very welcome. I was a little embarrassed to bring new visitors to RSC for such a low turnout.

Why is this? Well is it a surprise?
Cynicism and negativity is an easy and popular trait that is fed by failure. Success derives from someone, somewhere, being positive. Try it.

You are probably right ..... if you are then they shouldn't be put on at all as this all costs money we can't afford to lose. Better to hire out the hall for a non club events with guaranteed numbers of bodies to spend money over the bar?

It was worth a go. At least Dennis is prepared to try something different.

But maybe supporters would rather just chill out, relax over a beer at their own pace, rather than take part in anything official. The positive is that for the past 3 Saturday home games, theres been a healthy number of supporters (25+) drinking past 9pm. We also must have made a killing in getting the England game on, as the place was packed between 5-630pm last week.

I believe though, that we supporters have gone above and beyond the call of duty in our financial contribution to the Vale. Expecting more is simply getting greedy, and failing to focus on getting income from other sources.

Think it was a mission impossible to do an all day-er. Hit the proverbial wall by mid evening and was unable to take any further part in the Beer-a-thon.
Dunno what it was yesterday -the game was never really out of second gear (compared to the recent treats we've been served up). I guess everyones minds ,players and fans, are distracted by what might happen next weekend.

Think the clubhouse could be seriously rocking next Saturday evening if supporters converge on it after the game.

For me it's really a case of not just having the money to spend and any money that I do have will be put towards getting into the matches, maybe a drink or two and some food. I know the football club need the money and need the support - but at the same time I need the money to pay rent etc. I can't go to everything that's put on.
